Folly of Indian Government

in response to reader comment: India is paying Millions of Dollars to Muslims for Islamic Madrassa education & Mecca Pilgrimage

This is the folly of Indian government. India is a secular nation but only for Hindus, Christians, Buddhists, etc., but not for Muslims. Inspite of giving Muslims a country of their own, Pakistan, India allowed a substantial population of Muslims to stay in India and agreed to let these people practice sharia laws for civil matters. Now, if the country is secular, all of its citizens should be governed by the same set of laws but in India. Muslims can practice their special laws, allowing Muslims men to have four wives among other idiosyncrasies. The poor women can be divorced just by uttering, Talaaq, three times, even in their sleep. Recently a drunk Muslim divorced his wife while inebriated, and sleeping and the Muslim wise men, Mullahs, upheld the divorce though later on it was reversed.

Another instance of this "secular" India, as you said, the government pays all expenses to Muslims to go to Haj in Mecca -- a definite jizya tax on the rest of the Hindu, Christian population. Now how many times the government has paid any Hindu or Christian to go for a pilgrimage even in India let alone outside the country.( All the sacred places for Hindus are in India only).

The utter stupidity of the secular Hindu leaders is paying its dividends now. At the time of independence of India, 4 to 5 % of its 400 million population was Muslim as compared to about 15% of one billion population of India now . This shows that Muslim population of India increased at about 4to 5 times the rate of growth of Hindu population.. Thats how fast Muslims are breeding in India - they will take over Idia just by Muslim population explosion. The West should learn from these facts, if it wants to save itself from Muslim hegemony in future.
