Well well, interesting ... . I was merely trying to point out that followers of Islam are not the only ones who have used violence to achieve their goals. As stayed historically, Christians were some of the most barbaric in their quest to convert non believers. You mention Mexico and South America as being the only place Christianity was forced on the natives, naive and ignores the rest of the world. There is plenty of examples where Christianity was forced on natives, often using violence. http://www.christianity-revealed.com/cr/files/converttochristianityordie.html

Oh, I don't come from India by the way, I am Scottish born and bred! However you mention the Hindus being massacred by the Muslims, this is true, but in context the Muslims were also massacred by the Hindus, Sikhs and Christians so what's your point? http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_massacres_in_India

So, according to your opinion, all bad deeds carried out by non Muslims are the fault of Muslims generally, how bigoted is that! "The sad truth is the Spaniards did learn all of the above from Muslims that invaded Spain and the truth is non of this comes from Christain teachings" just as The Bible does not teach violence neither does the Qur'an. " as such this illustrates my point, there is no bad religion, just bad people who practice it! For all the violence committed in the name of religion be it Christianity, Islam or whatever, this does not reflect the teachings in the respective holy books!
