    this region could be stronger than Europe if both countries could be more realistic than emotional. Kashmir should be further divided between both countries and continue with other business. India should show bigger heart in this regard.

      To be Hindu and then be a Hindu nationalist, is far better than being a Hindu without nationalism. So is for Muslims too. Let the media cry wolf all the time, did not you see that now they just sell due to their breaking news and bribes from the corporate houses. As far as International media is concerned, they would never like the two neighbours to come together, they will try their utmost to sabotage it. Congress too has done this.

            You should be glad that NaMo is given le of Nationalist. In today's stan, majority of leaders are Fundamentalist, Fanatics or Talibanist. Sharif will fall in any category depending on the situation.
