CBCNN's views aired by a reader


Bugti's killing reflects a deeper malaise of ultra-nationalism that has afflicted Pakistan ever since its birth. Anyone who disagrees with the army's idea of nation-state is seen as a traitor and political opposition is called anti-national. Thankfully, in India, we don't call insurgent leaders traitors. But ultra-national forces do rear their heads at times. For them, anyone who has objections to singing Vande Mataram or is against POTA is anti-national. We need to guard against ultra-nationalism in all forms if India is to stay united.

This must be termed libel but it resonates with CBCNN views. So it gets attention in the "Letters to Editor" section.
