Some people got mad about the quran desecration and "protested" by burning a protestant (Christian) school, government buildings and an effigy of BHO, throwing stones at government vehicles, anti USA and anti India chants etc..
maybe over 100 injured.

Unfortunately a police man was also killed when he was run over by a truck.

found the story here, there must be more. there is video as well

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-south-asia-11280132

It doesn't get much play but in india the Hindu religion is just as bad as the moslem religion when it comes to persecution of christians. Christian churches get destroyed and christians killed over there by hindu's all the time. My dad spent a short time over there as a missionary and was threatened by the hindu's for spreading christianity.
Link Posted: 9/14/2010 10:21:09 AM EDT
Kashmir is a disputed area that India and Pakistan have been killing each other over for some time, the shooting deaths, although justifiable will give them more fuel.
What I find interesting is that these people get so raging and insanely angered about the book being torn or burned that they get themselves killed.

India is Hindu, Buddhist, Sikh and Jain, (these have their origin there) India is also called "Hindustan" some may use the word Hindu to mean the people of Hindustan and the people of those faiths that have origin in India (Hindustan) maybe this use is for political reason more than religious ID.
India also has a fairly large Muslim population (13%?) Christians are about 2% (?) Both of these religions are foreign to India.
India does have its Hindu hard liners and extremists, they may be more nationalist than simply religious, seems their activity is mostly in the more poor areas, but that is another thread/subject entirely.

5 or 10 years back, I remember some Muslims in India blew up or burned a Hundu shrine of some kind. Pissed off Hindu's stopped a train full of Muslims, and burned them all. I think it was over 200 dead after the Hindu's were finished. They don't screw around over there.

The BIG difference is that Hindu persecution is pretty much confined to India, wheras, Islamic Jehad is world wide...

Never mind that the people got shot during a riot, burning a school and other buildings etc..

"That's why I was so sad when I read about the Buddhas of Bamiyan, 2,000-year-old Buddhist masterpieces in the center of Afghanistan including the world's tallest standing Buddha measuring 50 meters (165 feet). They were blown up in 2001 by the Afghanistan's Taliban. I just today heard about them. They were destroyed a few years ago. Apparently, appeals for their preservation came from Germany, Thailand, Japan, Sri Lanka, United States, France, Iran, Pakistan, Russia, India and the old UN Secretary General Kofi Annan, but I never heard about it when it was happening. Weren't they amazing looking? The Taliban regime decided to blow up the statues with dynamite because they were deemed "offensive to Islam" but really, they have nothing to do with being offensive to Islam; they were simply Pre-Islamic art that belonged to the Afghan people and to the entire world.

Here is a quote about the destruction of the Buddha statues that I got from CNN:
"Muslim countries like Egypt, which has preserved its ancient pre-Islamic monuments as a point of pride, condemned the edict from Taliban leader Mullah Mohammed Omar that led to the statues' destruction. "They should understand that destroying those statues is not going to serve anything," said Zahi Hawas, who oversees the plateau holding the great pyramids outside Cairo. "They are not helping them but are making bad publicity about Islam –– and Islam has nothing to do with what is happening in Afghanistan."

So now the ancient Buddhas in the Bamiyan province of Afghanistan are gone forever. It's especially sad because they had nothing to do with the war or the Taliban regime. I always get sad when I travel to a place that has been recently rebuilt after being ruined by war because the ruined areas contrast to much with the untouched areas of the country. Going to Hiroshima after seeing Kyoto was incredible –– Hiroshima is so newly built and seems almost strangely clinical compared to Kyoto and its old castles and gorgeous temples and shrines. Afghanistan is such a rich country in so many ways. I'm sad that the Bamiyan Buddhas were detroyed and I'm sad that it's still being occupied. What can we do, though..."

It is the other way around. (well, not the insurgent part bu the taking care of )

The Muslims conquest of India has been called the bloodiest in history.(not sure how accurate, but it seems it was extreme)
Hindu Kush means Hindu Slaughter.

"The Bahmani sultans (1347-1480) in central India made it a rule to kill 100,000 captives in a single day, and many more on other occasions. The conquest of the Vijayanagar empire in 1564 left the capital plus large areas of Karnataka depopulated. And so on."

some interesting reads on the subject.
