" just 4 Pakistanis took over your whole Parliament in your capital 4 years ago"

Mr. Mark Mark is absolutely right in making this observation. It is a matter of great shame and disgust that India- a great country in all respects- seems to be so poorly served when it comes to the question of being governed. This has been so since the time the country achieved its independence from British rule.

Those who made great political capital out of the fact that they had spent some years of their life in British jails ( when the independence of the country loomed large on the horizon), as well as those whom the masses adored, failed to live up to the expectations of the common Indian. Our politicians today are acting more as defenders of terrorists, whether in Kashmir or Glasgow, purely to sustain themselves in power. India, if it appears weak and indecisive today, is entirely the fault of our politicians.

The people remain as firmly resolved to extinguishing islamic terrorism from their midst, as they were about 1000 years ago. Perhaps, it is solely because of our politicians that islamists like Mr. Mark Mark conclude that "Pakistan can take over India in a split second." This brings to mind the famous Hitlerian boast of Germany wringing Britain by its neck like a chicken in his heady days of victory, and Mr. Churchill's comments on it. " some chicken , some neck !"
