Reader comment on item: [The Issue of Compulsion in Religion:] Islam is What Its Followers Make of It
in response to reader comment: Real Educated (not brainwashed) Muslims can save the world

Hi there XYZ,

I think you piece is absolutely beautiful and i could not agree more. I for one am a lover of all religions, i do not in anyway care who is a Hindu, Muslim, Christian, Sikh or anything else. The fact that they are human and mean well is enough for me.

But as you pointed out every religion or superpower that has ever been has had its 5 minutes fame and then died out. Whats funny is that to date every superpower has been destroyed from inside, If Islam was to become a superpower. They will simply get destroyed from inside. It is a simple fact of life, no one likes to be any lesser than anyone else. Even if the whole world became Islamic, someone will make a stand and the chain of destruction will begin.

The common proof is anything that had a beginning has an end. Where as XYZ pointed out, that if the fundimentalist aspect of Islam was stamped out, and the processes of forced conversation and killings was stopped. Mankind may well have the opportunity to live life in peace.

One thing that no one on this forum has yet mentioned is the end of life. If Islam wishes to take over the world, then they will only eventually get wiped out, whether it is by another part of mankind or god.

The basis of this claim comes from something very simple. Something every religion has (D Day/armageddon).

In every script (inrespective of religion), god will come and destroy all those on earth at the point that the world has become so curropt and evil that it is beyond redemption (as a practicing Sanatana Dhrama disciple i refer to this as the end of the Kaliyug). This quite easy means that if Islam continues to grow at its current rate, if it overtakes the world. It will only be wiped out. Needless to say god will only wipe out that which he sees is evil.

Please Note: I am not implying that Islam is evil, i am actually implying that the current trend within parts of Islam regarding force conversation and persecution is evil and ultimately unless the good of the world (especially Islam) stand up against this tyrany, the evil aspect will overthrow the good.

Submitting....
