Muslim women sexually attacked, paraded naked in UP

By staff reporter

Shrawasti (UP): a simple case of elopement by two lovers belonging to two different religious communities turned into a heinous crime committed against members of Muslim community.

A Muslim boy and a Hindu girl eloped on 7th of July in Shrwasti district of Uttar Pradesh. An FIR was filed for the alleged kidnapping of the girl. Three days later hundreds from girl's village attacked Muslim dominated village of Sirsia that the boy belonged to. Brother
of a Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) minister is reported to be leading that mob.

The mob beat all Muslims, burnt a number of houses of that village. The most heinous is that several Muslim women were sexually assaulted and a few of them paraded naked.

Police deny any such incident have happened and in fact refuse to lodge an FIR. Medical examination of these women could be taken only after 48 hours severely limiting the hope of finding any evidence of rape after such a long time.

Reporters have seen marks of attack and assault on the bodies of women.

Legislators of Samajwadi Party (SP) walked out of the state assembly over this incident and involvement of a BSP minister. Waqar Shah of SP raised this issue in the Assembly and dubbed the Mayawati government of UP as "anti-Muslim."

Meanwhile BSP government has announced the suspension of police officers of Shrawasti districts. Lalji Verma, Minister for Parliamentary Affairs denied involved of any BSP minister in the incident. An inquiry has been ordered.


Muslim Women

This type of stories which has interfaith ramifications throughout India must be published only if it is proven beyond doubt by the papers own correspondents. A politician making a complaint in assembly must be verified before publishing.
QWe are a feudal society. rizwannur case is a classic example of our fedual mentalisty. Rich vs poor ( no rich parent will allow his rich daughter to be married to a poor boy whichever community,religion, caste or region in India)Same with relligion. No muslim parent will allow his daughter to be married to a Hindu boy. A poor Muslim girl or Hindu girl will be allowed to be married to a rich Hindu or muslim girl respectively but with prejudice in heart). But the other way it is no go. i am an indian christian and the trauma we faced when my sister married a hindu boy is still let us not generalise and blame and exasporate the feelings. let us be a unifying force.

Uneducated JaVED

Dear Javed
If you are really Javed and muslim then You should not forget Gujrat, just remind it for a while and you will came to know that How happy and safe muslims are in India. You are comparing the muslims of India with Pakistan, had you ever been to Pakistan, I know you had never, You had just seen Pakistan in your rubbish movies like Border, Mission Kashmir and Hindustan Ki Kasam. I pray for you that such inncents would never and ever happened to your sister and mother. Till then I will wait for your comments.

We Indian Muslims are better

We Indian Muslims are better in India. why dont you mention when 10,000 Mohajirs , MQM supporters were killed in Karachi by Naseerullah Babur.
You are not taking Bihari Muslim refugees who fought for you.
Your country will be soon disintegrated by America after killing Talibans, and then we and our Mohajir brothers will get together and rule sindh.

@ yet another shameful

@ yet another shameful example of India's famous Secularism,
and another perversive attribution of the greatest nonsensical
lolly-bollywoodian crap " Khuda ke liay's " aftermath.
Just how long Hindu extremist will continue giving themselves a " reason "
to comit these atrocities and genocide against muslims. They will be broght
before justice, Inshallah.

till now hindus were not

till now hindus were not doing genocide but now after jaipur they should and clean india from muslims. u got pakistan \ bdesh in 1947 so live there and let us live in india.
this was never u r land babar occupied it now time has come to clean it up.

we hindus and muslims will

we hindus and muslims will always fight together........
and others will always use us............for powerfull nations and greedy people ,we hindu-muslim denge are so profitable................good keep fighting aapas mein.........ladoo n maroo........

listen guys............

its really sad n pathetic .... to read the comments given by most of d people here...... guys lets not forget the great golden temple is situated on a land given by akbar....
we hindus n muslims allways fight with each other.... and nation like america takes advantage of us......... av v time hein bhaiyo ... open ur eyes n hug each other ......n spread peace in entire india request to all hindu n muslim brothers......learn sumthing from past ....... beoz of narenrda modi ..... whatr happened in gujrat.... we shud not forget that ....... simple fighting happens everywhere ... bt we shud make it a big issue like wat we saw in the railway station in godhra... aftr a small fighting between a muslim tea vendor and a hindu sangh worker........,the entire gujrat turned violent .... people raped their own neighbours with whom they celebrated eid,diwali together for several years.........

