Islam Threatened by Right to Choose Religion…

Muslims said to fear that freedom to legally change religion would CONVERT’S RELIGIOUS RIGHTS CASE THREATENS ISLAMISTS

In the dilapidated office here of three lawyers representing one of Egypt’s “most wanted” Christian converts, the mood was hopeful in spite of a barrage of death threats against them and their client. At a court hearing on May 2, a judge agreed to a request by the convert from Islam to join the two cases he has opened to change his ID card to reflect his new faith. The court set June 13 as the date to rule on Maher Ahmad El-Mo’otahssem Bellah El-Gohary’s case, and lawyer Nabil Ghobreyal said he was hopeful that progress thus far will lead to a favorable ruling. At the same time, El-Gohary’s lawyers termed potentially “catastrophic” for Egyptian human rights a report sent to the judge by the State Council, a consultative body of Egypt’s Administrative Court. Expressing outrage at El-Gohary’s “audacity” to request a change in the religious designation on his ID, the report claims the case is a threat to societal order and violates sharia (Islamic law). “This [report] is bombarding freedom of religion in Egypt,” said lawyer Said Faiz. “They are insisting that the path to Islam is a one-way street. The entire report is based on sharia.”

Women should not allowed to come out of their house for any reason other than to perform Haj: Sharia gem

Sufi Muhammad an expert in Sharia (the oppressive Islamic law) says

* Women can only come out of their houses to perform Haj

* Democracy, communism, socialism, fascism are un-Islamic systems of governance
* Says jihad is only obligatory when infidels seek to eliminate Sharia

It is un-Islamic for anyone to be photographed, Prominent Islamic party in Pakistan, Tehreek-e-Nifaz-e-Shariat-e-Muhammadi (TNSM) chief Sufi Muhammad has said.

Talking to a private TV channel, he said

 

On the status of women in a Taliban-run society, he said women were not allowed to come out of their house for any reason other than to perform Haj. That they should be covered head to toe and never show their face or any body part ever in their lifetime.

And any duplicated image of a person, whether a “still picture or video” was un-Islamic. Referring to the various systems of governance, he said democracy, communism, socialism and fascism were all un-Islamic. He also said there was no need for a constitution in the country in the presence of the Quran and Sunnah, adding these were the “biggest laws” available to humanity. Focusing on democracy, he said it was un-Islamic, as infidels invented it. “I would not offer prayer behind anyone who would seek to justify democracy,” he said.

Sufi Muhammad said the Sharia system of governance not currently in force anywhere in the world, not even Saudi Arabia or Iran. “Only the Taliban had enforced Sharia when they were in power in Afghanistan,” he added. He said he had gone to Afghanistan to conduct jihad, and not to cater to Mullah Omar or Osama Bin Laden. “Jihad was obligatory at the time because the US wanted to end Sharia in Afghanistan,” he added. He said Muslims could not wage jihad until the enforcement of Sharia, adding jihad becomes obligatory on Muslims only after infidels attempt to eliminate the Sharia system of governance.

Islamic Taliban Demolish Sikh Homes over Refusal to Pay Jizya

Islamic Taliban militants have demolished 11 homes of members of the minority Sikh community in Pakistan’s troubled Aurakzai tribal region after they failed to pay ‘jiziya’ or a tax levied on non-Muslims.
 

 


Amid reports of demolition of homes of Sikhs in parts of Pakistan, India on Friday said it had taken up the matter of treatment of minorities in that country with the government in Islamabad.

“On seeing reports about Sikh families in Pakistan being driven out of their homes and being subject to ‘jiziya’ and other such impositions, the Government of India has taken up with Pakistan the question of treatment of minorities with the government of Pakistan,” Indian External Affairs Ministry spokesman Vishnu Prakash said.

According to reports, Islamic Taliban militants have demolished 11 homes of members of the minority Sikh community in Pakistan’s troubled Aurakzai tribal region after they failed to pay ‘jiziya’ or a tax levied on non-Muslims.

The Islamic militants acted after a deadline set by them for payment of ‘jiziya’ by the Sikhs expired on April 29, The Sikhs had discussed the possibility of leaving the area at a meeting of the community but were unable to reach a decision.

