  1. Police and Security forces are making ultimate sacrifices fighting these rats. Is it really worth in a country where Congress Party and Seethaarama yechuri are not willing to take India’s side? Is it really worth when Bakra dutta and dishonest stenographers in media are too afraid to name the enemy? Is it worth where college campuses allow pro-pakistan, anti-india groups to openly peddle their propaganda? I don’t think today’s India will survive for too long. In a few generations, these fork tongued groups will succeed in breaking country into multiple pieces as proudly told by those JNU protesters.
