hey, what do you wanna prove by falsly fabricating your own people?

and you seem to have very little knowledge of history - at the time of lord Ram, lord Buddha had still to come and messge of Lord Buddha came to Sri lanka even later.

and as far as Ashoka is concerned, he did'nt kill forces of Kalinga because they were Buddhists, unlike Muslim barbarians who killed people of India because they were Hindus.

and as far as your myopic view regarding killing of Korvas at the hands of Pandvas is concerned, what do you think happens in wars ? it's in the same way Pakistani attackers were killed by the indian army to defend the Dharma. So next time any enemy attacks you or your loved ones , dont fight but surrender to their sweet will ...ok.

And how can you compare Hindus at par with Muslims as far as terrorism is considered , when there is hardly any Hindu organisations killing innocents in the name of this great religion. but you will find dozens of Islamic Terrorist group in our own Kashmir alone and what to talk of India and the rest of the world. Just give a little overview to medival Indian history (if possible Islamic history) and u will come to know Hindus had been the largest victimsts of the Islamic Invasions which made them almost exitinct in their own land presently called Afganistan, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Kashmir ofcourse.

at one hand you say say low caste Hindus are only true Hindus, and on the other hand you praise those leaving this faith as they were not given equality. did they ever tried to find that in scriptures Caste system is Karma based and not Janama based and a Vidwana is always worshipped, hardly matters where he comes from. there is equality in the religion if some people practice otherwise shold we leave our Dharma ,and should 'nt we try to reform those misguided souls .

Actually there is nothing wrong in converting, but only when done after understanidng one's own faith and the other as well which you convert to. And as far as the religions of Indian origin are concerned, they have most of the things common. So all the Indian religions viz Sanatan, Buddhism,Jainism or Sikism can be clubbed into Hindu/Indian term. So there is no need to convert as such there are so many aspects here adhere to any thing which touches your heart and mind. And if we go by understanding conversion within indian religions is not possible as such as they influence each other so much.

So come out of your prejudices, open your mind and think with cool and rational mind. you will come to know about the greatness of your own religion and country as well .
