Many times it was pointed out here that Non Muslims in Islamic countries are facing discrimination and persecution and also that their numbers are dropping in all Islamic countries. One of the ways of persecuting and humiliating infidels is targeting of their women, kidnap and convert their women in to Islam. In Pakistan, Bangladesh and Egypt it is an ongoing phenomenon. This pattern is just another version of Islamic Jihad, to be waged against infidels. The latest incident to be reported is a 13 year old Hindu girl being kidnapped and converted to Islam.
The above mentioned incident is not an isolated one by any stretch. If one is interested in knowing further on this kind, read from the below links.
At least 25 Hindu Girls Abducted Every Month in the Islamic State of Pakistan (An activist and council member of the Human Rights Commission of Pakistan, Amarnath Motumal, stated that at least 20 to 25 girls are abducted and converted to Islam against their will every single month. Hindus are targetted due to many local muslims seeing them as kafirs(non-Muslims) and therefore of lower class as well as evil.)
Hindu Girl Held in Madrassa and Forced to Convert to Islam (A Punjabi Hindu girl from Pakistan has been kidnapped and is being held in a madrassa where she is being forced to convert to Islam. This has been brought to attention by leading Pakistani activist Ansar Burney.) This same incident is reported in our Media too!!!
57 Pakistani Hindus convert to Islam ‘under pressure’ (About 50 Hindus convert to Islam to escape the ever increasing discrimination and to save their jobs.)
A New Wave of Pakistani Hindus and Sikhs Fleeing to India (Pakistani Hindus are petrified after the recent chain of kidnappings of Sikhs and Hindus by the Pakistani-based Taliban group.... Many Pakistani Hindus are now applying for visa’s to escape to India to flee the chaotic Islamic state of Pakistan.... Nenuram Gomad Ram, another passenger of a train said “The Taliban had launched a campaign to convert the Hindus into Islam. The Hindus who resist were subject to torture and even killing. That is the reason the visa application for India has increased manifold in recent times.” To get out of these hard times, many Hindus are desperately applying for Indian visas.....The Indian home ministry had reportedly stated visa restrictions for the number of Pakistani Hindus and Sikhs to be allowed into the country because of the threat associated with any type of immigration into India from Pakistan. If such restrictions are not made, they claim, it will be much easier for Pakistani terrorists to enter India. Or the fear that these people will vote for some party or a threat to so called Indian secularism.)
Hindus in Pakistan – A People Without a Voice (Not only are Pakistani Hindus a people without a voice but also a people without an identity or existence to the outside world. Most people are not even aware of the fact that about 2.5 million Hindus (about 2% of the total population according to the last census but this number is decreasing rapidly due to fear and is soon expected to be less than 1% ) exist in the Muslim majority Pakistan. The dwindling numbers of Pakistani Hindus are the result of a quiet and steady cultural genocide in a state that has little ’Separation of Church and State’.....Just before the end of colonial rule and independence in 1947, the land, which is now Pakistan comprised of about 26% Hindus out of its total population. However, after the partition of India, the largest forced migration in human history resulted, during which large scale massacres took place. Unfortunately, the 26% had dropped down to only 15% Hindus in Pakistan.)
Ensure human rights protection of a minority rape victim in Pakistan (Approximately 25-30 minority women are kidnapped, raped, and forcibly converted in Pakistan every month. You have the power to change that. With your signature, we can change conditions for the poor, the disenfranchised, the minorities, and indentured laborers in Pakistan. Without basic human rights, without legal protection, and an invisible entity to the government of Pakistan, these minority women suffer inhuman abuses including rape, abduction, conversion, and intimidation...........Some time back an online petition was forwarded to Pakistan Govt. on behalf of victims. When this was put up in many websites and blogs by this blog author and some other people, required target of 1000 could not be reached.)

