The Statesman has hurt the easily bruised feelings of Muslims in Calcutta. They are hurt, they are upset, they are weeping. And they are taking The Statesman's editor Ravindra Kumar and publisher Anand Sinha to court.
The article was simple and to the point, and expressed a point of view. But Muslims do not like such things (which is why they have so little diversity of opinions, or even intellectual disagreement, in their own countries).
Hence, they are upset with the Statesman, calling it all kinds of names for reproducing an article from the UK's Independent last week.
'Why should I respect these oppressive religions?'
The article concerned the erosion of the right to criticize religions. Anyone with half a brain will gladly concede that there are several hundred creeds which crave criticism, some of them actually quite daffy.
It is the educated opinion of this blogwriter that Islam is among the worst indeed, being a faith for torturers, tyrants, and pederasts.
In the article, Johann Hari said: "I don't respect the idea that we should follow a 'Prophet' who at the age of 53 had sex with a nine-year old girl, and ordered the murder of whole villages of Jews because they wouldn't follow him."
Muhammad the prophet bile be upon him was a child-molesting psychopath? Who knew?
That's a rhetorical question, by the way, because it was exceedingly well-known at the time, and has not been denied ever since. Muhammad was a sex-deviant, a pervert, a robber, and a murderer. And also a person of very Pakistani sensibilities, though that pustulent pox of a country had not been invented yet.
You're very welcome.
Intemperate Muslims have been howling and screaming in front of the offices of the Statesman since the publishing of the article. There has been violence. There have been baton charges. There is much to-do.
Some of them are no doubt drunk.
Oh Muslims, why don't you all move your precious selves to Britain, where they take your little feelings seriously, and wring their pasty hands on your behalf - heck, even going so far as to ban a Dutch politician from entering the country because of sad little Islamic upsetness?
[As can be seen here:
I quote: "Dutch member of parliament Geert Wilders said on Wednesday he would press ahead with plans to visit Britain on Thursday despite an official entry ban by the British government." End quote.]
Go on, all of you bally Muslims, shove off, they'll love you over there. We do not need you in India, the Lord knows that you have proven yourselves a nuisance for centuries, and almighty treacherous besides since independence. But the British like you. They positively love you. They want to cater to your whims and emotional blackmail. Who knows, they might even have a use for you. They have utmost affection for hopping-mad Muslims.
Certainly we don't. In fact, we can't stand the sight of you lot anymore, and really wish that all you Muslim gandkich**ts would just go away.
