There it is… in simplest words. We Hindus only are to be blamed, not learning from history, being spineless and lying to ourselves it is tolerance/progressiveness. A frightened lot we are, afraid of the barbarism and cruelty that would be inflicted upon us if we speak up. https://t.co/392dVDrz4h

Muslims get killed for eating cow-meat because it hurt some folks’ feeling. Let alone blaspheme against gods, some people cannot tolerate others’ eating habits. https://t.co/MDnvKSMpu9
