Dear Mr Ali sina,
my Greetings to you,i happened to go through your entire website and found it
quite interesting and thought provoking.but please forgive me for the length of
introduce myself,i'am from india and i was born a Hindu (kafir and i'am proud of
being one) but i'am certainly not religious by any stretch of imagination.
since my days in school i had observed some quirks if i may
say so,i found that many of our muslim classmates seemed to be very
hyperactive,inattentive and more prone to get into fights. they seemed to use
abusive language more than other infidels and i personally did get into trouble
with many of them since i'am not the one to give any quarter since my motto is
"GIVE RESPECT AND TAKE RESPECT".
my first question is,is it because from a very young age
these impressionable kids are brain-washed into islam as you claim it to be ?
I would like to now ask you some questions with respect to
your own country IRAN in the same year as i was born iran underwent a revolution
which brought Ayatollah Khomeini to power.i happened to see a very fine movie
about that "On the wings of the Eagle".which showed in quite graphic
and lucid detail about how common iranians took to the streets with placards and
pictures of Khomeini and brought him into power.so there was no overnight coup
d'etat here. common iranians took to the streets and though they had a choice of
ushering in a democracy they preferred the islamic regime of khomeini.
now it so happened that the islamic regime turned out to be
even worse,a correct analogy here would be, it was like `jumping from the frying
pan into the fire`.
All of a sudden now many iranians like yourself realised
that islam entered iran as a barbaric conqueror way back 1400 years ago.well
that did not seem to have bothered you in 1979.
if this is not hypocrisy what is?
where were you in 1979?why did you not say the same things
back then?why did not you and people like you tell people of iran the truth and
convince them to rally around democracy instead of islam the religion of a
bandit,paedophile,rapist,murderer as you claim it to be.
Also,you tried to clear the perception that iran did not
submit to islam willingly,that people fought it tooth and nail.but please
forgive me i do not know farsi and hence i could not follow the many articles in
this regard can you please provide me an english translation.
also i saw your gruesome picture gallery.but believe me
that is nothing,much worse animistic rituals take place across the world i have
personally attended many in india were people walk on red hot coal,pierce there
skins and mouth with an iron rod.fast for many days on end unlike the phony fast
in ramzan these people fast for real for weeks they do not consume a drop of
water.sit on bed of nails,stand on one foot to meditate and so on.
one particular interesting thing i saw was a child holding
a picture of imam Ali who you describe as " the man who massacred hundreds
of thousands of Iranians and took them, their wives and daughters as slaves
selling them in the markets of Mecca and Medina to a bunch of Savage Arabs, who
thanked Allah for the bounty".
well then why on earth are you still named after that man
why don`t you change your name to a iranian one like darius or cyrus?
i can easily see through you people a dog's tail is always
crooked so is a muslim .if iran were under the shah today you might be one
hosting a website praising some mullah khomeinei.then you would not mind whether
islam was barbaric or quran was full of hate isn`t it? please answer me
and one last question i would like you to answer
IF TOMMOROW IRANIANS MANAGE TO FREE THEMSELVES OF THE
ISLAMIC REGIME AND SAY YOU ARE ELECTED PRESIDENT OF IRAN WOULD YOU BAN ISLAM
i don't think so as i said before once a muslim always a
i would like to again apologise for the length of my
query.but it would mean a lot to me if you replied as it would prove that there
are freethinkers even among muslims who are willing to admit the evils of their
Thank you for your email and your
queries. Let me start answering them without a prelude.
Islam is a cult that indoctrinates
its followers to be violent aggressive and insolent. From childhood Muslims are
brainwashed to believe that their religion is the best, that they are the only
ones who would inherit the heaven, that the none-Muslims are sinners by virtue
of their disbelief and they would go to hell irrespective of whatever good they
do in this world. Muslims are convinced that all those who are not Muslims usurp
the land (the Earth) that belong to Allah and have no right to live on Earth. It
is merely through the Muslims magnanimity that they are left to live and
whenever they wish or they can they should fight them and clean (Pak) the Earth
from the infidels.
