And i agree to the fact about indian attitude towards us. However i disagree that we do not owe anything to India. they did allow people to move to India duringt he war and provide atleast sth for them.
On another note, isn't the article asking whether India did the right thing?
some level of genuineness, eh?
why the hell would they care so much about MUSLIM EAST PAKISTANIS
, yet the same ppl come up with excuses out the wazoo when 2000 muslim GUJRATIS (INDIAN CITIZENS FOR CRYIN OUT LOUD, THEIR OWN COUNTRYMEN)
if that is what you call genuine altruisim you can take that and stick in the dust bin.
