    If the three generations of Andullah family were serious believers in secularism and plurality we would not be facing these radicalized and terrorist infected times . They turned blind eyes when the Kashmiri youth was being radicalized with the Middle East money ,sweet talked to the aristocratic politicians in CENTER and shook hands with theocratic elements when they turned their back .The law protecting and instigating the separatism has to be scraped even if it is against the financial interests of some political families

    What can one expect from Muslims? And why is everyone pretending to be surprised? Where ever the peaceful community becomes more than 25 these communal clashes will be a routine event. less than 15 they live on handouts. More than 45 they want sharia and Islamic state.

    When any om attack on any mussi, Omar goes on to say that its against muslims community. Now he condemned that it's a dastardly act.. But will he now, when 7 innocent hindus (5 women among them) died n 12 r critical, say that it is against Hindus community.. Hypocrite..!!
