    They are beyond repair. We need mayanmar-rohenga Policy right now. The problem is in only 5 distric . Just 5 district not in whole kashmir. Siya, Buddist and Hindu majority are always with India and proud India. Back in 90's it just 3 district. Eliminate them before it spread more. Sometime peace needs war.

    If I abuse his father then he will call it hate speech. But if he abuses my Prophet(saw) ppl will term it as Freedom of Speech. I DENY THE HOLOCAUST THE JEWS N CHRISTIANS WILL IMPRISON OR MURDER ME BUT ya they all have the liscence to abuse us. Self proclaimed champions of humanity n freedom of speech

    Right Wing governments attacking the arts? I respect Rushdie as an author but this is just manipulating the truth too far. Dear sir, if you would have paid a bit more attention to history, you would have found that real illiberals are the Communists who have no tolerance for ideologies opposed to their tyranny. According to you, China & USSR must have been the most liberal nations where art thrived profusely? What a joke!
