    Please ask your brethren living in Muslim countries to pack their bags and return to India. Vatican will support their livelihood. When you SAY YOU PEOPLE, then your brethren shouldn't live in their countries and spew venom.

    Now a days it's become difficult to stay for minorites wherever they are in majority. It's not meant only in Kasargod/Kashmir/Muzzafarnagar but in any part of the world. Please hang them in public all and punish others who associated directly/indirectly in the crime.
