Maybe the Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf should stop by the Kashmir Valley on his U.S. taxpayer-funded tour and explain to these Islamic supremacists how they’re getting their religion all wrong, wrong wrong. “Embrace Islam or leave Valley, Sikhs threatened,” by M. Saleem Pandit for the Times of India, August 20 (thanks to all who sent this in):
SRINAGAR: Sikhs in the Kashmir Valley have received anonymous letters from Islamic militants asking them to either embrace Islam and join the protests against civilian killings or pack up and leave the Valley. The 60,000-strong Sikh community is the single largest minority group in the Valley.
An organisation of Kashmiri Sikhs said that several community members have received these letters. “Community members have received unsigned letters at various places,” said All Party Sikh Coordination Committee (ASCC) coordinator Jagmohan Singh Raina. He said the community has decided to stay put and fight these “evil designs” at a meeting in Srinagar on Thursday.
Raina quoted a letter as saying: “When you are enjoying the joys here, why can’t you share the grief and sorrow of Kashmiris as well? We know you are afraid of bullets… Hold protests inside gurdwaras or leave Kashmir.” He added, “Some letters have asked Sikhs to embrace Islam.”
Raina urged both factions of the Hurriyat, JKLF and PoK-based United Jihad Council to take serious note of the threats to maintain amity and brotherhood in the Valley….