COPTIC girls being abducted (Ten years ago, I was in Egypt interviewing Coptic Christians who described how persecution by Muslims had become a way of life for them. The situation is worse now because of increased abductions of Coptic girls, who are forced into a sham marriage with a Muslim, raped, forced to convert to Islam and separated for good from their families.
These are girls as young as 12 who are being grabbed off Egyptian streets. Photos are taken while the girl is being raped to blackmail her into converting, says Mary Abdelmassih, a Coptic activist.)
What is it that makes Islamists to act in such hatred and cruel manner? One simple and accurate answer is how Islamic theology looks at infidels as vermin. Koran, a book believed fanatically to be infallible word of Allah by Muslims, simply tells them they (Muslims) are best and superior and others (non-Muslims) are inferior. Koran preaches this kind of feeling of superiority to Muslims in about 60 verses. The worth of life of Non Muslims is simply not same as worth of life of a Muslim; and the best evidence for this Islamic belief is their own Sharia law.
Of many things Islam says about infidels (always negative), one such is that infidels are unclean and nasty. The Arabic word used for this is najis and Arabic to English dictionary says Najis means filthy or unclean or nasty. Ten najis according to an Islamic website (and here) are as follows:
1. Urine. 2. Faeces. 3. Blood. 4. Dead Body. 5. Semen. 6. Dogs. 7. Pigs. 8. Kafirs. 9. Alcohol. 10. The sweat of certain animals.And of course, Koran itself says that infidels (idolaters) are unclean (verse 9:28).
SHAKIR (9:028): O you who believe! the idolaters are nothing but unclean, so they shall not approach the Sacred Mosque after this year; and if you fear poverty then Allah will enrich you out of His grace if He please; surely Allah is Knowing Wise.After depicting infidels as inferior and filthy, like sub humans, on top these it(Koran) also says by default i.e. by disbelief in Islam, they are bad, vilest of creatures and enemies of Allah. So, Non Muslims are bad subhuman.
For Muslims who believe that Koran spoke truth, it is pleasing and sweetening to hear that they are wise ones, they are the best, they are right and they are the superiors. This propaganda of 60 verses saying Muslims are the best is also the foundation to turn Muslims in to fanatics or exclusivists.
And then, about 20 verses command Muslims to avoid friendship with Non Muslims as they are evil and their lives are satanic. This group of verses are the softest commands in Koran on how Muslims feel and deal with non Muslims i.e. not to make friendship.
Note. My earlier count of these verses is just 10 or 12. But I picked up some more from Koran gradually.
Then there is Jihad, a very legal and the most important institution in Islamic theology. In the entire Koran, whenever this word is mentioned, it is only with respect to warfare and violence against Kafirs. In the Hadith of Sahih Bukhari, the most important in Islam, 97% of references to Jihad are about warfare and only 3% is of peaceful nature. The best evidence of Jihad as warfare against infidels also comes from Islamic law books and all four major schools of Sunni agree on this, advocating all out warfare against infidels to impose Sharia or convert them to Islam.
As usual, Muslims keep giving trite explanations that Islam does not permit this kind of atrocities and in fact it even offers protection to Non Muslims. Yes, we have seen this Islamic protection as it exists in their law book (Sharia law), an euphemism for discrimination and subjugation, and if Muslims saying those kind of laws are protection, one need not be surprised at above mentioned acts. But the fact is when Muslims fanatically believe in dichotomy of Muslims as superior and others as bad sub humans, this kind is bound to happen because those committing this kind of atrocities are feeling it is their religious duty and as a proof of devotion (submission) to Allah. More over for these kinds of acts, they will be admitted in to paradise with beautiful girls and young boys waiting from them, they fanatically believe.
But why commit this kind of atrocities against women? To understand this, it will help to know the position of women in Islam itself and what kind of acts Mohammad himself committed, because Muslims are commanded to follow the example of Mohammad in their life. Giving full details about position of women in Islam is not possible here but some incidents involving Mohammad and slavery are worth knowing.
