Seek closure in Kasab’s death as Pak will not act on 26/11
In her article An inconvenient truth (The Otherside, November 26), Ayesha Siddiqa rightly states that the judiciary in Pakistan doesn’t believe in reviewing itself. That’s why there hasn’t been any forward movement in the 26/11 case from Pakistan’s side despite the fact that India has provided it with enough information on the attacks. Politicians in Pakistan do not have the courage to act against the masterminds of the Mumbai attacks. And with the Pakistani judiciary refusing to take note of India’s concerns, it’s clear that the perpetrators of 26/11 won’t have to worry about punishment. Therefore, sadly, some closure to the attacks will have to be sought in Ajmal Kasab’s hanging.

Don’t ignore the trouble within
I agree with the editorial Still not fully safe and secure (Our Take, November 26) that we feel unsafe even four years after the 26/11 Mumbai attack thanks to the many chinks in India’s security armour. I believe that we are not paying enough attention to threats arising from within India. While we are busy guarding our borders with Pakistan, the authorities concerned don’t seem to be doing anything to nab the assistants and informers of Pakistan-based terrorists.

All's not lost for Dhoni and Co
Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s second Test defeat at home is a bleak reminder of the fact that Team India is no more a world-class Test Team (Home pitch, tame show, November 27). The famed batting line-up and spinners were a letdown. It is high time that Dhoni and his boys realised that they can no longer cash in on the home advantage. However, all’s not lost for the team as it can still bounce back to form.
