Ooh-Aah2 Obit: More Muslim intolerance? (589* d) RE: Obit: More Muslim intolerence? 20 Nov 04


Carol, Carol, Carol. I'm starting to think you must be a bit thick.

(1) Praying for armageddon is a harmless thing to do. Killing people isn't. Again only a tiny minority of Christians would condone this anyway.

(2) Hindus are not Pagans, unless you are a Christian using that word to put them down. Religious riots and looting and the bloody communal hysteria which goes with them (I've seen them)are quite a different kettle of fish in both motive and method from cold-blooded martyrdoms, suicide bombings, assassinations, the favourite tools of Muslim extremists. It's true that Hinduism has become radicalised over the last few decades; the far-right Hindus cleverly use a well of hatred left from Muslim (Mughal) rule of India, and is strongest in Maharashtra where the Muslims attempted to put down Hindu rebellions with great cruelty.
To my knowledge none of the thousands of Hindus living in the West has ever killed anyone for religious motives; westerners have written books criticising the caste system and the apalling treatment of women in India without recieving any death threats, Fatwahs etc.
The treatment of Muslims in India is infinetely better than the treatment of religious minorities in neighbouring Muslim Pakistan; perhaps this is because India is a democracy whereas the number of Muslim democracies is extraordinarily small.
