4 Singh’s regret means nothing for the nation&id=nc

Manmohan Singh's regret means nothing for the nationPrime Minister Manmohan Singh has issued a statement following the death of Sarabjit Singh, the Indian prisoner who died in a Lahore hospital after inmates attacked him brutally, sending him into a deep coma and then causing his untimely death.

Sarabjit is no more: Has the Government failed in its duties?

Manmohan Singh has said that he is “deeply saddened” by Sarabjit’s death and that he was “a brave son of India”. He has also put the blame for the tragedy squarely on the Pakistan Government’s and wished that his “soul soul be granted the peace that he could not enjoy in life”.

The question of course is whether platitudes like this will serve any purpose now that Sarabjit is no more. Can Manmohan wash his hands off the guilt?

Below is the full text of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s statement

I am deeply saddened by the passing away of Sarabjit Singh.

He was a brave son of India who bore his tribulations with valiant fortitude. The criminals responsible for the barbaric and murderous attack on him must be brought to justice.

It is particularly regrettable that the government of Pakistan did not heed the pleas of the government of India, Sarabjit’s family and of civil society in India and Pakistan to take a humanitarian view of this case.

May his soul be granted the peace that he could not enjoy in life.

Government will make the arrangements to bring his remains home and for his last rites to be conducted in consultation with his family. The nation shares their profound grief with them.

    Manmohan is a vicious joker. This man could not sleep when Australia locked up a suspected Muslim for his involvement in some sort of terror activity. Who the hell wants this shameless man’s regrets and asinine comment? He is vicarious and cruel and has never slammed Pakistan for its criminalities.
    He is like a clown and is now unable to stop even his own Yasin Malick from
    the open support to Pakistan terrorists.

    My Dear Hon’ble Prime Minister!

    You are really tired to handle the country. You have no rights to play with the life of the people. You cannot have strength to take care of yourself then how you will take care of our Loveable Indians.

    I request you to come down from the Primeminister SEAT. Now your party will kill each and every citizen by increasing price and other side giving lands to our loveable people like China and Pakistan.

    They are better than you. you are unfit to be handle this seat.

    Please do the needful.

    Thanking you,

    Sincerely yours,
