friend,

let me first say something on your first para. what makes you say that islam is not asserting on peace. maybe you must be taking into acount the current act of terrorists as a proof. but who said those terrorists are muslims. they claim it themselves. but what they do is not islamic.

You may say that islam history has wars, but if you clearly read the history ,firstly the war is done on a open land where there are no inhabitants,secondly the islamic soldiers were always less in number compared to its non islamic counterpart, thirdly the non muslim soldiers also were ready for the war,its not islam ran into others land and fought.

dontsay that only islam was involved in war just because islam won the battle. why all are closing the eyes on the act by islam's opponent in the war, after all they had more soldiers and weapons.

islam do have discoveries in astronomy and mathematics. why dont you search on net about it rather than making such a statement like you did. one more thing,we dont believe than only islamic people are blessed in this world. god has the right to bless anyone. he does bless many in this world irrespective of religion.

american effort by donating money to a poor nation by destroying and stealing another ones resource, well i dont believe in appreciating that. and we dont believe in announcing loud what social service we have done in the name of god. if we did announce then our deed attains no value in front of god.

take into account the disasters in philipines, hurricanes in USA, in china. they are not muslims. But still its our duty to think about their situation and beg to god to help them, after all, all are humans. please dont take such sad events as a point to claim the advantage over other religions.whether its pakisthan ,philipines,usa ,india or any country. the life lost is humans'. please donate to their cause of recovery and beg to god for the safety of all good in the world.

you dont have to be frightened about islam. If you are very good to me i shall love you more than a person claiming as muslim but not good in his demeanor .its all humanity that islam teaches.

thats what we all need to enact. learn and implement to be good to others unconditionally and so they will do the same in return and world shall be as peaceful as heaven. fight and suppression is no solution to any problems. harder you throw the ball, faster it bounces back.

please dont say that western countries are doing lot of things great, if you see the pictures of iraq and afghan war, you will never make this claim.after stealing 10 billion and donating one million is not a great act.
plz try to see this world as one. let people believe in their own religion. it will not harm anyone since no religion teaches to kill. if someone does kill ,its defenitely not religious in any sense.

i would also request you not to claim western countries as christian countries, since it will be a biggest remark against their claim as democratic and secular countries.

hope you make comments on any religion in a way that you dont insult the religion and also make an effort to know the truth about any religion rather than keeping a stubborn opinion that our own claims are correct and perfect. i respect christianity becoz it has many good things.so does islam also have good things. but most of the followers in both religion fail to impliment the teachings into their practical life.

if i discover a medicine for cancer treatment its not just useful for muslims but for all god's creation.
same will be the case if you discover it. its blessing to human beings.
please stand as one and save humanity .
your friend
