How did Muslims demand Pakistan?

Date: 08 Nov 2006


As the author has correctly written,
Hindus lost to Muslim invaders even
after putting up a brave fight. And
then Bharat was rules by the Brit
barbarians and parts of it by others.
Bharat is no longer Hindu -- hasn't
been so for centuries. The government
is not a Hindu government and true
Hindus are a minority in the
population. Bharat today does not
have what it would take to
successfully combat further
Islamization, Christianization,
Americanization, or terrorism.

"Let there be no further shrinking of
India" merely wishful thinking at
this point? In my opinion,
unfortunately, the answer is in the
