There can be no comparison between Mahabharata & Jihad, they are poles apart. Mahabharata was fought for just & selfless cause while Jihad is a barbaric violent crime , born out of hate against nonbelievers of Islam. In Mahabharata battle was fought amongst kings of that time, common man was not involved, neither it was fought in the name of religion..There was no element of hate against other communities. So only a mischievous mind can compare barbaric Jihad with Mahabharata.

Islam & Hinduism have no comparison..Hindus never killed people in the name of religion while millions of people( so called Kafirs ie. nonbelievers) got killed with the spread of Islam. Islam is a basically a religion of violence ,full of hatred towards Jews & Christians.
