Re: Islamism & Islamophobia Abroad - News & Analysis

Muslims have only themselves to blame for practicing the "We Need More Islam" syndrome. Claiming they are sucked in to it, is like claiming they were sucked into 2-Nation Theory and blaming others for that too.

Strongly disagree with your response. You may not have noticed, but I spend a lot of time posting gora articles that bash India, as well as posting rebuttals to them. The problem is that Indians too have to make an effort on their side not to live upto the stereotypes that others would see us throug...

Re: Issues faced by Commonwealth Games-New Delhi 2010

Well, I don't see why we are creating a myth about whine #1. The implication is that it's okay for Indians to defecate in the streets, and complaining about this situation is about trying to put on airs in front of "the white people". So, in other words, it's okay for us to defecate in the...
