Freedom Ain’t Free & Take Our Country Back

VICTORY Is Not Defeat

Proving Islam incompatible with Article 18 of the ICCPR


ICCPR

Article 18

  1. Everyone shall have the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion. This right shall include freedom to have or to adopt a religion or belief of his choice, and freedom, either individually or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief in worship, observance, practice and teaching.
  2. No one shall be subject to coercion which would impair his freedom to have or to adopt a religion or belief of his choice.
  3. Freedom to manifest one’s religion or beliefs may be subject only to such limitations as are prescribed by law and are necessary to protect public safety, order, health, or morals or the fundamental rights and freedoms of others.
  4. The States Parties to the present Covenant undertake to have respect for the liberty of parents and, when applicable, legal guardians to ensure the religious and moral education of their children in conformity with their own convictions.

3:85. And whoever seeks a religion other than Islâm, it will never be accepted of him, and in the Hereafter he will be one of the losers.

Sahih Bukhari Volume 9, Book 84, Number 57:

Narrated ‘Ikrima:

Some Zanadiqa (atheists) were brought to ‘Ali and he burnt them. The news of this event, reached Ibn ‘Abbas who said, “If I had been in his place, I would not have burnt them, as Allah’s Apostle forbade it, saying, ‘Do not punish anybody with Allah’s punishment (fire).’ I would have killed them according to the statement of Allah’s Apostle, ‘Whoever changed his Islamic religion, then kill him.'”

Umdat as-Salik

O8.1

When a person who has reached puberty and is sane voluntarily apostatizes from Islam, he deserves to be killed.

O8.2

In such a case, it is obligatory for the caliph (A: or his representive) to ask him to repent and return to Islam. If he does, it is accepted from him, but if he refuses, he is immediately killed.

Shari’ah clearly reflects the congruent pattern of the Qur’an & hadith.  Where Allah’s writ runs, there is no freedom of religion.  Where Allah’s writ does not run, it eventually will. Take note of  the terminal condition for Jihad against pagans in Al – Anfal 39.

8:39. And fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief and polytheism: i.e. worshipping others besides Allâh) and the religion (worship) will all be for Allâh Alone [in the whole of the world ]. But if they cease (worshipping others besides Allâh), then certainly, Allâh is All-Seer of what they do.

The war ends when all resistance ceases and Allah has a global monopoly of faith & practice. It is obvious that war of religious compulsion and executing apostates violate the provisions of Article 18.

  1. Actually one must read Art. 18.1 ICCPR more throughly. It grants not more than the freedom “to have or to adopt” a believe. Compared with “the freedom to change his religion or belief” Art. 18 UDHR this is a regression:

  2. In my view, “have or to adopt a religion or belief of his choice” implies the right to change. In any case, Islam violates both UDHR & ICCPR.

    My intent, in this series, is to repeatedly drive home the fact that Islam is incompatible with our rights & liberties and in violation of the norms of civilization.
