Really shocking. This brings to the fore the changes in our culture.
Instead of focusing on the positives of a religion we look at the
extremities of it and bring out our own version.

Another corruption of culture is the latest trend in Kashmir Valley
where people are using camels as "kurbani". Camel is an absolute alien
to the Valley. Rich Kashmiries utilized the present day terrorism for
their own welfare. The heavy funding from ISI and the middle east
changed the culture of the Valley. Earlier known for its Sufi version
of Islam, the Valley has today corrupted itself into a miniature
Middle East where people don long beards with khats, wear their watch
on the right hand, keep their pyjamas above their ankle and the
latest-slaughter camels as kurbani.

It is so sad to see secular, sufi muslims turning into hand
chopping/camel slaughtering zealots. The sooner we stop/reverse this
trend the better it is for all of us.
