Reader comment on item: A Democratic Islam?

Submitted by MOHAMMED (Saudi Arabia), May 26, 2008 at 11:00

All the people who write their comments here and try to paint a bad image of islam are without any or little knowledge about islam. they hate islam because they fear that if islam spreads they will not be able to enjoy all those things which are against humanity,they fear that they will not be able to oppress people for their material aspirations.there are many things which will be abolished if islam spreads and quran is the medium to judge.

first of all interest will be prohibited, homosexualty will be prohibited, prostitutrion will be prohibited, nudism will be prohibited,oppression against innocent people will be prohibited,pornography will be prohibited,discrimination on the grounds of caste,religion,race,color will be prohibited,indiscriminate felling of trees ande killing of animals worldwide can be countered, drinking of alcohol which yeilds dangerous results will be prohibited,

usage of drugs which are bad for the health of individual as well as they are a really bad influence for children and teenagers,they will be prohibited and pollution of water, air and land as well as sound can be countered.so all those who are against a peaceful world and who are under the influence of greed,material aspiration and those who use women as an object of entertainment, fear the spread of islam.

the message of islam is the same as of all the other major religions. Allah says to be good with your fellow men,not to spread mischief on the earth and care about the poor people.I can say with confidence that if all the people present on the face of this planet read the noble quran and read the holy bible,the torah and the vedas then there will be no non-muslim living on this planet.islam is the ultimate way of attaining peace and bringing prosperity and eradicating poverty.also islam can counter incurable diseases like aids and other stds,when illegal sex and prostitution is prohibited then in no way will the aids epidemic spread.

many people target islam only by saying that muslims are violent people and even the quran says to kill the non-muslims wherever they find them,but they fail to mention the quotes from then quran which says so.the verse in the quran which says "kill the non-muslims wherever you find them" is in chapter number 9 verse 7,but often people quote only this verse number seven because in the preceeding verses they find the answer to their allegation, the verse was revealed to prophet mohammed(pbuh) in the battle ground and allah says in chapter 9 verses 1-7 that do not fear fight for the security of you and your families.

he also says that if the non-muslims are ready to make peace with you then make peace and even protect them and their families.imagine the US army general saying be kind with those viatnamese during the time of the war then people would have asked his removal,so at the time of war he too ordered his troops to kill the viatnamese and will it make any sense if he gives the same order now? so when say something you should say it in the context and not out of the context.

also many people say that islam doesn't give women their rights,this is also a misconception about islam,islam is the only religion in the world which has elevated the status of women in the society,it is the only religion which gave them the right to inherit,right to choose and right to equality and the west gave this rights to women only after the renaissance.but even after giving proofs people here continue to hate islam.

coming to the point that muslims are violent then i say that christians are more violent than muslims as they have raged religious crusades in the era of renaissance and even continue to do so. ...
