    Please do not bring Politics / religion / law unnecessarily for every issue, if everyone follows their religion / law conscientiously then there would not have been so much issues in this world. Now you are bringing law every time in this forum, i would like you to educate us on What is your law says for 1) For entering poor farmers home, threatening them with swords & then stealing the cows forcefully & violently & making the poor farmer beggar. 2) For supplying drugs to the innocent young students and robbing them from their studies and making them drug addict and spend their time in rehabilitation center.
