Mr truth ,there is no need to glorify Islam. You can't dilute the allegations against Islam by putting forward these flimsy arguments .It is not the question of human sexuality,or respecting / disrespecting the women or awrding them the civil rights.The real question is about hate & violence towards the Non-muslims.More over your arguments in favour of Islam are either untrue or misleading. How are you going to justify the fact that a Muslim man can have four wives.If it is not for sexual gratifications then for what?

You said-- women should cover their body to avoid sexual advances of men & prevent rape .Tendency to rape a woman is an abnormal bahavior. If I take your argument as true ,in that case most men should indulge in rape whenever they see a nude or scanty clad woman which is not a fact .Whether you commit a rape or not , It all depends on soundness of your mind & social upbringing.Similarly, rape is an offence not only in Muslim countries but in non- islamic states too & all religions condemn this act .So what is great about it in saying that "rape is an offence in Islam".As if in other religions & Non-Islamic states ,rape is a prevelant practice.On the contrary , i find , Islam punishes the poor woman for rape when in fact it is the man who does the crime.

So where does the question of justice arise? So ,if people are judging the Islam in poor light, they are doing the right thing, Because after all truth is always a truth. So let us accept it. No hard feelings ,please
