in response to reader comment: Ashiqi's typical muslim wickedness

G. Vishvas,

But traditional Indian religion does not paint others as "dhimmi" and call for them to either convert or be killed, so we wouldn't expect Muslims to be forced to accept polytheism. The real problem with Muslims, is there is no way for them to live and let live. Wherever they go, once their numbers are high enough, they implement shari'a courts and force everyone to live under Islamic law.

If Muslims wish to be welcomed in the rest of the world, they need to be welcoming. Otherwise they will always be viewed as a threat. One main problem with them is they don't believe in separation of religion and nation. That is an important principle if people are to live together peaceably and be free to have their own beliefs.

Another thing is they have turned women into such secondary human beings, it may be centuries before they are finally considered fully human, and not just brood mares, sex objects, and slaves for men. Women have left cultures all over the world to find places where they can be free to be fully human, and Muslim women have been denied entrance to the U.S. many times because Islam is considered their "religion" and they are not viewed as human rights refugees. Very sad indeed.
