There are some very disturbing comments here, with some commentors justifying violents action against Christian evangelists and missionaries by rioters, others dismissing the non-violent ways of Ghandi, others voicing offense at being labelled Hindu fundamentalists, stuff like that. Very one eyed, very emotive, very militant … very ironic in some ways. I made one attempt at constructive dialogue but it was quickly rebuffed. I think it well and truly shatters romantic Western perception of Hundus as intrinsically pacifist. The initial post seemed mild enough, but boy, read the rest. Extremism comes in many guises.
This is one of the challenges I think we need to be aware is emerging in our increasingly pluralistic and glocal culture. People who respond angrilly and aggressively to missional Christianity.
