India in the Thinker’s Cafe



Have you heard that Premier Wen Jiabao is in New Delhi? When I posted the question this week, I ended up informing some Beijingers that their leader happened to be in India.

The three-day meeting achieved more on trade deals and camera-friendly handshakes than strategic substance. The joint statement hit a discordant note over China’s Kashmir policy with India leaving out a standard reference to Tibet and the one-China principle included in past statements. As HT reported,  there was no change in India’s official stance but the joint statement was less explicit.

The Chinese media reports said the visit was a success.

On Saturday morning in a quiet cafe above a dusty bookstore, I got a sense of softening public opinion on the bilateral relationship, compared to before the visit. (However, on some People’s Daily forums there were strains of dismay and rebuke from netizens against fence-mending overtures.)

I was at the Thinker’s Café, a hangout for intellectuals and bookworms in a suburb of students and young migrants. A waitress with Chanel emblazoned on her jeans served my cappuccino. Sweatshirts and spectacles seemed to be the standard customer id except for the Buddhist in maroon robe at a corner table next to a window bathed in sunshine. A toy Santa, reindeer and assorted stuffed animals stood on the centrepiece next to traditional porcelain vases.

At the table next to us, IT professional Lei Qu said he had missed news of the India-China dialogue in Delhi. I asked him if he thinks India and China are friends, rivals or just neighbours. “Most of the time India and China are friends,’’ he said. “The most important thing in the 21st century is economic ties. Friendship is good for both sides. The disagreements will not affect people-to-people ties and business ties.’’

Lei’s views were not shaped by state-run propaganda. He said he reads the newspapers but doesn’t find regular news about India in the Chinese media with exceptions for dispatches on Bollywood and the disputed border. Lei spent five years as a computer science student in Los Angeles, where he made friends with Indian students and formed his own impressions of India. For instance: Indians are good at business…and they talk a lot’’.

Wang Shan who brought us the bill said she had followed Wen’s visit on national television. “India and China are neither friends nor rivals,’’ said the former law student. “They are just neighbours.’’ She was the only Chinese person I met that day who knew about the Premier’s tour of India. She explained her belief that India-China cannot be rivals because they have ‘no disagreements’. It’s not uncommon to hear the Chinese express friendship toward India, but it’s rare to meet someone who sums up that the neighbours sharing a disputed border don’t have disputes.

The previous day in another part of Beijing, an elderly school teacher who is an avid newspaper reader had also expressed the same view. “India-China are just neighbours without any disagreements,’’ said Zhang Qiuyan. “Nowadays, relations between the US, Japan, Korean Peninsula are pretty tough, so we are eager to make friends with India, which faces the same developmental challenges as China. Wen’s visit to India will improve relations.”

The café had emptied so we went down a staircase lined with dusty pumpkins forgotten since Halloween. Next to a few translated copies of Aurobindo’s Letters on Yoga, we met Tsinghua journalism and communications student Alexander Lui. He thinks that India-China are friendly neighbours and it’s ‘a pity’ that he doesn’t have more Indian students to interact with on campus.

“We all know India has a long history. India gave birth to major religions like Buddhism.’’

What do you know about modern India?

He laughed good-naturedly. “I know basic facts…Gandhi, Nehru…and no more!’’

Back home, I was still thinking about the comments jotted in my notebook. So I reread Wen’s speech in New Delhi. “China and India should always be partners and friends. We should never be rivals. We should tell this to everyone.”

    Modi rightly denied these so called paltry gifts. He has every right to demonstrate his pleasure or displeasure about head gears & robes. I am glad that he did not stoop to meanness. The message would have been that Modi had been conquered by a paltry skull cap. Modi should keep winning hearts by good administration & progress of his subjects.

    It just needs some common sense and awareness to know that there has been no accounts of bombs being triggered by Hindus in Pakistan even though the state of Pakistan has institutionalized discrimination against nonmuslims, the Pakistan society there has institutionalized kidnapping, rape and forced conversion of Hindu girls into the Arab cult and the world including supposedly “Hindu India” has turned a blind eye to all this. Does ur mind need “eminent lawyers” and can’t work on it’s own based on known facts?

