What to Hindu Scholars
say about Islam?
Recently, we have seen false
accusations made against Islam and Muslims in India and Kashmir. I would
like to suggest everyone ignore these hate mongrels who will go to any
length to cause dissention and animosity between Muslims and Non-Muslims.
Let's look at what some well respected Indians had to say about Islam,
Muslim, and their prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him):
Mr. Mahatma Gandhi:
"Someone has said that Europeans
in South Africa dread the advent Islam -- Islam that civilized Spain, Islam
that took the torch light to Morocco and preached to the world the Gospel
of brotherhood. The Europeans of South Africa dread the Advent of Islam.
They may claim equality with the white races. They may well dread it, if
brotherhood is a sin. If it is equality of colored races then their dread
is well founded."
And in "Young India", he
"I wanted to know the best of
one who holds today's undisputed sway over the hearts of millions of mankind....I
became more than convinced that it was not the sword that won a place for
Islam in those days in the scheme of life. It was the rigid simplicity,
the utter self-effacement of the Prophet, the scrupulous regard for his
pledges, his intense devotion to this friends and followers, his intrepidity,
his fearlessness, his absolute trust in God and in his own mission. These
and not the sword carried everything before them and surmounted every obstacle.
When I closed the 2nd volume (of the Prophet's biography), I was sorry
there was not more for me to read of the great life."
Miss. Sarojini Naidu, Poetess,
in Ideals of Islam:
"It was the first religion that
preached and practiced democracy; for in the mosque, when the minaret is
sounded and the worshipers are gathered together, the democracy of Islam
is embodied five times a day when the peasant and the king kneel side by
side and proclaim, God alone is great." The great poetess of India continues,
"I have been struck over and over again by this indivisible unity of Islam
that makes a man instinctively a brother. When you meet an Egyptian, an
Algerian and Indian and a Turk in London, it matters not that Egypt is
the motherland of one and India is the motherland of another."
Prof. Ramakrishna Rao, in
"Muhammad the Prophet of Islam":
"The personality of Muhammad, it
is most difficult to get into the whole truth of it. Only a glimpse of
it I can catch. What a dramatic succession of picturesque scenes! There
is Muhammad, the Prophet. There is Muhammad, the Warrior; Muhammad, the
Businessman; Muhammad, the Statesman; Muhammad, the Orator; Muhammad, the
Reformer; Muhammad, the Refuge of Orphans; Muhammad, the Protector of Slaves;
Muhammad, the Emancipator of Women; Muhammad, the Judge; Muhammad, the
Saint. All in all these magnificent roles, in all these departments of
human activities, he is alike a hero." ... Muhammad is the "Perfect model
for human life."
