When will Chennai bring in anti-conversion laws like that Hindutva terror hub Bengaluru? Looks like Hindu terror groups in Bengaluru are oblivious to the mass conversions being done by ISKON, Hare Krishna in Europe and America. India is a pathetic miserable country where a cow's life is more valuable than humans. Cows are gods, but women are raped, tortured and molested. Cow dung is sacred in India.

Raghavendran R it isn't as safe as you think it is. There has been a steady rise in robberies.

Chennai is by far the safest city in India.
Things happens in big cities but the control is much higher in chennai.
Hope things will not be the same and will be more safer going forward
