A quote of Max Mueller

Via Wiki:

In a letter to his wife, he said:

The translation of the Veda will hereafter tell to a great extent on the fate of India and on the growth of millions of souls in that country. It is the root of their religion, and to show them what the root is, I feel sure, is the only way of uprooting all that has sprung from it during the last 3000 years.
 CIP thinks that Max Mueller studied Sanskrit and translated the Vedas out of scientific curiosity or as a student of culture.  As PT Barnum said, in America, a sucker is born every minute.

In another letter:
 As to religion, that will take care of itself. The missionaries have done far more than they themselves seem to be aware of, nay, much of the work which is theirs they would probably disclaim. The Christianity of our nineteenth century will hardly be the Christianity of India. But the ancient religion of India is doomed — and if Christianity does not step in, whose fault will it be?"
It is clear Max Mueller studied India to destroy it.

PS: And the Hindu has become so stupid that he is so honored to be studied by the white-skinned European and holds Max Mueller in high regard.
