The Islamic inquisition is in full swing
The Islamic Inquisition is in full swing

THE MODERN TOKYO TIMES
In parts of the world it is clear that societies are going backwards and not forward and this notably applies to many Islamic societies. Liberals in the West or the fear of political correctness means that you have a media blackout “on reality” and instead every excuse is given. Yet in the early 21st century it is clear that “the stone age mentality” is still alive in many parts of the world.
Indeed, it could be argued that “the stone age mentality” was more progressive than modern day Saudi Arabia, just to give one example. After all, women would have had more freedom in the stone-age period than they would have in modern day Saudi Arabia.
After all, in modern day Saudi Arabia which is the cradle of Islam, it is abundantly clear that females must cover up from head to toe and they must not mingle freely with males. At the same time, no non-Muslim places of worship are allowed and Buddhists, Christians, Hindus, Sikhs, and others, must not pray openly or speak openly about their faith.
If Buddhists or Christians, or other non-Muslims, speak openly about their faith in modern day Saudi Arabia then they will face the Islamic inquisition. This means that they will be questioned by the religious police in Saudi Arabia and they will face the wrath of Islamic Sharia law.
The situation becomes even more alarming when it applies to a Muslim converting to another religion, because this is punishable by death in Saudi Arabia. Given this reality, the Islamic inquisition is a modern day fact in the lands of Mecca and Medina and it is abundantly clear that religious and gender equality is seen to be a threat to Islam.
Therefore, females, non-Muslims, or anyone who supports another world view faces the wrath of the ongoing Islamic inquisition in Saudi Arabia. This applies to all aspects of life and if a Buddhist or Christian male had sex with a Muslim female or wanted to marry a Muslim female; then the penalty would mean death for the non-Muslim male and prison for the Muslim female.
If nations like the United Kingdom introduced the same system and imposed even 1% of the same restrictions on Muslims; then liberals, champagne socialists, and the political correct brigade would be attacking the British government and system. However, the same people who care about human rights and equality have “hit a brick wall.”
This applies to a blackout on reality, therefore, it is fine for Muslims in various parts of the world, for example in Afghanistan, the Maldives, Saudi Arabia, and Somalia, to support killing all apostates from Islam and to victimize women into becoming shadows. Yet if someone points out the complete backwardness of this system and religion; then you are deemed to be a racist or other terminologies are used in order to silence you into submission.
However, if we look at the situation in many parts of the world, then it is clear that the Islamic inquisition is ongoing and non-Muslims are being killed or victimized because of their non-Islamic religion.
For example, radical Islamists in Somalia are intent on destroying all things which are deemed to be un-Islamic and in order to do this Islamic Sharia Law is in full swing, alongside intimidation, the killing of Christians, banning music, chopping hands and feet off, and other draconian measures. This society, according to devout Sunni Islamists in Somalia, is meant to be the “new way” and Islamists state that they are following the teachings of Mohammed and that their theories are based on the Koran and the Hadiths.
In this sense, radical Islamists are claiming that it is they, and not liberal Muslims, who are carrying out “real Islam.” In a strange irony, they can claim that this is true because Mohammed stated the following:
“Fight those who do not believe in Allah, nor in the latter day, nor do they prohibit what Allah and His Messenger have prohibited, nor follow the religion of truth, out of those who have been given the Book, until they pay the tax in acknowledgment of superiority and they are in a state of subjection.” Koran 9:29
Mohammed also stated in Hadith 9:4 that “Wherever you find infidels kill them; for whoever kills them shall have reward on the Day of Resurrection.” Mohammed also stated in Hadith 9:50, 57 that “No umma (a member of the Muslim community) should be killed for killing a kafir (an infidel) … Whoever changes his Islamic religion, kill him.” ( http://www.islamreview.com )
Of course not all majority Muslim societies are the same and you have very different thought patterns, for example Muslims in Senegal or the Alawites in Syria accept accommodation. Islam, like any major religion, will have a huge diversity within the belief system and cultural differences or geography will alter the way Islam is worshipped.
However, the more a mainly Muslim society turns to the complete message of Mohammed then clearly the more draconian this nation happens to be. Therefore, in nations where Islamic Sharia law is implemented fully we only see one outcome.
This outcome is complete Islamic indoctrination and the complete subjugation of all non-Muslims or minority Muslim groups by the dominant Muslim sect in the respective nation state. For example, in Saudi Arabia it is clear that this society is being governed by the Islamic inquisition and all non-Muslims and Shia Muslims must abide by the dominant Sunni sect which controls and dictates everything.
While in other parts of the mainly Muslim world we are seeing a fresh wave of Islamic fundamentalism and in modern day Somalia they stoned a young female to death after she had been raped. The Taliban and Al Qaeda also support the complete annihilation of other religions and the complete subjugation of women. After all, the Taliban even destroyed all forms of Buddhism with regards to statues and temples, despite the complete eradication of the Buddhist faith after the past Islamic inquisition had destroyed ancient Hinduism and Buddhism in Afghanistan.
It is therefore essential that the Islamic inquisition is challenged and stopped because no nation should violate the rights of either women or other faiths when it applies to one hundred per cent compliance. The first nation that needs to be challenged is Saudi Arabia because this nation is funding radical Islam in many nations and since the time of Mohammed it is clear that all non-Muslims in Arabia have suffered and been religiously cleansed.
The Islamic inquisition in Arabia began in the 7th century and it continues today in modern day Saudi Arabia. Yet more disturbingly, it is clear that in places like southern Thailand you are witnessing a puritanical version of Islam amongst some of the Muslims in this part of Thailand. This was alien to most Thai Muslims but of course the combination of Saudi Arabia and madrasas in Pakistan is changing all that. Therefore, the Islamic inquisition is gaining in some parts of the world once more and if this madness is not tackled then one day it will get closer to home and then it will be too late.
