You say Hinduism has already defined Islam

Reader comment on item: [The Issue of Compulsion in Religion:] Islam is What Its Followers Make of It
in response to reader comment: Islam V Hinduism

Regarding Idol worship:
If you had a photo of your grandfather who has died, then you are just having a piece of paper which reminds you his face. You wish to keep his photo is upto you. In olden days where there was no painting people created statues.
You don't worship THE IDOL but you worship god through the Idol.
Same as You don't see your grandfather in photo but you see a paper which reminds his love to you.

Regarding one GOD or many Gods:
Solid has counter one piece two piece, one person or two person.
Liquid cannot be counted as one liquid or two liquid. (also Gas)
Similarly god cannot be counted ONE or MANY.
Thats why in hinduism one god have so many names and so many gods combine and become one to kill a evil.

As you have mentioned Hinduism has defined a lot of your Islamic terms before hundreds of years christian era or islamic era.
Thats why it is FALSE to say Islam is the only true religion.
