I am writing with regards to the highly biased article by Brahma Chellaney in the March 6 edition. It is highly disappointing to see that once again the columns of The Japan Times have been used to make lopsided and misleading assertions against Pakistan. We firmly believe in the freedom of speech. However, we are of the view that this right needs to be used with prudence.

Chellaney squarely blamed Pakistan for the suicide attack on Indian security forces in the Indian-occupied Jammu and Kashmir, which is contrary to the fact as it was carried out by a local Kashmiri youth, using locally arranged explosives. Chellaney would be better served finding out why Kashmiri youth of today have become so desperate that they prefer taking their own lives. What sort of extreme humiliation is being meted out to Kashmiris that they no longer have the desire to live but to kill their oppressors?
