Indian Hindus have continuously blamed one religion for all such incidents. Each time, an incident flared up, they blamed Islam, its books, and its prophet, and termed the religion to be innately violent. Such blame game doesn’t allow us to address the real problems.

Most Indian Hindus believe that such violence and strife will not reach them. While they continue to foment and fuel the hatred which spawns more such violence, they believe they are immune to the consequences such as rioting, killing and pillage. The discontent, the frustrations, the disillusionments that we continue to foster in one religion or one region will come back to haunt us all. Give this another ten years, and what do we get? A civil war! It won’t spare us because we are locked up in our cozy homes. It will eventually knock our doors, and we will all pay the price.
