Muslims never read the Quran from start to finish with the intent to understand its message and with an unprejudiced mind, if they do; it is most probable it becomes clear to them that this book is not from God; but it is the fabrication of an evil person, filled with absurdities and violence. They live in a blissful garden of ignorance where all their questions are choked by not thinking over it. There, they don’t have to think. All they have to do was to believe.
Muslims are not unintelligent or irrational people, but somehow they manage to silence their rational thinking when it comes to Quran and Islam. They are pleased and make an abstract ideal image of Islam in their mind. But that beautiful Islam is THEIR Islam and not the Islam of Muhammad. That is why Muslims love Islam. Very few Muslims have read the Quran to understand it. Yes they chant it and often in a language that they don’t understand, but few know what they read. Even fewer are those who have read the Sira and the Hadith.
The Islam they live is the Islam made by them. They create the best religion in their mind and when you tell the truth about Islam they see no resemblance of it with the one they have envisioned. Let alone reading and understanding Quran, very majority of Ummah (Muslim community worldwide) does not know the very basic of Islam and Muhammad, they don’t know how many wives Muhammad had, Muhammad had concubines and slept with them, he married a six year old girl and slept with her, slavery or concubinism is allowed in Islam, and such many more immoralities, insensibilities and inhumanities which is unknown to majority of them.
How can they see the truth if they read only lies and refuse to read anything that may cause them doubt their belief? Thus, they deceive themselves and tell themselves that if only they practiced the true Islam, all their problems, social, economic and judicial, problems will be resolved. They are convinced that the problem with Islam is actually the Muslims and not Islam itself.
When I read the Quran I discovered a distinctly different picture than the one I had created in my mind. The new picture emerging from the pages of that book was a violent, intolerant, irrational, arrogant religion, a far cry from the religion of peace, equality and tolerance.
What would be the reaction of a man who is told that his wife is disloyal? How would a child react if he is told that his father is a murderer, a rapist, and a thief? A child who adulates his father or a man who love his wife will not be able to accept it even if all the proofs in the world are shown to him. They would call you a liar and would hate you for hurting him. They would curse you, consider you his enemy, and may even explode in anger and attack you. Or what would the condition of a man who is dreaming a pleasant dream in his sleep and you wake him up. He would definitely not like it. The greater the beauty of the dream, the greater is the pain of the reality. Even though faith is false, it is still sweet. It is very comforting to believe.
It is a natural tendency of human he gobble all praise, no matter how inappropriate they may be, and vomit all criticisms. When you tell a person he looks great, or he is very honest, or he is very just or intelligent, he would never mind or question why you say so, and accept all without any doubt or question; but when you criticize the selfsame person, even for his betterment, first he would be unwilling to hear them. Even somehow he hears, he would not take it, but he would raise hundreds of questions. In addition, there could be frowning and glaring. Similarly, when Muslims are nurtured with a believe that they are fortunate they are Muslims and someday will go to paradise for eternity, they gobble this wishful thinking without any question or doubt because it is always pleasant to fantasize a beautiful dream. The fact is, it remains only a dream not a reality.
“A true believer is a person so fanatically committed to a cause that no amount of reality can make him abandon it” –Eric Hoffer
Believing with evidence is knowledge and believing without evidence is superstition. Faith means believing without evidence is superstition; gullibility and superstition also means believing without evidence. Muslims don’t want to listen or read anything against their faith and assume their unquestioned belief will be rewarded manifold in after life without ever realizing that unquestioned devotion and belief never take one to truth or reality. What Muslims assume as ‘Eemaan’ is actually superstition wrapped in obstinacy empowered by ignorance and stupidity. It is an art of Self-Deception. He does not need opium that has the gift of self-delusion and does not the truth that has the wings of self-complacency. Following or believing some ideology blindfold without questioning is a kind of intellectual slavery. How could the intelligent designer of this universe, mind and body reward stupidity, ignorance and hatred in human being? Being Ignorant and having blind faith is never rewarded by God in heaven, if stupidity and ignorance is rewarded by God then donkeys are divine and monkeys are mystics.
“Men surrender sooner their rights than their customs and rituals; ridicule knowledge before their beliefs.” –John Stuart Mill
Muslims truly incapable to question the integrity of Islam; may be because of faith and fear instilled in them. They assume every Islamic teachings, laws; absurdities must be meaningful, transcendental, or rational near God. There must be some reason behind the inhuman and irrational theories or stories which human are neither apt to grasp nor are supposed to question as they are command of God, which they have taken it for granted. But here they fail to ponder or realize that on basis they are so sure of these claims, is it analyzed truth or unanalyzed teachings of their elders, and why God would give such revelation which is beyond the grasp of majority of the people.
In every Muslim it is infused into their mind by their elders since childhood that all non-Muslims, be it greatest of scientists, philosophers, freethinkers, theologians of other religions or common men, all are enemies of Muslims and conspire against their religion. Why anyone would be enemy of particular religion if it does not suppress the rights of others is beyond me? Actually, it is Islam itself who teaches Muslims to be enemy of the entire world to spread its claws for imperialism.
When they hear any critical question against their faith, they believe there are answers for all the criticisms and questions raised against Islam, but neither would they look for those answers nor would they willingly listen any criticism against their faith which they are very much content and consoled with.
Muslims challenge they would be able to answer all the criticism, but when you start presenting them, they would be irritated and would request you to stop discussing Islam at once. This has become their instinctive psychological tendency. At one side people like Zakir Naik boast and challenge about their religion, and at the same time Muslims launch Fatwas against Salman Rushdie and Taslima Nasreen for their life.
