Anyone celebrating the assassination of the father of the nation, is essentially celebrating violence. In other words, these Hindu Mahasabha loonies are undermining Indian Constitution and law. Any punishment for them or is it only reserved for those who crack benign jokes? https://t.co/nrNRMJnsUk

Hindu Mahasabha reflects their true colours by burning effigies of Father of Nation, this is why Sh. Subhash Chandra Bose ji warned that these elements are traitors and banished from Country.
