Description : Although the opposition of Islam is as old as Islam itself is, it has assumed a formidable proportion and new dimensions in recent years. Formerly, criticism of Islam was generally theoretical and was confined to the specific geographical area where there was some kind of trouble. But in our age it has grown into a "Global War on Terror" in which terrorist attack on one country and retaliatory invasion on the other was witnessed by the world in the recent past for the first time. In this war Muslims are at the receiving end. It is alleged that Muslims are inherently prone to terrorism as their religion itself teaches them violence and so there is no point in expecting that they will ever show a civic sense, live in peace, take kindly to modernity and contribute to the progress of their society and nation.It is a matter of great satisfaction that the majority from all societies insists on the freedom of thought and practice for all. Some very strong voices defending Islam and Muslims from the East and the West have arisen from the rank of non-Muslims: some high-ranking conscientious officers have even resigned from their jobs to lodge their protest. Nevertheless, the opposition of Islam is on the rise and has taken formidable dimension. This has created a need for clarifying misunderstanding and diffusing tension which are destroying communal harmony. This book is written with this very purpose.
