Let us accelerate Islam's collapse under the weight of its own contradiction.

Reader comment on item: The Revolt in Iran Lacks Leadership
in response to reader comment: Muslims must understand that no land is inherently Islamic

Dear Readers: Due to the sustained pressure on Muslims and Islam on social and other modern media, even Islam is being forced to say and do the right things. Memri.Org reported that the Arab media criticized the Talibani Islamist's decision to ban university education for women (Ref1). When Muslims interact with non-Muslims in societies where they do not have overwhelming majority (India, Israel, France, England, Nigeria, USA etc), they stubbornly defend Islamic regressive values. But truth and logic is primary to humans. Due to our repeatedly telling Muslims how wrong they are, they are being forced to do the right things in societies where they are in majority (such as in the Arab nations and Iran). The Arab media's criticism of the Taliban falls is an example.

Islamic world is living under two major contradictions. First contradiction occurs when Islam defends its backward and regressive values. For example, on the one hand, Islam is not willing to admit that allowing a man to marry multiple women was and is wrong. On the other, it is forced to admit that it is not right to prevent women from getting university education. Now how would a Muslim man - educated or otherwise - manage 4 university educated women as wives! Therein lies the contradiction. Islamic regressive practices will die under the pressure of what is right and logical. The usual Islamic drivel to defend regressive Islamic laws as "God's instruction for all people for all times" will fall flat on its face.

The other Islamic contradiction is just as unsustainable. Due to their design and desire to grab more land for Islam, Muslims defend Islamic practices as inevitable in Muslim-minority countries. Almost simultaneously, these same practices get challenged in the Muslim-majority places. A glaring example happened in India recently when protests in favor of the Hijab in India coincided with the protest by Iranian women against the headcoverings. One famous Islamic lier in India (Asauddin Owaisi) was confronted in the media about this contradiction. The poor guy had to say that a woman's right to wear the Hijab was granted by the kuffar constitution of India! So much for the divinity of Islamic laws. They are defenceless in Dar-al-Islam but are defended in Dar-al-Harb using infidel constitutions! House of war is better for Muslims than house of Islam. Go figure!

Islam's collapse under the weight of its contradictions is inevitable. We just have to trust the ancient Sanskrit saying 'Satyamev Jayate' (the Truth alone wins) and continue the relentless and sustained pressure on Islam.

Capture them, besiege them, sit in wait for them at every intellectual forum, dear Non-Muslims, and kill the Islamic contradictions and hypocrisy where ever you find them. So I edit and paraphrase the Quranic verse of sword (q9:5) for the good of humanity.
