Prashant, I agree. After all there is nothing spiritual about cursing the Jews and Christians 5 times per day when Muslims recite Surat al-Fatiha, when they pray.

The real problem with Islam is that Allah tells his followers to be in charge of all of humanity either in peace or by force. Other religious traditions tend to view life as a confrontation between order and chaos and finding a balance in this tug war
