By The grace of Allah Al mighty I have never applied for Visa to live among you. I am living here in peace. But even then you can't stop any one to live somewhere in the word. To get visa for Job and even to live somewhere by migrating is every human being's right. You can come here to Pakistan I guarantee you the protection. You will be let to live with peace and according to your way of life. We have churches here; we have clubs here and so on.

Now come to the second point. I have appreciated Mr. Pipes' attitude of letting any body whether he criticize him or otherwise to express himself on his space. That is what I tell my colleagues, friends and family members but that doesn't change the reality that ...I disagree with what he utter mostly.

The issues in fact or more serious than these:

Nobody in the Muslim world has criticized rather respected Pope John Paul because of his personality and thinking. Muslims have never resorted to "violence" on any of his statements. Muslims have gone for agitation whenever their beloved prophet their religion and Book is being attacked or abused. For you people the religion is like TV cabal network that you change according to your mood but we who believe in Allah, his prophet and book we have to change and mold our lives in accordance with the teaching of Prophet.

Jihad is a resistance; for you it is terrorism but Qura,an sees it essential, in long run, for the Muslims to defend and try to defeat the aggressor.
