In this he has alleged that people of particular community celebrating the ‘Milad-un-Nabi’ festival have vandalised the shops and vehicles of Hindus, while Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, as usual, has let those people go free without taking any action.

Editorial Viewpoint

  • Please note that the so-called secularists, who otherwise preach Hindus, will not utter a single word of protest in this case !
  • What is wrong if someone says that ‘Muslim festivals and violence have become synonymous’ ?
