Re: Islamic Jihad: A Legacy of Forced Conversion, Imperialism and Slavery
Criticism of the irrational and anti-human elements of faith is welcome and the urgent need of the hour.
I welcome M A Khan's hard hitting analysis of the last retrograde faith on earth - Islam. While inimical elements are found in all faiths in varying degrees, Islam tops the list of hate teachings, fiction and irrationality.
Post 9/11, critical books and articles on Islam have increased tremendously and the internet has also played a vaulable role in bringing forth bold critiques on the sinister aspects of its teachings.
Al Jazeera estimates that every year around 6 million Muslims quit Islam out of disgust and that the major reason why Islam is still growing is due to high birth rates.
Why does Islam invite derision?
While the followers of other faiths have largely reformed themselves and are working towards finding an integrated solution to solving the common woes facing humanity and improving standards in all constructive fields, most Muslims still remain brainwashed by the infantile and crude Quranic teachings and are languishing at the bottom of the heap in every constructive endeavour and their beliefs are obstacles to free thinking, freedom, free will and cretivity and at some stage or the other it is but natural to expect that Islam with its evenagelical zeal (that originates from the Quranic dictate of converting the whole world to its pet theories) will certainly clash with people of other faiths, free thinkers and the discoveries of science and then Muslims will pick up arms to launch a Jihad as the Quran openly says that wherever the spread of Islam meets opposition armed Jihad should be launched until the foe is subdued and "religion is only for Allah !"
