  1. A good effort in right direction. Inshallah soon atmosphere in whole India will change if such efforts continue.

  2. India in general is quite tolerant of all faiths, except where it has contact with Pakistan. Most extremist Hindu government in India which is in the state of Gujarat, shares border with Pakistan. Reasons are quite apparent, which are based on the decades of fear that they have lived with. Which is that their temples can again be destroyed and their lives could be at stake. Also, the Hyderabad incident, guess is more so because Hyderabadi muslims in general still tent to maintain contacts with Pakistan, just like British whites who remained in India after India’s liberation from UK maintained contacts with UK. Example of tolerance can be given from the fact that India is the only country in the world where Jews have lived for more than 2000 years without facing anti-semitism. It’s time that Pakistan do something to undo this anti-India hatred which is rooted in anti-Hindu hatred. Zaid Hamid is a champion of the cause of Pakistan. As an Indian i feel disgust at these type of creatures which Pakistan has created and as a Muslim i feel ashamed of calling myself ‘muslim’ at such people!
    “Zaid Hamid calls to kill all hindus”!
