Dear Mr Siddhartha Chatterjee,

You are from India and having a great knowledge in religion especially in Koran ,and i think you are not an ardent (i cannot call you a nonmuslim ) so please send me your E MAIL ADRESS so that i will contacts you and share some knowledge regarding Vedas, Geeta and other Hindu religious Books .Again iwould like to inform you that Ihave read a book in Urdu named 'HAQUE- E -ELAHI whose author name is also MR Siddhartha chatterjee and he also have a great knowledge and he also raised many logical Points and trying to estabilished the Missing thoughts which the religious clergyman have hidden from the general people and making them the slaves of their thoughts. A mussalman is not allowed to go beyond the translation which is given by the Muslim Mullas .Here i am giving you an example from mr siddharth chatterjee Books .In Sura 2 / 223 This aiyat always confused me. In translating this Aiyat all the renowed scholars have written that the women were meant for sex only.But when I read from Mr siddhartha Chatterjee book ,I was shocked (as my hands touched a 440 volts .)He clearly writes that the word which used here is' NISA' in Arabic it mean' Women' not Wife as describe by the Muslim scholars .

In this connection He said a mans relation with the women in a family are Mother,Sister,Wife and Daughter ,and they remain within the protection of the male .But if this Aiyat is explained by the Muslim clergyman , then it mean Wives and it will be enjoyed as one wishes .Here i enclosed you my E MAIL vohra.alam@yahoo.in Your early reply will be appreciated thanking you .Haji jahangir alam
