Atomic bombs

In late 1992, leading up to and during the worst violence and killing Bombay has ever seen, a city publication carried several editorials. Here are two excerpts from two of them.

"Which is this minority community? The Muslim traitors who partitioned the country and haven't allowed us to breathe ever since."
Bal Thackeray, Saamna editorial, December 5, 1992.

"Pakistan need not cross the borders and attack India. 250 million Muslims in India will stage an armed insurrection. They form one of Pakistan's seven atomic bombs."
Bal Thackeray, Saamna editorial, December 9, 1992.

Nearly seventeen years later, there's this news.
