    In countries like Pakistan where mindless cluster of people live and dangerously selfish politicians rule them it is possible to let masses destroy their own becons of light but I am very surprised to see such incidents happening in politically awake country like India. History tells us that many majorities has changed to minorities so it a lesson for majorities of today to set good example and rules so that tomorrow when they become minority they shuold have safe heaven.
