    How do you differentiate a militant attack from a terror attack ?

    So here is it again...Here is the narrative of BBC.

    Seven Hindu pilgrims, six of them women, have been killed in a militant attack in Indian-administered Kashmir after their bus apparently got caught in crossfire.

    Police told the BBC the target appeared to be a nearby counter-insurgency base.

    Hardline Hindu groups linked to Prime Minister Narendra Modi's ruling party have long wanted to see tough action against the armed revolt against Indian rule in the Muslim-majority region.

    The attack comes after some hardline separatist leaders said they welcomed the pilgrims - about 100,000 of whom have already completed the journey - as their fight is not with ordinary Indians.

    too stupid ? here is the article from asianage...

    Seven Hindu pilgrims, six of them women, have been died in a militant attack in Indian-administered Kashmir after their bus apparently got caught in crossfire.

    The bus was returning from the Amarnath Cave pilgrimage site in the Anantnag district when the attack took place.

    Police told the BBC the target appeared to be a nearby counter-insurgency base.

    The attack, which also left 19 injured, is likely to heighten tensions in the disputed region.

    Hardline Hindu groups linked to Prime Minister Narendra Modi's ruling party have long wanted to see tough action against the armed revolt against Indian rule in the Muslim-majority region.

    News of the attack has already sparked anger with people demanding immediate retaliation on behalf of the pilgrims, most of whom came from Gujarat, Mr Modi's home state.

    Mr Modi tweeted he was "pained beyond words", adding: "India will never get bogged down by such cowardly attacks and the evil designs of hate."

    The attack has also been condemned by separatist leader Syed Ali Geelani, whose spokesman called it "an act of terror", while outlawed armed group Lashkar-e-Toiba distanced itself from the attack, saying "it was aimed at bringing a bad name to the Kashmiri movement".

    Meanwhile, Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti, who stayed overnight with the wounded, all of whom were out of danger, promised that her forces "would not spare" those involved.

    The attack comes after some hardline separatist leaders said they welcomed the pilgrims - about 100,000 of whom have already completed the journey - as their fight is not with ordinary Indians.

    One police source told the BBC the bus was not properly registered, and should have been off the road by the time of the attack, at 20:20 local time (14:50 GMT) on Monday.

    Here is the question again, why doesn't your unbiased BBC, which edits articles on Mumbai terror attack to remove any mention of 'terror', update this article ?

    And the BBC also reported that some of the pilgrims had said this.

    Quite simple, stuff going on 10,000 miles away isn't that important and they perhaps don't see the glaring error you do. Let's face it, you claimed their entire page wasn't biased until I pointed out that everyone else was running the same stories. You get but hurt over 'militant' vs 'terrorist' even though UK press use them interchangeably. I don't take any of your claims seriously. Like I said, you have a massive chip on your shoulder, as does your friend Guynextdoor.

    Well since i saw through all, here is my quick bytes

    1. BBC definitely has more soft corner to one particular mindset based on religion, connection of employees who may be of a particular descendant
    2. UK population and immigrated 2nd/ 3rd Gen folks are a danger to original UK ppl especially to British heritage bcz of values which are completely different
    3. The underlying such new generation immigrants are very much radical in nature and is a grave threat to fundamental Britishers who are far more tolerant types.
    What catches the attention of most commoners like myself is the constant categorization of J&K issues and a neighboring country sponsored activities as very different and always trying to portray one vision of being pro sympathetic to the most unstable country of the region.
