<!--QuoteBegin-->QUOTE<!--QuoteEBegin-->UNEQUAL ACCOMMODATION: A National Stockholm Syndrome?

by B.Raman

.....

12.The term Stockholm Syndrome describes the behavior of kidnap victims who, over time, become sympathetic to their captors. The name derives from a 1973 hostage incident in Stockholm. At the end of six days of captivity in a bank, several kidnap victims actually resisted rescue attempts, and afterwards refused to testify against their captors. This is also now used  to describe victims of terrorism who start sympathising with the terrorists and  pleading for them and praising them.

13. Have the Indian political leadership and policy-makers  been infected with a national  Stockholm Syndrome  as a result of nearly 25 years of  relentless acts of terrorism sponsored by  Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI), which have killed thousands of innocent civilians all over the country  and continue to kill many more? Has terrorism fatigue induced us to start viewing the sponsor of terrorism, responsible for so many deaths, as our objective ally in the march on the road to peace and progress?

14. These are disturbing questions gnawing at  one's mind as one read the joint statement and as one heard over the TV the kind of glowing expressions which our Prime Minister is reported to have used while describing Musharraf during a briefing for our senior Editors after the departure of Musharraf.

15. God forbid, but these words may  come to haunt us one day. <!--QuoteEnd--><!--QuoteEEnd-->
