As a Muslim I feel we have not contributed anything positive to the world Watch

    Particularly in recent times. It's truly disheartening. All I see is negativity everywhere. Terrorism, groups like ISIS, al Qaeda, taliban etc, misogyny, poverty, weakness in military, backwardness, lack of education, honour killings, FGM, treating women as second class citizens, no prosperity or progress. We keep talking about being peaceful yet we kill each other every single day. Different sects of Muslims despise eachother and we expect ourselves to get on with non Muslims and for them to like us? To add to that, south Asian Muslims in Arab countries are treated like filth.

    We have no innovation, inventions, ideas, creativity and have made no real contribution to the world technologically or scientifically even politically in a long long time. Some may argue same could be said of Hindus etc. But Hindus are mostly concentrated into one country. And in the West, at least they have a great image and seen as much more positively.

    The only nice Muslim countries are the ones that got lucky sat on oil. Even then , we needed the West help to extract oil. It's depressing to say the least.

    Yet we sit back and tell the world how great and amazing Muslims are and expect to be taken seriously.

    Also this is not true. There a large amount of Indian scientists and engineers all over the world. Particularly in NASA and Intel.

    Op you are a self-hating guy. Don't drag 1.7 BILLION people with you. Why must you judge a religions achievements by how many inventions they have had?...it all comes down to the person...
    Around me i see so many Muslim doctors, surgeons, dentists, lawyers. engineers, businessmen and many others. It's you who chooses to look at all the negative aspects and forget that there are many intelligent Muslims in the world. And fyi FGM and Honour killings are forbidden in Islam, that has more to do with culture.
