  Tit For Tat?

Via Rediff:

Congress president Sonia Gandhi has expressed 'outrage' over the publication of cartoons of Prophet Mohammed in European newspapers.

'The Congress party has the highest regard and respect for all faiths and is committed to protecting their rights and beliefs for preserving and strengthening the secular nature of our society,' she said in a letter to Syed Ahmed Bukhari, the Shahi Imam of Delhi's Jama Masjid.

'I have received your letter and share your sense of outrage about the publication of insensitive cartoons of the Prophet. The United Progressive Alliance government has conveyed its strong setiments to the government of Denmark through the Indian and Danish ambassadors in our respective countries,' the letter said.

Via The Chandigarh Tribune, back in 2002:

After having told India that it should not view its bilateral relationship with the European Union through the prism of Pakistan, the European Union turned around and did exactly the opposite when the Danish Prime Minister and the Chairman of the European Council, Mr Anders Fogh Rasmussen, who is also part of the EU Trioka brought up the Pakistan issue during the Indo-EU political dialogue and also made remarks critical of India's missile tests.

Foreign Minister Yashwant Sinha told reporters that it was unfortunate "while they condemned terrorism in private and yet the President of the European Council harped on the Kashmir issue". The Indian delegation felt that clearly the EU leader must have been influenced by Pakistan.
