The sources also clarified that contrary to media reports in India and Pakistan, the demarche which was handed over to the Pakistani side earlier this week did not contain the list of 20 most wanted terrorists that had first been given to Islamabad in 2000. Once the media started saying India was demanding the immediate handing over of the 20 fugitives, of course, the Government could hardly contradict these reports since their return has been a long-standing Indian demand, the sources added. The demarche made only a pro forma reference to the return of unnamed fugitives but was otherwise exclusively focused on the Lashkar-e-Taiba and its leader Hafiz Saeed, whom New Delhi regards as the perpetrators of the Mumbai terror strikes.Worse, the government is covering up for the media because they mention something they want? Hello boss! At this moment, what we want most is a less volatile situation. Really folks. GROW UP!!! We are trying to catch some terrorists here and avoid a war. Those 20 men have been a major hostile point which was introduced between two countries because some journalist as usual didn’t bother to verify what they were writing. So of course, as a country, we pressurized another country and created anger and misunderstanding over something we hadn’t even planned to ask for just yet. Disillusioned doesn’t begin to cover what I feel. I’m not even certain what’s true and what’s a journalists’ version of how things could be in all the news on the terror attack investigations.
