Link To Discussion on Shopian Murders

I posted two links related to the Shopian murders yesterday (see DD's previous post). The first is a report prepared by a so-called 'Independent Women's Initiative for Justice' and has provided the basis for the CBI's critics to assail the official investigation. The report made available on the web forum Kafila has generated an interesting discussion upon this issue since yesterday following Praveen Swami's piece in The Hindu. Interested readers may find the relevant post with comments here (see comments section).

"Praveen Swami, widely known to be an establishment person, to put it very politely....." Ha! Ha! Ha!

Praveen Swami is indeed an establishment person, that of Chindu's own establishment. He generally follows Chief's established policies of secularism, of the pro-minority variety. He usually pretends to write an objective article, but at the end will throw the whole blame on "Hindutva" elements, BJP, GoI's neglect of the alienated Kashmiris (which of course excludes the Hindus) etc.

By the by, the Marxst-Jehadi 'think' magazine, Frontline, is celebrating 25 years of its survival. The chindu is keeping mum over it, but for a few ads about the coming special issue. What happened?

Are you trying to be a journalist on a blog that nobody but bored people like me read? I mean who are you trying to connect with here, school children? You should probably start writing about Kareena Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan to get more readers. All comments seem to be coming from the same bored deranged lunatics.