If you silence the voice of critics, then what is the use of challenging for the veracity of your faith? Islamic apologists are such runners who even run alone would be the last one to come (the failure). When Taslima Nasreen last came to Hyderabad (India), she was hit and pushed by set of Muslims. These are exactly the same behavior their prophet adopted and approved. He killed even women critics, silenced opponent. In the name faith (Eemaan) they practice every sort of dishonesty (Be-Emaani). Muslims are worst of the creatures and the most dishonest (Be-Emaan) people!
Muslims are such a creature who try to defend their religion without the knowledge of their own religion, claim and boast about the integrity of Quran and Muhammad believing that they would be able to answer and satisfy all criticisms and allegations against them, they depart promising that very soon they would return with all answers, but unfortunately that day never comes.
For a single criticism, hundred Muslims come with hundreds of answers. They do it in the hope that if they try to defend their religion (anyhow), they would be adorable near Allah for sustaining His religion. They don’t understand that a religion of Omnipotent God never needs the defense of small and weak creature ‘Man’.
Whenever they see or come across with any book or article critical to their faith they immediately close it like a witch closes the aperture of light without reading even a single page – saying this is misinterpretation of Islam. But they would never search, verify or confirm their own claim. Their entire life and faith hinges on oral reliance or pronouncement.
In his book, ‘Tell-tell Brain’ V.S. Ramachandran argued about various types of psychological blindness and peculiarities, where one of them I can mention is ‘Metaphor Blindness’ in which a patient cannot understand metaphors or figurative statement. Rather, he would always tell you the literal meaning of the metaphor or proverb. Once such a patient was examined with a proverb, ‘Rome was not built in a day’. When Ramachandran asked him the meaning of the metaphor, he kept on telling the literal meaning of the proverb and could tell figurative one, even though the person was educated and wise enough to realize it metaphorical sense.
Muslims suffer from ‘logical blindness’ when it comes to their faith. Even the most educated Muslims talk in such an irrational manner that it is sometime difficult to believe whether I am talking to sane person or an insane one. Tell a Muslim about the absurdities of other religion and he would understand like a smart man, but as soon as you replace that religion with Islam, he would immediately be in denial mode or agitated. No matter how you condemn other religions in front of Muslims, they would be delighted and conceited.
They make fun of all religious myths and legend, like ‘Ganesha’, who is a deity with trunk or Ravan, a king with ten heads in Hinduism, but when you talk about absurdity of Mi’raj, they would utterly refuse the illogicality of the story – a carrier who is half mule and half donkey with pair of wings. The funniest creature! But this is absolutely scientific, rational, proven, tested and verified under scientific spirit and research; to Muslims ONLY. This blindness is not inborn, but is the result of indoctrination by their elders in their childhood.
Literally, Muslims says, ‘kill those who say Islam is a violent religion.’ Without ever realizing what irony they utter. Even my brothers, who are not so learned and never did search, said to me that it is their week ‘Eemaan’ that they hear something bad about Islam else they are supposed to kill anyone who says against their religion and prophet.
The lesser they understand the mumbo-jumbo of the Quran, higher their faith increases. They believe Quran has so profound assertions that it is not possible for all to understand it, thus it must be divinely inspired. They fail to think over why God would send illogical and incoherent message which is inconceivable to most people.
Muslims gulp down all the lies, absurdities and inhumanities that are inherent in Islam, uncritically. They can’t see anything wrong with their faith as they are unable and unwilling to see anything wrong with their faith. Because Muhammad is above all, entire world (rather, they consider, conspire to blaspheme him and is enemy of Islam) can be liar, but he cannot be. Muhammad to them is the perfect example of human being even when they know he was a pedophile, a mass murderer and a rapist.
Islam has thousands fallacies, Quran has numerous errors of all sorts and Muhammad has countless crimes (as per Quran, Hadiths and Sira themselves) still they want to silence them who raises those points, by violence, not with a rational answer; such killing, persecuting, banning and banishing are what the Muslims have been doing since the inception of Islam. They want to kill those speaking the truth, sometime they succeed sometime not.
They ban and try to ban the websites and books exposing their cherished beliefs, they succeed unfortunately. Unlike all other religious believer, Muslims protest march on roads in rage, agitate, burn embassies, blow buildings, blaze libraries, kill people, ban books and websites, thinking that they are doing it for and spreading the truth, without realizing that truth does not need these things but a little rational answer.
On top of these, Muslims, on a regular basis, wake up in the early hours of the morning and perform Vodu (Ablution), with the icy water of winter, lose precious time and energy in performing Salah five times a day and in reading Quran (the most absurd and useless book of all times), work outside home hungry and thirsty entire day during the month of Ramadan and the billions of people who torture themselves in this way just for a lie, a lie of a sick man, Muhammad. These kind of hope is nothing but a sinister self-deception and a waste of life which a billion people are still lost in this arid desert of ignorance, chasing a mirage in the fear of childish stories of a hell with scorching fire and in the hope a heaven with rives of wine, milk and honey and high bosom virgins were the figments of a unspiritual, barbarous and crafty mind of a man in need to dominate, i.e., Muhammad.
Muslims often question about the existence of God and believe that the existence of God, Jinns, magic, spell, ghosts and souls proves Islam to be true and Muhammad a prophet of God, which is obviously not true. The ideas of God, Jinns, resurrection, magic, spell, souls were already prevalent before Muhammad’s grandfathers were born. The scriptures of Jews and Christians are the living evidences. It was not difficult to plagiarize and concoct few theories about God, life and death, prayer, Jinns, soul et al to form a new religion in one’s own name. Question for those who believe Muhammad a prophet of God is, did Muhammad said something which was not prevalent before him and is now proved by Modern science? I firmly believe there is nothing at all.
The reason why I know the Muslims’ mindset so precisely, because I talked with hundreds of Muslims and discussed Islam with them and because I have broken the spell now and LIBERATED myself from mental enslavement: once I myself was a Muslim.
