Mumbai's July 2011 blasts and Subramanian Swamy's hate-mongering

Here's a hindi version of my rejoinder-response to Subramanian Swamy's hate-mongering in the DNA, Mumbai. Thank you Sandeep Samwad for the prompt translation! - Babatdor Dkhar, a Lawyer and Founding Editor of Northeast Monologues on Swamy and his rants.

From the archives - Ram Jethmalani, himself no saint, on Subramanian Swamy - "diseased insect", "vicious viper", "gutter...his natural habitat".... lol - these 'bigwigs' and their writings! :)

Dear Mr. Sharma,

I really appreciate you voicing your opinion on this. I am actually shocked that DNA published this!

Keep up your good work and sorry about your back. Hope it gets well soon. We appreciate your commitment.

Take care
