An Understanding of Islam by a Liberal Hindu Think Tank.
No one can begin to understand the great triumph which was achieved in America through freedom. In our freedom documents (Constitution) we can see secularism, pluralism, recognition of the age old yearnings of men for liberty and dignity, a set of guarantee for the protection of individual rights against abuse and the reservation in the people of the ultimate power to their form of government by democratic procedures.
America progressed through our freedom, moral of religious philosophy, critical inquiry, science, technology, education, art, literature, democracy and rule of law. Our advances in science, technology and freedom are the envy of the world. Critical inquiry, freedom of thought, rule of law is the American way of life. We have proved all people on earth that it is possible to raise to unlimited heights through freedom.
But unfortunately, America, the greatest Nation on earth is face to face with the gravest danger ever to confront it. We are faced with Arab Imperialism. Arab Imperialism is paraded as a religion. The Arab originated Islam is no simple, it is a forthright threat. Islam is against all freedoms, democracy, rule of law, our constitution, and independent judiciary, equality, pluralism, and Human Rights.
Islam promotes not freedom, equality, human rights, coexistence and pluralism. Islam promotes Arab Imperialism, Jihad war, extremism and terrorism and hatred. And Islam poses a potential danger to democracy, freedom, equality and human rights, diversity and our culture. It poses a grave threat to modernity and political aspirations of the many.
Islam can be defeated or wiped out if an alert and well informed citizenry dedicated to the preservation and promotion of our freedom and individual liberty, culture and education.
WHAT ISLAM STANDS FOR
No one has to guess about the beliefs, practices the aims or purpose of Islam. And no one has to be fooled by claims of the high ideals of Islam. The Islamic truth can be seen in the Koran, Hadith and Sunnha. It is in in writing for anyone to read. The basic beliefs and practices of Islam are promulgated by the desert Warrior, slave trader and polygamist Mohamed. The basic doctrine and belief of Islam are set out clearly in the Koran, Sunnah and Hadith. Fundamentally, these Islamic books say kill all infidels. Quoting the Koran:
4:101. “For the unbelievers are to you open enemies.”
5:12=16. “Allah made a covenant with the children of Israel… But because they broke their covenant, we cursed them and hardened their hearts. They changed the words from the places and have forgotten a portion of what they were reminded….. With those who caked themselves Christians, we made a covenant, but have forgotten much of what they were reminded. Therefore, we started among them enmity and hatred till the day resurrection”
5:64. “They (the Jews) are cursed for what they said! As often as they light a fire for war. Allah extinguishes it. Their efforts are for corruption in the land, and Allah loveth not corruptors.”
7:4. “How many a village have we had Us ruin! In the night our might fell upon it, or at midday when they were drowsy.”
8:12-14. “I shall cast terror into the hearts of the unbelievers. Strike them above the necks, smite their fingertips…. The punishment of the fire is for the unbelievers.”
8:39. “Fight them (unbelievers) until persecution is no more and the religion of Allah reigns supreme.”
8:59-60. “Do not suppose that the unbelievers have outstripped Allah. They cannot frustrate me. Against them make ready your strengths to the utmost power, including steeds of war, so that you strike terror in to the enemies of Allah does.”
The prophet Mohamed urge the believers to fight. Let all infidels and Kafirs tremble at the Islamic war in the name of Allah. Islam or Arab imperialism abolishes eternal truths, all libraries, universities, freedom, free and critical thinking, and it abolishes all religions, all morality and all past historical experience. Everything is in the Koran, burn all libraries in the world, thundered Islamists.The destinies of some of the 1.7 billion Muslims in the world are theoretically in hands of the Islamic Mullahs who have been accepted into Islam as authoritative figures or top leaders of Islam who control Islam by dealing swift death or severe punishment to any who oppose them.
