Submitted by faisal (India), May 22, 2006 at 06:57

Mr Biswas i m totally not agreed with your opionions, Fascism is fascism and its the darker part in all religions. Islam is not an instrument of arabic hegemony first thing , More muslims dont know Arabic and only arabs know Arabic . Arabic is a language which all muslims use to offer prayers like Hindus use Sanskrit and Jews use Hebrew and only Christians offer prayers in every language.

And you told this "Islam has destroyed many non-arabic scripts, languages, cultures and identities in the past 1400 years" here also i m not agreed with you .Whatz the language of Iranians , Indians , Indonesians and many other more Muslims of other parts and in every country muslims did accepted the culture of that country , Indian muslims are one of them.

Islamic contributions are these ,

Great Historian Gibbons: He wrote in his fifth volume of "Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire" that the science of Chemistry owes its origin and improvements to the Muslims.

Trigonometry / Sine / Tangent / Co. - Tangent : The Arabs developed these and Ibn Musa's work "Hisab-Al Jab-Wal Muqabala" (meaning the Calculation of Integration and Equation) presented 800 examples in the eight century. His work was translated from Arabic into Latin and until the 16th century, it was Europe's main text book on the subject.

Geometry / Algebra: An other great mathematician was Omar Khayyam, who offered to the world geometric as well as algebraic solutions of the second degree. Nasiruddin wrote the treatise on the quadrilateral trigonometry, as well as plain and spherical geometry.

Physics: Kamaluddin examined the refraction of sun light in rain drops and actually offered an explanation of the genesis of primary and secondary rainbows. The story of the invention of the pendulum and the presentation of a water clock to Emperor Charlemagne by Harun Al Rashid is well known.

And many more things are there and still muslims around the world are doing .

About the population aggression , urs thinking is too strange in here .Its the biggest problem of India these days and in this also u would like to blame muslims.
