"How in the world are you going to Ban Islam, throw out Muslims or forcibly convert them,or evn try to censor the Quran-e Karim?"

It's the first option, Fazal, but not the second or third options. The West, on the whole, no longer believes in converting people or censoring religion. These last 2 approaches is performed nowadays primarily by Muslims who still think in these medieval terms.
"The Hindus ...blame the Muslims for anything and everything that goes wrong in India."

An exaggeration, Fazal. However, remember, over the last 600 years Muslims murdered more Hindus that all other colonial powers combined. So your blessed heart should try to be a little more understanding,
"they went to the extent of claiming that Pakistan had come up with a machine that diverted cyclones to India and letting Plague infested rats into India."

Conspiracy theories nowadays are mainly concocted by Muslim minds.
Remember the muslim ones about the 9/11 being carried out by US and Jews.

I don't think Pakistan has the technology yet to affect the weather
over India, but the second tactic (a form of poor man's biological warfare) has been used by people since the middle ages and we do know that Pakistan hates India and wants to convert the Hindus.
"India claims to be the world's largest democracy when they can't think straight."

Please point out a Muslim democracy that practices minority rights, women's rights and religious freedom (besides Turkey).
"If there has not been an assimilation into the national fabric, then the country facing the problem needs to take a very close look at the causes and create circumstances to over come these barriers. But the stand that is taken is "This is our country and our right. ". What happens to the citizens of the country who don't follow the path you choose broadcast or follow? Think about it because that is where the problem lies. No one has stopped you from doing what you choose why are you inflicting us with your ways then?"

These are good thoughts, Fazal, but why don't you direct them to the Saudis, the Iranians, the Pakistanis etc. You're being a little hypocritical here. Or maybe you're not thinking straight.
"You people think like this and at times i feel the world is really unsafe for the minority non western countries."

Yes, it IS unsafe for minorities that are intolerant of other religions and that resort to violence. Therefore, currently it is unsafe for Muslims. But Muslims can change this situation. How? They can change themselves by becoming nonviolent and truly tolerant.

"I want to know if Saddam Hussein ever attacked any country in the West? "

Yes, Israel. In 1991. But maybe you don't consider Jewish Israel a country.
He also attacked Kuwait and Iran and of course his own people. Maybe that doesn't bother you.
