Question

How do you feel the about killing of innocent peoples in Kashmir?

Answer

Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds; and blessings and peace be upon our Prophet Muhammad and upon all his Family and Companions.
Those who are being murdered in Kashmeer are either Kashmiri Muslims or others. No doubt that killing Kashmiri Muslims is an aggression and a grave sin.
As for non-Muslim Kashmiris they are of two types. If they are peaceful and do not support others against Muslims, they should not be killed nor oppressed in any way. But if they are invaders or non-Muslim Kashmiris who support the enemies of Muslims, they are considered as fighters and it is lawful to kill them.
Allah knows best.
