I am not well read on the judgement on the Gujarat massacre. But by all accounts Modi was a major perpetrator and implicated but never accused or tried. That, ...

Re: Muharram in Indore 1440/2018

By donating money to Mahakaal Mandir, Mufaddal Bhai Saheb made a PR coupe. If the intention was to foster communal harmony then it is woefully useless. Hindu/Muslim rivalry is deep seated and is being continually fanned by Shiv Sena, Vishwa Hindu Parishad, Rashtriya Seva Sang and stalwarts in Bharat...
