Dear Jaladhi,

Islam is what is written in Quran and the Hadits (sayings of Muhammad peace be upon him). If a closed minded mullah living on mountains do any thing which is not allowed in Islam then how can any normal person accept that this act is allowed in Islam.

I am a muslim and try my best to follow Islam. As per Quran I am not allowed to drink alcohol and get drunk. If you see me drinking will you say that drinking is allowed in Islam. Likewise, I gave you examples but I dont understand why such a simple thing you fail to understand. Studying is compulsory for muslim men and women as it is compulsory for them to pray, fast, give charity and perform Haj. For a muslim who is true follower of Islam, destroying school whether it is for girls or boys is like destroying a mosque. Muhammad(PBUH) said, teaching someone for one hour is better than praying whole the night.

If Talban are destroying girls' schools on the pretext that girls are not to go out of home to study then they are totally wrong. As per Islam girls have all the rights to go to schools and even to mosques five times to pray.

Taliban or any XYZ mullah is not the authority on Islam, Islam is what Quran and Hadits preach. If you want to know what Isalm preaches please watch "Peace TV " now on the air in USA as well. Discuss Islam with some Americans who have accepted Islam. Meet Mr Yusuf Estes, an American( ex-preacher of Christanity, now peaches Islam on Peace TV). Ask him why he accepted Islam. He is a great follower and preacher of Islam now. All the true Christanis had accepted Islam when it was revealed on Muhammad (PBUH). Because the true book of Christains(called Ingeel), had mentioned signs of the next and the last Prophet i.e Muhammad(PBUH). As per Islam there was only one religion " ISLAM" revealed by Allah on all the Prophets, and there followers were muslims. Its we who have given them the names of Christains or Jews, in fact they were muslims . Muslims have to believe in all the Prophets and the books given to them.

However, the last Prophet is Muhammad(PBUH) and Quran is the book to be followed till resurrection. Previous Prophets and the books given to them were for that time only.

If any so-called muslim cuts the neck of innocent person, his punishment is death. It is not allowed in Islam. Even a prisoner of war is supposed to be treated nicely even though he might have killed thousand of muslims in war during action.

By the grace of Allah I am muslim and will never make any wrong statement. I myself had read in Oman English newspaper "Oman Times" or "Observer" , that two women have be sacrificed by smashing their heads against rocks in search of some hidden treasures. I read it a week ago. Presently I dont have that newspaper with me, if you insist I will make effort to reproduce that news word by word. Jaladhi, I can try to prove my point by logic but I will not make wrong statements, be rest assure.

Why should Iran concoct offences against their youth. Islamic laws are enforced in Iran and they punish offenders as per the law. Why does it bother you. You dont care when USA kills innocent civilians in Iraq and Afghanistan. USA preaches democracy, but supports dictators all over the world. These dictators are tourturing their nation but you dont care. Your soldiers have committed war crimes but they are given minor punishments, you dont care. Bush administration has told lie/given 952 wrong statements, you dont care.

Muslims have all the right to protest all over the world if any thing wrong is said about Islam. But it should be peaceful. Positive actions should be taken. For e.g go to the International court, hold peaceful demonstrations, stop buying items from that country. I dont understand why do you people do things which disturb muslims. If you people have left your religion why do you bother muslims. After all why do you have to say things against Muhammad (PBUH). In fact you people do it as per plans. If you want to prevail peace in this world, you practice your idology and let muslims prectice their religion.

Please dont bother for me. I am at comfort and very happy to be a muslim and pray for you, may Allah open your heart and mind to accept the true path--- Islam, without it you will never get inner happiness and satisfaction.

Last request --- do watch " Peace TV " and discuss Islam with an educated American who has accepted Islam. At least you will get its message. You accept it or not but will know what does it preach. Why 25000 Americans are accepting Islam? Why is Islam the fastest growing religion of the world?
