UK Muslim Taji Mustafa is at it again, this time talking about how Allah is always watching (what a perv) and voicing his support for getting choppy with people’s limbs. An outspoken hater of freedom, Mustafa would rather all people live in fear of being dismembered than give people the liberty to make their own decisions. “Here in the west, what do you find, what actually takes place? Instead of God-consciousness (taqwa), it’s this idea of ‘you’re free, you can do what you want, how you want, but by the way, there are some rules.'” Mustafa claims that the lack of taqwa in western society causes crime, because somehow paranoid delusions of a murderous dude in the sky named Allah will cause people not to be dicks to each other.
Mustafa criticizes cultural influences like rapper 50 Cent, who hasn’t been relevant for almost a decade, as being contributing factors to crime. While shitty rap music often does have sexist and violent lyrics, it pales in comparison to the grisly writings in the Qur’an. Let’s have a look, shall we?
Qur’an (5:33) “The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His messenger and strive to make mischief in the land is only this, that they should be murdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut off on opposite sides…”
Qur’an (8:12) “…I will instill terror into the hearts of the unbelievers: smite ye above their necks and smite all their fingertips off them.”
Sahih Muslim (16:4131) “They were caught and brought to him (the Holy Prophet). He commanded about them, and (thus) their hands and feet were cut off and their eyes were gouged and then they were thrown in the sun, until they died.”
Qur’an (5:38-39) “The male thief, and the female thief, you shall mark, cut, or cut-off their hands/means as a recompense for what they earned, and to serve as a deterrent from God. God is Noble, Wise…”
Speaking of cutting off hands, what’s Mustafa’s stance on that? “[Absolutely… criminals] are taken out publicly and their hand is cut off. And when people walking around see this public punishment, they think, wow, I don’t want to [commit crime]. That sends a message in society! It’s a huge deterrent!” Mustafa’s logic simply doesn’t make sense. Plenty of countries, both Islamic and infidel, have the death penalty, yet crime is still rampant. Deterrence through barbarism isn’t effective. I’m guessing Mustafa, like many other Muslims, has a gore fetish: he sounds gleeful discussing the severing of limbs. “We should make no apologies about Islamic punishments being harsh.”
“We ask Allah to aid us in emulating the prophet Muhammad (pigs be upon him.)” It’s almost as if Muslims are oblivious to the fact that Muhammad had sex with a 9-year-old girl… or maybe they’re just asking Allah for permission to do the same.
