This is incredible!
Dr. Zakir Naik brings out the things that are common between Hinduism and Islam. This kind of understanding is crucial to minimizing and keeping a check at the growth of extremism. These presentations are necessary, particularly where different people in societies live together. It seeks to minimizes the differences and bring out the commonalities.
He quotes from both the scriptures with exceptional ease, and the video also flashes text references, in case some one wants to write it down. I have checked the Qur'aan part, he is right with his verses, and I am having my Hindu friends take a look at the authenticity of the quotes from the Vedas.
He sounds more American than British in language skills and is very easy to understand. The words come out crisp and clear.
The good news is only 1/10th of 1% of Muslims, Hindus, Christians and others are extremists. However these guys are eager to hurt others to get their point across. Thanks God, the world is blessed with 99+ % moderates. Imagine the chaos even if we had 1% of any group as extremists.
This is a number I will continue to challenge every one. You can figure the population and multiply by .001%, you will get the number. The actual extremists are less than that. Even in the extremists groups, not all of them are hard core. Put some numbers together ( Click Global list of terrorism available at: http://www.theghouseteam.com/mg/WMC_Extremism.asp )
We need to encroach into the extremist’s territory and bring them aboard, one at a time into moderation and cut that number to 1/20th of 1%. Most of them are good boys in the wrong crowd. Please remember, anomalies are part of the perfect nature. Like the Tsunamis or meteorites, we have individuals in the society, who become Tsunamis.
No one can change the hearts and minds of hard core extremists, just leave them alone and keep up with the good people.
Religious History is replete with extremists, whenever there is decay in the society, God sends humans to bring the balance back. There are many a religious wars between good and evil.
All of us need to encourage the moderates and keep their numbers stable.
You may want to ignore link # 6 and Link # 7, it is about prophecies in the Vedas, recincarnation, re-birth etc. The prophecy of Prophet Muhammad - Interesting, but too elaborate. Link # 8 Talks about Life after death, heaven and hell.
