True colors of India. Really?

Reader comment on item: Strange Sex Stories from the Muslim World
in response to reader comment: India and its dark secrets

Submitted by Prashant (United States), Aug 11, 2011 at 00:42

Dear Dr Pipes,

Your reader Naushad Omar cited economic bondage, untouchability and sex slaves as "India's dark secrets". In his effort to defend Islam, Naushad has become desparate. Crimes happen in every society and India is no exception but the difference is that in India a crime is called a crime. All the three activities cited by Naushad are illegal in India and not many modern Indians justify these activities by relying on a ancient book. We do not justify our past ills under a religious garb. So try something else Naushad. Something substantial.
