Something I said has hit a raw nerve for Mr. Bilawal, who writes:
"peoples, hey come on problem lies with you people not with Islam and Muslims. you including Hindus and West."

NYC, London, Afghanistan, Saddam Hussein, Iraq/Iran war, Beslan, Thailand, Bali, Madrid , Chechnya , Bosnia - It's all OUR fault?

seeing you have so much insight - perhaps you can explain why there is so much conflict by Muslims against ALL their neighbours - whether they happen to be Western European, Serbs, Australian, American, Indians, Phiilipino, Thais, Russians , non-Muslim Africas etc etc? Now, what would be the common factor here??

Hmmmm, let's think.......................... wait .... ..............it's Islam!

Why are you incapable of recognising let alone taking responsibility for your own faults?

".....you have Left believing One God, took parteners for him."

You live in a third world country - you have no insight into the lives or beliefs of the diverse societies of the West. You are not qualified to comment on what people believe. In any case , it's not so matter what people believe - it's how their belifes contribute to them each having fulfilled and meaningful lives - and most importantnly, their ability to interact without conflict with other human beings.

"So you are thats why crying and crying all the time"
The only crying that is being done is when people directly affected by the violence weep at the total inhumanity Muslims inflict on other human beings, totally unecessarily. Many of us pity you. Most are wary.
Tolerance has its limits.

"and for you all who are writing against Islam and Muslims......to be perfectly Frank you are wasting your time......"

forums such as this and many other get the message out quite well. Most people have seen Muslims in action in various parts of the world. If they are not bombing each other, blowing up innocent people in crowds and rallying great hordes complaining about cartoons etc - then they are in the West, many of them having a free ride on our generous social security systems easily identified by the wearing kaftans and burqas in what are becoming no-go Muslim ghettoes.

The people who need to know more about the religio/political system behind this backward religious culture find out more facts - such as the disturbing life of its fonder, Mohammed.

So the Muslim PR campaign thus far has been a dismal failure.

"Allah (BUNJIL) has given you a precious life.......go and read His book...and think in it.....what is in it.......!!!!!!!"

You are deluding only yourself when you imagine that God's ultimate revelation to man is the Koran.

".Without facts you people are Only Jokng here."

this is the point exactly - you are perfectly free to express opinions and wishes - but don't insult other people's intelligence by presenting them as 'facts'.

"...bringing out the Prejudice and violent aggression and this is most uncivilized act and against human nature....."

What are you talking about here - strapping suicide vests on 13 year olds and getting them to murder innocent Muslim people shopping as we saw last week? Which violence do you refer to?

The predjudice is going to a foreign culture - and insisting that what you think , how you act and dress and all your customs are right - and are therefore right for the people of that culture. This attitude is doomed to failure.

"You are hating Islam...."

Islam is not truth and is not relevant to our cultures. We hate that people continue to insist that it is in , despite all the evidence against it.

"Beause is it is spreading..."

Believe me, there is no mass movement by Westerners to adopy Islam. You might like to think so - but it is just not true. people are wising up to just what a distortion it is.

"how Sad and pity on you peoples.. or you are hating because your own sons and daughters are more intelligent than you by accepting Islam....."

Our sons and daughters are not accepting Islam - becaus they are brought up to think for themselves and cherish freedom.

"you are Just destroying your life in vain hatred only..........."

hate is poisonous - as is rage - why should we posion ourselves. We don't hate our own lives. We simply don't believe in your fables. Why hate us for that?

"What I can Do, Just Allah bless you people to get the right path which is the path of Him ONLY."

Solution: you can give up thinking that what seems right to you now at this time of your life, in your particular culture, is right for everyione else in the world.

You must learn to undertsand that people have entirely different worldviews than your own. And then you need to accept that.
