Why has killing become so cheap in some part of the country today. What has the girl done to deserve this. Was it a crime for her to come and sell in the market place?
It seems that killing human beings has become cheaper than the prices of food items for some people.
May God help us in this country. Really there is problem in our country. We all have to join hand together in prayers. Only God can intervene and rescue all of us from the hands of the wicked ones. This could happen to anyone.
