in response to reader comment: Amin Riaz: Something more for you to have a belly laugh

FROM YOUR OVERWHELMING CHOICE OF USING INDIA AS AN EXAMPLE - ICONCLUDE YOU ARE PROBABLY INDIAN OF HINDU ORIGIN. I HAPPED TO BE A MUSLIM OF INIDIAN ORGIN. CONVERTS FROM HIDUISM OF COURSE!

If I may be so bold to point out that ... the debate in question was not about Muslim on Muslim Violence. Like yourself pointed out ... that is why its useless to mention WW1 & WW2 in that context.

And anyway - I come from a Indian background myself - and I had members of family at the both side of the debate regarding the Bengladeshi Freedom. This personally is close issure for me. And the Pakistani violence in Bengladesh was mindless and horriffic. But this was not the "case" in point.

I didn't mention anything about Musims and "Civilsied". I was attacking the high horse you were setting thiws so-called Western Liberalism. This is an umbrella term - commonly used against Muslims. But People like Daniel Pipes or Robert Spence are hardly "Liberal". Actively Christians, Conservatives and Anti-Islam.

Now using Daniel Pipes as a source is interesting - and counting people allegedly killed by Muslims. I didnt ask about that. You were already talking about Muslim Violence. I asked about West's violence against Muslims. And there is a hell of lot of it. How do you justify killings in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Libya, Iraq, Iran, Russia, Indian Kashmir, Palestine ....

You didn't answer - but gave the old drivel Again. Hey, I know all about Muslim violence. But considering we Muslims are not in number to match technologivally advanced Westeners - how you can you begin take this moral high ground beggars belief.

I have not come across a Hindu who has read a bit - who does not likes to quote Will Durrant or Koenraad Elst. Elst, was a convert to Hinduism. A contreversial figure. He was massively biased pro-Hindu. May I suggest you read crtiscism of his work as well (might just be an eye opener). His work falss along the same lines as Yvonne Riddley - a convert to Islam "female!" by the way. You know there is an obvious bias.

Will durant - was an interesting one - you call him a brilliant scholar but I dont. He carries on in that work to mention that first Muslim raid on I ndia was Multan 664 - but it was earlier than that and on Sindh - on the coast line. How it was Multan - I dont know? But that too is a long and seprate debate. Amond the which lines I have years studying about.

You didnt bother to respond properly to what I wrote. ...
