Christmas: “the pathway to hellfire”

The lawyer, who recently praised the Mumbai terror attacks, urged all Muslims to reject traditional Christmas celebrations, claiming that they are forbidden by Allah.

The 41-year-old shocked Christians and even those of his own faith by branding yuletide festivities as “the pathway to hellfire”.

Choudary, who is chairman of the Society of Muslim Lawyers, ruled out all celebrations, including having a Christmas tree, decorating the house or eating turkey.

In the sermon posted on an Islamic website, he said: “In the world today many Muslims, especially those residing in western countries, are exposed to the evil celebration Christmas.

“Many take part in the festival celebrations by having Christmas turkey dinners.

“Decorating the house, purchasing Christmas trees or having Christmas turkey meals are completely prohibited by Allah.

“Many still practise this corrupt celebration as a remembrance of the birth of Jesus.

“How can a Muslim possibly approve or participate in such a practice that bases itself on the notion Allah has an offspring?

“The very concept of Christmas contradicts and conflicts with the foundation of Islam.

“Every Muslim has a responsibility to protect his family from the misguidance of Christmas, because its observance will lead to hellfire. Protect your Paradise from being taken away – protect yourself and your family from Christmas.”

Choudary is Principal Lecturer at the London School of Shari’ah and a follower of the Islamist militant leader Omar Bakri Mohammed.

Earlier this year, he led a meeting at the heart of the area where the liquid bombers lived, which warned of a British September 11.

Religious Persecution in ‘Secular’ Turkey

The Real Victims of Islam: Australia Immigration rethink needed

Australia would do well to open its doors to victims of persecution in Islamic countries. In contrast with the various problems caused by Muslim immigrants and their support for the Qur’an which condones abuse of women, children and mandates discrimination towards non-Muslims, the Christian and Jewish victims of Islamic imperialism have settled in to their new countries. They do not create such a fuss. How often do you see headlines such as ‘Assyrian Christian bishops call women cats’/dogs’ meat’ or  ‘Police form Jewish crime Squad’ or ‘Buddhists shoot at police station in drive-by shooting’?  The reality is, and everyone knows it deep down, that those sympathetic to Judeo-Christian and other non-Muslim values tend to settle much more peaceably into their new countries, than the Al Hilalis and Hizb-ut Tahrirs of the world. The latter come with the loaded gun of their negative perception of western civilization. They come with the attitude, that eventually the place must convert to their ways.  If a Jew, Christian, Buddhist or secular humanist wishes to change their beliefs, no-one will threaten to execute them, as will certain Muslims especially Hizb-ut Tahrir as they clearly stated in black and white in their Australian Constitution. Why I say ‘certain Muslims’ is that I believe that some do respond the ‘natural law’ in their hearts and can see that such execution is wrong. However, they are cowed into silence by the powerful members of their community and will hardly ever condemn them.

Some countries are waking up as to who the real victims are with regard to Islam.

Some countries are waking up as to who the real victims are with regard to Islam.

Germany may open its doors to Iraqi Christians fleeing from persecution by Muslim extremists if the countries of the TerrorizedEuropean Union vote to refuse to do so. Germany’s Commissioner for Immigration Affairs, Maria Boehmer, told the website ankawa.com that “members of the Christian minority are regularly threatened by Muslim gangs and heads of families are forced to convert to Islam or leave the country in 24 hours.” (source)

And some like lawyer Robert DeKelaita in the United States, devote their time to helping Iraqi Christians escape Muslim persecution. (reference)

And the words of Louis Sako, the Chaldean archbishop of Kirkuk who is pleading for help for the Christians to remain in Iraq and not increasingly become refugees.

“Do not leave us alone. Do not leave us isolated and abandoned”…”There are 100,000 refugees in Syria”, the archbishop said, “30,000 in Jordan, many thousands in Lebanon, Egypt, and Turkey. They know that their situation is temporary, and the prospect of returning home seems like a dream.” (source)

Whether our assistance takes the form of helping the Christians in Iraq, or assisting them, the Jews, Buddhists or Hindus, to settle in our country – our moral duty is to assist these victims of Islamic imperialism and oppression, wherever they may be in the world.

Non-Muslim Minorities in Bangladesh: Victim of Bloody Religious Persecution

At last the Department of State of the Government of USA has admitted through a circular issued on September 14, 2007, that the religious minorities, e.g. the Christians, Buddhists and the Hindus, are being persecuted brutally in Bangladesh by the Muslims. According to a press report appeared in the 17th September edition of the Kolkata based Bengali daily Bartaman, the circular says that the entire non-Muslim population, belonging to religious communities of Hinduism, Buddhism etc are victims of violent religious discrimination and torture by the Muslims, the majority religious group. The circular also says that, though Dhaka speaks of religious tolerance and freedom of religion, the attack on religious minorities has recently assumed a extremely savage and fierce. These unfortunate people are targeted for all kinds brutal and barbaric atrocities.

The report says that, as a result of this inhuman religious discrimination, minorities are losing their lives and properties. After the formation of independent Bangladesh in 1971, the Government grabbed Hindu land with the help of the so called “Vested Property Act”. Though the said black Act was repealed later on, the minorities did not get back their land snatched away by the Government. By a verdict in 2001, the Bangladeshi Supreme Court had directed the government to return the land, grabbed with the help of the said black Act, to the real owner. In spite of that, few Hindus could get back their land. According to a Professor of the University of Dhaka, nearly 2 million Hindu families have, so far, lost about 40,000 acres of agricultural fertile land. Many are convinced that this is only a tiny tip of an iceberg. In fact, land grabbing is a enshrined policy of jihad against the kafirs as ordained by Allah in Koran. Prophet Mohammad had taught this lesson in his life time by driving away the Jews of Medina, belonging to the Beni Nazir and Beni Kanuika clan and slaughtering the Jews of Beni Koreiza en-masse and acquiring their land and property.

It is difficult for an ordinary individual to guess the social condition of non-Muslim kafirs in an Islamic State. Koran does not consider these kafirs as human beings. Allah has condemned them as godless beasts and has empowered the Muslims to heap any kind of atrocity and torture on them. Not only that, he is alluring such oppressors of rewards in the Paradise. So, an Islamic court in an Islamic Country does not consider such atrocities even a crime at all. And the reality is that, in such a country, judiciary is heavily influenced by the religion of Islam and cannot play neutral in giving verdicts.

That is why the US circular has said that in Bangladesh, the government and its machineries are heavily influenced by religion and hence they cannot do much to stop all such religious discriminations. Not to speak of Hindus and Buddhists, even the Ahmadiyas, a sect of Islam, have declared non-Muslims and turning victims of similar religious discriminations.

Ten Christian converts arrested (Iran)

Tehran, 28 May (AKI) – Ten Iranians who converted from Islam to Christianity in recent months have been arrested in the southern city of Shiraz.

According to Goodarz, a spokesperson for the Iranian converts, more than 35 of them have been arrested since the beginning of the year. Goodarz himself has taken refuge in Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates.

The new Majlis or Iranian parliament which met for the first time on Tuesday will be discussing in the coming weeks proposed laws presented by the government to reform the penal code.

Under the new law, anyone born to a Muslim father who decides to renounce Islam and convert to another faith, faces the death penalty.

The punishment is currently absent from the Iranian penal code even though in the past, dozens of Christian converts and followers of the Bahai faith have been hanged.
