Mumbai attacks: What happened to Pakistan's response?

The Indian media seems to have gone to sleep on the issue of Mumbai attacks. They have got more entertaining characters like Pramod Muthalik whom they are focusing and trying to direct the fury of the youth. IPL also seems to be captivating.

I think it has been clearly established that terrorists from Pakistan were behind the attacks and the Pakistan government had agreed to take action. But what action is being taken? What kind of pressure is the Indian government putting on Pakistan to take action? I don't know and seems like the media doesn't care. If you don't believe me check out the news sites.

How easily do we let things go?

Every year we see:
  1. Terror attacks.
  2. People dying in the east due to floods.
  3. Farmers committing suicide in Andhra Pradesh due to draught.
  4. Blue line buses killing pedestrians and cyclists.
  5. Rich brats driving drunk and killing people.
  6. Train accidents killing people.
When it's so easy to predict, why do we see it every single year?

As far as the hindu extremist groups are concerned, I think they should be banned. Nothing more, nothing less.

I have seen at many places where people argue that the people in these groups are cowards and they aren't fighting terrorists, who are the real danger. But think about it, do you really want them to fight terrorists? Do you really want non-state actors to be striking across the border? Aren't you just engendering a new terror outfit, just this time it will be in the name of Ram?
