Superb Supplement

The Ramadan supplement of Islamic Voice dealt with the various aspects of Ramadan brilliantly and rationally. I acquired precious knowledge on things I did not know. May the Almighty bless the team there who have been striving to spread the message of Allah across the world through the Net.

It's One God We Worship

I was deeply touched after the visit to your website and I inculcated a better understanding of the Islamic faith. After reading the Quran, I have started believing that it is a single God that both Hindus and Muslims worship. I feel the tension between the two sides is due to lack of understanding of each other's faith and this means that both the communities should make an attempt to understand each other's beliefs and value systems. Your site is doing a good job by educating people about Islam and spreading the message of communal harmony. I would appreciate if the site also includes information about Hinduism so that more Muslims would learn about the true principles of this religion.

Remarkable Judgement

I would like to place on record a remarkable judgement of the Bombay High Court recently. The Honourable Court has directed the government of Maharashtra to pay Rs 3 lakh in compensation to Nasreen Bano, widow of Khalil Razak Shaikh of Thane. Shaikh had been fatally injured while helping a police cop in apprehending criminals on the outskirts of Mumbai on November 7, 2000. He and the cop Prabhakar Mahajan laid down their life in the chase to hunt for the criminals. Shaikh being a common citizen, the government of Maharashtra had initially denied paying him the compensation. The Court reprimanded the State for wriggling out of the responsibility of paying maintenance to a common citizen and said this will only demoralise the citizenry.

I am compiling a book in Telugu language tilted Indian Freedom Struggle-Muslims Heroes which will comprise the life sketches of those martyrs who sacrificed their lives in the struggle against the Britishers for the freedom of India. I request readers to send me any information or literature they may have pertaining to this issue. The issue is slated for release in January 2002 and it will be worthwhile to bring to the public attention the efforts of the Muslims towards the Indian freedom struggle.

More Contests and Colour Please

Islamic Voice has been doing a great job in the field of community development. But our community needs to be informed about the various Islamic media that is available across the world. The Saudi channel comes as a boon to Muslims in India as they can get to see the live telecast of the prayers from Makkah and Madinah. Islamic Voice has indeed come a long way, but yet you can make it more popular by brightening up the children's page with more contests and prizes and more stories on the Prophet's companions.

Non-Muslims in Islamic Nations

Muslims across the world including Indian Muslims view themselves as being victimised by the West. Has anyone been victimized by Muslims? In the Muslim dominated regions be it Pakistan, Bangladesh or Kashmir, extensive non-Muslim ethnic cleansing has been going on. Islamic Pakistan treats its non-Muslims as second class citizens.

Islam Can Solve Our Problems

My whole attitude towards Islam has changed after browsing intensely through your website. It is really sad that today the name of Islam is being tarnished due to violence generated by a few. It was a highly uninformed pseudo-intellectual who recently stated that "Islam is the worst problem of the third world countries." In fact I can go as far as saying that Islam has the power to solve all our problems if followed properly. Being a fundamentalist Hindu, I would like to bring to your notice some similarities between Hinduism and Islam like meditation which is really central to Hindu philosophy. Also vedanta boldly says that God is one. I request the followers of Islam to visit the following sites- www.indiadivine.com, www.vedanta.org and www.sudarshana.org, so that they can appreciate the common features of the philosophies of the great religions of the world.
