Politic or religion. . .
In the western world you have many religions. Inside all these religions you have sects.
~ The Latter day’s Saints
~ The Mormons
~ Jehovah’s Witness
~ The Salvation Army
And more . . .
In Islam you have the same. . .
~ The Sunni Muslim
~ The Shija Muslim
~ The Sufi Muslim
And more . . .
Wherever you are on earth, you have something good and something bad, good people and bad people, honest people and dishonest people, respectable people and disrespectable people, educated people and uneducated people, rich people and poor people. Even in democratic countries.
In the western world, you do not criticize the government for the religious rules of the different sects.
The government does not interfere in the way the Mormons dress or that Jehovah’s Witness knock at your door or that people “talk in tongues” or have sex-orgies or enforce you to pay tithe, they do not even interfere when satanic organizations have human offerings.
Why is it that the western world blame the government of Islamic countries for what is going on in Islamic sects?
Female circumcision, arranged marriages, murder of honor, etc. etc. is not rules from the government. It is religious rules of some sects of Islam, not by Islam itself.
The government tries to explain for the people, the problems coming with the custom of these sects. But even the doctors try to encourage the people to continue, because they need the money they get to destroy (circumcise) the girls.
Arranged marriage is not always a bad idea. I know young women who want their parents to choose a husband for them. Even myself as youth in Norway, I asked my parents for help me to find a suitable husband. They were not allowed to do that, by law. Not even when I wanted help. . . Is the one more correct than the other??
Although, also in Europe you have the antroposophic sect who are 100% into arranged (read forced) marriages. If you don’t accept the partner the sects authority wish you to marry, because you already are married or have a fiancé, they make problems between you and your present partner until it dissolves itself and then you get brainwashed to marry the one they have chosen.
In Scandinavia, almost all people baptize their children, but they never go to church or pray or even believe in God . . . But, they baptize their children because it is a custom.
It is not long ago you could not get a passport without showing your paper of baptizing, or even get marry unless you were baptized. Right after the last W.W. you even had to show you paper of baptizing when you should start school.
It was not even custom, it was by law ! ! !
When people in Islamic countries tell stories from their awful life and what they have gone through or are in danger of going through, it is usually stories from rural villages, secular sects of Islam and the custom of that particular sect . . . It is seldom a governmental law of the country as a whole.
As we also have read about sects in USA where a whole city (Johns-town per example) was forced to commit suicide because of a sect-leader who maybe got tired of being a leader. No-one ever blamed the president of USA for the mass-murder of those people.
Why do you blame the leaders of Islamic countries for what is out of their hand to control?
Although things has changed in the western world when it comes to rules and regulation . . . Don’t you think things are changing in Islamic countries too as they get more medical information, as the country itself get modernized, as TV and international information channels comes through to the people more easy than before???
Here in Egypt, you can dress as you like. With or without hijab, but I have been in the situation that when I asked for job at a place, I was told: “This is a democratic company, so here the employees are not allowed to use hijab.”
That is the glory of democracy ! ! !
One more thing . . . All the time, I meet people from western countries who always claim to know Islam and the Holy Quran better than the Muslim themselves.
I know that everything is not perfect. . . . But it is not perfect any other place neither.
In California they have human zoo, human Museums, where humans who are kidnapped are hold in cages. They have cinemas where they show snuff-films. Meaning that they show sadistic films where the girl/woman get mutilated tortured and killed in front of the viewers eyes, and it is not film-trick . . . it is real. ( One have to be member of a special club or organisation to be allowed to enter these places.)
How can the president accept that these things happen without doing anything?? Why is he not taken in responsibility for these films?
The rule is: “So long as you make it as entertainment, everything is legal.”
No one gets punished, no one have the responsibility, no one care. . .
On the other hand, they can put children all down to 8 years in jail because he accidental stepped on new-lain asphalt and made a foot-print, and even at an age of 4 one can get reported to the police for unaesthetic behavior, because the child gave the teacher a hug.
This would never have happened in a Muslim country.
Every now and then we read about innocent people who have been judge by death-sentence in USA, but since one already have got the punishment, the real criminal goes free. Who take the responsibility for those people who died in vane by lethal injection??? No-one, because it was done in the name of democracy . . .
Please. . . Get a grip . . . Control yourself . . . Clean in front of your own door . . .
Democracy . . . The hidden hell
