Jamal Hasan: Political Islam Is Dangerous to Mankind

E-mail Print PDF

Jamal Hasan
Jamal Hasan

Jamal Hasan is a Bangladeshi-American living in Washington D.C. He is a security analyst and co-editor of Beyond Jihad: Critical Voices from Inside Islam, which is now carried by over 130 academic libraries around the world. He is a founding member of the American Islamic Leadership Coalition.

The following is RadicalIslam.org National Security Analyst Ryan Mauro’s interview with Jamal Hasan:


Ryan Mauro: What can you tell us about the role of Bangladeshi Islamists in America?

Jamal Hasan: Bangladesh has historically been a place of moderate Islam. It was a place of composite culture with influences from Hinduism and Buddhism. Bangladesh came into being by challenging pan-Islamism, which Pakistan espoused.

The majority of the Bangladeshis in the U.S. are secular. However, many of them fall prey to the propaganda campaigns of Islamist groups like the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), etc.

The Jamaat-e-Islami of Bangladesh is closely connected with the Muslim Brotherhood and other stealth jihadist outfits around the world. The adherents of the Bangladeshi Jamaat do not necessarily change their worldview when they step into a Western country like the U.S. Many of the ex-members of the Bangladeshi Jamaat work under groups like the Muslim Ummah of North America and the North American Bangladeshi Islamic Community.

Both of these organizations are deeply connected with the major U.S.-based Islamist organizations. Currently, the secular government of Bangladesh is conducting trials of war criminals. A good number of the accused are leaders of Jamaat-e-Islami and its auxiliary death squads, Al-Badr and Al-Shams. It is quite logical to find that the Bangladeshi Islamists in the U.S. are against the war crimes trials.


Mauro: Why did you end up differently than them? Were you ever influenced by Islamist thought?

Hasan: I grew up in a very liberal society. In addition, both my parents were quite liberal. During my growing up in Bangladesh, linguistic nationalism was the main agenda of the politically conscious people. In the urban areas, the influence of Western culture was very significant. In short, I grew up with the Beatles and the Monkees. In addition, in the early '60s to '70s, secular Bengali culture did not allow any breathing space for Islamist thoughts.


Mauro: Why do you, as a Muslim, feel compelled to act against the Islamists?

Hasan: In 1971, the Pakistani military junta launched a genocidal attack on freedom-loving Bangladeshis of the erstwhile East Pakistan. All the Islamist parties of Pakistan sided with the genocidal and barbaric Pakistani army. The Pakistani Islamists and their Bangladeshi cohorts killed innocent Bangladeshis in the name of “saving Pakistan” and “saving Islam.”

The sad episode of the Bangladesh Holocaust gave me the clear idea that political Islam is dangerous to humankind. The bloody birth of Bangladesh taught me not to trust the Islamists.


Mauro: It is sometimes argued that American groups founded by the Muslim Brotherhood have become independent and are moderate now. What do you think of this argument?

Hasan: The Muslim Brotherhood is a global Islamist network with a humane façade. It can be compared with the Jamaat-e-Islami of Bangladesh, which is still considered a moderate Muslim party by the U.S. Department of State.

Al-Qaeda and Hezbollah are overtly violent in order to impose their doctrine. Organizations like the Muslim Brotherhood and the Bangladeshi Jamaat-e-Islami have long-range plans.

See RadicalIslam.org.'s related article Gradualism: The Islamist Strategy for Victory

Their objectives are like those of any violent jihadist outfit. Yes, tactically, the Muslim Brotherhood has taken the course of moderation. However, this organization cannot be trusted. They are like the Bolsheviks of the former Soviet Union before 1917. It is very unfortunate that many Western leaders are yet to consider them adversaries. I think the American groups founded by the Muslim Brotherhood should be closely watched.

There is not such thing as moderate Islam
written by fine , January 24, 2013
There is moderate Muslims, and that became true due, to ignorance of real Islam as it came, in Quran and sunna . There is other reasons like the influence of western cultures, after the occupation of Europeans of the middle east .

Take the veil for instance..

All my grandmother generation wore covered from head to toe, including the face in a special cover called '' malhafa karata '' …..

by the time the French left Syria, that kind of cover almost disappeared and it turned to moderate cover called '' Eesharb '' ….my mother generation wore that kind of moderate cover …it covers head and neck in a loose tie with body covered in a coat like shape that reaches to mid way under the knee with thick hoses…

My generation kept the '' Eesharb'' but wore moderate colorful but modest outfits and light wight hoses .

This kind of moderation in dress, I find is disappearing again unfortunately , the full coverage veils is coming back as I sow during the last time I visited . I see it as reverting back, or a back lash of the little freedoms,we were EXPOSED to through out the 60th and the 70th.

Thanks to the Muslim brotherhood, women are being intimidated and shamed into full cover these days .

