India's Blame Game

What happened in Mumbai was a horrific thing. But what the Indian Government is doing now is equally horrific. It is pointing fingers at a soverign country without proof based on nationalistic fervor and to appease it's population by finding a convenient scapegoat. In this case, the scapegoat would be Pakistan. Today, an anonymous Indian politician who did not want to be named, blamed the Pakistani spy agency ISI for the bombings. Who in their right mind would accuse someone of anything without hard evidence?

And just when the peace talks were going on. Or should I say, so called peace talks. Till now India hasn't shown much acumen for peace with missing members at these meetings and delays and whatnots. Don't know about all of you guys, but I think India is not ready for peace. On one hand we have them blocking the sale of F-16's and causing a hue and cry over it through their Lobby in the US Congress and on the other side we have them building controversial dams on rivers that supply water to 95% of Pakistan. Seriously, who are we trying to fool here?

The blame game isn't surprising considering the fact that India has done it before. Remmeber the Hijacking of an Air India Jet a few years ago where the Indian media and others dubbed Pakistani hijackers were responsible only to be proved wrong when Indian nationals were discovered as the real culprits? I could name other incidences of the blame game played before but It won't help anyone. So it would be best for all of us if we could find out some real hard evidence. It is the 21st century and we are all educated citizens of soverign countries. Let's act like them shall we, mmkay?
