Dear Respected Shamsud,

I respect all human beings through the angle of Humanity. The problems in the current century started recently in the last 50 years. All were least bothered about Islam or Muslims, particularly Indians were unaffected largely by the happenings in the world.

The torch of search had started after September 11, 2001. Lots of innocents died there with a highly professional terrorist attack. Who rejoiced at these murders? Mainly muslims or slightly the leftists (Soviet bloc.)

It initiated an inside search for the meaning of these killings and what motivated these killings? The spread of Internet had such an impact here in India that we can see what is happening in every part of the world.

Some 10 years I had no interest in Islam. But the merciless killings everywhere in the world, in India, Pakistan and everywhere provoked all to go deep into Islam. An intellectual war is going in the world. Personally I do not have any problem in depicting our Gods in any manner suiting to the opponents but without killing the followers. After all Our Gods resides in our minds.

But some cartoons about Mohammed can create mass murders all over the whole world. A woman can be murdered since she named a terry bear Mohammed. A bangladeshi cartoonists can be jailed since he has drawn Mohammed in his cartoon. A father can kill his daughter since she did not wear the Hijab. So everybody are going to deeply study Islam worldwide... we do not hate you Muslims or your Prophet... but in order to discourage the new terrorists army which is increasing day by day the civilized world have to attack the fundamentals of Islam. It is natural.. See the hardcore Islamists shouting in London that Innocents can only be in Islam. All others are Kufrs.

Once the myth of the Islamic takeover of the world is destroyed then only there is a possibility of the world possible. Sufism is OK in the world, but the mainstream do not recognize them. Ahmediyas are trying to revive but nobody will allow them. Where r the peaceful Muslims demonstrating against the Islamists? Nowhere in the world. The terrorists have highjacked Islam and now u have to them through whatever method possible. Then only a reformed Islam is possible.

Hate will create only hate only, I know. But when Taslima Nasrin has to run for her life, ( She did not kill anybody, she is not a murderer, She is only propagating her ideas.) and salman rushdie can not live in India, Vincent vangogh was murdered for his film, 100s were murdered for the cartoons, the Humanity have to rise above the Religion and protect the innocents.

Dear Mr. Advocate did you think about the fact that wherever there are Muslims in majority there are problems of dictatorships, Human rights, brutal killings, destructions, rapes, honour killings, corruption. Examples r in plenty, kashmir, Palestine, ( We here in civilized world protect endangered species of all animals from disappearing from the world.) Why u Muslims cannot protect the Jews instead of killing them? Why cannot Kashmiri Muslims protect Kashmiri Pandits from extinction?

You are declaring that all Humans are Muslims by your definition then what is the need of conversion to your religion and why you kill or socially outcast who become aposates in Islam? ( All religions are equal according to you. Is it not?

Finally one simple question to u. Your dear prophet had 12 wives. How can he satisfy all wives democratically, lovingly of different desires, different ages, and different backgounds? How can he treat all his wives as intellectually independent, with independent brains, independent thoughts and independent visions? Can U consider him a model for the whole world. ( First wife Kadija double his age, Aysha was 6 when he was > 50, he had lust in his son's wife who was made his wife.). Ur reasoning may be Prophet can do whatever he likes. but then he ceases to be a Prophet.

Can Sheik Hasina and Kalida Sia share one Husband? ( Since you can have 4 wives?)

Think about these and start defending us and opposing the Terrorists. We have to oppose the terrorists on whatever method possible. ( without killing.). I do not have any problem Allah taking over the whole world without a bloodshed. you convince the good things and of course we become your followers. But not through the merciless killings and violence.

Thanks for replying and since you are an advocate i know that you may support us on certain points. Islam conradicts democracy. Let Islam live in the houses and Mullahs leave the mosques and I think there are some chances of survival of Islam.

Go to investigateislam.com and see the fights between the Muslims and Christians. ( I do not personally endorse Christian Prince but if he can drain some Hardcore Islamic bloods with AK 47s in their hands it may be good for the world.)

Regards Peace to all of you in Bangaladesh, my regards to all those who lost everything in the recent cyclones. ( Try to separate state and religion then there are some chances of recovery to BD.)

Actually Bangali Bloods are more stronger in Bangladesh than Muslim blood. Hope for a strong, healthy wealthy and less violent Bangladesh.

Regards to all once more.

Shri Devi
