Dr. Ewis El Nagar (عويس النجار), the head of the Islamic Edicts Committee (لجنة الفتوى) of Quebec Council of Imams (Conseil des Imams Québec) who also serves as the Imam leader of Dawah (outreach, “call to Islam”) at the Canadian Islamic Centre in Montreal, says that the Islamic ruling on marrying slave women/ girls was not abrogated and it is applicable when the legitimate jihad is launched against the disbelievers.
ISTANBUL, Turkey – A group of 30-40 people wielding knives attacked students celebrating International Women’s Day on a university campus in central Istanbul, injuring some participants.
A tent set up to mark the event was attacked by the assailants and there were reported injuries caused by stab wounds at the private Bilgi University after the assailants jumped over turnstiles and entered the campus illegally.
Republican State Rep. John Bennett’s office distributed the questionnaire as Cair-OK, the local chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, ran its third annual Muslim day at the Capitol building in Oklahoma City last week. Mr Bennett’s office presented the list of questions to three Muslim school students who sought to speak to him at his office.
One of the 18 questions in the form is reported to have read: “(The prophet) Mohammed was a killer of pagans, Christians and Jews that did not agree with him… do you agree with his example?”
The form invites Muslims to clarify whether they would denounce groups such as Hamas and Hezbollah and whether they believed former Muslims should be punished for relinquishing their faith. They were also asked whether they believed the application of Sharia law should extend to non-Muslims.
The questionnaire drew a swift rebuke from civil rights groups including Cair – the US’s largest Muslim rights group which has a 40,000-strong membership in Oklahoma.
“Nobody should be vetted with stupid, Islamophobic, hateful, bigoted questions before they can meet with their representative,” said Adam Soltani, the executive director of Cair-OK.
Mr. Bennett would not ask such things if people did not profess and practise them.
A Bangladeshi-born Muslim community leader has accused Islamic youth activist Yassmin Abdel-Magied of being in denial about how Islam is linked to the abuse of women.
Tanveer Ahmed – a psychiatrist, Sydney councillor and former multicultural adviser – criticised the founder of Youth Without Borders for telling the ABC’s Q&A program Islam was ‘the most feminist religion’.
Dr Ahmed, who also had a comic role with the Seven Network’s No Bingo game show, said the 25-year-old activist was an example of a Muslim who enjoyed the freedoms and privileges of the West but convinced themselves those luxuries were also ‘Islamic’.
“One December night in 2015, [my father] called me to say that my mother was terribly upset because of what our relatives had said about me,” she writes. “That they had taken printouts of a bikini photoshoot I had for FBB Femina Miss India 2016, waved them in my parents’ face and said, ‘Look at what your daughter is doing!’”
Zaidi goes on to say that multiple relatives — who she calls “educated, well-respected people” — accused her of disgracing her family by “shamelessly exposing” her body. She says that her cousin, who she also considers her best friend, stopped speaking to her for four months after the bikini shots surfaced.
Muslim community leader Keysar Trad says an angry husband can beat his wife as ‘a last resort’.
The president of the Australian Federation of Islamic Councils made the remarks after Sky News presenter Andrew Bolt quoted a verse from the Koran, saying: ‘It is permissible for him [the husband] to beat her [the wife] light with his hands.’
The controversial Muslim leader, who has previously called for polygamy in Australia, said he had studied the text with ‘a number of Islamic scholars’ to reach a conclusion about the meaning of the verse.
Australia does not welcome sharia law. It violates the Australian Constitution. It would send Western civilisation back to the Dark Ages. It chains freethinking women to a set of absurd laws derived from the misogynistic prophet, Mohammed.
It denies the right to criticise Mohammed’s half-witted notions because freedom of speech is only permitted in accordance with Islamic law. Islamism is a woman-hating, freedom-negating ideology whose most barbaric principles are codified in sharia law.
