Okalhoma say no Shariah

Reader comment on item: Oklahomans Say No to Sharia

Submitted by Sufi imdad Ali Soomro (Pakistan), Feb 7, 2011 at 00:41

Why West and its allies are so afraid from Shariah. Shallow knowledge, Western media, Zionists lobby and some conservative monks of Christianity are propagating that Islam is not a practical religion. In fact, Islam is most acceptable and most balance religion in the world. It is also an admitted fact that, it is widely misunderstood, distorted and discouraged religion in the West. Islam never encourages Muslims to dominate over non Muslims and nor men have supremacy or dominance over men. This may be shallow and conservative approach of Muslims narrow minded scholars but in reality Islam believes in Equality and Rationality.

In fact, Islam is a symbol of expression of freedom. Charter of Madina, Jews and Muslims made an extensive agreement to live side by side and protect their interests. Neither Holy prophet nor Pious Caliph ever issued any decree to invade non- Muslims state on the ground of Religion. Such states were at liberty to follow their rules and regulations. Even Islam, if they religious tax, as others pay Zakat, it is a responsibility of state to protect their rights and privileges.

By passing laws to block Shariah laws is against the essence and spirit of democracy. It is real time to engage with Muslims to find out solutions of common problems. Stakeholders who are interested to malign Islam may be temporary triumph but they will sustain this success because anger and frustration will create further mistrust and confusion, which is not in the favor of world community. Islam is a reality and this reality should be accepted, otherwise, world will be divided on the basis of religion ideology.
