“Modi’s effort to prove Islam as religion of peace, in the World Sufi Forum is nothing but a step to mislead people while Islam and its radical concept of Jihad are destroying peace and humanity all around.” – Upananda Brahmachari
In his address at the World Sufi Forum in New Delhi on Thursday, 17th March 2016, Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi said: “Sufism is the voice of peace, co-existence, compassion, equality and a call to universal brotherhood”.
As Sufism has its non-communal reputation globally to an extent of encompassing spirituality in general, we should not differ with the PM’s version as above.
But, to fetch a greater applause from the Muslim audience, Modi told a big lie by saying, “When we think of 99 names of Allah, no one stands for force and violence. The first two names of Allah are compassionate and merciful. Allah is Rahman and Rahim”. Modi also described Islam as a Religion of Peace.
According to Quran, Allah is a most dangerous existence and dreadful identity to the non-believers! Allah may be “Rahman” (compassionate) and “Rahim” (merciful) for the Mumins (Muslim believers), but Allah is most dangerous and dreadful for the Kafirs (non-Muslim non-believers). Any interested persons may check the truth about Allah through the versions of Quran and Hadith.
When, PM Modi preached for Allah by saying 99 names of Allah stand free from “force and violence”, it is clearly seen that three of Allah’s names suggest otherwise. The 26th name of Allah is Al-Mudhill, means The Humiliator. The 55th name is itself Al-Matin, means The Forceful One or Firm. The 81st name of Allah is Al-Muntaqim, means The Avenger. Through further checking one can reach further illustrations of Allah with the further incitement of “force and violence”, but Allah is really an engrossed entity of fear, force and violence to that non-believer folks who are not ready to accept Allah or his prophet Muhammad.
Actually, PM Modi is getting busy more and more these days and finds no time to check the texts as placed to him before delivering it in front of the august audience. Sometimes it creates confusion, humour and cranks. Modi’s effort to prove Islam as religion of peace, in the World Sufi Forum is nothing but a step to mislead people while Islam and its radical concept of Jihad are destroying peace and humanity all around.
Islam teaches that non-Muslims are less than fully human. Muhammad said that Muslims can be put to death for murder, but that a Muslim could never be put to death for killing a non-Muslim.
The Quran never once speaks of Allah’s love for non-Muslims, but it speaks of Allah’s cruelty toward and hatred of non-Muslims more than 500 times.
Modi may think himself that he is a great servant of the Nation, a big personality and as a Hindutvawadi he is doing some good. But, according to Islam, he is definitely a Kafir and deserves the curse, anger and punishment from Allah.
Allah is definitely described in Quran as:
- Quran (5:33): “The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His messenger and strive to make mischief in the land is only this, that they should be murdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut off on opposite sides or they should be imprisoned; this shall be as a disgrace for them in this world, and in the hereafter they shall have a grievous chastisement”
- Quran (8:12): “I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them”. No reasonable person would interpret this to mean a spiritual struggle.
- Quran (8:15): “O ye who believe! When ye meet those who disbelieve in battle, turn not your backs to them. (16) Whoso on that day turneth his back to them, unless maneuvering for battle or intent to join a company, he truly hath incurred wrath from Allah, and his habitation will be hell, a hapless journey’s end.”
- Quran (9:14): “Fight against them so that Allah will punish them by your hands and disgrace them and give you victory over them and heal the breasts of a believing people.” Humiliating and hurting non- believers not only has the blessing of Allah, but it is ordered as a means of carrying out his punishment and even “healing” the hearts of Muslims. … or …
- Quran (9:29): “Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.”
“People of the Book” refers to Christians and Jews. According to this verse, they are to be violently subjugated, with the sole justification being their religious status. Verse 9:33 tells Muslims that Allah has charted them to make Islam “superior over all religions.” This chapter was one of the final “revelations” from Allah and it set in motion the tenacious military expansion, in which Muhammad’s companions managed to conquer two-thirds of the Christian world in the next 100 years. Islam is intended to dominate all other people and faiths projecting its embodiment of force and violence in Allah and Muhammad.
Quran is full of such barbaric tenets of Islam; Allah and Muhammad both are deadliest threats to the human civilization. But, Modi spreads a big lie that “there are 99 names of Allah, no one stands for force and violence’ and ‘Islam is a Religion of Peace”.
PM Modi must stop spreading confusion. As a Hindu, Modi must not tell a lie about Allah and Islam. It is shameful. – Hindu Existence, 16 March 2016
PM Shri Narendra Modi is reported to have said in the Sufi World Forum that “Islam is a Religion of Peace”.
He should know that there are 6,236 ayats (verses) in Quran. Out of these, about 1700 preach hatred, intolerance and violence. About 900 of them directly talk about killing, murdering, looting, beheading, raping etc. How can such a book be called “preaching peace”?
When these are the facts, how does Shri Modi say that “Islam is a Religion of Peace”? Is it not a blatant lie?
I quote below some of the verses from Quran (excerpted from The Meaning of the Glorious Qur’an translated by Muhammad Marmaduke Pickthall, and published by Idara Isha’at-e-Diniyat (P) Ltd., New Delhi). Let Mr. Modi decide for himself whether these can be called as the preachings of a peaceful religion.
- Surah XXI, The Prophets, 98: “Lo! ye (idolaters) and that which ye worship beside Allah are fuel of hell. Thereunto ye will come.”
- Surah II, The Cow, 221: “Wed not idolatresses till they believe; for lo! a believing bondwoman is better than an idolatress though she please you; and give not your daughters in marriage to idolaters till they believe….”
- Surah VIII, Spoils of War, 65: “O Prophet! Exhort the believers to fight. If there be of you twenty steadfast they shall overcome two hundred and if there be of you hundred steadfast they shall overcome a thousand of those who disbelieve, because they (the disbelievers) are a folk without intelligence”
- Surah VIII, Spoils of War, 39: “And fight them until persecution is no more, and religion is all for Allah…”
- Surah IX, Repentance, 5: “Then, when the sacred months have passed, slay the idolaters wherever ye find them, and take them (captive), and besiege them, and prepare for them each ambush. ….”
- Surah IX, Repentance, 23: “O ye who believe! Choose not your fathers nor your brethren for friends if they take pleasure in disbelief rather than faith. Whoso of you taketh them for friends, such are wrong-doers.”
- Surah IX, Repentance, 28: “O ye who believe! The idolaters only are unclean. So let them not come near the Inviolable Place of Worship after this their year. If ye fear poverty (from the loss of their merchandise) Allah shall preserve you of His bounty if He will….”
- Surah IX, Repentance, 123: “O ye who believe! Fight those of the disbelievers who are near to you, and let them find harshness in you, and know that Allah is with those who keep their duty (unto Him).”
- Surah XXXIII, The Clans, 61 “Accursed, they will be seized wherever found and slain with a (fierce) slaughter.”
Islam has many sects. While Sufism is a peaceful sect in Islam, Islam in toto is not a peaceful religion. Modi should have talked only about the Sufis, and should have refrained from branding the entire Islam as peaceful, which it is not.
Fortunately, most of the Muslims in India (with their Hindu roots) do not approve of the above verses of the Quran. It is the duty of every Indian, including the PM, to see that more and more Muslims abhor the violent verses in the Quran and become peace-loving—not because of but in spite of Quran. – Hindu Voice, Bulletin No 168, 13-19 March 2016
