Reader comment on item: What is Jihad?
in response to reader comment: Are Muslims becoming party-poopers?

Dear Dr Pipes,

Prashant has just written a very insightful post. I couldn't have written it in a better and more beautiful way. It's Muslims' mentality against non-Muslims. There's nothing that may put us on an equal level just as simple human beings. No equity either. Yes, we fall in love with another human being, but they fall in love with a "new-ourself", a "reverted" to their religion. The religion that they truly believe to be perfect and the very best. The Only One. They fall in love with an idea. That's how all the problem starts. They're in love with the idea of converting all of us. And if they try, and they fail, they believe that "Shaitan" is whispering in our left ear to control our every moves. Of course, something must be wrong with you. Or so do they say. Your value rises from the very moment you "revert". They can't look at us like we look at them. Or in the way that we used to look at them. There was a different time, when we didn't know. Then, we learnt the hard way.

While this thinking of supremacy and self-righteousness continues to be spread through Muslim generations across the globe, there will be nothing that we can do.

Thank you Prashant for your very accurate reflection. It really touched my heart.
