I followed up on this. Hindus were indeed violent sometimes. But from all their deeds, a few noticeable facts seem to stand out.

They have been fighting to keep islam away from their land for about 600 years.And they have succeeded. They are still the majority in their land. They fight to keep their rights. The temple of their most important God Rama was destroyed by the mughal occupiers and a mosque was built on the site. Did the hindus think it was politically incorrect to do anything about it now? NO. They razed it to the ground in 1992 and want their temple built there now. What is wrong here? What would the muslims have done in the hindu shoes ?? Can you imagine?

Richard Lion Heart seems to have a very valid point here. The Hindus take their religion as an integral part of their lives. This could also be a reason why they were successful in fighting islam.

I believe that the hindus have had experience in dealing with muslims. The west should follow the trends and practices from the hindus before it is too late for us. 600 years of experience is a hell of a lot of experience.

God bless the west !!!!