All poor suffer in riots but

All poor suffer in riots but minorites suffer much more everywhere. NO religion advocates violence. That is why we need true religion & true democracy- democracy is a farce in India, Pak & USA(or how was Bush elected in the first place)

Their is only one true

Their is only one true religion,and that is Aryanism=Hinduism.The inferieur muslims deserve 2 be slaughtered and raped,as they are chamaars and inferieur.They need to be converted if they want 2 live in our country.And Muslims are being converted to hinduism at incredible speed,as is should be.

Muslims are contaminated with semetic blood,which makes them just as low as the Jews.And if they start trouble,we will end it.Hindus are more succesfull,that's why muslim woman come 2 us.Even here in Europe we HINDUstanis slash the muslims(especially tha paki's and afghans),and convert their woman.Non violence is only 4 cowards.

We are Aryan ksatriyas(warrior race),and it is our duty to spread our religion as stated in the Bhagvat Gita.We are wiping every single muslim-infected being or thing from the face of the earth.We already discriminate,humiliate,convert or destroy muslims in our our own country(India) and encourage this,as we are people with money and power living in Europe.

Muslims are being destroyed all over the world.They are like "cancer"on the planet,and we need to heal the planet from this disease.The muslims are the ones who started it.

Mass slaughter of muslims in Iraq and Afganistan by Bush(America),destruction of muslims by the Jews in Israel,mass slaughter of muslims by Hindus (example:riots of Gujrat),Shia and sunni muslims killing each other,and/or blowing themselves up,Muslims becoming atheists because they see that their religion is fake and evil,muslims being converted to other religions because especially Cristianity and Hinduism,and muslims leaving Islam because of discrimination & destruction of muslims sinds 11 september,African muslims being killed in war....

Of course we Hindus rule our own country India,but it's not enough.We will convert every single muslim in Europe,especially the womans.

The world is becoming a better place to live in.Muslims have no right to breath,as they whorship the devil.

Aryan Hindus Rulsz
Aryavarth/Bharat/Hindustan zindabad!!

this is an article written by amuslim not ahindu

this is the cowardice used by afanatic muslim to defame the tolerant attitude of hindus. if i write a pro muslim article being a hindu and stating what the zealot muslim kings did to hindus in the past and hailing the deeds of osama bin laden, saddam hussain,etc.the impact is a muslim who read the article would soon recognise that it was written by a hindu and not a true muslim.because when we read it the impression is that the article creates a different opinion which is the writers actual intention. there are no such verses in gita which asks people to kill or convert other.this article is yet another hardcore muslim conspiracy.

The goverment is ours,the

The goverment is ours,the film industry is ours,the richest people in india are hindus .

Godwilling,we will continue succeeding.



What an UNeducated remark

Muslims had been in India long before Babar came - you are too ignorant. Actually Babar fought against a Muslim (Ibrahim Lodhi) to conquer India. I think you need to go back to an educational institution if you are so ignorant. Also why the Muslims are in India - you will get that answer also in good history books (not the school level ones). We are here on our own rights not out of sympathy of the Hindus - be careful before making such a foolish remark. The Politicians fuel these remarks to consolidate Hindu votes but the common man should not try to take it as the Holy Grail.

I am no Hindu and No

I am no Hindu and No Muslim.
We have seen muslims in "khuda kay liya" also and know how pathetic you pakistanis are . What happened in Gujrat was a shame for all of us but what happened in Godhara was also shame . Had there been no Godhara there had been no Gujrat. Having said that muslims are integral part of India that's why they had been at the top spots in every field of the India . I pray my muslim brothers rise above these petty issues and grow and make India stronger as in there strength lies India's strength . Jai Hind .

Why Godhra?

