            Hey, whatever your name is I don’t know why are you insulting others religion. Seriously dude you really need to get yourself checked up because you might be suffering from a disease called uneducated disease and your cure is to educate yourself and do you know how to educated yourself? Let me give you an idea. Take a book and read or go for classes only for dummies like you… Lolxx… You seriously need to get a life.. I assume that you must be jobless and finding something to do like all Indian does… I got a cure for you… GET A JOB….. You think that your hell great (which you’re not) and maybe you are trying to prove something to us and it must be either these three stuff. a)You’re lifeless b)Pathetic c)you’re a loser and jobless.. People like you are never gonna reach anywhere. I respect every religion and people like you are the one that is causing hatred to every religion. You want to speak about religion? Fine. I will tell you that what your religion teaches you. Your religion teaches you to steal stuff, murder people and rape young girls. That’s why India comes in the top 10 of the most rape cases. Actually your religion is not the cause of this but you people make us think that this is what your religion is teaching you… I don’t have anything to do with this conversation but I hate people who doesn’t have respect for other religion. Don’t you think that by insulting other religion, you’re actually gonna go to hell. Leave a peaceful life and educate yourself. Life is not permanent. One day everyone will have to go back from where they came from. If one day you passed away and god will question you that what good deeds have you done when you when alive. And what are you gonna answer? Look at yourself first before assuming other. Peace

By the way whats wrong talk about conversions, it happens right ?, until unless its not forced, let it happen. Not just about Islam. I have published other articles conversations happend in Hindu religion. See its not about any specific religion conversion , its about celebrities. Hope you got that point ? . Yes what ever they do

      Asking about religion not Nationality’


    1. Say (O Muhammad () to these Mushrikun and Kafirun): “O Al-Kafirun (disbelievers in Allah, in His Oneness, in His Angels, in His Books, in His Messengers, in the Day of Resurrection, and in Al-Qadar, etc.)!

    2. “I worship not that which you worship,

    3. “Nor will you worship that which I worship.

    4. “And I shall not worship that which you are worshipping.

    5. “Nor will you worship that which I worship.

    6. “To you be your religion, and to me my religion (Islamic Monotheism).”

    Mr. Aswajith we have to understan the meaning of that verse which you quoted from Quran the complete surah that is what i mentioned above

    first we have to tell what is truth them if anyone dont accept then

    “To you your religion and to me mine”

    Who said you Islam is terror religion?
    Islam is a peaceful religion.
    Media make Islam as a terror religion but in fact Islam is lovely and peace full religion.
    Muslim who hates human in the name of religion’s is not a true Muslim mention in Quran.
    Allah the Almighty god is one and only one god who is ruling the whole nature.
    Islam respect others,love others,respect women’s and respect elders.
    Who killed lakhs of people in Hiroshima and Nagasaki by bombarding ?
    Who killed mahatma Gandhi?
    Who killed rajiv Gandhi and Indra Gandhi?
    Islam is mention in every sacred book in Mahabharata,Bible and Judaisms.
    USA government make the fake Muslim terror videos to ruin Islam.
    Jesus is Muslim it is clear mentioned in Bible,but many knows the fact but they denied.
    May Allah hidaya all the world.

    Recently on Thursday blood some Hindu RSS leaders brutally beaten the Muslim family in train why?
    Because they are Muslim?
    Is this Hinduism teach?
    Modi is encouraging RSS and Banrangidal to harash Muslims and Dalits in India.
    What a great Indian prime minister?
    If many Hindus kills Muslim in front of media they are not terrorist?
    Recently after formation of BJP Government, many RSS leaders killed Muslims and Dalits,but no one raised their voiced against them,because they are Hindus.
    Great hindians
