My dear Syed, You might not be like that, but many are.

My Dear, I fully understand you and what misunderstanding is there. And I am not here to defend Islamic, Christian, Jewish or Hindu history. All are filled with blood and war. And All Mighty will decide who was most God fearing and just in those events.

But my dear, if you look best books on history, they are all about blood and war. Not all of wars are because of Muslims. A more just statement would be "Wars and Battles are the part of Human history and not alone the Muslim history". A thoughtful heart is required to understand this though.

My Dear, if you take Sikkh history, there are Anglo-Sikh Wars that took place in 18th century, between parts of Punjab and the British East India Company.

I always say "Contract is always better than War. But sometimes war is inevitable when not enough effort is given to calm down reactive souls in pre-war period".

My dear, you and me are living in pre-war period. And I am putting best of my efforts to calm down souls by helping them to surrender One True God. Allah.

Unfortunately you are misinformed. It astounds me how little of your own history you know.

I am not misinformed.

I know about my history and wars that took place. May it be battle of Badar, Saffain and Jamal, Tabuk or Wars with Tatri, Crusades, 1857 war with English man or more recently Arab Israel wars of 1948, 1967, World War 1, 2 or US led Iraq and Afghanistan wars.

All I wanted to say, be just and remain calm about history because I am not a big fan of idea that human history should decide human future.

Your brothers murdered over 80 million Hindus building towers with the skulls of the dead. Add that to the slaughter buddists, christians and jews and the death toll far exceeds both world wars.

We have to separate history from our present and future to make sure justice prevail and less and less souls become reactive. This will help us in not having a war. I can not guarantee but our children could have better more just behavior in that way.

I'm not trying to start an argument with you.

I appreciate that but you and I could submit to One True All Mighty to calm down reactive souls around the world; may they be of Muslims, Buddists, Christians or Jews.

My love to you.
