            These stanis are but third cl Indians of yore who turned to Islam in the hope of betterment of their lives.They did not take accept wisdom from Brahmin minds. They had thought Arabs were better! NA MILA kHUDA, NA HUA VI SANAM!lt;br/gt;Here are they at harvesting ill crops of their ill sowings- proving over and over again 'once a pariah always a pariah'. Islam only worsened their fate. They are caught in a trap, and there is no way out but one: renounce Islam; return where you belong; and, having returned, use your freedom to shape your life as you will. Indian Republic is a fairly good level ground to play for citizen rights- all same this religion or that; all same this social status or that. Dalits become Repubic's Presidents! Muslims enjoy same rights as non Muslims. What more will one want? Islam blinds these fellows with ignorance and they will play equals of Veds and Upanishads! What ignoramuses! India should next aim for destructing stan altogether in order to reunite the nation as pre 1947.

                      porkistan will never ever confirm about surgical strike. If they confirm, its a direct confirmation to world that terrorists were present on their land. Obviously, they will continue to deny and i guess, even if india releases proof, they would go to the extent of telling its fake. By the way of their blood, did they ever confirmed state actors responsible for pathankot were from stan? They dis-owned Kasab! So, no surprise, its expected
