To the dumb yank Kevin lol Indians are the Most successful group in America !!And commit the least crime .also ,to the uneducated tool ..India is one of the most complicated regions on earth who only 70 years ago was pillaged and tortured beyond belief.funny ,that India is home to cities like Bangalore that was voted the most dynamic city in the world as well as gurgoan ,Noida,and shimla And places like south Delhi where estate prices run higher than New York all of which are extremely developed not to mention Indias highly advanced developed medical industry And technological hubs ..the yank talks about filth silly man every visited Chandigarh or north east India ?! Or the beautiful regions of the Himalayas ..?!she rose from the ashes and continue to do so after massacre after massacre after loot and after after rape after rape on her soil ..her tolerance of never having had any anti semetism ,being home to the second largest Muslim population giving a roof to serval persecuted groups being the root of the rig Veda abs all its glorious knowledge as well as the Indus civilisation ..India isn't ONE country it is many and America !?dont get me started whether it's gunning down innocent Sikhs ,or rampant islamophobia or the dirty shit holes of Detroit or the high crime rate or its government being one of the most evil killing millions /displacing of Muslim women and children ..America is not only a divisive shit hole it's pure evil one which conditions the 'Kevin's ' of the world to speak such venom about other regions one which keeps people stupid and asleep to the actual world and how complex everything is ..you talk of filth ??you talk of America ??!

Hmm... How many years after Independence did it take for India to become so filthy? Like a child who doesn't know any better, the country wallows in its own excretia, literally.
Now, open rape on the buses occurs in full view of other passengers who do nothing to help.What? That pangs of anarchy and a disconnect that is a reversion away from structured society. How long before a complete return to animal behavior?
Does anyone wonnder why so many of we Americans don't want any more immigration here? We look on as country after country keeps up a mass Exodus to abandon there homeland and live off the achievements of our American forefathers. How long before we become a society of similar decay? Don't laugh, that's exactly the kind of denial that over time has led to so many third world countries to the hopeless and inexcusable situation that they find themselves.
And don't try to rationalize by saying we're a country of immigrants! We have had an open door policy for year after year, decade after decade, century after century. But nothing is good in the extreme. Yes, man must be governed and so should todays approach to alien migration in the USA. Why did it take terrorism and the loss of so many lives to finally wake us up? And that arousal is still incomplete.
What's it going to take to wake you up?
I hear India is wonderful this time of year. Why don't you take your wife and daughters for an Indian bus ride? Or save the cost of the trip and go on the subways of N.Y.C.? You say it's not that bad yet? Just wait and keep on letting all those who won't fix their own countries migrate here. And don't even get me started on the illegals....

Delhi is not at all safe. On earlier occasion somebody snatched gold chain forcefully from my wife. I personally reported the matter to R.K.Puram Police Station, the then SHO don't want to register my complaint simply stating that we will find out the culprit. On 17th June, 2016 our house was ransacked after breaking the entrance door forcefully. The police team visited the spot to do some investigation. Simply giving the FIR report will not solve the purpose. All the security forces are meant for VIPs/VVIPs in Delhi and not for the common man. God alone knows how long the common citizen should suffer from such incidents.
#Kuldeep on Jun 01, 2016 :
The Punjabis who migrated from Pakistan are the real problem in Delhi. To start with Delhi's cleansing We have to throw them out first.
#Sunil on Mar 27, 2016 :
Some people try to hide there shame by saying that "people committing crime in Delhi are outsiders like Biharis, UP'ittes n Haryanvis". This shows how useless, coward are delhiites that people from other state come n easily commit crime n goes away n U stay n watch like hizzddas.

Delhi is not safe ...n m from north... Hard core stats are here to prove it....gujjar, jat all think gunda gardi is wat dey aim for in life ...
#Ayesha on Dec 13, 2015 :
Delhi is not a safe place. My friend was walking alone on the street during evening and he was robbed by 3 guys with knifes. He somehow managed to escape by running but they got hold of his house key. This is ridiculous. Delhi govt. should soon form an app where public can type out the crimes they face or see and massive actions to be taken against them. The app should be checked regularly. Its now seen that coming to India is like inviting your death risk.
#piyush arora on Oct 13, 2015 :
The local citizens (proper resident,born of delhi) are not bad.The outsiders are criminals.Mostly Criminals are belong from bihar and Uttar pradesh,which belong from criminal background. The peoples of delhi are educated,while from mostly people from village like from bihar and Uttar predesh are criminials. First of all we have to throw biharis and ups out of our capital of India.
#Ronny on Jun 23, 2015 :

#satish on Jun 14, 2015 :
Delhi or any other place is safe as long as netas are not disturbing police.
#Eshaan Paliwal on May 30, 2015 :
delhi is not a safe place especially on the outskirts the people will always look a bit scary and criminal minded
#Arnab on May 17, 2015 :
Delhi is not at all a safe place.I lived in Delhi for 1 year but I could see the mentality of people.Criminal mind mentality.
#Lilly on Mar 03, 2015 :
Delhi is infamous for crimes against women. Also called rape capital of India. Mumbai (and Maharashtra) is comparatively the safest city in India. Also southern states are safer than the norther part of the country
#gupta ji on Feb 24, 2015 :
Delhi is safe only when if you are good with everyone and someone don't have any personal grudges against you. but mentality in Delhi for girls is same as in all over India.
#Deepak Ranjan on Dec 24, 2014 :
Delhi is one of the safest place in India however the incidents delhi are highlighted very much which happens in other cities also which I believe is good, Being the Indian capital the media is also playing very good role in highlighting small as well as big incidents and are well reported.

I other cities, crime takes place but people gets afraid to report it....
#Deepika on Sep 15, 2014 :
As a woman, I feel extremely safe in Delhi. Although crime does occur, this occurs in all cities around the world. But absolutely love Delhi and its nightlife!