    It proves how much he hates the Muslims. Even the RSS and the BJP might not be having such a strong feeling against the Muslims as Modi has. When he cannot love his own mother, wife and brothers how one can expect from him to love Muslims of a different community as he is so communal from his inner belief and thought. Very soon he too will go in the same way as how yadiyurappa got from the above organizations. The moment he becomes a liability to them they will disown him and he will be no whare. That day is fast approaching. The 2002 Gujarat Riots and his role in it against a particular community speaks volumes in support of it. Let one wait for that moment.

    If the Muslims and their leaders renounce the advocacy of JEHAD against other religious followers as well as accept the fact that Islam needs to exist with other religions in peaceful existence, all Indians will accept their gifts without any reservations.

    What about simple hindu gifts of Prasad and Tilak to Bukhari, Saudi King and other muslim leaders?

    [Reply]

    RajX Reply:

    Ah…that wont work. Hindus are idolators. The “one and only holy book and user guide for life” from the arabs has already called these idolators evil. Bukhari from Bukhara and the Saudi king are MUSLIM and hence superior because the book says so. If the book says so, then it must be true. Since the book is not from humans but from god, you can’t question the book. This is how the Islamist circular thought works. If the book says the world is flat, then the world is really flat and it’s not the book which is wrong but modern science since a book from god can never be wrong.

    The premise of this article is ridiculous. Why would a nonmuslim indian accept an Arab religious skull cap? If Muslims follow some Indian customs there is a logic behind it since Indian Muslims are Indian and most of them are of Indian stock. The same doesn’t hold the other way around. The skull cap is a symbol of an Arab religion. No nonmuslim would wear it. Zia as usual “forgot” to mention some inconvenient facts. The fact that Modi did accept a shawl from the same person who offered him a skull cap. So it’s not the the religion of the person in question but the religious symbolism of the gift being offered which resulted in it’s rejection. If you want to attack Modi, there are many factual ways to do it. Attack him for not doing enough to stop the violence against Muslims during the godhra riots. But this is a silly and frivolous attack not based on substance. It’s much like most articles which Zia has been writing. No substance but I still like to read the responses. They are more interesting than the article.

    [Reply]

  • RajX

    Offering a ganapati to an Indian Muslim is ok. An Indian Muslim is Indian and so is the ganapati. But a skull cap is a Arab religious symbol. We can bow to a Indian Muslim but not to Arab symbolism.

    [Reply]

  • RajX

    Good points. Arabization has taken a severe toll on some sections of indian Muslims turning them into foreigners in their own land. This is going to have unfortunate ugly consequences in the long run. People like Zia seem to be encouraging this process of alienating Indian Muslims from India and Indian culture.

    I have heard similar stories especially from people in the gulf countries. They even offer promotions if you are willing to convert and join their Arab club. It’s sickening how these people treat a spiritual thing like religion. But this sort of unhealthy attitude is common among abrahamic religions. All from the same gutter.

    You mean to say that be blind to the fact that the skull cap is a Arab religious symbol? It’s not a baseball cap to be not classified as a religious symbol. Silly.

    Jaffer, nice sentiment by a muslim- If Zakir Naik says do not accept prasad, then Modi has every right to refuse the skull cap. But I think, Jaffer, that we need to ascribe to a higher plane than that- one of harmony, love and co-existence.
    Z Naik is a bit of an idiot, what with his disgusting views on apostacy etc. But I expect higher standards from my leaders. Double digit growth is one thing but building bridges is a long term investment worth quadruple digits. I, an Indian, a hindu, am deeply disappointed that Modi did not wear the cap.

    ILawyer’s report spells trouble for CM Narendra Modi
    in what may spell trouble for Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi and some top state officials, a confidential report by a Supreme Court-appointed lawyer has found no “clinching evidence” to dispute the presence of suspended Gujarat Police officer Sanjiv Bhatt at a meeting called by Modi on the night of February 27, 2002.
    The report has recently been submitted to the Special Investigation Team by Supreme Court-appointed amicus curiae (friend of the court) Raju Ramachandran, in a Gujarat riots case.
    Bhatt had in an affidavit in the Supreme Court in April stated that he was present at the meeting that night and witnessed Modi telling the police to be indifferent to rioters attacking Muslims during the mayhem that followed the Godhra train burning carnage.
    The state government had rejected Bhatt’s statement, saying he was not present at Modi’s residence on that occasion. Ramachandran is understood to have stated in his report that the fate of the case against all those, including Modi, can be decided only after all witnesses, including Bhatt, are cross-examined.

