An Open Letter to Reza Aslan the Savior of so called Moderate Muslims!

E-mail Print PDF

[For Readers information: On Sunday October 3, 2010, Christiane Amanpour has moderated a live debate “Holy War: Should Americans Fear Islam?” broadcasted fromr ABC in New York City. Participants were: Reverend Franklin Graham, Robert Spencer, Peter Gaiel, Ayan Hirsi Ali, Gary Bauer, Brad Garret (who consider Islam is breeding ground of terrorists) VS. Daisy Khan, Reza Aslan, Imam Ossama Bahloul, Anjam Choudary (Islam4UK), Azar Nafisi, Donna Marsh O’connor (who consider Islam is peaceful and pluralistic religion). This open letter is all about this debate.]


Dear Mr. Reza Aslan:

I am a Bangladeshi-American ex-Muslim and Studying and exploring Islam for the last 20 years. I have never heard any conniving Islamist like you in my entire life. I heard many Islamic Mullahs, Muftis, Imams, Islamic scholars etc, who have been preaching non-existing tolerance & peacefulness of most violent religion Islam futile way, but I found nobody like you. You seems like an all-rounder “Islamic pundit” to me who can fool the whole world with myriad of unadulterated lies about Islam. Below are some vivid examples why I am saying this. Your big-mouth in this above debate was really astounding to me.

In this debate you Mr. Reza Aslan have scored lots of free goals in an empty foot-ball (soccer) field. Fortunately, there were no ex-muslim like me except Ayan Hirsi Ali who was not given chance to refute lots of nonsense and utter lies that you have continuously spewed to fool the western listeners. Among the unadulterated lies and propagandas you have shamelessly spewed are: (a) That, “there are not one type of Islam in the world, there are whole varieties of Islam! Some are more peaceful than the other” (b) Radical Islamists “hijacked” so called peaceful Islam; (c) Saudi Arabia and Iran is not pure Islamic nations and should not be taken as pure Sharia ruled Islamic nations; (d) There are no such thing—one Islam or one interpretation of Sharia, there are good and bad Sharia blah, blah blah! You also mercilessly attacked Reverend Franklin Graham, Dr. Robert Spencer, Ayan Hirsi Ali and others who tried to tell the ‘truth and nothing but the truth’ about Islam and portrayed Islam as the most dangerously intolerant religion western people should fear and be suspicious about. But you have desperately and deliberately tried to confuse all the listeners by your technique of well-known “Islamic deceptions” and utter lies about Islam and Islamic terrorists.

Now, let me ask you some highly relevant and prudent questions:

  1. Could you give me some good reasons and facts why Saudi Arabia and Iran should not be called true model of the pure Islamic Sharia-based countries?
  2. Could you tell me what are the so called wide varieties of Muslims in the world?
  3. Could you tell us how many different Qurans Muslims do follow? Where can we find so called “Pluralistic Islam and Quran” ?
  4. Could you please give me one example of so called “pure Islamic” country in the whole world?
  5. Name one Muslim country where the minorities and women are not suffering from severe persecutions, harassments, and disparity?
  6. Please give the list of various Islamic Sharias (some are good or some are bad!) if you really think they really do exists?
  7. Could you tell me why and how “Islam” has been hijacked by the radical Muslims? Is the Islam any kind of Ship or Plane or Train or single vehicle which can be hijacked? Why Billion Muslims could not protect that “Islamic Ship” from the hands of relatively very small numbers of radical jihadi Muslims?
  8. Finally, let me ask you this: will you debate with me on Islam? I would like to learn about “pure and peaceful” Islam from you!

Truth of the matter is these so called “Radical Muslims” are the only true Muslims who follow Quranic dictums and Sunnah of Prophet Muhamad. And, Saudi Arabia (the birth place of Islam and legal Custodian of two Islamic holy Mosques (Mecca and Madina) is the super pure Sharia-based country in the whole world. Iran also a pure Sharia country with minor deviation that they practice fake election only to bluff the western world. Both are totalitarian despotically ruled Islamic nations on earth, just the way Prophet Muhammad and his rightly guided four Caliphs ruled in 7th century dark days. On the other hand, so called moderate Muslims like you Reza Aslan, Daisy Khan, and Imam Rauf are talking about non-existing peaceful Islam having no support from Quran or Sunnah, or from Islamic Sharia at all. These charlatans have no courage to challenge those so called radical Islamic (hijackers?) jihadis, because if they do their vacuous claims in front of any pure Islamists, or in front of Saudi Kings, or Iranian Mullahs, or Osama Bin Laden—they will be instantly beheaded by the Islamic sword or will be stoned to death. Can you deny this Mr. Reza Aslan? Anjam choudary (Islam4UK) was the only sincere and true Muslim who definitely spoken the real mindset of Islam. I do honor him for his honesty and sincerity.

Now, I as an ex-Muslim who grew-up and lived in the Muslim country for at least 30 years experienced and know about quite different Islam than your imaginary peaceful Islam. To me there is one Islam, one Quran and one Sunnah (traditions left behind by the Prophet Muhammad) and one Sharia (draconian ancient law made out of one Quran and Sunnah) for all Muslims to follow, period. Islamic Sharia in short is: severely anti-women, anti-minorities, anti-people, anti-non-Muslims, and deadly anti-gay and lesbians.