Every Islamic ruler has been quick to use terror and annihilation against infidels and kafirs to maintain his absolute power over citizens, the nation, its land and conquered countries. One of the bloodiest of Islam’s ruthless dealings with any whom it fancies to be an enemy or even a potential enemy can be seen in Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Syria, Pakistan, and Iran. Their aim is the literal extermination of any the Islamic rulers regarded as an opponent.
Koran reiterates 9:1, 3, and 5. : For four months you shall journey freely in the land but know that you shall not render Allah incapable, and that Allah will humiliate the unbelievers…. And give glad tidings to the unbelievers of a painful punishment. When the sacred months are over, slay the idolaters wherever you find them. Take them and confine them, then lie in ambush everywhere for them.”
9”14. “Fight them (unbelievers) Allah will punish them with your hands and degrade them. He will grant you victory over them and heal the chests of a believing nation.”
The history of Islamic conquered countries, the majority of thinkers, writers, religious leaders were wiped out and those who resisted Islamic butchery were slaughtered. In India itself, many of the large scale Islamic projects have been manned by labor slaves forced to work without pay as punishment for alleged crime against Islam, for unfaithfulness to Islam, for violation of Sharia law, or resisting coercive Islamic conversion. The victims include, Hindus, Buddhists, Jains and Sikhs.
This ruthless Islamic practice and disregard of human life and dignity carries right down to every person in an Islamic country. Islamic plunder, looting and exploitation can be termed as the most barbarous crime in world history.
To the Islamists, morals, ethics, freedom, democracy, integrity, truth seeking, independent inquiry is merely words of the infidels. Indicative of this total disregard for human life, freedom and democracy, integrity and human rights are the words and deeds of Jihad terrorists, al-Qaida, and Islamic terrorists masquerading as different groups in Islamic countries. Pursuant to this brutal Islamic philosophy, Jihadists consider life of infidels means no more than pebbles on a beach.
I do believe that democratic countries do not understand what faces us. I believe that the greatest danger still Imperialist Islam and all Islamic countries want to make the world into Dar-Ul-Islam and free citizens must be forced to live under Sharia Law.
Imagine the world under Sharia law and all democratic countries becoming followers of the closed dogma called Islam.
The proof of that Islam is against all freedoms, democracy, pluralism, critical inquiry, coexistence, and tolerance, is evident in its history. Islamic history and current practices amply proves that what Islam is what it stands for and how Islam relentlessly uses converted Muslins for promoting undemocratic, rigid, non-compromising Arab imperialism. Islamic Jihadist use brutal methods Including murder, violence, and oppression, sexual exploitation of women, cultural destruction and Jihad terrorism.
Every free person everywhere , and especially in America, India, Israel and Europe should read and understand the Koran, SHARILAW, Hadith and Sunnah and the real intentions of Muslims and then ask ourselves , “Is that what I want for myself, my family or for my country”.
HOW ISLAM EXPANDS
For generations, Arabia –with its vast area extending over part of Asia and with a population of 200000had been ruled by Islamists with an iron hand. Great luxury enjoyed by Arabs sheiks were matched by great poverty among the people. The poor people had no voice in the government, freedom in matters of religion. Looting, plunder and brutality, beheading, assassination, mass murder and massacre were common in dealing with the people. Arab Islamists were successful in forcefully converting and destroying indigenous culture of Egypt, Persia, Pakistan, Syria, Somalia, Sudan Yemen, Algeria, Tunisia, and parts of India.
Islam spreads to part of Europe, Africa and Asia through brutality, mass murder, plunder and looting. This continuing Islamic brutality was finally halted when Europeans were able to muster enough strength and power to halt Islamic expansion. The Islamic attacks were swift and brutal.
Of all countries, Islam attacked, India suffered the most. Islamic looter’s slogan was Allah. And Islamic invaders working with Arabic-Islamic destructive oratory thundered against pluralistic culture and Vedic values and the creation of Islamic state. We hear the shrill cries of Islam (Allah Akbar) in today’s India.
