    For so long we have tolarated these monkies and tried to teach them some manners and etiquette of the society but they are good as slaves only new found freedom does not suit their slaves mentality, The time has come for Muslims to show their real selves Masters to this low cl Indian dogs.

      As per Quran, in those days, those who did not accept God is One were called Kafir means unbeliever of The One God. Non muslims are generally non muslims. It is not necessary to call Kafir. As per Quran and Islamic teachings of prophet Mohammed, muslims and non muslims were living in harmony. Islam is not forcing anyone to convert. It is individual's own choice. We need understanding each other's point of views to live in harmony, Please...dont get offended.

          Sorry dear, you seems to have false information and wrong impression in your mind. I don't want to argue and make bitterness. I just pray for you to have harmony with me. Take care. God bless.
