Javed | 9 years ago | Reply India and RAW doesn't need to do anything to further death and destruction - our own breed of hate mongering, mullahs and seminaries have clearly been quite capable of that. How these people are brain washed to think that any religion or any God would condone such action is beyond me. Sad state of affair.
