But there are other versions of Islam. Not all Muslims are fanatics.
There are many Muslims who are liberals, who believe in human rights and
equality of gender. You cannot condemn all the Muslims.
The Islam I am opposing is the Islam
of the Prophet Muhammad and what he taught in Quran. I am not concerned
about other versions of Islam. Islam cannot be changed. You only can
change Islam when you change Quran. Trying to humanize Islam is like
trying to humanize Nazism. Representing Islam as a tolerant and
humanistic religion is lying. Can you put the foundation of human
happiness on lies?
Quran and Hadith say that women are
less than men; they are deficient in intelligence and beat your wives.
How can you preach equality without changing what is in Quran?
Quran demands killing the
disbelievers, waging war on them until everyone converts to Islam or is
"subdued, feels humiliated and pay Jizyah", How can you build
an Islam that talks about tolerance, but neglect the inhumanities of
Quran? It is
like saying, let us discover the “liberal” Nazism in which everybody
is loving and gentle, and there is no racial hostility. If you want to
fool yourself go ahead but you won’t be able to fool
others. If you are so much attached to Islam, live by it. Don’t try to
change it and pick and choose what pleases you most. If you are
unsatisfied with what you see, may be it is time to move on. The true
Muslim was Khomeini.
