There exists no such thing as “Islamophobia”, while Islam is an ideology and FULLY open to criticism.
If Muslims face any discrimination in Western countries for being Muslims, then it should be called "Muslimophobia", but not Islamophobia. All Muslims, who live in Western countries, and who believe in Secularism and are ready to integrate into Western society, then they have EQUAL Human Rights. It is wrong if they are still discriminated against for being only Muslims.
While 'Islamophobia' is nothing more than a smartly crafted propaganda word that shields Islam (which is an ideology) from legitimate criticism by painting that criticism as hatred or prejudice towards Muslims.

These Quranic teachings are nothing else than Hate Speech against non-Muslims, who don't accept Muhammad's message and prophethood.
Islamic apologists come up with an excuse:
All religious books have such hate speeches against others. Therefore, criticizing Quran for hate speech is only Islamophobia.
But the truth is:
- The followers of other religions cannot be compared with Muslims.
- They have vastly reformed themselves, they have adopted Secularist teachings, and they no longer believe or act upon those hate speeches in their religious books. Their books and their religion are openly criticized, and nobody calls it Bibleophobia or Vedophobia etc. Muslims are unique and the only ones who blame others for Islamophobia for criticizing hate speech in their religious books.
- However Islamic scholars failed in reforming Islam. They went in the opposite direction, and they literally believe in this hate speech against Kafirs by the Quran.
This becomes automatically evident when we see the practical situation on the ground.
How can Muslim apologists compare the effects & harms of Quranic Kafirophobia with any other religious book, when:
|Muslim States||Non-Muslim (so-called Kafir) States|
Note: Some Muslim apologists claim that Islam indeed allows non-Muslims to criticize it. But this is not true, and only a deception. The teachings of Quranic Kafirophobia have resulted in practically any criticism of Islam automatically becoming impossible. They simply give it the name of Blasphemy (or Disturbance of Harmony in the society etc.) and immediately imprison anyone who dares to criticize Islam. Thus, practically you cannot find any Books or material in Islamic countries which criticizes Islam.
When a Muslim faces discrimination in jobs in Western countries, then we hear all over about Islamophobia.
But in Islamic States, Islamic preachers are totally free to preach Quranic Hate Speech against Kafirs in mosques and in public, like:
- Don't take Kafirs as friends
- And don't wish them their festivals or socialize with them. It is a form of social boycott.
- And all Kafirs are one nation (الكفر كله ملة واحدة) while all Muslims are another nation
For example, look how this Saudi Grand Mufti is openly propagating hate speech against non-Muslims through Quranic verses (link):
Undoubtedly the Muslim should hate the enemies of Allaah and disavow them, because this is the way of the Messengers and their followers. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):
“Indeed, there has been an excellent example for you in Ibraaheem (Abraham) and those with him, when they said to their people: Verily, we are free from you and whatever you worship besides Allaah, we have rejected you, and there has started between us and you, hostility and hatred for ever until you believe in Allaah Alone” [al-Quran, Surah al-Mumtahanah 60:4]
“You (O Muhammad) will not find any people who believe in Allaah and the Last Day, making friendship with those who oppose Allaah and His Messenger (Muhammad), even though they were their fathers or their sons or their brothers or their kindred (people). For such He has written Faith in their hearts, and strengthened them with Rooh (proofs, light and true guidance) from Himself” [al-Quran Surah al-Mujaadilah 58:22]
Based on this, it is not permissible for the Muslim to feel any love in his heart (for them).
The open preaching of this Quranic Kafirophobia results in extreme hatred against Kafirs on the Public and Society levels, where Muslim fanatics (on the individual level) kill thousands of Christians, Hindus, Sikhs, Ahmadis and Shias alone in Pakistan (link).
The injustices and bloodshed due to Quranic Kafirophobia are many times more than any Muslimophobia in Western countries, but still, we only hear about Islamophobia in the media, but nothing against this Quranic Kafirophobia.
If a Hijabi Muslim woman is harassed due to her Hijab in Western countries, then again, we hear about Islamophobia.
But what about thousands of non-Muslim girls, who are abducted and forcefully married to Muslim men, and forced to convert to Islam?
In 2016 Sindh with Pakistan's largest Hindu minority passed a bill that outlawed forced conversions. However, the bill was never ratified by the Governor. The bill was tabled by a faction of the Pakistan Muslim League which in Sindh is led by Sufi leader Pir Pagara, called PML-F, Pakistan Muslim League functional. In 2014, NGOs estimated that around 1000 girls from minority groups every year are being forcibly converted to Islam.
