Death to all who interfere with religious practices in India appears to be the historical footnote for a very long time, even before Islam made its mark and compelled the fracture of Indian societies into Bangladesh and Pakistan. Kashmir is still a contentious place. If there is any place where the Muslim Brotherhood could be active, it is here in India where such religious enmities and antagonisms are easily intersected and compatible ideological can be asserted with impunity. Yet none of this was originally evident, right(?) until the Messianic mission of the Disciple Thomas (remember doubting Thomas) was ended with his martyrdom just after the destruction of the Temple Mount by the Romans. A few hundred years later came the Islamic mission after the Messianic Gospel was alread diluted with apostate Gnostic Christianity.
