“collateral shahadat” – too good, yaar

posted by Aziz Poonawalla

This is absolutely brilliant -

As we already know, only Muslims are human beings. This is also an indisputable fact. So, when good Muslims meet non-Muslims, it is their duty to convert the latter. This way they are actually helping non-Muslims become human. If they convert, well and good. If not, they should be taken to task at once. Or better, bombed! After all, we believe in humanity.

(…) They should be bombed because it’s okay to bomb non-humans. However, humans (Muslims), who might also die in such an attack need not worry. Along with the bomber they too will go to heaven. This is called collateral shahadat.

by blogger Nadeem Paracha. Satire aside, this probably is how Al Qaeda actually thinks.

(There’s more where that came from)



  • Snippet

    I don’t think at this point there is any doubt that that is exactly how Al Qaida thinks.
    Is there?

  • Sami

    Is this a joke? People who can’t make rational points shouldn’t be communicating.

  • Your Name

    Al Qaida’s sick ideology shouldn’t be simplified like that.

    who thinks like this

  • abdul karim wali

    I want to know if this or anything like this is stated in al-qur’an or hadith, some of the views here are way, way to the left !!!!

  • farnaz

    Get rid of radical muslims and then muslims will no longer have any problems of others thinking badly of muslims as a whole.

  • a good muslim

    Everyone should read Dostoyevsky’s book, “The Devils.” No matter what the guiding “principles” that motivate a group of terrorists, ultimately, they are nihilists who are at war with the rest of humanity. They find ways to justify the killings of the innocent, and the guilty alike.

    Uhm ,
    did you all miss the WORD SATIRE!
    This was not a statement, but a comedic Admonishment of the Logic used by the Betrayers of Islam to do Evil and alin it’s Jihad, when it is only Murder.
    SATIRE = exposing human folly to ridicule. This was a Jibe meant to expose the illogical reasoning used by the Radicals
