Dear Prasad,

We are fed up of being told that Hindus never initiate violence, they practice, Ahimsa ( non-violeance) etc. and yet you see only violence in india since independence. Hunders of thousands of Muslims have been massacred since then. You managed to burn 2000 thousand innocent muslims in Ahmedbad only because they were muslims, and muslims in far away Ghodra were said to have perpetuated train burning ( Many inquiries since then have shown that the train caught fire from inside, from the molotov cocktails stockpiled inside).

As muslims (victim everywhere in the violence) were branded by evangelical and islamophobic media in the west, you were excused. But I do not think your collaborators and supporters among the chrsistian evangelicals would stand by you when you say Hindus never initiated violence in Orissa where christians are massacred and hundreds of churches where burned down. Christians may now understand what Ahimsa really means.
