  13. What do you want to acheive from these articles?

Question: Why do you hate Muslims?

Answer:

No, we do not hate Muslims, or any human being for that matter. That is against the Vedas. In fact, we love the Muslims of the world even though many Muslims may hate us because of our refusal to consider the modern Quran as final word of God. For us all human beings including Muslims are as lovable, as a child is to the mother.

Question: If you do not hate, then why do you write against Islam?

Answer:

We are not writing against Islam. We write against the mindset that believes that those who do not blindly follow certain books shall go to Hell forever. Further, we are against any book, person, or ideology that preaches inferior status for certain people based on their birth. Especially we believe in high respect for women and cannot tolerate anything that denigrates them or gives them an inferior status. Additionally, we believe in rationality and consider it our duty to fight ignorance. Many things in modern Quran and Hadiths are against morality, logic and self-contradictory. To condemn majority of people in world to eternal Hell based on such a book is intolerance and we are resolved to stand against it.

We do not believe in violence, and hence prefer to present our stand through our expression, which is our fundamental right. While we write against blind beliefs, we still regard their followers as our own family members. So our expression is to be taken in same spirit as one takes differing views of different members of same close family.

Question: Why do not you let them believe what they believe? Why do you need to hurt their sentiments?

Answer:

Vedas say that we should love others in same manner as a mother loves her child. Mother does not let her child do whatever it wants. If the child is committing a mistake, mother will not remain ignorant and guide it. Similarly, we do not want to hurt any sentiments, but bring facts and evidences to spur up a rational unbiased thinking. But we do not want to push our ideology down the throat forcibly or threaten anyone to believe in us. That is the way of criminals. We believe in way of the scientists wherein we present our arguments and analysis and leave it on the people to believe or reject it. Only those people would feel hurt who believe blindly without reason. Those having faculty of reasoning will take our articles in spirit of a scientist. This scientist spirit is what we want to inculcate.

Question: Why do you quote from anti-Islamic sites to present biased view of Islam?

Answer:

No, all our references are from Islamic sites and Islamic texts written by prominent authors of Islam. So if you have any objection to material on Agniveer, please discuss with maulvis and ask them to issue fatwa that the books and sites having references that we are quoting should remove them or face punishment.

Question: Does Islam have nothing good? Why you only show the negative aspects?

Answer:

We never claimed that Islam has nothing good. There are a lot of good practices in Islam and we respect that. We respect, for example, the fact that Islam is against nudity and vulgarity. Though we rue the fact that no Imam ever issued a fatwa that all Muslims involved in glamor world like actors, actresses, item girls etc are anti-Islamic and shall go to Hell. While we receive so many death threats, these glamor professionals receive hardly any simply because they were born Muslims!

The only points we want to convey are that:
a. Modern scriptures of Islam cannot be claimed to be the final word of Allah
b. To declare that all who do not believe in Muhammad, this Quran, Angels, Heaven and Hell alone can go to Heaven and rest shall burn in Hell forever
c. No religion can be above humanity. If any text denigrates women, or differentiates between different sections of societies based on their personal beliefs, it is better to reject that text than to reject humanity.

Other than that, we acknowledge the qualities of Muhammad and Islam, as provided in our article – Muhammad – a genius misunderstood!

Question: If you believe in freedom of personal belief, why you are against gays?

Answer:

We have provided evidence that homosexuality breeds lifetaking diseases, is unnatural and that it is a mental and not a genetic characteristic. We thus are against acceptance of homosexuality in interest of overall society. But we do not deny homosexuals their normal rights as citizens or human beings or believe that a Jaziya should be charged to give them security. It is just that we are against allowing people to make bombs or breed diseases for general public, even in privacy.

Question: You present views of one sect of Islam and claim to be applicable for all. Why?

Answer:

We agree that Islam has so many sects with differing views, each claiming to be the only right path, that there is hardly anything common between them. Even the interpretations of Quran and Hadiths vary. Hence we go by the majority or prominent view. Wherever required, we mention that it is view of one particular sect. For example, Mutah or temporary marriage is allowed only in Shias.

Question: If Islam is so bad, why is not every Muslim a terrorist?

