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.

India court rejects Hindu protest on mourning for John Paul II

2005-04-21 Published by Indian Express Gathered by Press Trust of India

NEWDELHI,APRIL 21: A court in India has rebuked Hindu activists who brought a lawsuit to protest the federal government's proclamation of a 3-day period of mourning after the death of Pope John Paul II. The Delhi high court dismissed a "public-interest petition" brought by two Hindus, who had demanded an official explanation for a mourning period in the case of a "less significant person" like the Pope. During the 3-day period, flags were flown as half-mast and government ceremonies were postponed. The court not only rejected the activists' petition, but fined them 0 apiece for abusing the judicial process in what the court find to be a publicity stunt.
