'SHARIA' OF ALL RELIGIONS IS WELCOME, BUT WITH PEACE AND JUSTICE

Reader comment on item: Why Shariah Must Be Opposed
in response to reader comment: OK, If Not Sharia - Then What?

Dear Mr. M. Tovey: Thank you for your comments.

Generally all religious clerics are less educated. So rarely they do research and studies. Islamic Sharia laws as well as all religions do not have any codified laws. They are preferred by the clerics and other such peoples in accordance with their benefits. Let us not argue on those points.

The reality is as you suggestively said:

One: Love [the LORD thy] God with all thy heart, all thy soul, and all thy mind.

Two: Love thy neighbor as thyself.

Perhaps we the makind has wasted much of our time. Let us do the right things in the right ways. Let us end our differences through understanding and not through arguments and counter arguments.

Yes, such was the 'cry' of the fanatic Christians in Middle Ages in Europe. No other religion took the position of Christianity and Islam. So there is no similar claim. Even then you find some such demands in India from amongst the fanatic Hindus.

I am a Muslim and I am speaking with all honesty and sincereity. Let us speak the truth and avoid self-deception. Otherwise, the mankind will suffer with many more difficulties.