Answer:

We agree with Zakir Naik that we should never judge a car by its driver. That is why even the statistics of growth of Muslim population is meaningless. Like Zakir, we believe that one should know a religion by its scriptures. Hence we merely analyze the scriptures and those people who take these scriptures too seriously. Most Muslims are muslims merely by birth and no very little about scriptures except some rituals and traditions. Since the majority Muslims do not take scriptures seriously, most do not even keep a beard which is mandatory for Muslim, hardly do namaz 5 times a day, or know Arabic, they act as per their inner conscience, interact with non-Muslims and find them nice people and hence much more liberal and human. They are peaceful people, and most follow dominant Islam merely because of threat of leaders. Most Muslim women follow Islam only because they have no other option, or because they know nothing about Islam and other thoughts on Women rights and hence have accepted it as their destiny that they are inferior to men. Thus we believe that majority of Muslims are victims rather than perpetrators of fundamentalism and intolerance.

Question: If that be so, why do you ask Muslims to convert?

Answer:

We ask them to convert because Muslim leaders and clergies have laid such a trap that it is difficult to distinguish a good Muslim from a terrorist. Innocent good Muslims are trapped because of menace of their leaders. So it is better for them to embrace humanity or Vedic Dharma as their religion and live a honest doubt-free life. To give you an example of how it works, one can view the views of Darul-Uloom Deoband, the most influential school of Islam in Asia. Visit http://www.darululoom-deoband.com/english/books/rightsinislam.htm to see rights in Islam. It differentiates between Rights of a Muslim and Rights of a Human Being. So rights of a Muslim are different from rights of a non-Muslim. All the concepts of friendliness and brotherhood are for Muslims alone. And among other rights, it lists: Overlook faults of a Muslim (not non-Muslim), conceal shortcomings of a Muslim (not non-Muslim), Accepte excuses of a Muslim (not non-Muslim), Remove difficulties of a Muslim (not non-Muslim), Fulfill promises of a Muslim (not non-Muslim), Do not speak ill of a Muslim (not non-Muslim)

Further, Surat Aal-Imran Ayat 28 states that Muslims should not make non-Muslims their friends and be cautious of them. Tafseer-e-Jalalayn explains further – If one has to make friendship with non-Muslims due to fear or convenience, one should have hatred and enmity with them in hearts. Allah will show his wrath if you make non-Muslims your friends.

Under such scenario, it becomes difficult to trust a Muslim who claims allegiance to modern Quran.

However we do not emphasize unethical conversion or even ritualistic conversion. We simply demand conversion of minds towards open-mindedness and tolerance.

Question: Are you also not fundamentalist, when you praise Vedic Dharma?

Answer:

While we praise Vedic Dharma, we do so because it is the oldest wisdom of humanity and devoid of any discrimination among humans based on caste, gender, belief etc. It is rational and scientific and even noble prize winning scientists have been amazed at its wisdom. Nonetheless, we do not believe that those who refuse to believe in Vedas shall burn in Hell forever. Vedas state that only allegiance to seeking truth is required. Rest everything is part of process. So there is no discrimination based on whether one believes in Vedas or not. In fact blind belief is something against the Vedas. So in a Vedic society, everyone with differing beliefs and births can live and preach as equals, so far they are peaceful and tolerant.

Question: Why do not you state your views politely? Why are you so harsh in your expressions?

Answer:

1. We differentiate between people and concepts. While we may be harsh on concepts, for people (Muslims) we have same love that we have for non-Muslims. In fact, a couple of Muslim women became our sisters. And unlike Islam, in vedas there is no difference between an adopted or own relative. So while a mother/sister/daughter is Islam means nothing if its not a blood relation, a Vedic disciple can lay his life to maintain dignity of a mother/sister/daughter even if there is not remotest blood relation.

2. We have deliberately avoided even reference to several Ayats and hadiths that are extremely full of hatred or vulgarity. Because this is not a hate-Muslim site. It is a love-humanity site.

3. Had it not been a deep sense of love for our Muslim brothers and sisters, we would not have started this site to receive regular death threats and curses. But we ignore them because we are driven by love for our family than anything else.

