Converting to Hinduism
Source: - womenintheworld.com Maysoon Al-Suwaidan is known for being a poet, a TV personality and the daughter of Tareq Al-Suwaidan, a prominent Muslim Brotherhood member in Kuwait who has written many books, delivered numerous public speeches and appeared in TV interviews on Islamic subjects ranging from discussing the Quran to stories of the Prophet Mohammed. Like many daughters of Islamic scholars, Al-Suwaidan always embraced the headscarf. She traveled the world with it, she obtained her masters degree from Georgetown University with it, and she conducted her poetry TV show while wearing it.  But late last year she posted a photo of herself on her Facebook page without the hijab, commenting that “I left to India in search of God away from any religion or sect and discovered that the

My native place is Perla, a place in Kasargode district, Kerala. I belong to the Havyaka Brahmin community. Please don’t ask me more details about Havyaka, I did not try to find the root of this community. Anyway, I have heard that, it is a very important section in the Brahmin community. Because of that, we have got and enjoyed good respect from the society. Like Sahana told here earlier, rather than as a Hindu, I lived as a Brahmin, Brahmin girl. From my childhood, I had seen many kinds of rituals conducting in my home. I started to say words like Isvara or God, only after came here.

Arguments Muslim Daa’wa teams make to convert you to Islam; counter their arguments using this paper

Muslims routinely scare people of other faiths by saying that if they do not embrace Islam, Allah will burn them in hell. There are 7.4 billion people on Earth -- 2 billion Christians, 1.5 billion are Muslims, and the rest of 3.9 billion people on Earth are Hindus, Buddhists, Atheists, Agnostics, Shintos, Confucians, others. Can you ever imagine a loving and merciful God who would burn more than nearly 6 billion people of humanity in hell for not following the Muslim faith? This means that Rama, Buddha, Guru Nanak, Swami Vivekananda, Mahatma Gandhi, and even modern Gurus such as Amma of Kerala, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar and Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev would find their place in hell. Can you imagine that a Maulvi at a local masjid, being a devout Muslim, would find his way in heaven, but no...

Two most common questions Muslims use to attack Hindus

Miscellaneous
Qs: How can there be so many gods? There can be only one creator of the Universe!   Hindus believe that all of creation is ONE with the Creator. All that you see around you is made up of the same energy or consciousness as that of the Creator. It is a form of ONE-ness that Islam or Christianity are unable to even imagine. This is called Advaita or non-dual in Hinduism. 'One without a second' -- no separation of the creator and the created; no Shaitan or Satan who messes with Allah's will & creates confusion in the minds of human beings. Advaita is a very powerful idea. It believes that all human beings are God-potential; they are in fact truly made as an 'image of God' (as Bible suggests but is misinterpreted by Christians) -- this means that human beings are the same as the ...
Athira… and the violence of conversion

Athira… and the violence of conversion

Miscellaneous
Credit:- This is a repost of the article that came in PGurus.com "I didn’t know anything about my own faith and so I could not give them any responses to their accusations" Yesterday, Janam TV, a Malayalam channel, carried the press conference called by Athira, a victim of the Love Jihad that has the people of Kerala alarmed these days. Though Athira’s case is strictly not one of Love Jihad, it has been treated in common parlance as being of the same category. Athira, a girl who was lured into Islam by various means turned away from it and the press conference she called yesterday was to tell her story. The video is a poignant one and it is embedded here. Please click on the captions option to view the subtitles. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=clhtoJyP70k The video is su

How Zakir Naik manipulates verses in Hindu scriptures to propagate Islamic theology

Miscellaneous
This is a must watch video for gullible Hindus, and perhaps more for Muslims, who fall into the trap of Zakir Naik's excellent oratory skills. The video covers references to Vedas, Upanishads, Smritis from which Naik picks up verses, chops them, quotes them out of context, to make them fit into the Islamic theological worldview. The makers of this video have explained lies across a sample of his talks misquoting Hindu / Santana Dharma scriptures. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tW8cSZx6ZpA

Sufism in India – A bloodied History

Miscellaneous
Radha, 27th June, 2017, 12:10 pm The advent of Islam in India has generally been regarded as a peaceful and mostly non violent process. A variety of Sufi saints arrived in India from different parts of West Asia, and settled down here. Their interaction with the local people, who were at various times willing and at others reluctant disciples, relays the story of a mixed approach by these Sufis and other influencers who helped in the spread of Islam here. There is a concept of homogeneous empty time, as suggested by Benedict Anderson, who says that this empty time is available to be filled with information and the color given to this time period is dependent on the predominant cultural aspects, leaning of the historiographers as well as those of the scholars of the time. Anderson ment...
