Reader comment on item: Will Geert Wilders Show His Film on the Koran[, Fitna]?
in response to reader comment: Some freedom of the press

Submitted by Ahmed Al-Ali (United Arab Emirates), Feb 18, 2013 at 14:35


was interested in your comments and the sources from the Quran and Hadith that was attached to your comments thread.

As a muslim I would like to introduce myself and my purpose of writing or replying to your thread, and I would like to understand your thoughts about Islam as a religion and the presence of Muslims in Europe and around the world.

I would like to assure you I am not here to threaten, insult or wage an argument against you but I would like to engage in peaceful dialogue because I am a practising muslim and would like to speak to you and understand more about your thoughts and perhaps fears towards Islam.

The reason why I decided to respond on this thread is because the religion I practice has an appearance to be menacing and unwanted and I would like to clarify things.

Hope you are willing to give some of your time to discuss.

Thanks and regards.
