Court barred President from Pardoning Asia Bibi; Is this the case of few people misunderstanding Islam?

Latest news in the tragedy of Asia Bibi, a Christian woman, mother of five children, in Pakistan who was sentenced to death on charges of insulting Islam, is that a Court has barred President pardoning her i.e. death sentence given earlier by a lower court stands and the whole case is still sub-judice. All this takes place after protests and criticism from human rights activists in Pakistan and from the world against this blasphemy law. To be fair, she still has chance because court can still overrule the earlier verdict.

A Muslim kills his daughter for she wanted to marry a Hindu boy; Islam sanctions Honor killings.

Many times, it is written here how Islamic law, derived from Koran and deeds of Mohammad, Prophet of Islam, makes one way traffic laws. A Muslim man can marry Non Muslim women and raise their kids as Muslims but a Muslim woman can not marry a Non Muslim man. In Sharia law, such person (Non Muslim man) is punishable by death. Similarly A Muslim can not convert to another religion and if anyone does he has to be killed; but Muslims are obliged to convert others to Islam. More ruthlessly, Islam allows parents killing their children if they think they are deviating from Islamic practices and beliefs i.e sanctifies honor killings.

Islamic Extremists in Pakistan oppose President pardoning Asia Bibi.

The struggle of Asia Bibi, a Christian woman who was sentenced to death for blasphemy in Pakistan, is testimony to the fact that how little effective or nil so called Muslim moderates in Islamic nations will be. Have we seen any demonstrations being held by Muslims anywhere in the world protesting against this kind of treatment to an innocent woman? No. Where is that outrage one usually sees when Muslims feel their religion is being unfairly targeted for criticism?

I put up some pictures related to 26/11 but one can watch many pictures from the above website and links are provided below.

26/11, Mumbai terrorist attacks, is for making India an Islamic republic!

What do we call people who do not learn from past or refuse to learn from past? What are the reasons for reticence and nonchalant attitude on part of Indian (Hindu) academia or journalists (though this later group was exposed again with tapes of Barkha Dutt and Vir Sanghvi) towards Islamic extremism? Or is it the belief that all religions are same and Islamic extremism is just reactionary to non existent Hindu-RSS fascism thus, if we are nice and accommodative to Muslims aspirations (it never occurs to the proponents of this view that Islam  subjugating every other is Muslims ultimate aspiration) Islamic extremism just fades away? Or is it the belief that terrorism has no religion? Or is it cognitive dissonance with respect to Islam being fascist?

Learn Islamic spirituality from this picture.

I am not sure about whether to keep this picture here or not.

In celebrating Bakrid, Muslims all over the world sacrifice animals (cow is favorite of Muslims in India; because Cow is held as holy by Hindus.) to show their submission to Allah. This orgy is based on biblical story which Mohammad could not copy it accurately. In Old Testament and Bible, God asks Abraham to sacrifice his son Isaac for him and when Abraham gets ready to slay his son, God pleased with his devotion changes his mind and says it was not needed. According to Bible and Old Testament, Abraham has two sons Isaac and Ishamel. But in Koran, it was Ishamel who was shown to be sacrified, not Isaac. But who is wrong here? Who cares? Because, this concept of the god asking a father to slay his son for him and the father getting ready to do it is ridiculous; this makes both the God and the Father very very bad. But why Christians and Jews do not celebrate this event and only Muslims do? Because, sacrificing animals was very much a pre Islamic pagan ritual too.

Now Triple Talaq on a Cell Phone! Evil Triple Talaq has basis in Sunna.

Islam is stupidity and barbaric; its law are stupid and inhuman. Then what can one expect from Islamic law when it was based on one demented man's teachings, who was obsessed with himself. The point that is addressed here is whether this cruel and inhuman law of triple talaq was invented later by Ulema or it has foundation in Koran and Sunna i.e. related to Prophet Mohammad directly.

Sharia Law on Non Muslims.

How does Sharia law treat Non Muslims? The answer to this also answers the question what Islam says about Non Muslims. This is also the reason why all non Muslims should know about Islam and its nuances if they care about  future. 

One of the four schools of Sunni Islam is Shafi'i school. 'Umdat as-Salik wa 'Uddat an-Nasik is the manual of their law book which was translated in to English by an American Muslim  Nuh Ha Mim Keller under the title ‘Reliance of the Traveller and Tools of the Worshipper’. In short it is called ‘Reliance of the Traveller’. This translation was approved by Al-Azhar University, the most authoritative institute in the Sunni branch of Islam.

Prophet to Pagans, while in Mecca, "I will bring slaughter to you"; Muslims Call this Tolerance and Non Violent

When media was reporting about spate of fatwas being issued by Deobandi Islamic clerics, in June and July, an Indian Muslimah realizing that these kind of reports could create a misconception and bad opinion of Islam in public, but not as such worried about those fatwas and about those who issued them, wrote an article; our media always eager to show real Islam, they believe to be or wanted it to be, happily published this article. This is what author, Ms. Sadia Dehlvi, wrote in that article; an excerpt from it:
“Interestingly, two-thirds of the Quran was revealed in the Meccan phase before the Prophet's migration to Medina. The Meccan revelations largely consist of spiritual narratives calling Muslims to non-violent resistance. This took place at a time when Muslim men and women were being tortured and killed for no reason other than accepting Islam. Soumayya, a woman who was tortured to death under the blazing sun, became the first martyr of Islam.
This is what many Muslims and their apologists say, interesting that these people do not substantiate by giving credible evidence, in order to justify what took place later in Medina. Nevertheless this type of erroneous information, if not out right lies (only in this case), has its effects on people’s thinking.

Hindu-Muslim inter religious marriages! (Video) ( 2 )

Note: I was sent some more links and I am adding them in this post. (Nov., 10th, 2010).

Actually the video is about a Sikh family, living in UK, narrating their experience. This was sent by a friend and asked to be included or added to my earlier post on Hindu Muslim Marriages. But I felt that after watching and listening to this video, I decided to put this up in a separate post, here:

Muslims Favorite Verse to win over Non Muslims: To you be your religion, and to me my religion (Islam).

When I was relatively new to Islamic doctrines i.e. yet to complete the reading of Koran, I was participating in a discussion in a forum on the topic of persecution of religious minorities in Bangladesh; a woman from Bangladesh wrote, quoting a verse from Koran, proudly that Islam is a religion which teaches “to you be your religion, and to me my religion (Islam)” to showcase Islamic tolerance towards others and that there was never any compulsion in religion in Islamic theology and history.
