Hyderabad beheading threat

The Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (MIM), whose legislators and cadre attacked Taslima Nasreen here, on Friday threatened to behead the Bangladeshi author, if she ever set foot in the city again.

MIM leader in the Andhra Pradesh Assembly Akbaruddin Owaisi said that anyone who committed blasphemy deserved to be beheaded. “Muslims are proud of what our legislators and workers have done, because we can never tolerate any insult to Prophet Mohammed,” Akbaruddin, whose party has five legislators in the 294-member Assembly, told reporters.

“If she comes to the city again, we will kill her”, added Muqtada Afsar Khan, one of the three MIM legislators who attacked the writer at a book release function in the press club.

That's alright then...

There have been no killings of apostates in Edinburgh to date. Clearly, if this was something they were promoting, they're not very good at it

Muslim Association of Britain spokesperson Osama Saeed's amusing comment on report that Saudi pamphlet advocating the killing of apostates was found in Edinburgh mosque. Funnily enough, MAB's own Inspire publication once asserted, in an article on “Islam and Human Rights” that apostasy from Islam is either “a religious offence punishable by death” or “an act of mutiny or treason, that is punishable” as such.

oil money encourages killing of ex-Muslims

The scholars have mentioned that a person may become apostate for many reasons which can nullify his faith. These reasons would make someone's blood permissible to spill [to be killed for apostasy] and his wealth permissible to be usurped, because he is no longer a Muslim.
"Correct Beliefs and What Opposes Them" - a pamphlet published by the Saudi Ministry for Islamic Affairs and donated in large numbers to British mosques by King Fahd for free distribution.

Killing apostates is a legitimate "anti-Western" view - Bunglawala

Community rallies round apostate

One convert interviewed for the programme told how his local Muslim community in Bradford closed ranks against him after he switched to Christianity. 'They told me categorically had I been in an Islamic country - Pakistan, Middle East - that they would actually be the first to chop off my head,' he said.

"Ayaan Hirsi Ali will not escape her punishment: death"

"If Hirsi Ali is murdered by a woman that will have a much bigger impact"
Fatima, Naima and Khadisja, interviewed in "De Volkskrant". Naima "stelt dat de zusters geduld hebben. 'Al moet het tien jaar duren.'" - the sisters are patient: "even if it will take ten years". Even if Hirsi Ali gives up and disappears, it's still "too late" for her: "she will not escape her punishment: death".

Death penalty for apostates passes unopposed in Pakistan

7.Punishment for apostasy:- (1) If a male person makes the commission of apostasy offence, he shall be awarded death sentence.

An Apostasy Act has been sent by Pakistan's National Assembly to a Standing Committee for approval. Proposed by Muttahida Majlis-e-Amal (the MMA is a coalition of Islamist groups, including the Jamaat-e-Islami, whose representatives serve on the Muslim Council of Britain via the Islamic Mission and the Islamic Foundation). The Apostasy Act 2006 proposes the death penalty for apostates, who may be offered up to the gallows by observant Muslims: "The saying of the Holy Prophet (S.A.W.) is that he who leaves Islam and converts into another must be killed." See full text of
Apostasy Act 2006.

Pakistan's penal code already imposes the death penalty for defiling "the sacred name of the holy Prophet Mohammed" - ordinary christians and muslims have already been murdered by the state for petty thought crimes.

Burn apostate 'scum'

This lady is scum, she is appeasing the west, by making false accusations against Islam. ...She says that the Quran is not the literal word of Allah, and claims other muslims also think this, well even to have doubt in this is KUFR (Disbelief) ...
She is just that fuel for the fire, charcoal for a barbeque, like a matchstick to a cigarette, like petrol for a car. Nothing more!!!!
