Tolerance is key to competitive coexistence in a global village. I am surprised our politicians do not understand the difference between being Muslims and being intolerant anti-Christian and anti-Buddist. For God’s Sake, will someone open our eyes to the fact that all religions and people need to coexist. I am not saying that we should import Christianity or Buddism into this country. I am simply saying that we ought to show some respect; we have so many Christians and Buddists in our midst and working to build this nation. They don’t hate Islam – atleast as far as we can see; why should we hate their faith. Let’s just keep ours and inculcate and educate our young in the good of Islam.
When a bomb goes off in a place crowded with tourist we call “foul” and blame the extremists, but are we not fanning extremism in this country right now; and that too by leading politicians. How much better are we than the so called “terrorists”.
