Editorial viewpoints

  • Please note that though Hindus are in a majority in India, their Religious festivals and programmes are attacked by the minority community, this does not happen anywhere else in the world.
  • Hindus feel that the Religious fanatics should not have the daring to do this, when there is a BJP Government in Gujarat.