    Zakia is the widow of former Congress MP Ehsaan Jafri, who was burnt alive with 68 others at the Gulberg Housing Society in Ahmedabad a day after the meeting at Modi’s residence.

    Ramchandran’s report says Bhatt and all other officers present at the controversial meeting should be cross-examined by the trial court.

    If the court accepts Bhatt’s version of what Modi said at the meeting, all those named in Zakia Jafri’s complaint, including the CM, may have to face trial for criminal offences.

    Bhatt was a senior officer with the state police’s intelligence wing and as the intelligence chief did not attend the meeting, his statement draws credibility from the fact that such an important meeting could not have taken place without keeping this wing out, the report is learnt to have observed.

    Ramachandran is also learnt to have rejected the state government’s argument that Bhatt has levelled wild allegations against Modi and other senior officials because he is a disgruntled officer.

    On why Bhatt chose to speak out nine years after the riots, the amicus curiae is understood to have accepted his view that being a serving officer, he could have spoken out either before a commission or an inquiry.

    Ramachandran declined to comment on his findings. “I neither confirm nor deny your information,” he told HT. Gujarat government spokesperson Jai Narayan Vyas too refused to comment on the findings

    I wouldn’t be surprised if he did. I think our educational institutions have utterly failed when they have produced Indians like Zia trying to throw mud at people using the shield of religion. Did he go to some institution where their values are not aligned with mainstream Indian thoughts? Or did he become like this later in life? Pakistan is bearing the brunt of the failure of their educational system which taught fanatical hatred and made up history. We have to learn lessons from their failure.

    Answer is very simple, how many muslim leaders or maulvis would wear a hindu tilak on the forehead and a saffron pagri given by a Hindu spiritual leader??

    [Reply]

    Ravi Reply:

    Ranita

    At the face of it, your point is a very good one.

    However, once one has given it a bit more thought then the comparison fails to be an exact one.

    Let me take the two symbols you mention one by one.

    1. Tilak – is a clearly Hindu Religious symbol and only those who belong to that religion should wear it. Just to elaborate, there are Hindus who wear a Tilak comprising of THREE horizontal lines, and yet others would wear THREE Vertical lines. The sect that wears the horizontal tilak will NEVER wear the vertical one and vice a versa. These people belong to the same religion. Therefore, to expect that a Muslim would wear a tilak is simply wrong. However, we are talking about India, where nothing is simple, a Muslim playing the role of Ram in Ramlila, and Dilip Kumar in Ram aur Shyam, did wear tilaks and even sang one of the most beautiful bhajans.

    2. Saffron Pagri – Muslims in India as well as Pakistan do wear Pagri. The issue probably is with the Saffron Colour. I would’nt wear one.

    My view is that the offer as well as the rejection had a political element in it and it was meant as a trap and Modi was right to refuse. Not on relgious grounds but on entrapment grounds.

    BTW the RSS Sarsangchalak Deoras did accept muslim scarfs, and topis and was seen wearing them.

    Modi didnt accept skull cap and it is his choice, Nothing wrong with that. And that funny guy who presented cap to him, no one came forward for modi and so this cartoon guy was called.
    And may be this whole thing is triggered by modi. Neta’s will do anything for vote.
    Moon, if mutton biryani is prepared with so much hard work, will Mr. pandey or tripathi or pathak will accept it? And if there are meat dishes in pot luck, it is choice to be made, some people will have meat some would not, why such a hue and cry. And muslims are much modest than brahmins and jains and their diet is too strict. Every body bring something for potluck so if a muslim guy don’t have one or two dishes, what is wrong with that. There is a dish you dont like and you dont eat it. simple as that. My bro always likes seafood but never go near river fish, we never complain.

    And if when jain bro says no to your onoin pakoda or brahmin says no to your cake because it MAY have an egg in it or a meat dish, what do you call them, I wonder…..

    You speak of Hanumanjika prasad and I never accept dargah ki niyaj when I am a muslim. I dont go to dargah. simple as that. I just dont like that atmospheare where they have turned everything in money. Many muslims dont do that.

    Modi was presented a cap by a fool, and modi chose not to wear it which is right and proves that he is not hypcrite like congress or samajwadi. But dont drag musilims in it when they dont have to do anything with it. The person was not an alim but a dargah mujawar and it is not an illuminati secret what type these mujawars are. They rarely have anything islamic in their life. They are just after money and this fool was for publicity. He could have presented a bouquet of flowers but the fool was a pawn and did what he was expected to do.

