The institution of separate electorates for the Musliims was the first expression of the pernicious two nation theory, which ultimately resulted in the foundation of Pakistan. Published documents fully establish the fact that this was created by deliberate policy as an effective method to keep the Hiindus and Musliims apart. Lady Minto, the wife of the Viceroy who was reponsible for this piece of political Machiavellianism, noted with glee that her husband had by this act ensured for a long time the authority of the British in India. The system of separate electorates was a simple device. It provided that Musliims should be represented only by Musliims, elected only by Musliim voters and, further, that no Musliim could represent a Hiindu constituency or vice versa. By this expedient the Musliims in India from Cape Comorin to Kashmir became a separate political entity, perpetually at odds with the Hiindus and judging all issues from the point of view of a reliigious community. As the Musliim candidates to the legislatures had to depend on a religiious franchise, their views and policies came to be moulded by considerations of religiious fanaticism. India took over forty years to be rid of this vicious system and that, too, at the terrible cost of a partition.

Jolly well paste the same message thousands of times. I don't want to waste my time reporting your message for "abuse"! Enjoy!!!
What is the objective of conversion to Chriistianity? Defnitely it is not for helping the poor. In that they might have helpped the poor Chriistians first. There are millions of poor Christiians in India who cannot even afford two square meals a day.

My dear dil jo, the common H1ndus who do not have any knowledge about Chriistianity cannot differentiate between the good Churches doing selfless services and the dubious denominations indulging in conversions by deception (not forced conversions as some people say)!! It is for the established Churches to expose the nefarious activities of such denominations. A few months back one demoniation of Church accused Pentacostal Mission of deceptive conversions and they started crying foul that the orthodox Churches acted like "Judas"!
Pl tell me frankly what is the objective of conversion?
In the words of Prof Richards: “Rajput willingness to accept Mughal hegemony was not won without force”. Indeed, it took Akbar fully two months to breach the walls of the fortified city of Chitor, defended by just 5,000 Rajput warriors left behind by Udai Singh when he took himself off to a “subordinate fortress”.
It is to be noted that when Akbar himself “killed Jaimal, the Rajput commander of Chitor, with a well-aimed musket shot, whose death broke the morale of the defenders” the rite of jauhar was performed by setting fires as the “Rajputs killed their families and prepared to die in a supreme sacrifice … in a day filled with hand to hand struggles until virtually all the defenders died.
“The Mughal troops slaughtered another 20-25,000 ordinary persons, inhabitants of the town and peasants from the surrounding area on the grounds that they had actively helped in the resistance. Only an audacious body of one thousand musketeers, men of Kalpi who had done much damage to the Mughals in the siege, managed to escape Akbar’s wrath … Udai Singh, however, remained at large, uncaptured by the Mughals until his death four years later.”
The above is not meant to say that Akbar was (merely) a cruel and merciless man. Such, and worse, were the ways of the conquerors in those times. Akbar proved to be a great monarch and in his later years began to abhor bigotry, re1igious chauvinism and intolerance. But that’s another story.

Common sense!!!! It is all about power to rule and not about religion. The foriegn invaders cam to rule the country and have the power and not any religious agenda Similarly even today BJP wants the power to rule and do not have any religious agenda. they are just using religion to get the the position of power and doesnt matter if few hundreds are killed for it.
If they had any religious agenda hadnt they build the temple and done somethinbg for downtrodden millions of hindus. Understand politics!!!

I am not a supporter of BJP. So keep your skewed logic for yourself and your ilk. Which other Political party has done anything for the "downtrodden millions of hindus" or Mus1ims or Chriistians? BJP is just another political party. Why do you have such expetation from them??

Because Muslims and christians who came to India not for converting people or invade , they came to help the Indian people and they left India for you. We should thank them for their help.

Stellar, these guys can f00l only the illiterate tribals/dalits of MP or Orissa only. They cannot debate with a person having knowledge of many Re1igions.
