What a surprise

Reader comment on item: Arabian Sex Tourism
in response to reader comment: Islam is the best religion in the world

Submitted by The Atheist Indian (India), Sep 16, 2011 at 04:41

It is not just Arabs, it is all Muslims. I had the misfortune of being taken out of Anglo-India education and sent to a madrassa during my childhood, by my religious parents who grew increasingly uncomfortable with my logical and valid questions of Islam and Allah. Needless to say, I was naive 10 year old, I actually believed it when my parents said madrassa education would answer my doubts. Alas, it was not to be.

Most of the Mullahs in the madrassa were irrational bigots that found my doubts and questions 'heretic' and pressured me to take it on faith. I was made into some sort of a pariah, abused and insulted by the so called pious Muslims. I also witness the extent of child abuse in madrassas, Mullahs engaging in paedophilia, homosexuality and barbarism of all kinds. This was not a rag-tag madrassa in some rag-tag part of India, but one of the most reputed madrassa in my state of Assam, backed by the state government and media.

I planned and escaped from that prison and when I told my parents what happened in the bastion of islamic education, they simply asked me to 'shut up' and not speak of such shameless things. Apparently, Indian muslims have this trend where the dirt in their community is shoved under the carpet in the garb of 'keeping fitna out of the eyes of infidels'. I realised I had enough of this religion that would rather tolerate child abuse than risk a negative 'infidel' opinion against the faith. It is only after I grew up and read the Quran objectively that I realised the vileness of the so called "religion of peace".
