in response to reader comment: Do Hindus hate Jews?

Submitted by amrita (India), Sep 21, 2008 at 10:30

I am Indian and hindu. NEVER EVER HAVE I HEARD THAT HINDUS WANT TO KILL ALL NON HINDUS. wherefrom did u get this idea? Hindus dont convert ppl to their religion and just are frustrated that christians come here and pay poor ppl to convert. Abt the "low caste" hindu who wanted to convert an scapeto hindu, most indians( including me) want to immigrate to western countries in the hope of a better life financially. THIS IS TRUE OF MOST POOR COUNTRIES I guess.

Maybe muslim poor countries dont want ths because they are so anti American culture, they wldnt even want to settle there , whether it be for better financial prospects. I dont know wherefromugot ur idea, but India is the only country where jews have never been persecuted. In fact, since hindus are taught to leave all otherreligions alone, WE ARE NOT GOINGTO BE REWARDED WITH A STINT IN HEAVEN AS IN OTHER RELIGIONS FOR CONVERTING NON BELIEVERS TO HINDUISM. honestly tell me, u ever met a hinduwho triedto preach his/ her religion and encouraged u to convert? And the caste system? It was and still remains more a CLASS SYSTEM.

I am not a brahmin, I have no wish to convert to christianity because I am not dirt poor and with an education and God's blesings, expect to do good in life. Request you to seriously read up on Hindus nad hinduism befre u think they hate allother religion, semitic or whatever. You wear ur traditional jewish dress? U keep along beard? INDIANSHAVE NO CLUE ABT JEWISH CULTURE. U REALLY MUST HAVE LOOKED LIKE AN ALIEN TO THE INDIANS AROUND U. THEY CERTAINLY DIDNT HATE YOU.
