How justice is the other religion is, of course, like most of the system can be

I'd like to just make a few points

So, this is from the beauty of the design, then incumbent upon us as Muslims to learn in the modern world, because these are the games that have helped to facilitate
the discussion a situation where the pre modern condition of war and conflict as a norm between the people has been plagued by the modern condition where conflict between people

So we know we do
To be forced to accept this religion, because religion is the truth that is that it speaks for itself. But
in accepting what will happen
the truth is come, your boy, whoever please we
go. Again, this provides a basis and it provides a set of principles for us to deal with each other in this
peaceful coexistence because there is no basis for me as a Muslim, for you to become

never had a majority in the Indian subcontinent, even though they have control better when they go to school to become a military might have to do that. Muslims again, and now most of the suffering because of that, because now they're
lost political power and immediate, persecuted the same thing in the Boston
bombing of Serbia, and those

military mindset very easily for people become, but they set up a system of poverty.
And then communities now fulfill community goals.

And that approach is an approach that is conducive to not only the perpetuation of the great advantages that humans collectively have made in terms of tolerating each other in terms of establishing pluralistic society, but also to build on as you know, professionals and just remove the underlying causes that threaten the erosion, and even possibly the elimination of
