"The caste system was an open system based on pure merit"

So kindly explain to the rest of us what an 'Untouchable' is.

... Still waiting for evidence of this string of Muslim men whom Diana dated. Just two? I suggest that you look up the word 'serial' in an English dictionary. Unless you imagine that Will Carling, Oliver Hoare, James Hewitt are Muslim.

Cerebral damage?... You tried to buy off the Muslims by giving them half of your county yet you still have 140 million of them within your borders (more than double the entire population of the UK)! Way to go!

Thank you though for your advice on combatting terror. We obviously have a great deal to learn from you as the following data illustrates. Perhaps you could send us some 'Hindu Kshatriyas'?

  • Oct 1, 2001 - Militants attack Jammu-Kashmir assembly complex, killing about 35.
  • Dec 13, 2001 - Attack on the parliament complex in New Delhi.
  • September 2002 - Militants attack the Akshardham temple in Gujarat, killing 31.
  • May 14, 2003 - Militants attack an army camp near Jammu, killing more than 30, including women and children.
  • Aug 25, 2003 - Simultaneous car bombs kill about 60 in the Mumbai.
  • Aug 15, 2004 - Bomb explodes in Assam, killing 16 people, mostly school children.
  • Oct 29, 2005 - Sixty-six people in New Delhi.
  • Mar 7, 2006 - At least 21 people killed in three synchronized attacks in Varanasi.
  • Jul 11, 2006 - At least 200 people killed in a series of 7 train bombing during the evening rush hour near Bombay

    Presumably you can produce a comparable list for the UK covering the same 5 year period?

    PS. While the sun was rising, then setting on the British Empire my ancestors were all toiling on their farms in Ireland so hiding behind your inference of 'colonial guilt' doesn't cut it with me. That 'blood guilt' doesn't extend to any of my ancestors unless you regard skin colour as sufficient cause for blame. Fortunately the majority of those in my particular ethnic group are more interested with the present and the future rather than blaming the past for our failures.

    like I said elsewhere, a little bit of education never harmed anyone!"
