Who was Ramalingam ?
Ramalingam was a local Pattali Makkal Katchi (PMK) leader of Kumbakonam in Thanjavur district. He was also a staunch Hindu. He was brutally killed by Muslim fanatics on 5th February. He had just questioned some Muslim clerics attempt to convert Dalit Hindus. This murder has again showed the biased nature of Indian national media. Had a Muslim killed in this gruesome manner, that would have become national news. It is also interesting to note that Ramalingam had many Muslim friends. His Facebook profile is replete with images and posts that he has shared showing many of his close Muslim friends. But, when he raised question against conversion of Hindus, his hands were chopped off. He bleed profusely leading to unfortunate ending of his life. A muslim can never be a true friend of a Hindu.
