“ People living in minorities should at this point of time  remin alert against the barbaric incidents which are going on ,

What was the crime of Makhan Lal Bindroo , only this he served the people of Kashmir with all his dedications . He “ Makhan Lal Bindroo” considerd his work as his worship he proved true to the salt of this soil.

The prophet Muhammad” PBUH” taught us that we should live for the sake of humanity , the Qur’an and prophets have said  that “ to kill an innocent is to kill the whole humanity” so who cares all about these things.

Our Sikh Sister was chiselling and moulding the future of the next generation was this her crime , our pandit brother was a teacher was he killed for this reason that he was removing the children from darkness to light to give them their dignified future .

In this blood bath a Muslim daughter has  lost her Sikh godmother , now how can I teach her daughter the lessons of humanity , whose religion was this to snatch a daughter her mother”

“We are ashamed after being living in togetherness to see what we are doing to each other, we have different textures of eyes but the tears are same , we have different sorts of gallows but the pain is same .
