Respected Proud Indian,

You wrote"Have you heard about the vatican ordering a beheading of a nun who chooses to leave the ministry or chooses to marry or pursue a " live in" relationship ?? "

I am unable to under stand that why at first place this was written by you, because this again supports me that christians are having very barbaric attitude towards their women, whether they are Nuns or not. Dont's & do's have been forced upon Nuns & other women e.g. see any women in west wearing nothing, or showing their curves in public, why?

Is it called modernity or returning back to ages of stone, from where we were driven out by these Religions, either Islam, Christianity, Judaism, or Hinduism etc. Kindly have a deep sigh and have a lookover the entire scenarios, how women is being sold now by you all in the name of Modernity, etc in the advertisements, games. Previously women were being forced to do sex under threat, coercion or due to abject poverty, but what is the condition of women in western society now, they are still being sold at all places but in a new package,called modernity, liberation, women's lib etc.

West's men are still holding the power of controlling women by duping them with juicy slogan that women had been liberated. You have only one glass fitted over your eyes. i.e. to hate Islam & Muslims hence you all have closed eyes towards your own dangerous evil, you people will never see all this evil creeping into your own house, because you all are actually male chauvinists & Muslim haters.

Although you adopted pen name as Proud Indian but you appear to be an kid Indian, because Kerala is not the world, what is happening in bigger scenario in west from where all this is coming is important than a Keralan remote example. More so this does not reply my query, none of you had given direct reply that why at first place Nuns are being asked to wear head scarves in west, except abusing Islam & Muslims. I think you have not travelled beyond Bangluru, where you live.

Now certainly you people realise that it is not only your right to raise questions about faith & practices etc. others have also equal right to do so. If you are asking questions then remain ready to face questions however they may be unsettling. If you people dont believe in ideeology of equal rights then dont preach us to observe that, you have no right to preach unless you bring your own house in order.

Dont feel ashamed upon being shown dark chapter of your own house. It is also to be bore in mind that you people are not better human being than others. How you people got the impression that you can ask any absurd question, raise any controversy, hurl abuses, float false stories, manufacture ghost about a particular section of World society, & no one will question your wisdom, moral right, conduct, authority to raise those questions. Following quotation can aptly be quoted here for all of you,

" Those who live in glass houses never throw stones upon others"
