Man is born
with a moral sense which enables him to differentiate between
right and wrong. Without subjecting behavior to a common standard
of vice and virtue, social evolution is not possible. This is
the reason that even the primitive societies had words which denoted
difference between good and bad.
did not practice universal standards of vice and virtue, yet it
is well known that almost all communities knew what was good and
bad. For example, mutual fidelity of consorts, speaking the truth,
keeping promises, respecting family ties, helping the poor and
weak, were considered signs of good morality. Of course, morality
cannot be coded but its rules are well understood. From this attitude
arose the famous maxim: "Do not do to others what you do
not want to be done to yourself."
It means that
you must wish others what you wish for yourself. Since every one
desires security of person and property, liberty to worship, fair
trial, freedom of speech etc., these facts, over a period of time,
rose to become what is called Human Rights. He who violates these
rights is held the enemy of humankind.
morality is judged by universal standards, this Arabian religion
fails to qualify as the friend and guide of humanity. In fact,
it constitutes a major threat to the survival of human race. I
have no doubt that the Muslims will protest against this point
of view, and as usual, will produce far- fetched and irrational
evidence to prove that Islam advocates love and brotherhood of
mankind. This type of sorcery has worked wonders for Muslim fundamentalists
in the past, but with the dissemination of knowledge, it is difficult
to cloud the truth with the magic of misinterpretation, marvel
of memorization and mysticism of meaninglessness.
become a set of fundamentals which preach social segregation,
hatred of non-Muslims and elimination of dissenters through dominance,
death and destruction. These conclusions, no matter how true,
cannot be palatable to the Muslims and therefore rank as fabrications,
from their standpoint. I can do no better than quote from the
Koran to decide the issue. Examine the following for yourself:
"Do not let non-Muslims enter mosques. They will go to hell."
( Repentance: 17 )
"O ye who believe! The non-Muslims are unclean. So let them
not come near the Inviolable Place of Worship." (Repentance:
"O ye who believe! Murder those of the disbelievers ....
and let them find harshness in you." (Repentance: 123)
the non-Muslims to such an extent that they surrender and pay
tribute." (Repentance: 29)
"O believers, do not treat your fathers and brothers as your
friends, if they prefer unbelief to belief, whosoever of you takes
them for friends, they are evil-doers." (Repentance: 20)
"Certainly, God is an enemy to the unbelievers." ( The
Cow: 90 )
has cursed the unbelievers, and prepared for them a blazing hell."
( The Confederates 60 )
"Let not the believers take the unbelievers for friends....
whoso does that belongs not to God." (The House of Imram:
"O believers, do not make friends with the Jews and Christians;
..whoso of you makes them his friend is one of them." (The
"The believers indeed are brothers." ( Apartments: 10
"Moslems are hard against the unbelievers, merciful to one
another." (Victory: 25)
naturally believes in all such Koranic verses, which determine
his social outlook and he becomes a narrow- minded sectarian.
This psychological approach is the fountain of fundamentalism.
It is a myth to say that Islam advocates good relationship with
the People of the Book, that is, the Jews and Christians. What
I have said at 9 above supports this statement. If this were not
enough, one could refer the matter to HADITH, the sayings of the
Prophet: Chapter LXXI of SAHIH MUSLIM clearly states that since
Islam is the religion for the entire humanity, it abrogates all
other faiths. To illustrate the point further, the hadith no.285
asserts that any Jew or Christian who has heard of Muhammad but
does not believe in him, will become "one of the denizens
fundamentalism has become the foundation of Islamic morality.
What makes it a threat to human survival is the fact that it is
not a passive approach but advocates active aggression to impose
itself on the unbelievers. Why? It gives several reasons for this.
Let me quote two:
"Muslims are the best of all nations." (House of Imram:
110). Obviously, the best nation is superior to other people,
who must wear the yoke of discrimination.
Prophet Muhammad has been sent by God with "the religion
of Truth, that He may cause it to prevail over all religions.."
(Private Apartments: 28)
it means that Muslims are superior to non- Muslims and have the
birth-right to dominate them. This is why Islam calls itself DIN-E-GHALIB,
the religion of dominance.
