Pragmatic | Syed Geelani’s mehandi problem

India survives only because it is blessed with enemies of this calibre

As reported here:

[Syed Ali Shah] Geelani called for keeping an eye on the non local workers during their stay and work in Kashmir. Citing an example, he said “a trend has started in Kashmir in which Mehandi artists from outside are allowed to create designs on the hands and arms of our daughters on the marriage ceremonies. What has happened to our dignity? It is high time that we introspect and see where we are heading.”[Link]

Thank you, Mr. Geelani. With enemies like you, India can do without friends.
