India a Hindu Pakistan now ?

Is India becoming a Hindu Pakistan ? Most of my friends say so. Difficult to hear this, being so far from the mother land. One thing for sure, India / Indians seem very polarized and divided now compared to few years back. What's wrong ? Is western media selective or has India really gone into the hands of wrong people with divisive agendas. I just hope things get better soon in India.

      Christianity is way past any “convert the world” stuff now. You could make arguments that it was in the past. The only thing that comes close is missionary trips to developing countries where Christianity is preached about to “save” peoples who don’t know about it. But nothing ever approaching forced or for an exchange.

      well its a hell - hole. I have friends who are considering moving their old parents to the US because they worry for their safety. they are muslim and have always lived in our neighborhood. think what you may, everytime I go back to India I find it descending into a cess pit - fascism was creeping on us slowly but now its full on. Economy is in teh shits, trolling on social media is insane. I mean more than 50% of elected MPs have a criminal record. In what way is anythign getting better, my stock market investments have reduc ed to nothing and I am not going to invest in the Indian markets anymore, and Bhakts are still blinded, I guess they will only realise when they face personal loss. btw BJP is the most corrupt party there ever was read whats going on with Adani now, latest scam.

    India is turning from a secular nation to a Hindu nation, and it's heartbreaking. The government is anti-muslims, pro-Hindu, and neutral-all-other-religions. It can be seen from the increasing cow protectors, state renames, mob lynchings, etc. The leaders in power are appointing others in power who believe in a similar agenda, and are regressive in their thinking. The government is not only receiving support from the ignorant class who strongly believes in religion, but also from educated people like many of us who strongly support the current government for it's developmental agendas (and anti-muslim sentiments to some extent) and lack of a strong opposition.

    I don't follow Indian politics religiously but that's my understanding so far. Also, I am not sure why you tagged those 3 companies.

      Problem is ppl sitting in US making comments that are not even close to truth.
      Don't believe everything you see on BBC, nyt etc. Ground reality is different. No law has been passed that favors a particular religion. India is a full fledged democracy. These ppl were elected with due process.
      India has always been a conservative society. By conservative I mean more power to family than atomized individuals. Less power to state. Yes there are extremists on both side but that doesn't mean whole of India has become that!

    High time Modi takes back India and bring glory to it. Muslims came to India as Invaders, looted, and raped Hindus and then carved out 2 countries: Pakistan and Bangladesh. If you don't like it in India you can go to those countries and leave India.

    Modi is doing in Kahmir what India should have done in the 60s. India annexed Hyderabad and Goa in the 50s and should have got done with Kashmir back then.

    Jai Hind!

      FYI about Ashoka: he is respected in India not for killing, but by getting disgusted with killing and choosing the path of non violence and Buddhism.

      How many Muslim rulers have done that? Did any Muslim conqueror ever turn away from killing non Muslims?
      Aug 11
    • Facebook / Eng biddut
      Conquerors/Rulers didn't care if they are Muslim or non-Muslim. They conquered and defeated + killed anyone that came in the way.

      Who do you think Babur defeated when he invaded North India? Hint: it was Ibrahim Lodhi.

      Likewise, Suraj ud daulah was betrayed by Mir Jafar - a Muslim but his Hindu soldiers remained loyal to him (Mohan Lal). History isn't black and white as you think
      Aug 11

      They killed each other, but every one of them had special interest in killing non Muslims and destroying hindu temples.
      Babur after killing lodhi, destroyed Ayodhya temple.

      You missed the point anyways. Did any of them turn away from violence?

      You are Indian Trump! In fact he says the exact same things. You are enjoying the benefits of a secular, pro-equality nation in US, making good money. You have been given the same opportunity as the citizens in USA. You, Sir, are a hypocrite.

      The trouble with your arguments is, one day they will come for you. Tribalism is deep in humans, and you would be wrong to think the axe wouldn’t come to you. There is a reason why modern societies have been liberal and flourished and all the hierarchical, intolerant societies have failed. Be proud of the fact that you are Indian, and India was very tolerant towards outsiders in the olden days.

      Punishing Muslims won’t solve anything at the end of the day, and it will only make them angry.

    A few people in this thread claim India is a counter for Hindus.

    India is as much a Hindu country, as much as US is a White/Christian country. Fringe Right wing groups in the US too claim US is a White person country

    why not these Indians leave a Christian country go back to their beautiful Hindu homeland?