As every student
of psychology knows, the purpose of any fundamentalism is to secure
blind following from its adherents. This is possible only when
they are conditioned to a certain object or goal which begins
to rank as the sole purpose of their lives. As a result, the purpose
begins to overrule the method of acquisition; whatever secures
it is good and whatever obstructs it is bad. In a nutshell, people
must stop thinking for themselves, especially in terms of morality.
As the Marxists brainwashed people in the name of proletarianism
and what it stood for, the Muslims have been conditioned to the
person of the Prophet Muhammad, who is projected as the Saviour
of his followers, having complete power to find them permanent
residence in paradise, which is the abode of luxury, love making
and lasciviousness. Since Muslims, in most countries are deprived,
depressed and desolated, they are prepared to do anything to uphold
the honour of the Prophet. For total obedience, they are at liberty
to indulge in the most convenient morality such as mendacity,
rape, murder, theft and treason without losing their chance of
entering the paradise which has been absolutely guaranteed by
their faith in the Prophet Muhammad.
of this belief is the oppression of non-Muslims by the Muslims,
who deny human rights to the unbelievers for upholding the Islamic
precepts in relation to the infidels. As a result, non-Muslims
are discouraged to live in the Muslim countries even if they have
originally belonged to their ancestors. It is justified on the
precedent that the Prophet Muhammad expelled all Jews and unbelievers
from Arabia. The modern example is that of Pakistan, the original
home of the Hindus. There were millions of non-Muslims in this
land before partition of India but as Pakistan came into being
they all were thrown out through malice, mutilation and massacre.
On the contrary, over 100,000,000 Muslims live in India and demand
human rights! In Islamic countries, the non- Muslim minorities
are either non-existent or very tiny indeed. This strangulation
of human rights has become a part of the Islamic morality.
is the Din-e-Ghalib i.e. the religion of dominance by God's will,
Muslim minorities in non-Islamic countries do everything possible
to harass, humiliate and harangue the host countries to practise
their faith and culture. The "Muslim Parliament" of
Great Britain is an example in point. In fact, this coterie of
a few hundred Muslim fanatics, is a mockery of the British tolerance
and hospitality. Its major role is to collect donations from its
adherents, forbid Muslims to seek identification with Great Britain
and practice all rules of Islamic intolerance towards the host
community. There is no concept of parliamentary government in
Islam, whatever, yet these hatred-mongers have set up this association
in the Land of Magna Carta, dedicated to liberty. It is only a
matter of time before the British government take notice of its
evil influence on the British culture, causing problems also for
those who have adopted the British ways and are proud to be sincere
citizens of this land.
Use of violence
for securing worldly goal and terrorization of non-Muslims are
the pillar of Islamic morality. It is done through:
secular laws which are made in the name of Islam, and
the laws which Allah has framed and require no legislative authority
Now, let us
ponder over these two points:
Islam declares Muhammad the greatest of all prophets and therefore
reserves the highest reverence for him. This has become an article
of faith. A Muslim, unwilling to force it on others, is considered
deficient in belief. As a result, every Muslim looks for an opportunity
to demonstrate the magnitude of his faith by molesting non-Muslims,
and even fellow- believers who express less bigotry in this field.
Politicians have seized upon this emotional condition of the Muslim
mind to enhance their grip on power. For example, Pakistan has
passed TOHEEN-E-RASUL ACT (Contempt of Prophet's Act), which prescribes
death for insulting the Prophet Muhammad. Such an Act has never
been passed in the world of Islam during the last fourteen centuries;
nor is there any religious justification for it. In fact such
a law in itself is a gross contempt of the Prophet, who wanted
to be known as the Blessing for mankind. A person who is so conscious
of himself cannot be the Blessing for lacking tolerance and understanding
of the human behavior. Yet they have done it to terrorize the
dissidents and non-Muslims. The treatment of the Qadiyanis and
Christians in Pakistan, speak for itself. In fact, it is an ambassador
of moral perversion which is an echo of the European Inquisition
conducted by the Christian clerics to defend the holiness of their
savior, Jesus Christ.
