You should better ask Taleban in Pakistan and Afghanistan and also the ISIL in Leven to get a genuine answer to your question. I am not as pious as these people or like you.
There’s plenty of Hindus threatening this atheistAbsolutely agree with you brother.
The "civlized world" has effectively "killed god" in the sense that the "Concept of God" no longer commands the universal awe, respect and reverance which was common upto the 19th century. Only developing and undeveloped nations are hyper sensitive about religious issues and countries who have made religion their national doctrine have effectively sabotaged their own development and progress - There is not one Muslim nation that is prosperous by accord of its innovation - almost all Islamic nations who are not sitting on oil fields are struggling to exist as peaceful entitites due to this regressive mindset and illiterate mullahs misguiding the people.
I was born in a Hindu family and I feel no offense or hurt if anyone criticizes the gods and godesses, makes offensive depictions and makes satirical fun of monkey god or elephant god or whatever. Everyone is free to think as they like and we cannot force them to change their behavior only because we are so sensitive about our own beliefs. God is not offended by the ignorance of man.
They didn't get there by magic. Turks have been educated, and have reached that level of human development for them to get rid of wrong interpretations of religion. They are much ahead of us in everything. This is true for groups ranging from Kazakhs (who got 'reuducated' during Soviet era like Uygyurs today) to Iranians who have progressed the natural way. Iran in 1979 during the Islamic revolution had low literacy rates while the picture is the opposite now with a highly educated population, and the support for the religious-theocracy is at its lowest point. We cannot repress any ideology, but uphold an apt standard of education. The higher the quality of education, the better the 'manners' of a certain population. The Muslim world during its peak was open-minded and science-oriented while the west was theocratic, but today it is the opposite. This open-mindedness needs to brought back for the society to succeed once more.Please note that Turkish people are not basically fundamentalist. I have met at least few hundred Turkey people in Japan. None are practicing Muslims and none live in the past glory, even of their own Ottoman Dynasty. I have neither seen them talking about politics nor religion. None are bearded. Turkey is essentially an European country and their culture has been influenced by the secular Europe.
They are all secular minded. This may be the reason why Turkey is the only Muslim country which is industrially and economically developing. This is the reason that they do not go after destroying things the host countries have built by putting a few centuries of hard labor.
We in many Muslim countries pretend to be hard core Muslims, but, at the same time, we lack also very fine human qualities that make a person good Muslim. Anyway, it will be difficult for us to become less emotional in religion and people desist secular education. The parents love their children to attend Madrassa.
So, how do you propose to change this group of people if it is not the way Chinese are dealing in Uighur, a forced and imposed secularism?
He has a point there. Had we not gone nuts when they did it the first time we would not be where we are today. We are indirectly encouraging them to disrespect Prophet (SAW).Weird logic!
No doubt they are being Hypocrites.So BD doesn't have right to protest insult to their Prophet saws in their own country, but France has every right to protest in favor of the right to insult BD's (and Muslim's) Prophet saws?
It is like insulting someone's parents and getting angry when they protest, then trying to take actions to stop them from protesting.
What is wrong with your French @Vortex ?
Judgement of God does not come directly . God is almighty , he could easily establish any religion in this world he desires . But why he does not do so ? Why he sent prophets and messengers for the job?We should have faith in Allah's all-powerful ability to deliver justice on the Day of Judgement and keep calm
If now Muslims do not protest for their honor , then once haters will make a cartoon of prophet (pbuh) with more serious things. But the protests must remain peaceful . So boycotting French good is a part of it.He has a point there. Had we not gone nuts when they did it the first time we would not be where we are today. We are indirectly encouraging them to disrespect Prophet (SAW).
Yes, it is natural for some people to be hurt and make threats out of anger but it is completely unacceptable in todays modern, developed socities that someone becomes so offended when their beliefs are hurt that set forth to behead whoever hurt their sentiments at the cost of ruining what's left of their own lives and those around them.There’s plenty of Hindus threatening this atheist
