Of the battle

    Soon after the BJP came to power, [Pramod Mahajan] told me: "See, you're a Muslim, you'll be apprehensive. But I'll tell you something. After Mumbai, I feel this rioting is pointless. Muslims kill five, the Hindus kill 5,000! How is it an equal battle?" ... I liked Pramod Mahajan.
