The Ghost of Snapped Shot

Happy (Raging) Kashmir Day!

February 5 marks the day that Pakistan celebrates "Kashmir Day," which we're told is a day in which everyone marches in the streets in "solidarity" with the "freedom fighters" in Kashmir and their quest for "independence."

Of course, by "freedom fighters," we mean "terrorists."

Oh, and by "independence," we mean "annexation by Pakistan of a non-Muslim-majority territory." In fact, from what I understand from an Indian friend who grew up in Kashmir, it is some of the most fertile land in all of India—Which, of course, explains why the Islamic supremacist rabble in Pakistan feel so compelled to annex it.

With all of that in mind, let the day's festivities (and RAGE!) begin!

Aww shucks, linkage from The Anchoress? Always a pleasure, ma'am!

Kashmir


Regardless of the fact that Kashmir is, in fact, a majority Indian/Hindu population, it must be freed from "oppression."

Pakistan


It seems that all Muslim protesters hate "oppression"—which they define as being ruled by lawful non-Islamic governments. Muslim dictatorships are still no problem at all. Either way, it is important to note that Jamat-e-Islaami is an Islamic-supremacist party that seeks nothing less than the creation of a world-wide Islamic caliphate.

Compare and Contrast


"One of these... is not like the other."

Here is how Republic Day—which is essentially "India Day"—is celebrated. See if you can tell the difference between the two events.
