A muslim says Quran is not corrupted. Please comment on this.

Śrī Anil asked: Pādanamaskāraṃ Swāmi, following question is raised in internet discussion forum is presented below. Please grace Your response to the same. At Your Lotus Divine Feet-anil

[A Muslim devotee says that the Quran is not corrupted. He supports this with the following remark: The names of the days of the week doesn't change, why?, because more people agree with it. The same applies to Quran. In beginning it was memorized by more than thousand peoples after the death of Muhammad P.B.U.H, and when more people were agreeing on one thing, how come if someone inserts his own line into the Quran, if someone tries to modify it, he will need to satisfy 1000+ peoples for this. And amazingly there is no illogical statement in Quran! Regarding showing video and audio of event of writing Quran from 1400 years ago; how is that possible?]

Swāmi Replied:- What you said is correct. If any illogical concept occurs in any scripture, we shall try to find out the correct angle of the meaning of the statement in the scripture. If there is no way to interpret it in correct angle, we have to treat such statement as insertion of some ignorant follower. We can’t say that the author of the scripture, God is illogical. We have to examine every statement through logic and then only we can accept that the statement is given by God. God is beyond logic, which does not mean that He will give illogical statements. This applies to the scripture of every religion. Nobody shall be a blind fanatic of his/her own religion. Your mind shall be broad and universal based on general logic that decides the truth.
