In today's news LiC stabs Mu Ka (in writing of course)

As many of you might've read my blog post about Mu Ka's senile claims that Prabhakaran was not a terrorist, this news might come as a shocker.
In today's scathing editorial LiC basically echoes my statements in 'Who then is a terrorist?'  His ground work is pretty solid for once putting the DMK and Congress on the stand on this issue. He sides with the AIADMK and the people stating that they are on the side of the Lankan tamilian people and not the terrorists. But the last nail on Mu Ka's coffin from LiC was:
As for Chief Minister Karunanidhi’s differentiation between the idealistic freedom-fighter Prabakaran, the LTTE’s unchallenged supremo, and the “terrorism [that] crept into the outfit,” it is like saying that Osama bin Laden is an idealistic Islamist and not a terrorist — but the al-Qaeda is!

Well said LiC, well said. Now please expect your effigies to be burnt and police in your office shortly courtesy of Mu Ka the ever living mummy!

Does this mean that sanity is lurking to prevail on the editorial board room of LiC?

It is too early to say that... S. Krishnamoorthy...Ever since the murder of Rajiv Gandhi, The Hindu has been opposed to LTTE. As for the editorial today... it may be because, Ram had come to realise that it was not feasible to continue with ostrich policy...

Krishnamoorthy,
I agree. But it is possible that LiC is hedging bets that UPA might not be in power after this elections and a combination of third front and NDA could sweep depending on public opinion.

kuttychathan,
Well the problem here is that not taking a stance would be more costly to the credibility of the paper. Supporting Mu Ka would be literally suicide for media credibility of Chindu.

Dirt Digger has it. Editorial changes visible after first phase of elections. Rumours of Congress doing badly in AP in first phase, must have got Hindu into the "hedging its bets" mode.

Chief and his minions at Chindu were so happy that BJD dumped BJP in Orissa. But, his own comrade masters joined hands with AIADMK (ah, would Chief ever forget the police visitors to his office?) in TN and till today Chief has not bothered to comment on this alliance. I am sure readers would have seen the photo in newspapers where commies were seen, literally hands in hand with Jayalalitha!
