An article I read

Reader comment on item: Something Rotten in Denmark?
in response to reader comment: The Two-Edged Sword of Islam

Submitted by Danish/American (United States), Mar 2, 2006 at 08:58

Here is something I found today. It is an excerpt from a news article back in 2001. Read this and tell me how much intelligence muslims have. The man, a doctor, professor AND A MUSLIM stated a simle FACT that ANY MORON could have figured out. If muhammed was 40 when he 'became a prophet' it only stands to reason his parents WERE NOT born muslim. It is impossible. Just read this and decide for yourselves..good reason to put a man to death eh?

Dr. Shaikh was arrested on October 4, 2000, by Islamabad police for allegedly saying that the Prophet Mohammed did not become Muslim until the age of 40 (which was when he received his first revelation) and that his parents were non-Muslims (as they died before Islam was proposed by the Prophet). According to the report in the NYT, "The Movement for the Finality of the Prophet, well known for pursuing blasphemers, filed a criminal complaint and sent a mob to the college and the local police station, threatening to set them on fire."

Hundreds of people have been convicted of blasphemy in Pakistan, among them moderate Muslims, Christians and members of other religious minorities. The law they are prosecuted under is extremely ill defined. Frequently, people don't know beforehand that they are committing an offence. While we do not know if Dr. Shaikh will face execution in the short time allowed for his appeal or whether he will languish in jail.

FYI..he was sentenced to DEATH.

Civilized and peaceful?? I say NO!
