    Its time for Indians to take action. Stop buying things made in an Islamic country and stop buying anything from a Muslim owned store/business.

      Close the borders ( triple layer). Need tight border control thusgt; Stop drug and criminal activity. This will curtail easy entry into Punjab. Ajit should do what he wants to..world sympathy is with India. {No matter what is said openly ..The fact tis that the world ( and even numerous stanis)is with India}.