Though here the topic is not about Gujarat, but since you have mentioned about it that if there was no Godhra then there had been no Gujarat incident. Godhra incident didn't happen just like that - not that some Muslims thought that let us attack the Hindus. Muslims in India know it very well that it takes only a lame excuse for the Hindus to start a riot with the Muslims , so Muslims are careful about it since it is they who loose the most. don't give a biased view - of course you will do so since you are a Hindu. Godhra incident hapened (according to eyewitnesses who were Hindus too) when those Karsevaks were trying to tease a Muslim girl sitting in the platform. And that sparked the riot since the atmosphere was already tensed.
One should be able to understand the situation

shabnum a mental muslim ho allah help her

dear shabnum ji namasthe. first let me tell u story which people like u would easily believe in. do u know the second world war took place in europe and a great person like hitler who was resoponsible for the deaths of 60 million jews. dear shabnum ji acutaally hitler was an innocent man . jews in his country raped the german women that is why he had to kill 60 million jews. haha shabnum will believe my story because shabnum bluffs me that sixty innocent hindus were killed for teasing an innocent girl. shabnum is ignorant that among people killed most of them were women and young children. nearly fourty people out of sixty died. your concocted story is yet another pproof of muzlim hegemony over hindus.for just teasing nobody would kill women and children. at the most the teasers would be beaten up and jailed. what did they do they killed women anc child. the whole story of yours is more than false. it was a preplanned attempt of muslims to kill hindus. that siall . dont build cock and bull stories. u are already mental by being a muslim why do u want others to be mental with ur false stories. jai hind.

TASLEEM living in fools paradise

you r such a innocent and ignorant person i have ever seen. u say pakistan is safest country for women. PLEASE GROW UP AND SEE WHATS HAPPENING AROUND YOU. by just feeling safe is not a good country. just look at the economic state of pakistan, its no were a match with india. day by day the human rights in pakistan are deteorating. I accept there is communal tension in india. its a common thing every where in world. where there is a minority definetely u will find communal tension, there is no escape from it. but at least economic wise we are getting better education, job oppurtunity, salary, and good standard of living in india compared to pakistan

Muslims in India

its funny when people say muslims are deprived of good life in India. Muslims had ruled india for 1000 years and then divided the country to form their own country, who ever stayed in India have been pampered like any thing by the ruling parties. except BJP all parties in india always try to make them happy. Muslims have become presidents, central ministers, state chief ministers , judges, and sport team captains. the film industry is ruled by muslims, Indian cricket team had a muslim captain and always had atleast couple of muslims in it. muslims have their own sharia law and the govts even changed the constitution(sha bano case) to appease muslims. AR anthulay a muslim was made chairman of famous siddi vinayak temple in mumbai. muslim artisits and muslim scientists are honored in india. Some states now started giving reservations to them also. most of the states in india have minority educational instituations which are for minorities. can any pakis and banglas tell me one thing from the above which applies to minorities in ur countries. Just show me one country in the world which gives huz subsidy to muslims.. Muslims are pampered like any thing in india.It is only because of their own inability to use and make best of opportunities around them they are lagging behind. when a poor muslimn like abdul kalam can become a famous scientist and then president, why can not other muslims progress in their lives? Instead of listening to mullas and their stupid leaders,if they focus on getting good education for their kids atleast their coming generations will progress ..



Naked in UP


I appreciate the reply from MAK On January 14th, 2008

I hate all the guys who speek of CASTE, CREED, COMMUNITY etc. These are the mantras of EVIL, SELF centered and people who do not know science and do not use their own brain

Basically we all are human. Every one of us have same structure. People with brain and own thoughts do not believe in these mantras.

Why have images

I dont know what you are getting at but if I have my predictions right you like looking at women being abused and I dont think it is really appropriate for a public website to be viewing this. Having a visual demontration of women being paraded around naked will only make us hate the Muslim faith of abusing and killing women even more. I am guessing you were abused when you were young so your way of taking back control is to watch other women being attacked to feel that sexual empowerment.
Oh and also write better ENGLISH, if your generalising your need to see images accompanying any topic fair enough but you haven't been exaCT in your request so I can only assume you want to see naked women.

We all know, that now

We all know, that now extremists & radical HINDUS are in control of India.... Today, Govt of India is publically Lying, as India is now a Hindu-Country... There are approx 400 Million MUSLIMS in India(i.e approx 40% in India are MUSLIMS), & less than 1% of MUSLIMS get any professional jobs in any private corporation/business... Also, less than 1% of MUSLIMS get any Govt powerful Jobs in any State or Central-govt in India.......The HINDU Controlled Media in India has very CUNNINGLY Suppressed all these FACTS....In Bollywood, its even Worse, as MUSLIMS are being Brainwashed to worship Statues in Hindu temples....same as being done by Indian govt in villages....

