Who is stopping you from giving facts? And yes, you have a right to your opinions too, no matter how opinionated they make you appear in reality. You want to teach Hinduism in the 'correct' light from the jihadi perspective, fine, go ahead! What happened to all the Muslims who were 80% of the Indian population? What is the source of your statistics? --And did they reconvert to Hinduism, or what? They became apostates, and have lived to tell the tale and thrived despite doing so? What happened to the Islamic population bomb?

-- If what you aver is true, well, there is a lot of hope for the world, surrounded as we are by a sea of Islamic jihad, wave upon wave all over the world, simply going by India's shinning example! What an easy solution!!! All they have to do in Europe, America, Russia, China and Australia, is to give the Islamists separate homelands like Pakistan and Bangladesh, and then fight a war to the finish, to remove the Islamist scourge from their midst without compunction or illusion! Better than the savage bombings and beheadings on a daily basis, not knowing where and how the next attack will come.

The problem with jihad thus far, in modern times, has been that it has been riding piggyback for too long on Western support, with Western connivance in fact --especially given the extent of media support, and this has created delusions of grandeur that are not based on reality! Your weapons, your communications technology, all derives from the Western dole! You don't have the ideology, the scientific temper, or the civilisational wherewithal that can make you stand alone and progress even in your evil jihadi designs. What I'm saying here is not any kind of a personal agenda, it is all out there for the world to see and to understand! Now that the Islamofascists are fully exposed in all their barbarism, talking your hate spiel against Brahmins or Shivaji (Shivraj!) will not take you very far. The West that succumbed to your evil propaganda was ignorant of facts. What is happening now, is simply that instead of taking your word for what is right and wrong out there, the world is taking a hard look at the phenomenon of jihad and its advocates! The Brahmins of India will survive, they don't need anybody's help in a free world! And we are so proud of our ancient Aryan-Sanskrit-Vedic heritage, which is wholly indigenous to the Indian soil, and did not exist anywhere else in the world in its true glory, Black, White, Grey or Brown! But what about you?

To answer your specific allegations about Hinduism, you think it is a set of fables, why, that makes it very unique, simple, free, open to interpretation and beautiful. Infinitely superior to the rigidly vicious doctrines preached by the Koran (see faithfreedom.org, if you haven't done so already).

As for the Brahmins, yes, all the world loves to hate them, because they served so well to preserve genuinely open and exalted Vedic-Aryan philosophy that is at the core of Hinduism against both the jihadis and missionaries-evangelists! 'Finish the Brahmins first, and you have finished Hinduism', is the current hate-filled logic of those who peddle the anti-Brahmin disinformation with such vested interest. But the Brahmins are a lovely, erudite, sophisticated, intelligent and harmless group of people, and they can never be isolated in India!

The Islamists, on the other hand, have gone all out on the rotten limb that bears them aloft, and the total crash is coming sooner than you know! The disinformation against Brahmins is wearing thin now, based on pure fiction and fantasy as it is! It was the Brahmin reformists -- right, left and centre -- who have transformed Hinduism in keeping with a changing world, and it is fast emerging from the horrible influence of Islamic jihad for nearly 1000 years! You can't permanently fight the light of truth with calumny and slander, you know?

Hindus, Brahmins or Indians are not really bound to reply for every dastardly inhuman act in their midst in a fairly desperate world facing the barbarity of Islamism in its midst! Every society has its traditional injustices and worse! We are being patient here, accomodative, even appearing to bend over backwards at times in the international forums, in the face of utter ignorance coming from people who have never cared to inform themselves about the world! This situation will not last very long. You will get your reply, Tez Dhar, from the ground level!

I am in daily touch with Indian Muslims, some of whom are close friends, and privately, many of them are beginning to reveal that they were upper caste, Brahmin converts, (if only to preserve their estates from the jihadi invaders), privately maintaining a fairly egalitarian, sophisticated lifestyle in keeping with the evolving modern, humanist strains! At this stage its a private joke, but in time, they will lead the quiet revolution back to a future of gentle fables and humour, away from the savagery of mideaval tribal lore that has outlived its usefulness for the growing middle ground of moderate Muslims in India! They will find themselves in the Brahmin embrace soon, if not already there!

Malegaon is producing very interesting voices now, and I'm keeping my ears open, free from the harmful influence of conditioned, xenophobic and subversive jihadi tirades! Just as well that the Muslims in Gujarat and Malegaon itself are leading the protests against Pakistan, a clamour that will grow in future. It is my prediction that Indian Muslims will begin lynching the anti-Indian jihadis in their midst one by one. Watch this space.

And one thing: I have nothing against you, brother. I only wish you will take off the blinkers of jihadi brainwashing and learn to see the world as it is, free of all the superior-inferior racist / jihadi ideology that is corrupting you from within. The world is a happy, joyous place, not at all like you imagine from your constricted perspective. All the jihad in the world is like a little twitch in the annals of a very long history. We are making real progress, real advance in human values and living, despite your worst efforts. Look at the haunting 9/11 images once again -- if this is the vision of the future that Islam has to offer to the world, you will have yourself to blame for what comes next -- for East or West, this is not our vision for the future! We have had enough of your divisive, hate-filled ways in the name of jihad. Not gonna continue for too long, this much I can promise you. Wake up!
