Reader comment on item: Is Tariq Ramadan Lying [about Magdi Allam]?
in response to reader comment: God and reason

I am a HIndu and living in the Middle East for the last 25 years

I have studied the mindset of Muslims, Christians, Hindus, Budhists deeply. I know Arabic and can read Quran in Arabic language and deeply analysed each words. I have to agree with most of the pro and anti people's arguments. Not in essence, but in its emotional level.

History of mankind is progressive. Mankind progresses, spiritually and physically, dispropotionately over large geographical areas. All your arguments will be meaningless if you visualize the spiritual condition of the mankine after, say, 10,000 years? If you people argue or not, it should progress to perfection.

Blaming without expecting any improvement is punishment - Defending ones own faith is essential to anyone's mental health, however wrong it is. Human nature is essentially evil till today, irrespective of their religions and it shows everywhere.

Acusers and acused are both providing his own contribution to the spiritual progress of mankind, of course in different ways.

So please dont keep hate while arguing for anything. Both will be smiling and hugging each other at the shores of death and beyond, may be even mocking at the lives left on the earth of their folly of arguing with hate.

Wish all the nicest things.
