Huh missed the churches ? And all those protestantidiots who heal ? Racist media !

Call them Muslims. You guys are fkin louts..

Thank God this is not happening in India. WSJ, NYT, Wapo and the likes would be smearing Hindus in a heartbeat. Look how muted & respectful they are in this case. please show the same restrain & respect when reporting on India/Hindus. Or is that too much to ask

Faith groups & pilgrims 😂😂 They are so scared to call a spade a spade

Faith groups? Nice try to hide the fact that they are muslim 'faith groups'

They didn't wait for the Indian authorities to give them official information before calling Hindu riots against Muslim minorities in Delhi riots... biasedwikipedia biasedmedia Biased Media

- why are you not calling a spade a spade. Faith groups are Muslims and they're the biggest carriers of CV. No wonder you're called Fake News in America

These media houses will feel scared when calling out Hindutva, gaumutra... Or anything related to Hindus or Hinduism.. But when Islam is the main problem... They will never DARE TO take their Religion name.. they will.say .. it is islamaphobia what HYPOCRITES...

HinduAmericans “Religious Gatherings?”NO! Vile, Barbaric, Backwards, Crazy, !slam.

HinduAmericans Not faith groups. Islam the most peaceful religion in the world!!!

Faith groups in Iran means Muslims GET THAT RIGHT

Uh oh

Social grouping and close personal contact linked to cultural and religious behaviors are hard to change

Maybe useful information for most of us ?

Region will save us 😠

Don’t forget the USAs religious nutjjobs insistence on people attending services
