“Were “POOR” Muslims the “ONLY” victims?”

via H.Balakrishnan published on February 24, 2007

With reference to all the reports that have appeared in National Media,I
got the impression that the victims in the Samjhautha Express tragedy were all ‘POOR’ Muslims.


However,I was surprised to note that there were also ‘poor’ Hindus from Sind,who also met with a gory end.In this connection,it is interesting to read B.Raman’s Article in rediff.com of 21 Feb:


“It seems that while the majority of the 68 passengers killed in the explosions-cum-fire in two coaches of the Samjhauta Express at Deewana, near Panipat, on February 18 were Pakistani nationals, more Hindus than Muslims were killed.This fact emerges from a scrutiny of the proceedings in the Pakistan National Assembly relating to the carnage.According to a statement made by Pakistan’s Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Khusro Bakhtiar in the National Assembly on February 20, the identities of 49 of the 68 persons, who perished in the fire, have been established so far, Twenty-seven of them were Hindus and only 22 were Muslims”. This for the record please!!


Of course,this is par for the course for our’SECULAR’ English media!! As journalist Rajeev Srinivasan wrote on rediff.com,a year ago: “It appears axiomatic that to the media, the only good Hindu is a dead Hindu”.How true,Rajeev!!And even that will NOT be reported!!