Also, the Hindu Controlled MEDIA in India is extremely CUNNINGLY suppressing all the Killings/Rapes of MUSLIMS in India....The Hindu controlled Judges in India are NOT giving any Justice to MUSLIMS...

We DEMAND JUSTICE for 400 Million MUSLIMS in India
Engr-Arshad Ali Khan, UMMAA-Broadcasting, Rolla, Missouri, USA

Justify your facts.

My dear fella,
You claim to live in the US and yet state all this as if you saw it with your own eyes!!! I pity you for your ignorance. I do not claim that there is no discrimination in India. Discrimination exists as is true in most places in the world, even the US. Let us try to not overexagerate and incite innocent minds in India while we live in a totally different country. Use your brains before you post your comments and do justify whatever you claim to be facts.


Here is an extract from the speech made by Obama a couple of days ago. Just replace Blacks with muslims and see how well it fits the situation in india. This just goes to show that discrimination is the so starkly same, irrespective of where its carried out. To get more details see the now publicly available Sachar committe report to see the gruesome details.

"Understanding this reality requires a reminder of how we arrived at this point. As William Faulkner once wrote, "The past isn't dead and buried. In fact, it isn't even past." We do not need to recite here the history of racial injustice in this country. But we do need to remind ourselves that so many of the disparities that exist in the African-American community today can be directly traced to inequalities passed on from an earlier generation that suffered under the brutal legacy of slavery and Jim Crow.

Segregated schools were, and are, inferior schools; we still haven't fixed them, fifty years after Brown v. Board of Education, and the inferior education they provided, then and now, helps explain the pervasive achievement gap between today's black and white students.

Legalized discrimination - where blacks were prevented, often through violence, from owning property, or loans were not granted to African-American business owners, or black homeowners could not access FHA mortgages, or blacks were excluded from unions, or the police force, or fire departments - meant that black families could not amass any meaningful wealth to bequeath to future generations. That history helps explain the wealth and income gap between black and white, and the concentrated pockets of poverty that persists in so many of today's urban and rural communities.

A lack of economic opportunity among black men, and the shame and frustration that came from not being able to provide for one's family, contributed to the erosion of black families - a problem that welfare policies for many years may have worsened. And the lack of basic services in so many urban black neighborhoods - parks for kids to play in, police walking the beat, regular garbage pick-up and building code enforcement - all helped create a cycle of violence, blight and neglect that continue to haunt us.

This is the reality in which Reverend Wright and other African-Americans of his generation grew up. They came of age in the late fifties and early sixties, a time when segregation was still the law of the land and opportunity was systematically constricted. What's remarkable is not how many failed in the face of discrimination, but rather how many men and women overcame the odds; how many were able to make a way out of no way for those like me who would come after them.

But for all those who scratched and clawed their way to get a piece of the American Dream, there were many who didn't make it - those who were ultimately defeated, in one way or another, by discrimination. That legacy of defeat was passed on to future generations - those young men and increasingly young women who we see standing on street corners or languishing in our prisons, without hope or prospects for the future. Even for those blacks who did make it, questions of race, and racism, continue to define their worldview in fundamental ways. For the men and women of Reverend Wright's generation, the memories of humiliation and doubt and fear have not gone away; nor has the anger and the bitterness of those years. That anger may not get expressed in public, in front of white co-workers or white friends. But it does find voice in the barbershop or around the kitchen table. At times, that anger is exploited by politicians, to gin up votes along racial lines, or to make up for a politician's own failings."

uneducated reached USA ?

No one boast as he is an Engineer, but this uneducated Engr-Arshad Ali Khan.

i think he is with fake certificate from Hydrabad.

he is not aware that in india muslim population is only 13%.

Please someone educate him

reply to arshad khan

mr. arshad khan can u tell us how many hindu people are in pakistan work as a top management, but i can tell u our one of the great president is muslim. please think twice before u speak.

Don't you know it Anonymous?

