New York,with inputs from correspondents at Boston, and Paris:
By now everyone must have heard what was written in the instructions that were found with the hijackers of the airliners that were crashed into the WTC and the Pentagon. The instructions ask them to carry their knives, and remember that in doing their heinous deed "they belong to god" and after doing their fiendish act it is "to god whom they will return."
How can such beastly acts be justified in the name of god; and how are young, educated and well-to-do folks lured on to this bait to become killers of defenseless innocents and traitors to humanity?
Many would wonder how such beastly acts can be justified in godly and saintly terms; and how are young, educated and well-to-do folks lured on to this bait to become killers of defenseless innocents and traitors to humanity? Let's find out how.
Human beings all over the globe are different. Some are white, some are black, some brown and some yellow. Some have long noses, some have stub noses, some have golden hair, some have brown and some black. This list of differences is not too long. On the contrary, there are many similarities too that are common to all human beings. All humans (as also animals) have feelings of fear, love, hatred, and so on, all tempered by the instinct of survival. But the only difference between Man and the lower animals is the level of articulation in Man is much higher.
A fish can hardly express its love or hate, a dog can express its love or hate better than a fish and a Man can express his love or hatred in a much more articulate manner. This articulation comes from the man's capacity of forming an independent personal judgement as to whom and what to love and whom and what to hate. This faculty of forming a judgement works fine as long as every human being has to freedom to exercise this judgement.
But when any belief system tries to regulate this freedom of judgement, the results could be disastrous, if the nature of that regulation is socially harmful. What would happen if Man's faculty of judgement is conditioned by say the following regulations:
What the - Holy Qur'an says "When you meet the unbelievers in the Jihad strike off their heads and, when you have laid them low, bind your captives firmly"
Quran 47:4 When you meet the unbelievers in the Jihad strike off their heads and, when you have laid them low, bind your captives firmly. Then grant them their freedom or take ransom from them, until War shall lay down her burdens.
Quran 5:33-34 The only reward of those who make war upon Allah and His messenger and strive after corruption in the land will be that they will be killed or crucified, or have their hands and feet and alternate sides cut off, or will be expelled out of the land.
Quran 5:51 Believers, take neither Jews nor Christians for your friends. They are friends with one another. Whoever of you seeks their friendship shall become one of their number.
I will instill terror into the hearts of the unbelievers, Smite ye above their necks - Holy Qur'an
Quran 8:12 "Remember Thy Lord inspired the angels (with the message): "I am with you: give firmness to the believers, I will instill terror into the hearts of the unbelievers, Smite ye above their necks and smite all their finger tips of them."
The effect of such tampering of the independence of the human faculty of forming a judgement (as to whom and what to love or hate) is obvious. One shudders to imagine the kind of effects such a manual has on the impressionable mind of a young Moslem child. Is it any wonder that so many of them grow up into hardened criminals who possess a distorted, sadistic and perverted psyche. Repeated exposure to and encouragement of the thoughts expressed in this verse would surely inculcate violence in the very core of a child's being.
Any deluded Non-Moslem who thinks that Islam is the religion of peace and that it is only misguided Moslems who commit terrorism and atrocities, can pick up an English translation of the Quran
The above verses are only the tip of the iceberg. Any deluded Non-Moslem who thinks that Islam is the religion of peace and that it is only misguided Moslems who commit terrorism and atrocities, can pick up an English translation of the Quran from any bookstore and refer to these Verses (Surahs). Is it any surprise that an average Moslem who lives up the life recommended by the Quran, behaves like a beast who has forsaken his freedom to exercise his faculty of forming an independent judgement of whom to Love and whom to hate.
Religious fanatics have the body of a human being, but their mind no longer has the freedom of forming an independent judgement of whom to love and whom not to
Like a soulless robot he/she hates all non-Moslems. They have the body of a human being, but their mind no longer has the freedom of forming an independent judgement of whom to love and whom not to.
No not all Moslems may practice what the Quran has commended them to do. But then such Moslems are at least in part free of Quranic paranoia and consequently they according to the Quran would be classified as traitors (Murtads) or worse so as infidels (Kafirs) who would themselves be the object of hatred by the Momins (those who follows the injunctions in the Quran) The Quran tries to control the psychology of the Moslems and it incites hatred and violence in the Moslem. It was specifically designed for this very purpose, so that the Prophet Mohammed in his lifetime and later on his followers could carry on the tradition of Genocide and Terrorism started by him, long after his death. The entire recorded history of Moslems for the last 1400 years is a testament to this fact which hypnotises Moslems to robotically hate the non-Moslems. Thus while having the body of the Human being, a Moslem who unquestioningly follows the Quran, behaves like a souless beast who has forsaken his/her capacity of independent thinking. A quality that is in fact the distinguishing quality of our sapient species - the Homo Sapien.
