Declaration of war?

While I was walking back to the lab after lunch today, one of my friends informed of the terror attacks against the Sri Lankan cricket team. It’s terrible that six police officers were killed in this incident, although it might have been much worse.

However, words cannot sufficiently express the deep loathing at the pit of the stomach that I feel when reading the comments of the Pakistani Minister of State for Shipping, Sardar Nabil Ahmed Gabol.

“The evidence which we have got shows that these terrorists entered from across the border from India,” Sardar Nabil Ahmed Gabol, Minister of State for Shipping, told private Geo television. “This was a conspiracy to defame Pakistan internationally.”

“This incident took place in reaction to 26/11,” he said referring to the Mumbai attacks in November in which at least 170 people were killed. “It is a declaration of open war on Pakistan by India,”

Politicians like him are opportunistic parasites, who eagerly jump with glee at any human tragedy to attempt to gain political mileage. Even if you ignore his claim to have evidence of the geographic origin of the terrorists within hours of the attack (without even hinting at the actual evidence), and the obligatory conspiracy theory angle, to call this a “declaration of open war on Pakistan by India” is irresponsible garbage.
