I need to say this

I need to say this on this
My self being an indian think that this was necessary as india has a bad past of hindu muslim riots,and boths hindus and muslims are equally responsible for this.Any spark in the tense palces like mumbai.assam lucknow and delhi could lead to riots.Parties like VHP ( world hindu council) and RSS ( National serving group) have been banned by the gov.t and any body who is a member is kept under strict survelliance.
Well some times for the sake of the nation you have to do some thing bitter.
The gov.t of india is not against any political sites.you can see that by browsing through thousands of Anti india sites ( Kashmir for instance)
Hope you get what i said.
