I am an Ahmadi peaceful Muslim; I also support the idea of a peaceful (without deriding and ridicule) dialogue between the revealed religions and non-religions (Atheists, Agnostics, Skeptics; Humanists) all included.

I live in Toronto; can we meet here (or your like-minded friends)?

“Cyber Dialogue: The Future of Inter-Religious Engagement”

February 4, 2014

“PATHEOS” have provided a platform where adherents of different religions get together and share their views for peaceful co-existence in this world; they have given different articles under series “Future of Religion”.

I have written a comment on one of the articles “Cyber Dialogue: The Future of Inter-Religious Engagement” By Joshua M. Z. Stanton. I give below a link to the article and a passage from it together with my comments for benefit of the viewers of this blog.

“In fact, social networking sites may be of tremendous help to religious communities. They bring together people with strong religious convictions more than ever before. Just have a look at the “Jesus Daily” fanpage on Facebook, which has almost 3,000,000 members, or the fanpage for “Prophet Muhammad (Peace be Upon Him),” which has nearly 130,000. Imagine a religious congregation with 130,000 or even 3,000,000 members! The hundreds of thousands of people gathering on these fanpages are truly becoming a community of people looking for religious inspiration and companionship, who have found it together online.” Unquote


I like the article and I intend to publish a passage from it with a link to this article on my blog “paarsurrey” ; my blog is also for inter-faith and inter-religious dialogue.

Thanks and regards.

Are Atheists committed to reason as reason could go reasonably?

January 1, 2014

Please view full discussion:


Although I have come to an a-theist way of thinking, and cannot foresee my self changing from that for now, provided I get the same acceptance and respect for having that view my acceptance and respect is held out in return.
It is only in the face of adamant claims that I stand my ground.

I appreciate if they the Atheists accept reason and are committed to it as far as reason could go reasonably; to that extent the Truthful Religion does accommodate them within its folds; beyond that even reason would leave alone.
I don’t despise Atheists; I don’t judge anybody.

Just curious: you are using that word Atheist as a noun, with a capital A. Presumably there is some kind of militant organisation behind that.

Please don’t group me in with it. I have no need to “belong” to any such organisation. I prefer to do my own thinking, my own choosing and my own discussion.

Please note I used “a-theist” with intention. It describes my thinking, it does not put a label on me. There might be some things i would agree with if discussing with those “Atheists,” but no more, no less, than I might with anyone of any religion. Currently I do not align with any of them and prefer to direct my thinking along Buddhist (adjective again) lines.

But please keep the dialogue and the freedom of expression going.
