Controversial imam?

June 22, 2010

That’s the best that they could do?  Controversial?

I do find it amusing that the National Post calls Zakir Naik a “televangelist” but calling him controversial doesn’t seem nearly strong enough.

He advocates killing apostates and homosexuals.

He gives advice on how to best beat your wife.

He says that all Muslims should be terrorists.

He says that Jews are the “staunchest enemy” of Muslims.

Keeping him out of Canada is an excellent choice.

    Eh, he’s an idiot… he seems to be indicative of imams from the Middle East. He needs to be heard… ACTUALLY HEARD by those who unwittingly support similar things to him. People who march with Hezbollah, those who believe that Israel is an apartheid state.

    Of course, those are the same people who won’t actually hear what he has to say, although they’ll make a show of listening.

    Deuteronomy

    Chapter 13

    KJV

    1 If there arise among you a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams, and giveth thee a sign or a wonder, 2 And the sign or the wonder come to pass, whereof he spake unto thee, saying, Let us go after other gods, which thou hast not known, and let us serve them; 3 Thou shalt not hearken unto the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams: for the LORD your God proveth you, to know whether ye love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul. 4 Ye shall walk after the LORD your God, and fear him, and keep his commandments, and obey his voice, and ye shall serve him, and cleave unto him. 5 And that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams, SHALL BE PUT TO DEATH; because he hath spoken to turn you away from the LORD your God, which brought you out of the land of Egypt, and redeemed you out of the house of bondage, to thrust thee out of the way which the LORD thy God commanded thee to walk in. So shalt thou put the evil away from the midst of thee.

    “If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be PUT TO DEATH: their blood shall be upon them.” — Lev. 20:13.

    “Wives SUBMIT to your husbands as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body which he is savior.” (v. 22-23)

    Every Muslim should be a terrorist?

    Z.N. Every Muslim should be a terrorist. A terrorist is a person who causes terror. The moment a robber sees a policeman he is terrified. A policeman is a terrorist for the robber. Similarly every Muslim should be a terrorist for the antisocial elements of society, such as thieves, dacoits and rapists. Whenever such an anti-social element sees a Muslim, he should be terrified. It is true that the word ‘terrorist’ is generally used for a person who causes terror among the common people. But a true Muslim should only be a terrorist to selective people i.e. anti-social elements, and not to the common innocent people. In fact a Muslim should be a source of peace for innocent people.”

      Quoting what someone wrote in the Bible almost 3000 years ago is completely different from what a religious leader is actually advocating today.

    It’s interesting how when some one criticizes an extreme religious Islamic viewpoint, the come back is to criticize an extremist Christian viewpoint. Could it be that either viewpoint in the extreme is flatly stupid?

    It’s like the world runs on mirror images for some people. Black and white but no grey or even a mention of a full colour spectrum. A situation or issue must apparently have only an option A or option B for perception. guh!

    Zakir Naik’s teachings against Islam, no wonder he got banned and recieved many fatwas.

    Dear friend,

    True-Islam and terrorism are antonyms, in fact Islam hates terrorism. Prophet Mohammed was a full fledged brave-warrior who stood against falsehood and he never resorted to any kind of terrorism or terrorist tactics that are similar to sudden bombing or fear-based torture even on his most deadliest enemies. Only the most deluded and the cowards will resort to terrorism as a retaliatory solution to any given problem. When Zakir Naik calls for the terrorizing of the terrorists, it is like calling for the raping of the rapists, it takes us to no solution.

    Zakir Naik justifies his definition of terrorism by saying that a thief is terrified by a policeman, and so a police man is a terrorist to a theif. This is wrong. A policeman is only terrifying the thief not terrorizing. A policeman only tries to imprison the thief, and if evidence is provided before the court, only then is corrective measures taken. A policeman is not a terrorist to a thief. Similarly there is no terrorism in Islam, even when against the real terrorist themselves. Prophet Mohammed was devoid of the least amount of terror. He did not even terrorize the very woman that poisoned him. People used to throw rubbish on his face, yet he was a man of great patience and forbearance and he won many a hearts. This is true Islam. Such a great man he really was!

    Prophet Mohammed will never use terrorism to fight terrorism, he always used the truth along with a brave army of companions to fight the infidels only in a war of reason, code and self-defense in the way of the Truth before Allah.

    Once Ali, companion of Prophet Mohammed was at war, and he got into a fight with a very dangerous criminal, he finally overcame him and sat on his chest to kill him. The opponent spat at his face. Ali at once left him. Seeing this the man was very much surprised and asked the reason. Ali said, “I was killing you for God’s sake but when you spat on my face, my sincerity was endangered because of the personal feelings of anger.” Hearing this the man immediately submitted and asked repentance to Al-God. Such was the honor and code that these men of Mohammed had, even at the crucial moments of war.

    Whereas terrorism is akin to a mad stupid man jumping from behind a bush, stabbing, bombing and shooting an unaware person at random to cause a state of fear all around. Mohammed will never support such cowardice. True-Islam and Terrorism are antonyms any day.
