Yasin Aziz, you write,

>>... You wrote "Islam is a missionizing religion" which is totally wrong I don't know from where you got this "Missionizing" idea about Islam.<<

LOL. You seem to be saying the prophet was not on a mission to spread Islam. What Islam does best is sermonize to all who care to listen, and even to who couldn't care less, what a great religion is Islam. What is dawa? What are the Tableegis up to? You either do not know anything about your religion or you are on the usual taqia trip trying to deceive unwary readers on this blog.

>>The incidents which you mentioned are totally "Personal Choice" Mr. Khan who arrange the Halal meat did by only his personal wish,….<<

You have a curious concept of personal choice. If Mr. Khan did not want to eat pork that is his personal choice. But insisting the inmates of his "home" also give up that pleasure is not his choice to make. This is what Danielpipes wrote:

"His stealthy decision meant pensioners at QCC could no longer eat their bacon and eggs, bangers and mash, ham sandwiches, bacon sandwiches, pork pies, bacon butties, or sausage rolls". This Muslim instead of giving the inmates a choice imposed his dietary taboos on them.

>>….according to Shariah every religion holder has the right to practice it, living examples are he Holy Sites & Places still exist in Muslim countries and the follower of those religions under Muslim Laws are practicing it in peace, even having wine which is banned in most of the Muslim countries.<<

What are you trying to say? You say non-Muslims are free to have wine in Muslim countries which is banned in most of them. Something is seriously wrong with this claim of yours.

You further claim that Sharia give the right to non-Muslims to practice their religion. You are from Pakistan. Ask an Ahmadia in your country what kind of freedom he has. Ask Christians and Hindus what freedoms they have. The practice of Muhammad gives the lie to your claim that "every religion holder has the right to practice" it. The moment the Prophet conquered Mecca he destroyed the holy idols of the Meccans. He destroyed the temples of Uzza and Lat. The Muslims who came to India followed suit and destroyed Hindu temples in the thousands. In recent times Muslims destroyed the Bamiyan statues of the Buddhists. Bahais are persecuted in Iran.

>>Same om Hijab for Muslim ladies it is a must and for non-Muslims it's their choice.<<

Why does Islam impose a dress code on Muslim women. Do they not have a choice in how they dress? The Saudis impose the abaya on non-Muslims. There is no choice.

>>If some one is imposing some thing which is related to Shariah it doesn't mean that Shariah has ordered like this.<<

Allah orders that Islam should be imposed on everyone, even if they detest it:

009.033 YUSUFALI: It is He Who hath sent His Messenger with guidance and the Religion of Truth, to proclaim it over all religion, even though the Pagans may detest (it).

003.085 YUSUFALI: If anyone desires a religion other than Islam (submission to Allah), never will it be accepted of him; and in the Hereafter He will be in the ranks of those who have lost (All spiritual good).

These two verses, as they are from the Koran also constitute the Sharia. You have no clue to what Islam is, Mr. Yasin Aziz. Who taught you Islam??

>>Plz at your earliest read the Shariah and if you find some thing which doesn't fit in your surrounding or society then start some discussion on that.<<

I suggest to you also to please read the Koran first to understand Sharia to see whether it "fits your surroundings or society". We could have a fruitful discussion after that.

Regards

Plato
