“My problem to write this monograph is easier, because we are not generally fed now on that (distorted) kind of history and much time need not be spent on pointing out our misrepresentations of Islam. The theory of Islam and sword, for instance, is not heard now in any quarter worth the name. The principle of Islam that ‘there is no compulsion in religion’ is well known.”

K. Ramakrishna Rao ('Mohammed: The Prophet of Islam'. 1989)
