Pope Speaks On Islamic Jehad

Reader comment on item: Pope Benedict Criticizes Islam [in Regensburg]

Submitted by Gope Lalwani (United States), Sep 19, 2006 at 14:55

Although Pope is not known to comment on other faiths, but he could not resist the temptation of expressing that violence and Islam has been found to be going together. His views are expected to raise an intense debate.

Pope Benedict XVI weighed the delicate issue of rapport between Islam and the West. He said that violence, embodied in the Muslim idea of jihad, or holy war, is contrary to reason and God's plan. Even if human race agrees that western devils and USA are enemies of Islam.

But why Muslims attack in India, a docile community with no imperialist aspirations and home to the second largest population of Muslims.?

Can Muslims explain this? Why the Islamic invaders super imposed their mosques on temples while Britishers and other rulers like Portuguese never did it? Why Muslim youth ask other religion's partner to convert to Islam for marriage and not vice versa? Why is it that a Muslim flares up on reference to Koran or any other dictates of mullahs by any non Muslims?

Why Muslims cant bear criticism like others do? Why is it that the unrest is always linked to Muslims in the world? Can Muslims deny that in Koran, sunna and Sharia or whatever by correct name these are called ,there is clear mention for treating women as filth and treating non Islam world as non believers and deserve to be eliminated? It is exclusive and sick mind's attitude. The fact is that most of Muslims who are illiterate are brainwashed by mullahs and fanatics in Islamic community to wage war in name of Jihad which itself is foolish and uncivilised word.

...It is time Muslims reform their medieval and obsolete thinking, intolerance to criticism to their holy books and practises,and self praise of Islam and degrading other religions. Muslims are restless lot with self assumed chastity and purity and frog eyed vision about their religion. They must update and open up themselves and learn to respect all humanity and remain in their limits. No race on earth can be assumed to be infinitely tolerant to their violent and vociferous means and noise and should not therefore be taken for granted. It is historical fact that Muslims have never lived in peace in their history since inception. It is time Muslims start behaving and mind their own religion and business.
