Islamic Religious Leaders call for Hanging of Atheist Bloggers in Bangladesh

Islamic Religious Leaders call for Hanging of Atheist Bloggers in Bangladesh
http://blogs.aljazeera.com/blog/asia/ban...t-bloggers

Quote:During the rally, a female reporter was attacked by protesters. She told local media outlets she was yelled at for being a woman at the men's protest and scolded her for not covering her hair while they beat her and chased her away. Other media reports said a female rubbish collector was also chased away.

Quote:As the protesters advanced they chanted: "God is great, hang the atheist bloggers!”

"I've come here to fight for Islam. We won't allow any bloggers to blaspheme our religion and our beloved Prophet Mohammed," Shahidul Islam, an imam at a mosque outside Dhaka who walked 20km, told AAP.

A few comments:

Thousands, possibly as many as 200,000, Islamists came out to protest. That's a lot of "extremists"; perhaps these sentiments are mainstream in Bangladesh.

Where are the "moderates" denouncing the calls for the murder of atheists?

Is there another religion where its members call for the wholesale murder of a group? Shoot children in the face for attending school? Throw acid in the face of "immodest" women?

Would constantly "blaspheming" Islam and the prophet eventually help the situation? My opinion is yes, but I haven't thought it out. I think sacred cows need to be slaughtered. Religion protects itself by erecting these free speech barriers. It would seem the best opposition would be to not be cowed into silence.

These towel head fuckers always remind me of this quote.

Quote:An infinite God ought to be able to protect himself, without going in partnership with State Legislatures. Certainly he ought not so to act that laws become necessary to keep him from being laughed at. No one thinks of protecting Shakespeare from ridicule, by the threat of fine and imprisonment.
-- Robert Green Ingersoll

To Ingersoll's list the muslims add murder but, in truth, if given half a chance the xtians would be just as barbaric.

For some reason their god is incapable of protecting himself from ridicule.

Just ran across this:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-22058462

Quote:In a BBC interview, she said existing laws were sufficient to punish anyone who attempted to insult religion.

Her comments came just days after hundreds of thousands of supporters of an umbrella organisation of Islamists held a massive rally in Dhaka.

The marchers called for the death penalty for those guilty of blasphemy.

Ms Hasina said: "They have demanded it. Actually, we don't have any plan to [bring in the law]. We don't need it. They should know that existing laws are enough.

"This country is a secular democracy. So each and every religion has the right to practice their religion freely and fair. But it is not fair to hurt anybody's religious feeling. Always we try to protect every religious sentiment."

So, how do they protect the religious "sentiments" of atheists? Everybody can make up any BS they want and not be criticized for it, and atheists have to remain silent? Part of my "creed" is to expose batshittery anywhere and everywhere I find it.

How do they deal with the fact Islam blasphemes Christianity when they claim Jesus isn't divine? Or Christians blaspheme Islam when saying Mohamed was a false prophet? Curious how they will implement protecting "every religious sentiment".

Might be because Bangladesh is currently cleaning up amongst those islamist assholes.

Alot of them were involved in warcrimes during the Bangladesh war of independence and are currently being put on trial.

Your portrayal of Muslims as one homogenous entity is farcical

Your religion's portrayal of itself is totally ruining itself for everyone.

Who's portrayal and where is the claim Islam is one homogeneous entity?

Be specific.

Ahhh... a religion of peace!
The meek shall inherit the Earth, the rest of us will fly to the stars.

Never underestimate the power of very stupid people in large groups

Arguing with an engineer is like wrestling with a pig in mud ..... after a while you realise that the pig likes it!
