It is important to study the religion before commenting on it

Reader comment on item: "How Dare You Defame Islam"

Submitted by Betty (United States), Oct 27, 2002 at 01:37

What is needed is an understanding of the Islamic principles.

Islam does not carry any bad principles that Muslims are trying to ignore or silence. It is simply a matter of lack of understanding of Islamic ideals on the part of the West.

Feeling deeply hurt and humiliated, it is not surprising to see such violent reactions. People who defame Islam have to have a full understanding of the Quran and Islam and then they can say whatever, but in many cases they do not have a complete understanding.

This is what, I think, makes people angry, I guess!!! I have heard this from many friends! It's sad!!!
