Untolerence of Islam exposed

Reader comment on item: Swiss Minarets and European Islam

Submitted by Vijay Tiwari (India), Dec 9, 2009 at 14:00

It is a big question that only possible ban on the construction of minarets (not mosques) in Switzerland has been created such a big issue to oppose by whole Muslim community either by Islamic fundamentalists or by the liberals. They criticised the ban on the basis of individual's religious and human rights. What a surprise! Are any religious or human rights of people of the other religions has been ever respected in Islamic contries. Instead people or criminals of the other religions are also tried by the Sharia Law in the Islamic contries. Other communities are not freely allowed to follow their religious rituals.

No sound protest against such voilation of human/religious rights has been ever seen by so called Muslim liberals. These so call liberals are actually responsible for not prohibiting the infectious radical Islam. The fast popularity of Wahabi stream within Islam is a perfect example. Every educated and liberal muslim knows about DAR-UL-ISLAM and DAR-UL-HARB which is a principle teaches of Wahabi thought and it is very dangerous for peaceful co-existence of different religions in the world. But liberal muslims has not ever criticised it except few people like Salman Rushdie or Tasleema Nasreen who also get issued with Fatwa. But such Fatwa will not work against any mass movement. Will so called muslim liberals dares to do so. Or they are just mute supportors of their radical brothers.

Actually every religion is having liberal and radical elements but liberals has successfully opposed the radicals till now except in Islam. It is obvious that new trends in Europian countries shows the reaction against double standards of Islamic contries.
