Hypocrisy just got BIGGER

Reader comment on item: The Burqa Wars
in response to reader comment: Gulatis naivete will be very costly

You always harp about your great Hindu culture.

In reality you have two sets of cultures !

a very convenient public facade
- where the woman is treated with great respect
- a land of spirituality & tolerance and openness.

the actual reality which is always hidden from the outside world
- where girls are killed in the womb wherever posssible
- women are beaten, abused, raped and forced into submission
- conveniently exterminated if they refuse.

Talibanisation just 50 kms from Delhi the Indian capital

Death pills for wayward daughters

Women who choose their partners labelled as whores

These are just a few links from one of the most reputed Indian newspapers.

My society has its share of crazy and quixotic people but yours is equally worse. There things just differently labelled purdah becomes ghoonghat etc etc. We don't burn our women for dowry or kill the girl child unlike yours. Any person can enter our places of worship. In many cases the so called lower castes still find it difficult to enter your places of worship laws notwithstanding. We do have our share of people who kill others in the name of religion. You do the same thing, gangraping nuns and murdering priests of other faiths and yet pretend to be secular.

The only difference between me and you being the degree of hypocrisy. You are just BIGGER hypocrites !

Now you may be different from the rest of your country cousins. So am I and many others like me.