Dear Anonymous, It seems you know nothing about India. Do you know that India is a secular democratic republic? I hope you do. SO that is the reason that 0.0000001% of Indian Muslims hold management posts in India. Don't make yourself an article of ridicule by writing such foolish things. And Pakistan is an Islamic state. And I hope you will not ask why India has not been declared a Hindu state? Take the help of history books (not the school level ones). Moreover Hinduism is the name of a culture and not a religion. There was only one religion before Islam came to this country - it was Vedic religion that too got mixed up with the idol worshipping done by the ancient people of this land. They practised idol worshipping because they did not get the enlightment of any true religion. The idol worshipping was practised to appease the unknown forces.

Re:Uneducated reached USA

Do you also have fake degree from Banares Hindu University. May be made by RSS sevaks. How you know muslims are 13% in India???????????????

To Engr-Arshad Ali Khan

To Engr-Arshad Ali Khan :
Can you tell me how many of Muslims are educated in India ? You will get the answer why they are least employed

please try to know the figures before blaming any one.

Tracing the employment pattern of Muslims, the records say that just three percent of IAS officers, four percent of IPS officers and meager 1.8 percent of Indian Foreign Service (IFS) officers are from the community. It goes on to say that just 2.2 percent of all bank employees, including of the Reserve Bank of India (RBI), are Muslims. Drawing a comparison with Hindus, the records say that while 63.6 percent of Muslims live in non-permanent houses, 55.2 percent Hindus live in similar conditions. 'Thirty percent of Muslims have access to electricity while 43.2 percent of Hindus have access to electricity. (Similarly) 19.4 percent of Muslims have access to piped water against 25.3 percent Hindus,' the records say. The literacy rate of India is at 65 percent, for Muslims it is 59 percent. It is not as low compared to the employment & basic amenities. This kind of minority appeasement as claimed by the sanghis.

i agree

can u have any solution for us people in india(Muslims)

please mail me
i want some serious discussion on it

THis incident has been

THis incident has been misinterpreted i suppose...If really this has happened den its really unfortunate...Such an incident rarely take place...
If it goes on like this than the minorities will come into troublee.....And secondly these agression sudnt be done and what the hell is police and the goverment doing...They r gud for nothing i suppose.......

And dis mayawati is a bull shit and need to be removed......


Hindu mob led by Anti-hindu dalit party!!

Why no human right activists ever demanded justice for this as they are crying their hearts out for afzal guru the accused in parliament bombing?

Why it can't be hindu-fascists BJP's propaganda for tarnishing BSP?

I strongly condemn this incident & perpetrators.Whoever is behind this sinister act must be hanged in public.




In reply to your comments on repression of majority on minority population, I like to say some thing about my experience in Bangladesh. I am a minority in Bangladesh. All my anchetors used to live there and my family still living under the repression of muslims.
Severeal time in last 14 yeras I experienced severe assult on minorities(Hindus and Buddists) from pilitical terrorista and administrations(police and court).My family is still fighting to save lands from a muslim terrorist ,who attempted to grab the land with false document. Lot of hindu family is still being treated as enemy of state even though they and their anchestors worked as state servent.
During those incidents lots of minorities were killed for no reasons, girls, wives raped in front of family members.No justice were done in favor of the victims.Even the Ahamodia communities being tortured and killed by majority people in Bangladesh.

So what I like to mention , minorities are always the target of discrimination everywhere in the world, whether muslims or hind or shik.

You will not find any answer of this .As a hindu I am also bearing the same prolonged pain as you are bearing as muslim.


Friends, on the my point of view in INDIA all community are safe. If any coencident are happens than don't think like that this is a specially for hindu or muslim. No one compare it with minorities in pakistan or bangladesh Because here RAMJAN me RAM hae to DIWALI me ALI hae. "Ham Sath Sath Hae" i offer my friendrhip to all minorities


can u tell me what is solution for us . i mean indian muslims

religion is a way of life to

religion is a way of life to give life not to take anyones life,if a maniac get power he do destruction what ever his religion may be (osama,sadaam,bush,hitler,narendar modi,muguls in india like tamurlang and aurangzeb,bristish in india as at jalianwala bagh,indian hindus during 1984 with sikh,and 1992 and 2001 with muslims.)

