Reader comment on item: America's Crash Course on Islam

Submitted by Aamir Ali Ansari (Pakistan), Sep 12, 2007 at 14:18

After going through your article I can realize that some ill minded people claiming to be muslims has damaged the true image of Islam. The fact cannot be ignored that some representatives of western community also contributed in igniting these elements. Understanding that the literacy rate in some of the Islamic countries is below par..this is very true that some terrorist find easy recruits for their wrong doings...

Furthermore, due to lack of access to media this is very easy to divert or misguide poor and illetrate..In countries like Pakistan where there are very remote and unaccessible areas..the government is facing utmost difficulty in communicating its message of peace and development...Infact the negative elements residing in these areas use these pockets for their bad projects..

Understanding true Islam in west is important..but propagating true islam islam in Islamic countries is also a tough task..Being muslim we are also at war with such elements. These uncontrolled elements go against government wishes and programs..are sometimes dangerous for its forces as well..

We must join hands in promoting culture of tolerance and friendship...Attacking Islam is very easy and seems first choice..but not the solution of the problem
