Chandigarh-Shimla Diocese gives clean chit to the missionary school that expelled Ruchika

“Bring back Aurangzeb’s rule” says Congress’s Aurangabad candidate’s poster

The poster used in election campaign by one Sayyad Abdul Qadir Aamir (Qadir Maulana) – who stood on a Cong/NCP ticket from Aurangabad calls for Islamization of Aurangabad.

At this point the clueless types will ask: what was the Election Commission doing? While Qadir Maulana did not win the election, another Imam (a product of Deoband) did. This is the first time an imam has won in Maharashtra.
