As stated by friend Jaisingh Thakur:

" the Muslims, whether in countries like India ,which they have occupied since the partitioning of the Indian sub-continent in 1947,purely for tactical reasons and the need for survival, rather than any love for secularism or their largely non-Muslim co-nationals"

This is a true reflection of the kind of mentality a fanatic or probably an ignorant would bear... oh i m sure thats not agreed upon as most of the irrational analysts of religious arguments.(...well arguments is a big word .. religious discussions? ) fail to acept their incapability to analyse facts in relation with the information cast on most of the news channels or prints...journals etc, going blindly by what they read or see..or intensionally closing eyes on facts n seeing only the partial truths n carrying about it like "oh always they the cause" attitude...with a kiddish-crybaby attitude.

However, may i ask my friend how much of Islam has he known..not following his instant presumptions or preconceived notions of course?Commenting on anything or any person is not challenging, a bigger deal is to first make an attempt to get to the true details on the given subject and then start your shoot-out camp. Blindly targeting any Religion and passing offending statements about it makes less sense. so what chances you make sense to a person with sound mind.. saying what you do-None?

Well , i suggest you go through the book : "Oh You Hindu Awake!" by Dr. Chatterhee.M.A.,PH.D(U.S.A). hope this will help you understand your religion and the changes and revolutions you first need to make therein-clear . Maybe you can be of some help to the community. its not a very bulky book, try it and yea its banned in india. you will know why when you read it yourself.

If we go about giving lame-tame excuses for how some muslims cause evil, destruction etc etc etc. or how some Hindus carry out their communial discriminant practices in the name of law hiding behind the politics-hood would just go on endlessly...AFTERALL IS THERE EVEN A SINGLE RELIGION WITH NO BLACKSHEEP ?

just imagine if we regardless of who someone is as a person ,start hating on the basis of the religion he/she belongs to. maybe we already got an idea what would hapen considering the sort of communal riots that have been taking place in India lately.

Anyhow. looking at the kind of mindset you reflect it seems pointless to make an attempt to respond .Well lets consider whatever faith you belong to..where did you learn the whole concept of people are to be categorised as criminals or "the culprits" based on whether they are hindus or muslims or christians etc. and to put that straight, where did you pick up the laws that Muslims staying in different countries is not legitimate, calling it "occupying a given nation for tactical reasons"... too shallow a thinking to even reason out isn't It?

More logical would be how people of different religions/regions/customs can start making sense to each other, going a little overboard with their effort into it how they can probably build a common bridge with all other religions. if every individual adopts a positive approach and outlook towards these sensitive issues i am sure it makes things easier, maybe cuz its time to head towards some peace FiNALLy? as they say its never too late.

Its sad how some people are busy as bees althought .putting in their last effort to see to it that they malign or misrepresent others on religious grounds..IGNORING THE FACT THAT THEY ARE NOT IN THE LEAST ELIGIBLE OF TALKING ON THE SENSITIVE ISSUES themselves, and they go around blowing their trumpets of malice and hatred backed by baseless data or reasonings.

BOTTOM LINE .. any religion say :muslims christians or whosoever consider ONLY what they follow and believe in to be right can i expect that you at least let them live with it while you follow what you do n live by it ,without actually trying to direct others assigning a whole new set of rights and wrongs..as per your convenience and believes...if this cant help bring peace it will surely help shun destruction , misunderstandings,riots,hatred from getting more intense. peacE :)

Hajra.
