Re: slavery in Abrahamic religions
Well personally i believe in a old law stating what is yours is yours. What you conquer is what belongs to you. This is a basic rule of war and war is not with honor and i find slavery in this condition acceptable whether liked or not simply because people are humans and humans sadly dont consider each other equal nor do i especially in my case if i ever told you my life you would understand this but its long and to pitiful to be put on this forum. My mother's Parents were Indonesian/Indian and Egyptian and at that time and still today Indonesia has been trafficking non muslims to Saudi Arabia and many years ago my mother was that result and trafficked for the purposes of proxy wars. Wars fought indirectly by third parties, incase you dontknow India is the world highest mercenary and private military exporter next to Vietnam, Only China signed the UNMC banning child soldiers and private militaries but no asian country including Japan has signed this agreement. My mother became trapped in this game and my father met her in Egypt etc etc etc and the rest is history......

Take note that of all religions Hinduism permits slavery the most, incase you dont recall the untouchables. Slaves by debt or war which is something i fully approve and the only circumstance of slavery i find justifiable. So please be aware India and its association with Hinduism puts no Hindu in a position to speak against slavery
