Islam Under Scrutiny by Ex-Muslims

Boom Boom Bangladesh

Finally, the toxic trees have started yielding fruit. After years of nurture, the great Madrasa Enterprise of Bangladesh is about to see the light of success. Highly (Un) educated, disciplined and dedicated piranhas are ready to conquer the country. Allah must have enjoyed the recent Islamic fireworks in Bangladesh and been mightily, mercifully, and compassionately pleased by the achievement of some of his real acolytes.

Bangladesh is subdivided into six administrative divisions and sixty-four districts. The pious Muslims rattled almost all of these districts with home made Islamic bombs. Casualties were minimum but everyone was made poignantly aware of the power of the Mullahs. In many places, leaflets from the Jamatul Mujahidin, a banned Islamic party were found demanding the implementation of sharia law - the hand chopping, throat cutting decrees of Allah. Their message was very clear: either you accept Sharia law or else- 

Everyone knew it was coming, many other countries even warned about it; some South Asian journals wrote articles full of dire warnings, but the Bangladeshi government simply denied the obvious and banned those magazines to protect themselves from the that ever-lurking embarrassment that goes by the name of reality. Naturally, the Mullah brothers felt very offended, their existence was denied and their right to practice Islam in proper fashions was not respected. So it was only natural that they had to work a few standard Islamic miracles to express their displeasure.

The Jamatul Mujahidin brothers rightfully decided to teach a lesson. Most of the women of Bangladesh don't wrap themselves in 'trash bags', i.e. Burkhas, nor do they commonly grace themselves with the head diaper known as the 'hijab'. Although, television channels are doing their best to teach the Quran, many programs are full of music and dance. Some Islamic banks are already in action to destroy the economy of the country but still there are traditional banks based on 'riba' or interest. In some places having a beard is a required qualification for a man to land a job, but the whole country is still not complying with this all-important procedure.   

In 1972, shortly after independence, the Islamic Academy of Bangladesh was banned. Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, the architect of the nation and a failed leader, happily restored this institution to its pristine splendor in March of 1975, and so the seed of Islamic lunacy was re-sown. Although, Sheikh Mujibur Rahman initiated the spark of independence, he weathered the storm in a Pakistani jail while the valiant citizens of the country grappled with the Pakistan army.

He returned from Pakistan to the newly born Bangladesh on January 10, 1972. Confused and clueless Sheikh Mujibur Rahman made a great many hasty decisions that inadvertently harmed the new nation. Under Saudi pressure, he unconditionally pardoned captured Pakistani Army officers who instead, should have been dragged to a war crimes tribunal. Saudi Arabia did not recognize the new country and Muslims of newly born Bangladesh were not able to visit Mecca, the wonderland of Islam. Saudi Arabia cleverly blackmailed Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and he failed to resist Islamic pressure.

Sheikh also created a single political party system to ensure that power would be firmly in his hands indefinitely, not unlike Idi Amin of Uganda who unilaterally declared himself president for life. He had a vision for a secular country but at the same time recognized the OIC (The Organization of the Islamic Conference) and caved in to the Islamic pressure of other Muslim countries. 

Sheikh Mujibur Rahman was killed and after a short interval, Ziaur Rahman, an army officer and another wannabe 'Idi Amin' came to power. This military dictator slowly created his own political party, the Islamic flavored BNP (Bangladesh Nationalist Party). He too wanted to rule the country forever. Probably he is the number one culprit for allowing Islam to infect the country. Although Sheikh Mujibur Rahman encouraged some Islamic formulas without fully understanding the potential consequences, Ziaur Rahman bent himself to the Islamic sentiment of the general public. The docile people of Bangladesh are god-fearing and are unaware of the real nature of Islam, manufactured in Saudi Arabia. Ziaur Rahman inserted Islamic code into the constitution and gave citizenship back to Golam Azam, the traitor and leader of the political party Jamat-E-Islam that helped the Pakistan Army carry out its genocide. And so it came to pass that a wartime collaborator became a coordinator of peace with the help of a greedy dictator.

Under the reign of Ziaur Rahman, Saudi Arabia donated $1000 to each of the country's many mosques to build madrasas and breed piranhas. $1000 is no great sum of money but in a country like Bangladesh, where the cost of living is relatively low compared to many other countries; it's a hefty amount that can go a long way. The money was used to successfully sow the seed of Islamic terrorism. Once these halfway houses were opened, they never closed the door and they just kept breeding increasingly vicious varieties of piranhas. 

Ziaur Rahman was assassinated and another Lieutenant General, Hussain Muhammad Ershad seized power in a military coup. He followed the same game plan of all the other dictators: he founded his own political party and stayed in power until 1990, when he was forced to resign under pressure by an angry coalition of opposition parties. Before leaving the throne, Ershad did his best to establish Islam. He followed the earlier standpoint of promoting Islam in the culture - he made it mandatory to study Islamic books from 1st grade to 6th grade and his puppet parliament passed a legislative amendment, making Islam the state religion.