    Muslims had nothing to do anything with it.

    vande matram is notorious anti-muslim song written by a hindu terrorist bankim chatterjee.
    it shows anti-muslim sentiment.hence should not be sung on national functions.muslim/hindu leaders should be judhed on basis of their qualities of governance not on aarti or namaz.mayawati performed better than modi.fruits of developement have reached to the poors.in gujrat flow of money was hermetically sealed,flowing in certain section,hence poverty has increased,
    show of religion must be banned on public functions.

    Anna Hazare’s Gandhian stunts to fool innocent Indians
    Neither the anti-corruption crusader, Anna Hazare, nor his opponents in the govt. are above corruption. Because corruption (meaning money corruption).flows from the top. It is the ruling upper castes, as the leaders of society, who taught us corruption. And that is how the whole society is today buried in corruption. There is not a single wing of the society which is free from corruption.

    Hazare defends the corrupt: If the current “Khatri Sick” PM or future PMs are free from corruption, why are they afraid of including the office of the PM in LokPal Bill?

    If Anna Hazare is lily white why did he defend Narendra Modi, the killer, and also the country’s most corrupt CM of Karnataka? Anna Hazare is said to be a Gandhian-but it is the Muslims, Christians and Sikhs who became victims of Gandhi and his Gandhism

    Dr. Ambedkar, the Father of India, called Gandhi a top class fraud in his writing and speeches.
    The whole excercise on Lokpal Bill is a waste of time. The frauds on both sides are united while publicly quarreling. But they are secretly trying to take the country on a joy ride, and thereby fool all of us. This is what is happening in the current Anna Hazare’s Gandhian drama

    Here are some other facts.

    1. For thousands of years in the Hindu Society Education was only available to Brahmins. However, some notable exceptions exist, but by and large this is true.

    2. Aryans are aliens to the Indian sub-continent where they have for 3 millennia or more, marginalised the indigenous tribes and other sections of the population. So much so that the History of Northern India is synonymous with the History of Aryans.

    3. Access to education and other such privileges are still very much governed by one’s caste. Lower the caste more difficult it is for an individual to gain access to education. Significant improvement has taken place over the last 200 years or so mainly due to the policies of the Brits – though not exclusivly -, and none of it due to any change of heart among the conservative Hindu society. For an example of progressive Hindus, see below.

    4. The function of reservations is to address inherent in-equalities that exist in our society. We have reservations for a whole variety of criteria. There are reservations to address in-equalities due to religious disadvantages, regional disadvantages, even for children whose fathers served in the forces, etc etc.

    5. Opposition to reservation is almost always led by middle class, Hindu upper castes because the change in status quo hurts them the most.

    6. To maintain caste based hierarchies of privileges is the main agenda of Hinduatva. It wants to re-establish the rigid caste system and denigrate minorities to a permanent second class citizenship.

    7. Whilst I believe the current reservation system can be improved upon, even over-hauled, it remains necessary to create even tiny semblance of equality in our society.

    —————————————————–

    Reservations in favour of Backward Classes (BCs) were introduced long before independence in a large area, comprising the Presidency areas and the Princely states south of the Vindhyas. Chatrapati Sahuji Maharaj, Maharaja of Kolhapur in Maharashtra introduced reservation in favour of non-Brahmin and backward classes as early as 1902. He provided free education to everyone and opened several hostels in Kolhapur to make it easier for everyone to receive the education. He also made sure everyone got suitable employment no matter what social class they belonged. He also appealed for a class-free India and the abolition of untouchability. The notification of 1902 created 50% reservation in services for backward classes/communities in the State of Kolhapur. This is the first official instance (Government Order) providing for reservation for depressed classes in India.

    Aryan theory is a theory cooked up by colonialists to rule over India since they can claim that Indians are not indigenous to the land so they don’t have any claims over it and thus justifying their colonization. It’s sad that “liberal Hindu” ravi is parroting theories cooked up by Europeans to justify their colonization of India. The arabized also use the same strategy to attack dharmic religions claiming parity for the Arab religion with dharmic ones in terms of being indegenous.

