ZAKY 'KNOW THE TREE BY ITS FRUIT' What Islam is giving to the worid is not peace . Everywhere it is in fighting.

Regarding Taqiyya ; based on sevral koran versus and hadiths muslims practice this. they are doing this even for building mosques .Near public places ; where construction of religious buildings are prohibited by law in our places (INDIA) they make a building quoting some other use and on a fine morning convert it into a Msque. Once the mosque is functional our law in most cases will allow to continue its functioning. It happened in my place in Kerala, India.

Mainly based on the following versus muslims practice Taqiyya

koran 16: 108 ... unless it be one who is forced and whose heart is quiet in the faith...

Koran 3:27 ... If you hide that which is in your breasts, or if you show it, God knows it...

Some interpret Muhammad to have performed taqiyya, too, when migrating to Yathrib (later Madina) instead of risking his life staying in Mecca.

In my opinion a religion which allows its follwers to say lie is anyway not divine.
