Wrong? Only that it's probably an under-statement

Reader comment on item: Counting Islamists
in response to reader comment: Something is surely wrong here!

As per Pipes' article, it's very difficult to attach one single number to answer the question of how many Muslims worldwide support militant Islam. If you wish to ask a different question regarding support in specific locations, then you may find that India's number may (emphasize, MAY) be lower than the global average. However, I'm absolutely confident that the numbers for places like Pakistan / Malaysia / Indonesia (all hotbeds of VIRULENT anti-Semitism) would be much higher. It's important to open your eyes. Though India has done a good job of accommodating differences among its inhabitants, there is still a percentage that is explicitly, and admantly, non-accommodating. And, since India has so many people, these percentages equate to large numbers of people. When the microscope is focused on other areas of the world, the picture quickly becomes much more dire. We must not allow the bleakness of the picture to lead us to deny its existence!
