Dear Mr. Haji Jahangir Alam: Thank you for your reply message. It appears from your words that you hold critical attitude towards Islam. You have the right to express your points of view. But it is always advisable not to hurt anybody's religious feelings. Of course, the facts and modus operandi of any school governed by any faith and its followers may be analyzed from scientific points of view.

As to your point numbered 1: It is always advisable to speak scientifically with evidences. As to Feroze Gandhi, I found the information in various books and magazines. For your specific reference please see The Nehru Dynasty, by K. N. Rao, published from India ( for details, please see: http://www.fulldhamaal.com/interesting-facts/real-truth-of-nehru-dynasty-are-they-ruined-our-india-10423.htm The readers and I shall very much welcome if you please can give some reliable reference against the above book.

Islam is the revised final version of Judaism and Christianity. These religions, in principle, invite all to believe in one God. As such, only those who erroneously worship snake, mouse, dog, penis, stone, sun, or any natural phenomenon etc. are warned not to live misguided. The Koran as a whole wants every human being to believe in one God and follow an ideal life-style, and Prophet Muhammad is an ideal standard. Islam is open and universal.

Your point numbered 2: It is appreciated. I am a fragile 68 years of age. I spent reading and studying religions for more than 50 years. Perhaps I may not be able to give more time to reading of religion anew exhaustively. However, I will look if exact reference is available.

As to your item numbered 3: No comment. Let everybody see and evaluate in the perspective of history.

As to your item 4: For Islam, its messenger Muhammad is not a preacher. He just gave the message he got from God. The book forms The Koran. There can be no question if The Koran has universal appeal and applicability.

Thank you once again for your response.

Best regards.
