    semantics aside, I think the intent and the spirit is clear. Hope this works for all.

    What category do posts calling Islam 'inherently violent and promoting violence' fall into?

    Its called attacking Islam similarly it should be avoided.

    But the thread is not discussing about Islam.

    I have a tangential view on this issue. I think a good forum should allow discussions of all kinds as long as the discussions remain civil.

    We often say that religion is a personal matter, but on the contrary, it is the belief of a person that is his personal matter, not some of the way of life that is supposed to be followed by everyone. When everyone gets involved in the same thing, it no longer remains personal.

    Religion has the most profound effect on the society. What we think is a personal matter, is actually the most impersonal matter if we look at it in a stretch of time. Religion is our understanding of the world and the single-most greatest threat to mankind is being in a wrong or incomplete (both are equally threatening) set of fundamental premises of life.

    All the issues in this world, be it political, military, or economical, or any issue of small or big magnitude has only one solution to begin with - and that is our correct understanding of the world.

    If we are intelligent and sane beings then we must not look like herd of sheep. We need to do some tough thinking to see to it that what we are following is leading us to the right path or not. This is the most basic need for successfully becoming a "man" and hence I strongly suggest and encourage discussions on religion, as long as it remains civil and does not includes personal attacks.

    If this is a secular forum than religion should not be allowed to be discussed. This is what secularism stands for isn't it?

    I wish these words get transformed into solid action without any biasedness towards nationality and seniority.

    Does this suggestion/request/warning is applicable to admin, mods,think tanks, researchers and military prof also??? There are certain people who fall under similar category from these elite fellas also which is really cheap for their status.

    Same category. I have also mentioned a few times to some Indian members that when they ridicule Islam, they do so at the cost of 160 million Indian Muslims

    I mean, there is no hiding from the fact that at this time, India and Paksitan are sworn enemies. So let it be India vs Pakistan, but not Hindu vs Muslim.

    Religious practices are obviously not discussed and we've forbidden it. Dua's, poojas, prayers - nothing is allowed here. When religion is discussed its discussed in a social/political context - that too with something to do with Pakistan.

    Secularism means we don't support or oppose any religion or base our policies upon any tenet of faith.

    We here on this forum usually avoid to degrade Hinduism or any other religion we dont believe in. We dont care and have NO concern if anyone is Hindu or otherwise Unless these Hindu members bring in Islam and insult our religion just like what happened yesterday. dead brain, and then that vinod decided to pour dirt from their mouths against Islam

    out of 99 cases 97 will be the ones wherein these are Indian members who start insulting Islam and we reply them in the same BUT still we do keep some level of civility.

    The bottom line is if we give you respect that does not mean you should cross your line and insult our religion in the name of freedom of expression.

    Stop playing victim card because we do NOT take you as hindus BUT as Indians unless you start a debate on religion.

    If somebody does so, show your eliteness, just report the post and ignore it. Why fall to their level?

    I do report most of the times. And that uncivilized person last night resorted to the lowest level of humanity by doing my character assassination i could have replied him in the same manner but i avoided to reply him at all.


    If you abuse my mother do you expect that i will observe refrain ???????
    we Muslims are taught that respect mothers of every one irrespective of religion and creed
