Tolerance and co-existence are inherent to islam. Your existence will be tolerated as long as you pay the jizya and submit. If you are lucky your shrines will not be razed (see the Temple Mount for an example).

Hindus will not get Kashmir land

The government of Indian-administered Kashmir has said it will revoke its decision to transfer land to a body that manages an important Hindu shrine.

News that the Amarnath Shrine Board was to get the forest land sparked days of protests by the area’s Muslim majority.

Three people were killed and hundreds injured, including police officers.

The protests were the among the biggest in the disputed Himalayan region for years, and widened to focus on pro-independence demands.


State Chief Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad said the cabinet would formally revoke the plans.

He was speaking after the shrine board’s management offered to return the land.

The state government now says it will provide all the necessary facilities for pilgrims who want to visit the shrine.

The government had said the land was needed for the construction of pre-fabricated huts and toilets for the pilgrims.

Separatist groups said the transfer of land was part of a “conspiracy to settle non-local Hindus in the valley with a view to reducing the Muslims to a minority”.

Local environmentalists also protested against the decision.

The unrest has brought back memories of widespread protests that swept the region after a separatist insurgency began in 1989.

In other words, if the muslims don’t get their way, expect more riots. Just like in France, Denmark and Lebanon.
