Dear Dr Pipes, It seems that the time has come that no human being on the planet should ignore Islam as just another religion around the corner. Nor should we consider Muslims as just another bunch of believers like everyone else. Danger posed by Islam is real and it shold be openly discussed.

As the world was preparing for the weekend, the Islamic TAIF (thank Allah it is Friday) happened. And, what else happened? Within days of the murder of two school teachers in Kashmir, a Brisish MP (David Amess) was murdered in London (ref1) and another migrant street food vendor was shot to death in Kashmir (ref2). David Amess was killed by a British national of Somali origin. Though the religion of the Somali killer has not been revealed yet, I doubt that this Somali was a Buddhist monk. The street food vendor was killed by our own long-known Kashmiri brothers.

What does a rich and powerful British MP have to do with a poor migrant Indian food seller? They should have nothing to do with each other but in today's world we are all related to each other through Islam. We all are hostages of Islam. Food vendor Aravind Kumar was an infidel brother of David Amess. We all are infidel brothers of each other.

Muslim scholars, academicians, clergies, and journalists --who occupy our podiums-- must not be allowed to remain silent. They should be questioned relentlessly.

When no one else is now allowed to create theocracies in the world, Muslims must also mot be allowed their private enclaves all across the planet. Islamic nations need to justify their legitimacy. Deliberate efforts to create Muslim majority regions in the world need to be challenged. The, so called, "wars of independence" whose sole purpose is to create more newer theocracies should be treated as illegitimate.

It does not matter what Quran says about separation of church and state. If it says that it is Muslim's right to rule non-Muslims in non democratic setups, then Quran should be amended.

I write because I want the word to spread. And, I want people to speak and question. There is a real danger lurking around us. Perhaps, Islam is God's order for humanity but it needs to be relentlessly questioned till the hell freezes. Only then, murders by Muslims should be considered routine.
