“I feel let down by my son”
The Hindu has this nasty habit of show-casing the criminal's family laments especially if they are from a specific minority community. From the report..
When asked if his family will forgive Fahad, the distraught father says: “Baap ka dil paththar ka ho sakta hai, par aap batiye ek maa kya kare? [A father can be stonehearted, but what will you tell his mother?]”
To the contrary, I felt this news article by Chindu can be utilized very effectively in any counter-psywar by out intelligence agencies to protect our impressionable muslim youth from getting brainwashed. Any parent who reads this article will try their best to ensure that their sons dont fall prey to fundamentalist propoganda.
I do applaud the father for saying that his son should face punishment for his deeds. Note that the father is not crying victimhood, or casting doubts on the motivation of security agencies. Such sane muslim voices should be highlighted so that action against returning jihdists is not politicized by fundamentalists and felows like Owaisi.
