    "The bodies of nine gunmen killed during attacks on the Indian city of Mumbai a year ago are still awaiting burial.

    Muslim clerics had denied permission to bury the bodies in Mumbai graveyards, saying the actions of the gunmen had "defamed" their religion.

    Pakistan flatly refused to take them despite India's argument that they should go back to the country from which they originated.

    After post-mortem examinations the bodies were taken to the hospital morgue as Indian Muslims said they would not allow the bodies to be buried in their cemeteries.

    Ibrahim Tai, president of the Muslim Council Trust, says he opposes such burials as the gunmen's actions were un-Islamic.

    "We do not want them to be buried on any of our burial grounds but they can be disposed of anywhere else in India. Good Muslims are laid to rest in our burial grounds. We do not believe that these nine men are true followers of Islam."

    This comment is not related to yours, but I would like to reiterate the point of the OP.

    There are almost as many Muslims in India, as in Pakistan, and it seems pretty clear from the bbc article, that the savages are not viewed as heros by same.

    I think we should be pleased with this response.
