Setting India on Fire!!!
Hindu Fascist Violence against Christians,Muslims, Sikhs and minorities in India
 
"It is a matter of deep humiliation to confess that we are a house divided against itself that we Hindus and Mussulmans are flying at one another. It is a matter of still deeperhumiliation that we Hindus regard several million of our own kith and kin as toodegraded even for our touch."
 
M.K. Gandhi's address to the US through Columbia Broadcasting System in 1930s: 
Such discrimination, as noted by Gandhi himself, forced many Dalits to convert to Islam, inthe hope of gaining some social standing in the society that refuses to consider them humanotherwise. But the VHP led Hindu right took this to be an unforgivable sin. To abandon theirreligion and that too for Islam outraged the hardliners to the core. The VHP saw this as aserious threat to its notion of Hinduism.India, the world's largest secular democracy is everything but that. This rhetoric sounds goodbut only for so long. It becomes nauseating when this hypocrisy takes such toll that humansare openly butchered in the streets while the government prides itself to be a representative of those very people.