exploitation of the believers has led to their moral bankruptcy,
and this fact is well demonstrated by what happened in Pakistan
during the middle of April, 1994:
Tariq of Gujranwala in Pakistan, accidentally dropped a copy of
the Koran in a fireplace. As it caught fire, people of the locality
became aflame with rage. Not caring that Sajjad was a pious Muslim
devoted to exalt holiness of the Scripture (Koran), they alleged
that he had desecrated the Word of God. As mullahs of the area
heard of it, they instantly issued Fatwas of apostasy against
Sajjad. Like hawks, the fundamentalists swooped down on him, each
hoping that his blow would dispatch the victim to hell assuring
him (the assailant) a seat in paradise. As they were hitting him,
someone shouted that he was being dished out an un-Islamic punishment
because he must be stoned to death. By then, they had broken his
ribs and he was not able to walk. A gallant police officer intervened
and locked him up with a view to saving him from mob-violence.
As the news spread, a large crowd of frenzied Muslims appeared
before the local police- station demanding his immediate release.
The Police Inspector, instead of enforcing the law, fell for the
temptation of establishing himself as the champion of Islam and
handed Sajjad to the attackers. They started stoning him mercilessly
and thereafter set his body on fire. If this were not enough,
they tied his corpse to a powerful motor-cycle and dragged it
through the streets for two hours! After a pious show of Islamic
morality, they felt that they had done enough to avenge the honour
of the Prophet whom the Koran had been revealed.
of Islamic morality is rampant, not only in the Islamic countries,
but also in the lands where the Muslims have settled in sufficient
numbers. To explain this point, I may quote Britain where I live.
I wrote and published a book: "Eternity" in 1990. It
challenges the basic concept of revelation, the foundation of
prophethood. As the Muslim organizations heard about it, they
individually and severally issued a fatwa condemning me to death.
Neither have they given me a chance to explain myself before a
properly constituted tribunal of justice nor have they accepted
my challenge for a public debate. Its consequences have been painful
to me and my family.
What I have
stated above roughly delineates the Islamic morality in relation
to legislated law. Now, I may briefly touch upon the second part
of the issue i.e. the direct commands of Allah which are so evident
that they need not be legislated:
Jehad is one of them, and forms an integral part of the Islamic
morality. It is an open behest of Allah to murder, pillage, rape
and create widows and orphans for imposing Allah's will on the
unbelievers, who are considered His worst enemies just for the
"sin" of unbelief. Yet, Allah calls himself the Independent
(SAMAD), All-Compassionate, All- Powerful and Creator of the whole
If Allah does
possess all these qualities, how can He sanction the destruction
of innocent people? If He were so desperate for worship, being
the All- Powerful, Compassionate, Creator, He would have created
humankind in such a way that everyone was born with the belief
suited to God.
delving into this mystery, I hasten to add that Jihad or violence
is considered holy by Allah, who, in return for persecuting, pillaging
and paralyzing the infidels declares:
has bought from the faithful themselves and their belongings against
the gift of paradise; they fight in the way of Allah; they kill
and are killed.." (Repentance: 110)
A HADITH (
the saying of the Prophet Muhammad ) declares: "Know that
Paradise is under the shades of swords." (Sahih Bokhari,
Ch. 22: 73 )
What is paradise?
The Muslim scholars are usually embarrassed by this question and
pretend that it is not physical but a condition of the mind. The
above Koranic verse clearly states that it is a definite exchange
i.e. offer of paradise for killing a non- Muslim or getting killed
in the process of obeying this divine command. The paradise is
the main temptation for practicing Islam. This is the reason that
the Koran explains it well. Paradise is the description of the
luxurious surroundings dwelt in by Houris and Ghilman. Houris
are the most beautiful ever-young virgins with wide, flexing eyes
and swelling bosoms. Ghilman are the immortal young boys, pretty
like pearls, clothed in green silk and brocade an embellished
with bracelets of silver.
give every believing man no fewer than seventy houris and many
ghilmans. To make sure that the lucky fellow can cope with them,
Allah will increase his virility a hundred-fold! This is the ultimate
goal of the Islamic morality, and it is why that the Muslims,
who are usually depressed, are ready to practice convenient morality
based on violence. Even more potent factor in this field is their
staunch belief in the intercessory powers of the Prophet Muhammad,
which means that he has the authority to accommodate his followers
in paradise irrespective of what they may have done. I shall deal
with this point in the next issue of "Liberty."
