how the Islamist's mind work:
Islamist is like an addict in a hardcore drug. The more you tell him about
the truth of the drug 'Islam', the more he will cling to it. In fact, he
cannot live without the drug. But deep inside he knows for sure that he is
under the influence of a powerful drug and what is going on around today's
world is truly inspired by the doctrine of 'true or real Islam'.
is like smoking. Most smokers know the potential danger of smoking yet
they cling to it despite so much warning by the Government and the medical
we should not get disappointed with this. I myself was one of these drug
addicts. I used to think in exactly the same way that these Islamists are
reacting whenever they see the truth. It is not that simple for these
people to give up their faith. In fact, we should never even say that they
should do this. Because this will surely be counter productive. All we do
is just show them the picture. Let them go and deny. But they are
definitely agitated; if not they would not even bother to respond. The
agitation of their mind and their denial is the clearest signal that the
message has gone through although there is denial. This is what we do;
that is, we create some doubt and a little confusion. It will take some
time before the next stage sets in. In this stage they may even turn more
to their religion. This is another sign that he is desperate to make sure
that what he believes is correct. This may continue for some time.
some point during this stage he may suddenly wake up and have a second
look at his irrational belief. This is the time he will slowly stop
practicing his rituals and read more about what we write. This is the time
when we win.
me tell you that I receive plenty of hate mails and even threats to my
life. Almost all of them call me a traitor. All these hate mails prove is
that my message is causing agitation and the Islamists are feeling
insecure. Whenever I receive a hate mail I become quite confident that the
hit the target. I am not bothered even to respond to these hate messages.
Time will take care of everything. We just plant the seed of doubt, that's
all. Leave the rest to nature. It will take care of itself.
me also tell you that I have received quite a few sincere e-mails from
Muslims who told me that they have left Islam after carefully examining
the pros and cons. As I wrote you before that no Muslim will announce
publicly that he has left Islam; therefore, be certain that most Muslims
will seldom tell you that they have left Islam.
we should not at all get disappointed when we receive irrational/hatemails
from the Islamists. It will take a very long time (probably a century)
before we can see any visible and tangible result of our effort. I would
have died by that time. To me, that is fine. I do not expect a billion
Muslim to discard their religion overnight simply by reading a few
articles. This is not going to happen. The path to enlightenment is
kindly note that without the advent of the Internet we could not have even
gotten what we have achieved today. The Internet has changed everything.
You can see that so many websites are now telling the truth about the
'real Islam'. Even a few years ago these were unthinkable for the Muslims.
I myself got most of the truth about Islam from the Internet.
we need some patience. Islam today is the most hated religion in the
world. The word 'Islam and fundamentalism' are associated with terrorism,
genocide, murder, bombing, hate........anything that goes against
humanity. This has caused a great deal of pain, anxiety, panic and
insecurity amongst the Islamists. They know rather well that it is the
Internet and the extraordinary
power of the electronic media that is their enemy. That is why the
Islamists are scanning the entire cyber world to monitor what the world is
thinking about Islam and they are determined to counter the truth with
falsehood and deception even if they have to twist
own holy scriptures for this.
have tried to give you my idea on how to respond to an Islamist. The best
reponse is actually no active response. We just portray the 'real Islam'
and let the Islamist think.
