An Appeal

Of course we are angry
And the anger is justified
Our government has let us down
Our intelligence seems anything but intelligent
And yes the Pakistan media is adding to the madness
Just like our politicians are by proving their incompetence with unfailing regularity
Terrorists are awful, they are animals
And they have no religion or nationality
So painting all Pakistanis with one brush is bizarre
The messages doing the rounds are sick
Saying muslims can’t be trusted is unfair
So guys lets channelise the anger in a constructive manner
Lets all be together in this
Let every Indian do something
Without feeling awkward or apologetic
Let Mumbai retain the cosmopolitan culture we are so proud of.

U absolutely right that Bombay should maintain the cosmopolitan way we live and not blame one particular religion. Terrorist don't belong to any religion their aim is only create terror in the world.
Islam doesn't teach to kill innocent people. no where in the world or any religion ,they say in war or fight never harm the women,kids & old.
So lets all stand up & stay united cause its these politicians & terrorist create the hatred in out hearts & mind.

Section 49-O of the Constitution:

Did you know that there is a system in our constitution, as per the 1969 act, in section "49-O" that a person can go to the polling booth, confirm his identity, get his finger marked and convey the presiding election officer that he doesn't want to vote anyone!

Yes such a feature is available, but obviously these seemingly notorious leaders have never disclosed it. This is called "49-O".

Why should you go and say "I VOTE NOBODY"... because, in a ward, if a candidate wins, say by 125 votes, and that particular ward has received "49-O" votes more than 125, then that polling will be cancelled and will have to be re-polled. Not only that, but the candidature of the contestants will be removed and they cannot contest the re-polling, since people had already expressed their decision on them. This would bring fear into parties and hence look for genuine candidates for their parties for election.. This would change the way, of our whole political system... it is seemingly surprising why the election commission has not revealed such a feature to the public....

Please spread this news to as many as you know... Seems to be a wonderful weapon against corrupt parties in India... show your power, expressing your desire not to vote for anybody, is even more powerful than voting... so don't miss your chance. So either vote, or vote not to vote (vote 49-O) and pass this info on...

So that we, the people of India, can really use this power to save our nation". Use your voting right for a better INDIA
