Namaste, Raju

Reader comment on item: A Rapid and Harsh Turn against Israel
in response to reader comment: If you believe even a single word of the Muslims, then I have some real estate I'd like to sell you.

Hello, Raju -- Namaste!

Having seen the violent passions of die-hard Muslims first hand, I am sympathetic to your concerns. HOWEVER, I must caution you against such broad strokes. My children have very close friends in a Bangladeshi family, and they are very liberal, and while Say'd is a bit moire conservative than his wife, they are adorable Bengali Americans. I cannot attribute to them your concerns.

And I have known people who grew up in India before the Partition, and they knew Muslims who are among the most kind-hearted, egalitarian,and generous people that my friends ever knew.

Bottom line: Not all are to be painted t be painted with with such broadstrokes.

If you are indeed Indian, reflect back on Akbar -- the greatest ruler of Indian history. He accomplished more than any of HIS non-Mughal predecessors

Good night for now!
