Editorial viewpoints

  • The number of Hindus and Sikhs in Muslim-majority countries which were separated from India is decreasing day by day. In the last 75 years, the Indian Government has never raised its voice about this, nor have any Hindu organisations pressurized the Government to do so. This is shameful for Indian Hindus!
  • It would not be surprising if the Hindus of India face the same conditions as the Hindus in the Islamic countries of Afghanistan, Pakistan and Bangladesh. Indian Hindus have already experienced this in Kashmir and some districts of Bengal.
