Don't say negative, if you dont know what Islam really is...

in response to reader comment: Islamic is selfish and hateful, not to mention ignorant and arrogant!

I have read all the comments against Islam as well as Pakistan. I am very dissappointed because people never try to discover the true facts about Islam. Instead they accept the facts about what they hear from other people. Most of the Non-muslims have never tried to discover what Islam really is and then they claim negative things about Islam. I really shouldn't blame you because you have grown up hearing from your friends and parents and what your media has portrayed.

Today, I just want all of you to read Koran and try to interrupt the true meaning behind it, whether you believe in this religion (Islam) or not. I am not asking u to have faith in this religion because religion must be practiced freely as stated in Koran that 2:256 "Let there be no compulsion (forcing others) in religion: Truth stands out clear from error...". So, those people who are misrepresenting Islam might not have understood it properly.
