ADDITIONAL STUDIES OF CHRISTIANITY AND ISLAM
Shaikh has a mastery of Arabic, the Koran and its traditional commentaries and uses them to prove his point of view. Another important work in this regard is Why I Am Not A Muslim by Ibn Warraq, who also opens the veil of scrutiny on Islam that has been so carefully kept in tact by Islamic rulers today.

Islamic mullahs like the Ayatollah Khomeni remind one of fundamentalist Christian preachers in America who repeatedly assert that "God said" or "Jesus said" when they really are just voicing their own opinions and assertions. They use the name of God to promote their social agendas of controlling or expanding their flocks. God certainly has his own voice that can be heard in the heart and has nothing to do with any preaching. We all belong to the community of God. The real sin is to divide humanity into the true believers and the heretics, which leads to hatred and war. And if God demands such exclusive loyalty, such a God is a creation of human need and arrogance, not the universal truth or love. He should not be worshipped but cast aside.

The whole idea of a messenger between God and Man – that the individual cannot directly understand God but requires a prophet or savior like Mohammed or Jesus – is foreign to Hindu thought that emphasizes the Atman or higher Self. One could argue that the setting up of such a messenger is the real idolatry or worship of a false god.
