I am a Hindu living in Mumbai, The only thing i would like to ask Mr.Syed Rafey Husain is that why do Muslims want to kill anyone who insults their religion or prophet? Why do they give such extreme reactions?

I have seen only muslims doing it.The whole world has seen their sordid reactions in the Danish Cartoon Controversy. Don't u think that there is something wrong with your religion Mr.Husain? I agree that when someone insults the prophet whether He is Mohammad,Jesus or anyone else,the people belonging to respective religions will feel hurt.But there are other civilized ways to protest. Why do you people want to kill the person?

As a hindu i will feel agrieved if you insult my gods but at no point of time I will want you to be killed for this act. Every human being has a right to have his opinion and if you are hurt by anybody's opinion you can very well stop listening to him or log a protest in court or police station non-violently.
