All deaths are not equal, especially soldiers

Recently terrorists attacked Jammu and killed 4 people and captured 7 others as hostage. The Chindu reports the incident with usual bland candor. The fact reporting is absolutely abhorable like,
Police said two civilians, a jawan, identified as Havildar Vijay Kumar, and a Junior Commissioned Officer Naik Subedar V.V.K. Paarkashan were those killed.

Had these been a few minorities killed by so called fundamentalists the Chindu and its friends the NGO's would have risen in anger.
But unfortunately these are soldiers protecting our country.
How can they be given any respect or their families any support?
The key note of this article is,
The militants, suspected by the police to be those who infiltrated across the border under a cover of firing by the Pakistani forces, came in a goods carrier and attacked an Army checkpost in the Domana-Mishriwala area on the Jammu-Akhnoor-Poonch highway in the morning.

There are several issues with this,
1. The Pakistani government with whom the Chindu wants India to get into bed talking peace is back to its old tricks stabbing civilians.
2. Who owns the goods carrier?
3. Why is the border security so lax?
Unfortunately none of this will be questioned as Chindu resides in the heart of Chennai than the borders of Jammu. But the least it could do is support our troops, but for whatever reasons it will not.

When I started out on this post, the crux of the thought process is to shed some light on how partisan Chindu has become when it does not pay homage or even lip service to the men and women who serve our country. It treats rabid anti-nationalists and communists to high regard but shows little respect to the real people serving our country. One such person was a victim of the 7/7 attack on the Indian embassy in Kabul Mr. Venkateswara Rao.
While reading another blog more facts came about on this diplomat and patriot. Unfortunately most Indian media being the a-holes they really are would rather focus on non-issues and pseudo sick-ular news.
Props to Outlook on a real good article though.
Mera Bharat Mahan, par saala Chindu hai Shaitan

As you correctly put it, from its relative safety and security in Chennai, Chindu finds it convenient to play the secular game seemingly oblivious that credibility is lost in the game. Hundreds of soldiers die in Kashmir to defend the country against terrorist attacks and Chindu doesn't even write a word of sympathy for them.

Chindu perhaps pretends that it will be spared from jihadi bomb attacks being a secular media drumbeater.
