Here is an extremely well written article by an Indian software developer, who is also a Muslim, putting across the real idea of Islam and how terrorism and its critics have taken things out of context to justify their respective actions.

Yes, there have been few voices of dissent in the Islamic world against terrorism but one has to understand the situation before pronouncing judgment. This article provides a much needed and balanced view of the issues surrounding Islam today. Let us hope more ordinary Muslims come out and speak their minds in this manner.
