Pakistan Islamics vow suicide attacks on England because of Rushdie

First it was the cartoons, then it was something else, now its the knighthood of Rushdie, yet again Islam (The religion of peace) pressures the west to bow before its rules or it will cause violence.

The award of a knighthood to the author Salman Rushdie justifies suicide attacks, a Pakistani government minister said today.

... Quote:
This is an occasion for the 1.5 billion Muslims to look at the seriousness of this decision. The west is accusing Muslims of extremism and terrorism. If someone exploded a bomb on his body he would be right to do so unless the British government apologises and withdraws the 'sir' title.

Mohammed Ijaz ul-Haq, religious affairs minister, told the Pakistani parliament in Islamabad.

The comments follow other condemnation of the award for Rushdie, whose novel The Satanic Verses provoked worldwide protests over allegations that it insulted Islam.

He received the knighthood for services to literature in the Queen's birthday honours list published on Saturday.

Earlier today Pakistani MPs demanded Britain withdraw Rushdie's knighthood.

A government-backed resolution condemning the author's knighthood was passed unanimously by the lower house of the Pakistani parliament amid angry protests across the country.

MPs said the honour was an insult to the religious sentiments of Muslims. In the eastern city of Multan, hardline Muslim students burned effigies of the Queen and Rushdie, chanting "Kill him! Kill him!"

Pakistan's minister for parliamentary affairs, Sher Afgan Khan Niazi, who proposed the resolution condemning the honour, branded Rushdie a "blasphemer".

She told MPs:
... Quote:
The 'sir' title from Britain for blasphemer Salman Rushdie has hurt the sentiments of the Muslims across the world. Every religion should be respected. I demand the British government immediately withdraw the title as it is creating religious hatred.

Also today, Muhammad Abdul Bari, secretary-general of the Muslim Council of Britain, said many Muslims would regard the knighthood as the final insult from Tony Blair before he leaves office next week.

Dr Bari said...

... Quote:
Salman Rushdie earned notoriety amongst Muslims for the highly insulting and blasphemous manner in which he portrayed early Islamic figures.

The granting of a knighthood to him can only do harm to the image of our country in the eyes of hundreds of millions of Muslims across the world. Many will interpret the knighthood as a final contemptuous parting gift from Tony Blair to the Muslim world.

Yesterday, Iranian politicians accused Britain of insulting Islam by awarding the knighthood to Rushdie, who was forced into hiding for a decade after the country's late spiritual leader, Ayatollah Khomeini, issued a fatwa calling for his assassination.

Mohammad Ali Hosseini, a spokesman for Iran's foreign ministry, said the decision to honour the novelist was an orchestrated act of aggression directed against Islamic societies.

He said Rushdie was "one of the most hated figures" in the Islamic world.

"Honouring and commending an apostate and hated figure will definitely put the British officials [in a position] of confrontation with Islamic societies," Mr Hosseini said.

... Quote:
This act shows that insulting Islamic sacred [values] is not accidental. It is planned, organised, guided and supported by some western countries.

Giving a badge to one of the most hated figures in Islamic society is ... an obvious example of fighting against Islam by high-ranking British officials.

Islamists protest Rushdies knighthood

Muslims protest outside Regents Park Mosque in central London against the knighthood of Salman Rushdie. Friday June 22, 2007.


Interesting the juxtaposition between the placard on the left and the one on the right. The left one seems to speak about the one on the right...

Interesting thing is they have no inhibitions when it comes to offenses against Judaism or Christianity. Their religious writings even mock the notion of the virginity of Mary and claims the rocks and trees will call to the Muslim to come and kill the Jew hiding behind them.

It wasn't Jews or Christians who have desecrated religious sites in Judea and Samaria (West Bank).
Long before the cartoon incident of last year the Muslims have had a high ol' time drawing hideous charicatures of the Jew.

These silly and hypocritical people have absolutely no room to talk, unless you keep in mind that their belief affrods no room for respecting other people's beliefs.

This is the foolishness of organized religion. The man becomes small and the religion bigger.

Just look at the picture of the protesters, they have absolutely no doubt that they are in the right, blinded by their faith. I beleive that they all collectively suffer from a raging inferiority complex; to beleive that a supernatural entity would be "offended" by a title bestowed by one mortal to another in appreciation of some pedantic disposition. Does it even matter!?
