Islamist group tells Christian missionaries: leave Kashmir or ‘suffer the consequences’

Catholic World News - May 03, 2013

A spokesman for the United Jihad Council, a militant Islamist organization, said that Christian missionaries must leave the northern Indian region of Kashmir or “suffer the consequences.”

97% of Kashmir’s population is Muslim.

“Christian missionaries are exploiting poor and needy people by offering them financial packages for changing their religion,” charged Syed Sadaqat Hussain.

“Islam is the religion of peace and harmony that provides complete protection to minorities,” he added. “However, [the] anti-Islam activities of a few people cannot be tolerated.”
