This is so typical of Islamists - including the so called 'liberal' type.
A little prick and the Muslim apologist bursts in anger. How dare you!
Grudgingly he guards he sensual side of the theology but when you point
out the logical conclusion from it, that is effrontery - an act of a horrid
Reminds me of a very famous book in Urdu which is not only advertised on
the back of other books and magazine, once countless Pakistani brick and
concrete facades were littered with advertisement for the book. The book is
titled: "Maut Ka Manzar Marnay Key Ba'ad Kia Ho Ga", essentially "What it
would be death like after dying." A female cousin of mine read it and then
mentioned it to me. I borrowed it from her to read and then returned it
without delving much into the contents with the exception that it contains
Indeed there is no enormity big enough to describe what is contained in
the Islamic books concerning human sexuality, that too primarily male
dominated. So for some to take offense from this post from Mr. Munir is beyond
reason. Indeed it is hypocritical.
I know the reason.
Muslim apologists are very protective of their religion. Outwardly they
defend the sanitized version of Islam while jealously protecting the
questionable and condemnable side. Munir Sahib touched a nerve, an act which
a Muslim does not expect from a fellow Muslim. No wonder Munir Sahib
obliged and before he is branded a heretic by the pious, he relented
by listing his daily routine before he goes to bed.
The article in question began with a verse from the Quran. The
Muslim apologists should ask themselves - where does this stuff come from.
Maryam in the story picked it up from where? Isn't this in the Quran that men
of the paradise would get virgins? So why are Muslims ashamed of bearing the
consequence of the Quranic 'glad tidings'? If the 'Holy Book' contains
clear references further butteressed by other elements of the Muslim theology,
why pick on this article?
Here is my routine before I go to sleep. I floss and clean my teeth. Read
few pages of a book which is enough to bring on sweet dreams after half
an hour or sooner. My God does not need prayer in Arabic so we talk in our
native language of choice of that night - Urdu, English or Punjabi. I
basically thank Him for all the good things in life. Of course, had I been a
destitute, I would have been complaining. I am no hypocrite like most Muslims
I commend Munir Sahib for posting the article but I do not support his
