    Preaching hatred does not qualify as a flaw.

    A politically connected friend from Bombay txtd me. He has died from organ failure (multiple?).

    The media is holding off presumably to prevent panic and violence.

    ^^ I put my money on the guess that there will be no violence. Maybe some minor stone-pelting stuff. It ain't the 90s anymore. Let us see, hope I am right.
