an effective tool for the Arabs because it helped them build a
vast Secular Arab Empire, which eventually laid the foundation
of a Spiritual Arab Empire. The former does not exist any longer,
and the latter is more burdensome than beneficial to the Arab
race in terms of scientific, technical and cultural progress.
Civilisation of the Arabs owes a good deal to their House of Wisdom
(Bait-Ul-Hikmat), which they set up in the reign of al-Mamun to
translate the masterpieces of literature and science from India
and Greece. This is how they built a tradition of gathering, increasing
and disseminating knowledge during their heyday. In fact, the
advent of the Arabian Prophet and the phenomenon of learning,
experimentation and teaching were processes of change, which honoured
the Arabs with grace, governance and greatness. But now they have
fettered the forward movement of time. Thus to all those nations
that draw inspiration from the Prophet as Model Flu Behaviour,
which it 1,400 years old, time has become regressive. This is
the reason that the Muslims have lost the dynamism, which inspires
nations to live vigilantly, vigorously and vivaciously.
Jehad is a
double edged sword because it can also be used by a Muslim against
Muslim brethren for personal ambitions in the name of Islam. Take
for example, Timur Lang (Tamerlane), who was born in 1336 in Transoxiana.
He raided Baghdad and various cities of Mesopotamia on the pretext
that the Arab rulers of the area were not doing enough to protect
the pilgrims to Mecca and other holy places of Islam. With the
purpose of striking terror into the Arabian hearts, he erected
a huge pyramid in Takrit with the skulls of his Arab victims.
In 1400, he repeated the same orgy of loot and murder in Aleppo.
First, he gave over the city to plunder as a mark of Jehad; then
he beheaded over 20,000 Muslims and built a tower with their heads.
This champion of Islam even destroyed the splendid mosques of
Nurid and Ayyubid times and allowed his troops to rape the Muslim
damsels, who had taken refuge there to save their honour. As he
heard that some of his soldiers had been killed in Baghdad, he
returned like a hurricane to inflict the most dreadful punishment
on the Arabs. He carried out such a vast massacre that he built
no fewer than 120 towers with the decapitated Arab heads in different
parts of the city. This practice of Timur was declared as fully
Islamic by the Muslim divines for having all the elements of Jehad!
of Jehad is not restricted to individuals like Timur. It is equally
rife among the Muslim nations. The recent Gulf War between Iraq
and Iran, the two Islamic states, explains the point. They had
declared Jehad against each other, though they both were pursuing
Jehad or the
pretended holy war in the name of God, has no relevance to the
modern world, equipped with the most lethal weapons that have
the ability to kill entire mankind within a few hours. Elimination
of religious war is the most urgent need of our times. Islamic
belief in Jehad, shows primitiveness of the Muslim thinking, which
has become a stark challenge to sanity. The philosophy of Momin-Kafir
has stripped the Muslims of their humanistic feelings and they
think in terms of Muslims only, believing in annihilation and
enslavement of the non-Muslims.
affairs stand, it is the Muslim nations of the world that need
protection, yet it is they, who are accustomed to satire-rattling.
The recent NATO military action in Kosovo is an example of the
high morality that has come to be associated with modern civilization.
The way the Americans, the British, the Germans, the French and
several other Christian nations got together to bomb day and night
for eleven weeks a fellow Christian country to save the Muslims'
rights, clearly shows that God lives in the West where people
are inclined to think and act like humans and not as religious
It is interesting
to note that while the Christians were heavily bombing fellow
Christians in Kosovo, the Islamic nations of the world did sweet
nothing to help the Kosovan Muslims except making dulcet noises
of brotherhood and questioning the noble motives of the West.
This episode demonstrates that the Muslims have failed to keep
up with the changing times. It is because Islam demands total
adherence to the 1400 year old Prophetic Model of Behaviour.
may claim that Islam is a perfect code of life for all times but
this is just a presence. For example, owing to the divisive attitude
of Islam, the Muslim nations must not form a part of the United
Nations Organisation, but things have changed so completely that
they have no choice but to join this organization or perish.
Islam is fully opposed to the modern economic system which is
founded on interest. The Koran forbids both receiving and paying
interest but the Muslim nations have no alternative to this practice.
All their financial institutions are based on interest, and they
continue this practice under fictituous descriptions such as profit.