Koran makes it clear that men are above women and also that they are guardians of women. This sanctioning of inequality can be seen in the fact that Islam allows man to have four wives. It even says husbands can even beat wives. It is like at every point of life, women belong to men. Another note worthy thing is the dual effect it (kidnapping of infidel women) has on population of infidels just like Jizya: Populations and culture of infidels erodes gradually while Muslims keep increasing in number. One of the obsessions of Islam is about increasing their numbers esp. when Muslims are in minority in a country like India as one can see from following ahadith.
Woman has a religious duty to produce the maximum number of children; The Prophet said "Getting married is my basic doctrine. Who so does not follow my example, is not my follower. Marry, so that I can claim preference over other communities (Jews and Christians) owing to commanding a greater number of followers." (Ibn-e-Majah, Vol. 1, page 518 and 523 in his sunan Ibn Majah, last of 6 canonical Hadith in Sunni Islam)
“On the Day of Judgement, I shall have the greater number of followers than any other prophet….. “. (Mishkat al-Masabih, Vol. 3, page 119)
The above passage should explain why Muslims in India oppose and say family planning is against their religion. Another important aspect is the way Islam treats sex and slavery e.g. if some Muslim males don’t have money to have or maintain four wives, they can have sex with slaves. Yes! The true word of God does not ban slavery and even legalizes the sex with victims; in fact it is due to Islam that institution of slavery has worsened in medieval times. So Muslim men can, not only keep women has slaves but can even have sex with them as the following verse says:
YUSUFALI (004:024): Also (prohibited are) women already married, except those whom your right hands possess: Thus hath Allah ordained (Prohibitions) against you:…….
PICKTHAL: And all married women (are forbidden unto you) save those (captives) whom your right hands possess…….This verse was specifically reveled to say that men can have sex with women, who became slaves on their capture in war even if women were married and their husbands are alive. Read on this from Ibn Kathir's tafsir:
The Ayah means, you are prohibited from marrying women who are already married, except those whom you acquire through war, for you are allowed such women after making sure they are not pregnant. Imam Ahmad recorded that Abu Sa`id Al-Khudri said, "We captured some women from the area of Awtas who were already married, and we disliked having sexual relations with them because they already had husbands. So, we asked the Prophet about this matter, and this Ayah was revealed. Consequently, we had sexual relations with these women.And verses 23:05-06 and 70:29-30 also say the same thing. According to Islamic law when a married woman is taken as a captive and slave her marriage immediately gets annulled.
It is a common practice during the days of Mohammad to raid and to make war and then to take woman as sex slaves. He himself took beautiful women as slaves. Some of these incidents are presented below.
After the battle of Khaibar, Mohammad took a slave girl named Saafiya after killing her husband brutally. Read the following ahadiths:
(Narrated Anas) The Prophet offered the Fajr Prayer near Khaibar when it was still dark and then said, "Allahu-Akbar! Khaibar is destroyed, for whenever we approach a (hostile) nation (to fight), then evil will be the morning for those who have been warned." Then the inhabitants of Khaibar came out running on the roads. The Prophet had their warriors killed, their offspring and woman taken as captives. Safiya was amongst the captives, She first came in the share of Dahya Alkali but later on she belonged to the Prophet . The Prophet made her manumission as her 'Mahr'. (Sahih Bukhari; Vol. 5 Book 59 #512)
(Narrated 'Abdul 'Aziz) Anas said ……….. We conquered Khaibar, took the captives, and the booty was collected. Dihya came and said, 'O Allah's Prophet! Give me a slave girl from the captives.' The Prophet said, 'Go and take any slave girl.' He took Safiya bint Huyai. A man came to the Prophet and said, 'O Allah's Apostles! You gave Safiya bint Huyai to Dihya and she is the chief mistress of the tribes of Quraiza and An-Nadir and she befits none but you.' So the Prophet said, 'Bring him along with her.' So Dihya came with her and when the Prophet saw her, he said to Dihya, 'Take any slave girl other than her from the captives.' Anas added: The Prophet then manumitted her and married her."
