Zakir Naik says dont judge Islam by Muslims. But what he does to others? Read to know why judging driver is as critical as judging the Car!
Agniveer! You are a liar and hypocrite because
You say Islam allows terrorism but what about Hindu terrorism – Tamil tigers, Naxalites, Maoists, ULFA terrorists who are all Hindus?
You say Islam demeans women because it allows polygamy but what about Hinduism? Dashrath had 3 wives Krishna had 16000 wives?
You say Islam teaches idol (Kaba) worship by bowing, kissing, and circumambulating it but what about many Hindus who do idol worship?
You say Islam teaches Shirk (associating partners with Allah/God) by including Muhammad (SAW) in prayers along with God whereas many Hindus think of Ram and Krishna as divine and worship them?
You say Islam is discriminatory because it assigns Non Arab Muslims the status of slaves/humble servants with lesser rights than Arabs but what about Dalits and Shudras in Hindus? Brahmins have treated them very badly, why don’t you write on Hinduism then?
You say Islam allows Jihad- fighting with non Muslims unless Deen of Allah prevails everywhere but what about Mahabharat? Kaurava and Pandava fought each other and killed thousands, what about Ashoka who killed thousands, then why do you condemn Islam alone?
These are few out of many allegations which Agniveer faces quite often from the Jihadi quarters like Zakir Naik and his Wahabi applauders. These arguments look very promising in first go but when scrutinized closely, only expose the stupidity, lies and deceiving nature of the person(s) using these.
Before we put these Jihadi arguments to the test of logic and reasoning, lets remind a beautiful and popular saying of Zakir Bhai MBBS, which is “Don’t judge car by its driver”.
In this article this line has quite a big role to play!
When the questions related to Islamic terrorism, many sects within Islam, grave worship by Muslims, etc are asked to Zakir Naik, he shouts very confidently- if you want to buy a car, you should look at the Car but Don’t judge car by its driver!
He says this to defend Islam from allegations of terrorism, anarchy, poverty, turmoil, gender discrimination etc.
Here the Car seems to be Islam and the driver to be Muslims. And Zakir Bhai suggests non Muslims to judge Islam by Quran, Hadith and Seerat (biography) of Muhammad instead of the actions of Muslims. So let us make this analogy clear to our readers-
Car = Islam (Quran + Hadith + Seerat)
Driver = Muslims
We declare that Agniveer and Satyagni have never judged the Car (Islam) by its driver (Muslims) but always by the Car itself. All our articles carry references from Quran and Sahih Hadith as made available by Islamic representatives. We never say Islam teaches terrorism, idol worship, Shirk, Slavery, Castiesm, polygamy etc because many Muslims are terrorists, idol worshippers, grave worshippers, racists, and polygamous. Rather we provide proofs from Quran and Sahih Hadith that it’s the Car itself which cant be handled by its drivers being very defective! Wherever we have condemned the drivers and the Car together, it was because those drivers are acclaimed as best of drivers. For example Muhammad- the best driver, then drivers like Muhammad Ghori, Babur, Akbar, Aurangzeb etc who are considered to be Ghazis (best of drivers) and role models by Muslims themselves.
Now its time to help Zakir and his Wahabi masterminds realize the fallacies in their car-driver example. This car analogy ensures few notable things
0. Just like any other Muslim, Zakir Naik is also a driver. Every scholar of Quran who has translated and produced bulky Tafsir (descriptions) is also a driver. Authors of Hadith being humans are again drivers. And above all, Muhammad being a human was also a driver! Now whole of this Car-driver Islamic analogy is based on the assumption that a driver (Muhammad) claimed some day that he has a Car (Quran), which is best! So we see in this case, a driver claimed to possess the best Car and few people of that time accepted his claim! So the very foundation of Islam is based on BLIND BELIEF IN A DRIVER without judging the Car. In this way the prerequisite of not judging a Car by driver put forth by Zakir Naik is not fulfilled even by the first generation of Muslim Ummah (community)
1. As written in point 0, when the translators, narrators of the Quranic verses and Hadith are driver themselves, why then judge Islam based on their works? We have to judge the actual Quran- the Car! Now what options a Non Arab (who does not know Arabic) has for judging this Car without believing in the drivers (translators) of it? Zakir Naik himself depends on the drivers (translators), and thus he actually wants people to do what he himself does not do!
