Where is the Muslim outrage?
As a Muslim
I am outraged at this nonsense going on in Sudan and Saudi Arabia.
When Prophet Muhammad's cartoons were published, the few Muslims around the
world were outraged to the point of becoming destructive. They burned the
embassy in Syria. Their contention was that the Prophet cannot be contained in
an image, they were right but they were dead wrong on destroying any property,
it went against the very principles taught by the Prophet "to forgive the wrong
doers". Not enough of us were outraged against those criminals to make a
Ms. Gibbons affectionately calls the Teddy bear "Muhammad" and the fanatics cry
foul. The good for nothing silent majority needs to step up and condemn the
individuals and the government of Sudan for treating a lady for her benevolence
in such an ugly manner. She probably would not have named, had she known about
Prophet Muhammad would be saddened with these guys behavior.
When the Buddha Statue, a world heritage monument was destroyed in Pakistan last
month, Where was the Muslim outrage?
When the Buddhist Monks were locked up in Burma, where was the Muslim outrage?
What is good for the goose has got to be good for the gander. The third Caliph
Omar punished his own son against a complaint from a Jewish businessman; such
was the sense of Justice. Where is that sense of justice and fairness now?
Mirza A. Beg writes, "…a woman in Saudi Arabia was gang-raped. She was seen in a
car with a person not of her family. She was also found guilty along with the
rapists and recommended punishment under the Saudi Law."
That was not bad enough, when she appealed to the Media her punishment was
doubled because she made it public. Where is the Muslim outrage? Why aren't the
Muslims jamming the phone lines of Saudi Embassies around the world?
Why aren't the Muslims decrying the Saudis for calling it an Islamic Law? It
ain't, it is their bizarre law of shameless men who do not follow their own
religion of peace.
"In Sudan, a British teacher was arrested for the "sin" of helping her class of
seven year olds to name a cuddly teddy bear, Muhammad. Yesterday, after a court
trial, she was sentenced to 15 days in jail, and it is reported that a crowd was
clamoring for a death sentence. In a closed dictatorial country a crowd does not
gather, it is allowed or urged to gather." Writes Mirza Beg. Where is the Muslim
The ones who forgive are the dearest to the lord. Where is this verse buried?
There were members of the state legislature in India who publicly called to kto
kill a heretic, and there was a cleric who offered a bounty for killing the same
heretic. Where is the Muslim outrage against these criminals?
God says "Killing one human is like killing the whole humanity". Why isn't this
Darfur is bleeding, where is the Muslim outrage?
The time has come for the Muslims to speak up; the good for nothing majority
needs to speak up, and let their outrage be known.
No doubt, the one's who express their outrage are not given the outlet. The
media does not see sensationalism in this. At the world Muslim Congress we will
continue to compile the outrage expressed my Muslims around the world.
I urge the media to give voice to the Muslims who speak up. It gives hopes to
the mankind, that whether we are Muslims, Christians, Jews, Hindus, Sikhs,
Buddhists or Zoroastrians, we face the common enemy – ignorance. Ignorance
displayed by super literate people as well as illiterate.
