Re: The enemity between India and Pakistan and the Muslims is religion based

I haven't reads Dr Fernandez's views, but the sentience of this author cannot be ignored. However I would also like to know why the Crusades took place, and why such attritional wars took place between Islamists and Christians in the medieval ages? Also my query is why were these dubbed as ' Holy Wars'. Can wars, human genocide be ' Holy'? This was inimical to the very fundaments of the Bible, and to the pacific teachings of Christ, who mind you was not however averse to calling a spade a spade.

Dear Dr Isaacs
What you say about Muslim scriptures can be said about all other scriptures. All have such bad and good sayings. The question is whether all their followers adhere to them. The fanatics do but they would not need any scriptures for that. They would invent them to justify their position if some references did not exist. But it is important not to attribute to the whole what a small group does or to judge a religious community by its scriptures that were written in a certian context.
