You seem to be getting the logic wrong. If people in Thailand respect Hinduism and symbols of Hinduism, the learning for India is not to put up more Hindu symbols in our public places- we already put quite lot and there is the ubiquitous Bhoomipuja for everyting that we put up - but to respect other religions more and to give space to their symbols in public places. Interestingly in India, where it may be safely assumed that our ancestors in the distant past were predominatly Buddhists for some centuries, we have the exact opposite of the Thai situation. That is majority Hindu population whose ancestors at one point of time were Buddhists while in Thailand the opposite holds true. So if you want us follow their example which you so highly extolled, its time we put not Hindu but Buddhist symbols in our Airports.
Moderator Added - At Jharkhand Forum we (all members) agree to disagree with other JF members.
personal attacks : personal attacks are not welcome on Jharkhand forum and any member who resorts to such behaviour will be warned first and then moderated if they persist. Members should feel free to be able to express themselves in a non judgmental environment. This does not mean other members can not question any view that has been express, nor should you expect your own view not to become the subject of debate, but that members should not be attacked personally for the view they hold, and only their reasoning should be open to criticism.
