    There are two types of Muslims: The Extremists and the Moderates. Technically there is no difference between them. The Extremists will cut your throat for not believing in pedophile M0h@m@d, and the Moderates would like Extremists cut your throat for not agreeing with them. Islam is a deadly disease, its followers should find a different religion or become atheist.

          Indian army must not show any leniency towards islamic jihadi terrorists. Shoot at sight is the only solution.

            Not sure why didn't they ask the Army to protect the Airbase instead of the NSG? I mean don't the Armies around the world protect airbases? Every airbase is vulnerable... this was a debacle, people died for nothing.
