Re: 2019 Strategic and Political Analysis-1

Yes. Except, referring to the present day treatments of dalit Hindus in muslim majority areas in general across India. Just studying how non muslim minority gets treated is enough to open eyes. If that's not enough then the subject is pretending to be asleep and more of a danger than jihadi. Hindus...

Re: 2019 Strategic and Political Analysis-1

For eye opening of Hindus, there should be a list of places like Nuh, Mewat to know what happens to Hindus in muslim areas. Are you referring to atrocity at the hands Meo Muslims?
