Now compare India to a Christian continent like Africa which has 651 million Christians.
Africa is a basket case.

Slavery
From African slaves to African shitholes.
https://m.youtube.com...

Arab slave trade.
https://m.youtube.com...

Why European enslaved Africans.
https://m.youtube.com...

The Atlantic slave trade.
https://m.youtube.com...

Libya Slave trade.
https://m.youtube.com...

African slaves were owned and traded by Arabs, Romans, Portugues and Christians for over 1,700 years. Africa is the epicentre of slavery.

Estimated African slaves shipped during slavery periods by European and Arab countries.
European. 12,5 million 14.4%. Slaves that survived 10,7 million.
Arab. 80 million 85%. Slaves that survived 12 million
Total slaves shipped 92,5 million slaves that survived 22,7 million.

Total estimates on white Christian Europeans slave trade before it was over as many as 60 million Africans would be killed for the profit of white Christian imperialism.
"The largest slave trade in the history of the world was created by white Christian Europeans. Before it was over as many as 60 million Africans would be killed for the profit of white Christian imperialism. A key reason for the high death toll was the tidal wave of war and desolation that the slave trade unleashed into the heart of Africa. Huge numbers of people died being marched to the coasts of Africa from the interior as well as in an endless series of wars produced by the quest for new slaves.
----
Incest
Incest is a real problem in SA, Say experts
The case of alleged family incest in Mpumalanga, Which has shocked South Africa, Is not an isolated case, With authorities warning that incest occurs countrywide.

A Durban teenager has to live with the humiliation of his cousin walking in on him while his own father was masturbating him.

In another Durban case, A 20-year-old woman has pressed charges of indecent assault against her father. The alleged acts included oral sex and the insertion of his fingers into her vagina. The acts of incest took place from when she was six until she was 16.

"Incest is a real problem, " said Childline Director Joan van Niekerk. "While there are many cases of father-and-daughter incest, We are also seeing a lot of father-and-son, And older-brother-and-younger-sister sexual interaction. "

"Father-son sexual interaction happens more frequently than people would like to believe. It leaves the child with a distortion of his own identity and sexuality. They grow up thinking they are gay, " she said.

According to police statistics, About 15 000 South African children under the age of 18 were raped last year. This year, Childline has already referred 600 KwaZulu-Natal children for therapy after they were sexually assaulted.

Authorities warn that 50 percent of all cases of rape and sexual assault on children under the age of 18 are committed within the immediate family.

Rape
Sexual violence is a major problem in African countries. A local organization in Zaria, Nigeria, found that 16 per cent of patients with sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) were girls under the age of five, a sign of sexual assault. In the single year 1990, the Genito-Urinary Centre in Harare, Zimbabwe, treated more than 900 girls under 12 for STDs. Such assaults, observes a WHO publication, put "African women and girls at higher risk of sexually transmitted diseases [including HIV/AIDS] than men and boys."
Out of the 34 million HIV-positive people worldwide, 69% live in sub-Saharan Africa. There are roughly 23.8 million infected persons in all of Africa. 91% of the world's HIV-positive children live in Africa. More than one million adults and children die every year from HIV/AIDS in Africa alone.
Sub-Saharan Africa alone accounted for an estimated 69 percent of all people living with HIV and 70 percent of all AIDS deaths in 2011. ... As of 2011, HIV has infected at least 10 percent of the population in Botswana, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, Swaziland, Zambia, and Zimbabwe.

countries with the highest rape statistics.
1. South Africa.
South Africa has been dubbed the "Rape Capital of the World". Obviously this title has been hard for some to swallow, like President Zuma and Africa Check but to name a couple. Zuma denied this, giving no reason why we should not be called the rape capital, while Africa Check issued a disclaimer, But whether we are the rape capital, or the 3rd worst (Forbes), or at best top 10 worst when it comes to rape, someone is being raped every second of every day in this country!

How many are raped each day?
According to SAPS crime stats, roughly 1.25 million sexual assaults have been reported between 1994 and now. That"s roughly 170 per day. The key word here is "reported".
Interpol reported in 2012 that in South Africa, less than 1% of sexual assaults are reported. A police report around that time stated that only 1 in 36 (2.8%) cases are reported. A 2010 study by Gender Links and the Medical Research Council (MRC) found that in Gauteng, only one in 25 rapes had been reported to the police. It seems that the latest consensus is that around 1 in 30 (3.3%) of sexual assaults are reported, hence the statement that "a woman is raped every 17 seconds in South Africa". What this roughly equates to is (rounded):
" 5,000 per day
" 35,000 per week
" 150,000 per month
" 1,800,000 per year

2. Botswana
After South Africa, Botswana has the highest incidence of rapes at 93 per 100,000 of population. Also these cases are mostly unreported, so the actual incidence may be more than three to five times. This country also has one of the highest incidences of AIDS, and they keep propagating AIDS by such heinous acts. The illiterate, almost barbarian population also believes in the myth that sex with a virgin will cure AIDS, which is a major cause of rapes with children. It is a landlocked country in the southern Africa, bounded by South Africa, Namibia, and Zimbabwe. This poor country with a population of 2.5 million is riddled with severe crimes ranging from theft to armed assaults for money.

3. Lesotho
Rape continues to be one of Lesotho"s main social issues. In 2008, according to UNODC, rapes recorded by the police, was the highest incidence of any country. The number of rape incidences range from 82 to 88 per 100,000 of population. It is one of the poorest countries with almost half the population living below the poverty line. Cases of crimes involving kidnapping, murder, human trafficking, assault, theft etc. abound along with sexual assaults.

And several countries in Africa are not Christian. Of course, The moron would never think of comparing Hindu India to actual Christian countries like England or America.

Racist caste mentality requires comparisons only with what it thinks are "lower" castes. But why compare at all? Just tell us why you think India is great. Without Africa, Would India still be "great"? Then what need is there to mention Africa in a thread that is supposed to be about India?

He either cannot think of anything that makes India great, Or that he thinks India is "great" because of Africa!

it's weird to think about the fact that he needs to make a comparison to make his country look good.

Exactly! And why compare based on religion, Or race? Why compare at all? That's caste mentality for you. Indians think their silly caste system applies to the world.

But nothing about any other country changes India. If he really believed India was great, He would be able to say why without denigrating any other country.

His racism is proof that India isn't great. India is racist.
