Islamic domination in any region always starts having a heavy breeding of criminals. They find it more attractive to live off inhumane and unethical practices. Worst offenders in matters of gender rights also are Islamic countries. Let’s see what’s wrong.
In one of his most acclaimed articles that he narrates verbatim in all Peace TV programs, Dr Zakir Naik answers a very pertinent question – ‘All religions basically teach us to be good human beings. Why then follow only in Islam?’.
In his characteristic style, Zakir Naik announces that “Islam is the most practical religion of world and hence the best and ONLY religion to be accepted by Allah or God.”
He provides an example that Islam not only says that robbery is bad, but also provides a practical method to eliminate robbery. Hence Islam is the best. He conveniently forgets that the following facts:
a. Somalia – the country with highest proportion of Sunni Muslims (the branch of Islam that Zakir Naik follows) in world, produces the largest number of robbers in the world. Somalia’s capital is the most dangerous place on earth as per all surveys and Somalian pirates have earned fame for reasons known to all of us. Somalia is a live example of what practical Islam means.
b. In Global Peace Index, the bottom five countries are those dominated by Islam – Iraq, Somalia, Afghanistan, Sudan and Pakistan.
c. Algeria (again 100% Muslim) is worst offender on human rights as per all surveys. In fact any layman can come up with a clear reverse correlation between proportion of Sunni Muslims and human rights in any country in the world!
Another example he provides is that of Islamic concept of hijab and rules regarding attitude toward women preventing atrocity and rape of women in a practical manner. Again he forgets that:
a. The worst offenders in matters of gender rights are the countries with highest proportion of Muslim population. Afghanistan, Somalia, Iran, Iraq, Algeria, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia – you name the country and check their population profile! (The only Muslim countries which are not culprits of human rights and gender rights violation are those who do not take Islamic Sharia so seriously!)
b. The Islamic requirement of woman needing several live observers of crimes like rape, or to prove that she is not adulterous, makes it impossible for women to get justice.
c. There is no provision of divorce in Muslim countries, and freedom to marry several women and keep others as slave-girls is ordained by Holy Quran.
What more, readers are advised to read the 5 articles on Islam and Women on Satyagni site (under Category ‘Islam’) to know more about practical methods that Islam provides for women emancipation!
On contrary, countries with lowest proportion of conservative Muslim population are among the most peaceful ones. Even in India, the state with least Muslim population proportion is the most peaceful and flourishing states. And we all know which states are worst in these matters and what is the population profile of those states.
