No freedom!

Catherine Wainwright

Rajab 12, 14362015-05-01

Western regimes talk much about freedom but Muslims in these societies are targeted as part of a campaign that makes mockery of their tall claims.

Muslims are not Terrorists

Muhammad H. al-'Asi

Rabi' al-Thani 01, 14362015-01-22

Allah says in a manner consoling the Prophet (and) with a tone of advice وَلَقَدْ نَعْلَمُ أَنَّكَ يَضِيقُ صَدْرُكَ بِمَا يَقُولُونَ We know that your chest feels constricted due to what they say (or) you feel tight in your chest because of what they are saying. (Surah Al Hijr verse 97) We know these are Allah’s words and the reference is to Allah. Allah’s speaking to the Prophet. The antidote to this is the following completion of the ayah فَسَبِّحْ When you feel like that, (Allah is saying), the consequence of that should be say subhanAllah… (Surah Al Hijr verse 98) In the case of the Prophet it is more than just verbalizing a word, it is actualizing the meaning- something that is lost on many Muslims. بِحَمْدِ رَبِّكَ … praise Allah … (Surah Al Hijr verse 98)

Charlie Hebdo, Islamophobia and ‘freedom of speech’

Crescent International, Zafar Bangash

Rabi' al-Awwal 10, 14362015-01-01

The murderous attack on the Islamophobic French magazine Charlie Hebdo is being used to whip up anti-Muslim hysteria and make fascism respectable. Pity the marginalized Muslims of France, indeed anywhere else in the Western world.

Does free speech mean insulting others?

Imtiaz Ali Syed

Dhu al-Hijjah 16, 14332012-11-01

Muslims have effectively and repeatedly challenged the west’s ludicrous assertion that freedom of speech is absolute. A reader agrees and exposes the west’s hypocrisy.

Is freedom of speech absolute?

Zafar Bangash

Dhu al-Qa'dah 14, 14332012-10-01

While the west claims free speech is absolute, there is prohibition on anti-Semitism. There is also systemic targeting of Muslims in the US on mere “suspicion” that they might be “thinking” to harm Americans. Why the double standard?

Sha'ban 11, 14332012-07-01

No free speech for Muslims in US

Shahid Saleem

Rajab 11, 14332012-06-01

When US President Barack Obama (an Uncle Tom if there ever was one!) or even petty officials talk about America the “land of the free,” it makes me sick.

It’s a crime to protest Israeli envoy’s speech!

Editor

Dhu al-Qa'dah 03, 14322011-10-01

How free is the US and what does it mean to have freedom of speech? Some people now call the US a police state but freedom of speech appears limited only to those that abuse Islam, Muslims, and their revered personalities. Heaven help if you want to criticize Israel or its representatives.

How free is the West’s “free” media?

Zafar Bangash

Rajab 18, 14312010-07-01

The same right, however, does not extend to those criticizing the crimes perpetrated by the Zionist State. Any criticism of Israel is immediately denounced as anti-semitism

Berkeley students discover the limits of freedom of expression

Tahir Mahmoud

Dhu al-Hijjah 05, 14212001-03-01

The US media’s anti-Islam bias is well known; it is reflective of the establishment’s views. Academia in the US, however, used to pride itself on being free of such biases, yet of late the anti-Muslim virus seems to have infected these so-called bastions of intellectual freedom as well.
