    Seems to match up quite well with people’s perceptions of muslims. Muslim countries breed violence.

    >only 25% people in the Western Europe are willing.

    What’s surprising is that the countries with the strongest nation states have the fewest number willing to fight for their country.

    • Masroor Hussain

      so those who are not willing to fight for their country must be very strong and peaceful necessarily? what a stupid remark. The West you’re talking about is the same which has disrupted the world’s peace through its long running false flag operations.

      • FuriousNinja

        He knows that. Ask him his religion.

        He’s another troll here on ProPk Disqus.

    • FuriousNinja

      Yeah I forgot that Fiji and Vietnam comprises of Muslim population . . .

      Your comments are mostly like this, care to state your own religion?

      ‘Seems to match up quite well with people’s perceptions of muslims. Muslim countries breed violence.’

      ^ Yeah, thank you for jogging my memory. It was the Muslims who attacked Iraq, Afghanistan, Oman, Libya, Lebanon, Iran, Yemen, Syria, Niger. You are something else.

      While your so called peaceful nations don’t even bat an eye when it comes to Palestine or Kashmir where the likes of Zionists and Hindus are murdering hundreds of innocent children and teenagers every effing day.

      Yeah, keep spitting hatred here.

  • Anis Ahmed Khan

    this survey is a ping check or a plus check in Muslim countries about the level of their faith in ALLAH, and as a Muslim we should be prepared for the last battle. always pray ALLAH give us hidayat and strength and right path.
