    Will any one draw this to the attention of the greatest islamic scholar/defender Mehdi Hasan? Just two days back I saw his oxford blah-blah and stunned to see how cunningly he is portraying that Islam and muslim means only peace!. Ali Sina should invite him for a debate. It is a shame that such innocent sounding scoundrels have India as their origin

    Compelling the common people to do what is what in everyday life in the name of some religion is the worst of its kind and it will only lead to the humen sufferings. Islam and its activities in the name of quran and allah instruction is the worst of the worst in the present situation. It encourages population growth in mulitiple dimension and at the same time create chaos in the public domain by teaching false science and encourages jihad and killing. Poor and common public are not able resist the impossion of mullahs dominations. These mullahs are sitting safely inside the mosque and enjoing their life in every sense and are ony responsible for all these chaos in the present day world.

    In my openion if proper and equal education and oppertunity is given to all the female population of the muslim community then within a decade the so called islamic religion will vanish from this world.

    To some extent the above also applies to christein and jewish religions except the killing aspects. the so called fathers and brothers and pops enjoy the fullest life in all means and misdirect the common people to unergo sufferrings.

    This message was keyboarded September 11, 2017. Now it’s been sixteen years since those Islamic terror attacks on Homeland America . Islam’s brutally cruel violent and murderous jihad may be seen on that day of the jihad of Islam in that heinous deadly affront against humankind and vicious jihad attack against the USA. As for example ,this month I’m reading a book by a former Muslim which is entitled THE ISLAM IS ISLAMIC TERRORISM .That title just about exposes it all about the actual essence of Islam. Therefore the following essay is ,of now, very appropriate to thus reiterate.
    Don’t let them fool you, the many apologists for Islam is will endeavor to set up a smokescreen to hide the reality of the truth about the violence and deadly essence of Islam by making the bogus claim that the al Qaeda operatives mass murderer on 9/11 were not real Muslims and that they were breaking the laws of the Qu ‘ran by their violence and deadly actions.” The apologists for Islam will further make the totally false claim that “Those terrorists on 9/11 were only criminals who hijacked the peaceful religion of Islam for Politics.” Those outrageously false claims are weak attempt of damage control for the image of Islam to the West. For the “holy book” of Islam the Qu ‘ran. For the Qu ‘ran instruct in Sura 9:111. Muslims who are engaging the jihad that “The believer’s fight in Allah’s Cause, they slay and are slain ,they kill and are killed “ That’s just what happened on September 11, 2001 the jihadists of al Qaeda “killed and were killed” in those 9/11 jihad attacks against both humankind and America. The Quran also teaches in Sura 9:123 to that jihad –minded Muslims behavior towards non-Muslims “let them find harshness in you…” Those Islamic attacks on 9/11 were indeed very “harsh.” As Sura 2:191 instructs “kill the disbeliever wherever you find them.” That’s a very strange kind of “peaceful religion” if there ever was one. Just to site one more out on many from the Qu ‘ran about the instruction of deadly violence is Sura 47:4. Which instructs “Whenever you encounter unbelievers strike off their heads until you make a great slaughter among them …” Let’s face it, using jet planes a missiles as those jihadist/ Muslims did of September 11, sure made a greater “slaughter among them” then sword can. Wake up West to the actual nature of Islam before it’s too late.

    The vicious and murderous jihadist/Muslim thugs who compose the brutal and deadly jihad entity ISIS are actually putting in to the practice, with all their ruthless actions, the violence and killing that is part of the teaching of the “holy book” of Islam, the Koran. Which contain the doctrine of extreme violent force for the advancement of Islam. As seen in the Koran, for example, 2:191. 4:89. 5:33. 9:5,111,123. 47:4. So in spite of the strong denials by many, ISIS is an actual Islamic organization. Likewise the malicious, bloodthirsty violence jihadists who make up ISIS are real Muslims. Nevertheless, there are some who might , understandably, wonder and then ask “Just how can those jihadists of ISIS ,being so very religious , also at the time also be so very malice-filled ,unfeeling and deadly ? “ The answer to that question is found in the Bible. For the Bible teaches that there are some people who are extremely heartless, cold, callous and dangerous because they have had “their conscience seared with a hot iron.” First Timothy 4:2. [ K.J.V.] In this case of the members of ISIS this “hot iron” is Islam.

    Many times the jihadist members of different Islamic terror entities, as those of ISIS, have gathered together and chanted the words “We love death, they love life.” Likewise those jihadist/Muslims don’t stop with those awful words; they carry through with jihad suicide/homicide attacks. Any sane person would ask “Why do those jihad –minded Muslims have such a mindset of murderous madness?” The answer is that they obtain the way of thinking and believing from the “holy book” of Islam, the Koran. As some people call it the Qu ‘ran. For example the Koran in Sura 9:111 instructs “The believers fight in Allah’s Cause, they slay and are slain, they kill and are killed.” Therefore it may be conclude that Islam is actually a death cult. In great and wonderful contrast to the death cult which is Islam there is Christianity which is centered on Jesus and His teachings. For Jesus did not teach killing and death but taught and gave life, a good peaceful well lived life and more. For example Jesus declared “I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” John 10:10. [K.J.V.]

    Summary – Muslims (and non Muslims) should be able to openly discuss the relationship between Islamic religious teachings and the behaviour of Islamic terror groups and criminal actions of Muslims. In just the same way as people can openly discuss – and criticise – Judaism and Christianity – and other religions and ideologies – without fear of violence, ostracisation , accusations of racism and legal penalty