The word “righteous” for Muslims
does not mean the same thing that it means for other people. Righteous is one
who submits to Allah irrespective of his conduct. All these inevitably make the
young Muslims arrogant, self righteous, disdainful towards the non-Muslims to
the degree that a non-Muslim loses all his rights and can be dealt with, with
disrespect. Many Muslim youngsters systematically rape the Australian non-Muslim
girls. Many Pakistani Muslims in England constantly break the law and get into
As for your second question, this is
a little more complex than the way you describe it. You should know that Iran
during the reign of the late Shah and in fact for that last 2000 years have been
under the domination of dictatorial regimes. Muhammad Reza Pahlavi, the last
shah of Iran was an ideologist, a modernist but also a dictator. He did a lot of
good things for Iran. He introduced the law of Protection of Family that
curtailed the absolute power of man and prohibited him from marrying a second or
He modernized the country, introduced
land reform, universal education, “quasi” equal rights for women and many
other good things. During his time there was prosperity. But one thing was
lacking and that was democracy. This man could not tolerate criticism. He was
paranoid, he created a very brutal security force to spy on the people and they
abused their power and dealt with the critics of the Shah mercilessly. Shad
modernized Iran but at the same time created a state of terror. Thousands of
people were executed accused of treason. Their crime was to be sympathizers of
People of Iran became tired of that
much iron fist and when Khomeini came along and promised freedom, they foolishly
believed in him and as you said jumped from the frying pad into the fire. They
said let the Shah go any thing is better than him. There is no use to say that I
never supported the Islamic regime. I liked the government of Dr. Bakhtiar the
last Prime Minister nominated by Shah. However, many intellectuals of Iran
decided to back Khomeini to oust the Shah. The masses of people trusted their
intellectuals like Dr.
Bazargan, Dr. Sanjabi, Dr. Forouhar,
Bani Sadr and many more. The
question is why these people did not see the real face of Khomeini? It is a good
question.They themselves want to know why. The answer however is dawning on many
Iranians now. These men were religious. They did not necessarily believe that
religion is the answer or that Iran must become an Islamic country. But they did
not think religion could be so deceiving, so damaging, so evil as it proved to
In 23 years Iranians have had a good
chance to see Islam at work. The revolution took place because the late Shah
kept the Iranians in dark. Where there is no freedom of speech people have no
way to learn the truth. Ignorant people do what ignorant people do and the
revolution became foreseeable.
Despite this, many Iranians have not
learned their lesson. There are some “educated” Iranians who now think
Monarchy was better and Iran should revert to Monarchy. These people now rally
around Reza Pahlavi, the son of the ousted Shah and hope to revive the days of
Monarchy in Iran. As an Iranian I will do my best not to let that happen. It
would be total idiocy for Iranians to go back to Monarchy when the rest of the
world has abandoned this antiquated system of government and has established
democracy and free elections. Would any intelligent person hire a servant that
he can’t fire? How any sane person would chose a master for life when he knows
that there would be no more chance to undoing it if things go wrong?
You asked why I did not warn the
Iranians during 1979. The answer is that at that I did not take part in this
revolution and did never support it, but that is beside the point. The point is
that just like millions of Iranians I did not know the evil of Islam. I learned
about the truth of Islam only recently when I decided to read the Quran. But I
am not the only one. Many Iranians have learned the truth of Islam also and that
is why I say with confidence that Iran would be the first country to get itself
rid of Islam.
Speaking of the picture gallery in my
site you said that such thing also happen in other religions and cults. This
does in no way lessen the brutality of such acts as depicted in those pictures.
Islam claims to be the religion of God and what it does is convert people into
terrorists and zombies. Should I accept these barbarities just because the
animists and Hindus have also stupid rituals?
As far as my name is concerned, this
is the name that I carried since childhood and I am used to it. I should also
tell you that Ali is an Arab name not Islamic. This name existed prior to
Muhammad and his religion. Moreover
there have been many great men who had Arab names and they were not Muslims.
Zakaria Razi, Abul Qasem Ferdowsi, Bu Ali Sina, Ibn Rushd, Omar Kayyam, Abu
Muslim Khorasani, Al Muari, Ahmad Kasravi, Ali Dashti and many more, were
enemies of Islam yet had Arab (or as you say Islamic) names. If these great
“apostates” were happy with their Arab names, I am happy too.