see the other side of the coin, if anyone want to spread love the earth become heaven,(muhammed the prophet,gandhi the great soul,saints like kabir,sai baba,guru
nanak,budha,naam dev,gadgay maharaj,tukaram,chisty of ajmer,makhdum shah)

todays generation speak about religon as they had readed all religious text but question urself how many times we pray in a day,but when to fight with our indian brothers we r always ready.

what ever our history may be,but we have to make our future bright,who ever rule india we should think for all,any wrong deeds done by any person sholud be consider as individual not as his religion he blong to,be human frist to accpet ur presecne on earth then a indian to accept ur prsence in india then follow ur religion without intetionally disturbing others.

the solution for indian muslims are to be educated and palce them self in indian government services(specially police and politics),then work for upliftment of the society and country.

It is a shame on us

I feel very sorry.
I don't have words to condemn the incident.
The culprits, whoever it may be, should punished.
It is a shame on Indian culture.

need not feel ashamed

control ur tongue mr raghavan indian culture has nothing to do with this incident, are u responsible if ur father does some thing wrong, definitelynot, in the same way indian culture has nothing to do with it, first start respecting the hindu point ofview which say muslims either of indian origin or foreign should never be believed because islam is poison of the world and keeeps troubling us


Did u mean that Hinduism teaches u that islam is poison.\
I have read some books but does not fund Hinduism saying this.
to live here in this world
if u do not accept Islam it is oK with us . But u mean that we will do such an act against us.
Then be a man and say it clearly so that people like u can be cleared from society by our indian law .Or by law of God

don't pretend as if u r the speaker for each religion

u r a big rog do ur own buisness, why u want to giv someone a comment do take care of ur mother or sisters, don;t try to pretend ha su are the only citizen of indian who is doing justice, equally count every human has a human not segregatting has religion, religion is secondary thing , first of all we are human respect the life of a human, so being an hindu what u r doing for socitry and to ur own people, nothing u r a just a dirty rog to comment on others, so try to sort out our own religin , so sc or st doesn't come under hinduism, so repect the dalit women/men help them try to feed them a meal from ur own hand and eat along with them, can u do? then start talking about diffrent religion.

if indian culture has

if indian culture has nothing to do with it like you said then what has the muslim religion got to do with it, islam is not whtas poison it peoples minds like your self that thinks that, if islam is poison then why did a hindu girl knowing what her actions result in do such thing, MAKE SURE YOUR BRAIN IS IN GEAR BEFORE ENGAGING MOUTH!!!!!

islam is poison my mind is in gear

the fundementals of quran are prepared in such a way that it keeps fighting with other faith. take the the advent of islam in india. in the name of islam crores of hindus were killed. even today there is no peace muslims themselves are killing each other. still how many proofs u want . the prophet mohammmed was an illiterate no doubt he was enlightendd. but the process of enlightenment is huge jorney. mohammed was just in a primary stage of his spiritual joruney. at that stage he uttered certain false statements which are responsible for todays bloodshed. without spiritual training under aguru no one should comment on the concept of god whether he is formeless or with formm. that is the reason why islam has become arrogant towards other religions.

Mister, Whoever u r , Little

Mister, Whoever u r , Little knowledge is dangerous. U 've no right to comment on sensitive issues like religion. U hardy know anything about Islam and Prophet Muhammad ( Peace be upo him).

o big man with no brain im fully aware of my knowledge on islam.

helo mr anonymous iam commenting with full knowledge only.tell the same thing also to mr zakir naik the islamic scholar who is also insulting other religions in the name of debates.u question ur own big mind whether relgion is just a personal matter or not.if so we can co-exist together with different opinions. exactly mohamedan philosphy lacks this so today we see in iraq muslims killing muslims with car bombs.pakistani sunnis sacriliging the masjids by gunning down fellow shia muslimsin the masjids itself.if islam is noble why dont all the arab countries unite against america which is sitting on iraq like a lion on the elephant blasting its brains till it, u cannot do that u are helpless now. u are caught now for the centuries of misdeeds in the name of the most only two twin towers of u.s were destroyed which irked the sleeping giant to wake up.u see today two islamic countries iraq,afghanistan are under u.s. control, most oil producing arab nations are the stooges of the u.s.

