Dear Prashant, dear Dr Pipes,

As usual, I do agree. And I go even beyond:

I wish Muslims from all over the world became free and got rid of the tightening clothing that ties their mindset. They would stop believed in the dajjal, Jannah and, of course, Jahannam because these are just fables that make them equally vulnerable and dangerous. They would stop feeling scared by their actions and ashamed of being humans while, at the very same time, feeling superior to others for pretending on the majority of the occasions to adhere to their obsolete thinking. Getting married would be a love decision, not a business arrangement and an enslavement contract for women.

They would understand that what matters is their daily acts, being a sensible and sensitive person, being caring towards others, being cooperative towards others so this world can function and progress forward. They would understand that people's hearts is what matters, not to whom they're praying. They would embrace arts, freedom to express themselves, creativity and flexible thinking.

No more revenge and land-conquering ambition because there would be no need anymore. For a fact, it never was. No more punishment for talking about someone who was nothing but another person with no gift but several disorders. Someone who, if having had any credit, I think the bad he spread outweighed the good a long time ago. No more kneeling and prostration for a God who is far away from love terms but demands blind submission under the punishment threat.

As long as Muslims don't understand this, they cannot fit in this world. At least not in ours, where they are so eager to be a part of, so they will try to make us all fit in their cage by force. One might think this is an exaggerating statement. But yes, they do when converting their Western women. That's only the first step.

I know it's next to impossible to achieve this awareness, this spiritual awakening, this realisation. But, hey, it's my dream!
