    Ms kumari

    It sounds so awkward to hear such irrelevant words from you.
    You seems to be a member of RSS, you are happy when innocdnt non -Hindus are killed.

    If you're family members were targeted like the one in new zealand you would hv not felt excited like how you felt now.

    Have some shame.

    After #Christchurch terror attck-

    >PM Ardern addressed the nation & ordered additional security for all mosques.

    After Pulwama terror attack-

    >PM was shooting in a park.
    >UP CM was addressing rally.
    >& Defence min was blaming Nehru.

    This is the difference b/w a Leader & clown

    Still Shri Narendra Modiji...will be elected once again as prime minister. We not bother about certain percentage of people spitting venom now and than. For giving security to all...what provision done by previous govt..after ruling sixty years...??. More than 40% people living below poverty line. Do you think it's only duty of govt...?? Go and do some security work in past time..in the interest of nation.

    Narayana
    What is the use of security if a man can enter and shoot at will means?
    Do you think security was there? If no what is the meaning of "additional security"
    Within 13 days of Pulwama MODI took the revenge by bombing hide outs of terrorist. We will see what PM of NZ will do in next 13 days
