The claim that 43.5 Percent of India doesn’t want a neighbor of a different race is unsupported by the WVS data

I recently decided to research survey data for a counterpoint to the Ex-Mu$lim $cam activism, and found data from the Hindustan website that I recall reading about on the Washington Post before it became a “pay-to-read” gated online community for the wealthy. Here is what it mentioned:

Well, it seems this claim was taken up a further notch of sophistry, because the Wikipedia article claiming a 2016 survey provided a new 25.6 percent data, which is actually in the original 2010-2014 dataset, links to the above 2010-2014 survey and not any 2016 survey.

As it turns out, this claim that 43.5 percent of Indians of India don’t want a neighbor of another racial background seems to have been complete bullshit created by the seemingly incompetent Western Journalist Max Fisher or WVS screwed-up its data like it did with Taiwan and Bangladesh and didn’t publicize the corrected data regarding India:

Oh, and here’s a list of the far more reputable Pew Research organization and their evaluation of racial attitudes towards minorities from the so-called enlightened Western world of Western Europe:
