It doesnot need a high IQ to realize the attiude you have and the name you chose (jairam) to express your opposition.
"Firstly, from your comments it's quite clear that you are not familiar with the Indian situation. Christians distribute hateful literature about Hinduism amongst people to gain converts"
Well since you seemed more educated on this topic, why don't you mention some of the "hateful litersture" the Christians use against Hinduism to deserve torture, rape and killings? Mention some please!
You only need to look at the chick publications that the christians are distributing. Such manufactured lies that are designed to create violence between people.
Then the Christians must be stupid! I surrounded by an ocean of millions of zealot hindus, to write such literature must be insanity..but hold on!, is not their "evil agenda" to harvest "innocet hindu souls?" why would then they design something that would bring blood on their heads? wow the Christains in India (or the "Vatican" must be so stupid!
"Secularism in India is being used to christianise and Islamise India. I'm not justifying violence but what else do you expect in this situation."
Indian democracy is an old institution and India aas been under the "Christian British" for almsot 300 years, but the percenatge of Christians in India is merely 1-3%. We don't see India being Christianized. Islamized may be, but not Christianized!
"Hindus feel cornered from everywhere by the voracious appetite for souls that christianity and Islam have."
Yes, Christianity is there to spread the message of Christ and make disciples in his name. Not by sword ofcourse. Sorry if your religion is not like that and is meant to stay in doors only (within India). If you think your religion has Salvation, why don't you harvest souls for your religion all over the world? what is stopping you?
"the Roman catholic Italian leader of the ruling "secular" party issued a christian cross on Indian currency"
Are you saying that there is a Cross on the Indian notes? let me know if that is what you are saying. If done why blame the Italian man? why not blame who allowed him to do that? and why not ask a good question to the Italian man as to why the Indian people need the symbol of the Cross on their notes?
"They don't dare to convert any Indian muslims because they know will have no success with them"
Even Muslims are invited to accept Christ as their saviour. There is a big mission even in the heart of the Islamic world but doesnot come out in the media, to reasons known only the authorites..
