Dear Nuray: Thanks for your understanding and kind response. I am sory if my response and honest truth hurt your sensibilities. Yes I am from that part of Asia.

I may have mentioned earlier that I am a closet apostate. In my country, if I expressed my views about Mohammed publicly, I will be killed by religious fanatics long before I am presecuted under blasphemy laws.

I have learned that my own family was forcibly converted many few generations back from hinduism. In my country many hindu girls are kidnapped and forcibly converted routinely.Their hindu parents are devasted. Often christian churches are attacked and christians killed. Shias and Ahmadis are killed while praying in their mosques.In my country the islamic fanaticism is increasing day by day.We are going back daily towards 7th century islam.. I

see more and more beards, more hajis, more burkas, more jihadi camps, more sharia, more namazis, more mosques, mor madrassas teaching only quran and hadiths, more tablighi Jamat hordes knocking on your doors asking men to go on missions. They openly recruit brainwashed youth for jihadi camps and train them .Saudis are pouring money to spread wahabi fanaticism here. A girl without hijab/burqa irrespective of how pious she may be, is looked down and taunted. Men with beards are respected irrespective of how bad they may be . Situation is terrible in villages for poor muslim girls. They are often raped by landlords and when pregnant they are accused of adultery and are put in prisons. The rapists never get prosecuted because sharia requires four male witnesses.

For muslims living in a free kafir country under free kafir laws , practising islam of one's choice is a luxury. Here you dont have a choice. You follow islam of your local mullahs and imams . They want you to follow quran and hadiths strictly to their interpretations only. Many women under pressure are wearing burqas even though they hate it . many men are wearing beards to look pious in the community.
