Islam and Tolerance


  • Hate mongring Hindus and Muslim speak for Islam.

    It is same as which Hindu is allowed to speak against Muslim for reasonable talk.

  • @Iqbal Hahaha those people are famous hindu haters I'm not surprised by their views. I'm hindu because I like that it's best religion, it has freedom, spirituality, knowledge, love, kindness, great philosophy. Better you come back from foreign tribal cult of Arabia. It's shallow, violent, selfish and baseless. It's not our culture. You guys makes ashamed us we have great history, culture and you guys behaving like slaves of arab and fights with own brothers, religion and culture. That's really sad.

  • @Bharat Truthe is spoken by Dr ambedkar in his book "riidles of hinduism" , periyar in his book "true ramayans", poula richman and wendy doniger. follow them and reform yourself By Iqbal Husain - 3/6/2017 7:12:09 PM

  • May be He is not perfect but at least he dare to speak truth. What he want? Reform and awareness in Muslim community. Muslims should support instead of condemning. You can use his braveness, boldness, knowledge etc for reform of Muslim community. So sad we don't have any single Muslim who can dare to oppose wrong things in islam or in Muslim community. At least one man is speaking and trying you guys should support instead of trying to shut him Down. By Bharat Gadhavi - 3/6/2017 7:11:39 PM

  • @Iqbal Husain In hinduism criticism is welcome and there is no Fatwa to kill those who question some nonsense. But in Islam there is no room for crticism. If qhurran says Earth is flat, if questioned as wrong it is termed as blashphemy and the person will b attacked. How can the holy book teach people to kill, rape non believers mercilessly. Recently an ISIS person raped a 12 year girl telling that it is permitted in qhurran and further said that the girl after rape is closer to God. How can this b the teachings of God? Many lacunas r there in the verses. They need to b removed and thats what Tarek or salman or many thinkers say. Why say they r crossing the limit? By Subbarayan Ramasethu - 3/6/2017 7:09:25 PM

  • @Jayaraman Subri By the same logic we can say that TRUE Hinduism is understood by Dr Ambedkar , periyar , mahatma Phule and kanchan ilaih . By Iqbal Husain - 3/6/2017 7:09:02 PM

  • @Sanjiev Paul  Bigotry of Mr sanjiv can neither be explained through terms of religion nor any other parameter. (1) religion ---->> Hijab or similar type of its various versions were used by Mother merry . Christian nuns , jewish priest and many many spiritual orders of Hinduism. except few religious groups glorifying NUDITY like rajnish and some types of sex yoga cults entire religious text of ancient types endorsed hijab or similar types of its versions. (2) human rights FREEDOM OF CHOICE. when bestility (sex with animals) , nudity clubs and nude beaches sanctioned on basis of FREEDOM of choice then likewise hijab wearing women also deserve their rights. (3) Culture is something changing with passage of time. Like in ancient india there was No concept of IDOL worship. gradually practice of worship altered read and refer to plethora of Arya Samaj literature , Rahul sankratayen , historians like DD Kosambhi etc. what was legal and normal 50 years ago in France and India may not be so now. in next 50 years many things considered to be normal today will become bad in future. Therefore culture cannot and should not alter basic human values and humanity. People who defend cruelty , arson, rape , violence are not fit to be engaged in normal debates. A Humanist is a person who condemns and abhors all cruelties irrespective of the fact whether these are committed by brutes like ISIS , boko haram or by sangh pariwar and military junta of myamar By Iqbal Husain - 3/6/2017 7:07:56 PM

  • @Mohd Danish when someone breaks the law, he/ she ought to be jailed. Burqa has been banned in France , so why are these Muslim women going against the law? If they do not like the law, they can easily migrate to countries like Saudi, Iran etc where Hijab is a norm. Please check and see that the Rohingyas were the first to start a spat with the Buddhist populace, trying to get their Sharia...there was naturally a backlash. You seem to be ignorant on the Palestine issue....go to youtube and see that most of the attacks are being perpetrated by the Palestine people on innocent Israelis.

  • I think...At the time of spreading Islam the illiterate and barbarians are converted into muslims who highjacked true islam...They defined Islam in own interests and use it as forcefully to others....
    Now holy Islam is converted into Terrorism Religion....
    A ideal teachings are left and hate teaching of Islam is growing very fast....

