Dhimmitude taking over the world

Just a couple of days before Mumbai was attacked by rampaging jihadis, a consortium of 57 Islamic states were successful in lobbying the UN to pass a measure on "Combating Defamation of Religions". It was passed with a 85-50 vote with 42 abstentions. Check the link to see how various countries voted. And what was the motive?

Passage of the resolution is part of a 10-year action plan
the 57-state Organization of the Islamic Conference launched in 2005 to ensure
"renaissance" of the "Muslim Ummah" or community
. [

It is not Islam specific or binding at the moment, but is part of a greater plan as seen in the above comment and below -

[...] religious tolerance advocates warn
the resolutions are being accumulated for a more sinister goal.

[...] Pakistan's Ambassador Masood Khan
reminded the UN's Human Rights Council this year that the OIC ultimately seeks a "new instrument or convention" on the issue. Such a measure
would impose its terms on signatory states. [

The dhimmis in the UN fail to realise that this is another attempt at curbing free speech and will have serious ramifications. Individuals already enjoy protection under human rights. That ought to be enough, granting protection to religion is a validation of its "truth". We have already seen how Islamists, every other day, invoke the "hurt to our religious sentiment" argument against even an objective observation of Islam. This UN resolution gives the intolerant Islamists even more fodder. The doors even for peaceful speech, expression, forget any criticism, will now be firmly shut. Any critical look, indeed even an attempt at such, will now be denounced as "demonizing" Islam. It is this inward looking tendency and nonacceptance of any questions on Islam or any aspect of it that has led to the extreme intolerance amongst Islamists. Besides, it is highly hypocritical of the Islamists and their apologists to scoff at non-Muslims as "infidels" while not being open to any criticism of Islam.

Apologists fail to, rather do not want to see the direction in which "Muslim brotherhood" is headed. The same charade continues, Islam is peaceful, radicals are misguided while it is the Islamic religious leaders and holy teachings themselves that are a source of inspiration to the various extremist organisations terrorizing the world.

And assault on free speech is already on. Geert Wilders (also see earlier post), the Dutch politician who speaks out against Islam is already facing consequences. For making a movie on Radical Islam, Fitna (see it here), and attempting to raise awareness about the serious consequences, Wilders is paying a price. Rather than face the truth and realise the dangers facing the European region today, this is what the Dutch courts do -

On 21 January 2009 the Court of Appeal in Amsterdam ordered
the criminal prosecution of the member of parliament Geert Wilders for the
incitement to hatred and discrimination based on his statements in various media
about moslims and their belief. In addition, the Court of Appeal considers
criminal prosecution obvious for the insult of Islamic worshippers because of
the comparisons made by Wilders of the islam with the nazism. [
So much for making the world face the reality! It is Islamic leaders and the Mullahs that propagate hostility towards "infidels" and Wilders gets the rap for spreading hatred! He is currently fighting the legal battle and will need support. If you can, kindly donate on his website.

Wilders was scheduled to screen his movie at the House of Lords in Britain this week. But when dhimmitude has permeated to such a level that it is now begging jihadis not to attack the UK, Wilders never had a chance of making it there. He is being held in detention at Heathrow and will be deported back.

And India has a long history of dhimmitude itself. Time and again our institutions, laws, people have had to bend over backwards in deference to the "true of faith" and "religion of peace". Shariah must be upheld, no matter how unjust it may be. Law of the land be damned!

It is no coincidence that the Ummah lobbied the UN to curb free speech. It is now a handy, effective and legitimate tool to pull down every criticism. It will also give cover to the "misguided youth". Rather than guide the "misguided", it is the "infidels" that get chastised for holding mirror to the Islamists. Political correctness is a trap that will sink us "infidels" pretty soon. India must think again about being in the UN.

I love dosas too. Adding your blog to my blogroll. Nice work. Its good to see so many young Indians expressing their patriotic feelings without the Barkha Dutt's able to come down on us. The media's life is short-lived. They feed us lies, and we turn them off and get our info elsewhere.

Thanks Nam. Objectivity is all lost on the torchbearers of "secularism". So it is left to us bloggers to hold a mirror to them.