What hypocrisy it is! The same remarks equally apply to their
legal system, which is directly or indirectly borrowed from other
nations. Take for example "Khula" i.e. woman's right
to divorce her husband. There is no authority for this law in
the Koran, which bestows this right on man alone. Even the hadith
women who break matrimonial ties and divorce (Khula) their husbands
(Mishkat, Vol. 2: 3148)
to the pressure of Feminism, "Khula" is becoming fashionable
in Muslim countries. Again, the Koranic behests about purdah (veil)
have become impracticable in almost all Muslim nations, and the
same is true about sex-segregation because men and women have
found it economically impossible not to work together in offices,
factories, hospitals, etc. For the same reason, even polygamy
is legally discouraged in many Islamic countries.
There is a
long list of Islamic practices, which has become outdated in modern
times. Educated Muslims ignore them, yet verbally justify them
to the fellow Muslims. This is a psychological malaise, which
has become the major source of mental conflict for the followers
charade is in fact, a clerical manipulation. It is a conspiracy
of the Muslim priest against ordinary Muslims. Most of them are
power-hungry men, without any moral or intellectual virtue. Therefore,
they wield the might of superstition to fool and snool the faithful
irrespective of its consequences to the nation.
the weapon of superstition which has the same relationship with
reason as darkness has with light, stupidity with wisdom and perversion
with piety. This is why more superstitious a people, the easier
it is for the priest to push, pervert and persecute them for his
own gain in the name of the Supernatural, who seems to remain
on cordial terms with him, no matter how antihuman his behaviour.
A look at
the Papal office reveals this truth. Having raised Jesus to the
status of Son of God through tales of miracles and mind-boggling
stories of his spiritual greatness, Pope first thoroughly brainwashed
the Christian mind with his own infallibility that Christ was
supposed to have bestowed upon him as his vicar on earth, and
then acquired the power of excommunication, which enabled him
(Pope) to declare a Christian as a renegade and inflict upon him
the punishment of apostasy. In the case of a monarch, it meant
that he was disqualified to rule his Christian subjects, who must
rebel against him. Thus, a Christian monarch reigned subject to
the pleasures of the Pope.
noted that Henry IV of Germany incurred excommunication, and as
a price of papal mercy, he had to strip off all his regalia, wear
ordinary woollen clothes and stand bare-footed for three days
in chilling cold weather before the gates of the castle at Canossa
in 1077. It was only this act of self-humiliation that persuaded
the Holy Father to pardon him.
Barbarossa, the Holy Roman Emperor, suffered an even worse fate:
he had to kiss publicly the feet of Pope Alexander III for the
sin of not acknowledging him as Christ's Vicar!
As the world
of Islam is receiving rays of enlightenment from the modern scientific
progress, the Muslim masses are trying to rise from a long torpor
of superstition. This is proving an alarming challenge to the
pomp, power and prestige of the Muslim clergy, and they are all
out to quell this awakening with an accelerated zeal of suppression
through their proverbially effective weapons of religious bigotry,
holy gossip and fatwas.
the Muslim world is that it has not been allowed to develop a
culture of dissent. Like Christendom, it has not been able to
separate politics from religion. This has exacerbated the Muslim
social misery beyond description, and even the politicians, who
are anti-Islamic at heart, find it convenient to fool, school
and snool the masses in the name of the Prophet for being highly
conditioned to his name. This technique works well because the
Muslims sincerely believe that the Prophet shall compensate them
for all their worldly sorrows by getting them into paradise!
Islamic propaganda has incredibly increased the social prestige
of the Muslim clergy: Ayat Ullah Khomeini was able to oust the
Shah of Iran and reverse the progressive march of Iran. As a result,
this country has become a prison for woman, reduced to the status
of a sexual toy for man. Afghanistan, once a green and happy land,
has been turned into ruins through civil war, prompted by the
zeal of Jehad. Not only the plight of women is no better than
that of concubines, men also have been made to forget the meaning
of civil liberties.
