Please do not use the words Hindu Terrorism or Hindu Terrorist for what is happening in India today. It is offensive to a majority of Hindus; they are good people like all other majorities in other faiths.
Yes, when the extremists from the Modi government or its affiliates tell you, that you the Christians and Muslims, will be eliminated from India by the year 2021, you are tempted to call it Hindu Terrorism.
But look beyond, the good Hindu majority is standing up for the human rights of all Indians, to them, religion is individual, and all are Indians.
Relentlessly, I have commented on the subject in the last few days at Whats-app, Facebook, and other social media, and chose to write a few full paragraphs on it.
Coming up: Muslims must be appreciated
A majority of the people are innocent, and they believe that everyone is treated the same as they are. However, the fact is a white person cannot understand the tension a black man feels when gets in the car to drive. A Hindu in India cannot comprehend the apprehension a Dalit, Muslim or Christian feels "these" days, it is all a new phenomenon.
People can live with a bad economy, but they get sick of division and discord among fellow Indians. The very purpose of government is to ensure all of the inhabitants of the land live freely and securely. Under Modi Raj, everything has gone wrong from the economy to disastrous demonetization, giving major contracts to his buddies like the Rafel, GST, Farmers suicides, Triple talaq and now the Kashmir blunder. How far is he going to sink India before we wake up?
Once again, condemn the acts of RSS/ Sangh Parivar and not Hindus or Hinduism.
