    I don’t know why this drama still airing. In indonesia, we have a lot of religion and we respect each other. Islam was not like that, most of people who learn truly islam will fall in love with islam. I believe it. Islam is wonderful.

    @niki “Everyday many people are killed to protect this religion . . .”

    Am I to understand what you’re saying is “to protect this religion”, people are killed? Are you talking about those punished for apostasy and blasphemy in your theocratic society?

    My thoughts on that; Islamic culture exists under a theocracy which is authoritarian. It doesn’t allow the individual freedom of expression or freedom of conscience and equality under the law irrespective of gender, creed and ethnicity. And so to keep the whole thing together, dissenters are killed under the pretext of blasphemy and apostasy.

    You know I’m right.

    All the above and especially “free speech” exposes and liberates a society of bad ideas thereby avoiding violent revolution. Plenty of evidence to support that claim. Look at Venezuela.

    You say “this drama distort Islam”. I don’t know about that. It might distort the idea of Islamic culture, but people are intelligent enough to know that they should take their information about a place and people from authoritative sources rather than entertainment media.

    And Islam is the Quran, Sira and Hadith, not the people. The drama may have distorted the culture (albeit comical and fictional), but it definitely DID NOT distort the Quran, Sira or Hadith.

    How long will the civilized world be held hostage to a group of people who kill those who disagree with them? How long? I want English subtitles. The rest of us just roll our eyes and move on at the stereotypes. Some could be considered offensive if one has nothing else to do but get offended.
    Do you Muslims who seem to view the Koreans as your pets really, truly believe that Secret Garden is based on real life?

    Hi, i don’t think drama is about islamic culture,
    but it’s about the lifestyle of richman who are having a oildfield in middle east,
    A hijab woman wearing a bikini, do you know that almost every woman there is wearing a hijab? not only moslim, even non moslim also wearing a hijab there.

    It is not about the religion, it’s only about a rich man’s lifestyle in middle east.

    For example, if there any movie about a rich man in USA, is that about the christian culture as well?

    Or about richman in Malaysia, is that about the islamic culture as well?
    Or the movie about a richman in India, is it about hindus culture?

    From what i know, hijab is common outfit in Arab, even christian woman is wearing hijab there, hijab is not islamic outfit there.

    It is not about the religion, it’s only about a rich man’s lifestyle in middle east.

    For example,
    if there any movie about a rich man in USA, is that movie descripting about the christian culture as well? Because mostly people in USA is Chirstian.

    Or about richman in Malaysia, is that about the islamic culture as well? Beacuse mostly people in Malaysia is moslem
    Or the movie about a richman in India, is it descripting a hindus culture? Because mostly people in India is Hindu

    It is incredible that Muslims feel offended all the time that are mentionated in dramas but don`t say nothing when other religions are. It is time to let people be free in opinions and likes, If you are offended with this drama, don`t watch it but let me choose what a want to watch.
