      Muslims are ungrateful. Otherwise, they wouldnt have indulge in terrorist activities of all place but in germany. This is the only country who has adopted ten lakhs muslim refugee without any passport or papers. I feel like spitting on the face of all muslims as theyre not fit to be called as a human being.

        ISIS Terrorist are also growing now in India, may be due to Dirty Nehru-Ambedkar Laws Like No Common Civil Code?? After Gifting Best Lands of Pak Bangla to Muslims as per their demands rest India Lands are mainly for Hindu 0.7 Buddha. But Pseudo Secular hi-Nehru Allowed Muslims to stay here? That has created all such serious problems for Hindus even in India Today!! in 1947 Hindu Population in Pak was 27 Bangladesh was 30 . Now not even 5 Hindu remained there. Better Change Dirty Laws Done by pseudo secular Nehru-Ambedkar like No Common civil code? Else till then cancel Hindu 1-wife Act Law done by Buddha Ambedkar. Revert Mr.Ambedkar Laws. Allow 2-shadi written Talak for Hindu. And force China 1-child Law to Muslim brothers for next 70 years. That shall help Muslims to prosper like China! Stop Education in Madrassah, teach muslims with Hindu in common. Teach Muslim Girls Tennis from Sania Mirza!! Gift Reservation for Muslim Women in BC Quota instead of Ambedkar caste.

          Surely it is the work of brainless ( because his brain is completely washed away) Islamist. Angela Merkel should answer why she has exposed peace loving Germans to daily threat of life.

                Punish the culprit without mercy. There is no second thought. Also what i'm thinking is, if the culprit is muslim, the w media will blame Islam and Quran for this act. If the culprit is non-muslim, the media will blame only that particular person with some reason.

                    Muslims kill for no personal reason. They kill only for Islam.

                      Every terrorist activity in the recent past is perpetrated by someone from one community. I many times wonder whether the mullahs who control their community with dictates of what to do and what not to do, cannot control the own people committing acts of terrorism ?? The trend is very dangerous as the people from the community who are against violence will be at the receiving end as they will be looked at with su ion.

                        Count the number of police personnel killed by so called Muslim terrorists in India in last 1 year, 5 year, 10 years vs. those killed by Hindu Maoists!! Count the number of the general human beings killed by Muslims in last 10 year, 50 year, 100 years, 1000 years vs. those killed by Christians.
