This time everything is OK, no news about this incident gone viral, not a single headline appeared on media, I don't know why? May be it was not such a big incident. Lets ask about the intensity of the incident to his parents for whom Dilawar was the only son. No inquiry, no investigation, no statment, no debate, Isn't that the prejudice? 
Where are all social media activists and bloggers? 
Please raise your voice?
