Sir, — Besides Jammu and Kashmir, Mumbai has become the single most targeted region. The reasons are not difficult to fathom — it is a commercial hub, has crowded landmarks, and is prone to communal tension. Efficient intelligence and law enforcement are called for. Pakistan's routine condemnation is a deceptive ploy to mislead international public opinion.

Sir, — I was shocked on reading the editorial. Do you think terrorism needs a provocation? What was the provocation this time — the Indian junior hockey team winning against Pakistan?
