“Taliban leaders have transformed Islamic sacred jurisprudence into an instrument of oppression.”
* Gee, did you figure that all out by yourself, Yusuf? Isn’t that what the jiziyah is, anÂ instrumentÂ of oppression? Â How else would you explain that minorities in Islamic countries have been all but wiped out? Have you never heard of the Armenian genocide in Turkey or the plight of the Copts in Egypt? What happened to the Christians and Hindus of Pakistan who made up some 30% of the population 60 years ago and are now reduced to a tiny percentage, who are forced to live in abject poverty, inÂ slave-likeÂ conditions, with no rights at all?
Is this the “sacred jurisprudence” you’re talking about?
Muslim (19:4294)Â -Â “When you meet your enemies who are polytheists, invite them to three courses of action. If they respond to any one of these, you also accept it and withhold yourself from doing them any harm. Invite them to (accept) Islam; if they respond to you, accept it from them and desist from fighting against them … If they refuse to accept Islam, demand from them the Jizya. If they agree to pay, accept it from them and hold off your hands. If they refuse to pay the tax, seek Allah’s help and fight them”
Sharia advocate Â Irfan is Â trying to put a bit of lipstick on Taliban activities back in Pakiland, where these “students of Islam” Â are rapidly Â moving on Islamabad. By the looks of it, its only a matter of weeks or months before the corrupt Zardari clan is ousted and the believers impose Allah’s law, with nukes.
But not to worry, Yusuf is onto it:
“Perhaps the ultimate measure of a nation’s civility is in how it treats its minorities. Pakistan must act to stop attacks on its Sikh and other minorities.”
I won’t be holding my breath. Islam is what Muslims (must) do, which means Â “Islamic sacred law”, the sharia, must reign supreme. Obviously you have no problem with that, Yusuf. Â For you, the Sikhs are just collateral damage. Your smears on India areÂ gratuitous, you’re just doing your job.
But whatever you do, Yusuf: have a nice day and don’t forget to flush!