  • A man who wears the shoe knows where it pinches ,Hindus Hinduism has been ridiculed by one and all especially by so called Sickulars and leftits commies ,they feel it is their right as enshrined in the constitution as free speech, none spoke then none speaks now. Islam was never subjected to such , tests, ridicule by the same morons who pride themselves to be called LIBERALS ,Tarek Fateh is also a liberal and opines without favour or fear enjoy the sojourn my friends without malice or hatred..

  • What do you mean by .. joined the enemy ??
    The worst enemy of muslims is the hadith & the sharia ..
    Before .. The world was not interested in the teachings or the practice of Islam ..
    but , now , slowly by slowly , even the most ignorant layman has come to know what Islam stands for ..
    Thanks to people like Tarek Fatak & other muslims like him who have opened our eyes to the Truth .. about Islam.
    The true Islam belongs to the ' Wareesh ' i.e. bloodline of Prophet Mohamad is his daughter Fatima & their children .. The Shias .. who are True Muslims.
    The family of Aiyesha , the child bride , upsurped the legacy of Islam for greed & so Sunni muslims are All of Aiyesha followers .. All Sunni muslims .. 
    Including the worshippers of the Black Stone ..
    Now , pl. tell me who is the .. Enemy

  • Aslkum: In current new age most of us made ourself , religeus type of people belonging to any religon or cuminist type, actually we r oppurtunists wants to gain d opportunity on d name of group we r related, actually to oby d discipline of any religon is very Hard Work, what we do not want to do bravely, otherwise all religons gives 85-90 % same or similar discipline to oby + only style of prayer to almighty to make us on discipline what particulars religon points out to oby . If we concentrate on Islam, after Kalma, In 1st compulsory Prayer 'Namaz' in 5 different times whole d day, After accepting all qualities supreme powers of Almighty God, we requests/ prays d God " SIRATUAL LAZINA ANAMTA ALIHIM " means pls make us able to oby d discipline what U 'God' wants rt from awaiking time to Sleeping time, ie, away from 1, Zina ' Rape' 2, Juan 'Gambling' 3, sharab ' drinking Alcohol 4,Gali galuch 'luse talks' 5, ---, Fair on all dealings & commitments ---, in all fields/directions of practical life /field. For such Muslims Almighty Allah says " KNOW U R D BEST PEOPLES BROUGHT FOR D GUIDANCE & REFORM OF ALL MANKIND U ENJOIN WHAT IS RIGHT & FORBID WHAT IS WRONG & BELIVE ON ALL MIGHTY ALLAH" Allay Imran ( QURAN) so this is our "Muslims" work/ responsibility to live in this world, weather we r doing d same---? If not this made us only Muslim Type of people ? There for occording to me in d subject cited above is d short cut method for new age, to come up as soon as possible & emphysize d rest of d world we r d Muslims, doing such hard work to provide facilities to all sons & daughters of Adam & Eve irrespective of colour, bread, regon & religon thy belongs to.Ameen By S Waqar A Naqvi - 3/5/2017 9:33:22 AM

  • Muslims have taken over France to a large extent. The administration is however not yet in their hands. France has banned the burka. You Muslims must respect the religion culture and traditions of others or else clashes..violent clashes are going to take place..all over the west. No one wants to be over whelmed by alien cultures. Every one values their traditions and beliefs. Why can't you follow a policy of live and let live...Sulh i kul..? By Jatinder Singh Dutta - 3/5/2017 9:29:24 AM

  • Since when new age islam or tarekh fateh etc start believing in freedom of expression and human rights . did they support women who are jailed in france etc for wearing hijab. do they support thousands of democratically elected leaders killed by military in egypt . do they ever express anguish for victims of racism like rogingyas in burma and palestinians in israeel. stop such hypocrisy you imposters By Iqbal Husain - 3/5/2017 9:28:35 AM

  • I agree with when Mr Naseer Ahmad speaks the following truth:

     “People like Tarek Fateh and Tufail Ahmed do not have an enlightened understanding of Islam nor are they trying to reform. Their understanding is at the same level as that of the Islamophobes or the extremists among the Muslims. Tarek is a hostile apostate who believes that the only solution is for all Muslims to apostatize like him”.

     As for freedom of expression, I do not support the so-called liberals like Tarek Fatah who support or use the rhetoric of "freedom of expression" to incite xenophobia, Islamophobia, hatred and extremism.

    Similarly I am also not one of those Muslims who, as a result of their outburst emotions, forget to present their authentic arguments in ways logical, rational and acceptable to the majority, when facing the people like Tarek Fateh.

