Let me ask you one thing. What if India (with majority players Non Hindu) plays Cricket against Nepal? Would you support Nepal because it is a100% Hindu country?

I will support India. But I will understand if an Indian hindu supports Nepal, based on certain factors which might not be true  here but listing a) hindus being minority in India. b) Huge cultural difference always look at nepal to find culturer roots c) can related to Nepal being a home d) being discriminated in India for being hindu etc..

I will have to disagree with you here. Because in my opinion our country should come before anything. So I won't understand if an Indian Hindu supports Nepal or an Indian Muslim supports Pakistan. I just can'tConfused.

Now coming to point d). Do you think Muslims are discriminated in India for being minority? If you do then please give some instances.

Thats another good length out swinger with 3 fielders at slipsSmile

There are several incidents and articles regarding discriminations which sure are debateable as there is no as such rule defined in constitution but will give you day to day instances when I was India were obvious to me

1. My Brahmin nieghbour in Mumbai was friendly with everyone in the building expecting two Muslim families.

2. Our building had no drinking water initially being new construction and someone had to supply water, there was standing instructions that someone cannot be a muslim, decided by the society.

There are other petty ones which are by no means logical but they happen, and its in hearts and minds of older generations and unless you closely observe its hard to kind of visualize. No matter president is Muslim, top stars are muslims etc but fact is driscrimination prevails.

Regarding the Bold - Whats the defination of "Our Country" - country one was originated or country where one is born and bought up?

My definition of 'Our country' in this case is the country where your roots are, the country where you live in.

Say - I am American born and roots from India. I should support America or India?

I think many can cite similar instances from day to day life about discrimination not just based on religion but caste, colour, gender. Let us look at the bigger picture.

 

Thats right so you agree in day to day life Muslims suffer discriminations. Bigger pictureConfused  your focus was on point 'd' and thats what I explained.Smile

Edit - forgot the font color change :)
