"You see our dear Amin Riaz who ran away"

Where is it that you imagine I have ran away to? And from what?

"because as far as I know there are no doctrines even close to the Muslim doctrine of holy war or jihad"

Really? The Jewish massacre of Canaan. A whole lot worse. The Christian Just war theory. As a hindu you might be interested in the Mahabharata.

"if the Crusaders did not attack the Muslims caravans and affected the Muslim trade Salah el-deen would not have done anything"

There you go! See even you sing his praises
