    Abdul, I have a Koran given to me by my friend a devoted Muslim. I read some of it and find it amazingly absurd. I can quote you some if you want or ask few questions like in the past. You have never answered my questions but come out with these sayings. I am not saying everything is bad in the Koran but some are really dangerous and stupid probably they were good over 1500 years ago when they had the most uneducated humans in the middle east. Sinhala version I was told has changed from the original and I can understand why some think like you said. Please give me the name and contacts of these people who think Koran is so good I will send them these questions I have which you will never answer me to see if they can. You know as well how many versions and changes there are in Koran from the original written by Aisha.
    Abdul why don’t you read the Greatest of all DHAMMAPADA and compare which is the best. I don’t think you have the guts or brave enough to read it and understand the truth. In Islam truth is wrong. For proves just look around the world. Just explain to me if Allah is so powerful why he/she is allowing let alone others so many Muslim men, women and especially the children who was supposed to have created by it being tortured and killed brutally by Allah’s own Muslims. Is Allah powerless in front of these terrorists? I am just trying to understand this so called greatest religion of yours as you say. If you can honestly answer it I may look at differently. Abdul you can “Con some all the time but you can’t con all the time”.
