… fundamentally Islam is peace, and teaches the brotherhood of man on this planet. We have to live on the planet to perfect ourselves, and if Islam were practised universally as brotherhood under the fatherhood of God you would have real socialism, from each according to his ability, to each according to his needs. The oneness of God is expounded in the inner teaching of every major religion, for this is a universal truth. We all know the Islamic world does not practise what it preaches, as the wars in Bangladesh and the persecution by Pakistan of the Pashtun people bear witness. Notwithstanding, Islam is a religion of brotherhood, and a masculine religion among a host of feminine religions.
