    The reality is that the Muslims in the Kashmir are practically illiterate other than the Madrassa education. The truth is also that the Muslims in India still follow the 7th century Islamic ideologies of Jihad/Sharia which preaches hate towards other religions, Muslims send their children to Madrassas instead of regular schools, Mullahs in Madrassas radicalize children with Islamic ideologies, and today's world these Madrassa educated Muslims in J-K have no future because they can't get any jobs other than committing terror/killing and blame Hindus. It is also true that the Muslims commit terror/killing and blame others for their misgivings.

        There are many militants from LET, ISIS, AL- Qaeda, Talibsns and many more are practicing their marks on Indian security forces. Very soon they will enter Kashmir from this side and PLA from other side of Kashmir.
