The Indian media has been much more aggressive than Pakistan in covering LeT, which is perhaps unsurprising given that India is LeT’s primary target. From broadcast media to op-eds in major Indian newspapers, the Indian government has pushed for more action against Pakistani militant groups like LeT. India has criticized the international community and Pakistan for failing to take LeT seriously and curb the group’s militant activities.
Since the April 2015 release of one of LeT’s top leaders, Zaki-ur-Rahman Lakhvi, both Western and Indian media have anticipated increased tension in Pakistan-India relations.
In Their Own Words:
Many people do [believe] that it is a terrorist state, and who would possibly be a friend of Israel after you see the carnage that they carried out against Muslims in the West Bank and Gaza Strip and continue to do with the appropriation of properties? No one in their right and rational mind would support such a state [Israel].
