in response to reader comment: Mr. Pipes is correct: Learn from the Indian Tragedy

This is in response to Mr.Shariar's comments. I apologize to Mr. Pipes for using his article comment feature to respond to Mr.Shariar's statements

Before we let the above named gentleman lecture me about the knowledge of history, he should know that the so called Aryan Invasion theory of India is a myth, another invention by the liberal press to prove that India should never assert the rights of the hindus as a native people. Mr. Shariar could do well than lecturing me on the secular Indian constitution by actually doing the same to the other dozen islamic theocracies/dictatorships around the world.

Mr. Shariar's comments are the typical statements one can expect from the muslim community in my country defending any rights of theirs or crying down the rights of the Hindus. It is very easy for Mr.Shariar to demand secularism in my nation, when it is a hindu majority country.

However his brethen conveniently seem to forget the rights of other minorities the moment they come to power. Before you demonise Mr.Modi (not Moody) for not protecting muslims, do you know the extent of the purging of minorities which went on in Pakistan and Bangladesh? Where were the kind benevolent muslims who lent a helping hand to the ostracrized and oppressed minorties (hindus and christians) who have almost been exterminated in their countries?

Forget Pakistan, look at Darfur, where more of your benevolent african muslims are being slaughtered by other truer arab muslims ? Do you still think that anyone who reads these comments are going to believe the "Islam means peace" propaganda? Yes, the caste system was evil and extremely revolting, yet the hindus are doing their utmost to eradicate it. Do not even begin about the glory islam brought India, India's downfall as a civilisation not concidentally began at the same time.


In India, a muslim is entitled to marry two wives, he need not pay alimony after he divorces any of them and (hold your breath!) a muslim can divorce his wife by just uttering the word Talaq thrice. A recent divorce was conducted over a cellphone (talk about using the right technology for wrong purposes)

This can be held as the ultimate example of how muslims disproportionately skew the laws to their benefit, to the detriment of all other religions. No doubt, the U.S and Europe could end up the same way, if the leftist-liberal-media betrays their nations to islamic extremistism. As for Mr.Shariar, he can take comments elsewhere as we are not fools.
