    :lol: This is anti UK ? Articles bashing India appear daily in British media.

    And more often Op-Eds which string together unrelated, isolated incidents to create a narrative- such as 'Is India descending to mob rule ?'

    Lol, so now this ? Here is from ToI report.

    Seven Amarnath pilgrims from Gujarat were killed and 14 others injured when terrorists opened fire on a bus near Batengoo in Jammu and Kashmir's Anantnag district on Monday.

    Police sources said the terrorists initially attacked a police bunker in Batengoo. The fire was returned but there was no report of injuries. It was after that the bus was attacked. The bus was on way to Jammu from Baltal and was not part of a convoy, a police spokesman said.

    From 'Republic'...

    How do you know ? There are literally thousands of pilgrims who travel there by bus.

    And they just happened to attack a police bunker and checkpoint on the way? I think what happened is they went there to attack police, as your police said, but they saw some civilians and being terrorists, they opened fire on them too. And as usual, you picked up on one word to get butthurt over.

    So the primary target was in fact the police and the bus was a secondary target. That's not so different from what the BBC report suggests.

    That you've written 9 pages on this shows you have a problem.

    What does being primary & secondary have to do with this ?

    The terrorists (I hope I don't offend you by using that term) fired at a police post and after that they fired at a civilian bus full of pilgrims, that too two times- which proves their intent.

    It's definitely not a case of a bunch of 'righteous militants revolting against a hindu India' attacking the 'oppressive police' & a bunch of people dying unintentionally, as BBC portrays it.

    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. (which isn't the truth-trying to whitewash the terrorists ?)

    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. ( why insert this, totally irrelevant sentence here ?)

    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. (again, trying to justify terrorism?)

    My reason for blaming BBC here was not to badger @BMD but to drive home an important point: While their media (BBC et at) indulge in slandering India and cover for Islamic terrorism, this is worst they could do. But they have to live with these Islam apologists elites and they want @BMD et al to become minority so that it would become easier for them to control their peasants.

    BBC et al making excuse for Islamic terrorism overseas is much more dangerous for Britishers themselves, than direct victims of Islamic terrorism. For @BMD 's sake, I hope that he does not have daughters or grand-daughters.

    Amarnath attack: Lashkar-e-Taiba over-ground workers tailed pilgrims for 2 days

    The OGWs had been tailing this group from Gujarat comprising mostly women for the last two days and tipped off the terrorists to attack the group when there was no security around," top government sources told Mail Today

    The bus had separated from the security convoy at around 8.30am and was under watch of terrorists till it was attacked at 8.20pm, the security forces informed the Centre.
    The sources said the main targets of terrorists were women and there were inputs that pilgrims from Gujarat and Uttar Pradesh would be on their radar.

    Sources told Mail Today that the batch of terrorists who attacked the bus from both sides have been identified. Officials confirm that they have not slipped out of the country and it is only a matter of time before they are trapped or killed.
    According to an official, what is more worrying is that Ismail apart from activating his over-ground operatives also got in touch with some locals of the Hizbul Mujahideen. The cadres of the Hizbul had helped in logistics, which were shared with Lashkar. The local Hizbul operatives are more familiar with the territory.

    The probe also shows that the Lashkar wanted to take some of the pilgrims hostage. A reconnaissance of the route was conducted for three days. The plan was to barge into the bus, kill as many as possible and also take a few captive, investigations so far have revealed.