In the Indian
subcontinent, however, Islamic propaganda has bestowed more power
on the politician and less on the priest. This is the reason that
Muhammad All Jinnah, whose character was the exact antithesis
of the Islamic pattern of behaviour, succeeded in persuading the
Muslims of India to partition their own motherland to please Allah,
who is keen to create national disunity among the non--Arab Muslims
to turn them against their own country and brethren for imposing
Spiritual and Cultural Arab Imperialism on them in the guise of
"Momin and Kafir." One wonders what kind of God uses
the device of "Divide and Rule" to gain followers. God
being universal, cannot stoop to such contrivances. Since Arabia
is the chief beneficiary of this stratagem, it is the brainchild
of Prophet Muhammad, who aspired to achieve immorality through
Arab nationalism, which he termed "Islam" as the only
religion allowed by Allah !
vice is perpetrated by the priest and politician as a virtue in
the name of Islam, it is high time that the Muslims seek guidance
from reason and the universally established moral values. Owing
to the immense destructive power of the modern weapons, nothing
is more evil than war. It demonstrates the nature of Jehad in
the context of our times. The Islamic philosophy seeks to establish
a world-order founded on permanent annihilation of the human species,
unless, like Allah and His angels, it adores Muhammad day and
night. One can see clearly that the dream of paradise i.e., sex--after-death,
is morally below the dignity of man because it involves him into
a pattern of violence, which is the dictinction of lower animals.
Islam, Christianity has kept with the spirit of changing times.
Pope John Paul II should be congratulated for declaring that he
wishes to make a millennium pilgrimage to Ur (in Iraq), the birth
place of Abraham, in the company of Muslims and Jews. This is
an extraordinary statement for the Christian Pontiff, who ought
to oppose Muslims and Jews in accordance with the established
traditions of his predecessors.
orthodoxy of the Islamic world, which emanates from its regressive
attitudes and social frustration, is becoming a real danger to
the stability of peace and survival of humankind. A faith which
is just make--believe to avoid the realities of life, is a recipe
paradise, the most luxurious mileu for enjoying the choicest sex
after-death, is a self-deception, and the God that offers this
type of immoral temptation for securing worshippers, is neither
Divine nor worthy of worship.
Islam is an
ideology based on irrelevance because it seeks God's glory at
the expense of human welfare. It is a doctrine of hatred ardently
desiring to found human culture on the permanent strife of Momin
(Muslim) versus Kafir (non--Muslim). This is the reason that Muslims
cannot live with non-Muslims even if they are their own kith and
kin. Look at India: the Muslims forced partition of their own
Motherland to create Pakistan, which has become a living symbol
of contempt for everything that is not Islamic.
An even worse
aspect of Islam is its dictatorial nature, which does not allow
culture of dissent under any circumstances. This is what creates
cut-throat sects within Islam, which indulge in internecine squabbles
and internal wars. The recent history of Iraq, Iran and Afghanistan
explains this fact.
are the special prey of Allah, who uses them to establish patriarchal
societies for spreading male chauvinism to perpetuate His rule
through man's lust, ferocity and barbarity.
is neither so power-hungry that He will resort to such inglorious
devices to glorify Himself nor is He a weakling, who is dependent
on male power to enforce His greatness.
It is blasphemous
even to think about God in such terms. A selfish Being cannot
be God. To deserve this honour, He has to believe in the unity
and dignity of people, and respect human rights. This is high
time that the hidden motives of religion are examined in the light

It is claimed
that Allah is the Creator, who has created man to embrace Islam,
the true religion.
of six billion people, who inhabit the earth today, just about
one billion of them, call themselves Muslims, and the rest are
opposed to this faith, Allah has, obviously, failed as the Creator.
To make up
this deficiency, He incites His followers to wage a holy war against
the infidels and affirms massacre, plunder and enslavement of
their women and children as "good and lawful." Since
such acts are considered atrocious even when measured by low standards
of morality, one wonders if Allah is really Divine.
is exacerbated beyond description when paradise, the abode of
most luxurious sex, is declared as the reward for this unholy
violence against humanity. This is called Jehad; it led to establishing
a Secular Arab Empire, which eventually turned into a Spiritual
Arab Empire as naturally as a larva changes into a butterfly.
example of this fact is to be found in the Partition of India,
which took place during 1947. It was not brought about by the
Arabic sword, but the zeal of the Indian Muslims to carry the
yoke of the Spiritual Arab Imperialism voluntarily!

It declares that there is "no coercion in religion"
(2:25 ) and the truth must be vindicated by proof (2:III). If
the Muslim can prove that the contents and conclusions of this
book are false or far-fetched, I shall be honour-bound to apologise
publicly; otherwise they must hold their peace and rethink about
the divine origin of Islam.
