Richard Dawkins expressed his wish for a 1000 years old Islam, the golden age Islam when a religion was leading the world of knowledge and science.
I always wondered how could my Indian forefathers who had the 4000 years old history of diversity, liberalism, who were ruled by the rulers like Ashoka, could accept a barbaric religion like current Islam.
Well off course they would never had embraced such a religion. That was different of Islam, Islam of Khwaja MoeenudDin Chishti, Ali Hajveri. not of Ghaznavi & Muhammad Bin Qasim.
