Respected Hameed

Many thanks for your reply. I can understand that you have an emotional binding to islam. It is always difficult - also for me - to criticise something when one knows that many people have great love for it. But we are living in the 21st century and I wish that humans beings stop adoring things of past and look to the real results of what they love or want to love. Islam's results are mean and low-valued. There are good humans among muslims, but not enough or strong enough to determine the results of islam.

Islam is carried forward by the islamofascists - may be you detest them too - but that makes no difference to them. The kuran, in its core spirit, sides with the islamo-fascists. I don't think any muslim can change that. Dr Pipes thinks that it is possible but I don't think so. Islam is 1400 years old - I am far younger. Hence I (must) judge islam on the basis of what it has achieved in this long time.

1) Islam claims to be the final perfect revelation of the one and only god, 2) Islam is younger than judaism and christianity and hence had the possbility of learning from their mistakes and achievements, 3) No ideology has as much resources today as has islam, 4) Muslim do not read criticism of islam by others. They are scared to do so.

And yet islam's performance is bad and getting worse and worse. Puting the blame on ordinary muslims or non-muslim conspiracies will not do anymore because of the 4 reasons cited above.

I would love to read your criticism of hindu religions (note the plural). Dialogue does not mean mutual flattery. It is dishonest to say islam or muslims do not criticise or attack other religions. They do - I know what pakistani muslims learn about hindus and hinduism. I often get quite ugly emails from them (my criticism of islam is far more decent in comparison to that) and I do not take that as a personal insult but thank them for their criticism.

Please stop this foolishness of "I flatter you and you flatter me". We all need strong honest criticism.

Islam acts according to the saying "call someone a dog and shoot him". Call someone atheist, infidel, apostate, unchaste woman, adultress amd kill him. Thus islam has succeeded in maintaining itself. The treatment that islam gave and intends to give to murtads (apostates) proves islam's fascism.

Anyone who refuses to allow or accept criticism becomes a nuisance - and so has islam become a nuisance. What muslims need is a strong clear well-heard and well-protected anti-islamic voice amidst them. Try to establishit in your UAE. Then in Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Iran, Egypt etc. also.

Good human samong muslims merely function as camouflage for islam's totalitarianism and fascism and arab-centred imperialism.

Encyclopedia of Islam say kafir = one who conceals. Look up yourself.

To understand islam means to realise that kuran contains contradictions, inconsistencies, ambiguities and all that can be deadly. Kuran also contains mistakes and idiocies and that keeps muslims in a state of idiocy or obscurantism too.

Be a person of the 21st century and let the 7th century remain in the past. I do not wish to insult the humans of the 21st century by making them mental slaves (=muslims) of the 7th century.

I study islam with an open critical mind and not with the mind of a muslim (mental slave of a 7th century arabic god concept).
