1. If you think I am racist because of attacking the person who attacked me first, then let me be so. I can't do anything about it, sorry.

- I understand. You are unable to accept responsibility for what you say. If I had a history of being humiliated every time I made a point in the manner that you have been I would probably feel the same way.

P.S. In India and the UK, the number 2 comes after 1. 3 comes after 2! You don't seem able to count 1,2,3!

3. You said you made fun of Ali-G. But I know how Hindus, their "(better) way of life" , their accents are ridiculed and mocked in the British media. Do you watch the kumar show? If you haven't watched it then you have missed the jokes of the century.

Yes, I've occasionally seen the Kumar Show. The house that the Kumars supposedly live in is within walking distance of my house. My Hindu friends also find it funny. Unfortunately, Muslims are not generally noted for their ability to self-deprecate themselves which suggests a deep-rooted sense of either inferiority or a persecution complex. This goes some way toward explaining why they have always been regarded as the least popular social group in this country.

4. You said Hindus are welcome in your societies. But then, why in some of his postings (there are many at this site at different boards) Dinesh moaned and groaned requesting the White race in the west not to discriminate against them?

I think it more accurate to say that Dinesh has been attacked by White Racists who have mistaken him for an Indian or Pakistani Muslim. Unfortunately, the average racist doesn't generally ask a potential victim to complete a questionaire specifying his religious affiliations so it is not that difficult to understand that a rabid white extremist might occasionally mistake a Hindu Indian for a Pakistani Muslim.

5. Finally, Sword, though I disagree with you on many points, I think you are doing absolutely the right thing by prefering Hindus to Muslims. If I had to choose a butler, I would have surely chosen one from the clan that served my ancestors loyally, rather than from the group that could never be tamed by forefathers.

Back to your racal slurs, eh? I don't think that you've ever disagreed with me! What generally happens is that you make a point that advertises your ignorance, I come along and shoot you down, and you move on to another topic as your ignorance is impossible to defend. To say that you 'disagree' would imply that you were able to justify an argument!

Butlers? Where I live there is a HUGE multi-ethnic community. Whites are actually marginally in the minority. The Hindus seem to be a great success story driving around in nice cars and living in nice houses. Any racism that takes place here is generally caused, or inspired by, the masses of Muslim Somali's & Pakistani's that just got off the boat. I don't think that the Hindu's would object that their Muslim brothers in the UK might regard them as 'Butlers' to the Whites, especially given that they are happy to be better paid and living to a far higher standard than their Muslim counterparts in this country ever could. Good luck to them!

Have a nice day!
