Dear Indian Media

In particular CNN-IBN please get a life!

Soon after three serial bomb blasts struck Mumbai, a story started floating that July 13 is the birthday of Ajmal Kasab, the terrorist convicted for the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks and hinted at the choice of date for the latest terror attack on India’s financial capital.

Some other reports contradicted, pointing out that Ajmal Kasab was born on September 13, 1987. The confusion over Kasab’s date of birth is also reflected in the multiple edits on the Wikipedia page on him. On July 13 alone, the Ajmal Kasab page on Wikipedia underwent at least 25 edits and now his date of birth there reflects both the dates.
