unfortunately you wanted thenm to say CHRISTIAN sister or Hindu Sister or Sikh sister, I do not see a.need for that.

You are a sister in humanity and that's why they say Assalam O  Alaikum brothers and sisters.

That's my take.

Chief, The rest of what u said is irrelevant to my opinion.

NO i did not want them to say any other form of religion sisters or brothers...just welcome to everyone NOT SALAAM to brothers and sisters because I am NOT MUSLIM and as such Salaam is not addressed to me!

You will not say Salaam.... when we meet would you?

Pandit Motilal from Richmond Hill said it very nicely, that he have never heard a better greeting"may the peace and blessings of God be with you".

CHAM sorry that you find that to  be offensive however if you should ever attend a Jewish temple they say nothing else but Shalom.

When we meet and should I greet you in English with " May the peace and blessings of God be with you" is anything wrong with that?  

I do not think one has to be muslim to appreciate  that.

All they had to say was "Assalam O Alaikum", and to my non Muslim brothers & sisters... "May the peace and blessings of God be with you"

Not everyone knows what assalam o alaikum means....

I am almost positive one out of the ten speakers said that because it is something standard that is uttered.

Probably  Cham Did not hear it because she was catching up with a villager.

It all depends on the person at the time and their bed manners. I went to a funeral for a buddy of mine a while back and at communion time the priest told the congregation that only Catholics should go up, I was taken back with that. I happened to be with a United Church pastor who after I questioned this, told me he would have told the group at Communion time those not Catholic can come up for a blessing if they so wish.

Sure makes a heck of a difference in the way words are conveyed.
