Safraz says:

"There is a reason the 160 million Muslims in India are not radicalized, but the ones in Pakistan are becoming increasingly so."

Who said the muslims in India are not radicalised? During the 700 year long Islamic rule more than sixty million Hindus were killed and thousands of Hindu women were raped. As recently as 1921, Gandhiji started the khilafat movement for the restoration of Caliphate in Turkey to appease the muslims. Some one started the rumour that the British have handed over power to the Delhi sultanate and the muslims started the riots in Kerala. It is estimated that ten thousand Hindus were killed and thousands of women were raped. When thousands of women were raped and many of them killed by the Moplah Muslims during the Moplah rebellion in 1921, the brutalized women of Malabar led by the senior Rani of Nilambur gave a petition to Lady Reading, the wife of the then Viceroy of India.

"We, the Hindu women of Malabar of varying ranks and stations in life who have recently been overwhelmed by the tremendous catastrophe known as the Moplah rebellion, take the liberty to supplicate your Ladyship for sympathy and succour."

"Your Ladyship is doubtless aware that though our unhappy district has witnessed many Moplah outbreaks in the course of the last 100 years, the present rebellion is unexampled in its magnitude as well as unprecedented in its ferocity. But it is possible that your Ladyship is not fully appraised of all the horrors and atrocities perpetrated by the fiendish rebels of the many wells and tanks filled up with the mutilated, but often only half dead bodies of our nearest and dearest ones who refused to abandon the faith of our fathers; of pregnant women cut to pieces and left on the roadsides and in the jungles, with the unborn babies protruding from the mangled corpses; of our innocent and helpless children torn from our arms and done to death before our eyes and of our husbands and fathers tortured, flayed and burnt alive; of our helpless sisters forcibly carried away from the midst of kith and kin and subjected to every shame and outrage which the vile and brutal imagination of these inhuman hellhounds could conceive of; of thousands of our homesteads reduced to circular mounds out of sheer savagery in a wanton spirit of destruction; of our places of worship desecrated and destroyed and of the images of the deity shamefully insulted by putting the entrails of slaughtered cows where flower garlands used to lie, or else smashed to pieces; of the wholesale looting of hard earned wealth of generations reducing many who were formerly rich and prosperous to publicly beg for a pie or two in the streets of Calicut, to buy salt or betal leaf -rice being mercifully provided by the various relief agencies of Government. These are not fables. The wells full of rotting skeletons, the ruins which once were our dear homes, the heaps of stones which once were our places of worship - these are still here to attest to the truth. The cries of our murdered children in their death agonies are still ringing in our ears and will continue to haunt our memory till our own death brings us peace."

The theology behind Islam is violent; if a Ph.D in aeronaughtical engineering, a neuro surgeon, diabetes specialist and a soft ware engineer drive bomb laden SUVs in the airports, I will blame only the theology and not the individuals. How the Hindu India deals with the muslims, please read my other comment dated 31/03/08 for an elaboration.
