comment Comparision between demagogues in the Ancient (and Modern) World
And perhaps too broad in scope.

comment What kind of armor did the soldiers use in pre-gunpowder Southeast Asia?
Welcome to History Stack exchange. Please edit your answer into paragraphs- this is difficult to read. As for your contention, could you provide some references?

comment Why Nathuram Vinayak Godse shot Gandhi?
@vais I understand that the accepted view on Gandhi's assassination is contested. To elicit response you have to ask the question citing contested views. However, my advise is to refrain from using right-wing propaganda type references. Academic sources on this matter, which are not outright political messaging, should be available.

comment Why Nathuram Vinayak Godse shot Gandhi?
@TylerDurden not "Brahma". What you mean is "Brahmanical Hinduism" and it's tenets. "Brahma" is the creator God. It's easy to confuse the two ideas. In Brahmanical Hinduism the Brahmin caste is regarded as the uppermost caste. It is the Vedic/Puranic form of Hinduism with many variants as well.

comment What is the reason of Mongol Empire success conquering that huge territory?
1. Could you provide some references to this? 2. Is this not a pretty common tactic in many wars? "Accept me as the supreme ruler or face death." Why would that be an added advantage for Genghis?

comment Did Gandhi ever make a comment about Islam?
This quote may be wrongly attributed to Gandhi. See this. In any case I don't think there can be a "for-or-against" opinion on any religion by Gandhi. He was trying to unite all under one umbrella. He would thus have (at least publicly) respected all religions.

What do you mean by "similar comment"? Are you expecting he said "I like Mohammed but I don't like Muslims?" That's highly unlikely.

comment How did people categorize each other in the middle ages, how did racism work?
My comment is based on conjecture/guess. But I felt feudal structure would be a strong defining category. So yes- others with better knowledge should weigh in.

comment How did people categorize each other in the middle ages, how did racism work?
"how important these areas where in relation to each other". I think this would vary from section to section of society. Still too broad. And I think feudal structure, hierarchy, nobility would be far greater determinants in defining a closed social group than most others. If you're aristocratic, then you belong to that section.

comment How did people categorize each other in the middle ages, how did racism work?
This is very broad. Possibly subject matter for a book. I'm not sure this can be answered in the scope of H:SE. If you narrow down your question to one focus area, such as say language, OR religion, it might be easier to handle.

comment Did Mountbatten favour India in partition of India-Pakistan?
He offered fertile regions to India? I thought the subcontinent was divided on the basis of population density of Hindus and Muslims. Can you support this view about fertility?

comment Why have wheat and rice been consumed in different forms?
"while rice has been boiled and consumed in "granular" form" is not the only way. Its been consumed as Dosas, Idlis, Papads, solid tubes of gelatinous rice, - there's got to be at least a 100 different rice foods in India alone.

"Church was a natural mechanism for announcing Sundays". Could you provide the mechanism for this announcement? And some references please?

I don't see how this answers the question.

I'm not aware of the structure in Europe, but in the Indian subcontinent, even villages had criers to announce events. So I would infer that the same could apply to Europe as well. Also, the months themselves are not important, but possibly a festival that month is. Farmers of course would know their seasons well.
