Jews were never prosecuted in India for 2000 Years

Reader comment on item: India, the Most Pro-Israel Country

Submitted by Manoj (Bahrain), Apr 27, 2009 at 09:33

This news is not surprising because India may be the only country in the world where Jews never faced any prosecution since the time they came to India as refugees thousands of years back. Jews prospered under the rule of many Hindu Kings and there are still many synagogues in Cochin; though most of the jews have migrated to Israel.

However this applies to only Indian Hindus. There are Indians of the communist, leftist, secularist,Muslim variety who rabidly hates Jews and they are of considerable numbers and influence. The ruling Congress party, Various Communist parties, and various secularist parties who all are hungry for Muslim votes are rabid Jew haters. It is only the Hindu party called BJP who supports the Jews.

Also Hindu organisations calles RSS, VHP and Shiv Sena supports the Jews because the Hindus and Jews face common enemies today.