Lastly you asked whether I would ban
Islam if I were elected the president of Iran. The answer is no. What I would do
is to separate the government from religion. I would not ban any ideology no
matter how crazy or foolish that may be. I would not ban Communism, Nazism or
kkk. I would not ban Islam or any other religion. But I would give freedom to
the press and let people say anything without fear. I would eliminate the laws
that curtail the rights of the individuals to criticize dominant ideologies or
beliefs. No belief is sacred. No ideology is sacrosanct. What is sacred is human
liberty, human dignity and human
Muslims who not only insult
everyone’s beliefs but also take their right to believe are the first to cry,
“Oh you have to respect the belief of 1 billion people”. That is nonsense.
Beliefs need not be respected. If a belief is based on facts then it can defend
itself and will be respected automatically but if a belief cannot defend itself
and the only defense it knows is through violence that belief does not have to
be respected. Would anyone in his right mind respect Nazism? If not why one
should respect Islam or any other belief for that matter?
Dear Dr Ali sina,
Thank you very
much for your prompt reply.it was very informative and good to hear from someone
who has seen it first hand.you come across as a person who loves his country a
lot and is a humanist who wishes good for all humankind irrespective of
their faith, ethnicity, race, sex, creed or whatever. may there be more and more
people like you.
also you said that you won't ban islam if you become the
iranian president that is indeed correct why should you be the villian.just
enact a law saying that the vulgar and violent Quran should not be given to
those under 18 years of age. soon people will debate the why and how and islam
will stand exposed.isn't it?
a syrian had
once said that all the gods belong in the museum.i can't say it any better.we
should openly come out against all religions and expose them and make sure we
don't fall into the trap of political correctness while doing so.
you never said anything about christianty. but we tend to
forget that young mohammed travelled to christian lands like syria, palestine
and egypt and was "inspired" by it. his views are largely christian
and all the jihad stuff came much later as he strived to establish himself.he
was basically a political opportunist who changed his colours like a chameleon
when and where it suited his interests and that explains a lot of the
contradictions in the quran. isn't it?
so, he was no different than say George Bush and Tony Blair
who go out brandishing the lie that islam is a" peaceful faith".
today christendom seems to have come to its senses and is mellowing down.but the
Islamic world has not.i really do not understand the logic of bin laden.did he
not expect america to hit back what if it had declared war on islam itself?
between sept 11 and today islam would have become extinct this is AD 2002 not
1095.islam has no chance against america,nor israel or India for that matter.
now again i would like to ask you some queries that
nobody seems to ask at all.
Is khatami really honest? many iranians seem to have
pinned their hopes on him.nearly 77% voted for him.or is it really the very old
game of GOOD COP vs BAD COP to throw people off track?
maybe it is a ploy by the regime to put out a show of
dissidence and tension within to throw small crumbs at the people so that they
don't rise in revolt again like they did last year in Tehran university?
your views about israel?don't you think that palestine is their rightful
land?who are those arabs to lay claim to it?
about my own country india.once it stretched from afghanistan to burma and
kashmir to kanya- kumari today islam has taken away afghanistan,Pakistan and
bangladesh nearly a third of our nation.
the area in present day pak is where the roots of our
great civilisation is(many experts say iran also has its roots here).Harappa and
Mohenjadaro are there.so instead of gifting islam Kashmir i think we indians
should strive to get back our own lands under the illegal custody of islam. what
do you say about it?
there is no doubt that in the past one year i have come to
hate islam a lot.it all started with the mutilation of indian soldiers by
bangladeshis.these are people who we saved from the barbarity of pakistan in
1971 and they repay us with this?!
i began to wonder why it is so and soon i began to uncover
the true face of islam. but whatever the others say. it pales in comparison to
when a person who was born and brought up in islam exposes its evil.
it is why i'am very thankful to you for taking time to
reply to me .i'am sure you are doing all this at a great peril to your own life
there are enough crazed jehadis who would be declaring fatwas on you and wanting
to kill you.
and lastly why is it that the mainstream western media does
not dare to bring people like yourself forward? they seem to find all kinds of
"experts" on islam. but not one person like you why are they so eager
to coverup on islam?
may i know why?
