Says, not any garden variety conspiracy theorist whom you may encounter on the streets of Delhi or Kolkotha, but a Cabinet Minister of India. After the sacked Home Minister, Shivraj Patil, we have the Minister for Minority Affairs, Mr. A.R. Antulay, standing up for the Islamic terrorists: "Superficially speaking they (terrorists) had no reason to kill Karkare. Whether he (Karkare) was victim of terrorism or terrorism plus something. I do not know." And, prominent leaders of the Muslim community in India concur.
Yes, Mr. Abdul Rahman Antulay, it's clear crystal that the terrorists had every reason to kill Rivkah, Vijay, Sandeep, Meera, Brett, Rakhila, Sareena, Steve, Samveer, Thomas, Monica... names, few, if any, outside of their friends and family, could have recognized, but you don't know of any reason why they'd kill Hemant Karkare.
The Islamic Republic of Pakistan and their Army of the Pure [Lashkar-e-Taiba] ought to be delighted. They are fortunate to have a trusted ally in Mr. Antulay, whose loyalty to the Republic of India could only be compared to their respect for life and liberty.
