Reader comment on item: The Evil Isn't Islam

There are many things wrong with the comment posted. First of all, some of the things mentioned are completely false. Pakistan was not peacefully handed to Muslims by Indians. India has had its share of sectarian violence and insurgencies that continue today over Kashmir. Second, even if any of the events are in fact true, it does not mean that Islam it's self is dangerous. This claim being made is without any solid proof or rational to it.

How some people practice their faith or any crimes they commit is not a representation of everyone else or the religion it self. It is completely ridiculous to say that the way a small group of people act is proof of the incompetence of their religion. The person who wrote this is clearly making these claims based on their emotions and their own prejudices. When someone wants to make such a claim, he or she should be able to prove it!
