stupid one sided movie
25 July 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

why was godhra deaths not shown?the movie should have begun with the live burning of godhra people...also its a lopsided view....boring view...as always a coward Hindu director makes a movie on Muslims being killed...statistics show 30 percent Hindus were killed in the riots.......also please show how parts of aurangabad were inaccecible to Gujarati's....Muslims caused riots....all the time....since independence there were 233 documented riots in Gujarat...

show the other side of the coin too....these Muslims kill ......if a few get killed in return don't make martyrs out of them.....

his other film lamhaa is equally boring......again Kashmir is shown to be burning cos people want independence....why were all the Hindus thrown out of Pakistan,then Kashmir and now where.....into Indian ocean?
