BNI reader and friend, Imran Firasat, a Pakistani ex-Muslim who resides in Spain, is a courageous young man who has lodged a formal petition to the Spanish authorities for the banning the Quran by reason that it is an extremely violent set of laws that is totally incompatible with humanity and civilized societies.

The fact that his petition was forwarded to the next level and is in the process of being studied by the constitutional commission of the Spanish parliament, has outraged Muslims around the world and put his life in danger. An article that just appeared on the website of the Muslim Public Affairs Committee UK is now calling for a Political Jihad against Imran and all those who oppose Islam.
The article, entitled Quran to be banned in Spain? glorifies the early conquest of Spain by the Moors (Muslims) as a golden age of learning where libraries, colleges, public baths were established and literature, poetry and architecture flourished, and where Jews, Christians and Muslims were given rights and the freedom to practice their religion. Of course, none of this is true as evidenced by the backwardness of bigotry of most Muslim countries today. What they call the ’great civilisation’ came to an end in 1492, thanks to the Crusades when the Christian forces took back the country.
The MPACUK article says:
Today Muslims in Spain are under attack once again. This time, not by Christians, but strangely by an ex Muslim. Imran Firasat, who describes himself as a Pakistani ex Muslim, residing in Spain, has lodged a formal petition to the Spanish government to ban the Quran.
What is strange about this, is that when a person from another faith decides to leave their religion, they will usually just walk away, some may hate their ex religion, as they may have been attacked or let them down by the people of that faith. But how often do you find that people will leave a religion and set up a website to start a vicious attack against it? When it comes to ex Muslims, it is quite common for them to attack Islam. Go into any Zionist loving web page and you will find a lot of them there, including on Facebook. Yes you read it right, the Zionists and these ex Muslims are united to undermine Islam as a religion and Muslims as a people. Again, we see that this kind of Islamophobia takes its root from Zionism.
Firasat stated on his blog, “Many Muslims sent me the messages calling me stupid and commenting that the Government of Spain is not going to entertain your petition and that they will tear and throw your petition. Well, the good news is that I have received a letter from the Parliament of Spain, in which they informed me that they have admitted my petition and sent to the “Constitutional Commission” of the Parliament.”
Firasat has taken his hate of Islam, his Islamophobia, to the next level and all Muslims did was call him stupid and say that the Government is never going to do anything about it. Because the Muslims failed to get political and take action against Firasat’s absurd claim, the Spanish government has accepted the claim to ban the Quran, for consideration.
The fact that this absurd claim has even been accepted, means that this level of Islamophobia is deemed acceptable by the people in government. Imagine if somebody put in a petition to ban the Torah. It would never happen, for two reasons; one, they would immediately be accused of anti-Semitism and two, the Jewish people, quite rightly would take a stand against it. The Jews have learnt from their history, unfortunately it seems that the Muslims have learnt nothing.
Learn from our history and defend your faith against anybody who attacks it, whilst you are still strong enough to do so.
If you fail to become a political Muslim, then you have failed the religion of Islam, as judging by the rising Islamophobia, one day your rights to practice will be taken away in this country.
Everywhere we turn we see groups of people attacking Islam. It’s not a threat, it’s reality. We need to stand up and defend ourselves and get politically active, before it’s too late. Let’s not weep tomorrow for something that we did not do today.
