"Musalman ka kam shivling pujna ni h shami allah se tauba kar thode se hinduo ko khus karne k liye allah naraj na kar warna barbad ho jayega [Shami, the job of a Muslim is not to pray to Lord Shiva, be scared of Allah. Just to keep a few Hindus happy, do not enrage Allah or you will be destroyed]," said another.