Again, we hear only Western societies being accused of Islamophobia, but we hear nothing about Kafirophobia in Islamic societies.
Normally the perception is that Ahmadi Muslims are the most oppressed minority in the Islamic world. But this perception is wrong. The most oppressed minority in the Islamic world is ex-Muslims by a huge margin.
On State Level:
Ex-Muslims are not even allowed to declare themselves as non-Muslims. They don't have the right to exist in Islamic states. They will be hanged till death. They are imprisoned. They lose the right to inheritance. They lose their children and spouses. The Quranic disease of Kafirophobia is at its PEAK in the case of ex-Muslims.
Ahmadis at least have the right to stay alive. They are not being hanged for being Ahmadis. Their inheritance and family are not snatched away from them.
Unfortunately, the world has still not realized the huge sufferings of ex-Muslims.
On Public Level:
On a public level, it is impossible for ex-Muslims to openly express their lack of belief without facing severe consequences. Muslim public has been brainwashed to the point where they would lynch and kill ex-Muslims in public. As a result, ex-Muslims are forced to lead a double life, pretending to practice Islam outwardly while secretly questioning or rejecting its teachings. They have to perform the five daily prayers, observe the Ramadhan fast, attend Friday prayers, and study Islamic texts in school, college, and university, even though they may not believe in them. This duplicity can be mentally draining.
Ex-Muslim women face particularly harsh challenges. They must wear the hijab throughout their lives, whether they want to or not. They are often coerced into marrying Muslim men against their will and are expected to serve their husbands for the rest of their lives. They cannot reveal their true beliefs to their children, who may accidentally disclose their mothers' apostasy to others. To avoid social repercussions, ex-Muslim women must raise their children as Muslims, further perpetuating the cycle of secrecy and deception. The psychological strain of living such a life can become unbearable, leading some individuals to resort to suicide as a means of escape.
Why all this suffering? The answer is: Only due to the disease of Quranic Kafirophobia.
Please go to the Ex-Muslim Subreddit and read the stories of thousands of ex-Muslims, who are forced to live this double life in their Islamic countries.
Despite all this oppression, we never hear any word against this Quranic Kafirophobia, but we hear only and only Islamophobia while some Western cities don't allow minarets of mosques on a building.
The Disease of Kafirophobia is making Western Society POLARIZED, which is making the Integration of Muslims impossible
Muslims didn't face any persecution in the West in the past, and they were provided with equal human rights. That is why millions of Muslims immigrated on their own to Western countries.
Unfortunately, the Quranic teachings of Kafirophobia make it difficult for Muslims (especially religious Muslims) to integrate into the local community.:
- The Quran ask them to consider the local community to be impure Kafirs.
- The Quran ask them to openly hate the SECULAR Liberal Laws of the local countries and openly call for the imposition of the Sharia Laws by force.
- The Quran ask them not to join them in any of their celebrations and festivals.
- The Quran ask them not to marry them.
All these Quranic teachings of Kafirophobia are making Western society extremely POLARIZED, where different groups hate each other and are not ready to mix and integrate.
The Disease of Kafirophobia is giving birth to the Disease of "Political Islam", which aims to destroy the Secular System and impose the Sharia System
The Quranic teachings of Kafirophobia are directly giving birth to the disease of "Political Islam".
Political Islam aims to destroy and end Secular laws and replace them with Sharia laws. For example:
- Secular laws allow to criticize Islam and even to insult it as the Quran criticizes and insults non-Muslims (i.e. Kafirs), but Political Islam wants to end any criticism/insult of Islam but keeps on spreading one-sided criticism and insult of non-Muslims as the Quran does. Even if it fails to make it a punishable crime, still it opposes this Seclar law on the community and political level.
- Secular laws allow people of different faiths to marry each other. But Political Islam wants to change it and prohibits Muslim girls from marrying any non-Muslims. Even if it fails to make it a punishable crime by law, still it opposes it on the community and political level.
- Secular laws allow people to change their religion, but Political Islam wants to criminalize if a Muslim individual leaves Islam and changes his religion. It is opposed to it on the community and political level.
In short, political Islam is in direct clash with the secular system and laws. It aims to break the secular system and replace it with the Sharia system.
Of course, as a minority, they are not able to achieve these goals. They still dream about it and find ways to implement it through different means, like increasing their population through increased birthrate.
Many Muslims do not even hide these malicious intentions anymore against the secular system and they openly express their intention of imposing the Sharia system.
Thus, Political Islam forces local non-Muslim communities to react, and they feel endangered by this political Islam movement, which aims to make them a minority and impose Sharia laws upon them.