    Regarding reservation, it should have always been what it was intended to be for. To help people who are materially “backward”. People have injected caste into it for harvesting votes and now they want to inject religion into. That’s intellectually backward, immoral and disgusting!

    Equipped with two things:

    1. My Pea Brain

    2. The link you provided.

    This is what I discovered in 5 minutes.

    ______

    1. Isn’t it true that the Aryans Invasion Theory has been disproved? There is no evidence of invasions taking place, and the whole theory is based on flaky linguistic theories.

    The Aryan Invasion Theory has many variants. The Aryan Invasion Theory advocating a purely racial “invasion” proposed by Max Mueller has been questioned by many, including the noted historian, Romila Thapar, in the 1960s. The contemporary theory of Aryan origin corroborates data and evidences from over two dozen different fields of study and demonstrate a pattern of cultural, social and linguistic migration/domination/invasion of people speaking the Indo-European languages from Central Asia into India. This theory about the Aryan origin, which is currently the most authoritative theory among historians, does not state that the Aryans were an indigenous people. For details see: “The Aryan Question Revisited”, by Romila Thapar at http://members.tripod.com/ascjnu/aryan.html .

    The Hindutva groups are misleading the masses by criticizing Max Mueller’s Aryan Invasion Theory (which is already discredited) and cleverly, falsely and deviously claiming that Michael Witzel and others (including Romila Thapar) are supporting Max Mueller’s theory. In fact, under the cover of criticizing Max Mueller, the self -styled Hindutva historians [most of whom are engineers and businessmen] are promoting a theory that Aryans did not migrate from Central Asia but were the original inhabitants of India. This theory has been propped up as a propaganda item on numerous websites and is discussed as a community specific truth within the Hindutva circles. It holds no currency within established historical scholarship.

    1. There is no such thing as Aryan Invasion/Migration. Indeed, either we are ALL Aryans (muslims included) or none of us are Aryans.
    2. Access to education is actually governed by financial and social considerations, whether a family can afford to send their children school or not is the biggest consideration, which is why schemes like mid day meal are a big success.
    3. Function of reservation is to consolidate votes. If the reservation was intended to address inequities in the society, it would have addressed the financial and social backwardness issues, instead, reservation is only done on the basis of caste.
    4. Reservation does indeed hurt the middle class, because the middle class needs jobs. Reservation, which is anti-merit, takes away jobs just because the person is of the wrong caste. Thus, far from addressing social inequities, reservation actually discriminates against the middle class. Hardly the hallmark of a democracy.

    Muslims never ruled 800 yrs, they ruled parts of India, on an average half of this India for about 500 yrs. Do you say whole muslims have to suffer for the misdeeds of one Syed A Khan? Anyway, if India is a secular and democratic nation run under the present constitution, it has to adopt affirmative action. Otherwise, how would you remove the present systematic social oppresion, suppresion or discrimination? Are you happy with the present morally corrupt society? How would India aspire to become superpower keeping 1/5th of population slave? Under Muslim rule, hindus (brahmins) fluorished, but those who were half hindu (lower class) embraced islam for social dignity. But as the power remained with brahmins, these new muslims were kept oppressed till today.

    About eighty percent of this article justifies reservations for the former rulers of Islamic India and about ten percent of it says that the former Islamic rulers of India should not take the reservation. About ten percent of it is about bashing the people of India who did not succumb to arabization. Something tells me that Zia would have turned out to be a better person if he had stuck to his childhood principle that he wouldn’t read the Koran because it did not have any colorful pictures. He says

    “There is, in our Constitution, a clear promise for reservations on the basis of “backwardness”.”

    Backwardness of mind can’t be cured by reservation nor can it be used to extort undeserved special benefits to a particular religious community who were the former rulers of India. If “material backwardness” is the criteria for reservation, then I am all for it. Then we don’t need a religious or caste based reservation. I would have had more respect for Zia if he had made that case since that would cover all materially backward people including Muslims without injecting religious poison into reservation just like Zia is trying to do here but to who’s benefit I wonder….

    Cricket club managers in Hyderabad complained that talented Muslim boys are being ignored for selection of Under-14 and Under 17 teams. They should know that this is not communal discrimination – there are sports agents these days who, in exchange of a fee, guarantee the inclusion of a talented player in any team. There are hundreds of job placement agencies whose task it is to find placements in exchange of fee or commission. So, finally, its all about money exchanging hands, right from a child being admitted in a school to his/her employment after education. Moneyed people can play the game of life, right from education, health, employment to investing in any business. Those who do not have the money, regardless of community, are left behind. And the Hindu society was never known to be an egalitarian one. Hence there is prevalence of discrimination against the weak, and therefore the need of discrimination for – if our country is a welfare state too, apart from being a practically casteist Hindu state.

