Islam causes poverty

Not to worry:  the world and everything in it belongs to Allah. Killing infidels and spreading their wealth around will fix the problem.

Some Muslim practices cause poverty, Muslim religious leader says

Asia News. it Hat tip TROP

For Ibrahim Musliyar Bekal, the dowry system, the ban on married women working, and frequent desertion by husbands explain indigence in Muslim communities.

New Delhi (AsiaNews) – For Ibrahim Musliyar Bekal, a Muslim religious leader in Karnataka’s Udupi District, the Muslim community is largely to blame for its poverty. After visiting ten families living in abject poverty, he said that some Muslim practices explain widespread underdevelopment.
Bekal, who is Qazi (Kadi, religious judge) in Udupi, said that it “is very important to eradicate the dowry system and other such evils prevailing in the Muslim community”, which undermine “its overall development”.

The dowry system forces families to pay millions of rupees to the groom’s family in order to take in their daughters in marriage. Even though the practice is illegal since the adoption of the Dowry Prohibition Act in 1961, it still shapes people’s mindset and culture.

It should be noted that the dowry system does have a long tradition in India and is not only practiced by Muslims. Over the last 40 years Muslim fathers with many daughters have often sold some of their female offspring to wealthy Sowdi Barbarian sheiks; something I witnessed personally. But that’s another story for another day. (sheik)

Another evil that burdens Muslims is the status of women who, after marriage, are not allowed to work. To illustrate his point, Qazi Ibrahim Musliyar Bekal mentioned the moving case of a family who had two female members become mentally ill after they were deserted by their husbands many years ago. Sadly, he said there are many instances of various forms of abuse that are inflicted upon unfortunate women who end up languishing at home without support.

According to Indian government figures, some 251 people lived below the poverty line in 2005. Of these, 31 per cent was Muslim even though Muslims represent only 13.4 per cent of the population.

  1. Another evil that burdens Muslims is the status of women who, after marriage, are not allowed to work.

    Solution: Stop Being Muslim. If anyone gives you grief, you probably need to kill them immediately upon the first complaint, for they will probably kill you, with a crowd behind them for moral support. Then leave that part of the earth forever.

  2. Cutting off western welfare would be a start..They can only live the way they live in Western countries by living off others in other words by bludging. They have so little pride about making their own way..This can only get worse for young people born into this system.

  3. ‘For Ibrahim Musliyar Bekal, the dowry system, the ban on married women working, and frequent desertion by husbands explain indigence in Muslim communities.’

    Well done , Ibrahim . ( I’m not being sarcastic – it’s nice to find a Muslim who doesn’t mind a little self-criticism – which is the way to evolve )
    Now you have to add to your list of faults in the muslim world .
    There are a lot more .
    In fact , there are so many , why don’t you just give the whole thing up and join the freethinking people in the world – it’s much more fun and
    invigorating .

    The prime burden that Muslims carry is the legacy of Muhammed. It is this that makes Muslims backward people .

    Churchill’s now famous comment ois worth repeating again

    “How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property, either as a child, a wife, or a concubine, must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men. Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities – but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science, the science against which it had vainly struggled, the civilisation of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilisation of ancient Rome.”
    —Sir Winston Churchill, from The River War, first edition, Vol. II, pages 248-50 (London: Longmans, Green & Co., 1899).

  5. Or this one from Churchill’s Frontier Wars

    It was originally propagated by the sword, and ever since, its votaries have been subject, above the people of all other creeds, to this form of madness. In a moment the fruits of patient toil, the prospects of material prosperity, the fear of death itself, are flung aside. The more emotional Pathans are powerless to resist. All rational considerations are forgotten. Seizing their weapons, they become Ghazis–as dangerous and as sensible as mad dogs: fit only to be treated as such. While the more generous spirits among the tribesmen become convulsed in an ecstasy of religious bloodthirstiness, poorer and more material souls derive additional impulses from the influence of others, the hopes of plunder and the joy of fighting. Thus whole nations are roused to arms. Thus the Turks repel their enemies, the Arabs of the Soudan break the British squares, and the rising on the Indian frontier spreads far and wide. In each case civilisation is confronted with militant Mahommedanism. The forces of progress clash with those of reaction.The religion of blood and war is face to face with that of peace. Luckily the religion of peace is usually the better armed.”
    Has anything changed since Churchill wrote these more then a century ago.
