“Take them off”
An eccentric scream shatters the tranquility of a dark night – Hyenas are laughing! Right before dusk, a leap of leopards successfully captured a deer. Now, in the midst of mighty darkness, pairs of glowing eyes are moving slowly. Impatient hyenas have been watching from a safe distance since leopards attacked the prey, now hyenas are waiting for them to leave.
Typically, hyenas are cowardly, shy and Scavengers, a type of animals who eat food that they did not kill. They are opportunists like some human beings. Hyenas make different sounds, including wailing calls, howling screams and the maniacal “laughter” to call other members, when a source of food is found. As soon as the leopards will leave, these hyenas will jump into the leftover.
1971, in a dirty room of an unhygienic hospital, exhausted Lolita is lying on the bed. The only small window of the room is covered with an old, yellowish curtain. Rays of light that came through the holes of the curtain are falling on Lolita’s frightened face. Some areas of her clothing are blood soaked, and look darker and stiffer than other parts.
A doctor enters the room with his assistant. After noticing the dirty window coverings and the scarcity of light, he orders the assistant, “Take them off”. Nervous Lolita tries to get up and takes her cloths off with her shaky hands. Embarrassed doctor thinks for a moment, and then he realizes the reason for Lolita’s behavior. In a recent war, Muslim army, just like leopards, looked for young women in the area of invasion and stored them for pleasure. Lolita is one of them, who were raped numerous times in the last nine months. She was raped in front of her husband, before he was killed. Since then, she has heard this order many times, “Take them off”!**
Like killing, raping captive women is an elemental fabric of Islam. *(١) In the battle of Hunain, outlaws of Mohammad captured some wives of polytheists but they were hesitant to have intercourse with them. After all, having sex with a married woman is adultery and also*( ٢) pagans are unclean. To solve the problem, *( ٣) Allah, with a sense of perversion, revealed verse 4.24 that cleared off the confusion and authorized Muslim warriors to have sex with married captive women when the menstruation period is over. This verdict was also emphasized in verse 33.50 *(٤) and allowed Muslim warriors to rape all slaves and captive women.
It’s understandable that fundamentalists will follow the book literally and commit any crime to fulfill the wish of their hallucinated mind. But, how about those Muslim intellectuals, those highly educated and know-it-all? Don’t they see the ugliness and brutality of Islam? Off course, they do but they will never admit. Like hyenas, they are shy and cowards, no guts to face the truth.
These hypocrites vigorously condemn the liberal attitude of western countries. When an unmarried couple decides to live together, Muslim intellectuals outburst through wailing calls and howling screams. However they remain awfully quiet when Muslim fighters rape many Lolitas. If confronted with these accusations, they twist and deceive the meanings of Quran with maniacal laughter. These intellectuals are opportunists, just like hyenas. When leopards are busy with Lolitas or fighting to destroy dar-ul-harb, these intellectual hyenas are watching from a safe distance and waiting for the right time.
*(١) The book of Marriage, Sahih Muslim, compiled by Al-Hafiz Zakiuddin Abdul-Azim Al-Mundhiri.
“Abu Saîd Al-Khudri narrated that at the battle of Hunain, the Messenger of Allah sent an army to Autas and encountered the enemy and fought with them. Having overcome them and taken them as captives, the Companions of the Messenger of Allah seemed to refrain from having intercourse with captive women because of their husbands being polytheists. Then Allah, the Most High, revealed: (4.24) “And women already married, except those whom your right hands posses.” (i.e., they were lawful for them when their Iddah period came to an end.)”
*(٢) Quran9.28 YUSUFALI: O ye who believe! Truly the Pagans are unclean……
*(٣) Quran 4.24 Dr. Muhammand Taqi-ud-din Al-Hilali, Ph.d ( Berlin ) and Dr. Muhammad Muhsin Khan: Also (forbidden are) women already married, except those (slaves) whom your right hands possess…………..
*(٤) Quran 33.50 YUSUFALI: O Prophet! We have made lawful to thee thy wives to whom thou hast paid their dowers; and those whom thy right hand possesses out of the prisoners of war whom Allah has assigned to thee……
