is Hinduism a violent religion?

Full article will be at Huffington Post by December 31, 2014
The extremists among Hindus have hijacked the religion of peace and non-violence, just as the extremists among Buddhists, Jews and Muslims have done it with their religions. It is time for the moderate Hindus to speak up, if not, the new narrative would be Hinduism is a religion of violence, fascism and forcible conversions.
Hinduism is indeed blessed not to be slapped with 9/11 like terrorism label on it, despite the massacres of 3000 Sikhs in New Delhi by the violent Hindu mobs in just three days, for a total of 8,000 Sikhs within a week. Nearly a thousand Muslims were butchered by the fanatic Hindus in Gujarat within two weeks in 2002. Christian Nuns were raped, their churches pillaged and some of the missionaries were burnt alive including Rev. Graham Staines. What is done to the Dalits, formerly known as untouchable is unforgivable. The historic 500 year old Babri Mosque was destroyed in 1992 by extremists Hindu mobs.

No good Hindu should be offended by the above, they did no wrong. They would be wrong if they don’t speak out against it.

The Majority Hindus need to speak up to save the nation.
