Noting Indian responses

Reader comment on item: Musharraf's Historic Speech

Submitted by Zee (United States), Sep 23, 2005 at 10:38

I have noticed, not surprisingly, a lot of Indian nationalists burning reading about the positive moves made by Musharraf towards diffusing Muslim/Jewish tentions. Let not be fooled everyone. The Indian government has recently admitted to a large scale massacre of Sikhs who want an independant Khalistan. Not a day goes by when you don't hear of hindu nationalists beating, burning, forcefully reconverting, and killing Christians and Dalits in India. Actually, India is a hotbed for anti-Christian violence and this trend has been excalating each year. Terrorist groups like Bajrang Dal roam unchecked and literally command millions of followers throughout India. If someone really wants the facts, google through the news sources and you will see crime after crime committed against minorities in India. Are we forgetting the Tsunami where the dalits of Tamil Nadu were denied aid because of the ethnicity imposed on them for centuuries by self-proclaimed brahmins?

One Indian here actually mentioned Kashmiris to bolster his case against radical Muslim. I challenge people to read the Human Rights Watch reports relevant to Kashmir. Whatever the bodycount of Hindu Kashmiris, the bodycount of Muslim Kashmiri unarmed combatants is at the very minimum 3-4 times that total. These aren't facts that are determined by partisan think tanks, but unbiased Rights reports from internationally recognized agencies who specialize in such matters.

Ask yourself this, why is it that 7 states in India have strong secession sentiments? Only one of those states is Muslim (Kashmir). ...
