That's the reasoning of a dog-fancier.

But people aren't dogs.

Well... Maybe people who reason like if people were dogs, it's because THEY are dogs themselves...

TBH it is an odd question. Is your daughter's bf a Christian or something? It's rather uncommon for Indians to engage in exogamy.

Yeah its VERY uncommon, but it does happen. The biggest problem these days is more with the parents. The younger generations don't care near as much about it, don't get me wrong there are many traditional young people, but it is slowly changing. But they do still face a LOT of problems with the parents.

There's no such thing as a "pure breed". That's really a misnomer. They were created by breeding different breeds together. To continue the new "breeds" there is usually some inbreeding initially and these dogs have huge health problems compared to "mutts".

In India, the upper castes have lighter skin and more European features, hence why you can understand WHY the OP wants to know?? Geez, I thought you politically correct liberals were open-minded about other cultures
I'm not a political liberal, don't know where you got that from, you brainwashed one. Those people are all ignorant... that was my point. Not just picking the OP out of his/her society, but the entire society.

I'm well versed with the differences in cultures and especially in India as I go there all the time for work (I have employees there).

It's clear that the OP has not spent much time outside her society and thus has not learned about darker cultures and/or mixed children. Making her remarks ignorant for sure. Only someone like you would defend him/her.

As I stated earlier, the mixed children I know are beautiful.
