Whatever you tried to tell me , I do understand each and everything that the real problems in India are caused by Pakistan and in return Indian muslims are blamed. Mr Amitabh do really have a problem with every muslims. and he wants to set things in Secular India. We have our National anthem then why one more is needed. Who is internally making problems in India and helping Anti India forces? And now Mr Amitabh wants against to talk Defaming RSS and Bajrang Dal , So freedom of speech is not applied on me. When i can say Pakistan Murdabad being an muslim.cant i say abt RSS and Bajrang Dal in Secular india ?

I have many Hindu and Christian friends in real life, There is no Hindu in india who dont know a muslim or christian , and like that the same with muslims and even Christians. This is Secular India , but why that secularism have to pay the price now coz of some parties who have agenda's which are making problems inside India.

First thing i dont hate any person or any religion in this world and this i have learned from Islam, Second thing i m proud to say that i m an Indian , But why i have to prove my nationalism again and again, Does singing Vande Mantram make me a true indian ? Does supporting RSS and Bajrang Dal ideologies does makes me true Indian ? Does supporting for Ram Temple makes me True Indian ? or i have lost all the rights being an Indian coz i m Muslim now ?

First thing which i know that Nationalism comes from Heart that its my motherland which i m having. Second thing i m not in any anti India things. I do respect the constitution, Flag , Anthem and every Indian ..I beleive that India is a secular country and all citizens are equal. Who have taken Law in hands in 1992 ? Who disrespected indian Constitution and Supreme court Verdict ? Well nationalism doesnt comes from only majority community and Minorities also play a part in every thing .

Mr Amitabh mentioned so many things abt the crimes by muslims . why he forget to take the name of DARA Singh , and many more .. Terrorism is not Islam nor Hinduism nor Christianity or Judaism. Followers are but not the religion. Terrorists makes up an ideology which is nowhere near to the main stream.
