“When holy places of Hindus are attacked, no reactions are witnessed. But as soon as Muslim community in Myanmar is attacked, its reactions are seen in Mumbai and Hindus are assaulted. Therefore, in order to prevent communal riots in the country Hindus should get trained in self-defence,” said Sanjiv Punalekar, national secretary of Hindu Vidhidnya Parishad, who is also a lawyer by profession.
“If evildoers can unite, why not gentlemen,” asked Vinod Kumar Sarvodaya, a businessman from Uttar Pradesh.
