I received this message on my facbook page. The sender is a young Hindu woman. I have deleted her name :

Sir, today I really need your help and advice.
Sir maine ABVP join kiya kyunki desh seva ka bhoot sawaar tha Hindutva ka naheen.
Last night I posted an update on facebook about my conversation with an extremist Hindu neighbour.
As long as someone is praising his religion it's fine but the moment he starts degrading another religion only to prove superiority of his own religion, it becomes intolerable.
I shared my opinion on Ram Rajya. In my opinion it was not ideal.
I said 3 main points:
1. May be Shri Ram was an ideal son, ruler or person but he was not an ideal husband because he asked Ma Sita to prove her purity by giving "Agni Pariksha".
2. When Sugriva challenged his brother Vali for a fight, Vali came out to meet his challenge. At that time Rama shot him from behind a tree. Was this fair ?
3. I do not think Lakshman Ji cutting nose (disrespecting) of Ravan's sister Suparnakha only because she was attracted to him, was proper.
4. Why was Shambhook killed by Rama ? Just because he was a shudra ?
In the end of my post I added a note that I expressed my opinion based on facts and my personal knowledge, I don't want to hurt anyone's religious sentiments.
Sir, don't I have write to express such opinions?
However, since then I am continuously getting threatening calls and msgs from extremist Hindus. They called me dogla Hindu, Musalman and even said you should use khan as your surname. My post was misinterpreted and many people wrongly spread that I was promoting love jihad. Even one guy commented on my post that parishad ki karyakrta ho isliye bachi ho koi aur hota toh shayad haath kaat dete.
Many people only to gather support of hindu extremists in student Union election threatened to file a suit against me.
I know section 66 A gives us citizen freedom to express our opinion on social network sites though we should be responsible.
I didn't criticise any religion but expressed some doubts. I don't know why Abvp is so upset? They instantly removed me from their group on whatsapp saying parishad ek vichardhara hai aur jo iss vichardhara ke viruddha hain unhe iss group mein koi jagah naheen.
For three years I worked in ABVP. I fought with everyone who said abvp is an organization of Hindu extremists, today I think there is a need to review my view point.
When I posted my update I knew many people might not agree with my opinion and it's their right.
I did not know that one facebook update expressing my opinion on idealism of Ram Rajya will suddenly change my life and people around me.
Sir, please give your valuable opinion.
