    Open mind helps in understanding and acknowledging contributions of different communities over the time. Probably you ignored the video where it talks about decimal etc and other improved versions of arithmetic. Lets not be that skewed to discard all the inventions.

    To further open your mind

    To further open your mind, please learn the doctrine of wala' wa bara' -- Loyalty and Enmity, including how Muslim husbands must have hatred for their Christian or Jewish wives, though they can love their bodies, wealth, etc.:



    And if your mind hasn't opened enough, read http://www.raymondibrahim.com/from-t...cest-in-syria/

    "Saudi cleric Nasser al-�Umar issued a fatwa permitting mujahidin [jihadis] in Syria to have sex-jihad with their sisters [muharamhum] if no one else is available. The Saudi preacher also praised the mujahidin for their ongoing fight against, in his words, the machine of infidelity and oppression, that is, the Syrian and Iranian regimes." - That is real sister, and not cousin sister - if you were wondering.


    And finally, please don't take any of these to be representative of islam and/or muslims. They are much worse than all those above. This is their benign side.

    Watch here islamic architecture in action (too bad we don't have video evidence of islamic architecture in action from ancient times ):




    Please appreciate the birds flying from one corner of your screen to another in utter jubilation, shouting allahu-akbar, as if, celebrating the coming home of islam to save humanity.

    What would you say about this contribution :-

    Afghanistan's Islamic hardline Taliban rulers ordered the destruction Monday of all statues, including a giant 5th century Buddha that is said to be the world's tallest of its kind.
    The order came from the Taliban's supreme leader, Mullah Mohammed Omar, who issued an edict declaring statues, including ancient statues of the Buddha, as insulting to Islam.
    "Because God is one God and these statues are there to be worshipped and that is wrong. They should be destroyed so that they are not worshipped now or in the future," Omar said in his edict, published by the Taliban-run Bakhtar News Agency.
    Afghanistan's ancient Buddhas are located in Bamiyan, about 90 miles west of the Afghan capital of Kabul. One Buddha, measuring 175 feet, is said to be the world's tallest statue in which Buddha is standing up rather than sitting.
    The smaller is 120 feet tall. The two statues, which have been damaged in fighting in the area, were carved out of the Afghan mountainside in the 5th century. Indian pilgrims traveling the ancient trade route known as the Silk Road introduced Buddhism to Afghanistan during the first centuries of the period identified as A.D. (after the death of Christ). Hindu influences were also strong in the region, but by the ninth and tenth centuries A.D., Islam was firmly entrenched though trade and conquest as the area's dominant faith tradition. Buddhism and Hinduism then gradually diminished.

    Islam is plague. It'll destroy the humanity if infidels don't realize its motives. Nobody is safe from its atrocity.
    India and Israel (Hindus & Jews) are true friends in this World. Both are Long Live and yes also both have survived and surviving under adverse conditions.

    My friend radical elements can go to any extent to remain in the power. For small benefits they can tweak a religion or law to make themselves stronger. This is turn work against the community which is already going through a rough phase in middle east countries.

    Excellent architecture of Bara Gumbad Complex in Delhi:


    Replete with intricate stucco inscriptions, the Bara Gumbad, or �big dome,� is a large domed structure grouped together with the Friday mosque of Nizam Khan Sikandar II (�Sikander Lodi�) (r. 1489-1517).The Bara Gumbad, or �big dome,� is a large domed structure grouped together with the Friday mosque of Nizam Khan Sikandar II (�Sikander Lodi�) (r. 1489-1517) and a mehman khana (guesthouse), located in New Delhi�s Lodi Gardens. The buildings were constructed at different times during the Lodi era and occupy a common raised platform. Formerly an outlying area of Delhi, the Lodi Gardens are a British-planned landscaped garden which includes a number of monuments (primarily tombs) from the Sayyid and the Lodi dynasties.

    These were the Lord Budha statues in Bamiyan. The statues that you see below were built much before the religion of the people who destroyed them came into existence. By the people who visit the places whose pictures you have pasted.

    Is this the beauty of it? Create your own, but destroy others!!



