Our dear Pranab and the word كافر

Reader comment on item: [The Issue of Compulsion in Religion:] Islam is What Its Followers Make of It
in response to reader comment: Kafir means non-believer not Non Muslim

It is funny when non Arabic speakers from India pontificate about words in a language that they cannot speak read or write. The etymology of the Arabic word كافر or Kafir is from the Syriac word ܟܦܘܪܐ or Kapura (Hebrew Koper) and it means: "pagan, heathen, unbeliever, infidel" and the "unbelievers" here are the non Jews and non Christians and Muhammad plagiarized the word without knowing the real meaning of the word.
