Shiv ji, when you bring out so many english words and simultaneously suggest that the meaning of these are sacroscant then one just has to look around to find if that is true.

You can form your judgement form the approval ratings at the time of the Shakti tests. There is a real India and then there is one that gets shown to the world. MSM can be safely ignored except for the limited purpose of cussing them. Most likely they are moderating the discussion.
