Pineapple Muhammad

Atheists kicked out of UK college fair for displaying ‘blasphemous Mohammed pineapple’

“Either the pineapple goes or you do”.

Londonistan, Oct. 5 (ANI): A group of atheist students were thrown out of their fresher’s fair in London because they displayed a pineapple labelled ‘Mohammed’ on their stall.

The Reading University’s Atheist, Humanist and Secularist Society (RAHS) said they wanted to celebrate free speech and promote their upcoming debate Should we respect religion?’

But they were ordered to remove the offending fruit by union staff who said their actions were causing ‘distress’ to a number of Muslim students and other societies.  RAHS refused to remove the fruit, citing that they had labelled the pineapple after the Islamic prophet to ‘encourage discussion about blasphemy, religion, and liberty’.

“We wanted to celebrate the fact that we live in a country in which free speech is protected and where it is lawful to call a pineapple by whatever name one chooses,” the Daily Mail quoted a spokesman from RAHS, as saying.

The pineapple was seized. Then it was returned. Then, the atheists renamed the pineapple “Jesus.” That’s when the group was kicked out:

They claimed the union then issued them with the ultimatum: “Either the pineapple goes or you do”.

According to RAHS, a group of students surrounded their stall and removed the pineapple’s name tag before the society was ‘forced to leave the venue’. (ANI)–The ‘good natured atheist’ has more.

Good Mannered Mustard Wants ‘Respeck’

When Ernst Zundel was sentenced to five years imprisonment in 2005, the crime was denying the Holocaust.

The declaration of human rights article 19 states: “Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression.”

The recent video blaspheming Islam and Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings of God be upon him (pbuh), re-produced by Nakoula Basseley was a form of abusing freedom of speech.

Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is the exemplary role model for 1.5 billion Muslims, who attempt to emulate his teachings in their daily lives.

Denigrating Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) or any prophet is blasphemy and deeply hurts the emotions of one fourth of the global population.

Al Azhar in Cairo is the Islamic world’s equivalent to Harvard. In a letter addressed to the UN leader Ban Ki-Moon they requested “the need for an international resolution (banning) any attack on Muslim religious symbols”.

Let us not forget that in recent times Muslims have tolerated the Quran being desecrated and blasphemous cartoons defaming Prophet Muhammad (pbuh).

The Muslim response of peaceful protests, petitioning governments and conversing with our peers to explain Islamic teachings was correct.

The tragic loss of innocent people’s lives is not according to Islamic teachings and was the action of a tiny minority who transgressed Islamic law.

Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) said: “The strong is not the one who overcomes the people by his strength, but the strong is the one who controls himself while in anger.”

Denying the Holocaust is banned in 17 countries and so should an attack on Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) or any Muslim religious symbol be banned, so that humans can live together with mutual respect.
