India is a very tolerant country. And we Indians are warm-hearted people with heart of gold. Right?
Wrong! With each passing day, we are knowingly or unknowingly becoming more and more intolerant about teeny tiny things. Don’t believe us? Here is the latest one.
Do you know honorable BJP MLA from Guna, Madhya Pradesh seemingly got offended by the fact that Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma tied the knot in Italy and not in India? So what if he has given his life for Indian cricket!
“Virat has earned money and fame in India and he went to Italy to get married. Bhagwan Ram got married on this land, Bhagwan Krishna got married on this land and this man went to Italy to get married. He cannot be a rashtra bhakt [patriot],” India Today quoted Panna Lal Shakya, BJP MLA from Guna, as saying.
Beware yourself next time when out for a pizza bite!