All Muslims (Sunni, Shiite and Ahmadyan) believe the same Quran and same Sunnah and same Sharia. Basically, all Muslims believe the same Quranic teachings and there is no exception at all. Good and pure Muslims (who follow Quran and Sunnah verbatim) can never respect any other religion when they believe that Allah only accept Islam (Quran-3:85) as the pure religion. And Allah also asked Muslims to hate all non-muslims indeed.

To my own experience as muslim, living in the muslim country, and studying about Islam for many years learned that—Islam is the most intolerant and inherently violent religion on Earth. Unlike all the world’s religions—Islam is inherently a pure political ideology only to expand Arab imperialism throughout the whole world. This is the biggest misunderstanding by the westerners in general and American in particular. Islam is way of life and solidly embedded in politics of the land. Truth is, Islam is not just an ordinary religion like Christianity, Judaism or Hinduism which are loaded with spiritual business only! Islam came with the whole package where jihad and politics were integral part.

Islam gets the divine mandate (Dictums of Quran and hadiths) to invite, force, subjugate, and even to fight to kill or convert all other people (Hindus, Boddist, Jews, Christians and un-believers) to bring them under the fold of Islam. This is exactly what is asked by the Islamic Allah. Only after that—Islam means peace! Mr. Graham was damn right about Islamic peace mania. Prudent question is: why prophet Muhammad had to fight 78 bloody offensive battles if Islam was so peaceful religion? You Mr. Aslan and the honorable readers please click here to learn about the real face of Islamic jihad: An Exegesis on 'Jihad in Islam'.

Radical Jihadi Muslims are the pure believers of Quran and Sunnah (Prophetic traditions) and they are Muslims by the book and more radicalized (read: purified) than those who are Muslims due to their birth in the Muslim parents only! Radical Muslims are engaged in “violent jihad” and innocent looking Muslims like you Reza Aslan, Daisy Khan, and Imam Feisal Rauf, and most practicing gullible muslims are engaged in “Stealth Jihad”. Both the radical jihadis and most practicing Muslims (with very little exceptions, of course) are deeply engaged in stealth Jihad. All so called moderate muslims have the same goal of bringing America and the entire West under the fold of Islam. Trully, moderate muslims do not exist; either good Muslims or ignorant Muslims. As the Turkish Prime Minister proudly said: “there is no such thing called “radical Islam” or “moderate Muslims”. Either pure Islam or ignorant bad muslims.” Please remember: all Muslims may not be the terrorist but all terrorists are of course pure Muslims as per the Quran.

For long, dishonest Islamists like you and Imam Rauf have been bluffing and lying to all Westerners who actually do not know that—Islam is way of life and solidly embedded in politics of the land. Separation of state and Mosque is an absurd dream in Islam. Political Islam (Sharia law—made from Koran and Sunnha) is the backbone of the religion of Islam and this draconian law called Shariaat is established firmly in many Muslim nations like Saudi Arabia, Iran, Sudan, Somalia, etc, and many other Muslim nations are also practicing Sharia partially. Radical Islamists in those countries are continuously fighting jihad to establish this draconian Sharia—medieval supremacists evil ideology in full status.

Charlatans like you, Daisy Khan, and Imam Rauf and likes of you—are boastfully bragging USA is a Sharia compliant country. Why do you dream for Sharia (medieval draconian laws) in America? Do you think American laws are anyway inferior to Sharia law? Any so called Sufi and apolitical individual has no business in delving into Sharia business or about Mosque. Sufi-brand of Muslims does not need any Mosque, because Sufi Muslims never pray in the Mosque, they only need a Shrine. Imam Rauf is no Sufi-Muslim by any means! It is the political Islamists (Radical Islamists) who are always concerned about establishing a Mosque wherever they go and always cherish about the draconian Islamic law called: Islamic Sharia (Allah’s Law).

According to Dr. Ali Sina (an Iranian ex-muslim) who said: “Mr. Reza Aslan, so called flag bearer of moderate Islam is a snake oil salesman. He is an agent of the Islamic republic of Iran and a very deceitful Islamist. Iranian Mullahs perhaps implanted this deceiver only to fool American public so he is beating the drum of so called moderate Islam. But stealthily he is lobbying for the Islamists of Iran. Most Iranian-Americans do not like him. Americans should guard themselves from the stealth jihadists like Reza Aslan, Daisy Khan and Imam Rauf in order to save western democracy and western way of life.”

Both you and Christiane Amanpour desperately tried to suppress Reverend Frankilin Graham, Dr. Robert Spencer, Ayan Hirsi Ali and other opponents of Ground Zero Mosque (GZM) in order to white-wash Islam. Fortunately, you failed miserably in this dishonest plot and yet you could not save your so called “peaceful” face of Islam. Honest and sincere Muslim Anjam Choudary did the job for opponents of GZM and ‘Cat is out of the hat’ now. Most tolerant and compassionate Americans must have learned the real face of so called “peaceful Islam” by now! Hopefully, quest of white-washing the inherently violent religion of Islam was utterly failed!

Finally, my open invitation for you to debate in Islam with me is standing tall. I would highly appreciate if you join with me in this debate! Thanks for your patience!

 Sincerely yours,

Syed Kamran Mirza (Ex-Muslim)

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.

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).
