in response to reader comment: Debanjan Banerjee is not honest enoughto tell the full story

It is so simple here.

The West (thanks to all the mainstream Western propaganda) does seem to the common Muslim as a great place to immigrate for many in the developing world including Muslims from war-torn countries.

There is no law in Quran that forbids Muslims to travel to non-Muslim lands for better economic prospects. In fact the Prophet(PBUH) encouraged his followers to migrate to Ethiopia , a prosperous Christian country from the Meccan Pagans.

So my question is why do you oppose this immigration ?

I believe the Westerners did immigrate to the new World some centuries before fleeing war and persecutions in Europe.

So why oppressed people (thanks to Western wars in the West Asia) cannot be allowed to freely move to the West ?

Take care
