~ A little insight of why there are rather strong negative tensions between Muslims and Hindus. ~

In 1947, though Kashmir was majority Muslim, the majority of the population of Kashmir (inluding a majority within the Muslim population) did not support joining Pakistan and instead wished to join India or for independence from the two states.
- Yeah, who'd want to join Pakistan? -

Anyway, hostilities began in early October 1947 when a tribal rebellion broke out in Poonch in southwest Kashmir. By October 20th the Pakistani Army enterred the conflict in support of the tribal forces. Pakistan's timetable was to capture the capital of Kashmir, Srinagar, within a week.

In a nutshell: Pakistan was able to acquire roughly two-fifths of Kashmir which it established as Azad Kashmir, meaning free Kashmir.

Obviously since this conflict India and Pakistan are not in good terms. And since those two countries are differenced mainly by religion, such as Hinduism and Islam, it's a conflict between Muslims and Hindus, and a few of other minorities.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

You see, even if they are terrorists, they consider themselves as part of Islam. They are doing this in the name of their belief; their religion, which happens to be Islam.

I can't help, but notice that wherever the Muslims go to, they start conflicts, problems. Even in the Philippines(Mindanao).

A few examples:
- the communal violence between Hindus and Muslims in India
- in Southern Thailand between its military and Muslim militants
- Christian-Muslim conflicts in Mindanao

Ignorance and too much pride make you do some stupid shit.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

That's the way to go! Lets kill some innocent tourists. I mean who cares about the nice influx of money that we get from tourism?

Lets all do it like them. Lets kill those who don't agree with us, or represent a nationality which we hate. Yes, lets bomb those fucking people from the White West to death!

i think everybody here forgot that they haven't verified if it's deccan mujahadeen indeed that was responsible for the attack. only couple of emails that claims so and the investigation hasn't even been concluded yet.

in politics there's always those dirty tactics of making certain group a scapegoat.

not saying that it's outside the realm of possibility that the muslims are just some blood-thirsty, jihad-loving, barbaric people that the media exaggerates them to be - and that was the reason why they came to hotels and shoot some tourists indeed.

but ah.. i mean cmon. If it is a muslim militant indeed. And they're exactly what the media say. Wouldn't they brag already about this (post a video on youtube? that's what they did with that beheading thing). Wouldn't they write anything already stating what it is they were trying to achieve by shooting all these people?? Wouldn't they gloat?

why did the media not elaborate on this err.. email that claim responsiblity for the attack. aren't they usually a quote-loving people?

so my conclusion is: chill people. we don't know the whole story just yet. it's too early to be blaming the muslims and passing insults to them.

I'm Muslim, and Indian. I don't know anybody who's supporting the terrorists btw.
You're just generalizing us as the 'radical muslims'. Damn, did you know that *gasp* Muslims died in the attacks? Not just one or two... dozens of them. Heck, the Mumbai Police Commissioner leading the assault against the terrorists was a Muslim.

Heck, I even saw Major Unnikrishnan (A Bangalorean who sacrificed his life to save his juniors in the Taj hotel) have his body being carried by mourners of all religions and cultures today. There were Muslims, Hindus, Sikhs etc. at the funeral. We stopped the car as the body passed by, and said a prayer too.

I mean at the end of it all, lack of tolerance and communal aggravation is what motivates terrorists anyway.

EDIT: You got all the Kashmir facts wrong. The Maharaja of Kashmir was a Hindu, and the majority of the population was Muslim. While most of the people wanted to join Pakistan, the Maharaja was indecisive. Pakistan tried to take Kashmir by force, which forced the Maharaja to ask India for assistance. India's condition was that Kashmir be a part of India, which led to the first war between India and Pakistan.
Even now, Jammu & Kasmir is a disputed region. The Hindu dominated Jammu region wants to join India, while the Muslim dominated Kashmiris want to join Pakistan.

People have been killing people since Homo-heidelbergensis, probally even as early as the dawn of man-kind (when Homo-habilis evolved from the Australopithecus genus around 2.4 million years ago). So this is nothing new.

Well, I know that also Muslims died in that incident. =/ Those terrorists are reckless, and for them, whoever is cooperating with the Indian government, or living there is supporting their enemy, whether they are Muslim or not.

No.

Never said otherwise.


While most of the people wanted to join Pakistan, the Maharaja was indecisive.

The part with the Maharaja is true. But "most of the people....Pakistan" doesn't ring a bell here. I guess there are more theories about that matter? =/

I thought that most of the population there was for independence. Even now, they'd rather go for independence, or am I wrong?


Pakistan tried to take Kashmir by force, which forced the Maharaja to ask India for assistance. India's condition was that Kashmir be a part of India, which led to the first war between India and Pakistan.

Correct.

there was something in the paper today about a muslim cabbie who lost 9 members of his family to terrorists damn, that's the worst kind of situation for anybody to be in...

the terrorists didn't really discriminate between Indians, foreigners, Hindu, Muslims, young or old when they were high on ammunition. They only got selective a few hours into their killing spree. heck, they were even shooting waiters and stray dogs at first.
