discuss any religious topic with Muslims anywhere; most of them
would frequently tell you, "You have to be proud to be a
Muslim". I learn the same item whenever I argue with my
Muslim friends, relatives, colleagues etc. on internet (MSN messenger
chat), phone, or in person. Now, I am tired of listening to that
phrase. To answer that ridiculous dialogue I've got some questions
with the letters, "WH". These are,"why
dowe have to be proud to be Muslims?", "what
have we done?", and "who are we?". Please
let me response those questions in several paragraphs below.
How many scientists, astronauts, biologists etc. do we find from
our Muslim background? General senses and statistics tell us about
95% scientists or astronauts are from the White and Christian
backgrounds and about 4.9 % from other backgrounds. Aren't
these innovative people making the world smaller and smaller with
their wits? I think I am absolutely right on it. Where can I find
Muslims amongst those creative people? Are we Muslims still
proud of being nothing?
The modern equipments, automotives, appliances etc. we are now
using such as computers, internet, Windows & other software,
telephones, TVs, radios, clocks, A/Cs, freezes, aeroplanes, cars,
trains; taking allopathic medicines, having modern
treatments; wearing comfortable stuffs like shirt-pant,
underwear, eyewear, durable shoes, and many more stuffs for our
daily needs. Can we survive well now without those useful stuffs
and technology in this century? Can anyone show me the strong
evidence that any of those things are invented by Muslims? Are
we Muslims in any discovery or progressive work? I do not think
so. Are we still proud of this failure?
We had somewhat better economy only for 24 years looooooong time
ago within 1400 years when there was a secular state rather than
Islamic. How many countries are now economically strong
in 57 Muslim nations? Unlike Saudi Arab, UAE Qatar, Bahrain, and
Kuwait, these countries are rich for nothing but petro-dollar.
They could never be wealthy unless the West helps them to raise
oil from the deserts. And in Malaysia, the most industries are
owned by the Chinese origin people. That's why it's got
typical better economy. How about the rest of the Muslim countries?
Like 65 % people can not even eat properly in those places. Are
we still proud of our collapsed economy?
What are some of the true (pukka) Muslim brothers doing? Our brothers
do suicide bombing, hijack aeroplanes etc. inspired by our religion
to shed blood of the innocent people. The whole world is now scared
of Jihadi Organisations. Who are making these barbaric work? No-one
but our brothers!!! Are we still proud of the bloody jobs?
Because of some of our Muslim brothers only, there are extra security
forces in the West. In addition, USA has launched fingerprint
system lately at the airports and the crossing points;
US immigration and air carriers have produced some special types
of software which promptly recognise all Muslim names. As well,
recently, airlines like British Airways had to cancel some flights
to the US continent for the possible security threats. Why are
these all happening for? Just for our Muslim brothers!!! Are
we still proud of these humiliations?
Our brothers, the real Muslim people from Middle East do not give
citizenships even to the guest Muslims although someone is born
in those vast deserts. In addition, countries like Saudi Arabia
and other some Middle Eastern countries grant social benefits
upon sexes, races and religions. Shall we still speak out that
we are proud of the rude discrimination?
Ihave a lot of friends in North America who are Shiks,
Hindus, Christians, Buddhists, Jews and many others. I wonder
why I always get to hear the same outdated folk stories only from
Muslims such as praising the great leaders Saddam Hussein and
Arafat; criticising Israel, USA, and Bush's policies
always; who is winning or losing in next US elections?;
Jews leaders and their influences in USA etc. It is really
amazing!!! I never hear these types of rubbish criticisms from
my other non-Muslim friends. So, shall we still be proud of
our identical holy thinking?
Actually, who are we? How do we learn
Islam? How do get to raise our voice? As a matter of fact,
our ancestors are brainwashed by the Arab Bedouins several hundred
years ago that's how we are now Muslims. Since then, we try
to become the typical followers of Prophet Mohamed, and we start
believing in almighty Allah and Holy Koran. I believe no-one
has any objection to accept this truth. No matter what there
are some or many good learning materials in Koran and Mohamed's
life. Please, let me not discuss other teaching parts from
Koran and Mohamed for now. By the way, can we Muslims even
utilise the good parts from Koran and Hadiths? These books
strongly teach us NOT to cheat, lie, do bribery, do corruptions
etc. However, what results do we see in the Muslim world? Muslim
countries like Bangladesh, Pakistan etc. climb the top positions
for corruptions. In addition, leaders like Yasir Arafat, Arabian
Royals and so on are exploiting their national revenue. On average
data, the rape rate in the Muslim countries is much higher than
non-Muslim nations. Actually, there are lots more things to write
on corruptions and crimes. Anyways, where are the wonderful ingredients
of Islam here? Who fails to keep the Koran's and Mohamed's
those priceless doctrines? Of course, we Muslims fail to organise
the law and order situation in our lands. Are we Muslims still
proud of our disorders, crimes, and corruptions?
some Islamists might want to beat me that why I blame all Muslims
because of few bigots. However, I do not impose all criticisms
on all Muslims. Please let me clarify a possible claim of some
Islamists or Muslims: it is good to hear that they do not like
the terrorisms of some of our brothers. But, when USA and UK increase
securities in their lands, take some necessary steps against
terrorisms,and go fighting with our terrorist brothers,
then why do those Islamists or most Muslims defy USA and UK, and
keep supporting our terrorist brothers? During the war on terrorism
in 2001, I observed from different sources that approximately
95% Muslims around the world were against the Anglo-American war.
Now, which one I should choose from possible comments:
hating or supporting terrorist brothers? I am not a fool I would
pick both of them. Whatsoever, in fact, the main thing is nothing
but most Muslims are affected with Islamic virus (SKM's
idea, written in other language). These days, it would be
the funniest thing to claim that "we are proud to be Muslims"
without any strong reasons.
Bangladeshi illiterate Mullahs told me few years ago, "those
who believe human are originally generated from the monkeys (Darwin's
theory); those people are really from the monkeys. But, we believe
in Allah, so we are NOT from the monkeys.
Allah sends us to this earth".
As we know, almost all Muslims have the same ideas, and
they frequently invite us to cry out that "we are proud to
be Muslims", so, who really knows, those Mullahs'
idea might not be wrong.
