Re: Jamia University to defend students held on terror charges
You may be a nonentity but all of us have to condemn killings, whoever is responsible for them and to whichever ethnic group, caste or religion the dead persons belong to. We have also to plead for a just trial to the accused and demand that all witch hunting be avoided. With best wishes]
Events have to interpreted within a historical perspective. We cannot transfer the thinking of today to the 16th century. The thinking has changed so much and it is a totally ahistorical approach to compare Babar with Advani. It does not mean that either Babar or Advani can be defended but events have to be interpreted within the thinking of those times.
