Hello fellow Mulsim.

Yeah, anyway, I hope it works. I wonder if they will leave more of the religious specifics out or not, because the two major sects of Islam (Sunni and Shia) go both in very different directions after the death of Mohammed. Hmm.

Israfel3548d ago

Because that's a very complicated platform.

Are you an unbeliever? =)

I think this is a really interesting idea. I think the idea of educating people and understanding the foundation of a religion is something that's all too easily forgotten. When different parts of the world don't understand the heritage and culture of other parts of the world, it becomes easy to demonise a whole group of people. It's also easy to blame religion for the faults of man, and although this is an RTS, which doesn't really promote peace in any particular way, it will still have a story which underlines and underpins the reason why Islam came to power.

I think you are right, especially on blaming religion for the fault of man. Man is the one only source of evil on this planet, as we are the only source for good. I mean, religion was created by man.
