Yesterday, on 10th of August 2017, a mammoth gathering happened in Mumbai. In the gathering, there were 6 Lakh Hindus gathered in the Economic Capital of the nation, Mumbai. They were Maratha- Hindus and were demanding their reservation in the state. Now, it is not whether we support their demand or not or may be their demand is legit or not, it is all about the way they protested.
It was a gathering of 6 Lakh Marathas. Yes, they belong to that Great Maratha community which ended the Mughal era in India. Though our History books never told us that truth and we were always taught that they were Britishers which ended the Mughal regime. They have the blood of Veer Shivaji running in their blood and waging a war is a child’s play for them.
They chose Azad Maidan for their protest. Azad Maidan has a history behind it. Azad Maidan has seen the nightmare of riots in the same month five years back, i.e. 2nd August 2012.
Just check some of the images how Hindus Demanded their Right:

Such a massive gathering and not a single incident of violence. Even the celebs couldn’t able to control themselves:

While in the riot that Azad Maidan has seen in 2012 there were just 50,000 Muslims. They all gathered to protest against the riots that were happening in Myanmar between Buddhists and Muslims. But those small numbers couldn’t able to hold themselves and started thrashing Indians, started demolishing Indian Public Properties, and they didn’t even spare Amar Jawan Jyoti.
Well, this is the actual difference between Hindus and Muslims. And still Muslims are scared of Hindus in India and there is a rise in intolerance against them.
