It seems that you are trapped in the water current and dont know how to swim...

The above sentence of yours is subjective and does not incite any comments...

Attacking my religion with ideas like yours simply make me laugh....I personally feel that one worshiping stone is the most unfortunate...

You laugh or cry depends upon your conditioning because the emotions come because of your conditioning of the mind....

We do not attack other religions because we have taught to assimilate good teachings in all other faiths..... You remove the Kaaaba Stone first around which all Muslims have to encircle if his finances allow him... Arabic is the language which is divine as per Quran ( which itself is idol worship ( You are worshipping the language)... and Meccah is the direction where you pray 5 times a day... ( This is also idol worship since it is meaningless if you worship an Omnipresent Allah who will be in all directions...)

You find divinity in Moon which I need not explain to you which is only a satellite of earth... Is it not idol worship...

There is no personal feeling to come when you discuss a deep topic like established religion.

You will find in the books of Jews, Muslim and Christian that Abraham (A.S) was the one who took this bull by horn and smashed like anything..

Bull is only an innocent animal and here also you instal the idol properties..... Books of Jews,Muslim,Christaianity you make divine by the sort of idol worship.... These books are revered by you and you see somebody desecating the Quran you become violent... Why? Because you instal the same caharacteristics of idol worship in them..... Smashing Attacking Laughing these all wordings in your reply points to the attacking and arrogant nature of the conditioning made to you by your favourite religion...

The idol worship is the most weakest type of religion because they fail to understand the basic concept that a man made idol cannot be thier creator..Allah in Quran dealt with such kind of beleivers with strong and valid points...

Kaaba stone is an Idol, Moon is an idol, Jinns, Angels ,Hell, Heaven, Quran, Arabiic Language ,Meccah's directions, Crying loud to Allah form Mosques ( Can't your Allah see and hear your prayer ) all are idol worships in one way... Pigs are anti Allah, Halal food, Dogs are anti allah Jews are like pigs monkeys donkeys these are all anti idol phrases coined by most of your followers. You explain these are not idol worships? When you blame others intospect yourself. Whu you should bow down touching your forehead on the ground? There are numerous examples which will point that you are also worshipping idols.

If they suggest that their big idols created this beautiful universe then why they themselves are so ugly...??? If they are really Gods then everyone on earth should be joyfull that they found their creator..(naozobillah)..They even fail to impress their followers...how can they impress others...

Ugliness,Big ,Beautiful are relative terms which can be alternated according to the viewers perception.... So no comments on this... Nobody in Hinduism have ever declared that these idols created the universe... God is omnipresent...infinite and do not have shapes colors or sizes. He can be very small even smaller than neurons or even bigger than than the entire universe... In order to pray to him we dedicate temples, idols (Murthis) to visualise the infinite into finite... Since human mind develops from the immediate to the infinity gradually..... If we go deeply the subject is never ending and you open some Hinduism books of some Swamijis to contemplate what is happening when we pray and the methods of praying, meditation, Yoga etc., etc.,

Banning or Attacking Islam seems easy but defending your religion is very difficult....I respect your religion but cannot accept it as a true one...

Nobody in the world want to attack your beautiful religion if it restricts itself in the sphere of selves of individuals... When a religion starts laughing at others and in the process terminating others the whole world will concentrate on correcting, reforming or some may try to ban that Religion...

I invite you before laughing at us please read Bhagavad Gita in the positive spirit once and understand the Spirituality lying inside that Book... I do not mind you laugh, desecrate or attack the Book because I believe my God is Omnipresent and he will take care of Himself... We need not fight over Him... He who has created know the qualities of his creatures.....

Submitting....
