Mahamahim Sri Attri Jee Maharaj,

Thanks for having some good sense prevailing upon you all. It also shows your shallow & superficial knowledge about world events and history. You are having only chauvinism in your mind & heart, which flawlessly governs you; it is the same psyche which governs a terrorist. It is history that all such type of person when face defeat either run away or start doing terrorizing acts.

You both are beyond reason and when having no answers to my genuine queries fled by abusing me & my in laws. I am very happy where I am; don't care for me, but care for your own mental health etc.

British Runnymede Trust about which I have mentioned in one of my previous post, in its report, had identified eight perceptions related to Islamophobia:

1. Islam is seen as a monolithic bloc, static and unresponsive to change.

2. It is seen as separate and "other." It does not have values in common with other cultures, is not affected by them and does not influence them.

3. It is seen as inferior to the West. It is seen as barbaric, irrational, primitive, and sexist.

4. It is seen as violent, aggressive, threatening, supportive of terrorism, and engaged in a clash of civilizations.

5. It is seen as a political ideology, used for political or military advantage.

6. Criticisms made of "the West" by Muslims are rejected out of hand.

7. Hostility towards Islam is used to justify discriminatory practices towards Muslims and exclusion of Muslims from mainstream society.

8. Anti-Muslim hostility is seen as natural and normal.

The publication "Social Work and Minorities: European Perspectives" by Johnson; Soydan; Williams [(1998) p. 182] describes Islamophobia as the new form of racism in Europe & America, arguing that "Islamophobia is as much a form of racism as Anti-Semitism, a term more commonly encountered in Europe as a sibling of Racism, Xenophobia and Intolerance."

Writer Brown and Miles (Miles; Brown (2003) p. 166) wrote that "many of the stereotypes and misinformation that contribute to the articulation of Islamophobia are rooted in a particular false assessment and understanding of Islam", one such false notion about Islam is that it promotes terrorism; this especially became prevalent after the September 11, 2001 attacks.

Now have an in-depth analysis of your posts & behaviour, which are mainly based upon misinformation fed to you through powerful media, you believed all that by mixing it with some old facts touted by interested lobbies. You never tried to educate yourself by cross checking the facts. Kindly scrutinize articles of Dr. Pipes, your posts and behaviour, posts of other miscreants, and then you will realize that each and every word you express unswervingly identifies you all as an ideologue of Islamophobia.

I am quoting British Runnymede Trust & others just because you are more influenced by those White people who wanted to present Islam in bad light, but now have glimpse of literature of Good white People.

Any way good bye.
