Islam is the fastest growing religion in the world. To this fact the media has again managed to attach a negative stigma. Perhaps the most persistent negative stereotype of Islam is that it is a faith of violent extremists, represented by a masked militant rather than the doctor or computer software designer living next door. In media Islam is presented as being a backward and barbaric religion seen as oppressive and unjust; and more then this is seen as being most oppre... View more info

Peter Gottschalk offers a compelling study of how, through the British implementation of scientific taxonomy in the subcontinent, Britons and Indians identified an inherent divide between mutually antagonistic religious communities. England's ascent to power coincided with the rise of empirical science as an authoritative way of knowing not only the natural world, but the human one as well. The British scientific passion for classification, combined with the Christian i... View more info

Legend puts them into four parts, and claims that they were sorted thus by Krishna Dveipayana Vyasa, an act so important to Hinduism that he was renamed Veda Vyasa for it. Passed on by oral recitation, there is no original record of the Vedas, but their origin itself is set as entirely in legend and religion as their content. Considered the holy tenets of Hinduism, they are divided into the Rig, Yajur, Sama and Atharva, four principal parts of the entire body of mantras ... View more info

Islamic Fundamentalism is a relatively new phenomenon and a radical departure from the purposes of islam justifying the means (or war) rather than the end (peace and social order). Terrorism has defeated the purposes of Islam in a definite way by blowing the aggression out of proportion. Elements of aggression are also present in other religious texts like say the Bhagavada Gita, but if illiterate unwise individuals exaggerate this, any religion will begin to crumble. Is...

Islam is one of the three major religious systems on the Earth. But this is not the only reason why we need to speak about Islam. Islam expresses the ethics of the attitude of man to God in laconic and methodologically true form. Moreover, the attitude to God, which was taught by Jesus Christ was realized in Islam and not in the mass Christianity. Islam plays a significant role in satisfying physical as well as spiritual needs and teaches a code of behaviour and conserva... View more info

The contribution of the Muslim World to a wide range of sciences and academic disciplines is often overlooked or taken for granted. In the troubled and extremist times, when the religion and culture of Islam are under seemingly perpetual attack. It is salutary to consider how much we, living in the Christian West, have in common with, and how much we owe to, the spiritual insights of that great culture. Religious tolerance, respect for learning, the concepts of chivalry ... View more info
