Sir have you read the Koran?

"There is no compulsion in religion. Verily, the Right Path has become distinct from the wrong path..." (Qur'an 2:256)

No forcing, period.

If I said the Bible forces that I would be lying even though I can easily say "Christians forced millions to Christianity" but it doesn't mean its a teaching of the Bible.

If forced conversions did happen throughout the Muslim World as some anti-Islamic groups claim, can I ask what army went to Malaysia and what army went to Indonesia (the largest populated Muslim country in the world)?

Peace
