it is not islam that obstructs human development and progress rather the muslims attitude towards contemporary issues rates the Muslims backward. Islam is not only a religion but a socio-Economic cum political order. it warrants humans unqualified submission before God.

islam commands human enlightenment and moderation and believes in human equality .islam is a religion that is not restricted to Muslims only .It is a sum of belief systum that advocates any acts or deeds that exalts human,s dignity . Any act of goodness and betterment for living beings (humans,animals birds and plants etc) and the whole universe is a part of islamic teaching .islam severely forbids any act of militancy of whatsoever nature. the Western world should need to explore and understand the true essence of islam so that many a conflicts confronted between islam and western world would recede.
