Converting Muslims out of Islam

Reader comment on item: Europeans Fleeing Eurabia
in response to reader comment: Convincing Muslims of a hard truth

Submitted by A very concerned reader (Australia), Apr 26, 2021 at 17:14

Dear Dr Pipes,

Your reader Prashant has spotted on several things in his comment that I would like to address properly.

I don't have the time to do it right now, but I will throughout the day, but for now, I just wanted to say that yes, we should try to convert Muslims out if Islam without the need of entering into what other religions say. We don't need to enter either into who holds the truth and who doesn't. We need to teach them what's wrong in their religion, starting from the lack of tolerance and the warlike nature of their leader to the lack of credibility of their holy book which is not even prone to be translated properly and without ambiguity.

We should teach them how to live in democracy and why Islam breaches with this concept, because indeed, both cannot coexist in the same environment as long as Shari'ah is exercised.

Problem is how to do that when their ideology is so ingrained from very early years. Any human being who reads, for example, Allah's barbarian words in regards to divorcing disobedient wives and rewarding the believers with better and more obedient wives can discern that something must be wrong in this religion. And this is just an example of the atrocities against human rights that one can find in the Qur'an that we have recently discussed here.

This makes me wonder that, if for us is so easy to understand this, why is not for them? The response lies in their upbringing, of course, previously mentioned. So, how could we overcome this barrier?

I will continue this post soon.

Thank you, Prashant, again, for showing your sensitivity in regards to this complex topic.
