You have really taken time and an element of study study to reply to me this time. For which I am grateful.

I would like you to read your mail addressed to me prior to the last one you just sent. You will find a lot of answers to the questions you have asked me or denied having said such things. That is bad manners.

If Bibi Ayesha (peace be upon her) said such a thing that a goat ate the segment of the Quran e Karim that prescribed stoning, then know the Quran e Karim as it was revealed to the Prophet (peace be upon him) was being written down in the Prophet's (peace be upon him). It was under the Third Righteous Caliph Usman Ghani (peace be upon him) that the final compilation of the Quran e Karim was done and 3 handwritten copies of this uniform Quran e Karim which was agreed upon as complete and final by the associates and friends of the Prophet (peace be upon him). This was done because many of the group who were close to the Prophet (peace be upon him) were dying. So a complete Quran e Karim was available for all times. As for hadiths, there are catagories of hadiths. If you read a hadith the chain of the people who are supposed to have said it , is attached and whether the hadith is a strong one or a weak one is mentioned.

About Hinduism-Islam syncreticism, this was and shall always be a no no. And the Partition of British India is proof of this. We are separate people having separate beliefs and we like it that way. You have your country and you can live and do as you wish in it. We are happy with this arrangement. The fact of the matter is, the Transfer of Assets that belonged to Pakistan has not taken place to date. It really does not matter what Mohtandas Karamchand Gandhi did or what Pandit Jawarharlal Nehru did. Both have since passed on. a few decades ago, Why haven't the assets been transferred?

Read you history and you will see that Jinnah was disillusioned because of the Motilal Nehru Report and this disillusionment ultimately led to the Partition of India. JInnah had asked M.K. Gandhi not to bring religion into politics when he joined the Khilafat Movement and became a leading luminary in it.. It was things like this that divided India by bringing in religion into politics and forcing the Muslims who were the largest minority in India to seek other options to united India. So don't talk of syncretic religions. Akbar made his mistake for political reasons and leave it at that.

Understand, that what Saudi Arabia does, does not apply to us because we follow different schools of law. Islam has 5 schools of law as you may have noted. They follow the Hambali whilst we follow the Hanafi school. is the practice of Hinduism in the Northern part of India same as that which is practiced in the Southern part of Peninsula India? No there is a difference. So you should be looking at that.

The Ahmedis or Mirzais, claim that Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Qadian was revealed certain verses in additions to the Quran e Karim. We the majority do not accept this Proposition that is why the Qadianis or Mirzais are not considered to be non-Muslims as the prophet (peace be upon him) was the seal of all prophets and none would be coming after him. The Mirzais are citizens of Pakistan they can do as they wish and believe as they wish. Saudi Arabia denies them entry, and that is their prerogative. Pakistan never claimed to be a secular state we are the Islamic Republic of Pakistan. So none but a Muslim could be a PM or a President. What is your excuse? India claims to be secular doesn't it ? Did Dr Henry Kissinger ever stand up for the Presidency of the USA or was he the head of a political party that you have given him as an example? Has a Non Christian become the President of the USA? I have read what the BJP had to say about Mrs Sonia Gandhi's candidacy as the PM of India. As for CAIR, it is the premier Muslim site in the USA and in this connection Dr. Pipe's point of view is as good as mine. He is free to like or dislike it as I am free to dislike many sites on the internet.

I would like very much to end this discussion which is on fatwas but we have not said a word about the subject. So no more and this is Final.

With Regards