      @GimV31, actually their culture is a mix Bengali and Rakhine. Their language is different from Bengali but it's possible to understand 20-30% from what I have heard.

      I think you are missing the point. In the past, India was more tolerant, open to criticism and would absorb refugees from elsewhere, but now India is more trending towards facism, any criticism to India gets labelled as Pakistani etc. Some of the comments are nothing short of facism (I hope these are trolls and not real)

      For example, Burmese Tamils were expelled in the past that India absorbed (in 90s):

      @biddut: past super liberal policies are basically having a blowback. We’ve absorbed refugees from elsewhere that have then gone on to assassinate our former PM Rajiv Gandhi for instance.
      Then there are a lot of folks that come over and basically blow shit up for some reason or another.
      You cannot really blame the Indian public for getting sick and tired of this stuff. It is a mild swing towards the right. It’s nowhere near fascism.

      This roots in their inner pride and self-esteem, but won't leave US regardless. This is how modern day immigrants operate by and large. But the key issue is 90% and more vote for Dem. That isn't healthy thing for democracy, and Dems just want more and more.

    Far from becoming Hindu Pakistan, no Muslim girls are forcibly converted and married off like it happens to Hindu girls in Pakistan, infact in India it's the Muslims who do grooming of Hindu girls and marry them off while pretending to be Hindu and later forcibly converting them to Islam after marriage, Hindus are oppressed in India by Muslims all their important places of worship are captured by Muslims still 70 years after independence ,so no India is not becoming hindu Pakistan

No hypocrisy there. Now, I ask again, how many non Hindus have migrated away from India? Why don't you apply the same criteria to Indian minority?
      You are the one who is hypocrite, who only applies certain criteria to Indians and Hindus and they have to satisfy them

    Not sure what's wrong with India as a hindu nation. It is the natural homeland of Hindus. People don't have problem with Christian countries, Islam countries, Buddhist countries. Why is there a problem with a Hindu country?

    A hindu country will be more liberal and secular than a confused country with stupid state we have now where it pretends to be secular but imposes restrictions on Hindus and grants others scholarships.

      Europe and North America are the homeland of Europeans as many European beliefs, traditions and practices originated in these lands. All the places of significance are within these nations. For Whites to flourish, Whites need a safe place where they can practice their beliefs and culture without restrictions. Europe and North America are the only places to do that."

    There are few things that modi did pretty poorly:
    * Cow mob lynching - it took him a whole year to even acknowledge killing people was wrong. This also applies to other things where modi remained silent.
    * Demonetization- most of the money was back in account in a single scheme. Most of the stated purpose was never achieved. Goals were novel, but none was achieved.
    *Lot of theaterics than action in economy - actual gdp isn't great, inflation risks, high unemployment etc.

    Good:
    * Getting rid of 370. Kashmir state while claiming oppression, was oppressing both Buddhists and Hindus in ladakh and Jammu. This is the typical hypocrisy. Those regions, especially ladakh, would not have funds allocation, as most of it was eaten up by 2 political dynasty. I am fully in support of removing 370. The state received 10% of federal funds although they should be receiving only 1%. Even after that, their growth isn't great thanks to the inability to monitor funds. The state is still not in GST because of this. It has also caused lot of grief to the traders in the state.

    * Abolishing triple talaq - this is a biggie. My women classmates who are Muslims really appreciated this. As an outsider he managed to do what they have been asking for decades.

    I am for retaining India as a secular state. However, many of these minority appeasement has to stop. For example, India pays so much for Muslim pilgrimage every year. India is second largest by Muslim population. This money can go to improve conditions of people, especially those villages that are yet to have good running water and electricity.

    If there are 2 things in the constitution I wanted to remove, one was 370 and another install uniform civil code. Modi has done the former, not the latter (yet). The law should be same for everyone - not stuff like Hindus can do something and Muslims can do something. For example, polygamy is okay according to Muslim law, so many celebrities will convert to Islam to marry another women, while being married to the existing wife (often for not losing assets to existing wife in a divorce). I am pretty sure there are other cases where someone converts to Hindu to gain something similar to this. That's against the spirit of treating everyone equally and being secular.

    If I were to rate overall - it's smack in the middle. I hate him for some things and like for some things.

