in response to reader comment: Why is Islam a religion of Peace?

You Muslims quote Quran and confirm that Quran is the words of Allah and there will be heaven for all muslims or others if they do good in this life. To achieve a reward of after life you have to believe in Islam. It is like telling the child that you study now I will give a chocolate later.

Of course this will have an effect on illiterate poor people in freightening them to do certain things in the propagandists' way.

But neutral educated souls will ask these questions. You are telling about heaven where is it? Is it up or down under the earth. If it is populated by all dead souls how much big has it to be? If judgement comes on a judgement day who will remember all the dead or living souls by names and their activities? Is it possible to store trillions of records in Allah's Computers. I think then Allah has to outsource the designs to Christian Americans and Hindu Indians and Buddhist Chinese who will manipulate the data so that finally Allah will curse all Muslims and Hell will be for them.

What I want to suggest is that the religion, Your beliefs, Your faith has to be with you only and you should not try to propagate it like Muslims. In Hindu thought there are sayings that you do your dharma without wishing for the fruits. Fruits if it is there will come to you anyway. So you should not do your actions thinking that you will get heaven in after life. You do your Dharma now here.

Hinduism does not propagate. There are no compulsions in religion. You may go to temple or you can altogether reject. You may worship any god according to your nature.There are Thousands of Gods to select from. You find out one for you and one method of devotion. There are different methods. It is an ocean. You can experience the peace mentally if you enter the greatest religion in the world.

thank you,
