Jihad how far Spiritual

Reader comment on item: Jihad and the Professors
in response to reader comment: Inexpressable Gratitude for Dr. Pipes' Courage

If Jihad meant as many muslim apologists claim to - only a kind of inner purification no objection. Let it be so .But what we in India have experienced over the centuries is Islamic marauder looting -plundering the country destroying the holy Hindu Temples and converting them into mosqes- forceful convesrion of the populace -Kafirs or Infidels as they interpret it- In India we have hardly experienced the so called spiritual aspect of Islam.(They cant call it defensive war since Indians never invaded in country beyond its traditional border -so Islam was never in Danger so far Hindus were concerned for the likes of Allauddin khilajis and Mohamd Gazanis to invade india).

Neither in historical times nor in the recent past. They are still continuing Jihad in Cashmir by killing inocent people and driving out innocent Hindu Pundits from their ancestral land. Jihad for few muslims may mean Inner Purification but what the world has experienced is its most violent and disgusting aspect in the mass killing all over the world recently. The sad part of it is majority of Muslims take pride and pleasure in what has happened and is happening.This evident in their group discussions in ther Ijetmas .Untill recently indian Muslims were comparatively modest but the wind of violentce has infected them as well because of the Arabian Dollars that are pouring in the country for so called religious activities, which certainly are not peaceful.
