LUCKNOW, MEERUT, FEBRUARY 17: The Minister for Minority Welfare and Haj in the Mulayam Singh Yadav government, Haji Yaqoob Qureishi, has announced a cash reward of Rs 51 crore for anyone who beheads the Danish cartoonist who caricatured Prophet Mohammad.
While the state government has defended the Ministers remark as the voice of someone whose religious sentiments have been hurt, a senior member of the All India Muslim Personal Law Board has slammed it calling the reward anti-Islamic and anti-humanity.
Speaking to The Indian Express, Qureishi defended his announcement saying it was a concerted decision and the killing of a person who blasphemed Islam was justified.
Addressing a gathering at the Faiz-e-Azam College in Meerut after Friday prayers today, Qureishi announced the reward and urged Muslims to show proof of being himayat-e-Islami by joining in the protest.
Taking the cue, several shopkeepers downed shutters with speakers demanding an apology from the Danish government. They also demanded that New Delhi snap diplomatic ties with Denmark.
When contacted, UP Principal Secretary, Home, Alok Sinha told The Indian Express: The ministers reaction was the voice of someone whose religious sentiments have been hurt. Moreover, since the reference was to a person who is far off, there is no question of an FIR being lodged against the minister.
However, the All India Muslim Personal Law Board member and Naib Imam of Aishbagh Idgah, Maulana Khalid Rasheed Firangi Mahali, criticised the Ministers call for the killing of the cartoonist.
The Ministers statement is anti-Shariat, anti-Islam and anti-humanity, Mahali said. The western media is already up against Islam, the ministers statement will only add fuel to the fire. The Prophet believed in pardoning others for sins committed by them, the Maulana said, Who are we to issue such irresponsible statements?
"Not in the least. "Eventually?". Time-frame please?"
I don't know, I'm not a fortune teller. If I had to wildly guess, it would be when the non-European populations of countires like Britain and France and Germany reach 30-40-50 percent. So maybe within the next 100 yrs? I have no idea.
"I seem to delight in the fall of Europe? Hell, no."
That's not what it sounds like by the way you are talking. It seems like you are glad that Europe will fall.
Look dude, do you really think it can happen? How will you deport 50 million Muslims? Airbus A3XX?
Face it. Europe's lost. Some of the politicians of Europe are Muslim, who were voted into power. What will you do about them? And their supporters?
Scandinavian blogger Fjordman predicts that Europe will soon face civil war and the continent will divide into two zones - a muzlim one and a civilized one (separated by an Israelii style barrier, maybe?). Already looking at demographic trends, there are swathes the muzlims seem to have earmarked already in advance. Well, since the EU has been subsizing the PA etc so long, the whole continent now risks becoming an Israel itself....
I'm not glad.
Europe always had a "We're always right" pompous attitude. Some of the major European states haven't missed much of a chance in recent years to become stumbling blocks in America's path. Let's spell just desserts?
"How will you deport 50 million Muslims?"
Umm, ships? sadly, if they cannot be deported, then the only alternative would be to eliminate them using force.
"Face it. Europe's lost. "
Once again you seem overjoyed with this, eager beaver. Europe has not lost, and they will one day wake up. If we (the US) need to help them deal with the muslim infestation then we will.
"Some of the politicians of Europe are Muslim, who were voted into power. What will you do about them? And their supporters?"
Deport them all. A real European cannot be Muslim, except in the mind of liberals.
Not good enough. Reality bites hard. And when Muslim population reaches 50% in Europe, the bets are all off. The Muslims are far more cohesive and united than the rest of the Europeans.
You are paranoid.
Try to get a job with that name!
I agree with Fjordman that there will be a civil war, except I do not believe Europe will be divided. The Muslims will be either deported from Europe or exterminated before the Muslims again gain European territory for their own.
By the way, this Fjordman blog sounds interesting...do you know the URL of his site? Thanks :)
Are you for real? How will Europe handle (by the time it comes to it)100+ million dead bodies?
"Not good enough. Reality bites hard. And when Muslim population reaches 50% in Europe, the bets are all off. The Muslims are far more cohesive and united than the rest of the Europeans."
But you are forgetting one thing..in European countries, the GOVERNMENTS have all the weapons, the civilians have none. If the governments of Europe decided to apply extreme force against the Muslims then all the Muslims can do is throw rocks and bottles. And the Muslims are not more united than the Europeans, just more excitable.
"How will Europe handle (by the time it comes to it)100+ million dead bodies?"
He posts occasionally on Rob Spencer's www.jihadwatch.org which I visit as well.
P.S: Exerminating 50 million people? That exceeds the total tally in WWII. Its easier said than done. That buffoon clintoon bombed the wrong side in the Bosnian war else the world could've seen what a civil war outcome would foretell in Europe.
When the killings start, Russia, China and America will protest. And may even take military action against Europe. Remember Serbia?
Your comments are extremely juvenile.
"Europe always had a "We're always right" pompous attitude."
So basically, you are glad then.
"Some of the major European states haven't missed much of a chance in recent years to become stumbling blocks in America's path."
Since when have YOU cared about stumbling blocks in america's path?
The Europeans are still Christian, and members of NATO, and yes, white, which makes them natural allies of the USA.
Go to Europe. Most of the churches are empty.
"When the killings start, Russia, China and America will protest. And may even take military action against Europe. Remember Serbia? "
By then, Russia will be doing the same thing to the Muslims. America would not care. Most Americans were against Clinton's Nazi genocide against the Serbians.
And China is a joke. They dont have the ability to intervene. What would they do, march their 2 million man army across Central Asia through the Middle East and Turkey through eastern Europe into France and Germany?
Or maybe send the 2 modern ships in their navy (Sovremennyy's) to intervene?
Snort, they dont have the ability. Neither does India, if they should decide to stick up for their fellow 3rd worlders.
Your reasoning is extremely juvenile.
You are sounding very wierd.
"Go to Europe. Most of the churches are empty. "
many, not most, and they still have Christian culture, and will re-discover Christian Faith.
