Hi Chintan, Yash,


     I share my views with Mr. Yogesh Badwe that it's not an issue of what
the Indian,Pakistani....or African media is saying and against whom. The
matter is if there is smoke...there 'might be' fire somewhere. And if not,
we as security professionals should remain updated of any fake/true news.
Any 'hoax bomb call' is also a matter of great concern.

This community is for sharing any fake/unfake news and we should not simply
put is as media overhype. I got the news and put here..just simple. At least
we can be careful and this kind of thing might occur in the current scenario
of Indo-Pak, at least they can intesify at the time being. This is not out
of the world thing.

Anyways, thanks to all learned people for an enlightening discussion.
