Hindu dharma is implicitly at odds with monotheistic intolerance. What is happening in India is a new historical awakening... Indian intellectuals, who want to be secure in their liberal beliefs, may not understand what is going on. But every other Indian knows precisely what is happening: deep down he knows that a larger response is emerging even if at times this response appears in his eyes to be threatening.

The Andhra Pradesh unit of BJP would soon launch an agitation, protesting reservation to Muslims in the state, state general secretary K Lakashman said.

"The BJP will protest the state government decision to implement five per cent reservation to Muslims on religion basis," Lakashman said.

"Even the High Court in its verdict said that reservation should not be extended on religion basis", Lakashman said adding, despite the court orders the state government was "trying to implement the same".

Before coming to power Congress promised to include number of other backward classes in the backward class list "but so far no decision has been taken on these promises."
