Dear BBC:

Thank you very much for having interviewed Mukesh Singh, the rapist awaiting appeal on his death sentence. Thank you for being concerned about “India’s Daughter”. Let’s for a moment set aside Leslee Udwin’s competency as a journalist; having read her report, I have second thoughts about her level of common sense itself! She had come to India expecting an 8-feet tall, one-eyed monster with blood dripping from his fangs, and is surprised to see that Mukesh Singh is a “normal common bus driver”!

Dear Sri Modi Ji,

Please examine thoroughly the great words of our Masters and if those words are understood and applied, you have lifted the glory of India back to its original status throughout this wide world.

TIME TO APPLY FIRMNESS. They must not be allowed to joke with the Nature Laws and by giving thorough understanding, they will think twice to do such heinous crimes against Hindu Temples and Aryas.

Frankly speaking, we have been pleasantly surprised by the second editorial in “The Statesman” of March 10, 2015, with the caption, “Civilisation Bulldozed”. That the media also cares for or indulges in assessment of civilisational loss is something not usually found.
