    Do you also keep a count of the number of kashmiri pandits you slaughtered over the years?

    What did you say again ontop your mosques? La-illa-rasul-allah, leave kashmir, but leave your wives and daughters behind?

    And you dare portray yourselves as victims?

    You were victimes once. During the islamic invasions of India and your forced conversions. Now you are oppressors.
