No, you don't. You continue to miss the entire argument, and project your suppositions unto others in offensive and ignorant ways. None of which involved the Hindus or bookstores in my town, or the several other countries' regions with large numbers of Hindus and bookstores selling Rushdie's books. The "Hindu world", as nearly as I can match it up to "the Muslim world" I keep hearing about. In other words, completely irrelevant. Atrocities, by every religion and most peoples of the world, are a dime a dozen - and easy to find in Western media unless they involve Western atrocity-doers. Have you forgotten your diatribes against the Western over-emphasis on "Hindu" barbarism in India? Now, why are you unable to discuss the topics of this thread? Why, for example, are you apparently unable to compare Juan Cole's take on Rushdie's novels with that of the Muslims here?