2. Anyone calling him/herself Muslim is considered to be the driver of this Car called Islam! So whatever killing, rape and plunder the Ghazis like Muhammad Ghori, Mahmud of Ghazni, Taimur, Babur, Akbar, Aurangzeb, Azamal Qasab and Osama Bin Laden cause, they continue to be the drivers of the car called Islam!
3. On the other hand, a person, no matter howsoever pious and noble, if does not call him/herself Muslim, has no chance to drive the Islamic Car!
4. Since the Car has been destined to be parked in heaven by its manufacturer (Allah) ; it ensures entry of its driver too into the heaven, no matter how he drove!
5. Those who drive any Car other than Islam, will get their tires punctured by Allah- the manufacturer of Islamic Car and they along with their Car will land in the place called hell
6. Those driving the Islamic Car, if find it inappropriate and want to drive another Car, cannot move out of it because of the deadly lock called “death punishment for apostasy” in his/her Car!
Thus, after pondering over this analogy, one can easily understand that Zakir Naik’s Car is not to be judged! Judging a Car should be something which you can have a test drive with and after that you have options of purchasing or rejecting it. But Naik’s Car model is something that kidnaps you as soon as you board it for a test drive and once you are in, you have no way out before you die or you are ready to die . So Zakir’s call for judging Islamic Car is actually a trap which has an entry but no exit!
Moreover, in case of Islam, it is equally important to judge the Driver (Muslims) in addition to Car (Quran+Hadith) because
1. Allah has given rights to Muslims to judge who is a believer and who is not
2. Allah has appointed Muslims to judge who is an apostate and who is not
3. Allah has ordered Muslims to kill apostates as per Shariyat
4. Muslims have been commanded by their commander in chief aka Allah to fight with sword until Islam prevails over the world [Quran 9:29]
5. Muslims are ordered to slay polytheists and idol worshippers wherever found [Quran 9:5]
Due to the above rights which a Muslim possesses from birth, any Kafir or atheist or theist or an apostate -who could not appreciate my way or the high way type Allah and His Rasul- has all the rights to judge and question the drivers (Muslims) who are supposed to decide his/her life and death.
A Hindu is never allowed to kill apostates or unbelievers in his/her Vedas. Thus while a Hindu must judge Muslims because Muslims claim to be all knowing (judging one’s beliefs as right or wrong and kill or spare accordingly), a Muslim can/should never judge Hindus because Hindus dont claim to be all knowing and absolute in first place!
But anyway, in this article we will talk over the issues raised in the starting one by one and analyze them by assuming the Car analogy as correct! Dear readers will find now that how Zakir Bhai expects everyone to judge his Car by Car itself but himself judges Cars of others by their drivers. We name the Car called Islam as “I” and Vedas as “V”. Let’s begin
a. You say Islam allows terrorism but what about Hindu terrorism- Tamil tigers, Naxalites, Maoists, ULFA terrorists are all Hindus?
1. Great! When it comes to any other religion, Jihadis judge the Car by its driver! Why not give proofs from Vedas that sanction terrorism like we provided from Quran and Hadith here http://agniveer.com/quran-no-compulsion-in-religion/ and http://agniveer.com/islam-practical/ ? Since no one has been able to give the references of terrorism from Vedas but we gave from Quran, Car “V” is better than Car “I”.
2. Has any Jihadi seen a Tamil tiger or a Naxalite or a Maoist or an ULFA terrorist blowing the mosques or temples or beheading others reciting Mantras of Vedas? No. But we see topmost terrorists of the world like Osama, Qasab, Mullah Umar, Maulana Masood Azhar etc reciting Quran and threatening non Muslims of Jihad- holy war sanctioned in Quran! There are many videos available on net which show the Jihadis first reciting verses of Quran and then beheading the hostage Kafirs. This is the difference between a Hindu terrorist and Muslim terrorist that Hindu finds no justification for such cowardly act of killing innocents in his book but Muslim does. And that is why the term Islamic Terrorism is reality but Hindu Terrorism is a hoax.
