in response to reader comment: Ethnic cleansing is part of Islam

Ethnic cleansing is a ritual practised by fanatics of all faiths irrespective of what religion they follow. Uprooting the evil to let goodness prevail is the teaching of all religions. Biblical stories are very much the same as stories in the Quran, Hindu mythology is full of battles to root out evil. The question remains what is symbolised as evil and by who. It is the individual's thinking.

According to vast majority of people now Muslims are evil, according to muslim fanatics all those against Islam are evil and those muslims living in the west are evil, according to Hindus All non Hindus especially muslims are evil because they preach religion of one God, for Iraqis and vast majority of mid eastern peoples, Americans have become evil.

To illustrate this our recent visit to Umrah showed how unpopular we have become in comparison to the Hajj visit 7 years ago. How can one judge another when you yourself are not perfect because you are trying to malign the word of God for you own ends, how tolerant are you when you accuse others and judge them. Being brought up in India I was forced to study Hindu mythology, stories from the Christian Bible and everything they wanted to teach me. The story is always glorifying the Hero who overcomes and defeats evil. In those regions these so called muslim terrorists come from are nothing but glorified Heroes. Bhagat Singh was labeled a terrorist by the British and he's labeled a Hero now. Time, Place, situation, story defines the individual and his actions. The victims of violence are ALWAYS THE INNOCENTS IN MAJORITY OF THE CASES, WAR OR THE PRACTICE OF SATI.
