            The picture with a helpless looking Muslim man with two young children is a Goebellian master-stroke. Blamed the Hindus as aggressors and at the same time keeping the option of denial intact

                All faults likes with name "Muzaffarnagar" When Madras, Bangalore, Trivendram names were changed why not "Muzaffarnar". Its name should be changed at the earliest. Why there should be three districts in India in the name of "Aurangabad". Was Aurangjeb was so por in India and well behaved Ruler? These three districts should also be changed not only by their names but also by their culture. Who was this Osman who was glorified by naming "Osamanabad"? Why Congressi have continued these names for last 67 years. Are they still willing to make more parions of India by creating Mini stan everywhere in India on the lines of middle east countries?

                            Once again the communal SP govt booked wrong people. If they keep pushing Hindus against the wall a day will come when they won't take it any more and the consequences would be bad for sikulers and their supporters.
