Editorial comments

  • Despite the experience of Shri Ramnavami, why the Police did not provide special security during the passage of the Shri Hanuman Jayanti procession in the Muslim-majority areas ? Why were they not extra vigilant ?
  • Even after facing criticism from across the country for the attacks on Shri Ramnavami processions, the religious fanatics attacked the procession of Shri Hanuman Jayanti and showed the Hindus that ‘None can bother us’. To destroy such a mentality, there’s no alternative to the Hindu Nation !
  • Seeing that stones are pelted from the roof of mosques each time, a law should be passed under which the roof of every mosque in the country should be inspected by the Police every day ! If piles of stones are found in mosques, then such mosques must be shut down by the administration !
  • Where are the so-called secularists now who say ‘minorities in the country are insecure’ ?
