“Shameless apologia,” journalist Kunwar Khuldune Shahid questioned the liberal Muslim apologists and Western leftists for describing liberal voices as “Islamophobia.”
Will the Daily Beast, the NY Times, NBC, CBS et al listen to these Pakistani writers? New Yorkers throwing themselves out of the WTC from 100 stories high didn’t convince them. The 9/11 jihadists’s last letters citing allah 90 times had no impact. The Fort Hood jihadi wearing the garb of the shaheed and giving out qurans the morning of his jihad was ignored. The Boston jihad bombers bloody scribblings to Allah were dismissed. The hundreds of jihad plots thwarted here in the US alone didn’t move them. And hundreds of thousands of non-Muslim and secular Muslim victims of sharia and Islamic oppression just don’t exist, according to the enemedia and the Obama administration.
The cries of these victims, or as the media would call these brave Pakistani truth tellers, “islamophobes,” won’t get in the way of their feel-good banter at tonight’s glittery cocktail party at some elite’s penthouse in Tribeca.
“Pakistani Columnists On Boko Haram’s Abduction Of Girls: ‘There Is A Mini Boko Haram… In Every Neighborhood In Muslim Societies’; ‘Muslim Countries Burn Themselves With Rage Owing To Cartoons But There Is A Complete Lack Of Outrage For Heinous Acts Like These,” MEMRI
Several Pakistani writers have recently questioned liberal “apologists” for failing to understand the links between Islamic sharia and incidents such as the abduction of more than 200 teenage girls from a school by Nigerian jihadi group Boko Haram or the Pakistani Taliban’s 2012 attack on liberal youth icon Malala Yousafzai and the sharia justification given for it.
In an article titled “There is a mini Boko Haram thriving in every Muslim society,” columnist Murtaza Haider warned that such situations are inherent in Muslim societies and can be seen in the way girls are raised. The article was published by liberal daily Dawn.
In another article titled “Shameless apologia,” journalist Kunwar Khuldune Shahid questioned the liberal Muslim apologists and Western leftists for describing liberal voices as “Islamophobia.” In the article, published by Lahore-based liberal weekly The Friday Times, Shahid also stated: “Saying that Islamists are using the ‘wrong’ Islam uses the same logic that Islamists use to claim that the progressives are using the ‘wrong’ Islam. Playing ‘true and false’, while thousands continue to be under the Islamist gun is a very dangerous game to play.”
Following are excerpts from Murtaza Haider and Kunwar Khuldune Shahid’s articles:
Murtaza Haider: “Boko Haram Has Taken Forced Conversions To Another Level; They Have Kidnapped Young Women, Held Them Hostage, Threatened To Kill Them, And Offered Conversion And Forced Marriage To Boko Haram Fighters”
“We know them as Al-Qaeda, Boko Haram and the Taliban. Their branding may differ, but their misogynist ideologies do not. These so-called Islamists have promoted discrimination against women for centuries. Now, they abduct young women and threaten to kill them. Permitting these militants to pursue their misguided agendas will destroy whatever goodwill is left for Muslims.
“Last month, the Nigeria-based Islamic militants, Boko Haram (Jama’atu Ahlis Sunna Lidda’awati wal-Jihad), raided a school in Chibok, a small town in the north-eastern Borno state, and kidnapped more than 200 teen-aged girls. A recently released video by Boko Haram shows the abducted Christian girls clad in abayas. Abubakar Shekau, the leader of Boko Haram, claims that the girls, while being in captivity, have embraced Islam.
“Boko Haram has taken forced conversions to another level. They have kidnapped young women, held them hostage, threatened to kill them, and offered conversion and forced marriage to Boko Haram fighters as the only way out. Muslim societies across the globe have been notorious for the poor welfare of women, especially the girl child. In several Muslim countries, determinants of physical and social well-being are much worse for girls than they are for boys.
“Despite the glaring discrimination, Muslim apologists argue that this has nothing to do with Islam or Muslims. They hastily blame the ‘enemies of Islam’ for propagating lies about Muslims. Scapegoating, however, will serve no purpose. Boko Haram and its ilk hurt all Muslims, but more so young women. Muslims must confront those who harm women in the name of Islam. Boko Haram may seem like a remote African tribe that abducts girls, threatens to kill them, and marries them off against their will. Some introspection should reveal that the same tendencies are alive and instrumental in all Muslim societies.
“Muslim fathers in the West have abducted their daughters and transported them back home to prevent their daughters from marrying for love. In the name of honor, Muslim fathers and brothers are known to have killed their daughters and sisters who married against family’s wishes. In almost every neighborhood in Muslim societies, one will find women who were forcibly married to men chosen by their parents. There is a mini Boko Haram alive and thriving in every neighborhood in Muslim societies.”
