Khare's wizardry

Khare is back with his histrionics. I have never seen him ask tough questions, especially of Congress, which he grudgingly acknowledges is beyond its expiry date. Here he comes out with the Khareish brilliance to suggest that India won the world up in 1983 because of Indira Gandi.

in 1996, the hawala scandal had eaten into whatever little was left of Narasimha Rao's prime ministerial efficacy; in 1999, we had a caretaker government in New Delhi, trying to cover up its Kargil failures; and, in 2003, the national mood had been fractured by the L.K. Advani camp's cold war on Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee.

Khare is creating data to suit his theory. I don't know which nation he is referring to when he is talking of national mood.

...our mass-hysteria discourse has come to believe that the terrorist challenge will be decisively defeated only if we hang Afzal Guru.

Here, he is clearly putting words into someone's mouth, once again to suit the theory he wishes to propose. No person with a sane mind would use "only" here. Khare knows this too. But he deliberately is falsifying the opposition.
