Re: Is Islam A Peaceful Religion?
It make me sad.. As a Punjabi Novelist I am trying to highlight the commonlity between the people of the two Punjabs, who also both happen to have separete religions...but when I see hateful post either from Sikh, Hindu origin or Muslim...it makes me think that people like me are a miniority.. yesterday on you tube I was looking at Sikh songs, and allegedly, there is a post by a Montreal Muslim and a Lahori one, both citing haterd towards Sikhs..this so contradicts the muslims I was trying to reach out to in Pakistan or from, and so slaps me in the face when I try to convince Sikhs athet we are all Punjabis...
Maybe people like me and those on Apnaorg forum are a minmirity and th emajority just hate. That image I put up is not just about Indians, it is about those who became Pakistanni..but if the chasm is still this bad ( maybe Summy is right, its just us in the west) is it worth considering Punjabis as with same culture? It seems religion takes over everythinh and permeates in a hateful way. Yes, in one way the fashion of picking on Islam is due to the impression given by those who say Islam is peace yet do not publically critise atrocities..I am not anti muslim...but haterd has to stop...If people really belieive ibn God they must surely realise that God decided at bitrth which religion and culture to allocate us in? Surely testimonal and converting religiousnous is thus anti God ( goes aghainst this god decision) and we must just accept every one for what they are?
Maybe it is this desire to convert people that has brought a backlash ( not withsatnding Iraq)? Again re my artcle Jamil, I am not anti Muslim...but it is based on what the Youth in the west is stating ( not surprising really as they are being picked on for being muslim)...I have decided when it comes to religion or race I have no views other than... if man can not see god in other men..he can not see God at all
