Skip to comments.Why Islamic Extremists Hate India

In the current conflict in Afghanistan, India does not have a single soldier operating under NATO command. India is not part of the coalition the United States and its allies have put together to aid the Afghan governments efforts to defeat the Taliban. In fact, India has turned down proposals within India and in the U.S. that it should participate in peacekeeping efforts in Iraq or Afghanistan. And yet, suicide bombers have struck the Indian Embassy in Kabul once again. In 2008, nearly 58 people died, including three Indians. On Friday, the toll was smaller, though the device used was more sophisticated...
There are several reasons why India merits such special attention from the terrorists...
The immediate plausible reason is that Indias development assistance in Afghanistan legitimizes the local government and, in its small way, helps the NATO win hearts and mind in Afghanistan...
There is also deeper animosity. When the Soviets invaded Afghanistan, India initially criticized the Soviet action, but then stopped doing so, once the occupation was in place...
Then there is the Indian soft power, which can corrode the kind of austere lifestyle the Taliban would like to impose again in Afghanistan. Afghans like Bollywood films Jon Lee Andersons reporting from Afghanistan after the fall of Kabul for the New Yorker magazine showed how young Taliban conscripts carried photographs of Bollywood stars, and some even played Bollywood songs on their cassette players...
But more than anything else, India is a danger because by its pluralistic nature it is a real threat for Islamic extremists. Not only does India have the worlds third-largest Muslim population (Pakistan finally overtook India recently), despite domestic differences with the majority Hindus, Indian Muslims have remained loyal to the Indian state, and have fully embraced democracy.

submit, convert or fight for your freedom from Islam.
It is simple, they hate everyone but themselves. They even hate muslims who are different.
India and Pakistan are enemies because of religion. When the partition occurred in 1947, about 1,000,000 people died in communal religious riots and massacres.
In India Muslims and non-Muslims hate and fear each other for good reason. Ask any Indian acquaintances you may have!
if extremists hate everyone why dont they stay home....ha! cause they cant make anymoney killing at home
You are correct, ever since the partition there have been outbreaks of violence, rioting, and murder between Hindus and Muslims in India.
Some Indians I’ve talked with believe the “experiment” of Pakistan should end, because the Muslims there seem unable to control or govern themselves.
Okay, they may hate and fear each other and it’s because of religion, but do you believe, as the article states, that the Muslims living in India have embraced their democratic form of government, and to that extent have assimiliated, or not?
Not just India but everybody.
Maybe they are afraid the Hindus will quit killing Christians and start killing Muslims.
They ‘assimilate’ the same way they do whenever they’re a minority. They’re biding their time to get big enough to overthrow the majority and impose the hellish way of islamic life on everyone.
It’s confusing trying to wrap my brain around some of this stuff going on over there. I was reading up on some history of Afghanistan before to try to understand the lines that led to where they are today. You definitely can’t tell the players without a scorecard.
I came across the story of the Massacre of Elphinstone’s Army. Nasty.
A Muslim is a Muslim is a Muslim.
The Indian Government keeps their thumb on the Jhadists much to the chagrin of the Pakistan (Muslim)people.
global jihad bump
amd John Lee ANderson is an ultra ultra leftist as*****e
>>> No Indian I’ve talked to believes this <<<
It must be some kind of subtle Indian political humor, because I’ve heard it more than once. That’s the reason I mentioned it, it’s a bit exceptional and surprising.
You obviously have not read any news stories this past summers about Hindus killing Christians. See: http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,455066,00.html
One of many stories. Do you happen to be a Democrat?
