In Response to J&k TOURISM & Taliban

Dear Editor,

I find it funny as well as unfounded that the ghosts of Taliban, if there are any as such, could come across the LoC to haunt kashmir tourism. Three recent conferences on media, ecology and sociology , three cultural events , an international ambassodors golf event are some of the events Srinagar hosted in the last month only. Against all these I don't understand where from a story like your's lands up to link Taliban with tourism in Kashmir.

Tourism is happening quite normally here as much as it does anywhere else, and let me make this thing clear that we feel safer here than in Delhi or Bombay.
