I have a question for everyone, how did our Prophet (PBUH) reacted when he was confronted by cheap and derogatory slurs by his opposition ? Then compare your thoughts and actions with that

Dam hai toh US se wapas aajao.

Good that voice is raised. But i see many people from chanchalguda, dabeerpura are driving trucks in USA and many people always dreams of going USA. Bahut log apne bachon ko bhi bhej dete hain. Agar dum hai toh wapas aajao aur apne bachon ko bhi wapas bulao. Kya apne ko zaroori hai us hukoomat ka rizq khana jo tauheen kare islam ki?
