    Inch by inch India's territories in am, Tripura, taken over the illegal settlers from Bangladesh. Illegal settlers are being repeatedly sponsored by Maulana Badruddin Ajmal Al-Qasmi of AISUDF to change the religious demography in the states am, Bihar, Tripura and the major cities in establish political domination as the first step for the final solution i.e.to Islamize the entire country. Leading BJP-NDA personalities, due to Muslims' family connection by marriage of their siblings , justify the inter-marriage claiming Muslims have Hindu DNA. These leaders are traitors laying the firm foundation for the creation of theocratic Muslim state. Within 100 years Democratic Republic of India could be defunct and Hindu potion of India would have dominant Muslim's genetic material in their DNA, a sure sign for the emergence of radicalized authoritarian turncoats to Balkanise the country to unleash terror and mayhem and Hindus as a genus will become an extinct group.
