in response to reader comment: i am now Usha Kumari, formerly known as Salma Noor

God bless you, Usha. There are rapists and hoodlums within every religious community. However, most Muslim men tend not to be able to control their urges because there is no tradition of yoga practice of self-restraint within Islam. It is well known also that a meat based diet increases one's basest passions. Vegetarianism is frowned upon in Islam, hence the concsiousness tends to be at lower levels that what Hindu, Buddhist and Jain people possess.

I wish Usha well with the rest of her life, and I would have wished her well even if she had not converted to Hinduism. That's the difference: Hindus are taught to treat everyone as having sparks of the divine paramatman; Islam only cares aout its own adherents.
