I laughed at how your attempt at sarcasm backfired.
then you top it off with
True muslims are always law abiding citizens
Sadly what you say is far from the truth, in most Western countries Muslims are over represented in the criminal populations. In France 63% of the prison population are muslim, in Australia, 12% of the prison population is Muslim yet Muslims make up only 2.4% of the population.
When you look at corruption levels of Muslim countries compared to western countries, again Muslims show that they tend to dishonesty.
I do not believe that Islam is the sole cause of the dishonestty of Muslims compared to non Muslims, however when you consider the founder of Islam robbed caravans, raped women and children and said it is ok to lie to non Muslims, Mohammed cannot escape blame to at least contributing to the high levels of dishonestly and crime committed by Muslims no matter where they live.
The examples provided in this article is symptomatic of great lack of morals practiced by Muslims when benchmarked against the standards of modern western values.
Sadly Prashant, you are yet another example of muslims in denial, all too familiar to Westerners in this forum.