Thabit asked Anas, "O Abu Hamza! What did the Prophet pay her (as Mahr)?" He said, "Her self was her Mahr for he manumitted her and then married her." Anas added, "While on the way, Um Sulaim dressed her for marriage (ceremony) and at night she sent her as a bride to the Prophet . (Sahih Bukhari ; Book 1, # 367)Actually she was the wife of treasurer of that tribe and this is how Mohammad tortured him and killed him: (Ibn Ishaq on page 515)
Kinana b. al-Rabi', who had the custody of the treasure of the B. al-Nadir, was brought to the apostle who asked him about it. He denied that he knew where it was. A Jew came to the apostle and said that he had seen Kinana going round a certain ruin every morning early. When the apostle [Muhammad] said to Kinana, 'Do you know that if we find you have it I shall kill you?' he said Yes. The apostle gave orders that the ruin was to be excavated and some of the treasure was found. When he asked him about the rest he refused to produce it, so the apostle (Muhammad) gave orders to al-Zubayr b. al-'Awwam, 'Torture him until you extract what he has,' so he kindled a fire with flint and steel on his chest until he was nearly dead. Then the apostle delivered him to Muhammad b. Maslama and he struck off his head in revenge for his brother Mahmud.And (Ibn Ishaq on page 516 and 517)
When the apostle married Safiya in Khaybar or on the way, she having been beautified and combed, and got in a fit state for the apostle by Umm Sulaym d. Milhan mother of Anas b. Malik, the apostle passed the night with her in a tent of his. Abu Ayyub, Khalid b. Zayd brother of B. al-Najjar passed the night girt with his sword, guarding the apostle and going round the tent until in the morning the apostle saw him and asked him what he meant by his action. He replied, ‘I was afraid for you with this woman for you have killed her father, her husband, and her people, and till recently she was in unbelief, so I was afraid for you on her account.’ They allege that the apostle said ‘O God, preserve Abu Ayyub as he spent the night preserving me.’Apply the minimum commonsense in to this and one will get the picture that he raped her the day he took her as captive. If Mohammad married on the way and then consummated the marriage, why someone thinks he needs protection at all? Protection is needed when you are close to enemy. The truth is that Mohammad had sex with her on the day of her capture and then he married her after she converted. But then can this be called as marriage at all? Even considering Mohammad consummated the marriage on the way, so soon after killing her husband and relatives, can this be called understanding and merciful? That too by a man considered as an example for entire mankind for all time! Other thing was does she have any option? Here choices were between slavery and what Mohammad proposed if at all she was given choice.
Another example of Mohammad; this one takes place after defeating Jews of Banu Mustaliq:
(Narrated Aisha, Ummul Mu'minin) Juwayriyyah, daughter of al-Harith ibn al-Mustaliq, fell to the lot of Thabit ibn Qays ibn Shammas, or to her cousin. She entered into an agreement to purchase her freedom. She was a very beautiful woman, most attractive to the eye.
Aisha said: She then came to the Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) asking him for the purchase of her freedom. When she was standing at the door, I looked at her with disapproval. I realised that the Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) would look at her in the same way that I had looked.
She said: Apostle of Allah, I am Juwayriyyah, daughter of al-Harith, and something has happened to me, which is not hidden from you. I have fallen to the lot of Thabit ibn Qays ibn Shammas, and I have entered into an agreement to purchase of my freedom. I have come to you to seek assistance for the purchase of my freedom.
The Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) said: Are you inclined to that which is better? She asked: What is that, Apostle of Allah? He replied: I shall pay the price of your freedom on your behalf, and I shall marry you.
