I agree that we can't remove the Hindu bias and probably we should not remove it (i'm not sure about this). That silly notion of being neutral has been just a facade used by many politicians and been a silly construct of many unthinking left-oriented academicians. That's why i mentioned in my post #45 that Some form of nationalism and pride about Hinduism is fine and necessary, but it should not come at the cost of peddling unhistorical facts and increasing irrational hatred against the minorities expecially in the 21st century.IMO You just can’t remove the Hindu bias in a majority Hindu community.
It’s common sense. So chasing mirage for some weapon sales to a Muslim country that follows Ummat Principles and goes many extra miles for avoiding anything Yahoodi, it will lead us to nowhere.
That said I’m neither a devout Hindu nor is a fan of 56 inch govt, to make things clear here.
We need to start somewhere to sell our products. Malaysia is not Yemen or some African country that is witnessing civil war. We should not directly allow the Malaysians to dictate our policies, rather our policies should make us proud and have a standing amongst the worthy countries. At the same time we must also be practical and not dream of some utopian world.
Making a strong pitch for the Tejas to Malaysia is a good move IMHO. We have to tell the world that at least some of our defense products are very good, and that we aim to satisfy the customer also.
