in response to reader comment: Gross stereotypes

Submitted by Winston Smith (India), Dec 19, 2009 at 10:17

SB: so what do you propose? things that happened 500 or even more way back years ago should compel you to hate 'THEM' today? ok, so i am a sterotype! i dont follow your line of thinking, so i am 'downplaying the risk of radical islam'. tell me wats you solution to the problem of radical islam? you propose to HATE 'THEM' - your reasons? a) Gandhi encouraged them in 1920 b) THEY have been attacking YOUR country for past 1000 years - so you should hate them, deplore them - this will solve what ever problems there exist because of radical islam. please dont let the dead people rule your sensibilities and clot your judgements. yes, i propose a simple solution to the problem - better governance and land reforms - yes they sound funny :) nobody cares for people who have no food to eat and shelter to dwell all they do care is their duties towards some prehistoric entitlements that they draw upon themseleves by chance! so if you deplore radical islamists by saying they pose a danger to the world, you are equally radical in your views towards them. you hate them, they hate you - both of you propose the same solution; eliminate the other, dear friend, whats the difference between you and them? lets seek a solution... without any entitlements
