Quotes

"A person who made a Facebook post after a murder should be booked. It shows that he could have a role in the murder plan. It is abominable to congratulate killers" state BJP president V Muraleedharan has been quoted as saying
...It seems almost ludicrous today , but Duke’s first bylaws declared that the school must "assert a faith in the eternal union of knowledge and religion set forth in the character of Jesus Christ." If you’ve ever wondered why we have a massive chapel smack in the middle of campus, there’s the answer
Khine Khine Soe, a director at the ministry, said: "The 60 million population figure was only an estimate. We estimated birth and death rates. We did not include the 'migration out' [of the country] in our estimation. The current census results that we have announced do not include international migration. So, the population was 60 million until it was announced yesterday. But, the [former] census may be wrong. However, we need to take this 51.4 million as a definite total. We will get the data for the people living abroad by May 2015."
According to official literature: "Scientology is a religion that offers a precise path leading to a complete and certain understanding of one's true spiritual nature and one's relationship to self, family, groups, Mankind, all life forms, the material universe, the spiritual universe and the Supreme Being."
