Destroying Islamic fascism
First of all, for the first time I have seen a woman who serves the epitome of freedom-freedom that represents all that is peculiar to a realm of modern society.
Typically, she has abandoned religion to fight sin.
What do you think?
Faith represents our connection with our spirit and religion represents our connection with the world. Implying that our faith can be intact even when our connection to the world is wavered or even destroyed. People who believe in religion (perhaps those who have been nurtured under a conviction of religious traditions) are torn between the reality of the modern evolutions and religion (because religion is culture so it cannot be independent on traditions and yet evolution is reality)
Have you ever been a bit bothered by a tinge of knowledge, having thought you have been enslaved by religion?
This question perhaps will draw a line between what Zineb El Razoui called a barbarian and a person living in a modern context.
She vehemently expresses a fact that religion should not be an ultimatum. Personally I too believe that culture in its strength of being an inherent phenomenon that regulates our behaviour has no justification whatsoever to control the changes that come with human evolution…so we have to take it truthfully as though the Bible does not change with time because its message is only a fundamental message of God
Zineb El Razoui former Charlie Hebdo journalist and a French Moroccan writer has a realistic argument that truly represents a modern time. She was born of and raised in a moslem family, but that did not predetermine her ideology and proudly, hitherto hasn’t yet deterred her freedom to become indifferent from the Islamic dogma.
What point does she put across?
Its not actually a point. It’s a barrage of negations upon the larger denomination of societal beliefs, but which beliefs are those of her very own household. Her contentious book “destroying Islamic fascism” is based on the facts emanating from real life experiences even though the Islamic doctrines have stood the taste of times.
Who is she to depict this daunting paint of adversary- in the face of the Islamic fury of persecutions massive executions-and speak out loud? She has put her family to test but all in the name of standing for what she believes in.
This strong and yet soft expressive woman has a candid spirit that reveals of the unsavory teachings of the Islamic religion. She out rightly speaks about the Islamic fascism that enslaved especially Moslem women for thousands of years.
How about this…what would you think every Moslem woman thinks of…? “Other than simply for the sake of our religion, for us young Moslem girls, not a real thing that is Godly nests in our minds to convince us faithfully that hiding our natural endowments is absolutely a good thing…” She doesn’t veil because she has learned that veiling is sexism.
What is not sexism? Denying women their dreams of having a modern social fulfillment? She highlighted so many examples that would deem the Moslem ideology a subject of contempt.
Unless I can measure up to Zineb’s courage, I cannot afford to delve into her solid and candid ideas of her book to which apparently she has braved to bear the repercussions.
But what’s the point?
Are the interpreters of the scripture getting it right? Is it important to have a distinction between faith and religion so that where religion fails, faith can control .Are people willing to be enslaved by religion, or do they lack the courage to challenge?
I should frankly mention that religion should not be the ultimatum because people hide in it to get connected to the world. (That is to seek identity or ignorantly to follow instructions).
Teaching and learning about God is a spiritual endeavor that finds its place well placed in the heart of a believer. It’s all about knowing what the devil does and what God does. It’s about repentance, love, forgiveness…
Why is the congregation wandering, looking where to find a safe haven? Because people are nurtured to believe in religion other than their faith, it has become easier to be intuitive of their surroundings instead of conscience so that our behavior is rather predestined by culture.
The world is not fair, there will always be the wrong man; there will be wars, Moslem will kill, Catholics will drink and pastors will mint money. Sin is sin, it is not wise to attribute sin to the surroundings and yet our conscience lives. It’s better to condemn what is sin not what is not right and our conscience has a clear distinction between those two. Religion does not solve our problems.
