Danish Cartoons Protests on Indian Streets!??

This is what Yahoo reported on the violence on the cartoons. Now, I just dont get this – what the HECK has India and Indians to do with the cartoons?? So why should an ordinary Delhi-ite or Kashmiri be subjected to mindless trouble??!

The main city in Indian-controlled Kashmir came to a standstill as shops, businesses and schools shut down for a day to protest the caricatures. Dozens of Muslim protesters torched Danish flags, burned tires, shouted slogans and hurled rocks at passing cars in several parts of Srinagar.

In the Indian capital of New Delhi, riot police fired tear gas and water cannons to disperse hundreds of students from Jamia University, who chanted slogans and burned a Danish flag.

How long will this nonsense go on? And can we have a bit of introspection in the Islamic world and a bit of calm? And I will carefully and deliberately see what the regular pseudo-seculars like Shabana Azmi and Arundhati Roy have to say about these hooligans from Jamia-Milia? I can just only imagine what it would have been like if some group from DU had done such demostrations and called for strikes on some cartoon of Krishna in Switzerland! These secular buggers would be all over those guys within HOURS!!
