Arey dhimmi,

If you are really serious, why no comment by you in this article? www.outlookindia.com/news/article/New-Delhi-Lacks-Vision-on-Kashmir-Author-at-JLF/788051 It is nearer home and relevant. I am looking forward to discussing Rahul Pandita's book with anyone who has read it.

Looking back one sees umpteen examples when opposition leaders and especially Modi was unfairly targeted by ruling dispensation of Congress and their reputation were sought to be trashed through low level character assasination attempts. But there are four major reasons why what happened at Kaithal was wrong. First,  Hooda has been one of the most dignified and fair CM. He has never insulted or unfairly targeted his opponents. Second, difference between vote share of Congress and BJP in Haryana during last elections is not all that much, Third even a recent media poll shows Hooda as first choice of people and last hasn`t BJP come to power claiming that it will change the public discourse for the better!

>>Ultimately, project Hindutva is a monster that will eat its own children as project Islamism is doing to it own

Eat its own nominal parents? Surely average Hindus and Muslims are not children of the monstrous Islamism or Hindutva.

Democracy is the ultimate coalition. It is Revolution by Evolution.

Consequently it is never static in it's composing constituents-even their definitions.

As democracy deepens, the idea of 'coalition' and 'live and let live' develops strength.

The social dynamics in South Asia ( or Indian subcontinent) have been unique since it developed the Coalition Society through a natural process- the society which the propogators of Hindutva do not stop hailing as the best and keep on talking of the 'assimilative and absorptive characterisitc of Hinduism' ( sadly without understanding how oxymoronic it is to conflate Hindutva with Hinduism).

Ultimately, project Hindutva is a monster that will eat its own children as project Islamism is doing to it own

Saachbolo,

>> "I see islamic states and groups from Saudi Arabia to Pakistan to ISIS -- putting the literal meaning into action..."

This is an oversimplification. The states only pay lip service to religion while engaging in their state craft in the usual Machiavellian ways. Only the Talibans, ISIS, and sanghis do literalistic reading, although for different reasons.

>>  The point simply was why are Muslims less safe than Hindus in India.

You see this article as a proof that Muslims are less safe than Hindus in India? An Afghan, illegally residing in India, or a drunken fight between two acquaintances didn't stand out to you? The only thing you got from an article that doesn't even mention the word muslim is that muslims are somehow unsafe in India?

Can you ever see anything from a non-muslim perspective? Why does everything has to be about muslims with you?

D.L.Narayan, 

>> "Nothing is more assertive of religious supremacy than shouting from the rooftops (minarets) " La illah ila Allah, Muhammad rasool Allah" five times a day."

Only a hate-filled moron would bring in a religious rite to defend himself from the charge of gloating over the gruesome murders by a crazed maniac who calls himself 'Caliph'. You are beyond the pale!

>> "Today, nobody is burning widows, sacrificing humans or carrying out crusades."

Those are good examples of what misapplications of religions can do, irrespective of whether it was done yesterday or is being done today. Saying, "Look we are so much better than you now!" is a ridiculous response.

"Being in denial only worsens matters."

It is no good to say that terrorists 'do not have a religion'. This rubbish is propagated by the goddist media.

The truth is: ALL religionist terrorists are evil. Moslemist are the worst.

The decimation of the Congress is close ( unless BJP commits a blunder ). Happily for us, its end is near.

However, the leaders of the Congress are too arrogant and thick headed to see the writing on the wall.

What is more abominable than spreading anti-Muslim hate in a forum in which both Hindus and Muslims participate? But understanding that must be beyond you! ANWAAR, DALLAS, UNITED STATES

Nobody has the brains or intelligence as Anwaar has. He is very broad minded, as his fellow religionists are, and only the Sanghis are bad. hatred towards others is in the DNA of the muslims. Others have learnt hatred from them.

"Religions have been known to ispire even burning of widows and human sacrifice. Euroean Christians brought two extremely bloody crusades to Jerusalem."...Anwaar

Today, nobody is burning widows, sacrificing humans or carrying out crusades. 

What is relevant today are the activities of ISIS, Boko Haram, Al Qaeda, Lashkar e Toiba, Jaish e Muhammad, Indian Mujahideen, Tehreek e Taliban and many such radical Islamic groups. Extreme terrorism, beheadings, kidnappings, suicide bombings, forcible conversions, massacres are some of their favourite methods to achieve their objective of making the world a better place.

Instead of accepting that there is a massive problem confronting the world, you hark back to the crusades and various evils that are extinct. Being in denial only worsens matters.
