When thousands of hindus walked into the city of Gujurat and raped, murdered, burned and blew up muslims in the name of thier religion; killing the "nfidel cow eating muslims" no one ever said Hinduism is now officially violent.

Ehsan I a non muslims citizen of India. When you speak of the Gujrat riots you forget that it was the Muslims who have pre planned burning a whole train full of Hindu pilgrims before the voilence was incited. So you should double check your facts before you speak. Moreover this was for the first time in the history of hindus that they reacted so strongly. Why dont you mention the millions of hindus and Sikhs who were massacered by the muslims during the Parttion of India, while these people were fleeing to find a safe haven in India. The cow eating infedeils you said......... let me tell you something Hindus venerate the cow. Inspite of this fact Muslims slaughter cows not just in India but all over the world. Hindus donot kill mulims in India for this. Hindus are forcibly converted and killed in countries like bagladesh and Pakistan. Do the Hindus in pay back in kind to the muslims living in India. If they had there would not have been any Muslims left here.

this is just one example.

christians, jews, catholics, et cetera have all done notorius things in the name of thier religion but it only sticks back to the faith in the case of Islam.

Yes they have. But the point here is that Islam is the only religion which promises reward in the afterlife to its followers for killing non Muslims. True there are similar instances in the OT, however these incidents are limited to that particular time. The OT does not ask Jews to kill each and every non Jew till there are just Jews left on this plannet, nor does the Bible tell Christians to slaughter non Christians and subdue them into paying Jizziyya.

Ehsan, I do not hate Muslims, because there are many Muslims who do not agree with this philosophy of voilence and killing, however when it comes to Islam I hate it just like I hate Nazism and White Supremist philosphies.
