in response to reader comment: Farah is wrong on three counts

Submitted by Farah (United Kingdom), Jul 28, 2013 at 23:31

Well, Prashant, didnt take you long to comment.

Firstly there is a fine line between voicing your opinion and offending others, which has been clearly demonstrated by your lovely pal dhimminomore, As he/she cannot seem to have a clean and rationale debate, without the sarcasm then no it would not be a good thing for her to voice her views Also the views on your part are not respective - far from the word..

Secondly, you said regarding the comment I made to DNM, about supposedly wishing her bad on her death. This comment was not made randomly out of the blue, and was made because of the comments made earlier by DNM in regards to her sarcasm about Islam, the rude and abnoxious comments which she FIRST made, as a response to my comment on ifrahim's written piece.

Also the comment, if you could understand a basic sentence, was not meant to wish her bad, it was a mere statement to express her ignorance towards Islam, as she has so often slated Islam at any opportunity she can find, so the comment should almost certainly of had no effect on her.

Thirdly, you commented on what I said regarding Hinduism. Now, you see this makes you look like the fool, as you are too focused on bashing Islam and noticing the flaws in the way in which people who claim to be Muslim follow Islam, yet completely ignore the many flaws of other religions, particularly Hinduism. And yes dear Prashant the religion of Hinduism also has many flaws, but flaws which come from its people rather than the actual religion itself, just like Islam.

Idol worship, which is very common amongst the Hindus, is prohibited in Hinduism. It is mentioned in Bhagavad Gita Chapter 7 verse 20:

"Those whose intelligence has been stolen by material desires they worship demigods i.e. idols.(Bhagavad Gita 7:20)

It is mentioned in Svetashvatara Upanishad chapter 4 verse 19 As well as in:

"There is no image of Him"
(Svetashvatara Upanishad 4:19)

It is mentioned in Yajurved Chapter 32 Verse 3

"There is no image of Him"

(Yajurved 32:3)

It is also mentioned in

Yajurveda Chapter 40 verse 9

"They enter darkness those who worship natural things (for e.g. air, water, fire, etc.). They sink deeper in darkness those who worship sambhuti i.e. created things (for e.g. table, chair, car, idol etc.)
(Yajurved 40:9)

So, as you can see from above, Hinduism strictly forbids idol worship and depiciting images of God. However, there are people in Hinduism (majority) who do not adhere to these rules and take for worship idols, yet they have contradicted their own beliefs in their religion, and so canot really claim to follow Hinduism. Similarly, Islam does not teach people to blow up buildings and murder innocent people. However, there are people who claim to be Muslim who do such things which contradict Islam.

Finally, Prashant Ji (allow me to use an Indian word on endearment) there are actually many flaws within the UK which you fail to point out also. Regarding how they allow racist groups to rip the headscarves of Muslim women off in the streets and beat up Muslim men for having a beard. Yes, but it is all absolutuely fine with people like you Prashant, when young children and women are killed in Palestine and Afghanistan for no reason, due to the likes of the UK. It's also perfectly normal for the Oslo Bomber to kill so many children and want to wipe out the Islamic race, but yet he was not labelled a terrorist and people were so quick to claim that he must have been mental, as if to say 'oh, a white man can never succumb to such low actions, or a white man cannot be a terrorist'.

So, Prashant Janu, I hope this was a well informed and educative response for you. But, as always I know your itching to respond with your arrogant, hypocritcal and fallacious arguments. Can't wait to hear your response.

Alavidha phir milenge - allow me to say goodbye with your Indian terms. Just to ensure you understand that I have taken time out to show I want to learn about you. LOL - NOT. You brought the sarcasm first before you reply and say 'well Farah jaan, (allow me to use your afghan words of endearment) you were sarcastic first. Oh and by the way just to let you know im not an afghan or even an asian for that matter, so get your facts right Prashant Ji.

Submitting....
