Man- neither for religion nor caste

Ambedkar Jayanti: Only when the likes of casteist, violent brutes would be prosecuted, awarded exemplary punishment, their fellow-minded counterparts will think twice before indulging in such barbaric violence.

England had it all, Allah as well!

Posted on 6 Feb 2022
