comment Why was the US unable to win in Korea?
But bulk of the fighting against the Japanese was done by the Asians themselves, such as the Chinese and the Indians (through British Indian Army).

comment How were British personnel employed in the colonies after independence
So you mean all freed colonies would pay using their own currency. But the cost of living in the UK being much higher, did they not expect higher salaries than given to Indians? From what I have read, one of the main complaints of the Indian nationalists was that Indians were paid lower salaries than the Britishers even though they did the same work and held the same posts in their jobs. How was this complaint then redressed?

comment Have any major US book publisher published a book about USA war crimes?
@T.E.D. Perhaps this shows the confidence of the Americans in their destiny. A confident people are likely to tolerate and even encourage self-criticism. What do you think?

comment What evidence supports the claim that Shivaji's father was Muslim?
First, I do not question the paternity of Shivaji. But how does saying something about a Muslim pathan malign the great image of Shivaji?

comment Why were Indians not mass converted to Islam/Christianity?
Because, unlike Africa, India was controlled directly not by the British government, but by the East India Company till 1858. Their main aim was profits, not propagation of religion.

comment Why were Indians not mass converted to Islam/Christianity?
@St.SJ No, the Mughals controlled a large part of the land through vassals. The Rajputs, for example, controlled a large part of modern-day Rajasthan.

comment What was Hitler's attitude towards the Aryans of India?
@coleopterist The Abwehr, as you might know, was staunchly anti-Nazi, and did not believe in the racial policy of the Nazis. But, for most Germans, even upper caste Indian Aryans were not acceptable. For example, India's first president Rajendra Prasad was of upper caste, but was badly beaten up by the Nazis in Vienna.
