Dear Singha,

Thank you for your response.

Let me affirm that I am talking to my best with justice in my words and intention. I am trying to understand you at my best, so you need not to worry that I will try to take you wrong.

Correct me, if I am wrong that, your argument is this "Science (i.e. reason/mind") should drive daily human lives as whole while Islam, Christianism, Judaism (i.e. divinity/heart) should be second priority".

If that's the argument, then reason will follow divinity and Heart will follow head.

My dear Singha, it is always that Heart rules, and Head follows. And Head advices while Heart takes you there and far beyond. And reverse is not possible.

Dear Singha, Heart is courage, head uses it. And Head only likes while Heart loves! Don't you wanna love.

Dear Singha, Islam (not the Kings and princes in various Arab states) does mean JUSTICE for women and non Muslims and it will not result in TYRANNY to large sections of humanity. How could it be? When for me (as a Muslim) it is prescribed in Quran to lower my gaze when woman crosses me. I respect woman because I will be asked on the day of Judgement about my wives.

Muslims (i.e. Surrendered Souls To All Mighty, not the ones who haven't surrendered yet) love Mohummad (May peace and blessing on him) and Holy Quran. And they don't want freedom to freely criticize "anything unjust" with fervor and without wear.

I know Taslima Nasreen, Amina Wadud and WAFA SULTAN. Let's try calm these souls, they are women. Let you and me calm them down with our love.

I have a message for Islamist/Arab rulers, they being my brothers in Islam, that they hold hands of women like Taslima Nasreen, Amina Wadud and WAFA SULTAN and help them in getting Justice they are looking for. I wanted to say in clear words to Islamist/Arab rulers that they leave earthly life and fear the day when they will be asked of their doing. If they don't do Justice, where else Taslima Nasreen, Amina Wadud and WAFA SULTAN could go? They have to think.

In Karachi, Pakistan, I have full access to all websites.