      Fully support the above statement. Also add in bad column: enabling truly vicious racists to come to power and make shameful ignorant comments (largely/mostly in UP, not so much elsewhere). I do worry what will happen when he is not around to keep them on a tight leash if already they are doing and saying such nonsense.

      Add in good column: abolish triple talaq, push for uniform civil code. The opposition had the laughable stance that abolishing triple talaq was “against Muslim women”.. this (the complete craven shamelessness and self serving nature of the opposition parties, who each genuinely believed they would each be PM .. some 8 or 9 candidates none of whom managed a half decent showing in the election) is what is giving Modi a bit more power than he truthfully deserves.

      @new: your sample space is bad. Also, many of folks in center left and center right will not open their mouth. The reason is that the radical left and right on both sides are way too vocal. My FB feed is filled with idiots, one who says triple talaq removal is preventing Muslims exercising their freedom of religion (librools)

      And the other side who says we should add cow eating ban in constitution. Both are equally terrible ideas (religious nut aka bakth).

      Many of those posters are often my extended family, so folks like me will never open their mouth and involve in a fight that can be emotionally draining. So you will not see me post this on my FB feed for example and I keep my mouth shut when folks are talking about this issue in social setting even here in US.

    Indians so uncivilized and primitive.
    - Every thread on Blind involving Indians results in name calling and abusive behavior. Not so much in threads on US politics.
    - So much infighting on caste, ethnicity and religion. Even though these issues are in the US too, no where as much as India. Honor killings and frowning upon inter racial marriages don't happen here in the US.
    - Double standards. Indians vote liberal in the US, want freedom of speech, and support right wing politics in India -- which call for India as a hindu country and freedom of speech as anti-national.

      How does it help if countries are separated along religious lines. Where does this stop ? Non-secular countries also do fight internally on communal lines. It is only politicians who get benefitted by flaring up societies along communal lines. Don't know why bhakts cannot understand this.

    Do people have a problem with Pakistan’s existence or even Saudi Arabia or Indonesia?

      Since you're better and smarter than all of Indians (1.3 billion), could you mind explaining me how's that related to the Kashmir issue?

      Here's my word of advice; you could retrospect or hide behind the excuse of toxic masculinity.
      Posting irrelevant content and spewing country bashing hatred only reflects garbage and trash within your mind. It's you who needs to purge the trash within yourself, articulate clearly and post relevant content.

      And please don't try to patronize Indians over here. There could be many of us who are more experienced and qualified than you. A little bit of humility will take you a long way.

      My 2 cents
      How about be willing to admit Indian culture is more primitive and Superficial, instead of already trying to defend India?
      How about admiting the hypocrisy of Indians who want US to be secular but want India to be a Hindu country?

      #techladki for God's sake, we are not discussing Indian culture here lady. I just asked you how is that random garbage picture relevant to the topic under discussion? You seem to have no response to that.

      This is a classic case of "Straw man argument" (look it up if you don't know what that is). With regard to your other assertions, yes our culture is messed up but which culture isn't? We have a long way to go but not all of us are alike.
      Indians are hypocrites but Americans are too. American politics, stance on abortions and gun laws are a testimony to that.

      This is the last comment I'll make. I don't wish to engage with people who are impervious to rational discourse. I expect a sensible person to understand what I meant rather than use "straw man arguments".
      I wish your husband/boyfriend all the best. They'll need it. Goodbye

      Yawn -- This thread is full of people saying India is a Hindu country. If so, they must also be willing to honor similar right wing groups who say US is a Christian country and go back to the trash littered streets if India. And the pic was for that.
      It is grossly hypocritical to want US to be secular and z India to be a Hindu country.

      You would have made sense of it if you took of your patriotism hat and looked at it in an unbiased manner.

      You are making a cardinal mistake of equating Hindu == Non secular
      Get yourself educated on what does being hindu mean first. Simply said HINDU == Civilized Human being

    Hinduism encourages mutual tolerance and respect. By definition if india becomes more hindu it becomes more secular.

    Also islam and christianity are shit.

      Under King and Queen, Madhesis of Nepal had large representation in Parliament as per their large population. Madhesis are tax payers, pro-India. After Mass murder of royal family, Communists came, they decreased representation of Madhesis to curb their free speech. This made Nepal pro-China because of Communist friendship. If this makes you happy, you need doctor.

