Terrible hate speech.

Wow.

India has for many years been plagued with piles of incidents of anti-Christian violence -- arson of churches, conversion of Christians by force to other religions, physical violence, sexual assaults, murders, rapes, and the destruction of Christian schools, colleges, and cemeteries.

But this gets ignored by the media while some nasty words against Muslims warrants immediate front-and-center-of-attention headlines?

Again... why only Islam? Why not all Abrahamic religioins? Why not all human made religions (all)?

Here's a chart here that shows how significant the number of hate crimes against Muslims are, and another one showing how those crimes are increasing.

Modi is little different from other despots, he finds a group to demonize, gets his closest followers, usually those benefiting most by proximity to the despot and their media to fan flames, which for whatever reason then attracts more followers to the despot's group, dividing and keeping the despot and his regime in power. Despots know it's easier to attract followers by creating fear and enemies, real and imagined, to fear.

The possibility of a Muslim Holocaust is moving closer to a probability if no brake is applied to the growing threat of right-wing Hindu nationalist violence because humans appear incapable of learning from the cruel, blood-stained history of our species.

Yes must be, because other than the 40-80 million under Mao, 7 million under Stalin, 3 million at the hands of the Khmer Rouge, and thousands during the regimes of Castro and Chavez, no one has ever perished under left-wing governmental rule.

Come on Reamer, we're better than the than that sort of nonsense.

Elections are coming and the usual narrative based disinfo... India Hate Lab.. well at-least name it something more convincing..

Hate speech against Muslims to win elections is a speciality of BJP.

But thats mostly rhetoric with some spontaneous incidents of violence. India has the third largest Muslim population in the world and some of the most popular Bollywood stars and cricketers are Muslim.

The US has killed or enabled the killing of more Muslims around the world with their policies than India ever will.

So these self-righteous liberals coming here to comment should spend some more time researching which country is the most hated across the Muslim world.

And if I understand correctly, these Western liberals are okay if niqab is banned in France, but they will pick on India because that's how they get their daily fix of looking down on a third world country.

Because those two groups of people are one and the same, right?

But may I ask, how do you know they are the same group of people?

I can give you multiple examples of these self proclaimed liberals coming here to criticize India on every such article, but they keep quiet when France does it because France is one of their own.

Well, whatever is being said, historically Hinduism belongs to the subcontinent of India and Islam belongs to regions around Mecca and Medina. So it is in fact a religious and cultural question of constant offensive expansion versus suddenly being forced into defense.
