Oh no no, I'm just asking. I mean, among a billion plus people, such incidents form a tiny fraction, doesn't it? And it is not like as if the state machinery is involved in propagating this terror. IIRC, the Indian state in question, Kerala, has a Christian Chief Minister (equivalent to a US state governor), in an 80% Hindu state.

Now imagine this happening in a Muslim country.

Agreed. Sounds like media hype.
The few Christians there are in India tend to cluster in the south -- where the Portuguese came and converted some Hindus.
Of course, this story WAS put here and we ARE responding....the ole carrot and stick routine. :o)

Actually Kerala has only around 55% Hindus.Christians & Muslims compose close to 45%(near equal ratio).
