Dear kafir,

I am not convinced with your presentation on islam, all people here think that islam needs to reform itself in order to survive in the 21st century. But i say that islam does not believe in reformation it believes in transformation, islam itself is a reformer.

Islam is a revolution against evil for the rights of human beings present on the earth.you say that islam leads you in darkness,islam does not give women their rights,islam is violent etc, but dear brother do you have any knowledge of quran or the sayings of prophet mohammed(pbuh). i think that you are writing whatever that is coming to your mind.who says islam does not give women their right , buy an english translation of noble quran and read chapter number 4 (al-nisa{the women})

it says about the rights of women in islam. it is true that islam allows you to have more than one wife but the condition is you must treat them equally and it is totally up to the individual to marry either one or two,the limit is four. you can marry for the second time if your first wife is dead or if she is sick and is not able to take care of the children but it is totally up to the individual. if the husband is able to take care of the children and the house he will not marry.

the second thing you have written is islam preaches violence, dear brother islam is an arabic word which is derived from the word "salam" it means peace and islam means "peace aquired by submitting your will to god" it is a misunderstanding that islam teaches violence. islam is the most peaceful religion.

you all non-muslims believe that islam is a religion of terrorist you believe this because you believe the media (cnn,bbc,etc etc) but brother have a look at the quran it says "woe to those who spread mischief on this earth"it allows you to fight only when your security is threatend it does not allow muslims to unnecessarily kill people.

i would give an example from india when it was conquered by muslims,the first king of delhi sultanate came to power after defending delhi from mongols(at that time mongols were non-muslims) after his coronation he asked the ulamas in his court that if he can take the title of jihadi as he had strived and struggled to protect his nation from a non-muslim force,the ulamas agreed with him but after he refused saying that his intention was only self-glorification.the mughals who conquered india in 1526 came to india not for spreading islam but for glorifying themselves.

if their intention were to spread islam then there would not have been a single hindu left in india. islam spread in india only due to sufis and other arabs who migrated to india for spreading islam(my great great grand father was one).and your other allegation was that quran is unscientific as it says "the skulls who are thinking" dear brother do not be so foolish don't you know what lies beneath the skull.

i donot have any idea where you got this verse from but i believe that this is a kind of english the translator must have written, for more information on islam go to islamic research foundation. another allegation that you made is islam is backward. i know that many muslims are living under grinding poverty and many muslims are uneducated but all this is not because of islam it is because of corrupt governments prevelent in muslim countries that i think are probably sponsored by USA and EUROPE

islam argues its believers to gain knowledge even if ti is from a non-muslim,when the non-muslims were captured after the battle of badar the muslims asked for their knowledge in return of their freedom, and many non-muslims were freed this way.also islam is the greatest reform and prophet mohammed(pbuh) the greatest liberator of all times,the freedom and rights which islam gave to women came to europe only after the rennaisance and islam reduced slavery 1429 years ago which was abolished in europe only in 19th century.

many muslims use to buy slaves and set them free as this gesture is reward worthy in the sight ALLAH(swt).so my dear brother you see islam is a revolution against evil a struggle aginst opression and a complete code of life,it purifies your material aspiration and promotes brotherhood among all the people present on this planet.QURAN says "come to common terms between us and you" to remove misunderstandings and make the world a better place to live.

this is what exactly is happening at daniel pipes it is a great platform for removing misconception and coming to common terms. so dear brother i invite you to explore islam and think about what you know both in a positive and negetive way, but i sincerly thank you grand kafir for presenting your doubts and allegations, as islam allows questioning. you have done a great job. keep it up!!
