Teachings of the Quran
Relationship with non-Muslims
PROTOCOL AND IDEOLOGY OF PAKISTAN
1. Islam is the only right religion on the earth; all other religions are wrong. Non-Muslims are on the path of error.
2. It is the prime religious duty of every Muslim to convert all non-Muslims to Islam. This effort has to be continuous and nonstop. This continuous and nonstop effort is variously called ROAD TO HEAVEN. Muslim struggle for peace and justice, Jihad, etc.
3. There are three stages for bringing peace and justice on this earth:
(a) Advice and inducements to non-Muslims to get converted to Islam
or at least to work for or under Islam;
(b) Creation of an atmosphere of psychological demoralization and confusion in the minds of non-Muslims;
(c) Military attack on non-Muslims.
The stage (b) mentioned above is the most important one, to be employed on a large scale in dealing with communities which are not likely to be converted to Islam on a mass scale at one time. It is preparatory to military attack when such attacks become necessary. If this psychological warfare is made in an intelligent and planned manner, the final conflict may be won even without a military attack. If, however, a military onslaught becomes imperative, a very good ground for military success would have been prepared through such preparatory, psychological demoralization.
THIS PSYCHOLOGICAL WARFARE INCLUDES: “TERRORISM” AND “TREACHERY”.
Attack on non-Muslims is advised when they least suspect it, such as on their religious holy days, on Yom Kippur or on Sundays if the victims would-be Christians. They are to be attacked when they are at play or at sleep, when they are most vulnerable.
“When ye Muslims attack! Create terror in the hearts of
non-Muslims; Rob; Burn; Slaughter on mass scale so as to teach the survivors what awaits them if they do not surrender to Islam.”
If non-Muslims are prepared for truce, Muslims must impose conditions so as to achieve their conversion to Islam smoothly at a future date. During this period of truce, the non-Muslims are to live as second-class citizens under Muslim rule, paying special taxes for the privilege of living under Muslim ‘protection’.
When stage (c) comes and a war is declared, all Muslims, even the Muslim citizens of the invaded country are to support the invader, the Muslim attackers from outside and against the interest of the country of residence. Islam does not recognize any nationality other than Islamic identity.
If the Geneva Convention or any other Convention does not suit them, the Muslims must quote Islamic Law, which comes directly from Allah, the Muslim god and therefore supreme to every Muslim and superior to all other earthly laws made by non-Muslims men. The same holds good in the case of United Nations Declaration of Human Rights.
Not one word of the Quran can be changed ever doubts cast on its contents and validity at any time and place. Punishment for such questioning is:
“D E A T H ” prescribed in the holy Quran
Stage by stage, march against the non-Muslims, hit them, offer them terms of peace, demoralize them, terrorize them ceaselessly in various forms, open or deceitful, infiltrate and create total confusion in the camp of non-Muslims. Then attack, and attack ruthlessly, as commanded by the holy Prophet in the holy Quran, slaughtering entire non-Muslim communities including their womenfolk and children.
“Ye march ruthlessly ceaselessly till the conquest is complete and there is left no non-Muslim on this earth, till everyone obeys Shariat, law of Islam.”
No disobedience is tolerated inside Muslim territory. Slaughter the dissidents such that others shall not dare to raise voice of protest against a Muslim ruler. Carry on till there is strict observation of Islamic Law and Islamic Justice on the whole world.
4. To understand the teachings of Islam, read carefully the Holy Quran. Generous and excellent exposition of these teachings are given in that book. (End of Excerpts)
