With the passage of time, India digs itself deeper and deeper into an immoral hole. I wouldn't be surprised if those surveyed even practice true Hindu beliefs. For a country that saw itself once so superior to the Muslims, stories like these show there is slowly becoming little difference in cultural, spiritual regard for life between the two faiths.
