Yes, I am a convert to Islam. No, the Hindus are not Pagans. I respect the Hindu religion. I respect it because it came from God. I respect all religions as branches from the religion of God, Islam (submission to his will alone). Muhammad is not a false prophet. His message is from God. He is the last messenger of God. We have to foster respect, peace, honor, tolerance, and justice between all religions.
Not all events concerning Muslims throughout the world. Peace goes to all who want and love peace.
Invitation is better than compulsion. There is no compulsion in religion. Everyone is invited. Muslims are not obsessed about converting anyone. I don't see many Muslims going around trying to convert anyone. It is a joy to see people coming to the truth and being blessed with Islam but that is not validating for me of my beliefs. My faith is very strong in Islam.
1. Can Islam survive without violence? I know the answer is no!
Yes it can. Islam (submission to the will of God)
2. And do you condone terrorism as a means of spreading Islamic influence?
No, terrorism should never be condoned under any means.
3. I'm sure you would beg to differ.
Yes, I beg to differ.
