PM Modi's tweet was crisp: <em>"Shocked at the shootout in Orlando, USA. My thoughts & prayers are with the bereaved families and the injured." </em> In a way, it sends out the message that it was the loss of lives that mattered, without going into sexual orientations. I wish that same emotion applied back home: that sexual preferences do not a patriotic citizen make. More to the point, sexual preferences do not a criminal make.
