    But India is and has been for thousands of years multicultural whether we like it or not. It has almost as many official languages as the EU. To try and establish a unifying culture would mean either imposing it which could very likely lead to a backlash from the subcultures, which has lead to atrocities and disaster elsewhere, or splitting India into numerous different countries based upon ethnic, linguistic, and religious lines, which wasn't very pretty the last time they tried that.

    The Indian approach is a good one I think, a federalized system whereby all these sub cultures are recognized and given their own unique sort of recognition. In India state elections have a higher turnout than national ones, which suggests people are more tied to their sub-cultures. But I don't think that's necessarily bad, by not asserting the national culture as mutually exclusive to the sub-national cultures the members can feel that their national and sub-national identities are compatible and mutually reinforcing. Is it perfect? No but I think its better than the attempts in other postcolonial societies to try and impose from above a single national culture at the expense of sub-cultures.

    I certainly don't support India imposing a Hindu identity. Egypt, Iraq, Israel, Lebanon, Turkey, China, Italy, Greece, Spain, Pakistan, Iran, Arabia, Syria, Russia etc.. have all been multicultural for thousands of years. I mean is there is an old world region that conforms to a present day country , that is not a small island or archipelago , that hasn't been multicultural? Islamic countries especially feel they are entitled to enforcing Islam as the dominant and only officially acceptable culture.

    Ok. So its the shortcomings of multiculturalism? What happens when people are targeted because they are gay, or poor or disabled? What do we chalk that up to?

    I'm not sure what your point is, if anything some of those examples prove my point. Turkey has a long running Kurdish insurgency because since the days of Ataturk they've tried to impose a uniform Turkish identity on their citizens to the detriment of their subcultures like the Kurds.

    Indeed, you bring up an excellent point. Mixing islam and hindu culture seems to produce the worst human beings on the planet

    So this only has to do with 8 year olds?

    Bigots love to use any examples to push their agenda of multiculturalism not working. Some of the worst places in the world in terms of crime are also some of the least diverse.

    My point is that what is said of India applies equally to those aforementioned countries. It shouldn't be the case that monoculturalism is verboten in just India.

    That is fucking horrible. I pray for her loved ones and hope the men who did this are brought to justice.

    First, I didn't say that only applies to India. I often advocate for something that kind of system for many other countries. Turkey could benefit from some of its policies which give concessions to subcultures, like official recognition of minority languages.

    Second, India is more diverse than basically all those countries. Like I said, it has almost as many official languages as the EU in addition to a few different major religions as well as the vast diversity contained within Hinduism itself on top of the ethnic diversity. I think the US is one of the only countries more diverse than India really and we're a federalized country as well.

    Hell is a sick Christian and muslim invention. Literally it isnt believed by jews or early christians jews. Because it was not in there texts.
    These rapists should die. But there is only 3 Hindu countries tiny Mauritius. Nepal which has 26 million people and then India. They basically feel surrounded

    Lol, bad example.

    Croats, Bosniaks and Serbs speak the same language, and they are genetically much closer than they'd like to admit.

    Drinking is a way to escape women (like nagging wives) and just watch MMA for some people.
