Demolition of Hindu temples in Islamic Malaysia is secular

Even America has taken note of it as religious oppression. But not the "super-secular" Chindu. Below is a clear demonstration of Chindu's religious bigotry against the Hindus.

The Hindu : Opinion / Editorials : A step forward in Malaysia

Chindu thunders:
The stance of the Hindraf leaders has been provocative in nature. Certainly the charge of “ethnic cleansing” has no relation to the situation in Malaysia. By seeking to organise Malaysian Indians under a Hindu identity, Hindraf is doing them a great disservice. Malaysia is, self-admittedly, a non-secular state. While the demolition of Hindu temples is a live issue in Islamic Malaysia, to present it and other grievances in communal colours is sheer folly.

There have been instances (in fact, court cases) of dead Hindu Malaysians, declared as having converted to Islam just before death and buried as Muslims! If it is not "ethnic cleansing", at least it is "ethnic manipulation" and Chindu finds it convenient to ignore such incidents.

Of course, Chindu has to reluctantly admit to the demolition of temples in the "non-secular" (a rather nice euphemism) state of Malaysia. Since Chindu is wearing special secular glasses it is used to seeing everything Hindu in dark, communal colours and so, it is in Chindu's habit to blame Hindus even if they meekly try to organise themselves.

Besides, there are several "Indian Muslim" and "Indian Christian" organisations in the US. Chindu never bothered to chastise these folks as "communally minded". On the contrary, they get prominent coverage in Chindu (during seasonal attacks on BJP, RSS, VHP, Narendra Modi etc.).

Malaysia prefers to identify itself as an Islamic country. At the least Chindu could have respected that refrained from shoving their insidious political agenda on this simple notion of identity.

Today it is worked up over Vasundhara. Anything BJP and these marxist satraps suddenly gain voice. Come issues related to Islam and Naxal's paper turns deaf, dumb and dead as a dodo. Man, why people even buy this commie rag, beats me.
