Reader comment on item: Predicting a Majority-Muslim Russia
in response to reader comment: Did Muslim forced Islam on anyone?

With all due respect, almost every single point of yours is complete ...

Not a single country that was part of the former Caliphates retains it's former religions or customs. The Goddess Ishtar, once worshiped across Central Asia and the Middle East, is a footnote in History; Zoroastrainism is extinct; the sole reason Indian Zoroastrians-Parsis- still survive is because Hindus fought to ensure their safety from Muslim hordes. Malyasia was converted by force- or did you forget that North India -the base of Islamic rule in India was the most powerful political region in the World during the Middle ages? Indonesia followed soon after!

As for India? The sole reason Hindus still survive in India is because they fought for nigh 1000 years for their very lives.

Tell me more about this ... religion of yours- ...
