JAMMU, INDIA, July 1, 2001: Despite the fact that more than 30,000 people have been killed in Kashmir since 1989 due to the state's Muslim majority protesting being part of Hindu India, religious fervor by Hindus is still predominant. It is expected that over 100,000 Hindu pilgrims will make the journey from Jammu to the Amarnath Cave. Situated in the Himalayan mountain range, an icy stalagmite is worshipped in this cave as a murthi of Lord Siva. The state has upped security personnel to 15,000 to guard the devotees during the month-long pilgrimage.
