i'd answer the good dr. suseelan's questions thus: it's their nature, it's their habit. they can't help it. it's like the parable of the scorpion i once recounted in a column as below. the communists are looking to kill the hindus off, and then they will die too, as has been seen in a) the case of the soviets, as the vatican and the cia finished off the russians, b) in the case of bangladeshis, as the mohammedans lined up and shot all the godless communists.

==== quote ====

The second is a fable from the Panchatantra. There is a flood, and many creatures on the forest floor are in danger of drowning. A scorpion, fearing a watery fate, asks a passing frog to carry him on his back across the water to safety. But the frog is sceptical, as he knows the scorpion has a well-deserved reputation for stinging. The scorpion assures him that he will not, as his life will be in danger if he does.

The twosome set off across the stream, the scorpion on the frog's back. Halfway through, the scorpion stings the frog. The frog, paralyzed, begins to sink. With his last breath, he asks the scorpion: "Why did you sting me? Now we will both die." Says the scorpion, "I cannot help myself, it is my nature to sting."

Dr. Babu Suseelan
Recently I was having a conversation with a Marxist academician from India who was on a speaking tour in the U.S. He was invited by a college under the management of a Christian fundamentalist group. During our conversation, he accused "Hindutva Vadis" of being "mean-spirited, hateful and, judgmental."
The conversation was instructive that led me to ponder the question why atheist Marxists have an affinity for Islamic and Christian fundamentalists.  Why they hate peace loving, tolerant and passive Hindus who believe in coexistence and universalism? Why have they established an unholy alliance with Islamic fascists and Christian fundamentalists in India?
