  • Sarabjit Singh's extra-judicial killing is yet another grim reminder that expecting Pakistan to follow due process of law in any sphere is futile.
  • The Centre is unable to give a strong answer to Pakistan's inhuman acts. The beheading of our soldiers and now Sarabjit's death are two recent examples.
  • Both the Government of India & Government of Pakistan have misled the people on the Sarabjit Singh issue. The truth must come out.
  • Sarabjit Singh's demise is very sad. May his soul rest in peace. May God give strength to his family to bear this loss.
  • (On Chinese incursion in Ladakh) China is making tents, making roads and the government does not know how to deal with the situation.
  • Can we trust this government?
