    Hi ms Deepa,
    Dont ask me how I got here. I dont know myself. I am from India. I dont know if u r 2! i guess there is a good chance. i want 2 say that i disagree with u on your premise (i suppose) that waeker ppl or ppl who have suffered through something have a higher moral authority on the issue than ppl who haven’t. in short weak=good=correct.
    i dont think that is the way to look at it. i think the way to look at the issue regarding islam as essentially being abt a religion unwilling to compromise on even basic issues and unwilling to integrate into the culture.
    as such i believe that the best form of Offence is ridicule. we shud make the environment acidic to these ppl so as they know that their ideology is not welcomed here. otherwise the poor pll who even follow these islamic leaders will think that their views are acceptable.
    these ppl dont act badly because they are a minority. when they become the majority or even a dominant force, they show their true colours.
    and u shud know better.
    bye.

      Hi,

      You say that Islam is a “islam as essentially being abt a religion unwilling to compromise on even basic issues and unwilling to integrate into the culture” What evidence do you have for this?

      In fact, if you read about the birth and spread of Islam from the 7th century on it shows exactly how adaptable the religion is. Islam takes a certain form in Iran that is different from Saudi Arabia, that is different from Indonesia, that is different from North India etc. etc. This adaptability is exactly what makes this one of the world’s major religions.

      So, please do suggest historical accounts that might support your thesis. Do you study this subject?
