ok here we go , back in the day the Muslims were top notch at science , engineering Astronomy etc . The were ahead of the game in so many ways , so why didint they develop in to a modern community instead or seemingly going backwards like the Pakistanis here in uk for example . Some one told me ages ago it was because the Muslim states did not have an Industrial Revolution at all, but if they travel they world as they have how come their attitude's and way of life does not become more modern. Like the banning of music or the foul treatment of women despite the fact the the prophet treated women as equal . I am not trying to start a racial slagging of of the Muslims but a serious quest to discover why their religion seems to keep them in the dark ages after such a spectacular start .
