"Hinduism didn't originate in India. It is a foreign religion. While your "head" has been "harvested" by this religion, directly or indirectly, why do you have negative feelings when you see your Indian brethren adopting Christianity? (Also a foreign religion to India)."

Considering the no-holds barred high-decible attack on Hindus by evangelists in India and abroad, it would be a surprise if Hindus were not seriously provoked! That too, with the Christians united in an evil axis with terrorists and their backers in India.

Snidely positing Hinduism as an alien invading religion, on par with the current insidious Christian advance is the worst form of theological chicanery. These tricks don't work in the long run, you know. Hindus are not cornered, they are not on the defensive, and will give a fitting reply to those who seek to undermine their way of life and their faith in their homeland!

...Don. Your arguments are hardly conducive to the mythical Christian values! Quite an exposition this, on your part.
