This hypocrisy is just astounding. Those who are raising voices of indignation about conversion of people to Islam and categorizing this as 'obsession' by Muslims, do you know how much time, effort and money is being expended by Christian missionaries compared to Muslims? Christian missionaries spend considerably more money than Muslims. This has been going on for years. Christian missionaries have been sending people to every nook and corner of the world and spending billions. In contrast Muslims don't have that sort of money, also the philosophy about conversion is very different amongst Muslims compared to Christians. There are many Muslims who believe conversion is a matter of God, Muslims can only be witnesses by being good Muslims, and it is God who will do the rest. However there are those who do actively engage in conversions themselves, but the numbers are hardly anything substantial compared to that of Christians. SO WHO IS OBSESSED HERE? Tell me, hand on heart!
