I like Barbara Crossette, and at any other time, this would be a well-intentioned but unbalanced article. However, at a time like this, an article of this nature is simply unconscionable and irresponsibly mischievous. I can only assume that you're sophisticated enough to understand that the tone and timing of this article suggests a "blame the victim" mentality and appeasement as the best response to terrorism. India's Muslims are equal victims of this tragedy and not the likely perpetrators. One gets the impression from the opening sentence that the author wasn't going to let the inconvenient facts get in the way of pouring oil on a fire.
