PUBLISHER'S  FOREWORDIt
is a historical truth that the Hindus of India, in spite of the fact that the Mohammedans of allhues, the Afghans, Persians, Arabs, Turks and so on, had one time or another held sway onparts of India for long periods, know nothing of the Koran and the Hadis.They have no idea atall about what the Bible of the Mohammedans tells its followers, all of whom now claim to haveArabs as their ancestors, as justifying reason for owing no loyalty to India.Why was that? Simply because a Hindu was not permitted to read that book, or even touch it,under pain of death. Even if they had been allowed to read it, it was no easy task to delve intothe 'holy book for it was written in Arabic, from end to end. And no one, or nearly no one, knewany Arabic at all.But those few who had some knowledge of the Koran kept it to themselves and did not sharethe knowledge with their fellow-men and women. If they had, they would have known, as weknow today that the Koran reeks with hatred of non-Moham-medans, all non-Mohammedans. Infact, Islam can truly be called an acronym for Intolerance, Slaughter, Loot (or Anfal), Arson andMolestation of kafir women. If you don't believe it, just cast v our eves to Mohammedancountries around you.What was preposterous was the fact that the Hindu leaders know nothing or next to nothingabout the contents of the Ko-ran but wax eloquent on Islam being the same as Hinduism; theytell us that all religions are the same. By so doing, they eliminate that natural self-protectingaptitudes of the Hindu and make things much easier for the blood thirsty, fornication-pronerowdies that had once ruled India. Things have not changed yet. The local IndianMohammedans now tell us all kinds of fairy tales about the human values that the Koranpreaches. And India today is flooded with such story tellers like the Ali Engineers, the Zakarias,the Shahabuddins, the All Mians and so on.It is a stroke of luck that we have the good fortune of listen-ing to a man like Anwar Shaikh,who openly advises us about thetrue nature of Islam, its views on human rights, Jehad, interces-sion, idolatry and democracy.Please read up what the author has to say on such subjects and avoid the unpleasantness of horrible surprises. And do you know that Mr. Shaikh has a number of Fatwas on his head, allissued by this so called humane faith and not one of the mullahs has dared to take him on for adebate on the subject of Islam. How long are we going to be ruled by fools? A. GHOSH(The Publisher)Houston,Texas, USA.Divali, 1999.

ISLAM  AND  HUMAN  RIGHTSPreambleIslam
is the only religion that insists on God's rights. This is certainly astrange concept because rights denote protection from aggression anduncertainty. This is what "right to life, property, justice, etc.," implies. It isclear that rights are needed by the weak and the helpless, and they serveas a guard against the mighty, the unjust and the aggressor. If Allah isreally the Creator, the All-powerful, the All-knowing, the All-wise, as theMuslims claim, then how can He need rights? If He really does, then itlogically follows that He requires protection and assurance. This is anabsurd idea because it poses a direct insult to Allah: His honour must beway above the notion of rights if He is really the Greatest and totallyIndependent.Again, according to the Islamic jurisprudence, it is God's fundamental right
 
