Dear Hameed,

The fact is, let;s accept it that ISLAM has the bloodiest history. As an indian i am not concerned about what happened in the middlle east during the crusades or the mongol invasion. What i am concerned is what ISLAM did to a country like INDIA, and is continuing to do in this modern era as well.

Let me ask you a few queries.

Are you familiar with the loot & plunder , massacre of hindus, destruction of Hindu temples which took place under the long line of the Babaric Invaders like Babar Ghaznavi, Taimur the lame etc?? These incidents were recorded in great details by the raiders themselves ( if you are really interested then i can send you links ). What was their motivation? approximately 6000 temples were razed , plunderered and masjids were erected in most of the places... was wealth only their motivation?? lets cut the history lesson here and talk about the present.

INDIA IS A SECULAR STATE. IT IS A DEMOCRATIC STATE AS WELL .

Democracy is the rule by the majority? 85-87% OF THE POPULATION IS HINDU! i am proud that the majority LIKE MYSELF are secular and not the reverse or else your permanent residency would have been UAE.

As a muslim in India don't you enjoy more freedom and economic stability than probably most of the islamic states??

Does the state punish you for not bieng a practicing muslim or your female relatives lashed in public for not wearing a hijab or talking to strangers ?

The answer is YES for the 1st and NO for the second. Then why do majority of muslims feel alienated here or need specail laws to govern thier society?

It is this secular environment which has probably given birth to various muslim artists sportsmen and even our great former president Mr APJ KALAM. My irk is why does every issue , may it be birth control, vaccination of polio , implementing a Common Civil code and various other initiatives viewed with suspicion and rejection by majority of muslim population? When it is a secular state why do we need to demand seperate laws to accomodate ISLAM?? This is what we majority have a grudge.. we have made efforts to secularize ouselves but you havent..

Lastly, I am sure if you would have yourself stood up and spoken about some of the rubbish and idiotic comments radical muslims have made in this forum.. YOUR VOICE NEEDS TO BE LOUDER THAN THEM!

Yours Truly,

Proud Indian,

PS : Lets stick to proud indian for a while.. i can make up a false name and location but .. thats not what i am.. you can call me any name you want me , AMAR.. AKBAR.. ANTHONY.. anything.. you are welcome.
