You got your history wrong, then you got your geography wrong then you got your current day world demographics wrong.
And then you think you’re fit enough to post your view out here. Do you believe in your own postings or are they sent to you by your CCP propaganda division?

come on MW, Carrot, have some patience. India is a pretty complex place with over 5000 years of continuous history and civilisation. Most Westerners think of a fat, smiling Chinese guy when they think of the Buddha, and they also think that the Chinese invented Martial arts. Well, you can't blame them, but can be a little patient in explaining the facts.
Furthermore, Indic religions are as complex as India -- can you really define what is Hinduism? Sanatan Dharma? By some groups it's a narrow definition of beliefs, by others it includes Buddhists, Jains and Sikhs and by some others it's more cultural than religious. Hinduism survives because of it's plurality. India survives because of it's glorious messiness --> can you imagine a dictator like Mushie starting up a regime in INdia?
That would never happen -- even if the guy was a Hindu, most likely he'd be a UPite and the south and west would boot him out. No, India is complex and takes time and patience to understand, so be less brutal with folks who made honest (I hope) mistakes
