In the comments on my post ' Massacre of Ismailis in Pakistan ' many views which were very unfair to Muslims in general, and Sunnis and Pakistanis in particular were expressed. Has all my teaching to you Indians gone waste ?
I have repeatedly told you that 99% people of all communities, sects, lingual and ethnic groups are good people, though they may sometimes be misguided by a few wicked people. This is what my teacher, the great French thinker Rousseau taught me when I was still a young man, a lesson which is deeply embedded in me even now when I am 69 years old, and is a core principle in my philosophy ( see Will Durant's ' The Story of Civilization : Rousseau and Revolution ' ).. I have repeatedly tried to pass on this truthful knowledge to you all, but sometimes I feel I am hitting my head against a wall, and that most of you are absolute blockheads and incorrigible. For the fault of 1% mischievous persons you blame the entire community. Have you no brains ?
As I explained to you in several articles, e.g. ' What is India ' ( see my blog justicekatju.blogspot.in and on the website kgfindia.com ), India is broadly a country of immigrants, like North America, and this is why it has so much diversity--so many religions, castes, languages, ethnic groups, etc. So the only policy which will work in our sub continent is secularism and giving equal respect to all communities, etc. , the policy of the great Emperor Akbar.
To demonize Muslims, or Sunnis or Pakistanis is playing into the hands of our enemies who wish Indians ( in whom I include Pakistanis and Bangladeshis ) to hate each other and fight with each other, and thereby keep India backward and poor. When will you people wake up and realize the truth ?.
