Muslims must widen their horizon in these dangerous times




  1. Understand Buddhism
    ===================

    Aung San Suu Kyi, the Burmese political activist and Nobel Peace Prize winner, has written a book,

    FREEDOM FROM FEAR


    Though she talked about the situation in Burma, but her book also contains the main precepts of Buddhism ! Therefore one has an extremely readable book, and at the same time, be able to learn Buddhism in one or two days!

    Once you know Buddhism, you can understand Tibet, Japan, ....

    (I don't know if there is any Internet version of her book, but her book can generally be obtained from book shops, or from Internet Book shops.)




  2. Understand Chinese, and those countries influenced by Confucius
    ==================================

    The Analects of Confucius

    moulded the Chinese society. No only so, JAPAN, KOREA, VIETNAM, THAILAND are all influenced by it. By reading Confucius' book, you can gain immense insight into the thinking of the people of those countries.




  3. Understand Quran
    ================

    Many Muslims do not read the whole Quran! Quran may be downloaded from

  4. Understand Christianity
    =======================

    Quran acknowledged that both Moses and Jesus were prophets.

    Books by Moses : "Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy"

    Main Teachings of Jesus -- 'Sermon on the Mount'

Muslims must widen their horizon today. I don't think it is fair that just because of the acts of a few Muslims in Sept-11, ALL the Muslims are regarded as criminals !

It is the same as if some Chinese did some terrible crime, and ALL Chinese were regarded as criminals !

In every society, or in every religion, there are good people as well as bad people. ONE LAW FOR ALL should be the Rule. Only those who break the Law should be punished. Those who do not break the Laws should not be punished, no matter what race, what religion he/she is.

If you think Muslims should widen their horizon, kindly "copy and paste" this letter to them, and ask them to re-send it to other Muslims.

If several email addresses are put as recipient, separated by comma, e.g.

tom@abc.com,mary@abc.com,peter@abc.com
the same email will be sent to each of them.
