What about Nazification of Hindutva?

"This is precisely what Hitler and Nazis were doing once they gained power after democratic elctions in Germany . Just change GM's "if Muslim citizen demand legal status for sharia " with Nazi citizens demand full legal status for Hitler worship, legal persecution of Jews, breaking of international laws for the glory of Germany and so on."

Vijay has to first define his version of democracy. If democracy and especially electoral democracy means voice and choice of the people, with safeguards for minorities, people should have all the freedom in the world to come to their own consensus. No a priori judgments can imposed without constant referral to people's choices. A provision, no doubt, has to be made for the nation states to fit into wider international system of democracy. However, if the system is hijacked, either nation-state level or international level by a small minority, havoc sets in. Hitler had manipulated his minority into a majority and the result was all of us to see and caution. A similar minority has hijacked Indian democracy and is bent on imposing a ‘5000 thousand year old' ( as compared to 7th century Islam, as derogatedly pointed out by Vijay) on India. The result could be sheer chaos.

Similarly, Bush and neo-con, a woeful minority and a contrived legal majority had hijacked US and its international resources for a very small minority's vested interests. The result is bound to be disastrous.

"In other words, GM is demanding that 7th century Arab tribal code be introduced 'democrarically' in non-Muslim countries and non-Muslim countries should open their doors to unimpeded Muslim migration and multiplication at the expense of state."

Vijay cannot hope to win his argument by merely demonizing Islam as ‘Arab tribal code'. It is for Muslims to decide how they value their religion. Muslim demands for Sharia law in counties and countries wherever their votes legally permit such provision, cannot be summarily rejected without due process of laws and institution. If a country is non-Muslim, in the sense, it is secular, it cannot automatically be assumed to be a Christian or Jewish or Hindu country. Immigration in this globalised age is mercifully not determined on racial, religious or ethnic basis. The criteria keep changing for each and every individual country or region. It is the economy at the moment that rules the roost.

There are instances where unjustified and arbitrary discriminations have seriously restricted immigration for one group or another. Countervailing compulsions sometimes do correct such anomalies. However, the dominant group is bound to resort to all manner of restrictions to perpetuate its dominance. In the US, the Anglo-Saxons and their Jewish supporters, constantly work towards isolating the US as their exclusive domain. The economic factors militate against such uneconomic discriminations.

Vijay laments "to unimpeded Muslim migration and multiplication at the expense of state."

One is at a loss to figure out which state Vijay alludes to – the US or India, when he resents Muslim migration and multiplication at the ‘expense of state'. Both nation-states are powerful enough to take care of their best interests. They can and have stopped and constantly regulated migrations according to their national needs and interests. Vijay is only projecting his own prejudice against Muslims while showing as if the US and/or India is being unreasonably under pressure to allow Muslim migration or multiplication. In fact, Vijay thinks a Jewish website gives him some privileges to demonize Islam and Muslims. At least I am not impressed with such fly by night brotherhood between Zionists and Hindu extremists, whose leaders like Golwalkar, Savarkar were ardent admirers of Hitler and his fascism and have widely borrowed from Hitler and Mussolini to write their original treatises which form the very foundation of RSS, VHP philosophy of state and governance.
