  • The Intolerance of Islam

    Bangladesh is a secular country, but this is what Islam is doing to it.
    Islamophobia is a misnomer - there is every reason to fear Islam and not allow it to take over anymore countries.

    Day after clashes, Bangladesh capital eerily calm - CNN.com

    The Islamists are members of the ultra-conservative Hefazat-e-Islami (Protectors of Islam).
    They gathered Sunday in numbers that boggled the mind.
    Photos taken from balconies and rooftops showed a sea of bodies dressed in white panjabis and kufis -- both traditional Muslim attire in Bangladesh -- cramming the streets of Motijheel to the hilt.
    They demanded that the government enact laws that put to death anyone who blasphemed Islam.
    They called for mandatory Islamic education for all in this secular Muslim nation.
    They wanted a ban on statues, and the words "absolute trust and faith in the Almighty Allah" reinstated in the constitution.
    They declared that men and women should not be allowed to mix freely in this country of 150 million.
    And they vowed they would not leave until their demands -- 13 in all -- were met.
    The ensuing confrontation was violent. And bloody.
