respected saladin,

1) Muslims having fallen short of ideals - that is the typical excuse that I hear from muslims. Unless muslims learn to criticise kuran and Mohammad I cannot accept your argument. I have to doubt its sincerity. I see that many of the evils among muslims are also result of the problems in the kuran and in the person of Mohammad. When will muslims have the honesty and the courage to name these problems? It will be for the good of muslims.

2) Hindu fascism exists. But chronologically it is clearly a reaction to islamic fascism. Hindus have started detesting muslims more after realising which islamic fascism and arabic ethno-fascism islam has been imposing since 1400 years. Hindus wearing their religion on the sleeve - the hindus see the muslims doing that same with even greater arrogance. And it will not have gone unnoticed that muslims glorify arabs, turks and many marauders who attacked and plundered India - in fact muslims are taught to be proud of the defeats inflicted on the hindus by the muslim plunderers.

3) Being a traitor to one's country - that can be handled legally and factually . But the concept of being a traitor to god or religion is very dangerous and leads to the worst forms of fascism and violence. The islamic god comes forth as mean god - one who cannot handle those who reject him except by instigating some human beings to kill them.

4) I believe in revelations (plural). I believe that god's revelations do not come to an end. In deed, the idea that islam is the last religion and kuran the last revelation and Mohammad the final prophet is one major reason for islam-caused criminality, violence and closed-minded-ness. Islamic fascism and totalitarianism are founded on this supposed finality of islam (=submission= mental slavery). That is why I said repeatedly that fascism and totalitarianism are inherent to islam, whereas hindu fascism in India is a reaction to it.

5) Do you think it will possible for you discuss these points within your community without fear, anger and polemic? What we need is an anti-islamic jihad among muslims (how you understand the word jihad - I leave that to you). Muslims are caught in a cycle of self-deceit, closed-minded-ness, arrogance and self-justification.
