everybody is busy balming hindus for everything which happen because hindus donot vote enbloc.Gujrat riots happen after Godhra,kandhmal happens after broaddaylight killing of 90yr old sadhu,after babri nobody counts how many temples these Muslim destryoed.I appeal to all hindus to join togehter otherwise again mughals will come and bucter hindus or convert them or loot and rape hindus.At least now hindus donot let history repeat again,this time in place of mughals (babur,jhangesh,aurangjb) taliban is coming ,get up tie ur laces and kick this 60 yrs of rule by one family out.
