of war between America and Vietnam
was once at war with
. Suppose the President of America or the General of the American Army told the
American soldiers during the war: "Wherever you find the Vietnamese, kill
them". Today if I say that the American President said, "Wherever you
find Vietnamese, kill them" without giving the context, I will make him
sound like a butcher. But if I quote him in context, that he said it during a
war, it will sound very logical, as he was trying to boost the morale of the
American soldiers during the war.
9:5 quoted to boost morale of Muslims during battle
in Surah Taubah chapter 9 verse 5 the Qur’an says, "Kill the Mushriqs
where ever you find them", during a battle to boost the morale of the
Muslim soldiers. What the Qur’an is telling Muslim soldiers is, don’t be
afraid during battle; wherever you find the enemies kill them.
If any president
says such thing in any war he should be tried as war criminal. Even the Vietnam
War that went so wrong and so much abuse took place; the intent was not to kill
Vietnamese wherever they are found. This insanity only could occur to Muhammad
and his benighted followers. Americans went there thinking they are defending
the government from the communist take over. They went to help and protect the
people not to kill Vietnamese wherever they find them. Yes many abuses were
committed, but at no time those were the intent of the people of
. I heard this prefabricated response a hundred times and all it shows is the
inability of Muslims to distinguish right from wrong. They try to justify an
evil action of Muhammad with a false hypothesis.
Now let us say
the a government, not America, but a truly demonic regime like Hitler ordered
his soldiers to kill, say the Jews, wherever they are found. Okay, so Muhammad
was not the only one who said it. But Hitler is a monster. No one follows that
fiend. Muslims are following as a prophet of God. Here lies the insanity of
jump from verse 5 to verse 7
of Islam quotes the same verse, Surah Taubah chapter 9 verse 5 After quoting
verse 5 they jumps to verse 7 of Surah Taubah. Any sensible person will realise
that he has skipped verse 6.
Taubah chapter 9 verse 6 gives the answer
Surah Taubah chapter 9 verse 6 gives the answer to the allegation that Islam
promotes violence, brutality and bloodshed. It says:
"If one amongst the Pagans ask thee for asylum, grant it to him, so that
he may hear the word of Allah; and then escort him to where he can be secure
that is because they are men without knowledge." [Al-Qur’an
Qur’an not only says that a Mushriq
seeking asylum during the battle should be granted refuge, but also that he
should be escorted to a secure place. In the present international scenario,
even a kind, peace-loving army General, during a battle, may let the enemy
soldiers go free, if they want peace. But which army General will ever tell his
soldiers, that if the enemy soldiers want peace during a battle, don’t just
let them go free, but also escort them to a place of security?
is exactly what Allah (swt) says in the Glorious Qur’an to promote peace in
explained the meaning of this verse. The context of the verse is not in any
battle. As I said this sura was issued when Muhammad had already conquered
and was the de-facto potentate of the entire
. Now the pagans were in minority. He demanded that they should covert or die. He
says if they ask you to save them so they can convert (so that he may
hear the word of God;) then escort him to where he can be secure. This does not
mean the non Muslims can remain in their faith and live happily ever after. The
whole intent of this sura is to force Islam on others. Non-Muslims here are not
attacking anyone. Muhammad says: if they do not fight back and surrender,
don’t kill them. This is like a gangster holding a gun to your head and
telling you that he wants to rape your wife; if you protest and fight you would
be killed but if you cooperate then your life would be saved. This whole sura is
an ultimatum to pagans. This sura does not say promote peace. it says force
everyone to submit. There is no such thing as peace in Islam the way normal
people understand it. There is only submission. The whole world must submit to
Muhammad or face death. This is the real meaning of Islam.
In one email you said that in many countries Islam expanded
without war. Jihad has two legs, one is terror and the other is deceit. Muslims
advance by both means. In Indonesia they used deceit and now they use pressure.
Yesterday Muslims beheaded three Christian school girls in Poso Indonesia, just
as they do in Pakistan and elsewhere. There has been also two bombings in Bali.
These are tactics to intimidate the Christians, make life unbearable for them,
kill them or force them into conversion.
I will respond to other points in your email in the next few
Meanwhile I invite you to read FAQ #
70 It deals with the same subject that we dealt in this discussion. It
shows how Muslims misrepresent the truth to make Islam look peaceful when in
reality it is not.
