Your comments: "Take hinduism for example; there are so many gods you don't even understand who or what to worship, it's such a complex religion. And any way you have to worship idols that YOU made, you feed them, clothe them, bathe them and then you worship them?" Please read the below 'proud american bengali muslim': "Greater is their trouble whose minds are set on the unmanifested; for the goal, the unmanifested, is very hard for the embodied to reach" From The Bhagavad Gita, Ch.12, Verse 5 "Constituted as we are, we need something concrete to fix our minds on and stir our imagination before we can think of subtler ideas".

Therefore for purposes of meditation and other spiritual practices for less advanced aspirants, the scriptures provide more concrete representations of Reality, which are within their reach.. HINDUISM is actually not religion, it is way of life and the law which governs, it is science which explains our true human nature. It is also explained in HINDU scriptures that humans are ignorant of their facts and just do not want to accept as they are, like you 'Proud American Bengali Muslim' just because you are a muslim and have embraced islam you do not become pure and divine and allah does not become the almighty.

You have to learn to respect other religions which existed way long before islam could exist. If islam is a true religion of peace then why is that we do not see the peaceful side of islam in this world. You said you are a bengali muslim then you must be knowing what happened to 3 million bengali hindus in banladesh, they were manslaughtered by the islamic radicals of bangladesh and pakistan(pakistani army).
