Was it really an Indian restaurant. Many Porkies name their establishments with Indian names in UK, US and Canada. These Pukistanis are ashamed of their identity and hide under the garb of Indians to avoid shame.

Very sad, the violence is on the raise all over the globe. How and why the people lost humanity and act without any civic sense is puzzling.
