Aug-02-05  pantlko: <alexandrovm> <Grunfeld> is correct that Kashmir is an important issue between India and pakistan.....

However, some parties both in India (BJP) and Pakistan relate the issue of religion for their political gain....

this bitterness between the religion is all because of these oppertunistic people/ party that want to use people by diving them in the name of religion

i really hate them

Aug-02-05  arifattar: Kashmir is a political issue more than anything else. There are attempts to make it a religious issue, but it's impossible. Simply because there are more Muslims in India than in Pakistan. Of course the issue is not very simple. I interact with a lot of Pakistani students here and do not shy away from discussing Kashmir with them. And almost invariably the discussion turns to the 1947 partition. One would think having heard and felt both sides of the arguments so closely, I would be much more informed. Far from it. It is still very confusing.
Aug-02-05  pantlko: i have even shared room in hostel for one year and there was no bitterness between us.as i was elder to him.he gave respect to me as elder brother...

there is no enimity between indians and pakistanis...(may be during hockey and cricket matches)

its all politics......our politicians (hate to use word leaders for them) use the enimity for their political gains

Aug-02-05  alexandrovm: thank a lot for all the shared information guys.
Aug-02-05  sitzkrieg: around a year ago two dutch muslims went to Kashmir to fight for its "liberation"..They got shot by Indian police. Good thing; last thing they need is trouble makers from abroad..
Aug-02-05  ughaibu: I guess it was more than a year ago when a bunch of US and British soldiers went to Iraq to fight for it's liberation, the last thing Iraq needed was trouble-makers from abroad, however their police force was understaffed.
Aug-02-05  alexandrovm: Trouble makers from abroad, now that's a name :)
Aug-03-05  Pretzel Logic: this is a real fun page
Aug-03-05  Anatooly Homedepotov: Hang on, I've placed a call to Deepak Chopra. He's Indian. He'll get everybody straightened out here. According to him, human life is basically an "inner divinity rediscovery game." We're all divine beings pretending we're not. Organized religion with all its dogma was designed to distract people from this truth.
Aug-03-05  sitzkrieg: I agree Pretzel logic lol..
Ughaibu is quite funny in a twisted kind of way
Aug-03-05  OneBadDog: Deepak Chopra goes to topless bars and says "now THAT'S a timeless body!" LOL
Aug-04-05  pantlko: LOL............
Aug-17-05  acirce: <The documents, including witness statements, also suggest Mr de Menezes did not hurdle the barrier at Stockwell tube station, as first reports previously suggested, and was not wearing a padded jacket that could have concealed a bomb.

...

The latest documents suggest Mr de Menezes had walked into Stockwell Tube station, picked up a free newspaper, walked through ticket barriers, had started to run when he saw a train arriving and was sitting down in a train when he was shot.

In the immediate aftermath of the incident, police said Mr de Menezes had been acting suspiciously and suggested he had vaulted the ticket barriers.

Police also said the Brazilian electrician had worn a large winter-style coat - but the leaked version suggested he had in fact worn a denim jacket.>

Aug-17-05  pantlko: thats a new twist in the story!!!!!!!!
Aug-17-05  TheSlid: It would appear there may have been a case of "mistaken identity". <acirce>'s link has a clear picture of the deceased, together with the latest er developments.

Here is a link featuring a picture of the man he was allegedly confused with. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/41582...

I'm not sure the police were the source of these claims. More likely they were eye-witness accounts picked up by the media and rapidly assumed the nature of facts.

Aug-17-05  ughaibu: In either case the supposed justifications for killing him look even shakier now.
Aug-17-05  alexandrovm: So the story still goes on over Menezes. Tragic way to be killed like that.
Dec-12-05  Akavall: http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20051212...

This I think is close to London.

That looks like A LOT of smoke! Would that be really dark, like at night there? I hope that everybody from London or near by (I assume we have someone here) is alright.

  cu8sfan: The cloud could even be seen from space! http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/shared/spl/...
Dec-12-05  WMD: Must have been what Dresden looked like c. Feb 1945.
Dec-12-05  Akavall: <cu8sfan> Yes, that was the original picture in my article, I am surprised that changed it. That cloud looks huge!
Feb-02-07  sfm: Great to see the solid progress of City of London.
A terrible start, beaten 2-0 by Paris in rapid succession. Then after a short pause came the 10-move defeat by Athens. Probably the trainer said: "No more official games before enough time has been devoted to studying!" And voila - on first encounter after the training they draw with mighty Moscow. They clearly move towards the stars (which should be reached around year 2250)
Mar-13-07  acirce: Don't worry, Big Brother is watching you.