Perhaps they do not know that we
exist. The Faith Freedom International and its knowledgeable members are ready
to answer the media. May be you and other friends could approach the press and
tell them about us.
Your views abut Khatami is also
correct. There is no shred of honesty in any Mullah and Khatami is a

I actually started studying the Muslim faith a couple of
months prior to 9-11 and asked God to guide me to a place of understanding for
it. There was a response from a
Chinese Christian lady that sent me a book that explained in detail the
differences between Jesus and Muhammad and I was thankful to learn so much more
I have not stopped searching for reasons and the mentality
for Muslim faith; however, we need people like you having a web site that just
"states it like it is". I
have been totally suprised by statements in the Koran which seems to be just an
adultered plagerism of the Bible in the name of Satan.
I have always been aware of other religions and beliefs and never
explored Islam. Thank God I did, I
am proud of people like you prepared to bring this information to all people.
Thank you again.

works and that is to combat the ideology behind terrorism. My site is about
this. President Bush wants to expend billions of dollars to fight terrorism.
With all modesty I believe my site that is maintained by very little investment
out of my pocket and a lot of love is far more successful than all those
B-52’s daisy-cutter bombs in eradicating terrorism.
Islamic terrorists get their strength
from the number of Muslims. They get their encouragement from those idiot
Americans and Europeans who “embrace” Islam. These brainwashed morons are
the moral support for Islamic terrorism. It is people like Cat Stevens, Muhammad
Ali, Karen Armstrong and other misinformed commentators that say, “Islam is a
religion of peace” who feed the frenzy of Islamic terrorists.
Once people are informed of the real
Islam, they wont go close to that cult and those poor Muslims by birth, such as
myself, will also abandon Islam. Only when Islam is weakened, Islamic Jihadis
will be disheartened and terrorism will be eliminated.

I went through your web site , it is very interesting , and
I admire your way of thinking , I grew up in Egypt , and I consider my self also
a free thinker , a lot of things in Islam do not make sense to me , however I am
still wondering , (and may be you can help me here), why
did Mohamed take all that torture from the Arabia people back then , what was
his purpose, did he really get revelation from a divine thing ( I do not buy
this ) , I am still struggling of course with his personal life
( i.e his marriages, the
fairy tail journey to the seventh sky , etc ) , but my question is what was his objective or goal in
life to announce himself a profit !
Please take a look at this article.
It may answer your query.
Thanks for your enlighten response, your rational makes a
lot of sense. I thought of something also, Mohamed said that when we die we will
go into a "limbo " period where if we were bad " and specially
did not pray " there will be a "bold snake who will torture us till
the judgment day where we all going to be judged, and god will decide whether we
deserve heaven or hell. Mohamed will make recommendation to God that for some
Moslems they deserve a break so God can forgive them and
put him in heaven!
So that means that no one will enter heaven or hell before
the judgment day for all god's creatures, so when Mohamed went on his journey to
the seventh sky, he mentioned that he saw Hell full of mostly "women"
(question where all these people come from that he saw in hel? I thought they
would be there AFTER the judgment day! He also met with god to ask him "or
to negotiate to drop the number of prayers from 50 a day to 5 a day!
Can you believe this , I just wanted to add this
information , which I am sure you know about it already keep up the good work

Dear Mr Sina,
Just a word of encouragement to say how much I
appreciate people who make
the sacrifices that you do (and you must devote a
great deal of time and money to your wonderful website, not to mention the
risk you incur to your own person), in order to, well, I suppose
"make us free" would be the best description. Free from
centuries (nay, millenia, aeons) of primitive thinking and bigotry.
I have never been particularly religious, being
half-Jewish and half Christian, my family were "nothing". But
the great philosophical questions continued to bother me even late in life
(when I should have been more mature...!): what are we here for, where are
A number of years ago, ALL questions of this sort
were answered, and my life has been stabler and happier ever since. The
answer was provided by carefully reading Richard Dawkin's "The
Selfish Gene", which explains in layman's terms the workings of
evolution in the light of modern genetic theory. I realised that Science,
unlike any religion, did not have a premise to prove by any means. Rather
the other way round - science proposes a theory or explanation, and then
tests it thoroughly by rational thought. Science, unlike religion, is the
first to be delighted when one of its theories are disproved.