Even today, India pays a heavy price for Islamic brutalities. In Assam, a north eastern state in India, converted Muslims from Bangladesh has forcefully evicted innocent Hindus and Buddhists from their ancestral land. There are 4o million Muslims in West Bengal and Assam willing to wage a Jihad war against Hindus. In Kashmir, all Hindus are either killed, forcefully converted or forced out of their home and are currently living in filthy refugee camps. In Kerala, Muslim Jihadists have carved out a district for themselves and kicked out all Hindus from their land. There are more Islamists in India than any other country on earth. In Bihar, UP, Madhya Pradesh, Muslims are planning a corridor for themselves stretching from Afghanistan-Pakistan, Nepal, Bangladesh, Malaysia and Indonesia.
ISLAM AND INTERNATIONAL HUMAN RIGHTS PROTECTION
The International System of human rights protection built over the last 60 years is based on the understanding not only that human rights are universal, but they have transcended the sovereignty of individual states. Despite democratic countries leading role in establishing human rights for all, Islamic states are reluctant to submit to international human rights law and accept minimum standards for dealing with non-Muslims.
We demand that all Islamic countries should accept the primacy of international human rights standards. Islamic countries must rectify without reservation all human rights treaties and human rights laws.
The use and abuse of Islamic Sharia Law by Islamic countries have taken many cruel forms in decades. For example, an Islamic Fatwa was issued in Egypt that sex with a dead woman is justified under Islamic jurisprudence. Another example is that in Pakistan, Iran and Bangladesh Hindus, Jews, Christians, Sikhs and Buddhists and all infidels can be arrested without any valid reason, prosecuted and sentenced to long term prison terms under the cruel and unusual Blasphemy laws.
Another example of Islamic countries ignoring international law was the discrimination of women in all Islamic countries. Women in Islamic countries are forbidden from higher education, jobs, driving, and marriage. Women are abused, beaten up, stoned to death for minor infractions and petty crimes in Islamic countries.
The Islamic countries argue that under the Islamic Sharia Law , the international legal system, treaties and human rights laws are inferior in status to sharia Laws.
In a direct challenge to international law, Islamic countries on several occasions claimed that the The International human rights laws are not binding on them even though international courts have considered human rights as part of customary law binding on all nations.
Recently, I was detained at an Islamic country and I had been subjected to a lengthy interrogation without a lawyer and an official from the American Embassy. The bizarre questioning and integration was in Arabic and I did not speak or understand Arabic. I was subjected to harassment, discrimination and outright violation of liberty and human rights and I refused to answer their questions. I was told not to visit that Arab country again and the sharia judge stated that the Islamic state has not signed any international treaties and human rights law and therefore not bound by it. This episode clearly runs directly counter to the long standing principle of international law.
The brutal, uncivilized Islam can be defeated or wiped out if an alert and well informed citizenry dedicated to the preservation and promotion of our freedom and individual liberty, democracy, culture and our education.
I am reminded of an old GM advertisement for Oldsmobile car. “This not your father’s Oldsmobile.” Since Oldsmobile’s are no longer built, it may not be an apt illustration. A Muslim is a Muslim and hardened Islamists cannot or will not alter their behavior or midst. Consciously or unconsciously people think that there are moderate Muslims, Jihad Terrorists and non-practicing Muslims among Shias or Sunnis. Amazingly, the false and fluid understanding of Islam and projecting them as peaceful has provided Islamists increased opportunities for expansion.
Deviant amplifying Islamic communities around the world supports them. We cannot change them by unconditional positive regard, appeasement or through non coercive methods. They act like a criminal without fear, guilt, shame or empathy for the victims. But a well-informed, active and dedicated citizenry can corner them contain these Jihadi terrorists and their ruthless expansion can be halted to save our country, democracy and liberty.
All freedom loving, democratic citizens from India, Israel, Europe and America must join together for an important role to play to diminish the brutal power of Islamists. They must exert considerable influence on virtually every aspect of our life including individual liberty, culture and civilized life.
