Mid-Day Mumbai and Indian media's pseudo-secularism

I am thoroughly pissed after reading Mid Day Mumbai's account of the massacre of 22 Hindus The article does not even mention the word Hindus. It's the same case with the Hindu.
Taking a look at the list of sites on google news carrying this story, Indian papers are conspicuously avoiding the mention of Hindus in the title of their articles and even in the body! Why such hypocrisy in the Indian media? Is to avoid hurting the "sentiments" of the minority community, which is a majority in Kashmir?
However, foreign media have no such qualms in telling the truth of the matter.
