1. Greet back more courteously:

It is mentioned in the Quran in Surah Nisa Chapter 4 verse 86

"When a (courteous) greeting is offered you, meet it with a greeting still more Courteous, or (at least) of equal courtesy. Allah takes careful account of all things." [Al-Quran 4:86]

If someone wishes you Assalamu Alaykum (meaning Peace be on you) you have to wish back more courteously Wa Alaykum Salam Wa Rahmatullah (Peace and mercy of Allah be upon you). If someone wishes you Assalamu Alaykum Wa Rahmatullah then you have to wish back Wa Alaykum Assalam Wa Rahamatullahi Wa Barkatuhu (May peace, mercy and blessings of Allah be on you).

If someone says Assalamu Alaykum, you can say loudly, with expression of enthusiasm Walaykum Assalam. Though the words are the same they emerge from the depth of ones heart with more feelings. This is also more courteous.

If someone wishes you (with expression) Assalamu Alaykum Wa Rahamatullahi Wa Barkatuhu and if you cannot greet back more c ...more

Yes they can, but they should also be broadminded to accept a Jai Sri Krishna from a non muslim friend