Though the Sikhs have been living in Aurakzai Agency for centuries, the Islamic  Taliban asked them earlier this month to pay Rs 50 million a year as jiziya.

The Islamic militants claimed this was being done as Sharia or Islamic law had been enforced in the area and all non-Muslims have to pay “protection money”.

Sunnis massacare more Iraqi Shias

Two female suicide bombers hiding explosives in their purses struck worshippers streaming into Baghdad’s most important Shiite shrine for Friday prayers, killing at least 66 people a day after Iraq’s most deadly violence in more than a year.

Dozens of Iranian pilgrims were again said to be among the dead.

The two days of attacks — both against civilian targets — marked a troubling twist to what had already been a recent rise in suicide blasts, many of them against security forces. The bombings, typical of Sunni extremists linked with al-Qaida in Iraq, are raising fresh concerns about the ability of Iraqis to take the lead role in protecting the capital and nearby areas as the Americans shift their focus and resources to Afghanistan.

“It is just like a massacre took place,” said Laith Ali, 35, who owns a shop near the tomb of Shiite saint Imam Mousa al-Kazim. The golden-domed shrine, a popular destination for pilgrims, is located in the northern neighborhood of Kazimiyah.

“Where are the security precautions that the security officials are talking about?” Ali asked.

The female bombers, believed to be in their 30s, detonated explosives that were stuffed inside their leather bags and linked to a grenade, according to Maj. Gen. Jihad al-Jabiri, the head of the Interior Ministry’s explosives department.

The women detonated the explosives by pulling the ring of the grenade, al-Jabiri told Iraqi state television late Friday.

The number of bombings carried out by women has spiked this year — even as overall violence has declined — because of their ability to often avoid detection at checkpoints.

Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki ordered a military task force to investigate the bombings, said military spokesman Maj. Gen. Qassim al-Moussawi. He also suspended the area commanders for failing to provide adequate security around the shrine.

The blasts took place within minutes of each other near separate gates of the tomb, said a police official. Another police official said the bombers struck shortly before the start of Friday prayers as worshippers streamed into the mosque.

The attack left the bodies of the dead — some of them burned — scattered on the ground near the entrance of the shrine. Hours later, pools of blood streaked the sidewalks.

Many of the wounded were taken to Kazimiyah Teaching Hospital, overwhelming the staff. AP Television News footage showed many victims, including women and children, forced to wait outside before they could be seen by medical staff.

Among the dead were 25 Iranian pilgrims, said police and hospital officials. At least 127 people, including 80 Iranian pilgrims, also were wounded in the blast, the officials said on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to release the information.

On Thursday, suicide bomb blasts tore through crowds waiting for food aid in central Baghdad and inside a roadside restaurant filled with Iranian pilgrims to the north in Diyala province. Eighty-eight people were killed Thursday, Iraq’s deadliest day since March 8, 2008.

Iran‘s powerful former president and influential cleric Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani condemned the attacks and accused the United States of failing to protect the Shiite pilgrims.

“The extremists are the big criminals who launch jihad (holy war) out of ignorance,” he said, according to Iran’s official IRNA news agency. “The security should be guaranteed so that we will not witness such events in the future.”

The U.S. military said it could not provide further details because the area around the shrine was patrolled by Iraqi security forces.

Iraq’s Shiite majority — oppressed under Saddam Hussein — came to power after he was toppled, and Sunnis remain suspicious of the country’s new leaders and their links to Iran.

The Baghdad shrine attacked Friday has been a favored target of insurgents, most recently in early April when a bomb left in a plastic bag near the mosque killed seven people and wounded 23.

In January, a man dressed as a woman blew himself up near the shrine, killing more than three dozen people and wounding more than 70.

Imam Mousa al-Kazim is one of 12 Shiite saints. Hundreds of thousands of Shiites march to the shrine in Kazimiyah every year to commemorate his death in A.D. 799. Shiites believe al-Kazim is buried in the shrine.

Also Friday, the new U.S. ambassador to Iraq, Christopher Hill, arrived in Baghdad to take up his post three days after being confirmed by the Senate. The process was stalled for weeks as Sen. Sam Brownback, a Republican, objected to Hill’s handling of talks with North Korea during the Bush administration. Hill was then the chief negotiator with the Communist nation.

