Western Civilisation is based not just on Judeo Christian Morality

Reader comment on item: When Conservatives Argue about Islam
in response to reader comment: Hindus and Greeks both polytheists

Submitted by Singha (India), Jul 17, 2007 at 12:08

Renaissance in the west was accompanied by the west reverting to Greek and Roman heritage. Democracy for example in the west is basically a Greek Constuct - not a Judeo-Christian one. Renaissance impacted both the Jews and Christians.

Dont know how you perceived my hatred of mono-theism. Many of the Hindu groups are monotheistic.

What I advocate is a genuine tranformation in the Islamic world and how India can play a meaningful role in the process.
