Mr. Plato.. You write,

>To which problems did Muhammad give solutions. What solution did he give to terrorism? He did not give any because he claimed he had been made victorious with terror. And his faithfuls are following in his footstep. You must have enjoyed the devastation his followers are causing in Mumbai, India. Is it not wonderful that your prophet can reach out from his grave and cause terror in the hearts of pagans?<

Certainly not. No true follower of Mohammad can be happy on death of any innocent person at the hands of terrorists. Islam gives complete guideline about war and peace. Unfortunately, like other religions (offshoot or cult appeared with twisted explanation and finally brought death to innocent persons ) a cult among Muslims has embraced self-fabricated philosophy ( killing of innocent persons is a kind of Holy war ). Islam never tells to hate and kill somebody because he has different belief. Islam never says to go with bombs inside any innocent Jewish home to kill him and his family. If , you look at history hundred years before, you will rarely find any Muslim attacking innocent Jewish home with a slogan "kill infidels ( innocent Jews, Christians. Pagans… ) where you find. First, all non-Muslims should stop guessing about Islamic History or about the Quran on the basis of personal speculations.

Dhimmi no more writes,

>The simple answer is: we just do not know much about how the Qur'an was collected or edited. The story of the collection of the Qur'an as provided to us by the islamic tradtion does not make any sense.<

It is very important thing like Mr. Dhimmi many non- Muslim scholars believe and try to convince others as they speculate but it does not become truth. It looks so nonsense to think about validity of Quran when Quran has been in the memory of Muslims and in written form since God started revealing to Mohammad. ( only Quran has this distinction to other scriptures )

Islam has guideline to weaken opposition strategic assets when opposition (Muslims and non-Muslims ) has declared war (openly or secretly ) against any sovereign Muslim country. So Muslims of that state can act under the command of their leader (Caliph or emperor president ) against that opposition ( Muslim or non-Muslim ). Islam never commands to kill children, women or old people and those civilians who do not take part in fighting. But there is no Islamic command to kill innocent persons to weak opposition military strength and it does not make sense either.

Islam urges to make full preparation for any possibility of attack or defend during war. Islam urges to invent and display arsenal to put fear in opposition ( to stop them from imposing war).

I know atrocities have been committed by few Muslim commanders but they seem negligible as compared to non- Muslim nations throughout centuries. Hitler was not a god to make decision about the life of innocent Jews. He was the cause of millions of deaths. In India, in 2005 Hindu-Muslim clashes caused thousands of deaths of innocent persons. But, we can not blame religion for some person or group-related atrocities.

If, you look at history, you find, non-Muslims have been enjoying freedom under Muslim rule. Muslims defended their freedom of worship, honor, life at the cost of their own lives. You can read the statements of Jews. Non-Muslims could ask their questions to the caliph or ruler of that time.

Once, a Pagan came to Caliph Ali, holding two skulls in his hand. He asked Caliph, you Muslims believe that God gives torment of fire to those who do not believe in Him. Caliph said, yes, we believe as you are saying. The pagan said, this one skull is of my father and other is of my grand father. Both were pagans and died as pagan, so where is that torment because my hands are not burning. The Muslim Caliph said, yes, they are getting torment and told one Muslim to bring two stones. When he had brought stones, the Caliph told to give those two stones to that Pagan. The Caliph asked if they burn your hands? He said how could cold stones burn his hands? Then Caliph took those stones from the Pagan man and struck each other. Ignition came out of those stones. The Caliph addressed to the Pagan and said, you see, our God can create fire out of those cold stones. Do you think that he is unable to create torment which is invisible to human eye but actually it is happening. That Pagan guy converted to Islam.

Even in India, During Muslim reign, one Pagan came to a Muslim saint and asked him that you, Muslim, believe that devil is made of fire and how could a fire can affect another fire? The saint picked up a lump of soil and hit that Pagan with that stone. The Pagan ran to Muslim emperor and complained about that Muslim saint that instead answering his question (as he unable to answer ) that saint hit him with a lump of soil. The emperor called for the Muslim saint to make justice. When the saint had come, the emperor asked the saint about beating the Pagan and told him that he will be punished. The saint asked that punishment for what? This man asked me a question and I gave him an answer. He asked that devil can not be punished by throwing into fire as he was made of fire and fire can not affect another fire. This man was also made of soil so why did he cried with pain when he was hit by a lump of soil. That pagan embraced Islam.

You are defending a man who married a girl just old enough to be his granddaughter. And what stable life did Ayisha enjoy. The prophet was dead by the time she was eighteen. She spent another sixty or so years as a widow who was prohibited from marrying to let the prophet have the satisfaction of knowing that no other man would sleep with his favourite wife. You call that stable wedlock. You could certainly become one of Islam's great scholars.

Mr. Plato.. I am showing you great truth ( to take Mohammad as standard to bring peace and happiness in an individual and overall in the whole society ). There is no exception which can not be dealt in the light of Quran and sunnah of prophet. I have my beloved soul mate who brought me back to the true belief from atheism. My wife grand father did not have any kid and his first wife died after 19 years of his marriage. He spent twenty years lonely as widower and never looked other lady as he was very simple and loved his first wife. He was very handsome. Finally after the efforts of whole family, he was persuaded to be married for the second time. There was no lady of his age, and in family, there were so many girls than boys. Finally, they arranged his marriage with a girl and now he has four sons and four daughters. His second wife died six years ago and they both lead life happily. He is still so active and looks like in sixties. Thanks God he married and his offspring were born so I got my beloved soul mate too.

You certainly become a pedophile if you have sex with a girl below the legal age of marriage and you are older than her.

Sir, you are probably talking about those laws which can not explain that how a boy who has been making sex with girl ( two year younger to him) for many years, as he turns 18 becomes pedophile endangering a kid. Please, do not mix Laws. You live in India and I have had experience of two cultures and observed personal problems of these people more closely.

A girl who has sex when she is 6 or 7 should have her parents sent to jail.

These two kids must live on an isolated island to continue to have sex for 10 years without anyone noticing and taking appropriate action. No court in a civilized society will jail the boy if he has just attained majority.

But I never heard that parents of eight year mom were arrested. I think that they must be congratulated for bringing their daughter name in Book of Records. And many such examples prevailing in this culture.

If this does not make sense to you, it is because you are a devout Muslim and you are likely to marry off your daughter before puberty to protect Islamic morality.

Yes, instead watching my kid to face aftermath ( making- breaking relationships due to extra girls have brought havoc in this culture and people have started realizing that they need to fix life cycle of human beings along with of any species we cry for ) of such relation without wedlock I would like to engage my kids as they reach puberty and start getting attraction to opposite sex.

I will answer your other comments later.
