Hindus Fightback

During the 1980's and 1990's I used to read a very common thing in newspapers that "crowds from certain religious place threw stones at Hindu processions carrying the idols of Lord Ganesha or Godess Durga". Why don't the newspapers mention that Muslims attacked Hindus ??

It is a common knowledge of Muslims hatred towards other religions and other beliefs as they consider them as "Kafirs" or Infidels. While Hinduism talked about "Vasudaiva Kutumbam" (the world as a family) other desert and nomadic religions which have sprung up thousands of years after Hinduism have only sown seeds of hatred.

Even though being a Hindu majority country since thousands of years, Hindus have lived under the Buddhists, marauding Muslims and later Christian British. Hindus have lived under persecution from those very people they gave shelter to and those whom Hindus have openly invited.

Oflate, Hindus have started to realize the fact that they are taken for granted and started fighting back as we have seen in Gujarat, Jammu, Orissa, Karnataka and now, other states in the country too.

During the Godess Durga procession in a small town of Bhainsa in Telengana region of Andhra Pradesh, Muslims threw stones on the Hindu procession, as it is common for them. This time round, Hindus fought back killing scores of Muslims.

Muslims and Christians have to learn the art of co-existing. Until they don't do that, they have to be ready to face counter attacks by the Hindus whose mindset is changing.
