    Nice photo of your innocent terrorist who kill women and children. IE probably use to sucking terrorist. Usually a few kicks are good to tell whether the terrorist i dead or not. It is also a emotional issues. This is not mutilation, and these terrorist may be honored in Pakistan as gods, but not here except for IE and other Pakistani papers. .

      They have done nothing wrong. Don't take any stupid action on them. Militants take heads, so this is nothing wrong.

        Oh...no, no...they should be being covered with porkistani national flag, and 21 gun slaute must be given, plus national holiday declared, with flags flying at half-mast...considering their 'service' in India would this be sufficient to make the 'human rights' brigade happy?
