Untimely attack on Lankan cricketers in Pak

A few hours back there was an attack on Sri Lankan Cricketers in Lahore. 6 players were injured.
One might remember this was the tour India was supposed to be part of. After the Mumbai 26/11 attacks, India withdrew and Sri Lanka in its anti-India efforts decided to magnanimously step in. The whole attempt to attack peaceful sportsmen and civilians is condemnable. However there are various levels of irony in this incident. One that while Sri Lanka is the midst of civil war, its cricketers thinking Pakistan of all places, would be safe were attacked in the bee's nest. Another is that all the claims of Pakistan that the Mumbai attacks were stage managed is laid to rest. It would be deeply interesting to see how Chindu attempts to paint the story here.

As usual, this anti-national newspaper is the only one that gives front page prominence to some lunatics in pakistan blaming India for these attacks.
