    During the previous Congress regime, Original RSS and duplicate Don Quixote, R.Paimaam of USA, used to criticize the government incessantly for Pak attacks on Indians and twirling his RSS lathi in the air if somebody was there to shout “ek do”. He was calling us shameless and even calling Congress as ISI agents, even though these incidents were few and far between when compared to the daily violation by Pakistan during the Modi rule.

    BUT, NOW SUDDENLY RSS PAIMAAM HAS GONE DEAF AND DUMB, SELECTIVELY; TO FEIGN IGNORANCE ABOUT DAILY THRASHING OF OUR ARMY BY PAKISTAN. THIS IS THE BREAKING POINT, FOR THIS SHOWS THAT FOR HIM; INDIA, INDIAN JAWANS ETC MEAN NOTHING WHEN COMPARED TO HIS CRONEYISM TO MODI!

    WHEN I EXPRESS MY CONCERN FOR THE PLIGHT OF INDIA NOW, UNFAILINGLY HE SAYS THAT I AM A TRAITOR. HE MUST KNOW I AM A PATRIOT TO INDIA AND MODI MEANS NOTHING TO ME, AS FAR AS MY PATRIOTISM IS CONCERNED.
