A day after AIMIM Chief Asaduddin Owaisi spoke about the “Muslim soldiers killed in the Sunjuwan attack,” the Indian Army on Wednesday reiterated that it is above religion. “We do not communalise martyrs, those making statements don’t know the Army well,” General Officer Commanding-in-Chief Northern Command Lt. Gen. Devraj Anbu said, without naming the Hyderabad MP.

Addressing a press conference, the officer also added that when the enemy fails to hit target at borders, it turns towards army camps. “Enemy is frustrated and is trying softer targets,” he said. He also said that the increasing number of youth joining militancy in the valley is a cause for concern. “It is time those who join militant ranks and those who support them understand that it benefits nobody and only brings hardships into the lives of the common man,” he added.

Adding that social media is one of the factors for increasing terror in the valley he said, “Its (social media) engaging the youth at a large scale, and I think we need to focus on this issue.”

The army commander also added that terror outfits like Jaish-e-Muhammad (JeM), Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) and the Hizbul Mujahideen (HM) are “operating hands in glove in the valley and other parts.” “There’s no differentiation, they keep jumping from one Tanzim to other. Anyone who picks up an arm and is against the state, is a terrorist and we’ll deal with him,” he added.

AIMIM chief Owaisi had raked up a controversy on Tuesday after he slammed those questioning patriotism of Muslims. “Out of the seven killed in Jammu, five were Kashmiri Muslims. However, nobody is saying anything now. This should be a lesson to those questioning the loyalties of Muslims and call them Pakistanis. We are laying down our lives for you,” he said.

Commenting on Owaisi’s remark, Congress leader Sandip Dikshit said, “Muslims contribute towards nation just like anyone else. Outfits say Muslims are anti-nationals & don’t love the nation. It’s almost symbolic that if you are in the Army, you are a nationalist. I think that is why Owaisi Ji had to say that,” reported news agency ANI.

    Owaisi was addressing Feku Modi and Bigoted RSS, the prominent Muslim baiters of Hindustan. He does not seem to have brought the Army into the picture.

      Humans will accept new version by their free will and it is the nature since beginning. No version of religion will last till end. Humans always filter and check the version for good social life. Sharia law is being slowly accepted personally if not officially. Cutting hands in case of bank robbery, Killing in public for Rape, and whipping in public in case of unmarried consensual are becoming necessity of present time to control crime and maintain peace in society. Humans will surely accept the new version.

        It is deplorable that Sandip Dik son Of "famous" Sheila Dik speak on behalf of a known anti national character like Owaisi.Of course you cannot expect anything from a sickular party member.Sandip has to be compensated as even Owaisi will not be able to furnish such a clear explanation of his uttering.

          How fundamentalist Islam progressively takes over countries. In Dr. Peter Hammond’s book, “Slavery, Terrorism and Islam,” documents the way Muslims slowly develop a presence in various countries and as their population numbers build, become more aggressive and assertive about Sharia law. “Islam is not a religion, nor is it a cult. In its fullest form, it is a complete, total, 100 percent jiahdi system of life,”. “Islam has religious, legal, political, economic, social, and military components. The religious component is a beard for all of the other components.” Islam can never be peaceful and secular. Their takeover of a country, refers to as “Islamization,” begins when Muslims reaches a critical mass, and they being to agitate for various privileges. Free, democratic societies like India, USA, France, etc. are particularly vulnerable. “When politically correct, tolerant, and culturally diverse societies agree to Muslim demands its over. The country has given in to Islamic Terrorism.

            When the Muslim population remains under 2 in a country, they will be seen primarily as a peace-loving minority and not as a threat to other citizens. This is the cur situation in: United States — Muslim 0.6 Australia — Muslim 1.5 Canada — Muslim 1.9 China — Muslim 1.8 Italy — Muslim 1.5 Norway — Muslim 1.8 As the Muslim population reaches 2 to 5 , they begin to recruit from ethnic minorities and disaffected groups, within prisons and street gangs. This is happening in: Denmark — Muslim 2 Germany — Muslim 3.7 United Kingdom — Muslim 2.7 Spain — Muslim 4 Thailand — Muslim 4.6

              “From 5 percent muslims population on, they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their percentage of the population,” . “For example, they will push for the introduction of halal (clean by Islamic standards) food” and increase pressure on supermarket chains to feature such food on their shelves — along with threats for failure to comply. This is happening in: France — Muslim 8 percent Philippines — 5 per Sweden — Muslim 5per Switzerland — Muslim 4.3 per The Netherlands — Muslim 5.5 per Trinidad Tobago — Muslim 5.8 per Soon they begin to apply pressure to allow Sharia law within their own communities (sometimes ghettos).

                “When Muslims approach 10 percent of the population, they tend to increase lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions,” “In Paris, we are already seeing car-burnings. Any non-Muslim action offends Islam, and results in uprisings and threats, such as in Amsterdam, with opposition to Mohammed cartoons and films about Islam.” These tensions are seen on a regular basis in: Guyana — Muslim 10 per India — Muslim 17.4 per Israel — Muslim 16 per Kenya — Muslim 10 per Russia — Muslim 15 per The violence increases when the Muslim population reaches 15- 20 percent. “After reaching 15-20 percent, nations can expect hair-trigger rioting, jihad militia formations, sporadic killings, and the burnings of Hindu Temples, Buddhist Temples, Christian churches and Jewish synagogues,”

                    After 80 percent muslims, expect daily intimidation and violent jihad, some State-run ethnic cleansing, and even some genocide, as these nations drive out “infidels,” and move toward a 100 percent Muslim society, which has been experienced to some degree in: Bangladesh — Muslim 83 per Egypt — Muslim 90 per Gaza — Muslim 98.7 per Indonesia — Muslim 86.1 per Iran — Muslim 98 per Iraq — Muslim 97 per Jordan — Muslim 92 per Morocco — Muslim 98.7 Pakistan — Muslim 97 per Palestine — Muslim 99 per Syria — Muslim 90 per Tajikistan — Muslim 90 per Turkey — Muslim 99.8 per United Arab Emirates — Muslim 96 per

                    A 100 Muslim society will theoretically usher in their version of peace — the peace of ‘Dar-es- am’ — the Islamic House of Peace. “Here there’s supposed to be peace, because everybody is a Muslim, the Madrassas are the only schools, and the Koran is the only word,” such as in: Afghanistan — Muslim 100 Saudi Arabia — Muslim 100 Somalia — Muslim 100 Yemen — Muslim 100 Dr. Hammond observes this Islamic ideal is seldom realized. “Unfortunately, peace is never achieved, as in these 100 states the most radical Muslims intimidate and spew hatred, and satisfy their blood lust by killing less radical Muslims, for a variety of reasons.” “It is important to understand that in some countries, with well under 100 Muslim populations, such as France, the minority Muslim populations live in ghettos, within which they are 100 Muslim, and within which they live by Sharia law,” he states.
