Newspaper's lopsided views on Pakistan and Sena

Two days ahead of the ICC World Cup, a senior Shiv Sena leader has put a question mark on any final match which involves Pakistan.

“You all know Sena chief Bal Thackeray’s views. If the Pakistan team reaches the final (scheduled in Mumbai), whether to allow them to play, the Sena chief will decide,” Manohar Joshi said here today.

IMO: The newspapers are calling Mr. Thackeray's comments a "threat" or a "veiled threat" .  This sounds quite wrong. 'Mr. Thackeray is quite reasonably considering the security of Mumbai', would have been more accurate. A pity the Goan blog "PenPricks" seems to have been closed. It had good ways of dealing with inaccurate or biassed Press comments.
