" if god were to say that kill non-muslim where ever you find them then you would have been resting in your grave. and muslims ruled india for 1000 years and if we were to kill anybody then there would have been no hindu in india. but we know that there are almost 80million hindus".

If as you claim that the verses are not violent (they prima facie are), you have four problems:

> Alla the omniscient, why he did not make his intentions clear and unambiguous so that the followers are not becoming killing machines. So Allah himself is confused and is sending confusing signals.

> The simple solution will be to remove the verses and instantly make the followers Gandhian

> Why no such interpretation is not being given to the followers in mosques and madraqssas; on the contrary the verses are literally interpreted and the followers become fanatically frenzy, like Lal Masjid in Rawalpindi. The action at the masjid was indeed Hollywood action type.

> Why the Ahemediaas, who interpret the verses in a liberal way are being persecuted as apostates

In the case of India, it was too big for Islam to swallow and the Hindus resisted Islamic aggression. Still Islam managed to kill 60 million HIndus and demolished more than million temples. This is what the great historian has to say about the Islamic rule in India:

"The Mohammadan conquest of India is probably the bloodiest story in history. It is a discouraging tale, for its evident moral is that civilization is a precarious thing, whose delicate complex of order and liberty, culture and peace may at any time be overthrown by barbarians invading from without or multiplying within." - Will Durant

Now we are fighting the barbarians multiplying from within.
