Ignorance of Indian middleclass

Reader comment on item: Sheikh Obama and His Two Wars
in response to reader comment: Sheikh Gandhi, Nehru and UPA in India

Submitted by Winston Smith (India), Dec 12, 2009 at 14:42

It sad to see kamekish repeat the rehtoric that so many indian middle class cajole themselves with. Ghandhi, Nehru are responsible for the 'plight' of India. Had Nehru not ruled the country and had Gandhi had not been subservient to Muslims back then, their India might not have been divided! This is a thought which is systematically injected into the middle class elite of which majority are from the upper caste communities.

kamekish is content into thinking what he was taught to believe - that Muslims are outsiders in India who attacked this beautiful country which primarily belonged to Hindus. This is a thought that finds a popular consensus amongst most India upper caste Hindus.

Saying - "Muslims are killing or have been killed on the name of Allah and counting has reached 240 million" or "His soft approaches towards Muslim are creating more terrorists in America than diminish them." highlights the fact that kamekis's comments should not be taken seriously as he is just venting his angst of adhering to entitlements laid upon him by his religion or caste. he is a poor little chap only trying to please his hindu mind by categorizing the whole Muslim community as terrorists!

things that would really help afganistan and pakistan (also india) are good governance accompanied by land reforms. two very simple things but most difficult to find! rest of the whole religious noise is all worthless..
