But the problem is that rigid Islamic fundamentalism, originating from the Saudi "Wahabbi" sect, has spread everywhere, taken over many educational institutes (funded with Saudi money) and is much more energetic and fanatical than anyone else. These Pakistani supported separatists in Kashmir have it in for many Muslims, as well as Hindus etc. The future looks grim, because (what this article doesn't mention) Hindu fundamentalism is also on the rise, and the current govt of India is dominated by types who have no interest in retaining India's secular and democratic traditions. The BJP openly espouses supression of Muslims, Christians and "prohibited castes" (untouchables.) Fanatics everywhere, getting all the power.
Am I the only person who remembers the fundamentalist shiite muslims of Iran. Islam at its fundamental is evil, whether shiite, sunni etc.