8 year old Zamiran forced in to marriage with 50 year old Muslim money lender

Another classic Islamic example of child rape or child marriage has been witnessed on Sunday in Pakistan when a heavily-indebted Mr. Mohammad Siddiq Sheikh gave his eight-year-old daughter, Ms. Zamiran, in marriage to a 50-year-old Muslim moneylender, Mr. Nihal  to clear the debt in the Jungal village in Jacobabad district in Pakistan on Sunday night.

On Sunday night, Mr. Nihal accompanied by his accomplices visited Mr. Muhammad’s house and repeated his demand to which Muhammad said he would not be able to pay.

Nihal asked him to give his minor daughter Zamiran in marriage to him to get the debt cleared, which the father agreed readily. He called the local Islamic priest moulavi Inayatullah Soomro who solemnised his daughter’s nikkah with Nihal. 

 

Note: Islam which allows child marriage and another point to be noted is the founder of Islam Muhameed at the age of 56 had married 6 year old Ayesha, it also allows polygamy, women beating, stoning of women if they do not comply to the diction of men, all of which comprises the core of the Islamic law or Sharia as stated in Koran or Quran( the holy book of terroists oops.. Muslims)

Freedom of Speech in Islam

The term ‘Human Rights’ is used by many, also by Muslims. But it doesn’t necessarily imply that the users of the term mean the same thing. This is important to note as we discuss freedom of speech and religion. There are two major global entities with their respective declarations on human rights: The United Nations (UN) and the Organization of Islamic Conference (OIC).

United Nations was founded after the 2nd World War. The UN declaration on human rights is based on Judeo-Christian ethics and was established in 1948. OIC was founded in 1969, has 57 member states and represents every fifth person on the globe. OIC has developed and adopted its own declaration on human rights, partly in opposition the UN version, stating that Islamic human rights are different. These Muslim countries have signed up to the UN declaration but pay little attention to it in practice, and adhere rather to the Islamic version, called the Cairo Declaration.

The Cairo Declaration states that all 57 Muslim countries should abide by the declaration. But it further clarifies that the declaration applies to the “ummah”, i.e. all Muslims all over the world, even in non-Muslim countries. This is noteworthy and remarkable. It is the norm of international treaties and conventions that nations sign up and commit themselves to abide by them. But the Cairo Declaration indirectly nullifies national borders and laws by asserting that the sharia based interpretation of human rights applies to all Muslims regardless of citizenship and country of residence. That means that Islamic laws (and the Cairo Declaration) supersede national laws, in every case and in every place.

The declaration states again and again – in the preamble, in various articles and in the conclusion – that everything is subject to sharia and should be interpreted in light of the Koran and Islamic law. Thus it may mention freedom and rights, but they are restricted according to the Koran and Islamic law.

Article 10 in the Cairo Declaration deals with religious freedom and asserts that there mustn’t be any compulsion in religion – but of course subject to Sharia. But it is a well known fact that those who leave Islam are at risk and quite a few are punished, even by death. Article 18 in the UN Declaration deals with religious freedom and has three main components: The right to have, express and change your faith. But in countries where Islam has a major influence there are definite limitations regarding expressing your beliefs and changing your religion; the latter especially for Muslims. In general Christians are allowed to convert to Islam, but it is illegal and dangerous for a Muslim to leave Islam.

This is what the Cairo Declaration says about freedom of speech: “Everyone shall have the right to express his opinion freely in such manner as would not be contrary to the principles of the Shariah. Everyone shall have the right to advocate what is right, and propagate what is good, and warn against what is wrong and evil according to the norms of Islamic Shariah.”  Thus freedom of speech is interpreted and limited by sharia.

Many surveys measuring various freedoms shows – again and again – that citizens in Muslim countries suffer oppression. They lack basic human rights and freedoms when it comes to politics, media, religion, gender equality, and so forth. One may speak of human rights, but Islamic versions of the same lead to the opposite, as a result of the supremacy of sharia law in Muslim faith and practice globally. This also includes freedom of speech and religion. Thus we need to be aware of similar or same terms that may be filled with different contents.
