    Do you guys remember him, he was the owner of Peace Tv in India & used to run Anti- India shows.

    Wonder why KSA supports such people who criticizes other religions, his interpretation of Hinduism is wrong.

    Again are you joking?

    That guy is rabid dog - from his voice to filth he espouses to the way he looks. He is the epitome of the reason that in these days of SM and youtube more and more as you people call internet Hindus, are turning hardcore anti-islam. For the sake of Indian Muslims, this guy needs to be shunned. He demeans every other religion and that is what the barbarians is KSA love. So they ackonwledge it openly, what's wrong in that? The muslim world cares squat about other people's feelings unless it is whites from a powerful western nation.

    Now, you have been in this forum for quite a while and it is expected you would know this bits yourselves. Shouldn't you?

    This guy quotes from Q'uran to prove that Q'uran is correct. This guy has been banned entry in several western countries, he must get same treatment here in India. He must be stopped from spreading BS.
