Leaving Islam




symposium on Islamic terrorism

Guest: Abul Kasem


Earlier I had the pleasure to interview Nonie Darwish and ask her about her views on terrorism, what causes it and how we should deal with this threat. Today my guest is our dear friend Abul Kasem. Abul Kasem is originally from Bangladesh . He has seen the brutality of Islam in his own homeland, during the war of 1971 when the Pakistani forces backed by Islamic decree invaded Bangladesh and went on a killing, looting and raping spree massacring three million Bangladeshis, especially the intellectuals and raping nearly 250,000 women. (The number could be higher. This is what is reported). Abul Kassem was a university student at that time and recalls how his dorm was raided and many students and professors were butchered. He was spared only by luck. Abul Kasem is a university professor of physics and resides in Sydney Australia. He uses a pseudonym.     

Dear Abul Kasem, thank you for accepting my invitation and welcome to this seminar. Can you please tell us   

Why Muslims dislike and distrust the non-Muslims?  

The Qur’an teaches Muslims not to be friendly with the non-Muslims or to trust them (3:28, 4:139, 4:144, 5:57).  It also advocates that the non-Muslims are the associates of Satan (4:77) and warns of severe punishment to those Muslims who try to be in affable terms with the non-Muslims (5:80). A Muslim convert must not be in congenial terms even with his non-Muslim parents ( 9:23 ) and he is free to murder his parents and kindred (58:22) if they criticise the convert’s new faith. The Qur’an says that the non-Muslims are open enemies of Islam (4:101, 60:1, 60:13). Muslims are commanded to be harsh and ruthless with them (9:73, 48:29, 66:9), to terrorise them ( 8:12 ), to humiliate them ( 9:29 ), to make war on them (2:216, 9:123) and to murder them wherever they are found (9:5).

A true Muslim must follow the Qur’an in complete. Therefore, it is obligatory for him/her to dislike and distrust the non-Muslims. It is the Qur’an which is responsible for such unbound hatred.

Why they think of us as enemy when we have no feeling of enmity towards them?

Please refer to the previous answer. Even when the unbelievers harbour no enmity or dislike towards the Muslims, they (the Muslims) must not take the unbelievers as friends and allies. The infidels’ unbelief (that is, their refusal to convert to Islam) is the main reason why Muslims must hate them. Refusal to convert to Islam in itself is considered as an act of hostility and oppression. That is why non-Muslims are open enemies of Islam—nothing, not even their good intentions, could render them friendly towards the Muslims.

What are their grievances?

No one knows. I doubt if Muslims could ever list their genuine grievances. All we hear are: Palestine , Afghanistan , Iraq , Kashmir , America , the West, the Jews, the Hindus, CIA, FBI, Sharon, George Bush, Tony Blair…..and so on. But theses are just alibis to continue with Islam’s eternal struggle with the infidel world. Even when Palestine problem was not there, when there was no America , no George Bush and no Tony Blair, Islam was still at war with the entire world. Countries, like Bangladesh , Indonesia and Egypt have no troops fighting in Iraq . Yet these countries are heavily infested with Islamist terrorists. We often learn that these terrorists bomb clubs, hotels, motels pubs, entertainment centres, cinema houses, shrines, public meetings, open air stages, theatres and so on. These examples clearly demonstrate that Islamic terrorism has nothing to do with Iraq or Afghanistan war, but has everything to do with Islam itself. The Islamic history is replete with episodes after episodes of such wars, utter death, indiscriminate destruction, forced annexation and unprovoked attacks on infidel lands. I can bet that when George Bush and Tony Blair will be gone Islam will still be at war with the rest of the world.

On 17th August, 2005, the Islamist group, Jamiatul Mijahidin of Bangladesh (JMB) had detonated around 400 bombs across entire Bangladesh (out of 64 sub-districts, 63 have been affected) within an hour’s time. In history, this is probably the largest number of bombs detonated by any terrorist group in such a short span of time. Two persons have been killed and around 200 people injured. JMB justified their cause by quoting the Qur’anic verses 4:60, 4:71, 5:50, 6:144, 7:54, 12:40 and 16:36.

I do not think even 0.1% people of Bangladesh understand Arabic! This proves the hand of the Arabists’ and the Arabic chauvinists’ involvement in Jihadi movement. Please read on to learn that Islamism is actually Arab chauvinism and hegemony.]

Killing, assassination, terrorism, bloodshed are the DNA codes of Islam. Even if the whole world converts to Islam, the true Muslims will continue perpetrating bloodshed. The best example is Pakistan , where 97% of the population is Muslim, yet there is bloodshed even among the Muslims—like the Sunnis killing the Shias and the Ahmedis. In Bangladesh , the so-called moderate Muslims are fighting the Ahmedi Muslims. I doubt even Allah knows what the Muslims’ grievances are!

What do these Muslim terrorists want?

The correct answer is: They want to convert the entire world into an Islamic “ Paradise ”. There is no surprise in this. During his days, Muhammad had asked the Muslims to terrorise the world until Islam rules supreme (3:85, 5:3, 5:33 ). Qur’an exhorts the Muslims to keep fighting (with swords, not spiritually) until they perfect the world through Islamic purification and domination ( 9:33 ). In reality, it means imposing on the non-Muslims (or the non-Arabs) the Arabic and Bedouin culture (also known as Islam) by force, murder and terrorism.  Even Caliph Umar had admitted that Bedouins are the raw materials of Islam (reference: History of the Arabs by Phillip K. Hitti). In short, we may say that Islam is really about Arab chauvinism and supremacy. Now that some Arab countries have become rich through oil money, it is time for them to export and impose globally, through any or all means, their language, culture and religion, that is, Islam, even if this means financing terrorism. The world must realise that the current war is really a war of culture, values and civilisation--a war between the Arab-Islamic culture and the non-Arab/non-Islamic culture. This war was waged before, from time to time, and it is being waged again. History is just repeating itself.
