Salman Rushdie – Islam and Violence.

Posted by QB on October 14, 2006

Rushdie called for a reform movement in Islam including a reinterpretation of the Quran to take it away from the “literalists”.

“Nobody who reads the text neutrally can avoid the conclusion that it’s a bit of a mess. When people like me argue that there’s a need for a reform movement inside Islam, it’s not just to say, ‘No, we don’t want terrorists,’ it’s to say in order to unshackle this philosophy from the literalists, literalist chains, we have to create a world in which people can question the first principles, you have to create to world in which people can rethink the core of the text. And until that happens you will have a paralysed culture,” he said.

“I just come from a tradition in the Muslim world of the subcontinent which rejected the veil completely. If you had asked my grandmother to wear a veil, she would probably have hit you. There’s no woman I know in India or Pakistan, in my entire acquaintance, who would have been willing to wear a veil. So my view of the veil is it’s an antiquated thing which oppresses women. And it seems to be perfectly proper to say so,” he said.

I agree what Salman Rushdie said with one very strong disagreement that Qur’an must not be taken as literal. Salman Rushdie is again wrong when he said that to understand the message of Qur’an we have to look into historical backgroud is again not correct. The violence mostly comes from the history carefully wrapped with “Saying of Prophet Muhammad” or “Hadith” which has become so sacred that nobody can question these illogical stupid historical stories.  Qur’an does not need any outside source help to understand its message. The message is simple and easily and makes more sense when understand from within the message.

    It won’t fix terrorism

    quran 9:111 muslims are people who kill and are killed for allah

  2. Tom,

    9:111 Allah hath purchased of the believers their persons and their goods; for theirs (in return) is the garden (of Paradise): they fight in His cause, and slay and are slain: a promise binding on Him in truth, through the Law, the Gospel, and the Qur’an: and who is more faithful to his covenant than Allah. then rejoice in the bargain which ye have concluded: that is the achievement supreme. –

    There are laws of war in Old Testament, Gospel and Qur’an but when you look at them in context it all make sense. I can quote plenty of verses from Old Testament and try to prove that religion teaches violence which will be like joining hands with radical Jews, Christians and Muslims to preach and keep the hatred alive between them and I refuse to be part of anybody teaching and preaching hatred in the name of religion and God.

    In the name of Allah, The Beneficient, The Most Gracious.

    Dear readers,

    it is such a pathos that people are tryting to mingle and wrangle the revelations so as to suit their own way of life, instead of trying to strive in correcting ones own habits to align with and obey the commandments laid in the Holy Noble Qur’an that were demonstrated and showed by the beloved Prophet(PEace and Blessings of Allah be Upon him).

    As for the article, it is a perfect potray of how the western media uses not only the veil of annonymity but also the excuse of free-speach to convey their animosity against a religion, which addresses the novelty and advancement of the human individual, both spiritually and intellecutally, not only with inremental improvment but on a quantum leap breakthroughs that are now being proved scientifically.

    I would like to request, humbly, from both the writers and the readers (target audience) to please do not use the English language to volley yours own opinion, though it does matter in compounding ones own understanding, but base it on what the Holy Scripture attempts to inculcate and cultivate in each human, so that not only would each individual submit ones will to the will of the Creator and admit the Oneness of God, but also would be able to understand the truth and reality of ones existence in this fabricated and vice world, which unfortunately because of our doing has become unfathomable.

    May God Bless us and guide us to the right path of Submission, to the folds of Islam

    Thank you

Forget the biggoty please and grow up.Most girls here like to wear the head scarf and so where does that hurt you? I wear a cross and nobody says anything either. Respect and you will be respected too and read the Quaran you’ll be surprised at how much it has in common with our Old and New Testement.
