What a bloody Joke.

Not Necessary, you claim that Islam is a practical religion, and that the Media and others are creating propaganda against Islam. Lets for the sake of this article say ok, i believe you. I frankly dont. but dont have time to go into this.

You claim that as a Muslim you adhere to the 5 pillars of Islam as seen below, this is very commendable, and for that i whole heartly congratulate you. However please don't ever make the assumption that you, Muslims or Islam are the only people or religion to do and have such. Below is simple proff that Islam is not the only religion to have 5 Pillars, in fact many other like Hinduism have more then 5.

I speak of Hinduism as i am a devout Hindu and don't feel i should speak on behalf of other religions, although i truly welcome their input.

1) Accepting ALLAH[SUB] as the only god and Mohammed [peace be upon him] as his prophet.
Every person who practices any religon accepts that the god that they worship is the only and only. Even within Hinduism, we accept that Vishnu is the supreme god, we however acknowledge that he takes 330 Million forms. So when someone makes the claim that Hindus have 330 Millions god. WRONG, we have 1 god, with 330 Million forms.

2) Pray Five times a day
You my friend should make an attempt to visit a Hindu temple. You will see countless people praying and partaking in something called the "Aarti". It is done 5 times a day, everyday. The Aarti is a prayer offer sincere devotion to God.

3) Pay Zakat (2.5%) of your income to poor and needy.
2.5% is that it, I give 20% to charity every year. 2.5%, bloody hell, and i though the Jew's were tight.

4) Perform HAJJ one in a life time.
Again Hindiusm teaches us to pay a visit to the river Ganga amoungst many other religions locations at least once in our life. Many more like me do it every 5 years, simply as i can afford to and also because as someone who can i feel it a human duty to go and pray for those that can't.

5) Fast during Ramadan
Again Hindu's observer the month of Shravan. We also fast a minimum of once's a month as a mark of respect to god.

As for your claim that if Allah is with you then now one will harm you. My friend i can tell instantly from your very words that you have doubts of whether Allah exist.

How you may ask, simple you wrote. "IF Allah is with us". If you really 100% with your heart knew Allah exists, you would have ommited the "If".

As for Islam giving respect to women, HA HA. no offense, but i have read the constition of Sharia Law and its states in no less than 100 places how women are lower then men, and how women should only be given half of that which men get. Thats not respecting women. Open your eyes sunny Jim.

As for if i want to see Islam, i should look to Muhammed, ok i will and have. I've read the Qur'an. A version i was given my an Imam, not one i just went to waterstones and bought.

Muhammeds life was nothing short of Evil, he killed thousands, persecuted thousands, allows anal sex with boys, married a nine year old. Islam today is exactly like Muhammed, Evil. Islam kills millions, persecutes Million, forces Muslims girls to marry young, forces other to convert to Islam or die.

These are things i have seen and more importantly things i have read in the Qur'an. Not in the media or anywhere else.

You can sit there claiming i am making this up and that Islam is peaceful, perfect and the only true religion. The fact remains, Its Not.
