Hello, Prashant. You said,

"If Muslims can leave their religions at home when they leave home in the morning and pick it up when they come back --a thing that we all do-- that itself will solve 80% of the problem."

Your perception may be a major part of why we are at loggerheads with the Muslims. For your information, neither I nor anyone I know well leaves their religion at home when they leave for work.