Question: Why did you isolate Islam? Why not other religions also that may not be scientific as per you?

Answer:

While we analyze all ideologies with same level of objectivity without discrimination (check our other articles except on Islam), we had to focus more on Islam because it is the only religion that states that only it is true and all other are false and hell-seekers. No other religion is as intolerant of non-believers. Next in series lies the Christianity as in the Bible. But because even Christians do not take Bible so seriously, and one can still live with security in a Christian country after condemning Bible, it is not as serious a problem. Islam is the only religion, where if you speak against its holy book or prophet, you shall be killed in a Muslim country. This intolerance concerns us, especially because it is extremely damaging for women and rational men.

Religions of East are much more tolerant because all believe in Theory of Karma and consider Tolerance to be the first characteristic of Dharma.

Question: What do you want to acheive from these articles?

Answer:

We quote from Introduction of 14th Chapter of Light of Truth by Swami Dayanand Saraswati:

The object aimed at by this criticism is to contribute to the elevation of the human race and enable all men to sift truth from falsehood by giving them some idea of the teachings of various prevalent religions, as this will afford them opportunities for friendly discussions – so useful in helping men to point out their defects and to appreciate their merits.

It is not our purpose to falsely condemn this or any other religion. On the contrary what we aim at is that whatever is true should be recognized as such and whatever is false should be condemned as such, so that no one should be in a position to palm off untruth for truth or hinder the progress of truth. One is, of course, free to accept truth or for the matter of that even refuse to do so after it has been published; compulsion being impossible in such matters. Good men will, as a rule, after they have realized their merits and demerits, imbibe good qualities and reject bad ones and eradicate bigotry and prejudice and wherever found. Who does not know something of the prodigious amount of evil that has been wrought by bigotry? The truth is that it is unworthy of a human being to injure others and throw away his own chance of happiness in this uncertain and transient life.

In case the good reader comes across, in this criticism, anything contrary to facts, it is hoped he will point it out and we shall make the suggested changes if called for, since this criticism is designed to diminish bigotry, obstinacy, jealously, malice, hatred, and (love of ) useless wrangling and not to promote them.

It is our first and foremost duty to avoid injuring others and to further the well-being of each other. We lay this criticism on the Mohammedan religion before all lovers of truth in the hope that they, after having gone carefully through it, accept what appeals to their reason and common sense and discard what is repugnant to them.

Disclaimer:  We believe in "Vasudhaiv Kutumbakam" (entire humanity is my own family). "Love all, hate none" is one of our slogans. Striving for world peace is one of our objectives. For us, entire humanity is one single family without any artificial discrimination on basis of caste, gender, region and religion. By Quran and Hadiths, we do not refer to their original meanings. We only refer to interpretations made by fanatics and terrorists to justify their kill and rape. We highly respect the original Quran, Hadiths and their creators. We also respect Muslim heroes like APJ Abdul Kalam who are our role models. Our fight is against those who misinterpret them and malign Islam by associating it with terrorism. For example, Mughals, ISIS, Al Qaeda, and every other person who justifies sex-slavery, rape of daughter-in-law and other heinous acts. Please read Full Disclaimer.

    GREAT PSYCHOLOGIST CG JUNG HAS EXPOSED JEHOVAH/ALLAH’S TRUE NATURE. According to Jung Jehovah/Allah is non other than ROMAN GOD JUPITER/JOVE, whose Greek counterpart is ZEUS AND INDIAN COUNTERPART IS LORD INDRA. So According to CG JUNG AND MANY OTHER IMMINENT HISTORIANS AND PSYCHOLOGIST ALLAH/JEHOVAH IS LORD INDRA A SMALL VEDIC GOD. “SO VEDA IS THE ONLY TRUE SOURCE” SEE THIS WEBSITE FOR REFERENCE:

      • Dialogues are a part of every civilized society and since every society today is a mosaic of cultures, care needs to be taken not to offend other’s faith, beliefs, customs, etc.; but having said that, questions should definitely be asked about the validity of the beliefs of the past in the present-day context. Blindfolded herd mentality is one of the worst calamaties that can befell humanity. In far as Steve is concerned, he is appears to be staunchly opinionated against a certain faith, but in a democracy he has every right to say or write about anything he believes in. Living in a democracy, we need to be a bit more tolerant towards each other and also be strong enough to be face criticism from any quarter. Appreciated your efforts. Hope and pray that a day comes when in Rabindranath Tagore’s words, “Where the world has not been broken up into fragments by narrow domestic walls.”

