Firstly i'm not here to argue with what you stated in your reply to the original poster, but even you must know that there are certain groups in the uk and i'm guessing other countries who do hand out leaflets with explicit instructions on carrying out forcefull conversions to Islam some of these groups have carried out public conversions in the UK.

I my self am sikh and I am extremely tolerant towards other religions, yet i have seen muslims openly praise groups like these and these very same muslims then go on to say that the Quran doesn't state that they have to forcefully convert.

These leaflets instruct in one particular case to convert Sikh girls as they are "slags" and "easy" to get. It also encourages them to use shortened names so that they can be confused for being indian such as Mohan (Mohammed), to wear the Kara (one of the 5 sikh religious symbols) and that if they convert one person they will go to heaven.

Now I've been handed one of these leaflets myself, so i know these groups exist but I want to know why these people are allowed to do this if its against Islam. Surely as one of the duties to being a good muslim and to Allah is to stop people using the name of Islam in this way and tarnishing your religion? If that is the case why are they openly allowed to get away with acts like this and from my observations much to the approval of some muslims
