      A lesson for Amir Khan, it is only in INDIA he will get the respect which he is getting and like DILIP KUMAR even he can get PADMA VIBHUSHAN. Let him tell us whether a HINDU can get such an honour in an Islamic country? For Amir Khan's memory, when stan 's Chief justice was suspended, his deputy who was a Hindu was the acting Chief Justice and there was hue and cry in stan. After the acting Chief Justice (Hindu) retired he had to immigrate to India to spend his old age. He is now living in Lucknow. India is the only country on this earth where there is tolerance for all religions and everybody is living in a relative peace.
