"While India's vast population of more than 1 billion somehow seems to hold together, the country itself has failed to resolve major problems, such as the status of Kashmir and the Sikh separatist movement. Moreover, the collective Indian psyche is still profoundly wounded by the 1947 partition; no healing process has yet begun."
"The lesson for all in these troubled times: do not blame a religion, any religion, as the root cause for so much violence in today's world. Blame instead fanatical politicians, marginal power-seekers, and militant terrorists, who distort and exploit legitimate religious beliefs in order to expedite self-serving secular agendas. It is never the message at fault, but rather, its misappropriation and misuse."