She said: I shall do this. She (Aisha) said: The people then heard that the Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) had married Juwayriyyah……… (Abu Dawood, Book 29, Number 3920)Look at another ahadith regarding what kind of advice Prophet gives to his followers after battle of Mustaliq:
(Narrated Ibn Muhairiz)I entered the Mosque and saw Abu Said Al-Khudri and sat beside him and asked him about Al-Azl (i.e. coitus interruptus). Abu Said said, "We went out with Allah's Apostle for the Ghazwa (battle at which Mohammad was present) of Banu Al-Mustaliq and we received captives from among the Arab captives and we desired women and celibacy became hard on us and we loved to do coitus interruptus. So when we intended to do coitus interruptus, we said, 'How can we do coitus interruptus before asking Allah's Apostle (Mohammad) who is present among us?" We asked (him) about it and he said, 'It is better for you not to do so, for if any soul (till the Day of Resurrection) is predestined to exist, it will exist." (Sahih Bukhari, Vol 5, Book 59, # 459)
(Narrated Abu Said Al-Khudri)We got female captives in the war booty and we used to do coitus interruptus with them. So we asked Allah's Apostle (Mohammad) about it and he said, "Do you really do that?" repeating the question thrice, "There is no soul that is destined to exist but will come into existence, till the Day of Resurrection." (Sahih Bukhari, Vol 7, Book 62, # 137)Here coitus interruptus means withdrawing penis prior to ejaculation so that woman will not be impregnated. They wanted to do this because they feared impregnating will reduce the price when they try to sell or ransom these captured people (slaves) in the market. Did Mohammad say do not rape the captives? No. Or was he admonishing them for having sex? No.
Read another ahadith from Sahih Muslim regarding the so called tolerant nature of Mohammad and his companions:
……Among them was a woman from Banu Fazara. She was wearing a leather coat. With her was her daughter who was one of the prettiest girls in Arabia. I drove them along until I brought them to Abu Bakr who bestowed that girl upon me as a prize. So we arrived in Medina. I had not yet disrobed her when the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) met me in the street and said: Give me that girl, O Salama. I said: Messenger of Allah, she has fascinated me. I had not yet disrobed her. When on the next day. the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) ag;tin met me in the street, he said: O Salama, give me that girl, may God bless your father. I said: She is for you. Messenger of Allah! By Allah. I have not yet disrobed her. The Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) sent her to the people of Mecca, and surrendered her as ransom for a number of Muslims who had been kept as prisoners at Mecca. (Sahih Muslim, Book 19, # 4345)The way Muslims killed the Governess of this tribe, Um Kifa, tells a lot about Mohammad and his co-murderers (reference):
Um Kirfa and her gorgeous daughter were captured by Mohammad's followers. Muslims were against the idea of a woman governing a tribe as Mohammad said “A nation headed by a woman shall never succeed” so they tortured her alive by tying her legs to two different camels running in opposite directions, tearing Um Kirfa in two.
They then chopped up her body and presented her head as a gift to Mohammad in Medina. Mohammad ordered that Um Kirfa’s head be shown throughout the streets of Medina to teach people a lesson. Mohammad gave his uncle Hoozan bin Abi Wahab the daughter of Um Kirfa to entertain himself.And Mohammad’s mercy and morality has no parallel in the history of mankind, Muslims wanted us to believe this. But check this on his morality:
After the battle of Hunain and At-Taif, from his share of captive women, Prophet Mohammed gave his son-in-law, Ali a slave girl, Raytah bt Hilal to enjoy her at his will. He also presented Uthman b. Affan, his son-in-law, another slave girl Zainab b. Hayan, and bestowed another girl (name unknown) to his father in-law Omar Ibn Khattab. Omar gave that girl to his son Abdullah. Most of Prophet’s other elite companions received slave girls as gifts. (The History of Tabari, Volume 8, Page 29-30)All three people mentioned above went on to become Caliphs later in the order of Omar, Uthman and Ali.
But most gruesome of all was massacre of Jews of Banu Quraiza, when they surrendered to him. After beheading 600 Jewish adult men (the criteria used to identify whether one was adult was pubic hair and its start of growth.) in the market place of Medina where trenches were dug for this. Ibn Ishaq mentions people suggested that the actual head count might even be 900.
