Dear Chatterjee,

There is no doubt that we both are biased towards out believes, I was bon a muslim and you may be Hindu or Christain(Sorry I dot know). From our sides we should give our arguments nicely and truly.

As far as I know and heard on various media. Out of the around 6 billion population of the world, 1.25 to 1.5 billion are muslims. Though majority is not following Islam with its true spirit. Because they have also become materalistic. The aim of a true muslim is nothing but be examplary for this world and spread the message of Islam as it is the final message of Allah for this world intul it will finish one day.

Please not majority of the population of the world is not following any religion. Christain and Jew are not following their religion at all. Although,these religions from Allah but they have changed their books. Its only Quran which is in its original shape.

Please dont quote Islam wrongly, you are free to give logical arguments but not by wrongly quoting Islam. There is no forcing of non-muslms to recite Kalma or offer prayers.

Muslims men are allowed to marry Christain and Jew ladies only. In the present state of the world Christain and Jew are not following their religion and mostly these ladies get divorce and then it becomes difficult for the children, hence Muslim scholars are advising muslims to avoid marring non-muslim women. Yes it is better that they convert to Islam before marring a muslim but without that also they may marry, so please dont missquote Hadits or Quran.

Yes you are right a muslim is not allowed to convert to any other religion. But remember it is in a pure muslim society. This is Allah's order and it has to be accepted by muslims in later and spirit. In a pur muslim society / country if muslims implement this order of Allah then why have any non-muslim has any problem with it. For the time being there is no pure muslim country as muslims have almost tought bottom but they are gradully reviving. Yet muslims are less sinner than non-mulims. We have not legalised prostitution,alcohal,gambling, sex in same gender, nudity etc etc. West has started getting its adverse effects.

Quran is a living miracle of this modern world. Perhaps you dont know. Go to Dr Zakir Naik to learn Islam. He is a gift of Allah to Indians. He has made all non-muslims speachless against Islam.

Scientifically he has proved that Quran is a living miracle. Remove curtains of biases from you mind and read and learn about Islam I promise you will be a changed person.

May Allah show you the right path.

Regards,

Hamid
