Helo balasri. I am a Muslim and I had been friends with a Hindu girl before. In fact we were the best friends ever. Our friendship started when we went together in the same college. I sat beside her in class and got to know her from then. I discovered that we had the same interest in many things. She likes shopping and I like shopping too. We both like cooking and hanging out with the same friends. We ended up renting the same room and we got along very well together. We did everything together and shared so many secrets together. During our free time we chatted about everything including matters about boys, life, school and many more. We even exchanged opinions on our religious beliefs and we respect each other for what we believe. I even took her to the mosque and showed her that was the place I will visit to pray. She did the same thing. She took me to her temple and I saw for the first time what was inside a Hindu temple. It was fascinating to me to know her as my best friend. If I don't know her in the first place, I wouldn't know so many knowledges that I know right now. So I guess I owe her a lot.

As of me, religion had never come as hurdle in making friends.I respect all religion and have friends from all religion. I visit all religious places along with my friends and close family members of other religions.I never entertain people who say their religion is the best.we the people needs change in our attitude so that this world will be a better place to live in.

I'm sorry my dear friend and I'm always open card on myself and I hope you still like me as your friend as I'm belongs to no one of the religion. I don't mind if you hate me after my sincere declaration. But for me friendship is always telling the truth. Maybe you rated me "-" for this statement and will always respect you as my friend...ever...forever deeply in my blood. I have friends from different belongings. They are Hindu, Muslim, Christian,...., et cetera. And I always respect them for their noble belonging and practice. As for example, just now at real time_08.30pm in Malaysia_September 11, 2007, via TV live telecast; the Malaysian government has announced authoritatively first day for FASTING month of Ramadhan will be on Thursday_September 13, 2007; so I will respect to the muslim members by not to have my drinks and foods in front of them within their fasting time and period. First and foremost, to my opinion respecting to others belonging is a must and need no argument on the religious matter and the aspect of practices. How about you, Balasri? Am I still your friend? please let me know. As Usual, Michael.

I kneel down to you and I'm sorry!!!Actually my weakness was, favoring level of comfort from you. That is why I don't and never make entry to any discussion about religious element or issue or matter, as I've learned from my first week of previous discussions. But due to not have miss your each discussion through my e-mail notification, I did made entry to this discussion. Lowellpendon, he is one of my friends' list, for the past consecutive 3 days had posted 10 discussions about bible or theology element, I just passed up and didn't make entry. But for you, I try to make the best fits, that was why that statements came out as phrases. You must know my friend Balasri, if I'm late or delay in responding to your discussion, mean either I am rolling up one by one for my email notification OR I'm not on board. For me, I must answer my friend's discussion unless for RELIGIOUS issue or/and theological issue. And again my dear friend Balasri, I kneel down to you and I'm sorry.

Come on Mike you don't have to do that.I know you are a gentle soul.Your cowboy looks may hide your true self.But I know what is inside you like the Durian which treasures the delicacy inside looking thorny outside.
