There are violent extremists in every religion, therefore there must be violent Hindus. I have read a few articles about Hindu nationalists, in the past. There are violent Hindus as there were violent Christians in the past. In Israel, there are some fringe Jewish groups who oppose negotiations with the Palestinians. However, you should be talking about terrorism within your own religion. Hindus didn't fly two planes into American towers; Hindu terrorism amounts to a marginal part of world terrorism. 9-11 was not about Hindu terrorism.
