There are large number of sects among Muslims, even within traditionally famed Shia and Sunni. Classically, there are supposed to be 71 sects including those who believe in rebirth and idol worship as well. Prophet is supposed to have said that only one will go to Heaven. Further, due to bloodshed and rivalry among family members of Prophet and fraudulent killing of his grandsons, there have been historical reasons of sectarianism. Each sect has its own interpretation of Quran and Hadiths. And believe others to be false. No one understands original Quran. If one could understand, he would be prophet himself! So all go by translations and what Moulvis say. This has led to a blind cult mindset. So a Sunni follower will reject Shia sect. Wahabi will bomb Sufi. Sufi will talk of miracles that even Prophet could not do. It is a mess.

That is why smart Muslims like APJ Abdul Kalam and Pervez Hoodbhoy would follow their own intellect instead of following someone’s notion on a book no one understands.

Disclaimer:  We believe in "Vasudhaiv Kutumbakam" (entire humanity is my own family). "Love all, hate none" is one of our slogans. Striving for world peace is one of our objectives. For us, entire humanity is one single family without any artificial discrimination on basis of caste, gender, region and religion. By Quran and Hadiths, we do not refer to their original meanings. We only refer to interpretations made by fanatics and terrorists to justify their kill and rape. We highly respect the original Quran, Hadiths and their creators. We also respect Muslim heroes like APJ Abdul Kalam who are our role models. Our fight is against those who misinterpret them and malign Islam by associating it with terrorism. For example, Mughals, ISIS, Al Qaeda, and every other person who justifies sex-slavery, rape of daughter-in-law and other heinous acts. Please read Full Disclaimer.
