Slightly edited for clarity....

New Delhi, August 9, 2013: After todays Eid Namaz, an armed mob of 20,000 Muslims marched toward Hindus & attacked them. Many Hindus were severely injured & some are critical. While this was happening, a big mob attacked & burnt shops & houses owned by Hindus. Serious arson, looting & murders went on for a long time, until the morning Namaz. Until the afternoon there was no help from the Government. Then came police, but they were of no use. Many Hindu youth are in hospitals with bullet injuries in their arms & abdomen. In the afternoon, the Government sent the Army there, but with no orders to shoot the killers on sight. The mob went on a rampage. The Army kept on doing a flag march & the info from there is that the 20,000-strong mob even looted army weapons.

VHP International Working President Dr Pravin Togadia said, VHP demands immediate action on all 20,000 in the mob that attacked minority Hindus there. It also should be found out who really led such a big mob when there should have been security in the valley after Pakistans attacks on the LOC. Such big violence against Hindus continued all day long & how is it that nobody intervened to really protect the Hindus?

VHP also demands resignation of the J&K Home Minister for his role in the Kishtwad attacks on Hindus. Those who are injured should immediately get adequate compensation. Those whose houses were burnt should be given compensation a the market rate of the house & all materials to rebuild their houses. Hindus whose shops were burnt should be compensated for the losses of their goods & shop establishments, as well as for the loss of probable business.

In 1990, similar violent tactics were followed by the Kashmiri Separatists to kill & chase away Hindus from Kashmir. Now they have advanced, & on the border of Jammu in Kishtwad, Rajauri, such attacks have been taking place. It is the sole responsibility of the state & the Union Govt to protect each Hindu in J&K, failing which the Hon. Supreme Court should take suo motto note & order the army to shoot at sight on those who attack Hindus there.

VHP & Hindu Human Rights Commission Team assisted by a retired police officer, an eminent lawyer, other Hindu organizations & a social worker will visit Kishtwad soon as soon as the curfew is lifted. The team should be given all cooperation as Minority Commission is supposed to get. The report will be made public.

VHP, Bajrang Dal in Jammu have protested today & demanded immediate action to protect Hindus & punish the attackers.

They don't discriminate as to who the "Infidel" is anyway. Pretty much everyone who is not Muslim.

Let's not forget that not ALL religious violence is perpetrated by Muslims. Only 99% of it.

Anyone who is not a Muslim is considered an Infidel! They will rampage on everyone until they convert or are dead! UNACCEPTABLE!

In Pakistan the Muslims are known to target and rape Hindus and Christians so this does not surprise me.

What I do object to is that so many countries governments are aware of the murders, rapes, forced conversions and do nothing and say nothing. This is also true of many on this board who castigate Israel for protecting itself and will be absent from this page.

An example is that, after the prayers on Friday one day, a group of Muslims decided to kill a Hindu so the next one who walked past, they killed because they could. Why is there no outcry about this, why no objections? Is it because it is no longer PC to speak out against these atrocities so Muslims get away with it.

Debbie is right, Muslims want to kill anyone who is not Muslim, so they can take over the would, our government needs to take steps to see this doesn't happen in the U.S. instead of being afraid we will " offend: these barbaric people.

And how will our sympathizers here justify this incident?? Interesting how quiet they become in the face of undeniable atrocities.

I just read where the Buddhists are attacking the Muslims. If there is but one Creater, why is it a problem with someone else worshiping the same Creator but through one of the other Manifestations that was sent?
The Bearers of the Trust of God are made manifest unto the peoples of the
earth as the Exponents of a new Cause and the Revealers of a new Message.
Inasmuch as these Birds of the celestial Throne are all sent down from the
heaven of the Will of God, and as they all arise to proclaim His irresistible
Faith, they, therefore, are regarded as one soul and the same person. For they
all drink from the one Cup of the love of God, and all partake of the fruit of
the same Tree of Oneness.

Where is the pathetic UN? Keeping score of the dead? This is their usual approach.
WE can be outraged, but it little matters when our goverrnments do little to act toward this outrage. I'm sure Pakistan is thrilled by this latest horror.

Comrade Lenin was right only once in his life.When he said that religion was opium for the masses.
I think all religions should be globally banned as they brainwash and change people into mindless monsters.

Our lives in this world is so short, this is stupidity to kill each other in the name of anything ,land or religion, share the land it doesn't belong to anyone, religion should mean compassion and love, no God wants an human army fighting his cause. He is all powerful he can do it himself.

Unfortunately, Patricia, this IS the way Islam tells its followers to worship and honor God.

These extremists are getting out of hand. Sick extremists. So who's going \to stop them? It won't be long until they try their luck over here. The KKK got by with a lot, so what about these blokes? The world, I am afraid, has gone mad.

Senseless violence is so often associated with Islam. And there seem to be no rejection by Muslims.

Why aren't Hindus all over the world up in arms over this? What about the rest of the non-Muslim world? It seems only if some rare incident occurs against a Muslim does the world take notice, but let countless Muslims rape, torture and murder non-Muslims, hardly anyone even bats an eye.

It is encouraging to see so many people here speaking out against Islam-mandated violence. We need more voices willing to speak out against Islam without succumbing to intimidating slurs of being "racist, bigoted, intolerant, Islamophobes".

@ Hartson - the story you tell is like tuning into the end of a movie on TV and seeing someone beating someone else and saying "what a bad person", but not knowing the beginning to know the one getting the beat down at the end is the one who committed the crime at the beginning. This is the situation with the Buddhists.

Buddhist theology teaches them to be peaceful. When they react violently you can imaging how much it would take to provoke them. In comes the Muslims, who are killing Buddhists and attacking them in many ways BECAUSE ISLAM TEACHES THEM TO DO THAT. The Buddhists have the choice of getting slaughtered or defending themselves. I root for the Buddhists.

I wish the US would go into Muslim countries and protect the Christian, Sikh, and other minority population because they are always under some form of Muslim attack. But the US would have to first admit that Islam is NOT peaceful and that would be too "inconvenient." The US gov't and media would rather Christian, Hindu, Buddhist, Sikh girls get raped and murdered than admit Islam is NOT peaceful.

Pretty words Hartson .. except the cult of islam.. a multiplicity of thieves, liars and slaughterers.. has for 1400 years under the cloak of "religion"; raped, murdered enslaved , the borg converted or killed ALL manner of others to the drip of bloodied sword and the dark whisper of deceit. The BUDDHISTS HAVE BEEN SLAUGHTERED ALMOST INTO EXTINCTION previously and today are being killed and pressed again.. causing some to lose it ........ Islam is anathema to Christ ...your pretty words veil just what....???? surely the truth.

Yes indeed, when will the world wake up? Why aren't governments standing up against the extremists?
Let's see, Saudi Arabia is the world's largest oil exporter. Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, and the United Arab Emirates are in the top 10 producers also.
Could there be any connection or am I just dreaming of unicorns?

It is so tragic especially since acceptance of all religions is encouraged. I wonder what is wrong with all that hate. But, looking at history, it's been going on and on and on. Don't people get tierd of it. Don't people understand that on is no better than the other. Argh. Not a good world for our children.

Noted, tweeted, shared, tweeted, shared. We have to work together to stop the hate, but before that can happen everyone must recognize the hate and where it is coming from.

Instead of treading softly and try to find excuses for sick Muslim behavior the world should unite and teach those bastards a big lesson.
