The seething. The whining. The never ending drone

of the perpetually offended Muslim.

They're like liberal weenies on steroids for crying out loud!

Fury as Indian women urged to drop the veil.

The leading candidate for the Indian presidency has enraged Muslim leaders by urging her fellow women to stop wearing the veil. Pratibha Patil claimed that veils were only introduced to India in the 16th century to protect women from Muslim invaders, and were no longer needed.

Ms Pratil, 72, a moderate Hindu and Congress party member who is one of the governors of the state of Rajasthan, has been selected by India's governing coalition as its nominee for the mainly ceremonial role of head of state.

But today several Muslim leaders were calling for the Indian Prime Minister to find another candidate before the nominations deadline, accusing Ms Pratil of of insulting Islam.

Is it an insult if it's true?
