    • Where is the pathetic ZioNazi controlled-UN, ‘democracy/human-rights’- loving Western regimes and Saudi Arabian/UAE OIC – to prevent such Socio-Cultural Genocide of Indian Muslims in India by NATO member, the Modi/BJP/RSS regime?! Also, such Genocide will lead to another most horrific physical Genocide in India towards Indian Muslims by the pro-ISrael ZioNazi Modi/BJP/RSS Mass Murderers, Robbers and Rapists!

      • Abdullah II Ibn Al Hussein , King of Jordon 41st Generation are direct decendents of Prophet Mohammed, all the women in his family wear western clothing none of them wear burqa or hijab. But the 3rd generation converts from Karnataka who say Hijab is madatory part of religion, cannot prove to us which verse in the quran makes the burqa mantatory for followers of Quran. So now the conversts are more muslims than the direct decendents of prophet mohammed family. lol.
        Meanwhile in Pakistan which claims it is a Islamic state has not made it mandatory to wear burqa why
        Recently Saudi Arabia has started to morderize, the Women watching football match in Saudi Arabia given choice not to wear Abhaya or wear other modest clothing of choice. Women were seen without Abhaya in concerts in Saudi.
        In Afghanistan women are fighting against the burqa even challenging taliban.

        But now women in India are becoming regressive. haha …lol

      • No Muslim till date is able to answer , If Islam is word of God and if the prophet of God used Female prisoners as sex slaves then does it mean that God supported forced sex and slavery. In reality the preaching’s of Mohammed were corrupted soon after his death and the first victim of radical Islam was Fatima , prophet Mohammed’s own daughter. Lies and deceit is part and parcel of Islam since that time. Muslim of Sub Continent are slaves of the Arabs who were forced or bribed to convert or child born to slave girl born in captivity forcibly made a Muslim. If President of India can be bribed by enemy nations then there is no patriotism in any Muslims.
