    No Mr Feku, a day or a month of celebration by the dilusional fools of an extemely inward-looking, hate promoting cult will not promote peace. Your message is as hypocritical as you slogan of 'sabka vikas'. Your hate for muslim citizens of India is reducing the country's democracy to a brahmin theocracy of lowest kind.

          When winter says Spring is in my heart, who will believe winter? Given the school they belong to Modi, Rajnath and their brigand of saffronites can never be believed. They have been dividing the people on communal lines, unashamedly. Because of their b of politics, India has been witnessing vertical split in its electorate on caste and communal lines. With poison in their minds they can't be trusted on face value. Cow vigilantes have been sniffing from outside the homesteads of Muslim brethren and lynching them in the name of beef. Our Dalit brothers and sisters pursuing studies for making progress in life are repeatedly harassed in ins utions of higher learning like JNU, Hyderabad University etc etc. Our Christian brothers are accused of conversion through temptations to the indigent. All this is happening under the patronage of the divisive policies of these religious bigots. Food for thought: Can we entrust the future of this nation to this minuscule number of Fanatics?

            While I appreciate Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modiji for the Eid-ul-Fitr greetings to the nation. I hope he will not bring from US and Israel, a bundle of conspiracies and designs to hurt Muslim population in India.

                While he and all the BJP clan including the BJP government ministers quietly abstain from attending the president's iftar party. A hypocrite and a Muslim hater.

                  And Prime minister sir! What is your lynching target for your so called fringe elements before next year's Idd-ul-Fitre message? You don't have to greet the Muslims, just condemned the lynching of poor Muslim men by your supporters, that will be your biggest gift for them.
