My opinion is one can emphasize the importance, good values and principles of their religion to others. But they should not procalim their religion as the best one over others' and also never insult and criticize other religions that will hurt the feelings of other religious people. The Almighty God has gifted every human great wonderful brain to utilize and the freedom to explore and discover the right path and the truth by themselves. So, for the sake and salvation of one's own Soul, every person has the right and freedom to choose his/her faith by him/herself.

Dear Sir ,great question and very relavant to our times
I will provide some verses from Glorious Quran in this regards
The Quran says: [Let there be no compulsion in religion: Truth stands out clear from Error: whoever rejects Taghut (evil) and believes in Allah hath grasped the most trust worthy hand-hold, that never breaks. And Allah heareth and knoweth all things. (Quran 2:256)]

If it had been your Lords will, all of the people on Earth would have believed. Would you then compel the people so to have them believe? (Quran 10:99)
The first pillar is the confirmation of multiplicity or diversity as a natural phenomenon and universal norm. Just as the Muslim believes in the Oneness of the Creator, he believes in the multiplicity of creation in various fields.

There is ethnical multiplicity: [ and We have made you nations and tribes that ye may know one another] (Al-Hujurat 49:13) There is also linguistic multiplicity: [And of His signs is the creation of the heavens and ...more

Again, intolerance could not be ascribed to a book which altogether excludes compulsion from the sphere of religion.

There is no compulsion in religion (2:256),

it lays down in the clearest words. In fact, the Holy Quran is full of statements showing that belief in this or that religion is a persons own concern, and that he is given the choice of adopting one way or another: that, if he accepts truth, it is for his own good, and that, if he sticks to error, it is to his own detriment. I give below a few of these quotations:

We have truly shown him the way; he may be thankful or unthankful (76:3).

The Truth is from your Lord; so let him who please believe and let him who please disbelieve (18:29).

Basically people are not commual but when it comes to religion they become defencive and also attacking due to psychological reasons of complexes which is due to historical records.Islamist in Indian region have ansestral roots to hindu and as such ,they are just like brothers forced for certain reasons to be opposit on venues of discard.An other angel it is the religion which has but put two brothers face to face courtsey intolerance ? Cant the liberalism be opted by our brothers to live and let live?Why their are religious ethics to over-power other faith practitioners by violance,terror of coversion by force of money ?Are those alleged niceties of other religion being propogated in tribal areas are only meritted on mercy of adoption of new religion ?

There are many people for whom religious community of a person is only identification criteria. They believe that by by hurting people of other faiths, they are doing a pious duty towards God. I believe that it does not suit us but everyone has his own views on that

This is the worst , In my opinion they are called in human:: Islam preaches (sorah baqarah 2:190) that the basis of justice is to show the noblest of manners even to one's worst enemies.Islam observes this quality "code of conduct' with people of all faiths.
Those who fight on the basis of religion are worse than animals . All religion preaches the same but the followers becoming worse day by day on account of fundamentalist and politicians.

They are politicians and others who for their selfish purpose exploit religion, many films have depicted this, there are two INJUNCTIONS IN VEDAS THAT STATE -
1] ALL RELIGIONS ARE TRUE,
2] ACCEPT AND TOLERATE ALL RELIGIONS.

Too much of emphasis on RELIGION, in all spheres of life, have lately become a taboo.
Can we not discard it altogether in favour of HYMANITY and practice the so-called RELIGIONS indoors only ?
