Comment A fine example of the nonsense (Score 1) 381

This is a great example of the self serving nationalist nonsense that has so much currency in India.

Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence. Not generous misreading of religious texts.

"While in Egypt, Musa explained the way that he had inherited the throne after the abdication of the previous ruler. He explained that in 1310, the emperor financed the building of 200 vessels of men and another 200 of supplies to explore the limits of the sea "

Shame on you for believing the simplistic islamaphobic narrative......The jihadists have not got Islam right with their selective theology.
You're supporting their claim to the ownership of the religion...funny how hate can collaborate across enemy lines. The hundreds of millions of devout Muslims living peaceful lives - who are you to say that their faith practice is inauthentic?

Every theological argument that the jihadists have used from the Quran and Sunnah to justify mass murder can and has been refuted with the same sources. Religion is what you make it.
