And they're no different from the Taliban, Isis or any other group who commits to murder in the name of nationalism or religion.

This movie, the world before her, was freaky as hell.

[–]bigdumbbear 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Agreed, but it was a documentary.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Documentaries are movies aren't they? Or am I using that wrong? Either way, when they do the little hitler-youth style rally it freaked me out. Lots of my friends are Indian brothers.

semantics aside, thanks for posting the name of a good documentary/movie :) I've been wanting to learn more about India, especially the tensions between Hindu nationalists and Muslims. EDIT: Just realized it's partly about beauty pageants. You sure this is halal lol? :D

I lowered my gaze a lot like lol. During the Hindu nationalist parade, it shows an old Muslim uncle seeing it from the street. His dismissal and turn-around is one of the funnier things I've seen.

[–]shadowlightfox 9 points10 points  (3 children)

I love how they're acting like Muslims make up a majority of the country.

"We'll shoot dead Muslims" - what does this mean?

Ninj Ed: is it used like the American expression "shoot 'em dead"?

[–]Jorvikson 1 point2 points  (0 children)

"Everyone in here's dead, we won!"

"You know this is a graveyard, they were already dead"

[–]Exxec71 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeah may not be direct translat but yes that's the point.

Hindutva organizations are highly organized, they are also opponents of Hindus converting to either Christianity or Islam. They have spearheaded anti-conversion legislation in numerous states that prevent or make near impossible the conversion of a Hindu to another religion; often justifying it as a necessary measure to counteract the use of material incentives by missionaries. However, they have no compunction themselves in aggressively offering monetary incentives to Muslims and Christians to convert to Hinduism in highly publicized ‘reconversion ceremonies.’

The only prosperity India has had was during mughal rule (islamic rule)

[–]tinkthank 6 points7 points  (3 children)

I'm a Muslim and of Indian origin.

This is a ridiculous notion. India historically has always been one of the richest places on this planet. Prosperity was not confined to Mughal rule (Islamic rule came to India long before the Mughals did), nor was it confined to Islamic rule in general, but existed long before they arrived. In fact, many Central Asian groups attempted to conquer India (successfully) due to the riches that lay within the country and is a region of the world that has one of the longest existing civilizations.

Unlike what Hindu nationalists will tell you though, Muslim rule in India did have a massive impact on modern India and added to the rich history and culture that makes up the Indian subcontinent. To say that India was made better only by Muslims is as ignorant as saying India is better without Muslims.

Sorry I should of been more explanatory. India was barely ever under complete control from one leader, it was always to large and leaders focused way to much on northern India (Delhi regions). Once the mughal toke over and slightly before that, they focused on India as a whole rather than Delhi area which has always been fought over for.

Not true. See Ashoka

[–]autowikibot 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Ashoka:


Ashoka Maurya (/əˈʃoʊkə/; Sanskrit: अशोक मौर्य; 304–232 BCE), commonly known as Ashoka and also as Ashoka the Great, was an Indian emperor of the Maurya Dynasty who ruled almost all of the Indian subcontinent from circa 269 BCE to 232 BCE. One of India's greatest emperors, Ashoka reigned over a realm that stretched from the Hindu Kush mountains in the west to Bengal in the East and covered the entire Indian subcontinent except parts of present day Tamil Nadu and Kerala. The empire's capital was Pataliputra (in Magadha, present-day Bihar), with provincial capitals at Taxila and Ujjain.

Well I'd prefer them shooting dead Muslims to live ones...

[–]Mazf23 1 point2 points  (2 children)

I wouldn't trust anything said on loonwatch, they even defended muslims travelling to Syria to commit jihad terror.

Op will surely deliver.

[–]SYEDSAYS -1 points0 points  (1 child)

This in insane. There is absolutely no comparison between Hindutva and Taliban.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

One is an ideology, the extreme end if which is held by some terrorist organizations the other is a terrorist organization.
