Hello Thiagan,

Wow. I was shocked by your "list" but it gives an idea how tough India has had to be in order to keep the Muslim population and the religion of Islam in line. By my math the Muslim population of India is around 13%.

It amazes me that the percentage of Muslims in any given country directly reflects the amount of Muslim-sponsored violence; the higher the Muslim number, the more likely the violence. The only apparent slight decrease is if countries maintain strict regulatory measures with regards to things such as deportation (of whole families, as you mentioned) and immigration of Muslims, profiling, etc. In other words, countries that maintain different, strict standards towards Muslims seem able to handle the increased Muslim population; violence still erupts, but to a lesser degree.

Thank you for your interesting letter. It gives a "window" into what the "West" has to look forward to if they don't wake up.
