"...the Indians cannot possibly be as barbaric as the Muslims..."

All the white settlers who were enslaved or raped, scalped and butchered in the 1700s and 1800s would probably disagree with you on that point.

I think the 'Indians' referred to here are the ones from India, not America.

And does no one here know of Christian 'militants' in India's north-east?

This may not be a credible source, but here's a link I found on Googe®

Rising Islamic And Christian Terrorism In North East

The North Eastern States of India, which have been categorically deprived of significant development during last few decades of Congress Rule, are now facing a new kind of danger. Recent upsurge of Islamic and Church-funded terrorism has given birth to possible havoc in the North eastern states. Especially Assam and Tripura have become the main victims of this kind of religious extremism and widespread terrorism.

Recently PTI published that After its failure in Kargil, Pakistan is now attempting to separate the entire northeast from the rest of India by cutting off the 'Chicken's Neck' area between northern Bengal and Assam. The task of chopping off the Chicken's Neck portion has been assigned to the Inter Services Intelligence and has been planned along the lines of the Kargil operation. It is being fully supported covertly by the Pakistani army.

The Chicken's Neck area, a narrow alley between Srirampur in Assam and New Jalpaiguri in north Bengal, connects the northeast with the rest of the country. Pakistan plans to control the area which would make it easier for them to cut off the entire northeast and also spread terrorism in other parts of India. It has been reported that to execute the operation, about 24 active Islamic fundamentalist groups have been formed in Bangladesh, Nepal and India. These groups have been trained on the pattern of the Lashkar-i-Tayyaba and Taliban militia.

Some of these terrorist groups are known as Muslim United Liberation Tigers of Assam (MULTA), Muslim United Liberation Front of Assam (MULFA), People's Liberation Front (PLF), International Liberation Army (ILA), Muslim Security Force (MSF), Liberation of Islamic Tiger Force (LITF), Muslim Security Council of Assam (MSCA), United Liberation Militia of Assam (ULMA), Minority Peoples Action Committee (MPAC), Muslim Volunteers Force (MVF), Mujahid Vahini and Jubo Command. Many of these organizations have active connection with Kashmiri Islamic terrorist organizations and enjoy financial and moral support from International Islamic fanatics like Osama Bin laden.

Assam has witnessed a sharp increase in Islamic Terrorism in last two years. On numerous occasions, Muslim fundamentalist leaders were arrested by Indian Police on account of promoting active terrorism in the state. On September 12, 98 a top-ranking leader of the All-India Muslim liberation Front (AIMLF) was arrested in Assam. The police apprehended the terrorist, Kamrul Haque Barbhuyan quite accidentally at the Jorhat railway station on September 3 for travelling without a ticket. A through checking of his belongings led to the recovery of a large number of incriminating documents including propaganda literature of the AIMLF, following which he was brought to Guwahati, where he is still under interrogation. Police reports have even linked Barbhuyan to the murder of cassette king Gulshan Kumar, as also to the serial blasts of Mumbai of 1993. The police also said that the ISI was sending batches of trainers to Assam through the porous borders to motivate Muslim youths. Some Muslim youths of Assam have also undergone training in arms in Manipur, where one or two Islamic militant groups are active.

Soon after that incident, Union Minister Lal Krishna Advani released a white paper, which detailed the grand plan of ISI in Assam. Among other things, it pointed out that the ISI wanted to use infiltrators from Bangladesh to destabilize the North East. It also provided sanctuary to Punjab terrorists in Pakistan to revive militancy there. In pursuance of its objectives, the ISI wanted to spread tentacles of terrorism not only in Jammu and Kashmir but also in Punjab, Assam and Nagaland by carrying out subversive propaganda on Islamic fundamentalist and communal lines. Today Government believes that Assam about 40-lakh illegal Bangladeshi Muslims are living in Assam alone.

Patterns of Islamic Terrorism and revealed facts about ISI's plan make it very clear that Pakistan will concentrate on North Eastern States of India in near future and will try its best to spread the same kind of mayhem and destruction that Kashmir has been witnessing for last two decades. It appears even Chief Minister of Assam has started to realize it and asked Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee to immediately initiate measures to solve the problem of terrorism in the state. Mahanta informed the Prime Minister about militant activities and steps so far taken by the state to curb militancy. The Prime Minister assured full cooperation to solve problems of the state.

In a separate incident, outlawed terrorists belonging to All Tripura Tiger Force in Tripura shot dead 17 people, including two women, injured 11 and abducted four others at Panchabati in West Tripura on November 15. The police said that the terrorists were equipped with sophisticated weapons. Suddenly the terrorists rained bullets on the people, killing seven on the spot. Several others suffered injuries, of which 10 succumbed in two government hospitals. Eleven people, most of them critical, were being treated at the G B Hospital.

It was reported that combing operations to nab the militants had been launched by the Border Security Force, Central Reserve Police Force, Assam Rifles, Tripura State Rifles and state police. The BSF had been asked to tighten vigil along the Indo-Bangla border to prevent the terrorists from crossing the border. Although Chief Minister Manik Sarker of Tripura asked the police and civil officials to make all efforts to nab the militants, earlier incidents show that the Communist Government of Tripura and Catholic Church of North East have direct connection with the terrorists belonging to All Tripura Tiger Force. The Congress and the Bharatiya Janata Party have demanded the resignation of the CPI-M-led Left Front government for their failure to curb militancy.
