    Cannot believe that you stoop so low to twist A R Rahman;s words. He said, No violence IN THE NAME OF RELIGION. You have twisted it to No violence AGAINST RELIGION. The meaning are two worlds apart. You owe an apology to Mr A R Rahman and your readers. In his words, religion is not the victim, in your words religion is the victim. Please do not put words in other people's mouth.
