Brother.....
Thanks for your polite reply.Believe me i was thinking your reply would be full of exasperation. My writing has not gone futile. Anyways,its your freedom of thinking that i am a murkh (Muslims are murkh).Yes ..I believe a Muslim who does not have tolerance for other religions is a murkh because Islam teaches us tolerance.Comming to Mahabharata ..yes.. it is indeed a book which has a lesson for hummanity to follow.(kindly refer to my previous comment with out spite against Islam)

I gave you the example of Mahabharata to make you realise that it is easy to misquote things out of the sacred religious scriptures.My duty being a Muslim is to eradicate your misconceptions against Islam and it is my humble request to you not to judge islam according to its followers.When you wrote your previous article which you had written in reply to a "muslim" saying that since muslims are living in non muslim country they should leave this great country.Replying him you did not exempt any Muslim living in India for something which was written or done by a single individual.Sorry to say that is what is being done by many non muslims.You could have simply replied him that if this was the case then Islam would have never flourished in all corners of the world .Prophet(pbuh) stood in Mecca .He was the only Muslim and the whole world including the people of Mecca along with the family of Propher(pbuh) were non muslims.If he had thought so then mecca would have never been the sacred place for Muslims.

You can bring a great change to Muslims by quoting(Not misquoting) the references of the Qur'an as to what it has for Muslims and humanity .If any person (Hindu or Muslim)is writing fooling articles as you have quoted above one ( which you were furious with) , we can stop his/her hatred and spite against any particular religion by simply letting him/her know as to what his religion has to say.You should go through Qur'an.Read the Qur'an and see its beauty.YOU will get the fragrance of peace and love,tolerance and truth.It would cost you only 200-500 rupees in the market to buy a copy of Qur'an.If you can get the truth of any religion only at the cost of 200-500 rupees ,it is not a business of downfall but of benificial fruits...
Thanks
