Quran Burning A Live Issue

E-mail Print PDF

It is good for the law and order enforcing agencies that the proposed Quran-burning issue has subsided for the time being. Pastor Terry Jones of the 50-member church that is non-denominational and unattached to an organised Christian body, has deferred the burning issue.The event, however, has not been cancelled as was reported wrongly by a section of the media.

Pastor Terry Jones and Imam Musri of Florida proposed to fly to New York on Saturday, 11th Sept 2010, the Ninth Anniversary of Islamist Terror episode in New York to have a chat with the Imam who is the moving spirit behind the ill-conceived construction of a mosque and an Islamic Centre just two blocks away from Ground Zero. 

The aim of the exercise is to convince the Muslim leaders there to shift the location of the proposed Muslim activity and thus avoid hurting the feelings of those Americans and foreigners who had lost their loved ones on 9/11 in the Islamist terror attack.

The travel plan is fine but the Imam of New York has already taken a stand not to budge an inch on the issue. He is acting like Duryodhan of Mahabharat who was not prepared to concede even land to Pandavas even equivalent to a needle point. Everyone knows that death and destruction followed thereafter.

FLEXIBILITY OF APPROACH

Flexibility of approach to the problem is need of the hour to avoid bloodshed all over the world. Pastor Jones has changed his stand on burning the Quraan which he called an Evil that incited its followers to kill men and women of other faiths, and now wants Muslim leadership in New York to accommodate sentiments of Christians, Hindus, Jewish people and the rest of them all. It is time saner instincts prevailed and the Muslim leadership in New York found a way out of this impasse.

CLASH OF CULTURES

It is not for nothing that almost the entire western comity of nations has turned heat on the rigid Muslim community. In Potsdam, Germany, at a function to felicitate the cartoonist who had caricatured Prophet Muhammad, Sallallah Wasale Wasallum ( PBUH), and where even Chancellor Angela Merkel was present, eminent speakers had criticised the Turkish Muslims settled in Germany for not joining the main stream of German life but remaining secluded in ghettos, keeping their women veiled and not learning the German language. Further,as per reports of the Intelligence services the Islamist terror threat to Germany has increased. Let us ponder over the point that those who threaten other cultures can never be friendly with them. It is advisable for men and women of all faiths to live in peace and shake off prejudices born over a period of time.

The anger of the Muslim community over the proposed burning of Quran may subside if they assimilate lessons of history and atone for sisns of their ancestors who burnt down temples and religious scriptures of Hindus in Asia, Christian churches in Constantinople and converted them into mosques renaming Constantinople as Istanbul.The Muslim invaders ruined the Spanish culture, architecture and enslaved the local Christians until they were all thrown out of Spain after many centuries.

The idea of recalling history is to let leaders of all Faiths understand the Muslim problem in historical perspective and let the Muslim leaders introspect to prevent a repetition of what had happened earlier. Thus the growing inimosity may be reduced and the people who have become radical Muslims retrace their steps to reach the goal of peace and tranquility.

The Vedic philosophy of Vasudhaiv Kutumbakam - the world as a Family - should be adopted by all huiman beings so that hatred is replaced with love. Should there be any preachers of hatred and animosity, they must be shunned by all right thinking men and women. Let one and all join the main stream of life in the country they live in.

LIVE AND LET LIVE

Unfortunately the Muslim minority in almost all countries tries to bulldoze its way through threats of violence.

Whenever the local police acts as per law and stops their hooliganism, the policemen are accused of excesses against a minority and even of molestation of Muslim women. The false accusations land the police officers in a mess as they have to face the human rights commission every now and then. Since this tactics is paying dividends, the Muslim minority is adopting it to browbeat the administration. If the law enforcing agencies turn Nelson's eye to the anti-national activities of the Muslim minority then mass murders like the one on 9/11 takes place. Moral of the story is : Act tough and Face the Music.

On an introspection a neutral observer will find that in almost all disputes in the world today, one party is comprises Muslims. now to bring in peace in the world, the moderate men and women from amongst the Muslim community have to assert themselves and say Shut up to the radical Islamist groups.

Let all sides to the dispute think of Peace and Act for Peace.

Lest We Forget the Battle of Tours

History - Violent Jihad

Australians celebrate and revere Anzac Day on April 25th each year in remembrance of our brave soldiers who fought in two great world wars to secure our freedom. Every Australian identifies with the slogan “lest we forget” and in services held around the country people reflect on the battles and men who died to secure our freedom. Yet across the world in France, there is one remarkable battle which helped form the Europe we know today and allowed the development of civilization based on Judeo Christian principles. This one famous battle has become known as the battle of Tours and effectively stopped the Muslim advance into Europe. After the death of Mohammed in 632AD, Muslim armies exploded out of the Arabian peninsula to conquer much of the Middle East, expanding across north Africa. From there they crossed into Spain in 711AD and eventually controlled much of al-Andalus by 715AD. It was the victory at Tours by Charles Martel that stemmed the tide and eventually the Muslim marauders were expelled from Spain in 1492 when the last outpost at Granada fell to King Ferdinand of Spain.

Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj was born, lived, fought and won battles against religious and social oppression in the 17th century Bharat or India. He was a shining star in the Indian firmament and is renowned as a champion of the downtrodden and depressed masses. He was and continues to be an icon for the classes and masses alike and is seen as a rallying point for peasants oppressed by foreign rulers, Pathans and Moghuls alike. Sexually exploited women found in Shivaji Raje a protector, a benefactor and flocked to his Hindavi Swaraj to find solace and feel liberated under his saffron flag.

Perhaps some readers might be interested to know that January 28 is considered a feast day among Catholics – actually 2 feast days are celebrated on the same day – one is of ST Thomas Aquinas, the great medieval theologian and philosopher who adapted Aristotle to the western Judeo-Christian worldview. . It is also the feast day of a lesser known person – St Peter Nolasco, the great ransomer of captives from the Muslims.

Barbary Corsair
Somalian Islamic Pirates & Lessons from History
 
The dramatic rescue of the American cargo-ship captain Richard Phillips from the hands of Somalian Islamic pirates by the U.S. Navy—killing three pirates, holding him hostage at gun-point, through precision-targeting—warrants a review of the U.S. struggle with piracy and hostage-taking in North Africa, which ended two centuries ago.

Raiding trade-caravans and hostage-taking for extracting ransom in Islam was started by Prophet Muhammad. Having become powerful and secure after his relocation to Medina from Mecca in 622, Muhammad initiated Jihad or holy war in the form of raids of trade-caravans for earning livelihood for his community. In the first successful raid of a Meccan caravan at Nakhla in December 623, his brigands killed one of the attendants, took two of them captive, and acquired the caravan as “sacred” booty. The captives were ransomed to generate further revenue. Muhammad, later on, expanded this mode of Jihad to raiding non-Muslim communities around Arabia—for capturing their homes, properties and livestock, capturing their women and children as slaves often for ransoming and selling, and imposing extortional taxes—which sometimes involved mass-slaughter of the attacked victims.

Battle of Broken Hill Logo
 
The First Islamic Terrorist Attack on Australian Soil
 
On January 1, 1915 two Broken Hill men, both former camel drivers, armed themselves with rifles, an homemade flag bearing Islamic insignia and a large supply of ammunition and launched a surprise attack on the Picnic Train about 3 kilometres outside Broken Hill.

The train carried about 1200 Broken Hill residents to Silverton where a picnic to celebrate the new year was to take place.

The two Muslim men, Gool Mohamed originally a Pashtun tribesman from Afghanistan and Mullah Abdullah from what is known today as Pakistan, decided to wage jihad against Australian infidels after Australia and the Ottoman Empire officially joined the opposite sides in the WWI.

Jihad Galore and the Toledo Whore

Battle of Higueruela

Alhambra - GazelleHow often in conversation with a Muslim, do they quote Spain as the crowning achievement of Islam, where Muslims, Jews and Christians lived in harmony for about 800 years?

And when you mention the killings and massacres, you are told that the Spanish Inquisition was much worse.
This is a misconception, since the Inquisition in Spain was responsible for only between 4,000 and 5,000 lives. [1]

Yet in 1066AD, in a single day, muslims murdered over 4,000 Jews because Vizier Joseph ibn Naghrela had risen to a position greater than them, and of course, this upset the Muslim sensitivities. [2]

Decisive Victory for the West

At this time of year, it is timely to remember one of the greatest victories of the west against the Islamic world. On the 7th October in 1571, Don Juan and the Holy League, led by Admiral Doria, defeated the larger Ottoman fleet in the Battle of Lepanto, saving Europe from the Turks and militant Islam. The Holy League was a coalition of different armies - of the Republic of Venice, the Papacy (under Pope Pius V), Spain (including Naples, Sicily and Sardinia), the Republic of Genoa, the Duchy of Savoy, the Knights Hospitaller and some others.

Jerusalem - Coat of ArmsWhy do Muslims insist that Jerusalem is their Holy City?
When Mohamed and his faithful followers moved from Mecca to Medina, they found themselves among three Jewish tribes/clans (BANU-L-NADIR, BANU KAINUKA and BANU KURAIZA)  which settled there some time after their expulsion from their homeland and also living there were  two Arab, pagan tribes.

Mohammed, who at this stage needed more followers, decided to win those tribes over and convert them to his newly invented religion.

Islam was yet not as fully developed as we know it today, and Mohammed was still having his sessions with Allah (the Medina period revelations).

In the post 9/11 era of this modern-world, Islamists around the globe are busy with ‘damage control utopia’ in order to correct the image of religion Islam. We all know that the nucleus of Islam are: Quran, Hadiths (Sunnah) supported by Islamic histories and biographies recorded by various famous Islamic scholars and historians.
