Reader comment on item: Musharraf's Historic Speech
in response to reader comment: Do Hindus hate Jews?

Submitted by DHIRAJ SINGH (Australia), Jul 2, 2006 at 08:41

HEY man i'm a hindu and i dont hate jews....most hindus in india will not even know what a jew is because of the low level of education and what you said about people looking at you wierdly ...man in india if you are from a foreign country everyones stares at you.you might think its out of disgust or hate but its because its not everyday that they see some one like you...

i live in south africa and when i go home people stare at me too. as for musharaf ...i want you to go to pakistan and claim that you are a jew from israel...you'll probably be killed or beaten...you simply can't survive there if you aren't muslim and im not against islam. i respect it as well very much. Jews arent even a major cause for reflection in india because not many people know about them outside urban areas....AND THERE ARE JEWS IN INDIA...MUMBAI HAS THE LARGEST SYNAGOGUE IN THE SUB CONTINENT....and india is a democracy and there are severe laws against racism.

.the only religion that may be a cause of friction with the hindus in India is islam and that is only in isolated pockets...one of the hotspots is AHMEDABAD and thats where you went and considering you had a beard and a jewish hat on probably made you look like a muslim to the other racist hindus and thus the misbehaviour...my advice for next time...land in Dehli or Mumbai...BUT THE BIGGEST FACT IS I'M A HINDU AND NONE OF MY FAMILY MEMBERS OR FRIENDS HAVE ANYTHING AGAINST JEWS AND THIS INCLUDES MY EXTENDED FAMILY....my advice is check your facts and spread love not hate brother.

ps dont mid my short cut words and bad spelling and grammar its not a bloody english exam...haha...peace
