Dear Shri Devi,

Islam is absolute as it is form Allah and Allah does not make errors. A true muslim is one who submits his will to Allah as directed by him through Islam. The best muslim was Muhammad (PBUH). When Prohpet Muhammad started preaching Islam, non-believers stonned him many a times and seriously injured him, yet he prayed to Allah to show them right path. He pardoned all of them when muslims came to power.

Yes our Prophet lives close to our hearts and we can not accept any insult to him and to our religion. But violance is not allowed. Such silly things are done as per a plane by non-muslims. We muslims have options to organise peaceful protests, use court of law and finally stop buying products from such countries. But killings and violence are absolutely not allowed in Islam.

Dr Zakir has given very good example. If you want to check performane of a car, measure it from its characteristics and not by getting it driven by a person who does not know driving. Please judge Islam from its idology and not form the bad behavior of a muslim. Dont you have extremest Hindus who keep killing muslims and rape muslim women in India. Look at muslims, yet all the Middle East muslim countries have accommodated millions of Hindus. Because they know all the Hindus are not extremists.

There is a media war going on against Islam, so please dont say what appears in newspapers is right. West is totally biased towards Islam. It has nothing to do with reality. Islam does not preach anything negative and inhuman. Tell me one verse in Holly Quran which allows terrorism.

Some muslims have resorted to violence because of the injustices of the West and USA, but teachings of Islam do not support it. If muslims are at war with enemy, they are to kill the soldiers not the civilians.

Many things happening in Pakistan are not Islamic. Again Islam has nothing to do with it. If there is a clash between Shia or Sunnis, it has no room in Islam. All those who believe in Allah ,Prophet Muhammad and in Quran--- are all muslims. Poor, uneducated people are used to disturbe the situation.

I hope you will come out of your biased approach towards Islam. If a muslim by name does somthing wrong ,you are at liberty to say so and so has done this but dont say Islam has preached him to do it.
