To Harrak:
Hello muslim brother. You seem to be ignorant of some basic facts. You will lose your credibility if you start publishing untruths and your readers are going to ignore you. I am a muslim woman living in India. I ,along with the rest of the educated world . know that the "zero" was invented in India. Before you start spewing forth your exalted proclamations, get facts straight.

When the world publishes some real facts about our prophet Mohammed, hope you will not have an apoplectic fit and die. People who gather information about our prophet are going to publish the fact that at age 54, he took a fancy to a child and made her his wife.. She was 9 years old....she was playing with her dolls. Her name was A'isha ( she was my namesake). What do have to say about this?

Someone will probably draw a cartoon of this event some day. What will you do then. We cannot hide this fact for long now. We have made too much noise around the world and woke up the infidels. They will dig up this carefully guarded secret, will they not?
