As for your quotation that 'India did not let in the muslims' and 'Islam invaded India; they were not invited.' AND ' We don't know how Islam spread to Indonesia: just over 500 years ago all of indonesia was Hindu. My guess is it was not gentle persuasion but more coersion of the weak and by bribery of the criminal elements as is the case nowdays.'

I have to say that you are sadly mistaken. You either do not like Muslims very much or have a very narrow way of thinking. India was a land where indians and muslims lived together in harmony until some problems arised, this is where Pakistan was made. To ensure that innocent muslims could have a land that they could call their own. Its not a matter of whether India let in muslims or not, they were there to begin with.

As for your 2nd comment, Islam did not invade India - its like saying that one indian person living in the UK bringing a nation of indians with him has invaded Britain. What a load of nonsense. If it wasnt for the cooperation of diverse nationalities, some countries would not be able to stand up right! Im sure you are a mature individual and remarks/opinions like this only destroys the reputation of the most growing and purist religion there is, amongst many others.
People seek refuge in Islam because its logical teaching and simplicity. Its individuals like yourself that have made Islam to be complicated and a 'pro-terrorist' religion.

People need to learn more about Islam and find out what its teachings are instead of being narrow-minded like past generations and looking to the media for support - you never know, it is the media that could be paying sum1 to kill your most closest loved one.
Thank you.
