Reader comment on item: [Moderate] Voices of Islam
in response to reader comment: Fact (Muslims are responsible for terrorism in world)

I'd just like to say that you shouldn't generalize all the Muslims on the basis of the actions of a few. What you are referring to are more likely the illiterate people, who actually don't even know how to read and write... and you will find these kinds of people everywhere, not just in Pakistan and not only Muslims.

You can only have the right to comment about any religion when you have personally studied the religion and discussed it with authentic and known preachers. The people who convert to Islam, do not just read the Kalma and become Muslims on the request of some friend or for the sake of a change. They do thorough research on the religion. They obviously knew their own religion and if they still converted to Islam, that shows that they found something in this religion which they couldn't find in their previous religion, or they feel satisfied by the teachings of Islam.

If you really want to argue further on this topic, go to some Aalim (preacher) and argue with him.
