My dear friend....

Ford is still used by people now adays..when you go to buy a car dont you check the overall perfomance of a car? faulty one nobody wants it.. What I am tryiing to say is you cannot judge a religion by its practicers!!I think its very much common sense that religion and every apsect of life is manipulated by people!

You say that a religion is judged by its followers then what about christianity?what are christians doing around the world ,how many people are being killed by christians in iraq??is that wht christainity teaches? Domestic violence occurs every 4 minutes in America,yet 74-76% of the population is considered"christians". Less than several percent are actually Muslim. Out of about 300 million Americans only 2-8 millions are muslim. So why aren"t people up in arms about Christianity and calling it a religion that causes violence? Because the Truth is clearer than Falsehoods. We all know that Christianity is not a person and we all know that the actions of adherents are often differrent than the teaching of christianity,so we consciously separate the "christians" and their actions from christianity.What I like to ponder is ..why isn"t the same standard applied to Islam and Muslims?

The reason lies in the intention of the individual.Those who truly wants to know about Islam and muslims you have to learn the Quran and hadiths.Poeple you have spoken about Islam in your other mailsdonnot represent Islam. If Islam is the faulty one then why do so many people embrace Islam?Islam is the fastest growing religion in the world! Pls note its individual which causes violence its not what Quran and hadiths teaches.Even in todays day and age people cannot look into the reasons for things that happen around the world .Its easy to blame on muslims.The people you have complained about have manipulated religion to serve their own purose.Blame it on the tendencies for males to fight for dominance if you like!SoPLS learn the religion by its scriptures not by the followers.LEARN IT CURIOUSLY!
