Hi Ahmed,

sorry couldn't answer your posts because mansoor is eating much of the bandwith.. anyhow, you seem to be a rationalist and that is probably why i dont see any point of disagreement with you. here i must say the world should follow Indian Muslims, They are a shining example of what a secular environment can do to a muslim's progress.

An islamic state imposes too much emphasis of religious practices on the resident muslims leaving too little space for reforms. The education systems of the madarssas, islamic schools waste too much resources on Koranic studies / Islamic sciences etc. This i think is the biggest hurdle in the progress of muslims.

India has produced emminent scientists like our great ex president A. Kalam, our actors , sportsmen businessmen like Wipro Chief Azim Premji , all shine in their respective feilds. Also when he is occupied with his own passion, he forgets everything and strives for the excellence in his chosen field just like any other individual... Thats why you will see local indian muslims are less involved in the jehadi movement...

I also agree with you that women need to assert themselves and imbibe the true religion of humanity, that can be in the garb of Islam.. no problem, to thier children and create a new generation of modern rationalists.

All i can say is the sooner the better..

yours truly

Proud Indian
