Re: Open letter to Rev. Pat Robertson
Rev. Pat Robertson,
On November 26, 2002 you gave an interview to Martin Savidge of CNN. Your interview proves that you certainly need help. I am sure you realize that telling a lie is a sin in Christianity. In your interview you tried to misguide and misinform people by making wrong remarks about "Jihad" and peaceful nature of Islam. Just reading the translation of Qur'an and quoting it's verses out of context is a big dishonesty and immoral.
Without going into details I would like to ask you the following questions. I am sure you know the answers of these questions. These facts are in the history books written by Christian authors.

2. Who killed millions of South Americans and forced them to Christianity?

I am purposely not asking you about the killings of millions
of Muslims in
Can you please prove that the most of the above holocaust and genocide of human race were not caused by the people who claimed to be Christians? Non-Muslims also created the other genocide? If you are interested I can send you a bigger list of all the holocausts and genocide caused by the people who claimed to be Christians?
Rev. Robertson, I propose that you and I have a dialogue. You should bring a list of all the killings carried out by the Muslims throughout the history and I will bring a list of all the killings caused by the Christians. And let us compare the both lists. I am confident that I can prove that the killings carried out by the Muslims are negligible compared to the killings carried out by Christians and other non-Muslims.
On behalf of Islamic Supreme Council of Canada (ISCC), I
would like to invite you to visit
I strongly believe in bringing together the followers of Christianity, Islam and Judaism. These three great religions have more in common than the differences but people like you are destroying these efforts.
Rev. Robertson, your ignorance about Qur'an, Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) and Islam is so deep that you do not even know the basic beliefs of a Muslim. You do not even know how to spell Qur'an (it is not Koran, it is Qur'an). We are here to help you. We, as Muslims do not hate God's creation. It is a requirement of our faith that we like for others what we like for ourselves. We just want to educate you about Islam so that you can be a better person.
In the past we had asked Rev. Franklin Graham, Rev. Jerry
Falwell and other Christian leaders to attend our course Islam 101 in
I am looking forward to hearing from you soon. Seasons greetings to you and to your family and friends.
