Are Christian lives the only lives with any worth?

Reader comment on item: [Pakistani Christians and] A War Against What?

Submitted by R. Srinivas (United States), Oct 4, 2002 at 16:05

I just have to wonder about your focus on Christian and Jewish lives.
The day before the Christian lives were taken in Pakistan, Islamist
terrorists went on a rampage in neighboring India killing over 30 Hindus
in one massacre. There is not a day that goes by without Kashmiris
(Hindus and Muslims) killed by Islamist terrorists armed, financed
and organized by the same Islamist government of Pakistan.

There were tens of millions of Hindus in the land of today's Pakistan
before 1947. Today there are fewer Hindus there than Christians.
Every wonder why?

You have strangely chosen to remain silent on this. Does this mean
that Hindu lives have no value at all? Are Christian and Jewish lives the
only lives that are worth remembering and speaking about?

I have had a number of comments along these lines in response to this article. Two points: 1. I am writing mainly for a Western audience. 2. I plan to write about militant Islamic violence in Kashmir.
