This is what Hindus have faced all along!

Hindus in India have faced this sort of Islamic blackmail all along. Those who oppose the 3 forms of Jihad that Dr.Pipes writes about are called "Hindu fundamentalists." Westerners have been calling Hindus opposed to Islamic violence and Communism as "Hindu fundamentalism" and have even tied up with the Communists in India (both liberals and conservatives are guilty of this).

Now that the West is itself under attack, it will be interesting to see the reaction. Will the West wake up and admit that Hindus have been under attack for centuries? Serge Trifkovic is one of the intellectuals who has written about Islamic terror in India. Read the extract from his book at http://www.frontpagemag.com/Articles/ReadArticle.asp?ID=4649 - Islam's Other Victims: India.

Today, India is a Dhimmi state with Hindu temples being robbed of revenues while Madrasas and Hajj pilgrimages are subsidized by the government. One state even went so far as to give 5% reservations to Muslims in jobs and university admissions (all this after Indian Muslims were given an entire country called Pakistan in 1947). The reason for Dhimmitude being official in India is that Muslims hold the country to ransom and threaten jihad if they are not paid the Jizya. Communists and Nehruvian-Stalinists are their allies. Those who oppose the Dhimmitude and want to remove these doles to Muslims and liberate Hindu temples are called "Hindu fundamentalists."

Western press and academia needs to wake up and stop branding Hindus as "Hindu fundamentalists."After all, Hindus too deserve freedom and equality. Why should we pay the Jizya?
