in response to reader comment: mr dhimmi try it

Let me inform my friend, syed mohammad ali that nothing is more abhorrent and repulsive to non-muslims all over the world than the concept of an islamic caliphate. If there is anything sensible that the tablighees have done in their life, it is the rejection of the chimera of caliphate. In a country of the size of India, a muslim from Bangalore finds himself a complete alien in, say, Malerkotla. It is better not to speak of muslims all over the world.

That islam cannot be the binding force to hold the culturally disparate elements together was proved in 1971, when the erstwhile territory of East Pakistan, inspite of islamic identity, rejected the hateful rule of the muslim Punjabis of West Pakistan, and constituted themselves into a separate country of Bangla Desh. I wish to point out again, at the risk of being sounding repetitive, that islam is an artificial, and unnecessary, ideology forced on different parts of the world, mainly through the sword, and has nothing but brute force to keep the various peoples it has conquered to keep in its fold.

Doesn't he realise that the day the Saudis open their doors to other religious preachers, the career of islam in its very place of birth will be threatened ? Doesn't he realise the simple fact that by vehemently emphasing the fact that islam is the fastest growing religion, he is creating more trouble for the muslims themselves ? It is a fact often proved by history that an oppressive, tyrannical, megalomaniac, ideology often initially gives the impression to all concerned that it is spreading to places far and wide and is likely to become very popular before anyone realises. Until one day, the inexorable forces of history assert themselves and destroy every vestige of tyranny and oppression and restore the world to its previous state of affairs.

Lastly, Mr. ali, you may claim pride in not being a pagan idol worshipper, but it is my firm opinion that it is far better to be a pagan idol worshipper than to be a stone worshipper - as all muslims are taught to be since their birth.