Zakir Naik and Hindutva Hindus

Zakir Naik has never expressed any hatred of Hindus. He does not incite Muslims against Hindus.

The Quran says that scriptures were sent to people of all lands. When asked whether the Vedas could be regarded as scriptures, Naik said they were; but he felt many additions and interploations had been made to them.

Zakir Naik has only explained his religion, and if he has found some favourable points in your scriptures, why should he become a hate figure for you ?

He has never insulted Hindus, all he says is 'this is my religion'. Yet, you see it is an insult - it is proof of your sense of inferiority.

The bottom line is Islam is growing even today, even in the west. There is no conquest. So the conclusion must be that it has an inherent strength. Of course, that will cause anguish to you

Actually, I am not that much of a fan of Dr. Zakir Naik. His speaking style is too hectoring for me. But I do not dismiss him, as I think he has something unique which is a knowledge of all the scriptures in the world. Due to this, he can engage in live debates with leaders of other religions. I have not seen this from people of other faiths.

Naik's writing is better than his speaking. I saw a very good comparison written by him on the views of all the various religions versus the atheists. He seemed to have respect for people who have some religion as opposed to none.

I think there are finer scholars than him who speak on Islam. The best I have heard is the African American Bilal Philips. The best scholars of Islam are actually non-Arab. I believe India has produced the best Islamic scholars. We have our own Maulana Azad ,Maulana Maududi and Allama Iqbal. Actually, all the religions are present in the Indian milieu, so it gives a wide perspective.

Personally, I am more interested in discussing politics than religion. I do agree that religious leaders should keep their skills in their territory, especially in a multi religous country.

But that is not what we see in India. If the religious leaders make some outlandish comment, they will be ignored. But when politicians join them, then that leads to uncontrollable situations. The prime example is when Advani joined hands with VHP fellows and used religious emotions to build a political platform for himself.

The problem of religious leaders trying to guide the political leaders is not new. Emperor Akbar founded some of the orthodox ulema (Islamic scholars) led by Sheikh Sirhindi troublesome. They interfered constantly and made it difficult to rule.

He told them that he would consult them but he warned them if they came with competing views, he would ignore them. But as usual, each man of religion competed with the other, so he ignored them.

Then they started denouncing him as an unbeliever. So he got fed up and decided to deport 30 of the most troublesome mullahs to Afghanistan. That is why Akbar was a strong leader.

zakirnaik indeed a modern islamic mouth terrorist.

the article written by you show how ignorant you are in the matters of religion and spirituality and im feeling neither inferior nor anguished as you blindly opined.zamir has the right as far as discussing his religion is concerned.But in the name of comparitive religion he touches those points that implicitly try to prove that islam is the best scientifice religion than other religions. if mohamed gives his ideas on god and the world that is his opinion about spirituality. It doesnt mean that spiritual heritage must stop with him once for all.islam would soon vanish as quickly as it is spreading today for one just reason that it is not tolerant which has universal there is a science text book there are hundreds of scientists giving their opinion on various aspects of truth.see how foolish principle is this that the whole world must bow to quran and mohamed and allah which is nothing but absolute dictatorship in religious affairs.since u are so much bothered about hindutva hindus who according to you are villains. i would like to ask you a few questions,why is bangladesh an islamic state when there are nearly twenty percent of hindus are there.2. why did talibhans destroy bamiyan buddhas when islam preaches peace,3.why did bufoon babur destroy ayodhya ram temple when islam preaches harmony.4.why are our indian immigrants suffering in saudi arabia in the hands of sheiks when indian so much place for 15 crore muslims.5.why dont u listen carefully zakir naik lectures or his websites that clearly denigrade hinduism.6.there is no such inherent as you speak of ur religion as long as u discard the monotheistic principle of one god and quran as the last book.i,being a hindu shall respect islam because i am a nondual reach god paths are many where it monotheistic,form or no form worship,person worship,polytheistic,henotheistic, all must have a place in religion. religion is only a method.there are people who need not be either hindu or muslim to attain spirituality which is inherent in us.for furthur informataion study vivekananda's books on hinduism.then shall u understand how to bring harmony while comparing two great religions.jai sreeram, jai allah, jai jesus, jai buddha,. please dont take my comments seriously as these have come out of fury. let peace be every where.
