    Muslims Terrorist & Trouble makers should be warned that you make problems for Hindus in Kashmir then No Muslim from Kashmir will be allowed to visit any of their shrines in rest of India. Rather they should all be chased thru the Line of Control to POK never to return. Government of India will not do anything due to protocol issues. However Hindu Organizations should take initiative to teach them a lesson. Theses MF created problems for Hindus since last 1500 years till date and grabbed more than half of the country. Recall Indian borders use to begin from Bamiyan (Brahman) Valley of Hindu Kush mountains, Afghanistan to Kolkata, India. Wake Up Hindus this the ultimate price of “SHANTI”, we Hindu paid. We will observe “SHANTI” if you don’t bother us. However if you make problems for us we will eradicate you from India. Tit for Tat. Jai Hind.
