              Kashmiris in Azad Kashmir, tonight, when you sit down at your dinner table to eat nutritious cow meat, thank your brave soldiers who fight and kill irrational cow worshipping hindoo pandits, brahmins, gau rakshaks on the border in order to secure and preserve your right to eat cow meat. Your right to choice of food and quality life comes at the cost of brave soldiers' lives.

                  The root cause of 1947 India-stan parion, hindu-muslim riots, macres is the hindu ban on cow slaughter.

                            moral of story is: if you want to eat cow meat you must kill hindoo gau rakshaks.

                                    Jawans are fighting for and on behalf of cow worshiping pandits, brahmins, and gau rashaks only in order to prevent Kashmiris from eating cow meat. If stan ocuupies all of Kashmir, then Kashmiris will start eating cow meat, which is a horror for brahmins and pandits... So the war goes on...and Jawans are killed, not martyred.
