Interesting Reason To Arrest A Teacher

From CNN:

Police in Indian administered Kashmir Friday arrested a teacher of a local college on charges of writing an exam "with anti-India content."

"We have arrested Noor Mohammad Bhat under (the ) Unlawful Activities Act," Srinagar district police chief, Ashiq Bukhari said Friday evening.

He said the teacher who teaches English in a college here had written an exam for graduate level examinees with questions attempting "to glorify the Kashmiri stone pelters and to project separatist views."

Please understand, for all this nation's complaints about years in Afghanistan, India and Pakistan have been fighting a border war for over fifty years. There is truly bad blood here. We have Indian students who are not permitted by their parents to date, talk or be friends with Pakistani students. The wounds are deep and far from healed.
