Dear Dr Pipes,

The guiding principle here is that the non-Muslim world should not judge Islam and Muslims by Islamic standards. We should judge them by commonly shared standards. When common human standards are violated by Muslims, we must speak. I came to know about 'The Constitutional Law Center for Muslims in America' while reading about our dear ISIS bride Hoda Muthana. Hoda Muthana almost like her UK sister Shamima Begum, abandoned the USA and joined ISIS. In about three or four years that she was in the bazm-e-Islam (Islamic gathering) she was widowed twice and she married thrice. But she did not realize that she was doing anything wrong until ISIS lost the war. Now she wants to come back to the USA. But like all good presidents, President Trump wants to protect his country and hold the bride accountable for her actions. The matter is subjudice and the US and her president is being sued by Muthana's father so she can be back to the US as an honorable US citizen. This is just the introduction. My main point follows next.

Law suits are expensive and draining. Who is assisting our dear daddy in this lawsuit? It is none other than The Constitutional Law Center for Muslims in America. You see the name of this organization has all right words. It uses the word 'law'. It also use the word 'America'. No Islamic country has an equitable constitution the name of this organization uses the word 'constitutional'. All the right words but all deception! I wonder why Muslims and only Muslims need a Constitutional Law Center in America. Where is the Constitutional Law center for the Christians? Hindus? Buddists? Jews? pagans? Atheists? And if such centers do exist, why don't they ever have to sue the USA to defend the rights of traitors and terrorists? How come? Why are we, the non-Muslim people, never discriminated so much that we have to stand up to defend even the traitors.

Now comes the issue of judging Muslims by normal standards: No Hindu organization rose to defend Rajat Gupta when he deceived Goldman Sacks. No Jewish center of constitution tried to defend Bernie Madoff when he fleeced his investors. Then, dear Muslims, why do you have to defend the traitors? Why? Do not have to build Constitutional Law Centers for Muslims. Only stop defending the traitors just because they are Muslims. Then no one will notice you and you will blend in the crowd.

What is wrong is wrong whether it is Muslim or not. And what is right is right irrespective. Why is it so difficult to understand.
