            This newspaper is failing to report the crime of the youth arrested. Why ociation with IRF is a crime. Has any court given a judgement against Naik or IRF? Has there been any criminal case registered against Dr Naik or IRF or Peace TV? None! And none can be registered as law demands a basic violation of law to register a case against anyone, and any evidence to support that the crime has been committed. It is only hate and propaa of the Sangh Parivar and venomous TV channels that are spreading hatred against a most rational preacher. If anyone has guts, why don't you debate with him, and prove him wrong through evidences and not concocted clippings.
