Extremist Hindus "Drew First Blood" by Killing Muslims for eating meat (Hindus worship cows)

Reader comment on item: Islam's Future [Can Be Modern]
in response to reader comment: how islamists cleaned up kashmir of all kashmiri hindus

Submitted by Peter Amschel (United States), Jun 19, 2007 at 20:53

I was studying Islam for several years and decided to get a close-up look in the year 2000 by seeking to travel through Afghanistan, because the Taliban appeared to be claiming to be the best of the muslims.

When I got to Islamabad, Allah brought me together with a young Kashmiri who had just finished studying law and he offered to be my guide to Afghanistan although he told me felt they were "congested" muslims. I saw the peaceful, family oriented Pakistani society and how the women were so chaste that I converted to Islam on 9/24/2000.

I filed out my visa form in the Afghanistan embassy and stated my purpose on the form as being a new muslim studying Islam, and we were told by the tall Talib with the long black tail on the turban to check back later as the visa had to be approved at Kabul. Finally, after about 7 - 10 days of going back every day, the Talib said: "Tell the American that if the visa has not come back by now, that this means that it has been denied."

I did an about face and marched out of the embassy wondering how Islamic the Taliban really might be, but my brother consoled me, alhamdulillah (thanks be to God) that I should go with him to his home in Hajira, Azad Kashmir. The english newspaper reported regular bombing in that area which was right on the line of control, and the artillery when we got there reminded me of the 'Nam, but the point of the story is that I learned the truth about the conflict with the Kashmiri Pandits (hindus) which is: "The hindus are cow worshippers and they were so fanatic in this belief that they started terrorizing and killing muslims for eating meat, thinking that the muslims were eating their reincarnated grandmothers", and so of course the hindus had to be driven out. Now I am told that many hindus are returning to Kashmir, and the hindus are now showing tolerance toward us muslim meat eaters so that my Kashmiris are again practicing "Kashmiriyat" (tolerance) towards them and their false worship.
