Dueling fatwas -reply to Plato

Reader comment on item: Dueling Fatwas
in response to reader comment: Curmally: Islam is a problem and everyone but Muslims knows it

Submitted by Fazal Habib Curmqlly (Pakistan), Oct 13, 2010 at 04:15

Greetings Plato,

The problem that we faced was the Din e Elahi which Akbar created to harmonize both islam and the Hindu faith. We had to rediscover Islam. Did you know Dara Shikoh wore a ring bearing the word Prabhu?

Islam does not ties us down or deny us freedom. Yes idolators had to Jaziya or a tax. We have legislated female equality and safety of a women in the work place and from abuse at home. Was sati a Muslim practice? All that I had asked of the other writers was some respect for Islam and not to make fun of our Prophet. Butt it seems that is too much to ask of them. Today its known that Islamophobia exists in the world. Were I to write Jesus on a piece of Paper and give it an American, I don't think he'd care to burn it. The Quran mentions The Prophet Jesus (may peace be upon him) over 25 times and the Prophet Moses (may peace be upon hiim) is mentioned over 120 times. Our Prophet Mohammed (may peace be upon him) is mentioned only four times. They think nothing of this and burn the Quran e Karim. That is the extent of their ignorance. Ignorance of others who live in this world, is a shame and to mock someones beliefs is a greater shame.

This is my reply to you and I will not say any more. I say this because of the history that is shared by us is common and that you haven't forgiven the Muslims for ruling over you for a thousand years. I know the prejudices and I know the Hindu caste system and the hatred that exists between our countries. Let us leave it at that and move on. You go your way and I go mine.

With Regards
