Couple of my comments from FB, for my record:
In relation to this article, I wrote:
Do my Muslim friends wish to suggest that this is the work of the USA?
I’ve reached the point where I cannot be deceived about Islam.
EVERYTHING evil about the Quran is proven on a daily basis in Saudi Arabia, the hub-centre of Islam. Everything that Saudi Islam does is also done by Taliban, ISI, Al Qaeda, ISIS, and the lot. This, my friends, is the TRUE Islam. Be not deceived.
Your Islam, the religion of peace, is (I’m sorry to say) fake. You delude yourself.
I’m happy for you to continue with your fake Islam, but please be clear that the world can see through to the evil core of the real Islam. The facts scream out for attention.
There is no escape today. The truth will out. Copious amounts of well-analysed information make clear, without any iota of doubt, that the Quran is pure evil; pure murder of honest humans.
A Muslim FB friend objected:
Well the saudis don’t understand islam rightly. They certainly dont understand the islam that comes from quran. U study quran and see for yourself whether quran commands such kinds of things. It does not. Quran does not command to force the apostates for anything. Everyone is free to leave islam if they so desire. Quran does not say that such apostates should be harmed in any way. At best we can expalin things to them…..if u get a bad impression about islam because of all of these….this is not your fault…even the muslim scholars have done mistakes in these issues. And obviously u will take that impression of islam that is widespread. It is just natural.
I recommend that u learn islam only from Quran….and see for yourself. Can u show me one aayah in Quran that gives such commands for apostates???.
My further comment (details are in Wikipedia)
Apostasy is a crime in almost all Muslim countries. In some it is punishable with death, in others with imprisonment.
Please note that the Islamic God was very confused (because he had nothing to do with the Quran: which was entirely cooked up by Mohammed) and put in a lot of verses in Quran and made Mohammed say and do a lot of things which are interpreted by Islamic scholars to require violence against apostates. But also said things in a confused manner, so a few scholars think he didn’t mean to kill apostates.
That’s why I say that while the world is being terrorised by Islam, it is nothing compared with the terror Muslims face from Islam on a daily basis in their lives.
Islam is like a mafia. Once you join it, you can’t leave it without being killed or otherwise disabled. That’s why most apostates flee their Islamic nations for the West – where they can’t be killed.
Muslims in most Muslim countries are stuck with Islam for life.
I had concluded earlier that Islam is a death cult. Well, there is plenty of evidence that this is indeed the case. A most uncivilised “religion”, entirely incompatible with truth and liberty.

Further to my previous discussion, one more exchange:
hi sanjeev. thank you for your reply… now..what do we Muslims who are ‘intrinsically’ good do? Where do we go from here? Change religion? There are many good things in Islam I would not want to give up..and until Bush attacked Iraq..we had no problems..no sunni. shia divide. We kept our beliefs to ourselves..had peaceful lives..and lived in congeniality with all..the Muslim today is between a rock and a hard place. Don’t you think? Because however much we defend our Holy book, people like you will not believe and the daesh will go on their mudering spree.
I’m no one to advise.
My case is simple. The day I realised that Hinduism was evil (which I realised when I was around 12 or 13), I abandoned my parent’s religion. I consider the caste system to be the purest form of evil. But that’s only one of the many evil things in Hinduism.
I have only one life to live. I choose to live a life of total integrity. I believe we are free humans who must seek the truth, no matter how unpleasant the truth may be.
Better to know the truth and to deal with it, than support untruth. I think we humans are born good (show me one toddler who is evil) but our imaginations make us evil. I don’t like imagined “facts”, since they divide us and make (some of) us worse than the worst beasts.
FURTHER RESPONSE FROM COMMENTATOR
Hi sanjeev. No religion is perfect. But you have to face it..it is a guide. Moral and ethical. So sad that only the worst of religion is highlighted and displayed. Is atheism better? No. I think not. Most of the rag tag and bobtail are not sophisticated enough to be comfortable with atheism. It will be the freedom of the wild ass. Only highly intelligent people can be atheistic and be ethical and moral. Others will become barbaric. Then there is the spuritual side. It is a different dimension..it nurtures the soul, eliminates loneliness. Depression. We humans need it..let the extremists go to their doom. They chose it. But I say let us cling onto our faith..even if it be a straw..I need the comfort I get from sajda. It makes me feel iam not alone. Bye for now. Hussaina

I came across Zakir Naik some time ago and commented about him here. In that post I focused on his bigotry (he is absolutely extremist in his views – a very dangerous demagogue).
But he is a clown, as well. A true circus joker.
I couldn’t help laughing throughout the two videos below. Joker personified.
Btw, this FURTHER proves (if any such proof was needed) that the Quran is purely MAN-MADE. God has NOTHING (not one zilch) to do with it.
Zakir Naik, the nut case, on evolution
Zakir Naik’s TOTAL idiocy exposed
But, of course, this is not the key point. The man doesn’t understand the BASICS of the scientific method and continuously mixes up things like “theory”, “law” and “principles”.
This man is a medical doctor! He MUST have cheated in all his exams. He would flunk the most basic 101 course in science. He also has the most shonky memory” for facts – a total clown, as you’ve seen in the second video, above.
The good thing: he is helping destroy Islam from within. Just like VHP and BJP are helping destroy Hinduism, and the Pope is helping destroy Christianity.
We don’t need these religious duffers to tell us about the facts of life.
Go away, fools!

A reader objected to my previous blog post on this topic.
Dear Sanjeev. I read this post. All your posts are interesting and factual but in this one you have slipped. You have not done your homework which you do so assiduously always. Why are so many billions following Islam and the ‘book’ as you derogatorily refer to it? Because it is in it’s very essence the Book of life. It sustains, consoles and soothes. I recite it everyday. I am not fluent at all in my Arabic but when I lay the Book down, I am soothed. I am at one with my creator.
The Daesh are a group of murderers. But you must always remember that they were created. If Saddam Hussain, Gaddafi and Mubarak had been there they would not have had a fly’s chance of rearing their ugly head. But the so called Arab Spring brought out the worms from the woodwork. And how can you blame a religion because these brutal bigots are lying through their very teeth and quoting from the Quran to justify every murderous act? Please write with more responsibility. I love your blogs and have learned from them..but this one is zilch.
I think the vast majority of Muslims are ignorant about Islam. Your situation falls into the same category.
Trust me, there’s nothing in the Quran that makes you feel good. It is your faith and belief that makes you feel good. That’s because of you and because your are intrinsically good (as most people are), not because of the Quran.
The Quran – and associated Islamic documents called the Sunna – is quite a schizophrenic book. I think I’ve provided sufficient background on its exhortations to violence.
The Daesh were created, not doubt, but only by the Quran. Only Mohammed created them, not God (since God has nothing to do with the Quran). Those who take the Quran seriously must necessarily engage in jihad. That a vast number of Muslims don’t take the Quran seriously means that the vast majority remain good, peaceful citizens.
Now, there may be a few who know all this and still claim the Quran is a book of peace. These people are consciously practising deception – which is a directive of the Sunna.
I trust this clarifies. I’m afraid I care only for the truth, so yes, this may appear unpleasant and “zilch” to you, but it is the truth, 100 per cent! I did not cook up the Sunna – the facts speak for themselves.
