  1. Nonsense. Utter Muslim Nonsense.

    Muslims need a roadmap to get off the Ration Card. Muslims’s Ration Card should be revoked when they through Stones or Rocks at Kaffirs in India. Muslims with 4 wives and tons on Children are dangerous to India’s security.

    A Ration Card holder, getting subsidized Ration is a burden to Kaffirs and Country.

    Just imagine how much India can grow if all Ration Cards issued to Muslims for subsidized food are revoked and they also denied free expensive Burial Land.

    Force Muslims to Work for living. Lift Muslim Burden off the Country’s Budget.
