The article "Behind the bombing of the train of love" (Feb. 20) has indulged in mischievous propaganda by suggesting that some elements in Pakistan are responsible for the heinous act. The author could have waited for some proof to emerge. Even the intelligence agencies have kept unusually quiet.

I was appalled on reading the article by Praveen Swami and Siddharth Varadarajan's "Keep the peace process on track." For a Pakistani-American and a strong supporter of better India-Pakistan relations like me, the deep-seated prejudice of the writers was disheartening.

Without a shred of evidence, they have laid the blame at the door of Pakistanis for the death of Pakistani citizens. Not once do they even suggest that this could be the work of Hindu extremists.
