Indian Muslims are entrusted to us by Abdulhamid.” After over 10 hours, Amitabh Bachchan yielded to the micro-blogging site and his first tweet gave a befitting reaction to what happened. “Express not just in words the existence of one ; not everyone has the capability to say what they understand and feel,” wrote Big B.