This will not last long … I might not live long enough to see it … but I feel the coming generations will change and grow out of the influence of the extremists again due to exposer to the outer world through the internet, and western movies .

Hasan: I grew up in a very liberal society. In addition

So there is the problem. The sooner Islamic sharia in enforced the less pain in society. The sharia forbids this liberal stuff that leads to men becoming infidels. Western secularism corrupted this man. And he must be killed now. This is why the Taliban killed teachers and young girls who want an education that is unislamic. Better they only study Quran, so you don't have to kill them later.

You are right. Muslims e. g. abc, Kope and Malem should get themselves de-educated and then re-educated on Islamic literature only i. e. Koran, Sunna, Sharia et al.

Okay, let's assume sharia forbids things that leads men to become infidels.

What about the things sharia brings that leads men to become evil thugs toward women?
What about the things Islam brings that leads men to become evil towards non-Muslims? Non-Muslims, I might add, that have absolutely nothing to do with your Cult?
What about the fact you cult wants to impose itself on others that do not want it?

What GIVES YOU the right to decide who lives or dies based on their religious beliefs?
Are you considering yourself superior to your "god"? Because I never saw anybody get killed by god himself for having the wrong faith.

It's actually humans that kill in his name - And Islam take first place for this kind of human behavior.

Nice summary.

Of course you pose a threat abc.
You're no different to those Muslims that I encounter everyday....
The ones that are proselytizing on our streets, the preachers of Islamic supremacy and Islamic race hatred...the ones working hard with their little laptops who have an endless stream of hatred and propaganda disguised as a religion, the uneducated mass of rude and ignorant Muslims who mindlessly absorb the 'conspiracies' created by rabid Imams.
My mind isn't clouded by 'twisted facts', that's exactly what is being created by Muslims, you can't quite seem to tell the truth at all. None of the facts fit.
Look at that nonsense you tried to pass here regarding Naziism, Hitler and Mein Kampf.. it's pretty obvious that you know nothing regarding 20th Century history, and that you aren't old enough to remember any of it. You certainly didn't have any concerns about causing offence when you wrote about Jews being turned into soap...
That comment was designed to hurt someone, to batter them into submission and do damage..You spout bile and venom, you have no regard for the sanctity of human life, you have a them and us mentality, you are pure hatred and you are ignorant.
That's why you're a threat, you're volatile....

I know quite a few Muslims, I have talked to them....not all of them talk the way you do, or are quite so deliberately inflammatory.
I find that over the years some sort of sinister propaganda and indoctrination has affected them quite significantly.
Looks like it's rather malignant in your case.
Your childlike sense of logic and reasoning is clearly informed by Islamic radicalisation and supremacy.

Let's address your little issues and try and unwind you a little.
You encounter Muslims everyday, you still have not told me if you know any or have talked to any? Interesting word you use "encounter"
Proselytising on our streets? That's not illegal. Or are you trying to say there should be freedom of speech only for you and yours? Can't have it both ways sunshine.
Define "our streets". If they are illegals then report them and deport them. If they are not then its THEIR street too. A bit of bigotry is starting to shine through.
It's quite obvious you have not met an imam rabid or otherwise.
You want to discuss naziism today of all days.
I just responded to some idiot who kept implying that the mufti hussaini of Jerusalem was responsible for the holocaust. Mufti hussaini acted alone with a few followers after his land and assets got stolen by the Zionist state. At the time of hussainis actions there was no central authority in Islam. The reign of abdul majeed had finished due to the treachery of the house of saud. So to underhandedly imply that hussainis actions were representative of all Muslims was just poor form.

I'm glad you find me hard to bear because I should be, I'm the one who stands infront of you telling you how it is and calling your bullshit out.

I sound Asian now do I? So you saw some Asian dude use "overtly threatening behaviour to Members of the (white) public? So what did you do?
Step out and had a word in his shell? No?
Did you report it to your local policeman, this overtly threatening behaviour! No?
Or did you leave a yellow streak and disappear?
A coward, hypocrite and a bigot.

Cultural Islam is also dangerous!
written by Gnostic , January 27, 2013
You only have to take a look at Egypt. They are killing each other and will never stop. This is the logic of islamic thinking: blood for blood! It is not possible to run a country with such a mob! Or do the people really deserve anything better?

Even the women in their abayas are only shouting like animals for even more blood. Did you see the pictures on tv? It is unbelievable but I have seen it with my own eyes how islamic culture turns humans into barbaric beasts who only ffeel better when there is anothier blood spilling!

abc may "know a 100 who know another 100 who would know another 100 all practicing Muslims who are not a threat." But...
Muslims within your borders are a Fifth Column. The Muhammedan ummah is the sea within which the jihadis and the shari'ah assassins swim, and from which they emerge. You never know when one of them will develop the disease "Sudden Jihad Syndrome (SJS)" and Go All Jihad on you!

written by Yibel , January 30, 2013
The term "moderate Muslim" is a fallacy. ALL Muslim's do what they have been taught from crib to adulthood - which is to follow the Qur'an, the aHadith, and the Sunnah of their faux prophet Muhammad. Any Muslim that doesn't follow
Mohammed as a role model and obey the shari'ah is considered to be an infidel and is subject to the death penalty.

