    Title: I am an Indian Hindu. As far as my understanding of Islam goes, Islam doesnt call itself a different religion. Islam calls itself the correct or true way of worshipping the Almighty. Islam doesnt say that other religions are wrong per se. But it only says that people of other religions have misinterpreted their religions and they are worhsipping the Almighty in a wrong way. If that is the case, why many Muslims Scholars and preachers publicly say that other religions are "wrong" and Islam is the only correct and true religion?

    Islam is to hold true beliefs, shun from sins and practise good deeds. Which books you have studied to understand and learn Islam? Please, tell their names, then in-sha-Allah you will be perfectly guided.
