    Doesn't matter who were involved in this incident, they have to get maximum punishment so that it will deter others to even to think about doing harm to anyone. it is time to stop all processions in India. We should be able to practice our religion in our personal life, we don't need to show off that with a procession. STOP this and that will solve half the problem of India.

    Hindus of Shivmogga have rejected criminal BJP and voted congress to power for their safety and security. More than police Hindus of Shivmogga know who pelted stones and who were brandishing machetes, swords and trishuls.

    CCTV footage says it all. Investigations will prove it all. No need to mention names or communities.
