Sub:- (i)- Like governments Indian media should stop misleading Indians on Lakhvi matter (ii)- Not investigating (voice record of Lakhvi at Karachi control room and related matters for exposing State actors too) the main culpability of Pakistan (iii) Another detention of Lakhvi for MOPO or invoking global community for pressurizing Pakistan are meaningless (iv)- Bringing Lakhvi, Saeed and complicit Pak State actors militarily from Pakistan should be linked with retrieve of POK (v)- India should stop thinking that economic matters are more important than military matters (vi)- Indians will be MORE happy to see 26/11 culprits being brought to India than ~ 5,500 Indians from Yemen
A government which can not protect the lives of its citizens (especially civilians) and cannot punish as per law the perpetrators of crimes (and that too heinous crimes) on its citizens, is not worth the name. 26/11 was the most blatant violation of India’s territorial integrity by State sponsored terrorists from Pakistan in which 164 persons were killed including 28 foreign nationals from 10 countries and 308 were wounded at Mumbai in 2008 (The bodies of many of the dead hostages showed signs of torture or disfigurement). Hence India is rightly outraged on the release of Lakhvi (who not only conducted 26/11 from Karachi control room through phone but was also mastermind of 26/11) on bail by Pakistan High Court on Friday.
But like previous and present government of India (GOI) media is also misleading the Indian people by discussing and highlighting other and not so important details of Lakhvi case being tried in Pakistan court. Whereas the fact of the matter is that [as per public prosecutor in 26/11 case Ujjwal Nikam on many TV channels, in addition to supported by statements of Hadley (presently in US prison for 26/11), Kasab (hanged last year for 26/11) and Jindal (who confirmed that Pakistan's intelligence agency ISI and the Pakistani government helped plan 26/11)] Pakistan is not investigating voice record of Lakhvi at Karachi control room (which were all given to GOP by GOI) and related matters which has the potential of exposing State actors too - is the main culpability of Pakistan.
[With the result proper evidences are not put before Court in Pakistan and Lakhvi, Hafiz Saeed etc and complicit Pak State actors are not booked for criminal conspiracy for planning and active involvement in conducting 26/11 from Karachi control room].
Everybody knows that once voice record of Lahvi was given the further investigation was to be done by government of Pakistan (GOP) but it did not do so for the simple reason that it would have exposed the State actors in complicity with Lakhvi, Saeed etc. But GOI is not highlighting this point to the extent it is required instead GOI along with Indian media are showing red-herring to Indian people by talking about all irrelevant matters. GOI and Indian media are indulging in this anti-people activities for the simple reason that martially deficient Hindu majority India is afraid of taking military action against Muslim Pakistan (which is evident from the fact that Pakistan smaller than India tried to take rest of Kashmir militarily many times but India did not try even once). As per international law military action is imperative for bringing Lakhvi, Saeed and State actors of Pakistan complicit in 26/11 to face trial in Indian (Mumbai) court for 26/11 especially in view that GOP is doing everything (by not investigating the matter properly) to protect the culprits of 26/11 against all the norms and practices of international law.
Here it is in context to add that the talks in media about another detention of Lakhvi for ‘maintenance of public order’ (MOPO) or invoking global community for pressurizing Pakistan (for handing over Lakhvi, Saeed and State actors complicit in 26/11 to India for their court trial) are meaningless for the simple reason that (i)- MOPO will not book even Lakhvi for 26/11 (what to talk about Hafiz Saeed etc and complicit Pak State actors) and (ii)- Global community will not listen to India unless India is seen to be serious about solving Kashmir problem, which global community covertly (if not overtly after 9/11) believes that terrorism emanating from Pakistan is the direct result of unresolved chronic Kashmir problem and the solution of which is nothing but unification of J&K.
Therefore unlike Manmohan government Modi government (with projected & perceived macho image) should give ultimatum of military action for bringing Lakhvi, Saeed and complicit Pak State actors to India (through full-fledged war or limited military action as USA did for taking out Osama Bin Laden) from Pakistan (in case GOP refuses to do said proper investigation for filing supplementary charge-sheet in court).
Also GOI should start making preparations for retrieve of POK (even militarily if necessary). Though it is easy said than done given the fact that both India and Pakistan are now nuclear countries. But there is no other way out and India will have to stop thinking that economic matters are more important than military matters. Instead India should understand the importance of protecting the sovereignty and territorial integrity of India, the sine-qua-non for any progress (including economic) of India.
Indians will be MORE happy to see Lakhvi, Saeed and complicit Pak State actors in 26/11 being brought to India militarily (if necessary) from Pakistan than bringing (rescuing) ~ 5,500 Indians from Yemen.
Therefore under ultimatum of military action for bringing Lakhvi, Saeed etc and complicit Pak State actors in 26/11, India should demand said proper investigation by GOP for filing supplementary charge-sheet in court.
