Some Straight Talking on The Decline of The 'Hindus' in India

The Hindus have more than trebled in numbers in the past 50 years.

Going by the comments below, these Hindus are nincompoops. Without exception.

They contribute nothing in terms of innovation or in inventions.

Merely keep braying about some mythical ancient glory.

And lack common sense.

If I were to share personal anecdote (while acknowledging that anecdote is not evidence):

My grandparents generation had 13 (living) siblings. Each of them produced 6 or 7 kids on average. My parents' generation had 3 kids each on average.

Thankfully, the 'young generation' seems to have got the message and usually tends to have one kid — usually a son.

[I guess we will have a lot of homosexuality in the manner of the English boarding schools that Hitchens mentioned.]

There is unfortunately too much ignorance or illiteracy around. Which is why absolute fossils of the BJP/VHP/RSS are able to suggest in all seriousness that Hindus should have 4 or 5 or 10 kids each.

Those jokers should be laughed out of town.

If India is to make progress, these religions — Hinduism, Islam, Christainity, Sikhism — must be banned and kids taught atheism and rational thinking in schools.

Just 'education' and certificates and MBA degrees and BTech degrees and MCA degrees are not enough.

That's very clear going by the nincompoopery of the IT crowd sitting outside India who are the most vociferous Modi supporters and who start jumping in anger when this or that 'foreign' publication does some straight talking about Modi's record or his government.

Education, at present, does not teach 'how to think.'

It must.

Well, it seems the Government of India is up to its usual censoring ways ... http://online.wsj.com/article/SB126327347865425871.html?mod=WSJ_hp_us_mostpop_read It's not as bad as what the Chinese are doing in battling Google. The Internet is awash in pornography and the feeble attempts of the Govt. of India won't be able to stem the tide. The Govt. should merely restrict itself to ensuring that there's no child pornography or trafficking of humans. There are problems galore for the Govt. to worry about as it is ...
