Hindus hate Jews??

Reader comment on item: Musharraf's Historic Speech

Submitted by pctrips (India), Sep 24, 2005 at 21:43

Dear Daniel
Your comments on terror war and consequent examination of Islams relationship with other faith always provide compelling reading material. I , being an Indian( a Hindu incidently, in context of your article but irrelevant otherwise) , was amused at what you wrote and readers reaction to your views on Musharraf's historic speech.

To say the least, I must say ...the shocking ignorance of west about the Pakistani establishment and Musharraf, who today leads it. The agile and artful commando of realpolitik that Musharraf has tranformed himself into since Sept 11 2001 will make a fascinating story but that's beside the question here.

What is important is to note that the change of heart diplayed by the Pak President before the World Jewry Coucil is one of the many tactical sommersaults he continuously performs before his western benefactors. Look at his track record during past four years. It is littered with lofty promises that he never intended to fulfill. He continues to nurture Jihadi's against India depite countless promises to the contrary.

... Indians and particularly record of Hindus in tolerance and accomodation of Jews has a history that is shining proof of centuries old values of our great culture. Let me assure all those like Ari Jacob that Hindus hate none because they are fundamentally incapable of hatred.

Nevertheless if Musharraf , even in empty promises that he makes under great duress, can persuade his establishment colleagues (Military Mullah fraternity of Pakistan) also to shed hatred of Jews as expected by you, it can serve as a great bridge towards and honest inter-faith dialogue. Still ,on Musharraf, I am one of the greatest optimists around today like you !!
