hi all,
I really like jamal's comment on Islam.

Thinking he can understand, I'm putting some questions here.
Its in no way to harm any beliefs.

1. If Koran is written by Muhammed(pbuh) who is a human being too. How sure is it that it is not manipulated.
2. Or can a powerful king manipulate it.
3. the saying "La Ilaha illallah, Muhammadur Rasool Allah" in a way firmly puts Muhammad(pbuh) as the mouth of god. How sure can one person be that this was a manipulation by Muhammed(pbuh) or his students.

These questions are in no way to hurt anyone. But question I think a follower should ask but has never been seen asking.

I can be called a hindu by birth. But in reality there's no religion created as hindu. it was what persians and many others called people who lived on the shores of river Indus or the people of Indus Valley Civilization. The division was created by foreign powers. And many may believe hinduism (using in current context) is polytheistic. but it actually is monotheism. Like Islam consider Muhammed(pbuh) in high regard almost like god. So is Chirstianity and its saints

My belief is that there is no single monotheist religion in world and it can never be. Why? because to spread religion (a concept or collection of ideas on worship) it needs early adopters but in time they will surely be considered as powerful as god and people even will not dire to question them or their sayings.

Religions are only to create divisions in people. the more "..isms" we have the more divided we are. The real problem in world is not people following this or that religion. its greed, selfishness. Unless that is changed no religion can change the world.

If you look back in history you can find all religions are manipulated by those in power, to a lesser extent hinduism because it was non-existent. the reason why Mughals can't convert India to Islam (though they tried to with some rulers destroying temples n workship places) but that changed as India come under western rule. and later when politicians took over, whether its Babri-Masjid in India or events in gujarat. this state of all religions around the world all are in hands of bad people or mad people.

can we change it - dont think so, coz mad people have mad followers and your life is in threat