Religion has never done anything for man. Has it been
responsible for curing deadly diseases? Has religion put men on the moon?
No - men have done that, using science, which has no pretensions, and
would be appalled to hear itself called a "religion". (I must
put in one aside in favour of religion: religion has been instrumental in
inspiring men to the greatest works of art and music, and I am grateful to
it for that!)
Giordano Bruno, the scientific philosopher, was
burned to death by the Inquisition in Rome in 1600 for his heretical
views. Galileo was condemned by the church for his Copernican theory. You
are like them, or other enlightened people who have been courageous enough
to stand up and tell the world: "Look carefully, this is really a
load of rubbish". And eventually, we poor mortals realise that they
were right all along.
May you continue your hard and thankless work. We are
all bigger because of you. God (who of course doesn't exist) bless you!

Many Muslims living in western countries do not seem
to have grasped a basic fact about the societies in which they have
settled which they must grasp if they and their co-religionists are going
to keep the goodwill of their hosts.
In our countries Islam is and shold be just one
religion among many. The fact that Muslims have been allowed to come and
live here at all is due to the secular nature of our societies and the
fact that most of us no longer take religion too seriously. For most of
the past 1400 years the practice of Islam has been prohibited in the
predominantly Christian lands of Europe. If Muslims see themselves on a
mission to turn our countries into Islamic states by stealth then they are
not welcome and should leave. If they think our societies are decadent
then they should go and live in countries more to their liking.
Muslims constantly complain that
"westerners" don't understand Islam. That is just as well for
them. If the population of my country were aware of the nature of this
nasty, hate-mongering religion when large-scale immigration from the
Indian sub-continent began then not a single Muslim Would have been
allowed to set foot on our shores. Although Muslims constantly express
contempt for our "western" values, Muslims living in todays
western democracies have enjoyed more religious freedom than Jews and
Christians in any Islam-dominated society that has ever existed. Muslims
take advantage of our climate of religious tolerance to seek converts to
their faith yet give moral support to Islamic regimes which deny the same
liberty to non-Muslims, as well as financial support to organisations like
al-Qaida whose aim is the creation of an Islamic superstate with the power
to threaten, invade and conquer non-Muslim countries.
It is time we treated these subversive fanatics
according to their own warped standards.

Please do reply.
I thank you for your very kind
words. Actually what I write is just simple commonsense. The reason you
like it is because you already know it and believe in it. There is nothing
new or original in my website. I say nothing that others have not said
before me more eloquently. In fact I am very much aware of my own
ignorance and shortcomings. My writings are expressions of simple
thoughts. That is all I can produce: “simple thoughts”
I am actually very much honored to see people expend their time
reading them. In fact I am more than surprised to see so much attention
given to this site. I am quite aware that the reason this site has become
so popular is not because what I write is important (of course there are
very good writings that my friends have written and I have adorned my site
with them) but because the message I deliver has never been allowed to be
expressed and therefore has never been heard. In Islamic countries people
like me were silenced and their books burned and in Western countries
people avoided the criticism of religion and especially Islam due to
“political correctness”. I suppose Sep 11 have changed everything.
Anyway, despite my shortcomings
I decided to write. I always wanted to do something positive for the
world. For many years I dreamed of starting orphanages in third world
countries. But this dream never materialized. I never made enough money to
launch my ideas. With this website, I try to spread the message of love,
eliminate the causes of hate, ward off a world catastrophe of unimaginable
consequence and bring about the unity of human kind before nothing of that
is left. Of course what I do is so insignificant but that is all I can do.
As Edward Everett Hale said, “I am only one, but still I am one. I
cannot do everything, but still I can do something; and because I cannot
do everything I will not refuse to do the something that I can do."
As for writing about myself, I
don’t think that is necessary. In one word I am nobody. I do not write
to glorify myself. I am not after fame or name and I do not wish to become
the center of any attention. My site is not about me at all. It is about a
message. The thoughts expressed there are not mine either. They are things
I learned throughout my life from better thinkers than myself. They are
commonsense. The problem is that the commonsense is not very common. And
there are those who oppose even the commonsense.
