@the Skunk: My sincere sympathies with the departed souls, those who are killing innocent people must be condemned by every one, but your logic accusing India can not be understood have your security agencies,police,Army have captured any Indian and produced before the world press or Pak press. It is not in the intrest of both the countries to level allegations without proof. You kill all these bastered we have no problem I pray for the success of the operation by the Pakistan Army at the earliest.