Islamic Preachers come up with the following argument, to defend the Quranic teachings of non-integration:
Secularism is against collectivism and based upon ‘individualism’ and talks about the rights and liberties of an individual person. It’s moral stance is that an individual person is allowed to do whatever he wishes to do, and let others do whatever they want to do. Therefore, when the Western people demands the ‘social integration’ from Muslim, who are living in the West, they are themselves contradicting the basics of the Liberalism/Secularism
These Islamic Preachers are suffering from the huge disease of misunderstanding Secularism.
Yes, of course, Secularism gives the liberty of 'personal choice' to a person on an "individual" level. For example, if an individual Muslim does not participate in the Christmas celebrations according to his ‘personal choice’, then there is no problem with it.
But the criticism is not upon the ‘personal choice’ of an individual Muslim, but the criticism here is upon the ‘Collective behaviour' of the ‘Muslim Community’, where their religion Islam has ordered them ‘collectively’ to neither marry Kafirs, nor they are allowed to celebrate their festivals, nor to integrate in their society in any way. This is against the spirit of Secularism.
Islam has thus killed this very basic ‘personal choice’ of a person on the individual level by giving these collective orders.
Thus, these teachings of Islam about the collective opposition to integration into Western society is a ‘Hate Speech’ against others, and it is against the principles of Secularism.
There is a direct clash between Secular Human Values and the teachings of Islam.
All other communities (Jews, Christians, Hindus, atheist Chinese etc.) are integrating into the local Western societies without any problems. It is due to the reason that they have accepted that Secular Values stand above all religions (while they stand for humanity, and humanity is above all religions).
If the Muslim community does not learn to give preference to the Human Secular Values above the hate teachings of the Quranic Kafirophobia, then they will never be able to integrate, even if they keep on living there for the next thousands of years.
The Lesson is simple, HUMANITY stands above all religions.
Muslims didn't face any persecution in the West in the past, and they were provided with equal human rights. That is why millions of Muslims migrated to Western countries.
Only after the rise of 'Political Islam' in the West, did the hatred against them increase. And now Islamic preachers call this opposition to political Islam by local societies to be Islamophobia. But indeed, it is the Qruanic Kafirophobia, which is the 'aggressor', while it was the first who started this cycle of hatred.
The issue is, when Muslims say they have the right to preach their religion in Western countries, but deny non-Muslims to preach their ideologies in Muslim countries and if anyone dares to criticize Islam, then kill him in the name of Blasphemy in the Muslim countries, then automatically these Double Standards will bring hatred against the Muslim community.. ... Thus, the most important question is who is responsible for this hatred against Muslims?
And the answer is Muslims themselves, their double standards, and their persecution of non-Muslims. And till the time this Quranic Kafirophobia is not going to end, till that time it is impossible to end this Muslimophobia.
Muslims only protest in the name of Islamophobia (which is actually Muslimophobia), but they have never acknowledged the real ROOT of the problem, which is not Islamophobia, but Quranic Kafirophobia.
This so-called Muslimophobia is not going to go away till Muslims don't get rid of their disease of Kafirophobia.
At present, Muslims are 100% concentrated upon Muslimophobia, but they have 0% concentration upon their own disease of Kafirophobia, and thus not in a position to reform themselves.
Moreover, one ex-Muslim said: "Just like you can’t call a Jew Naziphobic, you can’t call an ex-Muslim Islamophobic"
If Muslims don't recognise the disease of the Quranic Kafirophobia, and just keep on crying for Islamophobia, then it is not going to reduce the hatred against Muslims. By denying the disease of Kafirophobia and not REFORMING yourself and not considering non-Muslims as equal humans with equal rights, you are only going to stab in the back of the humanity-loving left-wing forces in Western countries. It will result only in the weakening of left-wing forces and the strengthening of right-wing forces, which will ultimately only result in increased hatred against Muslims.
If you really want to reduce the hatred against Muslims and make it safer for Muslims, then you have to recognise the real cause and reform yourself first.
An Islamic preacher came up with this excuse:
This was a rather uninformed and idiotic thing to write when most educated people know that the term "islamophobia" was first coined by Alain Quellien, a non-Muslim Frenchman, writing in 1910 to describe a "a prejudice against Islam that is widespread among the peoples of Western and Christian civilization". It is, therefore, a term invented by a non-Muslim westerner.
Even if we assume that this term was first used by a Westerner, but Westerners are not gods that their all works should be considered free of every mistake and should not be criticized.
It has been proven above that the term Islamophobia is wrong, and even if there exists any hatred against Muslims, then it should be called "Muslimophobia". And it has also been proved that Muslims are using it as a tactic to put a ban on all types of criticism against Islam by calling it Islamophobia.
