  1. Problem is not there in kashmir it’s problem with our leaders that not dealt this agitation with tough hands. Had anybody printed any news what the china is doing with Muslims in china. They demolished mosques and imposed restrictions on five time prayer.Pakistan use to bark on the name of Islam against India and where beggar Pakistan is standing as far as Chinese Muslims are concern. One more thing where there is 50% population of muslims they use to start jihad and start saying to implement sarriyat law. Every muslim country where there is sarriyat law. Law and order situation is worst. Every country where there is Muslim majority other religions are in danger because Muslims are highly in tolerant. So in a nut shell Muslims are jehadi, terrorist and they should be dealt sticky and even if necessary impose restrictions on them to maintain national integrity. Every where in this world 97% of the terrorist belong to one and only one religion that is Islam. Muslims are the biggest threat for peace in the world. If Muslims want to be part of development they should leave there jihadi thinking and should start modern education instead of getting education from madrassa. Leave it even the 9/11 attack was performed by well educated engineer so it’s not problem with education but with the religion so if kashmiris want peace in valley they should embrace their original religion that is Hinduism other wise they will suffer more with this type of pseudo religion which is so called islam

    • You Indian Dog , Idol Worshiper Made by your own Hand , you know nothing about Islam. So don’t Bark without studing Islamic Books about Islam Religion. Muslims are not United that’s why Dogs like you are Barking.
