            Go back to your roots- Kashmiri Pandit. Learn how through rape by marauding Islamic barbarians Muslims were born. ….eighty million were slaughtered and millions of women were raped… was standard practice for Islamic warlords like Ghori and Ghazni to unleash the m rape and enslavement of hundreds of thousands of women after the slaughter of all males. An extremely large percentage of Muslims in South Asia today are the progeny of forcible conversions and systematic rape campaigns by marauding Muslim invaders. – Dr. Younis Shaikh stani medical doctor, human rights activist and freethinker.