Islamic Preacher: Muslims hate the West while they invaded and killed thousands in Iraq and Afghanistan
Wars are unfortunate, but they are not the reason for the hate among Muslims against the West. But the real reasons are:
- Quranic Kafirophobia
- And the wish among Muslim masses to IMPOSE Sharia all over the non-Muslim world by force.
When Muslims were stronger, they waged much more wars and brought much more destruction against their opponents.
Muhammad killed many men of opponents and made the rest of the men slaves. While women were also made slaves and also raped. Muslim Jihadists looted all money and goods of opponents. Muhammad also didn't spare small children (who had no role in wars), but he made them slaves too for their entire lives. It didn't end there, but Islamic Sharia also got the evil of "Slavery by Birth", and thus coming generations of those slaves were also automatically born as slaves.
Thus, Muhammad brought 100% destruction against his opponents.
Ibn 'Aun reported: I wrote to Nafi' inquiring from him whether it was necessary to extend (to the disbelievers) an invitation to accept (Islam) before meeting them in fight. He wrote (in reply) to me that it was necessary (only) in the early days of Islam. The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) made a raid upon Banu Mustaliq while they were unaware and their cattle were having a drink at the water. He killed those who fought and imprisoned others (and made them slaves).
Or just look at what the Islamic Caliphate of Turkey was doing to opponents in Europe during the last couple of centuries, till the time it was stronger than others. And it was Turkey which did the genocide of the Armenian people in 1915 and captured the whole of Western Armenia, which is still under Turkey's occupation today. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Armenian_genocide in which Turkey killed 1.5 million Christian Armenians.
Today you will hear not a single word from Islamic preachers about this massacre of Christian Armenians, or what the Turkish Caliphate did to Christian Europe in the previous centuries. The reason is, that people do forgive and forget what happened in the past during wars.
No one is 100% perfect. Everyone can make mistakes. The West can also make mistakes, but still the West behaved much better than Muhammad and Muslims when they were in a position of strength.
Wars happened between Europe and Germany, between US and Japan, but people forgive and forget and don't hate normal people.
The West even forgot what Muhammad and Muslims did to non-Muslims and Christians. They let millions of Muslims to immigrate in their Western countries and gave them equal Human Rights.
Remember, there is not a single LAW which demands that Western countries have to allow the immigration of Muslims due to their past colonial mistakes. No, but they allowed it only in the name of humanity. While Islamic countries themselves don't allow the immigration of other Muslims from other Islamic countries.
The Core Issue:
Wars were waged by governments. One may understand if fanatic Islamic preachers only hate Western Governments for wars. No, but their hate is directed towards the Western SECULAR System itself and the Western people (the so-called Kafir non-Muslims).
These fanatic Islamic preachers are living in a Secular System, but they are absolutely not loyal to Secular values. They hate it, and they have already waged a war against the Secular system, and they are fighting a war to destroy the Secular system and impose the Sharia system.
These fanatic Islamic preachers are taking their inspiration directly from the Quranic Kafirophobia.
Pakistani Taliban waged a war against Islamic Pakistan and killed thousands of Pakistani Muslims and displaced 2 million from their homes
Once again, the wars of Iraq/Afghanistan are secondary issues, but the Main Clash is occurring on the issue of the imposition of the Islamic System by force.
What to talk about the clash between Islamic System and Secular System in the West, but let us see the clash between one Islamic System VS another Islamic System.
In 2009, Pakistani State handed over the whole area of Swat to Mullahs, so that they could impose their own Sharia system there (link).
But Mullahs still declared:
- Islamic Constitution of Islamic Pakistan to be a Kafir System.
- Pakistani Islamic Democracy to be a Kafir System.
After the deal, the Taliban reorganised and attacked and captured the adjacent area of Buner, and started moving towards Islamabad (the capital city of Pakistan), while they wanted to impose their own Islamic Sharia system on Islamabad through force.
Thus, a war started in Pakistan, where one Islamic System was fighting against another Islamic System, by calling it a Kafir system. Over 70 thousand Pakistani Muslims were killed in that war at the hands of their own Muslim brothers, and over 10 million people had to leave their homes and they became refugees in their own country.
Now you can imagine, when even the constitution and democracy and Islamic system of Islamic Pakistan are not acceptable to these fanatic Muslims, how then they are ever going to accept the democracy and the secular system of the Western countries?
Thus, these fanatic Muslims don't hate the Western system due to any wars, but basically, they hate them due to the Quranic Kafirophobia, and their wish to destroy the Western system, and to impose the Sharia system by force upon all non-Muslim countries.
