Are Mulayam & son really concerned about riot victims?

Mulayam Singh Yadav and his CM son Akhilesh Yadav, both self-proclaimed well-wishers of Muslims and the downtrodden, are busy with Madhuri Dixit, Salman Khan and other Bollywood jokers donating one crore to an unnecessarily hyped movie Dedh Ishqiya just because it was mainly shot in Sitapur, UP. How can people be so indifferent? In their state, Muslim riot victims are languishing in tents in severe, bone-piercing cold. Many of them died because of the inclement weather and here these cartoons are enjoying with actors and wasting taxpayers' money.

They say that when Rome was burning, emperor Nero was playing flute (though it's completely fabricated and apocryphal; Nero was at his palace in Anteem and was suffering from dysentery. It's one of the most popular fabrications in world history. Read ancient Roman historians Catallus and Agrium as well as the English historians, Sir Collingwood and Professor Sir Arnold Toynbee's versions of 'Burning of Rome').

Mulayam and his son have gone even a step further and are dancing with heartless and the most insensitive actors. Do these people have any sense of sympathy, let alone empathy, with the riot victims of Muzaffarnagar? Using a specific community (read Muslims) as a confirmed vote bank and forgetting them is something politicians know very well and on this count, not just Mulayam and Akhilesh but all are equally responsible.

Just after 26/11, the then CM of Maharashtra, Vilasrao Deshmukh went to have a look at hotel Taj along with his useless actor son and one of the most asinine directors of all time, Ram Gopal Verma. He'd to pay for his 'terror tourism' by losing his CM post. Politicians have no feelings for the masses and they live in the ivory-towers. Drag them out of their abodes and punish them in public.
