in response to reader comment: Hindus have comminted crime against Sheduled castes in India

I strongly believe that people like you are the reason India has never been able to come out of the Islamic yoke till now. People like you go around spitting venom at Hinduism at every given instance especially in the West to look really cool. Admitted that Hindus have done wrong with the dalits but will in no way justify the attrocities committed by Muslims in India, which are mostly whitewashed by "secular" minded Indian's and in in my guess are well qualified to be one.

Casteism is one of the biggest blots on Hinduism but rather than standing up and opposing it, many Hindus like you would rather live in the west and talk crap about tolerance of Hindus. Taking cues from you most Muslms and westerners continously ridicule Hinduism as a religion based on casteism, idol worship and abusing women.

So many intellectuals in the west talk authoritatavely about Hinduism that many a times Hindus themselves start feeling ashamed of being Hindus. But Islam is out of bounds for everybody and speciic texts/doctrines that seem nice are portrayed to show Islam as a tolerant religion, while the "terror" part of Islam are deliberately covered up. I haven't come across a single Muslim ever saying that anything wrong has ever been done in Islam's 1400 years of murderous, terrorizing history but as soon as Hinduism comes up, I find people like you joining your Islamic counterparts in demeaning Hinduism.

There is nothing in Hinduism that can't be fixed or refuted to fix the problem of casteism as many reformers have been trying but I would be glad if you could point out one geniune Islamic reformer who has ever tried to reform Islam and not been branded an apostate. The problem of South Asia as well as the world is totally based in Islam but till people don't stand up and recognize it, it will never be fixed. Apologists will keep on claiming how Islam is the religion of peace and verses are being misinterpreted.
