Our dear Md Shafiq must be either unaware, or he was hoping that we don't know of the racism of the Arabs against Indian Muslims like him or he

Dr Pipes,

I find it bizarre when Indian Muslims the likes of our dear Md Shafiq who has lived in Saudi Arabia pretend that the Arabs are not racist when in fact an Arab would hire another Muslim Arab or even a Christian Arab or a European before he would hire an Indian or a Pakistani Muslim

The vile and terrorist Ibn Taymiyya wrote:

ان جنس العرب افضل من جنس العجم عبرانيهم وسيريانهم رومهم وفرسهم وغيرهم


This can be rendered as: Truly the race of the Arabs is better than the race of the non Arabs (the literal meaning of the word Ajam is: Iranians but it also means non Arabs) the Jews, the Syriacs, the Romans (read this as the Greeks) and the Iranians and others.

Despicable racism against non Arabs

Enter Tariq el Mehyas described as "UAE Media Personality" and in the video below he spews vile hate directed against Indians and Pakistanis and he denigrates Indians and Pakistanis and he would rather see an Egyptian or a Sudanese hired than an Indian or a Pakistani being hired.


I urge the readers to check the video and they will be able to read the English subtitles.

So my question to our dear Md Shafiq: Why would Indian and Pakistani Muslims accept this racism?
