in response to reader comment: Response...ISLAM'S 'RELIGION' STATUS

You write "This is surprising to see that non muslims are well aware of Islamic laws and Sharia...but the only problem is that they have their minds fixed on single concept that Islam is something unacceptable. ".

You are correct; we are well aware of Islamic laws and Sharia; and they are not acceptable in the west. Simply because Sharia exists in Saudi Arabia does not mean we want it here; we don't want to be another Saudi Arabia or Iran or Afghanistan or Egypt or Pakistan or even Malyasia.

You write "West must change this attitude to avoid further disturbance in the world. West should also avoid clashes with muslims around the world..which is doing nothing but churning out more terrorists..".

What disturbances in the world? All those disturbances are in the muslim world and they are killing each other. Do you think Americans are overly concerned that Iraqis are killing each other or Pakistanis are killing each other or Afghanis are killing each other? Sorry, as long as, those disturbances limited to the muslim world, US (and the West) will not be concerned; rather we will be very happy to sell arms so that they kill each each more and more.

By the way, this forum is not for teaching/learning about Islam; we already know enough about it. So, stop wasting time about what koran says or does not say. This is essentially a political forum; so stick to the politics. Nobody wants to read long and boring explanations of Islam and Koran.
