There are violent Hindus no doubt about it, but your slack list of things blamed on Hindus are squewered at best. For example LTTE in Srilanka had high ranking Christians and their cause was never about religion, it was about insurgency and an aim for a seperate independant homeland for Tamils regardless if they were Hindu or not.

Your comments were incredibly onesided ... There are not 6,000 dowry deaths in Delhi every month! Seriously that city would be in population decline and there would be no women left. There is an awful number of some 5,000 dowry deaths every year in all India and they are not confined to Hindus alone. All the violent insurgencies are two way street and it is not just involving Hindus. 20% of the country is not Hindu you know. Vacant claims of 5,000 year genocide borders on sheer fantasy!
Exaggeration does not serve your agenda well so called ex-hindu.

There are violent things that some Hindus have done, but get it into context and perspective. What you tried to claim is not going to wash.
