None of these Hinduphobic secular bigots show similar sentiments towards those innocent 62 Hindus who were burnt alive in that terrorist attack or 254 Hindus who died in the riots, thereafter.
Why this prejudice? Are Hindus any less of Citizen of Bharat than Muslims? It shows how fictitious such people's claims are of being "Secular".
