          What a shame. Yeh log mentally disturbed hain. Chee :( And people who are justifying this on the comments section: Itna gussa kyun ? Kya hua hain tumhaare saath joh itna gussa aa raha hain ? Agar desh ko aage badhaana hain toh kya uske liye doosra ko neecha dikhaana hoga kya ? Agar sach mein hindu ho toh sharam se ro padna chahiye tumhe.

              once upon a time a group of thugs (robbers saw a Brahmin carrying a baby goat on his shoulders in a quite lane of a remote village. The thugs hatched a plan to get hold of the goat. They dis d and tactfully met the Brahmin individually at different stages. The first thug innocently inquired the Brahmin why he was carrying a dog on his shoulders to which the Brahmin angrily denied and explained that it was a goat not a dog. But the thugs as per their plan met him indivdually at different locations and tried to convince him the same point that he was carrying a dog not a goat. Now due to so many people saying the same thing this Brahmin got convinced that he was carrying a filthy animal instead of a goat and got rid of it to the benefit of the thugs. So the scheme worked. Today is the age of media and the media kingpins / media tycoons / media gurus have a golden rule "Even the most absurd Lie can be made to look like the Truth if it is bombarded 24/7" and we are witness to it.

                BJP Govt cannot be blamed for this . This is the fault of Jawaharlal Nehru , corrupt KHANgress party , sickular media,burkha and sagarika ,leftist-liberals , JNU anti-nationals and award wapsi gang. Besides , we do not know the character of this woman . She could be a anti-national Maoist pretending to be disabled. She should have chanted -"Jai Shri Ram" , when politely asked to do so .

                  Violence against women and minorities is the new norm in Rajasthan, because the state has a sleeping Chief Minister and lying Home Minister. In another incident reported today a Muslim man was beaten to death by Muni l employees of Pratapgarh because he objected to their taking photographs of women defecating in the open. Is this how Modi implements swach bharath ? BJP/RSS is giving free play of the pent up instincts of violence and lawlessness initially let loose by allowing cow vigilantism. They cannot control youth who have been given dreams of employment, which have turned into so much of hot air from Modi's election speeches.

                    To Proud Bhakt : Why should one say what the culprits wants her to say? What right this goondas got to beat that helpless poor lady? Who are they to decide what she should say? Is India their father's property? These are F ing goons and courts should punish them with harshest sentences.