  • Alam, great piece. I like your style of writing.

    We all need to question everything dumped on us. As individuals we have a responsibility to find he truth on our own, after all no mai ka lal will be there for us on the Day of Judgment. 

    I have just submitted one article on Tarek to Sultan, it is both critical of him as well as appreciative of his approach.  By Mike Ghouse - 3/2/2017 3:31:26 PM

  • Hello, I have dis overfed tarek-fatah  over the net last night. He should be an inspiration for most people searching truth. The way I see it is one segment of islam is trying to force the other segment of islam to think and be like them. And using m103  as the tool to create sympathy to better pass what I call a sharia mafia. Perhaps trudeau s inexperience in dealing with war tactics is what is behind this. Islam is multi faceted, just like canada, and I would hate for Canadian children born in muslim families to be forced to silence when they see something wrong. Courage to all of you who have to deal with the demons of religion.organized christinanity as in catholicism in quebec had it s grips on all of society. You can be sure many Canadians will be fighting for your right to live your religion secularly.  Thank you, we re all in this together. Peace!  By Martine Tiramani - 3/2/2017 2:31:46 PM

  • I can't agree with you more. The failure of the liberals that you point out in your last paragraph is stark. It has only harmed Indian Muslims. it also denigrates those Muslims who are trying to push against the tactics of the so-called Muslim leaders. A young Muslim student at JNU is presumed kidnapped and killed but not one of the 'leaders' has done a thing on his behalf. The hounding of Fateh at the Jashne Rekhta was a shameful thing. Those who displayed their 'love of Islam' did so because they had a soft target. The organizers could not do much against them, nor could Fateh. He was not there as a speaker; he was there in the same capacity as any other member of the audience. Those 'defenders of Islam' would not be found anywhere when it comes to defending the life and honor of a individual Muslim man or woman. To say that Fateh is inciting non-Muslims against Muslims is no different in logic from a claim that Teesta Seetalvad is inciting Muslims against non-Muslims when she exposes the criminal thinking of some Hindu leaders and activists.  By C M Naim - 3/2/2017 8:13:06 AM

  • There should be some sober and academic manner in which things and uttering of Takiq Fateh   could be put.

  • A wonderfully brave article sir.  Mullahs had a free run till now, but Mr. Tarek is openly challenging that.  So intolerance/hate against such a person is obvious. By Abhi - 3/2/2017 12:26:34 AM

  • respect.we need people like you and tarek fatah.mind blowing art By Devinder singh - 3/1/2017 11:53:59 PM

  • People like Tarek Fateh and Tufail Ahmed do not have an enlightened understanding of Islam nor are they trying to reform. Their understanding is at the same level as that of the Islamophobes or the extremists among the Muslims. Tarek is a hostile apostate who believes that the only solution is for all Muslims to apostatize like him.
    He does not represent the common Muslim.  If he his trying to represent Muslims or reform Islam, he should address gatherings of Muslims which he never does because he is unwelcome in such gatherings.

    He is a mischief monger and therefore a darling of the Islamophobes. The present political dispensation must be vary of people like Tarke Fateh and Tufail Ahmed who have no standing with the Muslims and are seen by them as enemy. If such people are encouraged just because they are only too willing to parrot what the majoritarian bigots want to hear, then this will only alienate the Muslims further.

    I agree that free speech must be encouraged. NAI should hold a televised debate with the likes of Tarek and Tufail to counter their anti Muslim and anti Islam venom. That is the better way to fight these mischief mongers rather than ban them which only lends credence to what they say.

    Neither the Mullahs nor the Tareks and the Tufails can be the standard bearers for the common Muslims. 
    By Naseer Ahmed - 3/1/2017 10:18:23 PM

  • It is not Tarek Fateh who is inciting the non muslims against muslims. It is the double standards practised and the hounding that muslims and non muslims with a different view point recieve at the hands of there co religionists which actually proves the observations of people like Tarek fateh which leads the average person to vote for Trump and others like him.  By awaya - 3/1/2017 8:39:26 PM

  • Tarek Fateh's allegiance lies with his Canadian paymasters and he is as much of an anathema for many of us as the supremacist mullahs. But freedom of speech is more sacred than both of them as long as they use their own appropriate outlets. When haters of Islam spew their hatred on  a progressive Muslim site such as the NAI it is just an exercise in provocation. It is also bad manners.