3. The total killings carried out by so called Hindu Terrorists put together till date are outnumbered by one Jihadi attack on Mumbai. Thus Muslim terrorism is more dangerous than Hindu terrorism.
4. We claim that all Nexalites, Maoists, Tamil tigers, and all Hindus who killed innocents anywhere in the world deserve severe punishments. They will not get bliss of Eeshvar and if any hell exists, they will go to hell. Now let Jihadis and Zakir Naik claim that Qasab, Osama Bin Laden, Taliban, Lashkar e Taiba, Jaish e Muhammad, Al Qaida terrorists will all go to hell! Can Zakir Naik say that or he will keep parroting he does not know Qasab and Osama?
b. You say Islam demeans women because it allows polygamy but what about Hinduism? Dashrath had 3 wives Krishna had 16000 wives? Islam is the only religion which says MARRY ONLY ONE.
1. Hmm again judging the Car by drivers! Where are the references from Vedas which sanction polygamy? Here is the response to the polygamy in Hinduism http://agniveer.com/zakir-naik-on-polygamy/. And here find the rebuttal to Zakir’s arguments in favor of polygamy http://agniveer.com/polygamy-hinduism/ . Since no one has been able to give the references of polygamy from Vedas but we gave from Quran, Car “V” is better than Car “I”.
2. Dashrath was not a good driver of the Car! Story of Shri Krishna marrying 16000 women has been rejected by many scholars and we do not believe in those either. But saga of marriages of Muhammad starting from a 6 year old kid Aisha to 45 years old Amma Khadiza is surely a part of Eeman (faith) for Muslims! Allah’s command of “marry only one” was not applicable to the best driver of the Car (Muhammad)! Seems the best driver was provided with a different Car from others!
3. We claim that Dashrath did wrong. Story of Shri Krishna is wrong. Even if Shri Krishna did this, he did wrong. We will not follow him in this regard. Now let Jihadi brigade state that if Quran says- Marry only one, then Muhammad violated Allah’s commands and thus he did wrong. If Allah revealed special verses for him to marry more than four, then accept that Quran has contradictions and bias.
c. You say Islam teaches idol (Kaba) worship by bowing, kissing, and circumambulating it but what about many Hindus who do idol worship?
1. Idol worship in Islam i.e. bowing to Kaba idol, kissing it, and circumambulating it are practiced as per Quran and Hadith. Please refer http://agniveer.com/iitian-slaps-zakir-naik-35-times-kaba-worship-storms-internet/. However, idol worship is not found anywhere in Vedas. So Car “V” is better than Car “I”.
2. Many Hindus practice idol worship and so as Muslims. Both should think logically and embrace actual Dharma of worshipping true shapeless God.
3. Most of the Muslims worship graves, which is worse than idol worship! So, Muslim friends need to reject two worships viz. idol and grave. But Muslims cant reject idol worship unless they reject Quran and Hadith as shown in point 1.
4. We appeal to all Hindus who do idol worship to think rationally and align their beliefs with that of Vedas which advocate worshipping of One formless Eeshvar. Now let Zakir Naik say that bowing, kissing, circumambulating the Kaba idol are Haram and the verses of Quran and Hadith which sanction these ill practices are wrong. Also he should claim that the grave worshipper Muslims do Shirk and are thus Kafirs.
d. You say Islam teaches Shirk by including Muhammad (SAW) in prayers with God whereas many Hindus think of Ram and Krishna as divine and worship them?
1. Teaching of Shirk in Islam originate from from Quran and Hadith itself. Please refer http://agniveer.com/islam-the-religion-of-tauheed-monotheism/ to know more. However Vedas talk about the worship of One God alone and reject any requirement of believing in agent or messenger of God in addition. Since no one has been able to give the references of Shirk from Vedas but we gave from Quran, Car “V” is better than Car “I”.
