Antulay may have been let off the hook but he has done enough damage.
He has not only emberassed the UPA but has actually put the moderate Muslims on the defensive at a time when both the communities have been at their best behaviour during the Mumbai terror crisis.
What has A ntulay acheived,one may ask?
Nothing except that he has made a fool of himself at an age of 80 when actually he should be playing with his grand-children and telling them stories about India's secularism.
Most of the Pakistani news Papers carried headline articles of our Antulay?He has given a first class tool to NDA with which it is going to hit UPA hard.
He has cleverly put UPA in such a spot that instead of sacking him,Home Minister had to give a statement in Parliament sying "wrong and deeply regrettable".
Time will tell if ,marginalised,Antulay will gain in the forthcoming elections due to his adventure.Surely, India has lost face on the world stage.
Moral of the story,, don't have useless people around only to get votes,, it can actually harm the establishment.India now votes only for development,proper delivery assurances,candidates and not parties.
General elections are not far .
Let us see
let us CHANGE INDIA for INDIA OF TOMORROW
