    Even Mr Gandhi said that the most humane person read abt was Prophet Muhammad.Prophet Jesus had prophecied the coming of Prophet Muhammad and he came :) Even in times of war the Prophet forbade warriors to kill women,children,animals and to not destroy any plant that benefits any living thing.He instructed people that not even a single dog should die out of hunger under the ruling of a president(khalifa) :)

      Hi

      Just reading the last few posts, it seems that you have interpreted some of my words in a way which critises the Prophet Mohammed. Please believe me when I say that no criticism was intended, neither of the Prophet himself nor of the religion of Islam.

      Having been listening to recent news items from the USA, I could well change my examples for the next time I record this chapter.

      But please don’t lose sight of the fact that, pretty well EVERY day, there’s a news item of relevance to P1 on the BBC World news

      And good luck on Wednesday

    Just to shed a bit of light: Muhammad (pbuh) stood up against several sick cultural norms in Arabia and general world, out of these many, a few were standing up against burying a female child alive which is still happening in some parts of the world including India. He also stood against cruelty towards animals, women being taken as objects instead of equal humans, rights of orphans. He even stood up for the rights of prisoners of wars. Because of this he had to face a lot of retaliation like every good person has to.
