    Was passing by Bhatkal recently and looking at the serine environment, was wondering what was making these people to be anti-social?
    This man did not lack education. Probably had too much of it, and he travelled thousands of kilometres to find a wife (read: excuse) in Pakistan and indulged in anti-state activities. All in the name of religion. Very Sad really.

    We should not give visa to Pakistani people for more than a week.... even for that week we should fit them with gps tracking devices and track them.... otherwise its dangerous for our people as these terrorists can misuse our kindness and kill our people.

    Most of the so called accused are released after decades in jail as they turn out to be innocents. Thanks to true Hindu officer like Hemant Karkare we know who did Malegaon, Ajmer, Mecca Masjid,Samjhauta Express blasts. With the govt at centre and state forget the truth coming out. Democracy is dead in this country.

    These people intention to go to travel dubai..latter on to land in pak.
    People from Bhatkal and Kasargod having good connection in pak from the past. When informed during partition if any one wants to travel to pak..most of them stayed back. Why they not opted for Islamic country where in they might have received all amenites without much problem.
