What would one say if the Saudi or Afghan governments honoured the martyrs of the September 11 attacks on the United States?Nazir is pretty cheesed off with Labour, but it didn't really bother anyone when he supported the Tories. So the Baron compares Rushdie to people who massacred 3000 workers in 2001. And calls them martyrs.

The clerics tried to gather the attention of the Data Darbar visitors over the issue.....Some passers-by were found asking, “Why are they protesting? Who is Rushdie?” “What do these clerics want?”

If a sane person who has reached puberty voluntarily apostatizes from Islam, he deserves to be punished. In such a case, it is obligatory for the caliph (or his representative) to ask him to repent and return to Islam. If he does, it is accepted from him, but if he refuses, he is immediately killed
Chanting “Destroy Salman Rushdie” and “Destroy Britain”, some 30 members of the Opposition Parti Islam se-Malaysia urged Britain to withdraw the honour or risk the consequences.

"He is condemned to death. Whosoever is in position to kill him, he should do so"Abdul Rashid Ghazi, cleric at the Red Mosque, Islamabad, and vice principal of two madrassahs in the city.
About 20 demonstrators protested at Regents Park mosque in London after prayers yesterday afternoon. Men with their faces covered to avoid identification waved placards, one of which read "God curse the Queen", and shouted slogans. Guardian, 23 June.
"We've come to demonstrate against the apostate Salman Rushdie," said one. "He has insulted Islam and the Prophet Muhammad. Salman Rushdie is the devil. We have a responsibility - he should be punished, he should be attacked. We should not be afraid of the kuffar (non-believer).
If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned." (John 15:6)
Jesus tells true believers how to kindle a fire. And lo, men gathered the unbelievers and cast them into the fire. This verse dictated the Inquisition's terrible method of execution just as the 'smite their necks' suras continue to dictate the favoured method of jihadis.
thou shalt surely kill him; thine hand shall be first upon him to put him to death, and afterwards the hand of all the people. And thou shalt stone him with stones, that he die; because he hath sought to thrust thee away from the Lord thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage.
Sahih Bukhari, Volume 9, Book 84: Dealing with Apostates
57: Some Zanadiqa (atheists) were brought to 'Ali and he burnt them. The news of this event, reached Ibn 'Abbas who said, "If I had been in his place, I would not have burnt them, as Allah's Apostle forbade it, saying, 'Do not punish anybody with Allah's punishment (fire).' I would have killed them according to the statement of Allah's Apostle, 'Whoever changed his Islamic religion, then kill him.'"
It is now apparent that his abuse of a quarter of the world’s population and the subsequent deaths of scores of protestors is not only being supported but indeed honoured. This is a testimony of the current legitimization of abuse and attack against the Muslim community.The UK's highly unrepresentative neo-Khomeinist, neo-clerical-fascist Islamic 'Human' Rights Commission equates Salman Rushdie's novel with an attack on a quarter of the world's population. The 'scores of deaths' include the killing of 40 people at the Madimak hotel in Sivas, Turkey, by a gang of Islamists baying for the blood of Alevi "infidels" as well as that of Satanic Verses translator Aziz Nesin. Rushdie's fault, of course.
BBC News gives favourable publicity to the Worker Communist Party of Iran's fraudulent front organisation, the so-called Council of Ex-Muslims, as does the Washington Post and the Daily Telegraph. See also A.C. Grayling's ridiculous remarks at Comment is Free.
This from Islamophobia-watch. Favourable publicity presumably insofar as the BBC did not call for the apostates to be killed. Any association with the Muslim left rather than the Muslim right is self-evidently outrageous. Of course, the fact that the Islamophobia watch is a front for an ex-WRP member does not make it fraudulent: it's the content, stupid.

“The British and the supporters of the anti-Islam Salman Rushdie could rest assured that the writer’s nightmare will not end until the moment of his death and we will bestow kisses on the hands of whomsoever is able to execute this apostate.”Forouz Rajaefar, general secretary of The Organisation to Commemorate the Martyrs of the Muslim World.
