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.
