I do not know what you by "hindu nationalist". I am a hindu and a nationalist. War are not always wrong. The true stories of "Bhagwad (and not bhagwan) Gita" represent the victory of justice and there is nothing like Lord Krishna waging a war against those who didn't believe in him, for that matter he had to side against his own mentors who respected him.

It was just a matter of injustice accorded to brothers for which they fought. Infact Lord never took part in the war martially. Consider this as opposed to what mohammed did. I needn't even mention how much idols did he break, how many worship places of pagans did he demolished whereas there was not any such issue at that time when what is written in Gita took place. Mr. farhad there was not any other sect or religion for which war took place.

As for caste system it is not there in the religion to the best of my knowledge, although unlike your rigid stand about cruelties like slavery, wife beating and lying i n islam, i am open to the possibility i might be there in some text considered sacred but which are not divine. Your statement-"you could start by taking on the biggest democracy in the world" indicates you are against Democracy in favor of cruel and antiwomen Islamic theocracy.

If you do research on demography you will find all over the world ( including India) muslims have highest growth rate and poor literacy rate (as scriptures are considered the best and as an alternative to modern education, perhaps some muslims believe they can go to moon by the knowledge of Koran. Mohammed himself cut the moon!) This also contribute to poverty. For e.g in southern state of india, kerala muslim used to be a second largest minority an christian as largest, but as family planning programs, initiated by govenment, were followed only by Christian and hindus, musims emergd as largest minorites. Look at the example of Lebanon and Bangladesh example is a proof to my points. Here, muslims regardless of hunger and poverty are able to maintain staggering growth rate. And as usual majority muslim also persecute their hindu population. Abductions and rapes of minorities are natural to majority muslim population in most places.
