      In BJP and RSS there may be people obsessed in Indianess. There may be hardcore Indian in BJP and RSS but there cannot be a ISIS agent in BJP and RSS. I love my country. Those who talk against the country are anti nationals in my view. Keep them in proper place so that India become one. Some minority elements wants to rule India. Opportunity is given equal to all then how can minority spoksperson say Muslim boys become terrorist because lack of opportunity. Do not challange RSS, VHP and BJP. They are the true nationals. All others are mixed blood who a paltry gain swing to any side. I love PM Narendra Modi. No corruption, no riminal activities. Good going.

          You must make statement about encounter with dreaded suspect who possessed the weapons of m destruction like saddam Hussain in Iraq did. But don't forget to mention the name of ISI agents of BJP.

            Making a statement is no more important in this modern world of instant communication to all. What is important to come out with long term solution , debate and actions to curb this menace; because India is getting encircled on this aspect of terror . How much resources are being wasted in tracking, investigating , arresting or neutralizing , bomb diffusing , prosecuting , jailing etc. It is humongous amount of money , time and effort. And , if not neutralized beforehand, loss of innocent citizens lives and maiming of innocent citizens for lifelong suffering of the person and family. All this is happening because of violent , cruel theology of a faith.And the desired result is not guaranteed. De-radicalization measures have proved counterproductive. Will it not be much cheaper and less resources requirement to spread Buddhism which is also a proselytizing faith, but its theology is very very peaceful and it believes in social peace and harmony besides being an indigenous faith? Will this and this alone be a long term solution for India ?
