How can it be that for saying the above words in some parts of the world I can be flogged, stoned, sentenced to death or be murdered by a baying mob of peaceful Muslims? The way we are headed in the UK it seems that I can be punished for saying the same words here. How did this happen? Blasphemy laws vanished years ago, sharia courts (how are they even still a thing in the UK?) are supposed to have no weight compared to British law.
For stating the truth I along with many others can be punished. It is happening. It has started. You can say anything you like about any religion bar one. However obscene, however false and nobody will care. Yet state the awkward facts about one, and it is another story.
Let’s have a little look at how peaceful Islam is, shall we? As a Pakistani heritage ex muslim, I am well placed to reveal some truthful facts and information, however angry it might make some people.
There are three sacred books that Muslims follow. The Koran, which Muslims believe contain the actual words of Allah. The Sira, which is the biography of Muhammad. And the Hadith, which is a collection of stories about the actions of Muhammad.
Over a quarter of the content of these three sacred books talks about jihad. Many argue that jihad is an inner struggle, others say it is only when Muslims are being attacked you go full jihad and the honest Muslims will tell you it is to fight against the non-believers.
The honest Muslim is my favourite kind of Muslim.
So anyway back to the peaceful Islam and Muhammad, an excellent example of a man for people to follow.
More than half of the content of the three sacred books is devoted to the Kuffars.
Qur’an –At-Taubah – Surah 9.29
“Fight those who do not believe in Allah or in the Last Day and who do not consider unlawful what Allah and His Messenger have made unlawful and who do not adopt the religion of truth from those who were given the Scripture –(fight) until they give jizyah willingly until they are subdued.”
Qur’an – Al –Maidah – Surah 5.51
“O you who believe! Take not the Jews and Christians as Auliya (friends, protectors or helpers), they are but Auliya for each other. And if any among you takes them as Auliya then surely he is one of them.”
Apologists for Islam will say that I am taking these verses out of context and that I need to read the ten verses before these ones and the twenty after those ones and that I should actually read it in Arabic as translating these verses somehow makes them violent.
They should tell Boko Haram, Al-Qaeda, Muslim Brotherhood, Hezbollah, Hamas, Al-Shabab, Taliban and ISIS to name a few of the Muslim organisations who are following the words and teachings of Muhammad and the Koran. They recruit by pointing to the Koran and explaining they are the ones taking the words literally, hence they are more devout and true.
Now the part that gets the followers of the religion of no peace really angry and causes some leaders and mullahs to issue fatwas – was Muhammad a paedophile?
A 53 year old man marrying a 6 year old child in the 7th century may have been the norm and practiced by many. I have heard some pious Muslims excuse this by saying that people didn’t live long so had to marry young. With that logic would it not have made sense for Aisha to marry a boy of 12 or 13 years of age and not an old man?
Even if it was common practice in the Dark Ages, today we have evolved enough to know that marrying and having sex with children is a sick and disgusting practice that belongs in the Dark Ages, yet we find it still happens in many Muslim countries. Why? Because Muhammad was of great moral character and Muslims try and follow in his footsteps. This isn’t something they deny, it is the apologists that try and make excuses and speak for them.
There is little peace in Muslim majority countries, Sharia rules, minorities are persecuted, apostates can be killed, gays are thrown from tall buildings, women stoned for adultery (including when they are raped), little girls forced into marriage and women covered in black mobile prisons and treated as second class citizens.
One of the biggest lies we have been told is that Islam is a religion of peace and Muhammad was a good man. It is demonstrably not true, yet expressing this is fast becoming a crime as Islam uses the laws of non Islamic countries against themselves to suppress the disquiet about the abhorrent aspects of this ideology.
