. Do you know how many million people were killed in the name of Christianity? In crusades and other religious wars millions of people killed? Who killed them? How many million people were killed by wars between different ancient kings and rulers? How many people were killed in WW1 and ww2 ? Please tell me which fighters went to Malaysia or Indonesia with message of Islam? it was mere Muslim traders? When people saw honesty of Muslim traders those days people willingly accepted the message of Islam. This is what happened in most of subcontinent as well. Moreover, unlike Hinduism Islam does not have caste system: People are born freely and each and every one is equal in front of God according to Quran: White has no preference over black or Arab over Non-Arabs or One Tribe over other tribe. Every soul is equal in the eye of Almighty Allah: It is piety that brings man near to God. Not your wealth or your cast or tribe.

Do you know who put conditions such as not to kill women, children, elders and clergies in the battle. It was Prophet Muhammad not so called western nations. Why do not you speak against the injustice done in the name of terror on war? How many millions people have been killed in the name of war on terror? Who invaded Iraq/Afghanistan?

Muslims ruled India for seven hundred years, as you claim if Muslims were people of missionaries why do you think majority of Indians are still Hindus. They should have been converted by Muslims during Muslim rule. But this did not happen but Hindus remained as Hindus during Muslim rule because there is no compulsion in religion. Any one wants to accept Islam should do so on freewill. You can not change hearts by force. it is through free will people choose the way of life they want and consequently they are accountable for that choice when they die..

In most parts of world before Islam, women were treated inhumanly like slaves. In Europe women got voting rights and property right only some decades ago. It was the prophet of Islam who liberated women from all sort of slaveries and all rights. Sometime you may be confused between culture and traditions of some Muslim people and Islamic teachings. Please do not judge Islam looking at some behaviour of some Muslim people. Please read history and read the Quran with the open mind and you will know true facts. Ignorance is our enemy number one.
