hi amardeep!thanks for leaving a comment on my blog.well, my frustration about that article was largely due to the apathy and taken-for-granted attitude of the west towards India.plus, the headline read "Hindu leader in India quits over remarks in Pakistan". I was irked by the headline. Couldn't it just have been "Opposition leader in India quits ..."?i was not aware of the fact that advani did lead the bunch of hoolgans to ayodhya to demolish babri masjid. news about communal riots is something that i dont like to read. so...anyways, i am sorry about that.somini sengupta may be working for a major US newspaper. but the headline that she gave to her article certainly doesnt convey the right image about India. there was a very communal touch to the headline.. linking a "hindu" individual with a statement that he made in pakistan, of his own free will!thanks again.
