  1. Modiji, hope you get this urgent message before you leave Paris.

    After such a warm and double hand shake please count your fingers, and make sure all 10 are there !!! Don’t trust this “Sharif Guy” as he is only “Naam ka Sharif” and he may have pocketed one of your fingers and you are never going to get it back. It is very hard to find any “Kaam Ka Sharif’s” in the “Islamic Republic of Pakistan” LOL.

  2. Someone needs to tell Pradhaana Sevaka that it is a waste of time to meet the head of a terrorist nation.-Atheist Mr.Original Pai

    Sir, Why can’t Modi government employ journalist and Baba Ramdev associate Ved Prakash Vaidik who met 26/11 attack mastermind Hafiz Saeed and extensive knowledge of Pakistan?

    We can also send Chhota Rajan who turned himself after two decade. If none agree we will send Salman Khan.

    Jai Hind
