  1. So any body can make such claims & presstitute media will highlight it. If this is not inciting communal riots what else is ? On hearsay they put out such headlines. Its just like Pakistan where if a Muslim accuses some one of blasphemy he or she is lynched.

  2. Nowadays, it is a fashion for muslims to violate law and then blame the opposition party with communal angle to get away.
