Constructive Criticism

Combating Intolerance and Discrimination against Muslims a presentation by Ambassador Hemayet Uddin
On page 6 of the screed, we encounter more turgid text.

Criticism or commentary must be constructive and should not run contrary to the international community’s efforts to develop tolerance and mutual understanding. The cause of promoting tolerance and understanding may be defeated if one were to take a position of championing freedom of expression by publishing, broadcasting or telecasting items knowing fully that the report may spark off violent consequences.

  • Criticism or commentary must be constructive

How does one perform constructive criticism & commentary on doctrines which sanctify & mandate conquest, genocide & terrorism?

  • should not run contrary to the international community’s efforts to develop tolerance and mutual understanding

There is nothing less rational than tolerance of intolerance:

  • 3:85. And whoever seeks a religion other than Islam, it will never be accepted of him, and in the Hereafter he will be one of the losers.
  • 3:110. You [true believers in Islâmic Monotheism, and real followers of Prophet Muhammad  and his Sunnah (legal ways, etc.)] are the best of peoples ever raised up for mankind; you enjoin Al-Ma’rûf (i.e. Islâmic Monotheism and all that Islam has ordained) and forbid Al-Munkar (polytheism, disbelief and all that Islam has forbidden), and you believe in Allah. And had the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) believed, it would have been better for them; among them are some who have faith, but most of them are Al-Fâsiqûn (disobedient to Allah – and rebellious against Allah’s Command).
  • Sahih Bukhari Volume 6, Book 60, Number 80:

    Narrated Abu Huraira:

    The Verse:–“You (true Muslims) are the best of peoples ever raised up for mankind.” means, the best of peoples for the people, as you bring them with chains on their necks till they embrace Islam.

Islam has no respect nor tolerance for our beliefs, neither does it respect us.

  • Sahih Bukhari Volume 1, Book 8, Number 387:
    Narrated Anas bin Malik:
    Allah’s Apostle said, “I have been ordered to fight the people till they say: ‘None has the right to be worshipped but Allah.’ And if they say so, pray like our prayers, face our Qibla and slaughter as we slaughter, then their blood and property will be sacred to us and we will not interfere with them except legally and their reckoning will be with Allah.” Narrated Maimun ibn Siyah that he asked Anas bin Malik, “O Abu Hamza! What makes the life and property of a person sacred?” He replied, “Whoever says, ‘None has the right to be worshipped but Allah’, faces our Qibla during the prayers, prays like us and eats our slaughtered animal, then he is a Muslim, and has got the same rights and obligations as other Muslims have.”
  • The cause of promoting tolerance and understanding may be defeated if one were to take a position of championing freedom of expression by publishing, broadcasting or telecasting items knowing fully that the report may spark off violent consequences.

Once again, the Ambassador, speaking for 57 Islamic nations, says “shut up or we’ll kill you.  Our criticism of Islam is to be condemned and censored; Islam’s demonization, cursing & declaration of perpetual war is all fine and good.  The Mullahs & Imams can wave swords and shout “kill them” till  they’re blue in the face, thats accepted, but I must not tell you that Islam does that. Nonsense!
