All you are saying since non-Muslims also create trouble in society it is quite okay for Muslims to imitate them. So why do you Muslims consider themselves holier than us?

I freely admit that non-Muslims create havoc in many places, maybe more than Muslims. But how does that make Islam the only true religion? (I know by saying this I risk your seizing upon this to holler that I am admitting that non-Muslims are badder than Muslims. The point I am making will simply go over your head).

>>Recently there was one buddhist in Singapore abused the fund in the temple and he has been sentenced to jail in somewhere March 2009.<<

And have you not heard of Catholic priests abusing boys or Hindu priests abusing the women devotees of temples? They do not do it because they are Christians or Buddhists or Hindus. They do it because a certain number of people whatever their religion will stray from normal behaviour. And how does the misbehaviour of Buddhists and Hindus make Islam into a great religion?

>>Do you know that there are violence among hindu in Singapore and yet not publicized?<<

When the Hindus go on violent sprees they do not quote the Bhagvat Geeta to justify what they do as the Muslims who invariably chant verses from the Koran in justification. So naturally we see Muslim violence as flowing from the Koran. Give me some more details about the violence (quote a news report if possible) by Hindus in your country.

>>Why do you give bad comment about our muslim religion without thinking there are riots, vandalism and etc. in other religion too?<<

If we see Hindus quoting the Vedas or the Bhuddists quoting the Dhamapada when they become violent then we will also examine their scriptures to see whether they really do incite their followers to violence like the Koran does (9:5, 9:29, 9: 111 etc.)
