Well its pretty simple isn't it. You love your pork, i have no issues with it. As long as you dont make me eat pork with you, or insist on making people eat it if their religion stops them from doing so. i don't understand why is protesting against something which you consider wrong is such a problem. i have a right to protest against what i believe is not right in a lawful way. In fact i think that someone who doesn't protest against something he/she considers inappropriate is pretty pathetic.

we muslims will continue to preach what we think is right. It is our duty to do so. Every follower of every religion owes this to their religion. They should do it too, and the results at the end of the day will speak for themselves. Hurting people in the process is just not right is not an acceptable phenonmenon and will not help you in spreading the right message. I have gone through a lot of such weblogs. I see one thing very frequently. Most of the times i see christians or hindus or someone else really downright abusing muslims and their religion. Abusing their prophet. i rarely see a muslim abusing Jesus , i never see a muslim saying Bible is not the word of God. Why is that so? why can' you guys preach without offending our religion. Does that make any sense?, and someone coming from that can't be spreading the right message i don't intend to start a fight. I just think we should just grow up and deal with real problems in life , which is definitly not trying to prove that us muslim or anyone from any religion is basically just .... Peace!
