This topic is beyond the perview of the Bhakti List, in my opinion. 
Therefore, I will merely point out some literature in this regard, and web 

1. A Hindu Critique of Islam and Christianity by Ram Swarup
2. Jesus Christ- An artifice for Aggression: By Sita Ram Goel
3. The Psychology of Prophetism: By Koenraad Elst
4. A History of Hindu-Christian Encounters: Sita Ram Goel
5. Understanding Islam through Haadis: Ram Swarup
6. Chaps 13-14 of Satyartha Prakash by Swami Dayanand Saraswati
7. Jizyah and the spread of Islam by Harsh Narain

These books will lead you to many other sources.

Now for some on-line Links:
1. Himalayan Academy Website

2. Some important on-line books are available at

3. The last 3 links at

4. On-line Discussion Forums at
a. Christianity at
b. Islam at
