"North Indians love to violate law. Do you agree?"

Over at the Times of India, a newspaper I hold in the cheapest regard, the Resident Editor of the Lucknow edition wants to know if people agree with Delhi Lt Governor's statement "North Indians love to violate law."

My comment to this editor:

Are you mad, sir? Do you have the slightest bit of common sense, or do you insist on proving time and again that the Times of India is another tabloid, no better than toilet paper and more soiled if truth be told? Khanna spoke out of turn, but you, sir should know better than to misquote his statements, turn it around and present it in black and while and ask people to give their useless opinions on it. And what will you do with such opinions? Publish them with graphs and charts and show that such and such community "loves to violates laws" on the basis of people's nonsensical opinions and personal biases? And what will that prove, other than give national importance to a statement that should have merited a footnote at best? You, sir, are an imbecile for running such silly opinion polls.

I do agree with that statement.
Although it's unfair to say all north indians are like that.

I for one, am terrified to go anywhere north of Bombay. Scared of the people and the way they behave, through personal experiences i have had.

Now these north indians have even invaded Bangalore and are turning it into a miserable city:(
