"Reply to your Question is very Simple.Please keep your Head cool. Read the History of Muslim Empires & Regimes. Most of such Rulers were very Just & Fair to their Non-Muslims. Islam is a Religion of Peace & Progress and Tolerance."

Ok Mr Muhammad, i will not trouble you on religious controversies..( Plato is on it so i will be out ). No, lets discuss on Islam being a peaceful , progressive religion and Tolerant Religion.

Peaceful? Dear Mr Mohammad. I had mentioned in my earlier posts that major conflicts have a common factor - islam , that negates your claim that islam is a religion of peace.

Progressive ? how many islamic countries can you claim to be on developed or developing nations list? how many scientists have this great religion produced?? please answer in context to the 1.5 billion of its followers. compare that to the scientists of other faiths.. jews for eg. and you will get your answer.

Tolerant? hmmm.. please ask why the population of other faiths is decreasing day by day in Muslim countries and why islam grows in democratic setup..

"Read the History of Muslim Empires & Regimes. Most of such Rulers were very Just & Fair to their Non-Muslims."

I dont want to get into details but i hope you read some of the biographies of Taimur the Lame, Mohammad Ghazni, Babur and hordes of muslim invaders who had looted , plundered and destroyed the indian culture. please read with am absolute cool head and answer me what was the reason mughals ruled and ravaged india for 750 years. It was sheer grit and determination of the indians who weathered the onslaught and still retained their identity inspite of the atrocities. Please let me know any king apart from Akbar and tipu sultan who were " benovalent and peaceful". Also if your faith is tolerant then why are there widespread shia-sunni conflicts?? why are the ahemaddis and bahais prosecuted in muslim countries? the list goes on ..

"Your Religion is for you and My Religion is for me. I don't fight with you to accept my Religion.There were or are still many Muslims in the World, who changed their Religion by studying the Holy Quran only. Nobody forced them to become Muslims."

is it? i so hope that the dreamers of "Dar ul Islam" & "Dar ul Harab" also would share you views. There are other ways to convert people by not allowing them to freely practice thier religion. Impose strictures as is done in islamic countries. What is the otheroption? convert.. Thats what happens.

"If you want to learn, I will write in a seperate letter in the future but have Respect for the great Prophet of God- Allah. Many Indian Scholars including Mahatma Gandhi, Dr. Ramkrisnan-past President of India have Hightest Love & Respect for Prophet Muhammad for his Contribution to this World

i will wait for your post.

regards,

Proud Indian
