Mr Sultan: Under sharia law , a rape cannot be proved without four muslim male witnessess who saw actual penetration. In Pakistan many landowners rape poor farmers daughters and make them pregnent . She is the one punished for fornication because she cannot produce four male winesses. In Nigeria Amina Lawal was raped but was herself sentenced to death by stoning for adultery since she could not bring four male witnesses. Only under tremendous pressures from worldwide non muslims, her punishment was dropped.

You wrote that quran does not call for killing any one. Mr Sultan you must be joking.The aya of sword quoted by all jihadis say "slay the infidels wherever you find them unless they convert to islam".

009.005
Slay the infidels wherever ye find them, an seize them, beleaguer them, and lie in wait for them in every stratagem ; but if they repent, and establish regular prayers and practise regular charity, then open the way for them:

Mohammed who according to Allah was living "quran" who lived to show humanity how to live and is the best example of conduct for all humans, was the one of the most violent men who ever lived.

033.021
YUSUFALI: Ye have indeed in the Messenger of Allah a beautiful pattern (of conduct)

Sultan, apparently you did not read the response given to you by Nazia Khan (August 24).
If majority of muslims are non violent, that is inspite of islam. However by accepting a violent man as their prophet and violent book as their book of Guidance they give moral support to the violent extremists and terrorists.
