Verbal Abuse and Peaceful Islam

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

Submitted by Ali (United Kingdom), Sep 21, 2006 at 18:11

When you go to universities, bus stands, train stations, airports, banks and so on...means anywhere.. you can see a big warning board hanging outside or inside a critical area for a common members of public, "WARNING: ANY KIND OF VERBAL ABUSE AGAINST OUR MEMBER OF STAFF WILL BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY AND 'WILL BE' PROSECUTED, MAXIMUM FINE £1000...."

This is just about inside that particular area of that particular organization where a public member can not abuse anyone.

Imagine the same criteria, this is the world (a particular area), there is world's biggest religion "Islam" (the organization), there is the Pope (member of public) who abuse Islam.

So how come he would have left with no serious reaction by Muslims?, see the difference Islam is still peaceful as compare to any other law, as yet Pope was not prosecuted!!!
