Pakistan vs. India

It's hard to generalize based on two newspapers, but the lack of any real coverage or comment in the Pakistan Daily Times on the bombings in Mumbai (Bombay) is pretty revealing. In the Times of India, the Deputy Prime Minister said:
our neighbour's war of terrorism against us is directed not only in Jammu and Kashmir as the worldwide impression has it. The analysis and experience of the past shows that the target is not only J&K, Punjab or Delhi alone. There is an attempt to destabilise the whole of India
How can there be so little interest in Pakistan with regards to this story? The Deputy PM also apparently said that it was India's success that was the cause of Pakistan's hostility towards India. Sounds very much like what George W. Bush would have said.
