West needs to recognise true islam

Reader comment on item: [The American Muslim Council:] 'Mainstream' Muslims?
in response to reader comment: Islam - The religion of PEACE

Submitted by Tarique Anwar (India), Mar 19, 2006 at 01:47

I get an impression that west is bent upon destroying this very beautiful religion of islam. They must know that their forefathers had also tried it to their level best, but failed miserably. Islam survived your thrashings each time because of its inner beauty, its inert strength and also because of the forbearance of its brave soldiers. There is no point in figthing a lost battle, instead you should concentrate their efforts in directions that help yourselves.

I just hope that sanity wins, in these troubled times...
