I am fascinated by Pope Francis, he is an ideal religious man and I like
him a lot. I will do anything for him to restore harmony in the
world. I know him now, he would not ask me to become a Catholic,
because he sees the bottom line of being a good Muslim, Jew, Hindu, Catholic,
Wicca, Sikh or other would be the same – to create societies where no one has
to live in apprehension or fear of the other, that’s how God had created the
world; in harmony. 

He said
it’s enough to be a witness of hope and, as St. Peter said, “always be

I really like this, with this I am getting closer to his thinking.
“Hypocrisy is a grave sin,” he said, underlining how important

A woman asked the pope how she should pray for one of her relatives who was
going to become a Franciscan friar. The pope said to pray that the man would

This is the kind of confidence I like to see
in religious men and women.  When I challenged a Pastor in Dallas, who
called Quran an evil book, I said, I will give you a copy of the right
translation of Quran
(2 of 25 are bad) and if you find three things that
are evil, I will abandon my faith and join yours. To which a few of my Muslim
friends said I should not have said that. They did not have the confidence in
the book of wisdom and were worried that they will lose me to the Pastor. I
have full confidence in Quran, it is a book of guidance to create just
societies, just as other holy books.

I have written the following pieces on Pope:
