  1. Before 1985, people used to celebrate festivals together. The politicians to further their selfish agenda sowed seeds of hatred. It’s high time that elders advise youngsters the happiness of living together. Violence multiplies hatred leading only to destruction. God bless Belgaum.

  2. We have the same colour blood, we breathe the same air , we drink the same water, we pray , we celebrate, we got families , we got brothers and sister, we use the same road , we go to the same school, we listen to the same master, we do everything same to same… then WHY fight in the name of religion. Shame on the people who get involved in such communal clash. Stop blaming the Politician,s now. Those involved in these violence are not small kids they are grown ups who can definitely think what is good and what is bad for the community. Please guys think before you get involved in these sort of fights. Harmony is the only solution, Peace is the only answer and living together is the only situation…..

    • Hello Vinayak,

      I totally agree with you. The words that you have spelt out are facts that need to be understood. It is sheer political mileage that some vested interests seek behind all these turmoil. There is nothing to benefit for any common man. Let us all join hands in bridging the gap & enabling productive interaction and dialogue. Let us all coexist with peace. May God Almighty bless us all.

  3. It hurts to see these things happening in this age of technological revolution & global growth. When will the “togetherness” & “understanding” of “coexisting” as humans evolve? We all need to come together to find answers..

  4. PLEASE FOR GOD SAKE DON`T FIGHT BASED ON LANGUAGE AND COMMUNITY/ RELIGION… BELGAUM IS A PEACEFUL PLACE AND POLITICIANS ARE SPOILING IT, PLEASE PEOPLE OF BELGAUM USE YOUR HEADS AND LIVE LIKE BROTHERS AND SISTERS
