    Till now he is not.

    But if the same minorityism and hindu-bashing continues he will be one day.Period.

    Well you gave a totally wrong and an irrelevant example.

    Your example of Tigers would have been correct if the ultimate aim of the Tigers was to establish a 'Hindu' state in Sri Lanka.

    Was it their objective ?? No. Their objective was to establish a 'Tamil' state in Sri Lanka.

    Now tell me is 'Tamil' = 'Hindu'. ?

    Your argument is like Hindu can be a militant because Netaji Subash Chandra Bose was a Hindu. *hitwall*

    Because the Hindu priests do not give 'orders' to their faithful to vote for 'this' party or 'that' party at religious congregations like either the pastors or the mullahs do.

    Ahh its the season for veiled threats and muscle flexing again............. poor oppressed Hindu that has been taken advantage of Congress for so long can finally take a sigh of relief finally that BJP has emerged.

    All that talk is quite reminiscent of early 1990's, LKA's rath yatra and the whole 9 yards. Been there, done that..............


    A militant is a militant irrespective of their stated goals, whether it is establishing a "Tamil" state in SriLanka or "Ummah" across globe. According to your definition a militant is only someone who has a religious goal or ideology, and somehow Hindus are immune from that.

    That is a deluded take on religion and militancy.

    PS: Did you consider LTTE to be "militants" or "Freedom Fighters" ?

    Prima facie your argument may seem valid and may even sound sensible.

    But when you consider the fact that Hindus constitute an overwhelming majority and are no way near being a monolith constituent with a religious head, it would be impossible even if some priest wanted to pronounce a religious diktat.


    Besides there is no need for a religious head to issue orders when you have plethora of "Hindu" organizations working for a political party.

    Irrlelevant nonsense. In a democracy it is the job of the society to convince the people of independent vote. You don't go after the whole community for such behavior.

    There are at least a few hindus who have become terrorists. If people like you are allowed to have a free run, more people will turn terrorists- period.

    Anyone can be a militant. There is nothing so spectacular about hindus that prevents us from being terrorsts. Make no mistakes- our caste based divisions never allowed enough unity towards a cause to see terrorism before- that's the reason why Hindus have historically (till independence movement) never indulged in terror- no some 'inherent quality'. Right now some people smell power and they think terrorism can get them there.

    Rahul unaware of Indian history: RSS

    NEW DELHI: Expressing shock over Congress leader Rahul Gandhi's remarks that radicalised Hindu groups could pose a "bigger threat" to India than the LeT, RSS said the statement indicated his lack of understanding of Indian history.

    "The remarks of the Congress general secretary prove that he is totally unaware of the history of Hindutva as well as the concept of nationalism," Sangh mouthpiece 'Panchjanya' said in its editorial titled 'Think before you speak Rahul'.

    "Will the Congress, which considers Rahul Gandhi as its future and the future Prime Minister, be able to protect its very base by relying on his ignorance. The electorate of Bihar has already given its reply," it said.

    Such statements would not only weaken the nation's fight against "jehadi terrorism" but also encourage it.

    "Some of the documents released by Wikileaks exposed the Congress policy of Muslim appeasement. But everyone is shocked at the anti-Hindutva mentality of Rahul," the editorial said, adding that earlier also, Rahul had compared SIMI with RSS.

    The weekly claimed though such statements though are a result of "half-baked" knowledge, they are part of a pre-planned move.

    "There is a need for the country to remain vigilant against the anti-national thinking of Congress," it said.

    According to Wikileaks, at a luncheon hosted by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh at his residence in July 2009 Rahul had told US Ambassador Timothy Roemer that growth of radicalised Hindu groups was a bigger threat than LeT.

    CBI should investigate Rahul Gandhi for ISI links: Swamy

    New Delhi, December 20 (ANI): Janata Party President Subramanian Swamy while addressing a press conference in New Delhi on Sunday accused Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi of having connections with Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) agency. Swamy said that CBI should investigate into this matter as it is a question of national security. While commenting upon Rahul's Hindu terror remarks published in WikiLeaks, he alleged that this may be one of the government's conspiracies to divert attention from the core issue of Islamic militancy to Hindu radicalism.++

    People like him what? Such a poor quality post,when did he support terror in any of his post? And U straight away call him terrorist just because he supports Hinduism? And yet still U dont and are not ready to answer why people like Afzal Guru are not punished.
    This is the curse and greatness of democracy.

    Any one who has understood caste system well will not put a immature comment. The caste system ensured that everyone did what they did best. Mind U the system did not label anyone as to a particular caste. U will never be called Kastriya if U are a coward. The great example is Karna was accepted in Mahabarat for his greatness as warrior.
    Of course there is always an inherent quality that defines a person. It is more important how we are brought up that is where HINDUISM teaches not to hurt other fellow beings. I am Sure every other religion IN INDIA teaches the same. I repeat IN INDIA.
    When U dont understand the qualities of an HINDU try to understand instead of blaming it. U are sure to choose ur religion, HINDUISM and INDIA allows it.

    U first state LTTE as HINDU terrorism now ranting something different. First learn what is an terror organisation, then comment.
    LTTE lost the so called freedom fighters status when they killed their own people, when they killed other fellow humans in the name of sacrifice.

    Its not a veiled threat. Just a sincere wish that reason prevails over votes and the elaboration of consequences if it continues.

    You are free to interpret in any way you see fit.


    Strawman.

    You can have quoted the LTTE only if I had claimed "A Tamil can never be a militant", not while saying "A Hindu can never be a militant". But anyway you wont understand this and again post some gibberish. :crazy:

    FYI LTTE had scores of Muslims and Christians amongs its ranks. Charles Prabhakaran, son of V.Prabhakaran was a converted Roman Catholic.

    What I consider the LTTE to be is irrelevant here. What example you give to strengthen your argument is only relevant.