Since 1991, the wife of late Ziaur Rahman, Begum Khaleda Zia and the daughter of the founding father of the nation, Sheikh Hasina are representing two major parties of the country, respectively the BNP and the Awami League. Both of these leaders are simply worthless, not even fit to run a small grocery store. When one is the ruling party, the other would call for a nationwide boycott to cripple the government and the economy. These two leaders are in competition to prove themselves the best Muslimahs in the world. They have been sponsoring all the Madrassas of the country and often visit Mecca to dance with the ghost of Mohammad.

Legend has it, that the Roman Emperor Nero played the fiddle while Rome burned. The Jamat-E-Islam party of Bangladesh is doing the same thing. Sorry, my mistake, fiddling is very unIslamic, far more likely that they're holding special prayer sessions extolling the beauty of Allah. Despite the treacherous nature of the Jamat-E-Islam, both major political parties have joined them to form a coalition government, bestowing a comfortable advantage to Jamt-E-Islaim party.

After the historic bomb blasts, the Jamat-E-Islam party immediately took to the streets, protesting and condemning the act. Who else but a thief would say, "No", even before he is asked if he had stolen anything? The Jamat-E-Islam party is locked in an agonizing cooperation with the two female leaders of the country. Scarce few can understand the pain they must be feeling. According to Islam, living under a woman's rule is as disgusting as eating a lard sandwich. Yet, they participate in this process of "devilocracy," (the Islamic version of democracy). They only have one goal: that of eventually attaining  - no matter what it takes - the majority of seats in Parliament and establishing Sharia law.

Will the bomb blasts help Jamat-E-Islami? Of course they will be benefited. They will look like innocent angels compared to the Jamatul Mujahidin. What they are doing now, the Jamat-E-Islami did in the past. The Jamat-E-Islam would love to have someone to do the dirty work for them. It's an Mafia trick: you have someone else do the killing so that you can deny any association and come off as the squeaky clean defender of law and order. It will be no surprise if in the future the Jamatul Mujahidin becomes another recognized political party of Bangladesh.

In truth, the bomb blasts carry no threat to the country. It's a sure bet that the government will catch a few random perpetrators and bring the situation under control temporarily, but the process of Islamization will continue through the government's blind support for the Middle Eastern satrapies and through the diligent work of the soldiers of Allah produced by the Madrasas and through the oblique support of the Quran-only Muslims.

The new trend of Quran only Muslims is doing a wonderful job of hoodwinking the general public in dark. This branch of Muslims is rapidly capturing the market of Bangladesh... faster than an epidemic. When 'hybrid car' style pious Muslims run on Quran and ahadith, Quran only Muslims conveniently re-brand the Quran, 'the personal diary of Mohammad,' as the faultless book of humanity, as if it does not talk about killing and maiming.

Just as all rivers meet the ocean, all kinds of Muslims become Mullahs at the end of the road. No matter how they interpret the Quran, they all change to fundamentalist when they decide to follow Islam religiously. Those who are afraid of Al-Qaida, don't 'get it' that Al-Qaida is only a brand name; all the generic groups of Islam, i.e. Hamas, Jamatul Mujahidin, Jamat-E-Islam and many others belong to the same suite.

Bangladesh has the third largest Muslim population in the world. An estimated 144,319,628 people live in this small country with approximately the same population as Russia. Since her independence from Pakistan, Muslims have grown faster than mosquitoes by virtue of their high birth rate, which is inspired by the Mullahs' sermons. The growing population helps Islamists in many ways. With an unemployment rate of almost 40%, many citizens suffer from frustration and find no satisfaction or meaning in life. Shrewd Islamists assure them a happy afterlife if they practice Islam faithfully and the rule is, the more a person practices Islam, the more he becomes inhuman. Those who cannot attend traditional schools are always welcome to join Madrassas. So things are guaranteed to be hopping for a long time to come in Boom Boom Bangladesh.

Yet despite all the negativities, a ray of hope is shining through the Islamic overcast. A good number of Bangladeshi intellectuals have left Islam and are striving to expose the real threat of this murderous cult. They are trying to educate the public about the danger of Islam and it's consequences. Their numbers also include many renowned, pro-capitalistic economists. They side with America and are eager to attract American technology and investment to the country, an effort deserving of admiration. When China, India and even Pakistan are trying to capture the markets of America, it's wise to join the flock.

History bears witness to the fact that intellectuals might be loath to fight, but are ever eager to spur on the required struggles. Like catalysts, they initiate the revolution and stimulate people's vigor. The people of Bangladesh are mild, but they also know how to fight when the situation demands it. They proved it in 1971 and they can do it again. Generally, Bangladeshis are sincere and hard-working people. Those who live abroad, work hard for a living and strive to excel in their chosen fields of work. Under even half way decent leadership, they would do well in their own country and eventually build a prosperous nation. But unfortunately, the country's shameless political parties have no agenda beyond their own pockets. No one understands or dares to implement the basics like separation of mosque and state, population control, strict law and order, human rights.  Such issues are unknown to these criminals. Their minds are clouded with Islam and greed.

Only a new stream of leadership can change this course and it is the job of Bangladeshi intellectuals to promote it.
