Re: Wuhan Coronavirus Resource Thread

I will go on a limb and say this. The awe-inspiring 21-day lockdown in India may be the single most significant action that will trigger the retreat and eventual defeat of this Chinese virus worldwide. Its that time in history. India as always..Jagadguru.

The reason RJB took only 29 years to resolve is because there was no Mosque demolition job to do. Just facts and evidences. Mathura and Kashi have functioning mosques, a world of difference. Lets not kid ourselves thinking they will be cakewalks now.

I think this Yazdi religion is very similar to a particular cult in Hinduism too - The Shirdi Sai Baba worshippers. This is also an essentially Hindu worship but founded by a Muslim monk. The followers are almost entirely Hindu and the Muslim founder is a total unknown in Muslim world.
