Our democracy has become a sham,
Where freedom of expression has been stifled.
None of our so called secular parties have given a cogent reply,
to the above mentioned issues.
Hypocrisy rules our country.

There is no secular in this people at the helm of affairs have to look after the sentiments and sensitive of various group in the state, look after the law and order, look after peace in the state. Film personalities and novelists must see the sentiments of various people and act responsibly. Inspite of the TN Govt calling Kamal for meeting with leaders of muslim communities he has not acted fast in allaying their fears. Rushdie also has no business to comment on our leaders who are equally responsible for law and order maintenance.

Our tolerance levels have been hijacked by minority mob mentality
and all fundamental rights under the constitution held at bay by a group in the name of vote politics.
The definition of secularism has been changed to appeasement and the results are for all to see.
