“…But the Mahommedan religion increments, rather than reducing, the rage of narrow mindedness. It was initially engendered by the sword, and from that point forward, its votaries have been subject, over the individuals of every single other belief, to this type of frenzy. In a minute the products of patient work, the possibilities of material thriving, the dread of death itself, are flung aside. The more passionate Pathans are feeble to stand up to. Every single reasonable thought are overlooked. Holding onto their weapons, they become Ghazis—as hazardous and as reasonable as frantic pooches: fit uniquely to be treated thusly. While the more liberal spirits among the tribesmen become shook in a bliss of religious bloodthirstiness, less fortunate and progressively material spirits get extra driving forces from the impact of others, the expectations of loot and the delight of battling. Along these lines entire countries are awakened to arms. Therefore the Turks repulse their adversaries, the Arabs of the Soudan break the British squares, and the ascending on the Indian wilderness spreads far and wide. For each situation civilisation is gone up against with activist Mahommedanism. The powers of advancement conflict with those of response. The religion of blood and war is up close and personal with that of harmony.”
