  1. Obvisouly the report has been changed slightly. The Admin added two people from Belgaum and not from neighbouring country. And then went about with the verbal abuse said person religion and race. Maybe caste and creed too. This angered them and they lodged the complaint. Whatsapp was just the medium. If this was 10 yrs ago, it would have been Facebook. If 20? Orkut . If 30? Yahoo messenger. If beyond 40? Letters. If old times , leather and if this was the start of civilisation, stones.

  2. Gr8 step towards a peaceful India. All anti-social & anti-national elements shud be punished irrespective of their religion.

  3. This is the way to stop riots good steps no one should be spared who ever takes law in hands should be done same and let’s speak about development not division among Hindus and Muslim already there r many things to be done
