Editorial viewpoints

  • When will the Hindus realise that in this country it is crime to appeal to Hindus to patronise Hindus ? This situation makes the establishment of Hindu Rashtra inevitable.
  • What else can happen in Tamil Nadu, which has a Pro-Muslim atheist Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) Government ?
