Hi friend AllahuAkbar
I agree with you that there is no death penalty for apostates in Quran/Islam/Muhammad; and one cannot name a single individual who was killed by Quran/Islam/Muhammad to coerce to Islam.
So, we can defend Quran/Islam/Muhammad in this connection very truly; but we cannot and should not defend any wrong doing Muslim politicians, rulers etc of the past or present. If they did any wrong then they were sinners; their case is with God Allah YHWH.
We will only defend Quran/Islam/Muhammad.
All human beings are just like a family; every one of them is to be loved and noone is to be hated.
I am an Ahmadi peaceful Muslim
