Why People Have A Negative View Of Islam

Islam is touted as the religion of peace, foremost among the rest.

But the sad fact is that most people view Islam as a violent religion. And you can't really blame them for holding this view.

They see adherents of the religion only too willing to kill in the name of their religion. They see how adherents treat their womenfolk - often with disdain and contempt.

Of course, not all adherents do that. But you do read of them quite so often and you begin to wonder if Islam is really a religion all about peace and respect for the sanctity of life and human beings.

Lately, here in Bolehland, groups of people who call themselves Muslims are making matters worse by their almost daily racial and Nazi style rantings that make you wonder if they really care about projecting the good name of the religion they so proudly profess.

These people should stop their less than religious behaviour or stop playing politics. You are not helping others to understand and respect the religion of peace that you profess and want others to hold in high esteem.

A religion of peace would not want to create disharmony and discord among the citizens of a country.

A religion of peace would, on the other hand, want to foster understanding and harmony among the people.

A religion of peace would foster peace, not strife.

Kluang was a sleepy hollow, but is fast becoming a bustling town. You can't miss the bust-shaped gunung Lambak lording over the place and the town is well known for its tv brand coffee powder

Kluang RailCoffee
The Kluang railway station coffee shop, now re-branded Kluang RailCoffee, is well known for its cuppa of coffee and the charcaol grilled piping hot buns oozing with butter and kaya...It used to attract standing-room only crowds. It still does, but the last time I was there it wasn't a good experience for me. The famous coffee had somewhat lost its oomph and even the buns...The shop has a long and noted history being first opened for business in 1938 and the place is now run by the 3rd generation LIm family. I hope the next time I return, the coffee would regain its oomph. Click to read more...
