I agree with you 100 % Mr. Alam, killing of innocents is not right in any circumstances. However if the hindus were retaliating the killing of hindus by earlier muslm invaders , their action is justified by your own religious book Quran.

Quran 2.178
PICKTHAL: Retaliation is prescribed for you in the matter of the murdered; the freeman for the freeman, and the slave for the slave, and the female for the female..

But by quoting massacres by muslim fanatic invaders I was commenting on Asim Ahmed who was implying that some how hinduism promoted the hindu violence.

Hinduism , from what I know of it, does not promote violence. On the contrary Quran promotes it , muslim prophet practised it and all muslim invaders followed it quoting quran and sunna.

All Madina suras of Quran, sahih hadiths , authentic earliest siras and islamic history are witness to what I said.
