I know that only few verses are not sufficient to get broader prospective of Koran, but its true either way, I mean follower of Islam don't read or understand whole Koran and are persuaded with those violent verse......Its not Koran or verses, Its History and you or me can not change it.... you should know about non-violent Buddhists that once lived peacefully in Afghanistan, there are still buddhist temples and many of them are still getting destroyed. What about torelant Hindus that were living in present Pakistan and were and are killed or forcefully converted.

I just wanted to let you know that 100 years ago or 800 years ago there was terror of Islam, when they crushed non violent buddhists in afghanistan, India and destroyed,looted their temples. Forced to accept Islam to Hindus (in current pakistan, afghanistan), native persian(joroastrian) with sword on neck and killed those who did not accept.

I know Islam is having good values and it has a message of peace, but there is something wrong that requires introspection. Most Islamic nations have problem of violence and terrorism currently, they need to calm down and emphasize people with good education of peace and tolerance.

Regards.
