in response to reader comment: It's too bad "Masood" and like Muslims don't comment up front here instead of burying their baloney in ancient postings

Mr.kman,.. Who are terrorists or whom we say terrorists? I call them terrorists who kill or try to kill innocent persons. I need to tell you my own biography then you can understand better.

I was 6 when I saw an old tailor showing scars of swords and spears on his back to my mom. He was left almost dead in a pile of other dead bodies but he survived in 1947 partition of the subcontinent of India but his all family members did not prove so lucky. Who were those killers? The peaceful Hindus. My grandfather had migrated before1947 with his two sons and two daughters. His other family members still live in Utter Pardesh, India. I was eleven when I saw my father in great grief and my aunt ( my father's elder brother wife) weeping as she received a bad news that her nephew was burnt alive by a mob of peaceful Hindus while he was ploughing in his fields. This incident happened after almost 40 years of partition, in India.

I met a friend at Punjab university campus who came to get Master Degree. One day, I knew that he actually lived in Indian held Kashmir ( the disputed region between Pakistan and India ) and fled to Pakistan held Kashmir, several years ago. According to him, he lived in Srinegar with his family. One night, they were awakened by a noise, coming from their neighbor's home. Indian army had raided that home to search for a man to be terrorist but found only parents with their daughters. So, they had got terrorist sisters. They started dragging elder daughter, enclosed other family members in separate room and took that girl to other room and started playing peaceful game with that girl. His older brother could not resist to cheerful cries of that girl and despite wrestling of his father he jumped into that home to interfere that peaceful game of peaceful army. His brother had committed terrorist act, so got riddled with few no. of bullets as a reward for terrorism. So, now his home was also a terrorist home. The Indian army started firing at their home, but his father, somehow managed to escape from home. They were good athlete except his two sisters so they were caught and taken to Indian army camps as a gift for their commander for playing more peaceful games. One more thing, his sisters were permanent sports girls. So invisible to that day.

I married and my wife's aunt was telling a funny story of their elders past migration to Pakistan in 1947. Her father was a kid while accompanying his father's 73 people terrorist group. At once of peaceful mob of thousands people attacked them. They kept defending, but how long this terrorist act would work to stop that mob to reach terrorist ladies. When 27 terrorist ladies saw that their terrorist men can not stop peaceful mob and dying around them, they all started jumping into Jamna River as ladies of Rajputs do to save their honor as a custom. Sorry, I forgot that they were Muslims and terrorists also so they have no honor. All peaceful Hindus know where is Jamna River. That peaceful mob disingtigrated with a news that a big group of Muslims was comming behind.

My wife's one grandmother keeps telling the same funny story again and again. She was 8 in 1947, living in a village. Everywhere was a fear in environment that they may be attacked by any peaceful mob of Hindus and Sikhs. Their men would sit on all corners of village at night to avoid massacre of all those terrorists who had been successful in getting their free land from British colonial rule. One day, peaceful mob attacked their village but could not get access to village because terrorist Muslims were alert. Finally Indian army appeared and convinced them if they all terrorist hand over their guns then they will make it possible to give them safe route to Pakistan. They were deceived in their simplicity and trusted army. After, they had been deprived from their arsenal, the peaceful mob started killing from one side and army started firing from other sides. Moreover, peaceful Christians who have been living among them for so many years. My ears could not believe and wondered, oh, gandma, they will be peaceful Hindus but was rebuked that she knew better who had been living. She saw piles of dead terrorist streets filled with pool of blood. In short, she and her father and one brother survived due to a Sikh Land lady who intervened and yelled at those peaceful Christians and mob that why are you killing your neighbors who had been living like brotherhood among you.

I ask you, Mr.kman if your own daughter would be in that trouble, and I would try to show courage to save her, would you like to call me and my whole family terrorist.

I am grieved at 235 innocent persons killed at the hands of terrorists. Should I not feel sympathy for 100,000 Kashmiries killed by Indian army and thousands of girls raped by Indian Soldiers?

We want to finish terrorism then we need to bring justice first. Kashmir Issue is 60 years old with resolutions pending in UN but never implementation took place about the right of self determination by Kashmiries about their future. Because it is not East Temur.

I love America and want America to be loved all across the world. But, our going in Iraq due to wrong information of our Intelligence Services. We were supposed to be in Afghanistan to hunt down Alqaeda operatives along Pak- Afghan boarder line. But, why we alone to take all headache? We should invite 10,000 army from almost 100 countries and our commanders should command them. If, anywhere problem arises about terrorism which is a global problem not only our problem, then we should held responsible to that country by itself to overcome and we should provide all kind of technological support to that country. But, if that country is not able or willingly does not want to stop terrorists, so we should use our allied force. At least, nobody will be able to blame any country in particular.

But, we should avoid any war to last limit of solution. I am watching atrocities committed by Hitler on innocent Jews in concentration camps in a movie on History Channel. War brings destruction. Our war in Iraq was for a good purpose though, but on the end, we see 1-2 million civilians and soldiers deaths, mostly at the hands of terrorists who were trying hard to disrupt peace under liberation of Iraqi nation.

Thanks..
