  1. Isn’t ironic that we need to give so much protection to god ? Well…

    On a different note, this incident is simply being reported as just another case of burglary. In fact, that may very well be true. No intelligent person will link this incident to state Govt and accuse Congress of trying to make hindus live in fear and insecurity!! However, I remember all the euphoria and (fake)outrage over ‘attacks on minority worshiping places’ after Modiji came to power!! The certain sections of media and some known troublemakers tried their best to accuse BJP of bullying minorities!! No intelligent person should have done it. Then again, they are not known for any intelligent ideas or honesty. smiles…