      Does not make me happy. However Nepal made zero progress under their royal family. In many ways they went backward.
      So if Nepalis believe they can get a better deal from China, I say let them go for it.

      Interesting fact: most of the Maoist leaders in Nepal were educated at JNU. 😂😂

      For one, It needs to change the constitution. Not sure if you';re even aware of that.
      For another, Idiotic Desi hypocrites like you are the first to whine of racism if the US or UK chooses to be a Christian country. This shows a character problem with Indians.

      US or UK bring a christian country should not bother any hindu. We just don't care. It's their country, their choice. It's the Muslims who will be whining as usual.

    OP
    I started this post hoping to understand what's causing this divisiveness. But sadly, this post has become a playground for 2 divisive groups. All I understand by now - Divisiveness is on the rise without any doubt. But what I am not clear yet - Since when this has been happening ? 2010 / 2015, as somebody pointed ?? Who is causing this polarization in the country and what are they going to gain out of it ? Is this trend good / bad for our country in the long run ? If it's bad, what can anybody do to fix it at the bud ?

      So, you think the civil Americans don’t get triggered. So, talking about sex between Donald and Ivanka is just how civil, educated, “non-triggered” people have a discussion.

      The thing is you have as much trouble accepting that you are a hypocrite, as everyone else. Yet, you, like everyone else, wants to take the moral high ground.

      Ya, I agree that calling someone a communist is the worst thing anyone could say.
      Aug 11
    • Microsoft techladki
      That's uncivil but more civil than calling one another "porkie", "cow piss drinker", and other choice words starting with mother and sister.

      I mean seriously, the first comment is STFU and so many people like it lol
      Aug 11
    • Zyzyxtech Xyzyz
      Are you serious? If this is what got you triggered, and you’re suggesting that this kind of name calling, insults, etc don’t happen in US, then you’re really ignorant. There is a lot more hate in US for the other side than probably you’re aware of.
      Aug 11
    • Zyzyxtech Xyzyz
      There were some very sane comments in this thread, but those don’t generate enough excitement. People want to find that one extremist from the other side, use his/her comments as an example to make general comments about the whole community. That’s why media thrives on showing the extremes. Moderates, who might be in majority, are just too boring.

    Lol this post clearly shows how unaccepting we are to a different point of view. The debate has so quickly regressed from a healthy discussion around the country/government to people attacking each other with personal and highly inappropriate comments (like hatred, go back comments, and mom comments). If educated people like us, working some of the best jobs in the world, and who can think for ourselves, exhibit this behavior, then the ignorant uneducated class' behavior isn't surprising.

    Maybe it's time we all take a step back and analyze what we are becoming as humans. Our country, religion, political views all come later. We need to learn to have a healthy discussion first.

    I don't want to be preaching and I know my comment is gonna attract some more hatred/personal remarks, which completely goes against my point. But nevermind. Have a great Sunday, y'all.

      This forum sucks for useful discussion. There is zero moderation for quality and gets overwhelmed by trolls who derail every thread into a dick measuring contest about TC. Unfortunately, reddit is equally bad.
      HMU if anyone knows a better place for anonymous discussion about subcontinental issues.
      Aug 11
    • New jbnote1
      @kmCS55, that is the problem with anonymous forums. You have to sift through a lot of shit to look for meaningful discussions. But I believe anonymous forums are the only place where one can have discussion on such sensitive topics
      Aug 11
    • Pindrop kmCS55
      @jbnote1 moderation and well defined rules partially take care of trolls. YCombinator's hackernews is a great example of a place with some intelligent discussion in the tech community.
      I would imagine Blind's requirement for company emails would act as a natural filter but apparently that's not the case. Blind clearly does not seem very invested in making this a productive forum. Maybe they even encourage flame wars to drive up engagement.
      Aug 11
    • New jbnote1
      YCombinator started up specifically ained for tech world and nothing else. The discussions include number and in depth analysis by seasoned people which is boring for trolls to even partake in.
      When moderation is introduced, you will see biases and anybody with polarising view would always be flagged. Reddit is the prime example for this, where anything not flying with the mainstream view gets downvoted into oblivion.
      But again, anonymous forums are heaven for trolls.

    • New NidI04
      It is not about anonymity alone.
      Discussion leads to name calling very often when it involves India.
      Clearly, the behavior is not just about anonymity but the behavior of some folks (??).