Unfortunately the arabized in non Arab societies have become a tool for this kind of disgusting intellectual theft.

    Talking about article of faith, cultism is an article of faith in Arab Islam. That’s the reason why Islam teaches you to see the world in two. One is a Muslim and the other is a kafir. Your forefathers Hinduism doesn’t teach you think in that bigoted way. You seem to have conveniently forgotten the murders, robbery, rape and slave owning commited by the “messenger of god” and his band of thugs. Arab society had some merit before islam. After mohamad and his islam, its all moral darkness for them. I can understand that you have to justify arabization and the Arab cult because not doing so would negate the whole life you have led so far. In Islam, there is no way out. Once you are in, you are in even if you want to leave. I pity your state.

    ur hinduism is money minting bussines.we teach morality.hinduism cannot be called religion.as man is unequal at birth.it is more a system.

    By the way, would you prefer living as a Hindu in a Islamist cesspool like Pakistan? Maybe in your worst nightmare. Unfortunately in most Islamic society, bigotry is a way of life. Islam plays a part in this bigotry since the bigotry is justified by these islamist bigots by quoting from Mohamads Koran. It’s obviously not a very nice book if bigots of all strips find a lot of stuff in there to justify their actions.

    Hahahaha…tejinder, Krishna is not a real person. He is a character in a mythology. I set a trap for you and you fell right into it. By the way, it looks like arabization not only distorts history of real world but it also distorts the mythical world of mythology. Funny man!

    Well, Sachar report says affirmative action has benifitted greatly to SCs and STs. So why not to poor muslims? They don’t need Hajj subsidy. Sachar report found that only 3% muslim children goes to madrassas, Only poor muslims send their children, because it is completely free and but serves at least two purposes, a low paid job of priest/imam and the religious knowledge to keep the islamic tradition. Jiziya tax is a normal tax to an able non-muslim like a muslim pays the tax (Zakat). Only the names are different. Tax citizens pay everywhere. So don’t put some absurd arguments. Muslims are striving, but need some govt. support.

    “I fail to understand why, if reservation is good for Dalits, is it bad for Muslims”

    Who can argue with that? Is that your “winning” argument?

    I also failed to understand why, if reservation is good for Muslims, is it bad for all nonmuslims. After all, a significant section of people from the muslim religious group divided the country on religious lines in 1947 resulting in that Islamist cesspool we now call Pakistan which has become a headache not only for India but for the whole world.

    That’s my winning argument.

    reservation should be provided to weaker section whether muslim or non muslim.u cannot keep a part of bharat mata paralysed.everthless muslims are also indian.why so much hate.

    in up w are 18.5%.our representation in patwari/lekhpal is only .6%same in other services.if we will be part of system we will have feeling of ownership with system ,which will enhance patriotism.

    jews are our cousins brhmn are like brothers.i hate brhmnsm and zoinism.these are satanic anti-god thought hurting the people.
    they want to built ram mandit in ayodhya.what it actually means.
    it means .to ignite war between shaivite and vaishanvitesayodhya is headquarter of shaivaties.
    historically shaivites killed vaishanvites in his areaa and vica versa.
    these 2 satanic forces follow shaitan not bhagwan.i expose them.
    see how zoinists ruined iraq afghanistan libya
    and india before.

    Let all of us really join together to produce real food for eating and then living is meaningful, after all more and more mouths are added day by day whether one like it or not. No point in wasting time on dry issues, for that illogical discussions may cause some Sabarmati express problems but realistic approach will be real Narmada river of life of perennial sustenance.
    Life is in body if there is food to eat. No use of dry talks and irrational philosophizing. Life is to be lived meaningfully. It is no use of talk and growth without real food items on plate please.
    So politicians are warned that they should not play with lives of people of any community/ies for that will backfire very every one of them.

    so many right things said by the prostitutes. this profession should become legal because if these prostitutes are banned so many girl life will fall in danger. these people control crime that is called RAPE. if they are not exist or banned the mens will become giant and too many rapes will be commit.
