Question # : 261

United Kingdom

I am a member of This site was established to foster friendship between the peoples of India and Pakistan. Of late some members (Eg. Zeemax aka Zaheed Maqbool) are calling that all Indians are Hindus, therefore they need to be converted to Islam or killed. There are many examples of this type on this forum Chowk. India، as we all know، is meant for the people of all faiths with equality in all spheres of life. Should non-Muslims be killed or converted by force?

The saying of some members is nonsense. Islam neither allows to convert non-Muslims forcefully nor to kill them. The Quran says: Let there be no compulsion In religion: truth stands out clear from error. (2/256) According to Islam, one is free to choose Islam or to remain on his religion.
