Your Daily Muslim #716: Mustafa Baskal

Your Daily Muslim #716: Mustafa Baskal

UK Muslim Mustafa Baskal is a more prolific Tweeter than even the most vociferous of Gamergaters. Baskal, who is of Turkish descent, routinely fires off dozens of Tweets a day, inundating his followers with all sorts of 7th-century nonsense. Recently, UK Channel 4 aired a documentary about Muslim drag queens. Of course, the Muslims featured […]

Your Daily Muslim #691: Ali Rıza Demircan

Turkish Islamic scholar Ali Rıza Demircan, author of Sexual Life According to Islam, caused a firestorm on Twitter after a televised interview went awry. He brought up the increasing divorce rate in many societies and offered a bizarre explanation of it. Demircan claimed that the widespread practice of haram (forbidden) sexual acts between married couples […]

Your Daily Muslim #672: Mücahid Cihad Han

Your Daily Muslim #672: Mücahid Cihad Han

Turkish Islamic da’ee, wannabe scholar and anti-drinking activist Mücahid Cihad Han (sometimes Anglicized as Mujahid Jihad Han) decided to field viewers’ questions on television. This was his first mistake. Err, no, his first mistake was believing in a seventh-century child-porn fairytale. But I digress. A male viewer called in and explained that he masturbated frequently […]

Your Daily Muslim #636: Ibrahim Melih Gökçek

Ankara, Turkey. The city’s mayor, Ibrahim Melih Gökçek, made some offensive comments about abortion during a televised interview. “Women kill their babies born out of adultery. Why do babies die because of these so-called mothers? Let mothers kill themselves.” This led two young women to throw eggs at him, as an act of both overt […]

Your Daily Muslim: Nawal Msaad

Your Daily Muslim: Nawal Msaad

UK Muslimah Nawal Msaad’s panties were in a bunch. Why? Because of the tightly-packed €20,000 believed to be for Syrian mujahideen hidden therein. Funneling money should be easy thanks to PayPal, Bitcoin, etc. Then again, what mujahideen lack in intelligence they make up for in brazenness. I have no idea how Msaad thought she wouldn’t […]

Your Daily Muslim: Hasan Küçük

Your Daily Muslim: Hasan Küçük

Hasan Küçük (probably pronounced “cock”), a Muslim of Turkish descent who was elected to the city council of the Hague, Netherlands, has a rabid (no pun intended) hatred of man’s best friend. Why? Because Muslims hate things that are cute and cuddly. Well, maybe that too, but mainly because the teachings of Islam state that […]

Your Daily Muslim: Dogan Akkaya

Your Daily Muslim: Dogan Akkaya

It has been documented that many Muslims seem to go on minding their own business, then spontaneously explode (no pun intended) into fits of jihadi rage. Canadian Muslim Dogan Akkaya, whose name suggests a Turkish background, experienced one such uncontrollable episode – aboard an airplane, no less. Passengers and airplane crew quickly intervened, but did […]
