It has got nothing to do with poverty. It has more to do with thought process that is imparted to Christians and Muslims by irrational, insane books and preachers. Jainis, Sikhs, numerous tribes,
Buddhists, Parsis, Jews, Zoroastrians, sects like Osho have lived in peace in India. Muslims have the habit of living with violence while christians have become a bit reformed but incite violence through their irrational acts of demeaning other religions and Sanatan Dharm. What is true for India is true for entire world… Misery is due to Christianity and Islam.

And how much simpler it would be without them to then go in and begin to educate people and help them start climbing out of poverty.
