Is it right to be
disrespectful towards any religion that we donít believe in
and spit on the image of their founders?
It is not
right to be disrespectful towards people. But beliefs are not people.
There is a difference between being disrespectful and slandering a
person and being truthful and stating the facts that can offend someone
who hold lies dear.
Cursing, insulting and being rude reveals
our own lack of education, and character. Muhammad himself used to invoke the curse of Allah on his enemies,
sometimes for 30 consecutive days. He even cursed his own uncle and the
dead people. We donít have to follow his example. We can do better.
People have to be respected, beliefs don't have to. Beliefs
have o be scrutinized and if found wanting, they should be abandoned.
Some beliefs are evil. It is absurd to respect them
just because someone might get offended. If people are offended by the
truth, let them be offended. Truth must be said whether the lovers of
lies like it or not.
