- But we cannot include in this paper a discussion of the awkward dishonesty evident throughout secularist reporting, denounced so often and so thoroughly by Arun Shourie and by Ramesh Rao. For now, we merely want to draw attention to what Mira Kamdar omits about L.K. Advani: that he has survived several attempts on his life. The most spectacular instance took place during an election meeting in Coimbatore in February 1998, where an Islamist bomb attack failed to kill Advani because he arrived late. It did, however, kill forty BJP activists present. Not being wealthy secularists, they were never put on alert by helpful “threats”.
