We cannot generalise and say this is the way all Christians behave. May be a few Christians you know behave like that. I am a Roman Catholic Christian from Goa and I have been to most parts of India including Dehradun, Pune, Kochi, Hyderabad, Delhi, Mumbai, Chandigarh and most of my friends are Hindus, Muslims, Sikhs, Budhists and even Parsis. Very few persons could be the way you have mentioned. This applies to persons from others religions/faiths also.

Today religion has become business and the preachers make all efforts to keep he christians away from people of other faiths because they fear that christians may convert to other religion and their business will decline. In Britain and the US more christians are converting to Islam.

Actually Christanity was found many years after Jesus ( Yeshw) in the time of Roman Emperor Theodous ( may be I have misspelled the name) Early Church and pope just payed lip service to ideals of Christ.

The king james version of Bible in English is written more to suit the political masters of that time so there are many misinterpretations example instead of Romans cruxifying Yeshow it was Jews who killed Jesus. All Hebrew names were latinized and anglicised such as Joseph instead of Yusuf , Jesus instead of Iseus ( greek) or Yeshw ( Hebrew) sowing seeds of rift.

The deliberate writings against other religion suits vested interests and in india the process is being repeated using word "Pundit" in the Evangelical literature in Hindi and other Indian languages citing biblical stories from Jerusalem.

I found older christian communities from Malabar ( Syrians) and Goan catholics ( Converted in 15th century) more amiable then neo converts in other part of India.

Im not sure about what christians do. But generally hindus have tolerance and appreciation of other relgions and beliefs, whereas christians lack on this aspect in generally (there may be tolerant people too). Christian missionaries and those who work for missions and christians in general believe that it is Jesus who is the real and true God who has experinced the life of man - the good and bad aspects - so Jesus would be the only God who can understand and empathise/sympathise with a human's sufferings, wants, prayers, etc.
They feel other religions or Gods are not capable of this and also feel that other religions or practices have shortcomings, superstitions, which cheat and mislead people. That is one of the reasons that christians dont believe in other people's faiths or practices and are not tolerant to it. The popular belief is that muslims are non-tolerant - could be true for a large muslim section - but unfortunately Christianity- which is prevalaent every where - developed ...more