2. Muslims as well as Hindus do Shirk, but the roots of Shirk of Muslims are found in Quran and Hadith but that’s not the case with Vedas.
3. We have differences with those friends who consider Ram and Krishna as God. Vedas nowhere claim the incarnation of God as physical body but on contrary call Eeshvar as Akaayam, Avranam, Asnaaviram (shapeless, non physical and beyond the bondage of nerves). Now let Zakir Naik state that the Kalma- Laillah illallah Muhammadur rasulullah is wrong and it should be cut to Laillah illallah only! Let him claim that the verses of Quran which make it obligatory to believe in Muhammad along with God for Eeman (belief) are anti Islamic and thus need to be annulled.
e. You say Islam is discriminatory because it assigns Non Arab Muslims the status of slaves/humble servants with lesser rights than Arabs but what about Dalits and Shudras in Hindus?
1. Inferior status to Non Arab Muslims has been assigned by none other than Quran and Hadith. Please refer http://agniveer.com/i-am-a-non-arab/ for details. But there is no mention of birth based superiority/inferiority of humans in Vedas. Please visit http://agniveer.com/caste-system/ to clarify any misconception in this regard. Since no one has been able to give the references of birth based discrimination among humans from Vedas but we gave from Quran, Car “V” is better than Car “I”.
2. We strongly condemn all those who suppressed any group or community by practicing/preaching such anti Vedic concepts. We declare them anti Vedic and claim them the biggest enemies of Vedas and humanity. We demand severe punishment for all those who preached this non sense in the name of Hinduism. Now we want to ask Zakir Naik and Jihadis- will you do same for Quran and Hadith? Will you condemn Allah, Muhammad and Abu Bakr for assigning you inferior status than Arabs?
f. You say Islam allows Jihad- fighting with non Muslims unless Deen of Allah prevails everywhere but what about Mahabharat? Kaurava and Pandava fought each other and killed thousands, Ashoka killed thousands, then why do you condemn Islam alone?
1. Mahabharat is not claimed to be the last word of God anywhere by any Hindu! It was just a history. Ashoka is never considered as prophet by Hindus. But Quran is claimed to be final word of Allah by Muslims. Jihad- Holy war of Quran is to be waged on people for only fault of theirs’ of being Non Muslims! Quran [9:29] says- Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, [even if they are] of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.
So teachings of Quran which needed to be much more humanitarian than any religious book are proven to be barbaric than most of even history books! And since no one has been able to give the references of killing in the name of faith and belief from Vedas but we gave from Quran, Car “V” is better than Car “I”.
2. Kaurava and Pandava did not fight for imposing their beliefs on others but Muslims do.
3. Countless Jihadi invaders inspired by such teachings of Islam from Arab, Turkey, and other places attacked India and showed the world how it looks when the verses like [9:29] are demonstrated in practice. Unfortunately the invaders who killed, looted, and raped the natives are now hailed as Ghazis by the descendants of those very unfortunate natives i.e. Indian, Pakistani, Bangladeshi, and Afgani Muslims.
4. We claim that Hindus like Duryodhan and Ashoka who shed blood for their petty greed of spreading kingdom are worst of humans. Can now Zakir Naik and his Mujahid condemn the Arab and Mughal Ghazis by saying them anti Islamic, if they did not follow Islam?
In the end, we conclude that all the allegations made on us are actually to be put on the alligators themselves! Jihadi fanatics condemn Hindus for their illogical and immoral practices but when condemned for theirs, they simply run away saying don’t judge car by its driver! Now we have shown that if Islam is to be judged by the Car, Vedic Dharma too should be judged by the Car and in that case, Vedic Dharma is the best. We showed that even if the Cars are judged by the drivers, still Vedas remain invincible. Days are gone when frauds like Zakir Naik could convert non Muslims by comparing drivers of others with his Car. Now we have seen that Zakir’s Car is as defective as his drivers and his Drivers deserve as much scrutiny as his Car!
So we appeal to everyone- especially to our Muslim Brothers and Sisters to leave the defective Car of Zakir and enjoy driving the fastest and smoothest Car- the Car of your ancestors- The Vedas!
