in response to reader comment: brohi, an impossible task

Submitted by brohi (Pakistan), Apr 1, 2008 at 10:57

Hi Infidel ,

You say : "I completely agree with your promotion of co-existence with one exception: convince Muslims that they are not entitled to rule the world; have them stop murders, assasinations, violence and wars against non-Islamic people and countries. Should you accomplish this impossible task, we will join you in "peaceful co-existence".

I am already on this task , I think ……I am not addressing my observations and clarifications to the Christian readers or Jew readers only….My addressees are all who read it, irrespective of their religious background ! that includes Muslims as well ! I am affraid people are not following my submissions properly! Perhapes they just read my Nick and My Country Name and start commenting on me and Islam or my country!

Of course no one is entitled to rule the world; to murder innocent and do violence and wars against any human being or any country. But Muslim and Islam is the victim here. Trust me its USA and European governments, which not all believe in this theory/model but practically go all-out for it. Look at their history and their invasions. If you have been following my earlier discussion/input on this forum, you would know it with proofs. Islam has never divided World into East and West , Russian Block and American Block , Capitalism and Socialism, and sort of Friends and Foe , i.e., "Either you are with us or against us" if you are not with us that automatically and by-default means you are against us (the Bush Administration) , and you are our ( this "our" is too broad term for Bush Administration ..it includes religion, scientific theories, geographical boundaries so on so forth ) then we will bomb you and remove your traces from the Earth! Because we declared you that you are against "us" L

To me it should not be like this, world is beautiful, all religions preach peace, love and co-existence, if I don't like Bush , I don't like Qaeda and so is the case with all terrorists. No matter they belong to any religion. Hating West's policies do not mean I hate Christianity, hating Israel's policies do not mean I hate Jews; hating Indian policies do not mean I hate Hindus.

Hating government policies do not mean I hate countries and their people. (Let me put it this way; I have great respect for Vatican City ( its a holy city), I have great respect for all religious places , they all are holy places.) I hate and denounce terrorism and al-qaeda also but this does not mean I should hate all Muslims and Islam. Same logic should be adopted by all sensible people I guess. However, overhere on this forum every one is struggling to tag Islam and all Muslim with terrorism and violence , which is a wrong concept – (why should a rude and confused group of people label me or any other Muslim against his wishes)- Muslim are biggest religious population in the World (this what Vatican's Holy Sea says) , they don't deserve this treatment.

Readers instead of doing the unending struggle for tagging people with the standards they fix , should come forward and do the real job (to denounce crimes and terrorism in all forms) and utilise their time to find out what is common among all the humans and all societies and among all cultures and work for PEACEFUL CO-EXISTENCE.

Let me explain to you something , all Muslims are not terrorists, all Muslims do not believe in killing innocent people, all Muslims do not support attacks on West, all Muslims do not tell lies and commit robbery and rapes but they do believe that the Quarn is the true and last word (Book) of God/Allah and Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) is last and true Messenger of God.

Quran is full of instances where you will find, it denounces; hatred, disrespect, robbery , killing , lie , and all crimes against humanity and society and ordains, peace , tranquillity , serenity ,harmony, reconciliation

And make yourself submissively gentle to them with compassion, and say: O my Lord! have compassion on them, as they brought me up (when I was) little. (Verse # 24) Surely the squanderers are the fellows of the Shaitans and the Shaitan is ever ungrateful to his Lord. (Verse # 27) And do not kill any one whom Allah has forbidden, except for a just cause, and whoever is slain unjustly, We have indeed given to his heir authority, so let him not exceed the just limits in slaying; surely he is aided. (Verse # 33) And draw not near to the property of the orphan except in a goodly way till he attains his maturity and fulfill the promise; surely (every) promise shall be questioned about. (34) And do not go about in the land exultingly, for you cannot cut through the earth nor reach the mountains in height. (Verse # 37) All this-- the evil of it-- is hateful in the sight of your Lord. (Verse # 38) ( Al-Isra, Chapter #17 )

Allah does not love the public utterance of hurtful speech unless (it be) by one to whom injustice has been done; and Allah is Hearing, Knowing.

If you do good openly or do it in secret or pardon an evil then surely Allah is Pardoning, Powerful.(An-Nisa, Chapter #4, Verse #148)

And do not turn your face away from people in contempt, nor go about in the land exulting overmuch; surely Allah does not love any self-conceited boaster

Be modest in thy bearing and subdue thy voice. Lo! the harshest of all voices is the voice (braying ) of the asses. (Luqman, Chapter #31, Verse # 18, 19)

For this reason did We prescribe to the children of Israel that whoever slays a soul, unless it be for manslaughter or for mischief in the land, it is as though he slew all men; and whoever keeps it alive, it is as though he kept alive all men; and certainly Our messengers came to them with clear arguments, but even after that many of them certainly act extravagantly in the land. (Al-Maeda, Chapter #5, Verse #3)

If you will stretch forth your hand towards me to slay me, I am not one to stretch forth my hand towards you to slay you surely I fear Allah, the Lord of the worlds : Surely I wish that you should bear the sin committed against me and your own sin, and so you would be of the inmates of the fire, and this is the recompense of the unjust.(Al-Maeda, Chapter #5, Verse #28, 29)

O Prophet! when believing women come to you giving you a pledge that they will not associate aught with Allah, and will not steal, and will not commit fornication, and will not kill their children, and will not bring a calumny which they have forged of themselves, and will not disobey you in what is good, accept their pledge, and ask forgiveness for them from Allah; surely Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.(Al-Mumtahina, Chapter #60, Verse #12)

They shall not hear therein any vain words nor lying.(An-Naba, Chapter #78, Verse #35)

Have you considered if he gives the lie to the truth and turns (his) back?

Does he not know that Allah does see? Nay! if he desist not, We would certainly smite his forehead, A lying, sinful forehead.(Al-Alaq, Chapter #96, Verse #13, 14,15,16
