Dear Uday,

I am glad to see that you have started talking about your religion, Hinduism, instead of criticizing messengers of other religions, which won't make you good Hindu I guess.

I said that
"Every Muslims knows very well that Before Islam Kaaba was full of idols. Then it was cleared from those rubbish"

This sentence doesn't call "idol worshipping" as rubbish as you understood, but It calls idols as rubbish. Please, read the sentence carefully. Let me give an example. If we don't want some objects which are not in use any more at home we call them "rubbish" and put them in a "rubbish" bin. Kaaba is a kind of house of Allah. It was full of idols which lost their function in the eyes of Muslims 14 century ago. Kaaba was cleaned from those rubbish. Therefore, there is nothing wrong with this sentence as you know very well. No need to play with words. What's the name of your God? I don't know your God & idols but you expect me to apologize from them. Why because I called idols, which were used by Arabs 14 century ago, as "rubbish", It doesn't make sense at all. You can't be serious.

Anyway, it is interesting to learn from your emails about what people who worship idols feel and think about God. Are you from India? I still watch documentaries about "Incredible India" on TV. You have very colourful culture. I love Indian food, especially chicken curry. I see some human art figures having long noses like elephants on TVs but I assumed that they are Indian arts, not idols for worshipping.

On this website we are talking about whether Allah is God. How about your God? Is your God different than ours?

Yours
Nuray
