Reader comment on item: Musharraf's Historic Speech
in response to reader comment: Do Hindus hate Jews?

Submitted by Truth (United States), Aug 8, 2009 at 20:15

The Jews came to India after the Jewish temple was destroyed by the Romans in 70
A.D. and the Jews were kicked out of their homeland. In the book - Who are the Jews of India? -(University of California Press, 2000), Nathan Katz says that
India is the only country where the Jews were not persecuted. The Indian chapter is one of the happiest of the Jewish Diaspora. Both Christians and Jews have existed in
Hindu India for centuries without being persecuted. Christianity came to India with St. Thomas in the first century A.D.

Zoroastrians from Persia came to India in the 7th century to flee Islamic
conquest. They are known as Parsees in India. The Parsees lived in India without a sense of having been persecuted through the centuries
