"As a hindu i will feel aggrieved if you insult my gods but at no point of time I will want you to be killed for this act".

I understand your point and I will try to address .

Dear Ashish, my Prophet (May peace and blessings on him) teaches me everything like a loving caring father. However most Muslim and non-Muslims souls are so eager to acquire worldly pleasures as soon as possible and becomes reactive.

However, now it is my responsibility that I act in a way that no one blames for my acts to my Prophet (May peace and blessings on him).

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.

Dear Ashish, you are right and I agree. This is the way Islam also teaches but for such Muslims who do not follow this way I have a message that "Follow simple teachings of Islam first before showing ANY reaction". You say the same thing if you face it.

My love to you.

Syed Rafey Husain.

Karachi, Pakistan.
