The version of Islam today, as preached by likes of Zakir Naik, Osama Bin Laden, Talibanis, Saudi Mullahs etc are the greatest threat for humanity today. Due to this the Islam of liberals like Hassan Nisar and Dr Pervez Hoodbhoy remains hidden from limelight.
A large number of articles on the site expose the fraudulent claims of witchdoctors of neo-Wahabi Islam like Zakir Naik and showcase why it is utter foolishness to regard only Quran as final word of Allah and all the rest of the books on earth as redundant for seeking Him. We have explored fallacies and contradictions in existing translations of Quran, status of women in fanatic Islam, extremism and its cause in Islam and host of other topics. The impact has been tremendous and we have now a huge number of rational Muslims seeking ways to wiggle out of clutches of fanatic neo-Wahabi Islam. Many have agreed to believe in Rebirth and Theory of Karma. Others admit that all the Sahih Hadiths (True Sayings of Muhammad) are not true, unlike claims of the clerics that those who refuse to believe in Sahih Hadiths would go to Hell.
Let us assume for a moment that scholars and major schools of Islam like Zakir Naik, Darul Uloom, Barelvi, Qadiyani etc represent true Islam in their own rights. We would also assume that they know more about Islam than Agniveer or anyone else questioning Islam. So if these prominent ‘experts’ and representatives of Islam can issue the following verdicts and their stands on these topics very clearly in most unambiguous terms, there would be no reason for anyone to consider Islam to be a threat.
The verdicts we demand from these ‘experts’ are most reasonable and rational and have nothing offensive about it. It is the absence of clarity on following issues that causes all rational minds to be scared of Islamic terrorism and doubt even innocent fellow Muslims.
So Islam will not be perceived as a threat if, the clerics and experts state that:
1. Thus, if there is a benevolent non-Muslim who refuses to believe in Quran, despite being given an invitation to embrace Islam, because he or she did not find Quran convincing, or because he or she does know Arabic, or a host of other reasons, it does not mean he or she is disqualified from entering into Heaven and must burn in Hell forever.
For example, the great saints, freedom fighters, soldiers and social workers who lived a pious life, knew about Quran, but remained non-Muslim because Quran did not appeal to them, would not go to Hell. (Refer following video by Islamic terrorist Zakir Naik where he gives a most stupid logic that can impress only psychopaths):
This is very critical, because there can be no trust on those who eventually dream of us (non-Muslims) burning in Hell forever. There can be no greater recipe for hatred than this that we are condemned to Hell forever! The Islamic clerics must address this issue very clearly to cleanse Islam of allegations of fanaticism and hatred for non-Muslims.
Just imagine! Major Unikrishnan laid his life fighting Pakistani terrorists and safeguarding dignity of nation. But he would go to Hell because he did not have Imaan on Quran, Judgment Night, Angels, Muhammad and other fairy tales. But Ajmal Kasab et al who spread so much of nuisance may have virgins in Heaven merely because he surrendered everything to will of Allah and did Jihad – the greatest worship of Allah!
What more, even if a Hindu dies saving dignity of his Muslim sister, still he will go to Hell! What can be bigger insult of Allah and revered Prophet?
2. It is not necessary that a criminal would go to Heaven simply because he surrenders to Quran and Islam and says a ‘sorry’!. So all those terrorists who kill, rape or loot in name of Islam would go to Hell and should be openly condemned by Muslims regardless of their religion. (Refer Islamic Jehad and following video: )
3. A woman is not bereft of intelligence or half-intelligent compared to men as claimed in several verses of Quran/ Hadiths. Allah allows women the same social, legal and political opportunities in life that He endows to men. (Refer entire series on Women in Islam )
4. The concept of Jazia tax on non-Muslims is disgusting. Social, political and criminal regulations should be same for everyone regardless of religion.
5. The English translations of Quran by likes of Yusuf Ali, Pickthall, Dawood; Tafseers of Sahih International, Jalalyn; Sahih Bukhari, Sahih Muslim as published by Islamic publishers and websites suffer from discrepancies and DO NOT correctly represent Islam.
Because these are the only translations which are used for questioning Islam. The Muslim debaters would refuse to admit that these translations are wrong (because Islam forbids them to condemn other Muslims) but yet try to allege that anti-Islamic material is used to demean Islam!
If there is anything objectionable in sources cited by those questioning Islam, the ‘experts’ should clearly state that they reject the authenticity of the sources even if it is an Islamic publication.
6. The Sahih (True) Hadiths (sayings of Muhammad) which talk of rape of war victims, or killing children and other disgusting things (refer Zakir Naik claims Islam – The ONLY Practical Religion of World! and Practical Islam – Science of Hygiene ) are wrong and NOT part of Islam.
In general, any verse that insults the legendary Prophet Muhammas (PBUH) even slightly should be outrightly rejected, be it in Quran translations or Hadiths or any other text.
7. A Muslim who could not find Islam addressing his questions and converts to another religion does not require to be killed for apostasy as per Islamic laws, even if he propagates his new religion. Those who KILL apostates or justify their killing in Islamic state are greatest criminals. (Refer Zakir Naik – the mentor of terrorists)
8. All those Muslim rulers like Babur who admit in their own biography of indulging into pedophilia, homosexuality, cutting thousands of head, narcotics and keeping harem of women are not actually Muslims but disgrace in name of Islam. (Refer Babri and Babur )
9. All those clerics, organizations and countries that call for constant war against non-Muslims are against Islam and criminals. For example refer to following fatwa issued from Saudi Arabia:
10. Non-Muslims should have the same rights to propagate their beliefs in Islamic countries, (so far the beliefs are not criminal, immoral and violent) as Muslims have the right to propagate Islam in non-Islamic countries. But if Muslims believe that it is against Islam to allow preaching of any other religion in Islamic countries, then they should also stop propagating Islam in other countries.
There should be perfect equality. And those fanatics who justify only one-sided propagation should be termed anti-Islamic on this specific issue. (Refer Answering Zakir Naik – Quran says there is no compulsion in religion)
We had already given another Test of secularism earlier but it seems bit too far-fetched today for the fanatic forces. However the current set of clarifications would require only lip service. We know there is a concept of Taqiah in Islam that is implied to justify every crooked act with enemies. But we are even willing to give benefit of doubt to these eminent representatives of Islam and assume that they will not indulge in such practices which were not allowed as per original message of Muhammad.
Whenever someone makes a cartoon of Muhammad or appeals for burning Quran, it hurts us a lot. We strongly oppose such moves to hurt sentiments of millions of our Muslim brothers and sisters. Disagreement should never imply hatred.
But the only way to solve this issue would be by offering the above-said clarifications publicly and creating an environment of mutual trust and dignity. Otherwise innocent Muslims would continue to live in humility and rest of the non-Muslims would continue to showcase their hatred against fanaticism by denigrating legends like Muhammad and Quran. And this hatred will continue to increase giving rise to more and more terrorists like Osama Bin Laden and Ajmal Kasab. And taking benefit of the market opportunity and petro-dollars in hands of fanatic forces, dogmatic intolerant fraud preachers like Zakir Naik will open more of shops to offer ‘peace’ by justifying killing of apostates and Hell for rest of us.
We request visitors on the site to help circulate this message and use your influence to extract public statements from influential representatives of Islam on these most vital issues. In absence of same, our tirade against fanatic Islam would continue.
Because let it be known that Prophet Muhammad was one of the greatest legends ever born in history. Any insult to him or his legacy is an insult to entire humanity. Agniveer cannot tolerate it.
