      How about christian, buddhist, hindus??? not best, ???

      • vipin

        every religion is to be respected as it is an individuals way he understands god in his sense. wen we respect other religion we r respecting the personal freedom and sentiments of our brothers. So it is of utmost pertinence that we have an open mind in accepting and respecting other religions and at the same time ardently follow our own in its true essence. So my muslim brothers respect other religions because to others their religion is the best in the world. U can never convert all this people in this lifetime so instead of making them ur enemies lets exist as brothers and be there for each other and love each other!!!

      • anilla

        I agree on this point, but sadly as the world and tecnology is advancing, everyting is changing. People who call themselves muslims or christains are truly not muslims or christains, this is because if they were muslims they would have refraimed themselves from doing wrong and evil, since both islam and christianity forbid such activities. No one is pure anymore, they are just self proclaimed muslims and christains, they only turn towords god either when they are in trouble or if they want something for there own selfish reasons. So in the end both muslims and christains are just ruinnig the reputation of their own religion through their corrupted habits and deeds.

    Just wondering why you left out Mormonism? They claim over 17 million people.

    • Ben Bout

      they’re christians. If you separate them, you’ll also have to lower the number for christianity and call it non-mormon christianity.

  • balraj singh

    All religions are same and humans are equal, pray to god and keep faith, make earth planet heaven and beautiful. Help poor and feed hungry good and do best for each others that our true religion on earth.


      Dear sir, U r correct. But every one depends or obey to someone, tats GOD. And also, v don’t need to obey any stone. Those are all made by a man. Islam is not a new religion in this world. Its started from Adam(world first person). Isa(pbuh) is they are worship as god Jesus . But truth is he is also a messanger of Allah (the one god). Hinduism is old stories written by some writer. NW they are all follow as religion. Its followed only by India & neighboring country. Not in whole world. Try to understand. Islam is world fastest growing religion in the world.if u follow this, not only by u &also everyone shall follow to help poor. If u want to know abt Islam , ask ur Islamic friends. Thank u sir.

      • balraj singh

        I m a u must read sikhism and islam tells u how cruel u Muslims are at that time .I know about islam.islam is very good religion but muslims are not following it.they are bypassing it .Also numbers have nothing to do with religion, lot of animals in jungle but king lion is only one.please keep ur faith and religion for you and follow it correctly. Keep ur dirty mind invitation for ur dirty muslims. Tell them follow it correctly and make women equal laws.thanx much

        • balraj singh

          Also I have around 10 islamic friends and they are tired of cruelty too.also tell ur muslim brothers to be honest .

          • Saayella Hassanwalia

            I think u r 100% correct. I am also sikh. British also wrote that sikh have the best fighting style in the history. Our religion has did great sacrificis. I am not at all saying that other religions are down or something like that. I believe God is one according to Guru Granth sahib.

      • balraj singh

        Let the hindus do what they believe praying to stones or wtever , gita , regvida,,,,, u muslims just learn to be honest to ur islam religion…ur religion change from one country to another .no values for women or girls.even ur holy koraan is not written by prophet muhammad. ur own history and respect all religions. Learn how to be a good human and love others.islam is good but u muslims not follow it 100 % .give respect to womens especially.

        • khurram shahzad

          “.no values for women or girls.even ur holy koraan is not written by prophet muhammad.”
          Who said this “no values for women or girls” On judgment Day,First question from Muslim would not be prayer or fasting, first question would be how you treat your wife?, Your relationship with your wife.

          And we believe on Allah( the God) so Koran is divine book, not written by any mankind and yes not even by prophet Muhammad.

          Thanks for reading.

        • Mark john

          Islam is little daughter of christianity( her REAL FATHER). The world knows that christians are the real rulers in the universe. Islam was made to let people enjoy 4 Women atleast, fuck and sleep with own mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers. People became muslims just to be able to enjoy women, have too much of sex. Prophet mohammad married little girl ayesha when she was Just 4 Years old, and raped her after marrying her. He preached his followers to circumcise penis like jews to fuck more women, force women to wear hijab so that their private parts remain warm for enjoying by men. He preached his followers to live like animals and said christianity is father of little islam. Islam doesnt have anything of its own. It has taken everything from jews and christians like circumcision penises. Skull caps, keeping shaved moustache b

          • Mark john

            And long but cut beards. America will teach muslims a lesson and make them humans from animals by converting them to christianity, which is the super powerful religion in the universe. Many muslims have converted their religion to christianity and all muslims will convert to christianity soon.Islam and its followers will wipe out from this universe forever. Long live JESUS THE GREAT

            Mister, if that happens, the last day will soon desend upon this world. The prophet jesus is also a prophet in islam, so basically both religions are almost the same, and please avoid yourself from using abbusive language when talking about religion, cause i bet christianity has also taught you to respect others , and please if you don’t know what islam is then refraim yourself from talking about it abbusively . Thank you!!!

          • khurram shahzad

            Look at your self what kind of words you are using, you don’t have any knowledge of Christianity either. You are no more than a animal. May God give your right path. Ameen

            do u have any knowledge about islam. Without any proof and bookish knowledge it doesn’t suit any one to talk about any religion publically. like ur thinking i can count number of deficiencies in christianity.if u need to know about islam just read the good book (QURAN) u willl be clear to everything.

    ISLAM is the best the great and the only true religion on the planet which exists with its all purity, dignity and blessings. No other religion can match it at all.

  • Souvik

    I donot belief in religion or God. I believe in humanism. Serving to humans can only be the way to attain internal purity and to reach GOD.

    • Guest

      Recent toddlers like you think as if you are philosophers and define what is god. your views are just like a blind man trying to describe an elephant; you never get a complete picture.

      Just compare the philosophies of 3 people Lord Krishna, Aristotle and Socrates.

      You will never talk about the presence or absence of god again.
      When will you people get matured???

  • Souvik

    There is nothing called GOD.

    • NaiNu KiNg

      what the f*** you had spoken????

    • NaiNu KiNg

      be in your limits

  • Souvik

    If there was something called GOD or Allah why inspite of praising their religion day and night people are facing so many sufferings in their life.

    • anilla

      This is because no one is pure anymore. If they really want something from God or Allah they they should ask it with a pure heart and btw most people either muslim or christain find it a pain in the ass to pray, that might also be a reason.

  • Souvik

    Without donating money to temple fund helping the poor who are just outside sitting of the temple begging whole the day will be more gracefull.

    • shahbaz

      SOUVIL…i m Muslim .as you said that there is no presentation of God in world so its wrong idea but as you said you like being careful person or a helping man its so nice you should believe that there is someone who control every thing like stars distance ,day & night who give you spirit in your body..
