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.
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."
