    1. Yes, off course Muslims must care. Wouldn’t you, as a TRUE MUSLIM, be happy that People are embracing Islam out of their own research, study, and observation and shattering the historically false, disgustingly inaccurate, abhorrently bigoted, and obviously jealous accusation of Islam being forced on people? It’s Warranted from you, as a True Muslim, that you care and be happy with such news.

    2. @”asli musalmaan” aka asli harami hindu sewer rat,

      Still pretending to be a Muslim, smell Hindu rat? Your petty jealousy of Muslims eposes you for the nobody that you are. Nobody cares what cow worshipping pagan filth thinks. Glad Covid is taking care of your kind.
