    Guha is a congress chamchay. Why he is silent about Hindu killings in Kashmir. Why he has closed his eyes. He is not an historian, rather a chamchay of Congress goons

    Guha is not a historian he is a fictional writer.

    According to them any person who supports BJP is a Bhakt. Even if they have no logic to prove that they are better , no better solution for problems rather than creating more problems. They don't have any excuse for their own shortcomings so they try to attack the supporters by calling them "bhakts". They won't listen to your logic of why you support them but tag you as a "bhakt". Also if you notice that how they deliberately use the word "BHAKT" which is of extreme significance in Hinduism and clearly we can see the "anti Hindu" agenda from here.They don't even understand that "bhakti" is based on "trust" and doesn't come in a day and even if someone is a "bhakt" of any person that means he's trustworthy enough to have gained that. Your corruption doesn't make people have trust in you because you have no other worth than criticizing others and create more problems but never a solution, try to oppose every course of administration. Also as I've pointed many times that Brut is a leftist mouthpiece as evident from the bias in EVERY news.

    If the bill had only used word minorities for inclusion of all suffering then there was no dispute.. Only one religion excluded.. Result the friendly countries in Gulf , Bangladesh , Afghanistan who we helped now hate India.. What is the use of so many visits to Gulf and other countries...the PM has been visiting record times...No other PM has visited these many times to Foreign countries worldwide.. including china visits 18 times again a record...

    Brute is very straight forward with facts and figures.. Any one who is liberals means believing in social and economic equality.. Who believe in social values and is hardcore human at heart.. If this is urban naxal according to bhakts then call me liberal..

    Mr Guha you r a very respectable historian But unfortunately a person of yr calibre appears to be playing to a gallery.Your views may be right in some sense to some segment of people and not be universally appealing especially in a secular country like ours.Every time i find you r harping on the same tune and listern think it is a gramaphone.It is not my desire to belittle yr views but shd be appealing to all with due respects and not slanted to people who are waiting fr support to decry an elected govt who are trying to bring a new awakening having suffered heavily in the past.For u Hinduism is ok but what is HINDUTVA IS NOT OK.In other words are u saying there shd be no religion for HINDUS Yr explanations are very misleading and perhaps creating unwanted confusion.Where there is no problem what is the purpose of creating a non-existent problem.I know you are interested in sports and want u to hold the spirit of SPORTSMENSHIP. Shall be grateful if u speak to me on 9845478652. Raghavan Raghunathan 5