Two statements come to mind that describe Islam's true meaning and purpose:

First: Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan concisely portrays the inherently warlike agenda of mosques by quoting a renowned Islamic poet: “The minarets are our bayonets, the domes our helmets, the mosques our barracks, and the faithful our army.”

Second: Egypt's new president Morsi quoting the Muslim Brotherhood's Motto: "The Qur'an is Our Constitution, the Prophet is Our Leader, Jihad is Our Path, and Death in the Name of Allah is Our Goal."

In a nutshell, Islam is a death cult that didn't come from any loving God I have ever heard of or know of.

May the Real God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob spread the tabernacle of thy peace over all the earth. Glory to YHVH in the highest, and on earth peace to people of good will...

Soooo, abc. Who you going to believe: a sadistic demon-possessed pedophile,
murderer, thief, liar, and adulterer who called himself Muhammed, The Highly Praised One - talk about your self-centered narcissist?. Or Yah'shua/Jesus, who healed the sick and the lame, gave sight to the blind, cast out demons, raised the dead, and died for your sins!

written by Yibel , February 02, 2013
plagarized from the Talmud and other non-Biblical sources, all the HATE passages, and the hell and brothel-in-the -sky stuff - then all you're left with is shari'ah:

Robbing non-believers = good;
Enslaving and killing non-believers = good;
Raping slave girls = good
Pedophilia = good;
Extortion of non-believers = good:
Cruel and unusual punishments (chopping off hands and feet) for petty crimes, such as shoplifting, = good;
Cruel punishments such as beheading and crucifixion for "making mischief in the land" (whatever that is) = good;
Death penalty for telling the truth about Muhammd, or The Qur'an = good;
Domestic violence, such as wife beating and killing your children = good;
Treating women like cattle and having multiple wives = good;
Rules on how to behave around Muhammad (long dead - over 1300 years - but somehow SO relevant that Allah included in ITS best book which IT keeps under ITS throne in the sky, above the seven heavens, that special place where the sun also goes to rest at night and prays to Allah to let it get up in the morning...

The problem is abc, your act is running true to form...
It's basic psychology, starting with Social Identity Theory and Social Categorization moving through to Social Comparison.
Islam is clearly very busy hyping up the likes of you. By massively ramping up your sense of self image, you're easily manipulated into holding and spreading prejudices and discriminating against other races and cultures.....
It's nothing new, we've seen this all before and often it ends in extreme violence...

Islam 101, Jihad
written by Yibel , February 03, 2013
Islam is cultic (a brotherhood or ummatic) by nature with the theme: Allah is the sole creator of everything on heaven and Earth and Muslims are His only legitimate and righteous people. ALL remaining other people (Jews, Christians, Hindus etc.) are simply infidels and hated by Allah.
“For Allah guideth not those (“infidels”) who reject Faith (Islam).” Qur'an 5:67
No, only "good little Muslims"are worth guiding!

A Muslim is a person who gets his/her life's inspiration primarily from the Quran and secondarily from the Hadiths (the Sunna). Devout Muslims believe that life's all solutions are contained in the Quran and every good Muslim must believe in his heart that the Quran is the infallible-unchangeable-eternal book of a god called Allah. Muslims must follow this (Quran) word by word without any question.

Following this line of thinking, Muslims must also believe that anyone who does not agree with them is kaffir (liars) and an enemy of Islam; hence an enemy of Allah. A Muslim must oppose his/her enemy and kill him/her by any means whenever the opportunity may arise. This is called jihad. Muslim scholars consider jihad to be a pillar of Islam and required of all Muslims.

abc, Islam Watch is a site which tells the truth about Islam. This truth takes you way outside your comfort zone and causes you to react with violent, abusive words because you can't just Go All Jihad any other way.

Mozzies incapable of coherent argument for Islam
written by burke , February 04, 2013
All Mozzies can do is to make childish ejaculations, ad hominems and cry-baby accusations. They have been brain-damaged by banging their heads and swallowing a lot of nonsense that they all realize is nonsense. Jimi is going eventually to start eating yummy bacon and drinking delicious, cold, refreshing beer. Then he may meet some very wonderful kafirs. He will start wondering: 'Is all this hatred the right way to feel? Or have I been deceived by the mullahs who need the job?'

I've been looking for coherent reasoning from Mozzies, but so far they appear semi-literate, semi-braindead and full of entitlement and childish rage.
