  1. Another Mohamed from Kasaragodu getting into legal trouble at mangaluru vimaana nildaana!!
    Now let’s reverse the situation a little bit – Imagine havyaka brahmana guys from puttur-sullia region getting caught in every single smuggling act at airport. Our shameless fake-secular crowd would have gone gung-ho over those incidents questioning morale and ethics of havyaka community!! However, when it comes to ‘peaceful’ community, the same folks are very silent. From Joker Praveena to Henry James and Pincode Pai, the lack of intellectual honesty and moral courage to question ‘peaceful’ group is depressing. No courage to support cartoons but plenty of fake outrage on beef issue!! Then you wonder why ‘peaceful’ group is the fastest growing community in Europe!! smiles…

  2. The law allows to take upto $5000.00 worth of currency and another $5000.00 worth of negotiable instruments out of the country without declaring to customs. Can someone explain why was this seizure?

  3. Why was this seizure? -Mr.Lawrence,

    Sir,The real fact the first accused is Indian Muslim national belongs to Kasargod.

    While Adani and Amabani can stash Dollar accounts in Billions in tax Heavens can be let go because of high calibre business association with Chaiwala government.

    PM Modi’s India is heading for ‘Banana republic’ while criminals running the democracy.VIP judges passing the verdict for honour murders with ‘clean chit’

    MIA is the part saffrnoisation of system. This type of cases is evident in daily basis. If passenger was caught on suspicions of carrying ‘Hydrogen peroxide’ easily available in barber shop,what can we expect them?

    Where was those seized money and gold goes?

    Jai hind
