in response to reader comment: Nozzi: The violent Koranic verses affect non-Muslims adversely

The following are the comparison between Hindu Scripture, part 1, The Itihasas (history) The Friendly Treatise And The Commanding Treaties:

Quran 4:90, "...So if they withdraw from you, and fight not against you, and offer you peace, then Allah has opened no way for you against them". The phrase, fight not against you, in Quran 4:90 implies that non-muslims do not fight or refuse to fight with us, muslims. The phrase, Allah has opened no way for you against them, in Quran 4:90 implies that Allah wants us to cease in fighting with them, non-muslims. As the phrase, if they writdraw from you, is mentioned in Quran 4:90 with the phrase, Allah has opened no way for you against them, it implies that Allah commands muslims not to fight against non-muslims if non-muslims do not or refuse to fight with us, muslims."

In order to prove that Hinduism contains the word, fight, and that the Holy Quran is many times much better than Hindu-Scriptures, I quote paragraphs from Hindu Scripture, Part 1, The Itihasas (history) The Friendly Treatise And The Commanding Treatise:

There are six scriptures in Hindu Scriptures, Part 1. There are Srutis-Smritis-Itihasas-Puranas-Agamas-Darsanas. The Four secular writings as subahashitas-Kavyas-Natakas-Alankaras.

The subject title: The Bhagavad-Gita:

The most important part of the Mahabharata is the Bhagavad-Gita. It is a marvelous dialogue between Lord Krishan and Arjuna on the battlefield, before the commencement of the great war Bhagavan Sri Krishna became the charioteer of Arjuna. Sri Krishna explained the essentials of Hindu religion to Arjuna. Just as the Upanishads contain the cream of the Vedas, so does the Gita contain the cream of the Upanishads. The Upanishads are the cows Lord Krishna is the cowherd. Arjuna is the calf. The Gita is the milk. The wise men are those who drink the milk of Gita.

The Gita is the most precious jewel of Hindu literature. It is a universal gospel. the Gita teaches the Yoga of Synthesis. It ranks high in the religious literature of the world. Arjuna saw befoe him his dear relatives and teaches in the battlefield. He fainted and refused to fight against then. The Lord Kirshna imparted knowledge of the self to Arjuna and convinced that it was his duty to fight regardless of the consequences. Afterwards Arjuna gave up his Moha, or delusion. All his doubts were cleared. He fought against the Kanravas and achieved victory.

The words in bold from Hindu-Scripture, Part 1, the extract from The Bhagavad-Gita, shows that Hinduism is violence since the word, fight, is mentioned in this part of the script. Not only that, nothing is mentioning here to stop Hindu from fighting. As compared to Quran 4:90, at least our Holy Quran does prevent muslims to fight if non-muslims cease in fighting. Thanks for your script that we realise your religion is not advicing for peace but mentioning to have battle until it is won.

I do not mention other part of your Hindu-Scripture since i respecft your religion. If I would list out all the paragraphs from Hindu-Scripture, part 1, I am afraid many muslims, Hinduism, Buddhism, Christians and etc., will have a good debate about your religion. No point for me to bring out the discussion of the rest of the Script since I do not believe what is mentioning here but to extract the above paragraphs since you have debated with me the word, fight, in Quran. The above paragraphs show that the word, fight, is mentioned. Not only that, it is mentioned that they would fight until they achieve victory. However, Quran mentions that we must stop fighting when non-muslims start to stop fighting with us and this proves that Hinduism is even terrible than Quran.
