Just beware of this type duble face of hindu like dhruv rahthi ….Working for Left wing like Ravish kumar ..And these ppl not mean to be trust . They wil defame hindu religion and will never go against islam becz they have fear of islamic extremist .
Proud of you dhruv rathee you are doing a great job. Jats always make our nation proud whether it is in army or games or any other field. Thumbs up. Some are writing fake comments about you those modi-fied bhats. But we know it deeply… keep going
Criticism is necessory for a better democracy .So crticise government .But these fucking guys start giving statement against hinduism. BC jihad ke naam par kata jata hai uske baare me bhi bole kabhi himmat hi nahi hai .dar lagta hai kahin fatwa na jaari kar de .so doglabaaji na kare sabke baare me khul kar bole bhi jo crime hai o crime hai fir o bjp kare ya congress kare ya fir koi maulana
Great job keep going 👍
Obviously the truth will always support the truth
, But anyway quarrelsome people will always bring chaos.
This person named dhrubo sathi is a genuine whoreson. Always gives biased and misinformations.

He is a baised blogger..dont follow him
He is a serial liar ,and sells fake news you can search ‘dhruv rathee exposed ‘on you tube , and you will get videos in which they tell the truth and compare it with the fake news told by him..
Yeah! You can search for stupid content of you wanna waste your internet. Bitch!!!!
You are doing a great job mate. Keep it up. This is that phase in india, when most of the people just want to follow what is being shown to them. Everytime some logical question is asked the focus changes to hindu- muslim rage. The only policy they are adopting is to say a line so convincingly and so many times that it becomes a truth. So, great job by exposing them. We are with you
Hi, just a few days ago I started to watch your videos…when continuously one page coming in my fb Dhruve Rathee ….but really I like your videos and after watching 4-5 videos I understand your opinion for political parties…..keep it up
Main thing is in a very young age you are able to understand the things….I read many people are not your supporter … it’s ok …its normal…. lastly I would like to say one thing that u said in an interview that don’t follow party but follow people …means if person is good then vote him….but
After all he is member of that party …it doesn’t matter if he or she is personally good because they have to follow them their rules and regulations….God bless you.
Sir I need your help
He is the hard follower of kejriwal ravish kumar he like the political party AAP and news chanel NDTV and news paper The wire As everyone knows he belongs to those shoes criticize only only hinduism.
I saw some video on youtube he is a anti hindu which is not acceptable. Bhakto ko ye galiya deta hau aur jo sare aam qatal karte hai jo internationally antankwadi ghoshit hai unhe ye pyar karta hai
I dont know may be converted to islm or sell himself for money to encourage islam jo duniya bhar me badnam hai
Second thing m nt bhakat or something

Jake puch kashmiri pandito se unka dard. Scoundrel
All the best . We are having a great opposition in him. I appriciate him for this . Its BJP time so its our liability of common sense to understand in opposition of whose question should be raised , who should be checked on . He always gives a hard reality check to ruling party & thats y bakht dont like him . All the best boy . When opposition died a 100 dead u r the last hope for citizens
Those who r saying against dhriv u must understand that dhriv takes a neutral point (except when it come to Kejriwal). As far as jihad is concerned it’s because of a political reason. Just like BJP says Hindu khatre mein hai, similarly terrorists who r brainwashed that Muslim khatre mein hai. Every person who is leading religion r not themselves follower of the religion they know as Karl Marx said “Religion is the opium of masses”. Everyone who is in power is deceiving the general population to stay in power. Just remember this my friends “Emotions cloud reason” and “Atoms r easier to break than prejudices”. Love to all people who r the citizens of this world.😊
See I read some comments with cuss words but see hindu mughlo Britishers ke time main itne khatre main nahi the jitne modi aur congress ke raaj main hain this hindu kathre mein hain is a distraction from real issues like economy and unemployment
I really shocked and surprised how come a man of just 24years is such a talented.I’m actually from southern part of India and didn’t know hindi well but to watch dhruv’s videos I’m improvising my skills in Hindi.Dhruv is really inspirational to the people like us.
doing great work criticism is the soul of democracy no matter who’s in the rule,lekin kuch andhbakht ye nhi samjhenge, desh ko dhruv jese aur bahot se log chahiye, isse phle k yaha ka bhi north korea wala hashr kre godi bakht
Yes you are right
Dhruv jaise nahi anshul saxena jaise
Well done sir, Ur work is going ….keep it up…..blessings from kashmir

Shame on this traitor Rathee. When innocent hindu sanyasis are lynched in palghar , it becomes a fun fact for you? You will realise the true pain when some one in your family meets the same fate.
Bhakts mad#rch0ds now saying Rathee as traitor. Lol then who are they. Remember mercy petition signing man the real gaddar veer sorryworker of rss jumla. 😂
Learn history mf bhakts. Do some more research.

Ye banda is total againest of hindusim, because he wants to join bjp with a big deal so he spread fake news against BJP. I know that all political party are courpted but i choose BJP because less courpted and in support of hindu. I kow opposition is necessary for govt but not religion. BJP fallow RSS because it is hindustan and RSS want to stabilise tample and hindusim in india it is good for our society. Our country is not want jihad people, so try to covinience Muslim to leve our country peacefully.
Keep it up sir . Good job sir. I always with you and your thoughts.
Keep it up sir . 💯
Good job sir.
I always with you and your thoughts. 🙏🙏
Dhruv is doing a wonderful job
Dear Dhruv Rathi, I have seen many videos. You are doing great job. in many videos you have given facts and figures that how this government is looting the public and cleaning all banks cash and Reserve Bank of India. Congress has printed Rs 12,40,000 crore in 70 years and this government has printed more than 17,00,000 crore in 7 years. and that is without any increase in GDP growth. With RBI information you can make this video.. Dhruv Rathi
