in response to reader comment: When will we put this argument to rest for good

So you heard 50 people killed in Bangladesh(today) which day? I have heard 5 people dying one day during protest, when police fired. There are political rallies, and stikes and street violence in Bangladesh all the time for variousl reasons

. But you did not hear muslims being massacred in the name of religion in neiboring myanmar, 40 people killed in one day and entire business and villages gutted. A few months back thousand of Rohingya muslims were massacred in a neiboring state. Have you seen buddist mobs led by a monk attacking and burning muslim business in colombo (peacefully!!).

In your own country Narendra Mody, the future prime minister in waiting earned his reputation by burning 2500 muslims alive. His fellow minister Maya Kodnani got 28 years jail. The hindu sage Swami Aseemanda is spending time in jail implicted in many bomb blasts for which muslims youth were arrested, tried and punished priviously. I would not call all hindus or buddists as murderes for that reason.

You now pick up a few criminals with muslim sounding names, many of whom may not be muslims at all. If they are muslims and jihadis, then almost 13000 gunned down yearly including tiny nursary kinds, cinema goes, district attorneys etc, are all dine by crusaders.

Your hate is going to eat your soul and spoil a generation behind you. It might very well come back on you like the evangelical parents gunned down by their 14 years old son in new mexico.

There are no good killers or bad killers. All killers are killers irrespective of their or their victims religion.
