So called Muslims are backward, because they are " NOT MUSLIM "in the sight of QURAAN. The paradise is the right of Muslims, where as, domination is the sign of Momin.

So true :):)

Comments by: aurangzaib On 21 December 2010Report Abuse
Because of gross illiteracy among the masses, perpetrated by their tyrant rulers through several mediums, one of which is called Mulla.

Comments by: momin On 22 December 2010Report Abuse
Anything active succeeds where as passive is defeated. That is the law of physics. Mullah succeeds because  
he is active on the other hand Quranists are ............... so the result...........

Dear All, I think there are more than one reasons for this.  
Dear Momin, I think we just started getting out of traditional understanding and Quranist are currently too less (comparatively). Let me quote a sentence for mullahs which I read some where.  
“ You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can fool all of the people all of the time.”

Very briefly, Roots of backwardness are just "illiteracy" AND NOTHING ELSE, I believe.  
After that universal truth, whatever we discuss is only the side issues i.e., WHAT causes the illiteracy.  
Once KNOWLEDGE is overwhelmingly spread in a society, no power in this world can perpetrate backwardness there.  
About Brother Mubashir's very interesting Quotation of FOOLS, I would suggest a counter-quotation :

Sorry i made a mistake in Quatation, please find correction in bold.  
“ You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you CAN'T fool all of the people all of the time.”

Brothers, I have experienced a strange phenomena in my life. I also used to think that illitracy is the cause  
of backwardness. But than I came across such people who were almost illitrate but on the other hand very  
near to reality due their honesty, sincereity, courage , boldness and love for truth.  
On the otherhand people like Doctor Qadeer , our great scientist says Prophet broke Moon in to two piecees.  
So, I changed my views. It is values that make a personality progressive. Neverthe less literacy can not be  
ignored too.

Maybe illiterate is not the right word, the correct word is maybe ignorance,unawareness. First, people are kept away from information, so their mind can’t be formed or urbanized. Then they are trained not to think (in case information is available and tempting). Omission of information, lack of knowledge - will keep them in darkness. People don’t want to look for new information; they don’t want to search for the truth because they already believe they have it. People are kept away from the urge to gain knowledge.

Sis Nargis,  
Call it "ignorance, unawareness," or whatever you may. When you set out to determine the ROOT of backwardness, step by step, the discussion would carry you towards the same end: "ILLITERACY". For example, the next question for you from me would be "What causes Ignorance"? And "What causes "Unawareness"?. What would be your reply......? ........Isn't that the same word- - - - -ILLITERACY!  
I think It is the ILLITERACY that breeds "ignorance, unawareness" or whatever terminology you might come across.  
And the important thing is that individual examples of exceptional people are not representative of the overall situation, or of the majority.  
I usually don't insist upon my personal conclusions. So I would just give the most concrete proof available to me and withdraw from the discussion. Pakistanis are a nation of 85% ILLITERATES. They are one of the most BACKWARD people on earth. (Can I use a more appropriate word than ILLITERATES here?....No!)  
I am not taking it seriously at all, my dear....

Cough cough, Dear Aurungzaib, i cant "read" what you wrote. I think you agree with everything i say and appreciate my holy presence ,haha:-D

Ha, ha, ha......... Dear Nargis,  
Don't be uncomfortable with what you "cant" read............... Rest assured,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, I understand.  
Yes, you are right. I do appreciate your "holy" presence,,,,,,,and your talents and brilliance are unmatched..... Happy?  
BUT, do take some 'mixture' for COUGH. It's a terribly freezing snowy wilderness up there!!!!!!!!  
Gives me shivers to think of it !! May be my feelings symbolize my old age ! Or, I have seen enough of Cold Weather and Snow while living in the Northern mountains for long years !

Dear All, i think the discussion should not be limited to why muslims are backward. Why point/think/wonder about only one group? Why humans are backward seems more appropriate................what say ?  
Muslims are backward relatively to current standards coz they are kept away from features which run current system like Education, Banking, Material world, participation in system of nation ................etc. Last but not the least Concept of a God who will always help them out by-passing laws of nature..............and keep waiting till last breath.  
I agree with Brother Momin and aurangzaib, illiteracy is a major concern. And Education can make a man skillful and self suffcient. Love for truth and attribute of acceptance against majority and tradition is a major concern.  
Humanity is backward as they are not exploiting and harnessing resources of survival effectively. Only resource which is exploited effectively is Human resource.  
Mubashir Syed.
