Fasih waffles without giving any argument for Islam or against other religions.Koran clearly states:

88. Then what is the matter with you that you are divided into two parties about the hypocrites? Allâh has cast them back (to disbelief) because of what they have earned. Do you want to guide him whom Allâh has made to go astray? And he whom Allâh has made to go astray, you will never find for him any way (of guidance). 89. They wish that you reject Faith, as they have rejected (Faith), and thus that you all become equal (like one another). So take not Auliyâ' (protectors or friends) from them, till they emigrate in the Way of Allâh. But if they turn back (from Islâm), take (hold) of them and kill them wherever you find them, and take neither Auliyâ' nor helpers from them.

What are quoted above are the verses 88 and 89 from Surah 4 – An-Nisa which has caused blood-letting in the world for 1400 years. Whereas Gita's message is acceptance of everything as given in the following verses of chapter 4:

Established within themselves, they are equal in pleasure and pain, praise and blame, kindness and unkindness. Clay, a rock, and gold are the same to them. Alike in honour and dishonour, alike to friend and foe, they have given up every selfish pursuit. Such are those who have gone beyond the gunas. IV 24 & 25

Fasih should declare himself a Hindu and live out his life blissfully rather than defend an undefendable faith.
