India is not an islamic nation

Mr. Pipes

What you are saying is bang on target. But in your article you are portraying India as an Islamic nation. Please note that India has only 12.5% of it's population (enough to cause trouble though) as muslims. The protests and rallies in support of Bin Laden were carried out only by the radical muslims in support with our pseudo secular parties while the moderate ones sat tight at their homes. The rest of the population i.e hindus, christians etc. are with America in this fight throughout. ...

India is probably the only other nation which is in the same predicament as Israel, surrounded by enemies on all corners. If our government can ever grow out of it's minority appeasement thinking, India shall be in the forefront in the war against terror. We have faced it longer than you have and believe me we have effective methods for fighting a urban guerilla war.
