      Time to dig out these rats from their s. Action also needs to be taken against the sympathisers of these anti national savages in politics and media. These terrorists receive a lot of support through the so called human rights activists NGOs and intellectuals who try to weaken any action against these savages directly or indirectly.

          Height of intolerance! Under "secular" CONgress, terrorists were roaming freely with full support from high command, and killing Indian citizens and soldiers. Since this intolerant BJP came to power, these terrorists have no where to hide. So unfair!! I request govt to return the awards that were returned to them, so that the award wapsi people can return it one more time.

            The bias in the media is discernible. The alleged suspects of ISIS were caught ,but any crime a Hindu does ,media is too ready to judge and p punishments.