that man must obey His laws and refrain from making his own to suit hisneeds and circumstances. This is theocracy, which is run ruthlessly by theClergy in the name of God, who cannot be seen or contacted. It is simply aruse of the tyrannical mind to destroy democratic values, which protecthuman rights and dignity.Yet the Muslim scholars talk of "Islamic human rights." This is a farce tomislead people. The article: "Islam And Human Rights" examines the issuein depth.
The
concept of Human Rights is a very big thorn in the flesh of Islam, yet the Muslim juristsostentatiously talk about the rights that Islam is supposed to have bestowed on man. This is thebiggest myth that human mind ever created. For the purpose of exposing the fallacy of thisassertion, I may divide the discussion into the following categories:1. Rights of God (Allah),2. Rights of the *Muslim men,3. Rights of infidels, and4. Rights of women.(* Non-Muslims have no rights because they are considered "the worst beasts" by Islam).
1. Rights of God (Allah)
It is not possible to explain the notion of " God's rights" without considering its philosophicalconnotations. In view of the Muslim claims about the immeasurable pomp, prestige and pre-eminence of Allah, it is fair to say that He does not need any rights at all, because rights arerequired to protect one's entity, interest and future, threatened by aggression and fear of usurpation. Allah, who is projected as the Almighty, the Absolute, the creator, the All-wise andFree of desires, does not need the shield of rights to shelter, secure and screen Himself fromman, whom He is supposed to have created and whose every movement He is said to control. If Allah does need rights, then He is neither Almighty nor Creator: He is no more than a stunningmyth of the religious manipulators, who impose their own absolutism in the guise of God'srights to avoid public accountability.This seems to be a valid assumption because the Koranic God feels delighted when He isworshipped but feels blighted when He is neglected. To the existence of the Semitic God,worship or gross obedience is, what colour is to a flower, heat to fire or cold to ice. It is throughthe magic of this Semitic concept of Godhead that the Jewish, Christian and Muslim rulers wereable to avoid democratic accountability and rob people of their liberties in the name of DivineRights.The War of Human Rights against God's Rights can be assumed to have formally started withMagna Carta ( 1215 ) when King John of England was forced to grant the Charter (of publicliberties). Magna Carta reads:"In the first place have (we) granted to God, and by this our present Charter confirmedfor us and our heirs for ever that the English Church shall be free." (Clause 1)"No free man shall be arrested or imprisoned or disseised or outlawed or exiled or inany way victimised, neither will we attack him or send anyone to attack him, except bythe lawful judgement of his peers or by the law of the land." (Clause 39)For the first time in history, it is man who grants God's Church the right to be free. God can nolonger impose His will to be worshipped without man's approval. Since God's despotism isarrested, the King, His lieutenant on earth, is automatically subjected to the Law of the land andcannot do as he pleases.This flame of Human Rights, ignited in England during the early part of the 13th Century, flaredup in the United States of America. The Declaration of Independence, 1776, (leading to theworld-famous Constitution of the United States (1787) stated: "....all men are created equal,that they are endowed by their Creator with certain Unalienable Rights, that among these areLife, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."
 
The American Declaration does talk about Creator but makes it abundantly clear that man hasunalienable rights to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness, which cannot be interfered with evenby the Creator.The French Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen (1789) asserted categorically that"ignorance, forgetfulness or contempt of the rights of man to be the only cause of publicmisfortunes and the corruption of governments. "First article lays down: "Men are born and remain free and equal in rights .."Article two states: " ......These rights are Liberty, Property, Safety and Resistance toOppression."Article three declares: "The source of all sovereignty lies essentially in the Nation. Nocorporate body, no individual may exercise any authority that does not expresslyemanate from it."Article four reveals: "Liberty consists in being able to do anything that does not harmothers; thus the exercise of the natural rights of every man has no bounds other thanthose that ensure to the other members of society the enjoyment of these same rights.These bounds may be determined only by law (enacted by the Nation).One can see that the French Revolution demolished the idea of Divine Rights, which the man-hating religious wolves had invented to create absolute authority for themselves to drive,degrade and despoil people at will.The English, American and French achievements were, not only marvellous, munificent andmajestic in their own right, but their collective effect also became the foundation-stone of theUniversal Declaration of Human Rights (1948 ), which recognised "the inherent dignity and theequal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family as the foundation of freedom,justice and peace in the world. "The Declaration of Human Rights (1948) also stressed: "Human beings shall enjoy freedom of speech and belief and freedom from fear and want."Some of the articles of the General Assembly ought to be noted:Article 1 observes:All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed withreason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.2. Everyone is entitled to all the rights and freedom set forth in the Declaration, withoutdistinction of any kind, such as race, colour, sex, language, religion, political or otheropinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status.3. Everyone has the right to life, liberty and the security of person.4. No one shall be held in slavery or servitude: slavery and the slave trade shall beprohibited in all their forms.6. Everyone has the right to recognition everywhere as a person before Law.10. Everyone is entitled in full equality to a fair and public hearing by an independentand impartial tribunal, in the determination of his rights and obligations and of anycriminal charge against him.11. Everyone charged with a penal offence has the right to be presumed innocent untilproved guilty according to Law in a public trial at which he has had all the guaranteesnecessary for his defence.