    Why don't you reform the society that you are representing here in such a dedicated manner? Why don't you contribute by going to the ISIS controlled areas and preach them non-violence which you so earnestly support?

    It would have been much better to see your contribution instead of copying and pasting videos and pictures. For every picture you paste in your support, there would actually be a thousand others which would discredit what you preach here and which would discredit your line of thinking/argument.

    Pak is worst hit by radicalization. Extremism grew multifolds over the time and country has been through coups and unstable governments. Country also got destabilized due to a hostile neighbor,Afgan. Such crimes must be dealt with iron fist and country also needs to liberalized and have tolerance.

    So, what vk23 has got as Muslim World contribution is 'Bara Gumbad' or so only. He is also finding it hard to tell about any contribution of Muslim World. If these Muslim wolves have been sent to this world, then they will have to do something for survival and such Bara Gumbad like things are result of it only. What good this Bara Gumbad has done to the humanity? European world has given the humanity a lot e.g. electricity, tv, fridge, automobile.....and many more. Indians also have contributed a lot. Zero, message of peace, yoga etc. But the particular wolves have given nothing but violence, cowardness, filth and all kind of injustice and negativity. 4 wives to men, but not 4 husbands to the women. It will be good if India get rid of these as soon as possible.

    Quwwat-ul-Islam (literally meaning Might of Islam) was the first mosque ever built in Delhi, It was built 1193 immediately after the Qutub-ud-din took control of Delhi (known as Qila Rai Pithora at that time) from Prithviraj. The Hindu temple in the centre of the citadel was demolished to make way for the new mosque. According to inscription as many as 27 Jain and Hindu temples were demolished to get the material for the new mosque and it isn't hard to figure it out just from one rapid look of the mosque.just like all the other mosques, it consists of the courtyard surrounded by the pillared cloisters on the 3 sides. On the western side pillars are arranged in more elaborated fashion to form the sanctuary. (Mecca is on the west side of India)Two original pillars from Hindu temples are placed one above another to attain the desirable height.Click image for larger version.

    Near the gardens of the Taj Mahal stands the important 16th-century Mughal monument known as the Red Fort of Agra. This powerful fortress of red sandstone encompasses, within its 2.5-km-long enclosure walls, the imperial city of the Mughal rulers. It comprises many fairy-tale palaces, such as the Jahangir Palace and the Khas Mahal, built by Shah Jahan; audience halls, such as the Diwan-i-Khas; and two very beautiful mosques.


    The wall has two gates, the Delhi Gate and the Amar Singh Gate. The original and grandest entrance was through the Delhi Gate, which leads to the inner portal called the Hathi Pol or Elephant Gate. But now the entrance to the fort is only through the Amar Singh Gate.

    The architecture during Mughal times was phenomenal given the lack of technology around that time. There were so many buildings built during that time which included Taj Mahal, Agra Fort, The Naulakha Pavilion, Badshai Masjid etc.

    The Tomb of Etimad ud Doulah which is often called Jewel Box is a real testimony of the great architecture. The walls of the tomb are built using white marbel and precious stones.

    More Info on this wonderful master piece:

    The tomb, situated on the eastern bank of the river Jamuna, is planned in the centre of a Char-Bagh (four quartered garden) with the usual enclosing walls and side buildings. The main tomb of white marble, is marvelously set in the centre of this garden. It stands on a plinth of red stone having in the middle of each side, facing the central arch a lotus-tank with corners. Each façade has three arches, the central one providing the entrance, and the other two on the sides being closed by jalis. Each side is protected by a chhajja and jalied balustrade above it. There is no dome. Instead, the building is roofed by a sqaure ‘Barahdari’ having three arched openings on each side which are closed by Jalis except in the middle of north and south sides. It is protected by a chhajja above which is the Chaukhandi (pyramidal) roof, crowned by lotus petals and kalash finials. The interior is composed of a central square hall housing the cenotaphs of Asmat Begum and Mirza Ghiyas, four oblong rooms on the sides and four square rooms on the corners all inter-connected by common doorways. The cenotaph of Asmat Begum occupies the exact centre of the hall. Corner rooms have tombstones of Nur Jejan’s daughter Ladli Begum and her other relations.
