Oh My God! What an interpretation! I think you are reading much more than what I have written. What Guruji has built for the past 28 years is going to remain forever. You think any one can destroy it??? Just Relax a bit please! By the way that is also Guruji's message.

What authority are you talking about? Did you take any ones permission before you posted comments on my blog? We all have a right to express our opinions. This is my Blog. It says "Rendezvous with Rashmin". I do not force any one to read it. If you think its Bull shit DO not waste your time.

By the way I have taught many Muslims in the past seven years. Just two days back I had a few of them coming to me in an Intro talk and enrolling for the course that starts today in Bangalore. They loved me and I loved them! By the way the only Muslim, I guess who reads my blog, completely agrees with whatever I have written. Amazing is nt it?

Unfortunately even in Art of living people come for various different reasons. That is the reason for a Yes!+ course, we ask people to apply and then they have to go through an Interview. Only if they are selected they are allowed to attend. We have had incidents which I do not wish to share here. I have been teaching for the last seven years and I have also been to madrassas. Please do not ask me what happened there? Inspite of whatever is happening NO one is going to be stopped form an Art of Living course just because they belong to a particular religion. But yes! we select only those who are committed and not those who come for some "other" motives.

There are not just some good Muslims. I believe there are many of them. They sing and dance in satsang. I am not against any religion but we all have to fight against ignorance. Someone who believes that killing innocent people is holy because he apparently thinks that it was the word of God sent through a prophet who apparently is believed to be the last one that mankind will ever witness, then that one person has to be given spiritual education. I do not wish to debate about what the Prophet really meant?

Practically the problem seems to be that there are millions who think that is what he meant. I am not here to disapprove someones word or opinion about how a disbeliever should be treated. I am not so much interested in the different ways a "Kafir" is supposed to be killed but I do care when innocent human beings are brutally killed because they do not adhere to certain ideologies.

Even if a little boy speaks about anything that leads to Enlightenment accept it and touch his feet. Even if Lord Brahma the creator speaks something that is not conducive to enlightenment reject it like straw. - Yoga Vasistha.

    I read both the recommended articles..
    agree with you.. It is frightening to know that BJP may not make it to Majority given the useless third front.. perhaps the virodhi year that this is will wake up Hindus and those who oppose to the fanaticism of Islamists.. With Taliban at the Gates, i still dont understand why are my educated friends forwarding Manmohan Singhs resume!!!

    ahhh...... its so much more better. exactly what I was searching for. I've noticed that few things that I had forced myself to believe thinking that it is for good, now have broken down but it has made me more open minded and I have accepted this situation.
    Thank you

    Rashmin, you are doing a great job. It takes great courage being an AOL teacher and being politically "incorrect" at the same time. Do not lose heart at any point. There are many online and offline who do support you through words and prayers-even though you may have never met them in real life. Go on! A tremendous invisible support of Dharma, Yuva and Rashtra is standing behind you unwavering like our great Himalaya!
    Jai Hind!
    Jai Guru Dev,

    I think the clarification that AOL isnt against any religion was important as I have heard so many misinterpretations of several articles written by AOL teachers on their blogs.Fanaticism is the issue we have to fight.Religion is something we're born into. But no religion is bigger than lives of human beings.

    I love the way you have reverted to the feedback on your posts. people really need to be aware of things and then make any comment. agree with every word of yours. the links throw a lot of light on this as well. Yog Vasishta says it all actually...nothing else is required to be said and there can be no misunderstanding unless the person is seriously having comprehension trouble.

    Wow Rashmin. Great post. The content in two links should help so called politically correct ppl get the point. Vir Singhvi is no supporter of the BJP and is considered part of neutral commentator fraternity (read secular media).

    I am no great fan of the BJP but I think the Congress & the Left believe in keeping the country backward for the sake of votes and that needs to change. Jai guru dev.

    I still prefer the Congress to the BJP. This is because the Congress stands for nothing, while the BJP stands for something pernicious. The BJP has, in its DNA, the politics of divisiveness. It is true that the Congress has also played such politics, but out of convenience, not belief. That makes their acts no less heinous, but, in my eyes at least, it makes them slightly less dangerous because there is less chance of things going wrong, of a repeat of 1984 or 2002.

    And ya, it burns me up that I need to decide who I support on the basis of who is less dangerous. That totally sucks, but such it is, so there we go.

    Hey Rashmin, where are you nowadays? Long time no see!

    I have read all the related comments on this topic and i feel what Rashmin is saying is making absolute sense, guruji says acche bano par kacche mat bano, so we need to get our facts right in this matter and protect what is ours, saans lo to dharma ke liye aur saans chodo to desh ke liye.

    JGD Rashmin bhaiyya

    Some random comments from youtube users, i thought would interest you:

    1) I dont think all muslims are terrorists. Recent events and history indicate that there is much corruption in Islam.

    2) Manmohan as PM now and Chidambaram as FM. Both considred so great! But look at the state of economy. What is current account deficit? what was inflation? What were real estate prices? what were interest rates? Could a middle class man buy a house for 40 lacs? Could a poor man eat properly? This when we had these two in the goverment. What worse could anyone else would have done in their place?

    3) Rahul Gandhi has a wonderful 100% failure record. We want him to be congress president and keep up his record.

    Sahi hai. I liked the clarity in the link that you gave, it shows the colonizing - converting - outclassing attitude of Islamic fundamentalists
