Re: The enemity between India and Pakistan and the Muslims is religion based.
Dear Dr A K Isaacs
"Why, the Quran employs abusive language against "non-Muslims" and goes to the extent of calling them "filthy, unclean and in the case of the Jews and Christians it labels them apes and pigs.""
As suggested by Fr Ronnie Prabhu, I will request you to quote SURA from the Quran.
Your writing suggest that you have read articles in magazines or newspapers or in some books which have been written by people. Who just quote because it suites them.
Do you know people are so lazy in reading that they start quoting anyone. Yesterday a friend of mine exactly quoted what you have mentioned here in the forum. And he though I have not read this article. I asked him to give me the page and sura and then in the process of discussion he told me that he read it in Jharkhand eforum.
If you read Quran you will come to know the opposite. Jews and Christian have given due space. It is hard to believe that you are such, I am sorry to say, an ignorant scholar. Jesus and Moses have been mentioned in the Quran and they are mentioned as one of the prophets. I will read and email details.
"…This is because the Quran preaches sectarianism of the crudest kind : that while "infidels" are the vilest creatures in the eyes of the extra-cosmic god (Allah) who creates out of nothing and that only Islam is acceptable to this extra-cosmic god which is why humilating conditions like Jizziya, subjugation of other faiths and persecution of non-Muslims are prescribed by this medieval Book,…"
My dear Issacs,
You seem to be preaching like Talibans, created by US, to preach ignorance among illiterate masses so that they can exploite then in the name of Allah. I will request you to not to behave like Christian Taliban and read and write what is truth. You are mixing political discourse into religious preaching. I will again suggest you to read Qoran and not articles by people who know it by reading articles.
Do you think Christianity preaches hatred? I don't think so.
But you read history you will see 30 years war which engulfed whole Europe.
The Thirty Years' War (1618–1648) was a religious war principally fought in Germany. The conflict began between Protestants and Catholics in the Holy Roman Empire, but gradually developed into a general, political war involving most of the European powers.The Thirty Years' War was a continuation of the Bourbon-Habsburg rivalry for European political pre-eminence, and in turn led to further warfare between France and the Habsburg powers. There were extensive destruction of entire regions, denuded by the foraging armies. Episodes of famine and disease significantly decreased the populace of the German states and the Low Countries and Italy, while bankrupting most of the combatant powers.
DO YOU THINK IT WAS A RELIGIOUS WAR IN REAL SENSE?
And what about the crusades in Europe?
Do you thing Israel is fighting religious war? It was Israel and US who created Hammas to counter PLO. And looking who is supporting today's Israeli crusade in the UN. It US only.
There are a lot of things to write but here I would suggest Dr. Issacs to first read at least. You are victim of British-US propaganda.
Read about any violent insurgency in the present word and you will see all are based in wrong teachings by US-UK propaganda machine.
I am not only talking about Hammas or Taliban but about violence in
Uganda, Kenya, Zimbabwe to quote a few. And who created Saddam to check Iran?
The best way to fight violence of any kind is to first read proper text in proper context and then share the same with august members of eforums. Half knowledge is always dangerous and you can see it in the form of Talibans and other similar groups.
If you are deliberately writing such article then your excatly doing what US-UK has done with Taliban, and insurgents in countries like Iraq, Uganda, Kenya, and Zimbabwe etc.
And if you are not doing it delibrately, which I believe so, then you should read propoerly before writing and quoting any things.
Let us build this society on truth and not on propagandas.
I am open for any comment and suggestions.
Thanks and regards,
