Re: Armed Revolutionary Movement 1857-1947

We should not be referring to the Kakori incident as "Loot" or "Robbery". It was an act of Freedom fight, where the brave Indians were (a) getting their treasures back from the looters, the Brutish, and (b) hurting the cruel, exploitative regime by depriving it of resources and s...

Re: Sunni Terrorist Fragments of Unstable Pakistan - 12 Dec

According to the Pashtunwali tribal code, killing a person of another tribe can start long blood feuds. This keeps the intra-tribal rivalry to smaller levels. If the Talibums killed the Pasthun children in that Army School, they become liable for blood feuds. Was that a consideration for them? Or, d...

There are more Sikhs in TSP in NWFP than Pakjab. That is ironical, but understandable. The reason is that in 1947, the riots cleansed Pakjab, but the riots in Pathan NWFP were few, if any. This is due to the fact that '47 riots were British sponsored and cleansing Sikhs in NWFP wasn't necessary. Whe...
