I'm an atheist. Well, sort of. And I'm anti-BJP (and the RSS, Shiva Sena, and other Sangh Paiwar parties) only and only because they peddle this Hindutva nonsense, which threatens the secular fabric of this country. However, that does not mean that I'm anti-Hindu, or pro-Islam/pro-Christianity. I honestly couldn't care less about any of them. But I'm beginning to think that not all anti-hindutva advocates feel the same way. Some folks here seem to be anti-hinduism. Now, that's not secular is it?
@raman I'm not sure about your categorization of people who don't have nice things to say about Hindus, but that's a different matter. But you're right about the fact that people are hurt, and they're venting. It will take a lot of patience and hand-holding to convince them to trust again. But all I was trying to say was that we must try and avoid questioning other people's faith and beliefs, because that will only take us down a dangerous path.
Exactly patience and hand holding
