May Allah make these chinese goons suffer Hell Fire in this world and the next.Aameen.

No wonder the saffron goon modi is soft pedalling on the chinese issue over the border. he has built detention centres all over the country to imprison Muslims through the draconic CAA/NRC/NPR legislation.

Luckily for Indian Muslims, Allah sent Corona to save them. Otherwise, by now most of the Muslims would have been shut in these detention centres.

May Allah make these saffron goons suffer Hell Fire in this world and the next.Aameen.
