Muslim Brotherhood in Prashant's India

Reader comment on item: A Century of the Muslim Brotherhood

Dear Prashant,

Since my last post I've done some research on contemporary India. I believe I now I have some understand of current events in you beloved original homeland (India). But unfortunately, I can only imagine what role the Muslim Bretherin play in it.

India. the world's most populous country (along with China) has about 1.3-1.4 Billion people - and 200 Million are Muslim; the majority are Hindu. After World War II India, Pakistan (including East Pakistan, now Bangladesh) split off because the Muslims did not want to be part of Hindu India. Now Muslim majority Pakistan has nuclear weapons; and so does India.

In addition, around Kashmir. there is a dispute over Sovereignty between India and Pakistan.

We know that Muhammad smashed the 360 idols in Mecca and made everyone believe in the One God - Allah. What people do not know in the West is that India, under Hinduism is at a minimum tolerant of Polytheism (to put it mildly). And Islam, essentially, maintains that Polytheists are to be killed (or am I mistaken?).

Generally speaking, no non-Muslim Monotheist advocates the killing or murder of Polytheist - murder is a crime all over the world, and a capitol offense, but not so in Islam. Ask this question: what would happen to a Pakistani in Pakistan if he killed a Hindu?

In summary, it appears that Islam and Hinduism are fundamentally incompatible. In a general sense, Muslims only tolerate - as second class citizens (Dhimmis) Jews, Christians, and Zoroastrians. This is so unfortunate. So for an outsider, it looks like the choice is between the Bad and the Worse. Therefore, I choose Hindu Nationalism, and I support Modi as the Prime Minister of India! Of course, I'm not a Citizen - so my choice is purely intellectual, and from the political scholarly point of view. The ultimate solution is Religious Toleration; but historically, Hindus are more Tolerant (having many Deities) than the Muslims whose Prophet smashed all the 360 Deities at Mecca in the 7th before his hordes march to North India to do the same there and thereby split the population there into Indians, Pakistanis, and Bangladeshis.
