Truth Hurts -- unfortunately no Soul Searching among Muslims

in response to reader comment: The truth hurts

Muhammed (and his followers of Islam) did convert by the sword. And that is a fact of history, which muslims like to deny. Just ask the Hindus, who were forced to convert over 1000 years of Islamic rule. Awful lot of Hindus, to avoid conversion, chose death (ie. mass suicides). How many Hindu temples were destroyed and the most important Hindu temples were converted to mosques? Muslims would rather not like to talk about.That is the legacy of Islam, which Islam wants to forget and hence deny, lest its own people question the very basis of Islam (and hence lead to demise of Islam).

Truth hurts, and it is meant to hurt. But it also leads to soul searching. But that is asking for too much from Muslims.

Islam, a Religion of Peace!. Well, then why are they rioting over a lecture at a university; most of the rioters could not even read or write?. Obviously, the reality is otherwise.
