Mumbai – ‘If Hindus are a dangerous and oppressive community, as some now charge, why is it that immigrant Hindus throughout the world are peaceful, productive and respectful, pose no law and order problems or national security threats ?’ tweeted Dr. David Frawley is an American thinker and scholar of Indian culture. He was awarded Padma Bhushan by the Government of India.
He further tweets, ‘If Hinduism was as violent as Islam then no desert cult would have dared to convert our ancestors. In fact we would have converted them. Those who are proud of their Islamic culture, forget how their mothers were tortured to convert. They are the product of such a culture’.
