The Saffronites are those who have burnt the flag of our Nation and they are the disciples of Savarkar who pitifully pleaded clemency from the Britishers. The BJP ruled Haryana State has named an airport after a Sangh Pariwar member after removing the name of Bhagat singh. Such unpatriotic R.S.S. need not give a certificate of to us.
