    It’s really a tragedy that journalists like Daniel Pearl, are being lost to religious fanatics who have no regard for human life. He was there reporting the facts on ground and in some sense sympathetic to suffering of the people due years of military rule in Pakistan.

    What happened to that guy is really bad but the whole thing is just propaganda ploy by the embassy. I just don’t get what’s behind Madras Film Society and Indo-Cine Appreciation Foundation on this?
