Tahir Aslam Gora says:
Liberal Muslims are not only silenced by literalist Muslims, but also by those non-Muslims who have developed the hollow pattern of being ‘fair’ and ‘tolerant’ to every religion. The existence of ‘political fairness’ among large circles of non-Muslim activists is actually a much bigger obstacle than extremist Muslims because those non-Muslim activists dominate the media outlets across the world and often ignore genuinely liberal Muslim voices.
Abul Kasem says:
Islam has very little respect for humanity, as we understand it. In the first place, it does not consider non-Muslims as human beings. Therefore, it is useless to talk with Islam about human rights, equality in the eye of law, religious freedom, and freedom of expression, democratic rights, people’s government, universal suffrage, and any universal declaration of human rights.
That is why it is impossible to negotiate or compromise with Islam or to secure permanent peace (like Israelis and Palestinians or Kashmir and India). Anyone having the slightest humanism, conscience, and compassion should be appalled at the Islamic theology I have presented here today. It is time that the entire humanity realizes the futility of engaging in inter-faith dialogue with Islam. As long as the unbelievers are treated as animals in Islam, it is not possible to have equal rights is Islamic societies.
We need the world to realize this truth and to unite together. Truly, the world is permanently divided into two warring camps: the world of humans (Islam) and the world of ‘animals’ (non-Islam). Without wasting time in endless dialogues, let us accept this reality and do what we must do to defend our freedom and civilization.