Now the apostle distributed the property of the Banu Qurayza, as well as their women and children, to the Muslims, reserving one‑fifth for himself….. The apostle dispatched an emissary to Najd with the prisoners, to barter them as slaves in exchange for horses and camels….. The apostle of Allah selected one of the Jewish women, Rayhana, for himself, and she remained with him as his slave until she died. He had suggested marriage to her, that she should wear the veil (to separate her from all other persons, as his wives did), but she replied, 'Rather allow me to remain thy slave; it will be more easy for me, and for thee.' (Ibn Ishaq, page 466)Islamic history starting from Mohammad is full of blood and it is pullulated with this kind of macabre, pogroms and slavery and taking women as sex slaves.
If one thinks these stopped with Prophet or these Islamic sources (I quoted from the most authentic Islamic sources) are spurious, it is sufficient to mention that his followers dutifully followed him taking inspiration from these scriptures and his deeds. We were told of Akbar’s tolerance of Hindus in his time. But read this from MA Khan’s book ‘Islamic Jihad: Legacy of Forced conversions Inperialism and Slavery (Page 103):
His (Akbar’s) frustrated advisor, freethinker Abul Fazl, says in Akbar Nama that ‘many evil hearted and vicious officers used to proceed to the villages and mahals to sack them.’ In these sackings, normally the women and children were driven away.
In Akbar’s reign, affirms Moreland, ‘It became a fashion to raid a village or a group of villages without any obvious justification, and carry off the inhabitants as slaves.’ (Moreland WH (1995), India at the Death of Akbar, Low Price Publications, New Delhi, page 92)
It is no wonder then that Abdulla Khan Uzbeg, a general of Akbar, had boastfully declared: ‘I made prisoners of five lacs (500,000) of men and women and sold them. They all became Muhammadans. From their progeny, there will be crores by the Day of Judgment.’ (Lal (1994), page 73)If above is tolerance of Akbar's time, one can imagine how the intolerance would be. Finally, read from the Auto Biography of Timur Lane (Malfuzat—i—Timuri), on his reasons for his invasion of India in which he left a trail of destruction:
About this time there arose in my heart the desire to lead an expedition against the infidels, and to become a ghazi; for it had reached my ears that the slayer of infidels is a ghazi, and if he is slain he becomes a martyr. It was on this account that I formed this resolution, but I was undetermined in my mind whether I should direct my expedition against the infidels of China or against the infidels and polytheists of India. In this matter I sought an omen from the Qur'an, and the verse I opened upon [Q66:9] was this, 'O Prophet, make war upon infidels and unbelievers, and treat them with severity.' My great officers told me that the inhabitants of Hindustan were infidels and unbelievers. In obedience to the order of Almighty Allah I ordered an expedition against them (Elliot and Dowson, A History of India, Vol. 3, pp. 394—395).What is happening in present day Islamic countries is neither new nor it will stop for it has precedents in time of Prophet Mohammad and has the divine sanction. More over, it is enough to say that the very presence of infidels and their culture is an affront to Islam and Muslims as Koran says in the verse 8:39:
Al-Hilali (8:39): And fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief and polytheism: i.e. worshipping others besides Allâh) and the religion (worship) will all be for Allâh Alone [in the whole of the world]. But if they cease (worshipping others besides Allâh), then certainly, Allâh is All-Seer of what they do.The violent verses exhorting Muslims to wage war against Non Muslims for eternity are in comport with what Koran says about and how it describes infidels. It is very nature of exclusivity of Islam, direct result of such descriptions of infidels, that is responsible for this kind of acts against infidels, not some misunderstanding of Koran or Islamic extremism or Islamic radicalism. Allah’s detestation of infidels is so high that he rewards Muslims, who kidnap, murder and rape infidels, with paradise filled with virgins and young boys for eternity.