      • I am all in favour of decent language debate… that website is full of F****s and B****s , he has not even spared women ( who gave him birth) and went beyond all boundaries…. I am in favour of Satyagni where he has not used a single abusive word…..let him take a decent path of criticising….after all democracy is about freedom of speech and intolerance has to be shown when someone misuses this democratic right …. and intolerance i have exhibited is by going to the law not taking laws in my own hand…

  • @Sameer

    thanks brother for this site, muslims are sick species and we all have to work hard to remove islam from their brains.

  • I RESPECT AGNIVEERJI because he gives everyone equal opportunity to make his point in blog even Pakistanis unlike HYPOCRITE ZAKIR NAIK whose bearded goons will snatch your mike if you try to ask tough questions to him. His bearded goons will snatch your mike or when ZAKIR NAIK cannot answer your question he will give you a pocket Quran and say you will find your answer in this BLAH BLAH. When I tried to ask ZAKIR NAIK why is WINE HARAM IN EARTH AND HALAL IN MUSLIM HEAVEN his bearded goons snatched mike from me and he did not give me the answer.

    • Probably, he did not have one at that point in time. Now, he is going to sit back with his coterie of brainwashers, and try to bring out a twisted reply tailor made to beguile the gullible masses.

  • I WAS A MUSLIM I CONVERTED TO HINDUISM by seeing the horrible video of Islamic Terrorists cutting the head of Daniel Pearl in Bakri Eid. They first cut him in three pieces and then in 10 pieces. I saw this video in YOUTUBE it cast deep impact on me. What were they trying to show by butchering Daniel Pearl where they planning to eat him in Bakri Eid. I do not want to be part of this cannibal culture so I converted to Hinduism and for those who are PROUD OF BEING MUSLIM SHOULD SEE THIS WEBSITEwww.masada2000.org/BetterWorld.html

    • Thats your knowledge, if you see rioters of Gujarat who killed child in the womb after killing the lady where will you go to Christianity.? After you come to know Hitler”s genocide then you will become a jew and then finally atheist? Decide before its too late, means we all have to die and we dont know when.

      • So, what is decision after all, shall everybody turn to islam then?

        As humans, we need to care for humanity coz I believe that religions are made for men and not vice versa. Fundamentalism irrespective of their affiliations need to be condemned and fought against. Whatever happened in Gujarat is condemnable. Likewise, whatever happened in Godhra and in the Kashmir Valley with the pundits also needs to condemned in the same breath. We need to shed narrow parochial outlooks for creating a better and humane society where people are not viewed through the lens of caste, creed, color, sex, religion, region, etc.

      • I dont say that its an individual choice, I was just trying to get his logic,humans are involved in all kind of ill traits so a person would like to turn animal,then a plant which creates less destruction and finally become non living, even natural occurences because of non living stuff create destruction, whom would you blame then, GOD?

        It is example of ignorance and lack of reasoning.

  • Dear Sister,

    Please do not consider anything coming from us to be out of hatred. Its merely an urge to want bliss for my family members – the entire humanity. I hope you shall review everything we wrote with this family spirit and not otherwise. We know Islam does not believe in such brother-sister relations that are not blood or milk related. But Vedas do and hence you shall remain our sister, whose protection of dignity shall remain our utmost duty forever.

    In case you find anything wrong in the articles, do let us know with correct details and we shall be willing to correct or improve. In case you cannot point mistakes but still have a different views, you are welcome. Kindly ignore them as differing views of your own brother. After all as per Quran, what we are doing is already written in Lohe Mahfooz.

    But kindly do not let anything affect the pure emotions of affection between brother and sister.
    May we live like one single family!
    Thanks
    Aditya
    on behalf of Satyagni Team
