in response to reader comment: To prove the case, throw in the whole thing

Dear beg, you neither did understand my point nor Daniel pipes.

I replied to your following unjustified a bunch of opinions..
"There are millions of uneducated superstitious Muslims in South Asia, for instance, who do a lot of things that are not even within Islam but they do it because of influences of Hinduism"

you would have given e.g without pointing others for wrong doing (not like anything good goes to Islam and bad things for others) .

As far as Mr. Pipes article is concerned it has more profound meaning. try to understand it
before shouting. The person who locked up 4 girls is living in the western society (among free
thinkers, where you can practice your own religion unlike Saudi Arabia) and he was an
immigrant once. In order to live peacefully there he can't isolate himself/his ideas. He has to
mixup with the surroundings (just natural law). Because he is there by choice of his own and
no body forced him to live in the free society. Once he is there he is abide by local rule &
laws. Since local law doesn't want to promote religious practices in public such as veiling (
obiviously it will try to distinguish people from diff. sects) & since this guy couldn't protest
the law directly, he went against it indirectly by not allowing his children to go to school.
But he also locked them in the apartment , it's a crime on the face of humanity.
We wanted to teach them only Koran. What's going on here in his mind ? Don't you see
any problem with this guy living in the western society who is apposing to mix up with
them, defying to follow their rule ? Isn't there a potential threat to western society ?
Don't you see any correlation based upon his behaviour ?

Well to you this may not seem be a threat but certainly it is for them where this kind of
people are living (all over the world)..keeping themselves isolated. Now you may associate
the western culture for their alienation rather than their reluctance to mixing up with them/
respect their culture ? And this is where my replies come into picture "DON'T BLAME
OTHERS, Introspect yourselves, find out the problems and solve them by yourselves".

By the way your other e.g of teenager boy voilating traffic signal is absurd & irrelevant here.
This tactics also didn't work (for which I had told to come with other tactics).

Anyway articles like this will keep coming . You will keep denying them or by pointing others
you will keep justifying them/your religion and no end to that.

My point is understand the root cause and prevent it's ramification. Otherwise there is no
end to this endless debate.
Submitting....
