    this happens every day in the outskirts of bengal...but no media reports. neither does the mamta govt pay any heed...specially after she made it a point to read the kalima every 7 days and offer namaz every friday! hindu girls are systematically abducted, gang-raped, converted to islam and finally sold off to brothels

    Hang them all to send a strong message to the other at large if it is proved and on fast track and hope no JNTU/Mulayams would rise their voice as freedom of action/speech. Jaihind
