          These people dared to do such things as they know that they have backing of the ru Biggest Jumla Party which want to create riot so that public attention can be diverted from looting of bank finance by the big business houses in the name of settlement of NPA created willfully, crony capitalism and other failors.

                  It is is an eye opener for all sane Indians who are an absolute minority in the country, no matter what religion. Within 5 yrs violence will blanket the country and Modi won't know what hit him. He has been mum on these incidents, he has been mum on lynchings, he has been MUM on everything that should not happen. 5 yrs I said.

Mr Antony. Just want to recall u that RSS activists are getting killed in Kerala by the leftists goons. That does not mean every Keralite who supports left is a literate leftist goon.
