Here in the BJP's Foreign Affairs Department Communique to Indians in the diaspora, it beats its chest in its triumph over . The communication blockade, the mass arrests, the torture, the hardships faced by children - they call it "a lot of hue and cry". So much love.

Anyone have ideas why the SA govt 'condemned' a 'terrorist' attack on Indian soldiers earlier this year , but only 'expressed concern' for the current oppressive lockdown in Kashmir? Forsaking support for liberation in favour of trade policy?
