The Ancient Times

Because we’re journalists, we’re impatient. We want to gather the news as quickly as possible, using any technological resource available. And when we’re as sure of the story as we can be, we want to share it immediately, in whatever way reaches the most people. The Internet didn’t plant these ideas in our heads. We’ve always been this way.

    These people are terrorists in the name of jihadis. They follow ISIS hardcore religious mindset and want to make the whole nation Islamic. We have seen it in Delhi and Kerala. Such trouble makers causing damage to public property in the name of religion must be shot dead. No other action is required.

    The mistake was done by the guy who posted it first and he has to be arrested first and second thing is , why other group of people doing riots and damaging public properties, instead they have to go to court or contact police and can ask them to arrest the guy who has posted that thing. This is not at all good.
