in response to reader comment: Jizya was not innocent harmless protection money

If some one says that Lord Krishna killed even the most mercifull man Karna _ It is either ignorance or disease in their heart..
If some says that Jesus didn't marry because he was afraid of marriage _ It is either ignorance or disease in their heart
If some says that Lord Rama killed a warrior hiding behind a bush _ It is either ignorance or disease in the heart.

There is no problem in their acts, to understand that, one has to read the whole story with a open mind. Similarly there is no problem with the teachings of prophet Muhammed. In fact his teachings and the Quran increased the humanity and human values. To understand that one has to read his full teachings and history with open mind. One cannot Judge all the christians based on the act of Crusaders who killed lot of muslim men, women and children. One cannot judge the Hindus or the Hinduisim based on the barbaric act of some of the Hindus in Gujarats..

Simlarly one cannot judge Islam, Quran and the rest of the muslim worls based on some fools who are blowing themselves and killing the innocents. It is the right and pure heart which can judge every one. So let us refrain from judging others and the other religion. Let us strive to increase our human values by compassion and mercy and moral characters rather than pointing fingures on each other and their religions. May the Almighty increase our human values and moral charcaters and decrease our diseases in our hearts and make us healthy and tolerant in our hearts so that we can appreciate each other culture and leave in peace and harmony.

Between Jizya was introduce to non-muslims but not to muslims because all the muslims have to pay 2.5% poor tax (or Zakat) to the Islamic government at that time. But the non-muslims were not giving any money to the government people which became a jizya-tax at that point of time. The rightly guided caliphas of prophet Muhammed did that in a very right and fair way but some muslim rulers in India and some other country have misused it.
