Things that Offend the Muslims and Tolerance

Interesting compilation of things that offend the Muslims. And it is not just that “I dont like this, but you do, so be it” type of a deal. It is like “You like this, I dont, so I will not let you live peacefully with it” kinda thing! Like in one of the “debates” or discussions between Zakir Naik and Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, Zakir mentions that if Hindus take God to be a One entity, that is fine.. but he has strong objections when the Hindus create many “Gods” and worship. Now, he is talking in an seminar for bringing “together” the two communities and then talking of how he objects to someone else’s practice instead of trying to understanding it. The thing is pretty simple, if he has objection to what I do in MY home.. then I have an objection to HIS “objection”. For, in my eyes, I have an objection to everything that he stands for! So, where does that take us?

Tolerance is a negative term – conveying “I don’t like you, but will still tolerate you” – but it is still one that leads to let others live with their own idiosyncracies. You cannot and should not change the world… but you cannot start issuing objections, threats and throwing tantrums for what others believe UNTIL they start hurting you personally!
