Honest Confession from Mohammad ( Ex-Muslim)

Reader comment on item: [Pew Poll on] How Muslims Think

Submitted by Aman (India), Jul 8, 2006 at 14:15

I am an ex-muslim, fed up and upset about the Islamic ideologies taught to me through Quran and Hadis.

Throughout history, fundamentalist Islam tried to establish an ontological form of Islam through Jihadi terrorism.

Ideas expressed in the Koran & Hadis provide all the justification necessary for Jihadis to carry out deadly terrorist activities: "Kill the infidels wherever you find them. Force them to accept Islam. Fight them till they accept Islam"

Jihadi terrorists are against freethinking, liberty, pluralism, secularism, and co-existence. They are defensive, capricious, and conditioned by their outdated irrational fanatic religious dogma.

For many centuries, Jihadis (religious warriors) have resorted to mass murder, oppression, intimidation, torture, terrorism, assassination and forced religious conversion all in the name of fundamentalist belief system. And so it is today. Only the threat, the methods, and the goals differ.

Now, Jihadi terrorism is one of the greatest threats to the existing free world order, whether it is US or Europe or India. Modern day jihadi terrorist groups as Hamas, Islamic Jihad, Hizbullah, Lasker-E-Tobia, Al Bader, Taliban, Al Qaeda, Tehreek-E-Jihad, Hizbul Mujahidden virtually ensures that Jihadi terrorism will be with us for many years to come.

Jihadi terrorist attacks in the U.S, Israel, India and Europe have proven jihadi's proclivity for terrorist destruction. Jihadi terrorism in Israel and India poses high life-risk to Hindus, Jews and Christians and continues to claim thousands of innocent lives each year. All over the world, Jihadi terrorism is a serious threat to peace, security, liberty and democracy. No democratic country in the world is immune from the deleterious effects of this heinous crime. Jihadi ideology in its most extreme form is fraught with dangerous consequences for the entire world. Its committed, hard-core adherents, as distinct from a larger body of the more traditional Muslims are thought to account for some 20 to 25 of the population. In recent days,they have acquired an influence, disproportionate to their numbers thanks to monetory (using Petro Dollars) and moral support from Islamic Governments in Middle east, Saudi in particular. Everyone has witnessed what happened after Mohammed's cartoons were published in Europe.

It is fundamentalism of a very special ethnocentric and dangerous form, with beliefs and practices that are more extremist.

To eradicate Jihadi terrorism, we need a reformulation or, more ambitiously, a fundamental redefinition of the assumption and practices that guide our policies.

Our combat strategy should focus on the Jihadi organization (i.e., the relationship between Jihadi groups and their external supporters) and their internal structure, goals and values. The act of terrorism should be viewed as a collective criminal act.

People should arise and force our governments to be very strict in handlings issues like immigration from Muslim world and all the islamic organisations and madarassa's should be closely monitored. If necessary, they should be shut-down mercilessly.

Severe punishment is the only key and there should be no tolerance whatsoever to terrorist backed ideologies.

Our boldness, assertiveness and confrontation will evoke changes in the direction of our shared norms, values and modern civilization.

The 17th book of ahAdIs is the "Book of Religious Wars and Expeditions" (KitAb al-JihAd Wa'l-Siyar).

For those who think that Islam preaches only Peace, those who maintain that Jihad takes place wherever poor muslims are oppressed, those sympathisers, pseudo-secularists who give solution that results in generous granting of more rights, priveleges to minority, please have a look at the following statements given in aHadis (Supporing documents of Holy Quran in the form of Words and actions of Prophet Mohammed)(ahAdIs Number is given in brackets):

Muhammad told those whom he made chiefs of his raiding parties: "Fight in the name of Allah and in the way of Allah. Fight against those who disbelieve in Allah. Make a holy war; do not embezzle the spoils." He also told them to offer their enemies three options or courses of action: "Invite them to accept Islam; if they respond to you, accept it from them. If they refuse to accept Islam, demand from them the JizyA. . . . . If they refuse to pay the tax, seek Allah's help and fight and kill them" (4294).

In a book on government containing 358 ahAdIs, 92 are on jihAd and mujAhids (crusaders) and martyrs. This is understandable, for jihAd is central to Islam and mujAhids are its Army of Liberation. Without jihAd, there is no Islam. JihAd is a religious duty of a Muslim state. All lands not belonging to the territory of Islam (dAr al-islAm) must be conquered by the Muslims, and are therefore called the "territory of war" (dAr al-harb).
"Allah has undertaken to look after the affairs of one who goes out to fight in His way believing in Him and affirming the truth of His Apostles. He is committed to His care and He will either admit him to Paradise or bring him back to his home with a reward or booty" (4626). If he dies in the Way of Allah, his body will not decay. "Every wound received by a Muslim in the Way of Allah will appear on the Day of Judgment in the same condition as it was when it was inflicted. . . . And the colour [of its discharge] will be the colour of blood, but its smell would be smell of musk" (4630)

"Think not of those who are slain in Allah's way as dead." In fact, "the souls of the martyrs live in the bodies of green birds who have their nests in chandeliers hung from the throne of the Almighty. They eat the fruits of Paradise from wherever they like." They have no other desire except to be reborn so that they can be "slain in Thy [Allah's] way once again" (4651). Muhammad had the same desire for himself. "I love to fight in the way of Allah and be killed, to fight and again be killed and to fight and again be killed" (4626).

The Prophet said: "Whoever cheerfully accepts Allah as his Lord, Islam as his religion and Muhammad as his Apostle is necessarily entitled to enter Paradise . . . [yet] there is another act which elevates the position of a man in Paradise to a grade one hundred [higher], and the elevation between one grade and the other is equal to the height of the heaven from the earth. . . . What is that act? . . . JihAd in the way of Allah! JihAd in the way of Allah" (4645).

Please think and understand.

Note: My aim is not spread hatred against any religious groups. I have only mentioned the actual texts to make all understand the truth. For the non-believer (Hindus, Christian, Jews, etc), this may look puzzling but for the true believers, each and every word has been taken as word of 'Allah'(God).

I advise Non Muslims to read Quran , Hadees ,Mohammad Autobiography and 1400 year long history of Militant Islam , you will realise the truth. If only one Osama Bin Laden have taken thousands of innocent lives , Just think about the Millions of Muslim kids being brainwashed in thousands of Islamic Seminaries around the world. After 10 years we will see whole generation of Suicide Bombers.
