India's (bad) experiences with Islam

Reader comment on item: [Fixing] Islam's Image Problem

Submitted by sud voly (United States), Aug 18, 2003 at 13:23

In india, muslims have their own personal law i.e. the law of the land in matters of marriage, divorce,inhereitance etc doesn't apply to them, instead islamic sharia law does. Muslims took to the streets and forced a 'secular' govt to overturn through legislation a supreme court verdict on this matter. Muslims also steadfastly refuse to abide by family planning norms, desperately needed given India's burgeoning population situation; their extremist organisations in the guise of charities funnel funds, literature, arms and leadership to islamic terror in India (banned groups SIMI, the deobandis etc); peace-loving muslims push-out 300,000 hindu pandits with death-threats out of kashmir valley making them refugees in their own country; muslims vote en-bloc thereby giving themselves poitical leverage disproportionate to their numbers; the list goes on. Any one protesting muslim action comes undr fire from both secular-liberals and islamic extremists at once. Muslim women are caged inside veils and not permitted contact with non-muslims while muslim men roam around flashing modernity in clothes and attitude (trying to prey on kafir women perhaps?). Every non-muslim woman who marries a muslim is converted to islam (another neat ploy to rake up their numbers i guess)... There seems to be a coherent (and sinister?) pattern in spreading islamism throughout the world and India has been its test-case for decades now. The rest of us coming together to recognise this threat for what it is, is humanity's only hope before it becomes too late.
a very concerned citizen of India.
