He says that the government should not be needing to put restrictions on the first amendment. People should know to not be ignorant without there being a law. He uses real-world examples to show that he is against limiting free speech. Zafar discusses the Pastor McConnell case and believes that the pastor should not have been arrested for his speeches. Zafar acknowledges the defamatory things McConnell said about Muslims and affirms that he held the right to say those things.
God is not accessible to man to ask which religion is the truth. Nathan uses the judge in the parable to explain that each religion should prove its truth through kindness and absolute love to all. One religion should not be scornful of others in order to justify its superiority. Each religion should respect and value the positions of other religions while still staying true to its own. Nathan uses this parable to preach religious tolerance to
Evangelium Vitae was written to state the value of human life and maintains that societies and individuals should do everything in their power to keep and appreciate the life. Any type or form of killing is not acceptable and is prohibited. God has given government the power to determine when capital punishment is due. ( Genesis 9-13) Showing great joy when the death penalty is employed should not be allowed. And Christians should not fight against the government’s right to execute the perpetrators of the most evil of
They prohibit the use of torture on any person under any situations whatsoever. Some similar provisions are mentioned here. Article 5 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights asserts unwaveringly that ― “No one shall be subjected to torture or to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or Punishment” — the only enumerated right left unqualified. Article 3 of the European Convention on Human Rights demands that ― “No one shall be subjected to torture or to inhuman or to degrading treatment or punishment.” Title 18 Section 2340A of the United States Code categorically prohibits torture according to the State Department of the United States that has made it clear that ― “No exceptional circumstances may be invoked as a justification for
The decline of family unite: out of wedlock birth and single parent households. Also lack of respect for women. Islam is a religion that promotes ethical manners by providing people with the knowledge on the benefits of morality and the consequences of immorality. People can keep it as a human, by nature, tend to preserve themselves forbidden relationships, but the influence, social media, satan, and the environment they’re surrounded by pushes them to take such action. Historians in the history of nations, religions and civilizations have unanimously agreed that man is
As it is mentioned: “To be devout towards the Deity and to observe justice towards human beings, and to harm nobody, either of his own accord or at the command of others, and always to hate the wicked and help the righteous” (Jewish War 2.139-141). The similarity between the oath of the Essenes and the commandments shows the importance to which the Essenes believed in a strict Mosaic covenant way of life. Outsiders wishing to join the Essenes would not only seek fulfillment from a life of exclusivity, living segregated amongst other chosen members, but they would also be fulfilled in serving God by living a life according to strict Mosaic law, considered by some to be the highest level of authority since it was
No one is forced or should be forced to observe any religious practice against their will. Not all Muslim women wear headscarves and if that personal choice is frown upon by certain Muslim communities then it is a threat to their civil liberties of equality which is an entirely separate issue from religious freedoms. If the French government is interested in protecting equality then it should engage in programs or rather legislation that will ensure the Muslim women are not treated unequally (oppressed) in their communities. Banning a very strong element of the Muslim religion on the basis of trying to establish equality is rather robbing people of their basic right to religious freedom. The legislation is a slap in the face to
We seek refuse in Allah, from the mischief of our souls Discourses On Islamic Way Of Life (Vol: VIII) 98 And from our evil deeds. He whom Allah guides none can mislead and whom He leaves to stray none can guide. And, we bear witness that there is no god except Allah Who is Alone and has no partner, and we bear witness that Sayyidina Muhammad is His servant and Messenger-May Allah bless him and (likewise) his family and Companions. And may He favour him and give him peace. We have it from Abu Musa al Ashari that the Messenger of Allahhas said “A Muslim is he from whose tongue and hands other Muslims are Safe.” (Tirmizi, Book of
Rules for the Satyagrahi69 Gandhi prescribed strict commandments for the guidance of the satyagrahi: • A satyagrahi, i.e., a civil resister, will harbor no anger. • He will suffer the anger of the opponent. • In so doing, he will put up with assaults from the opponent, never retaliate; but he will not submit out of fear of punishment or the like to any order given in anger. GANDHI’S TECHNIQUE OF MASS MOBALIZATION • When any person in authority seeks to arrest a civil resister, he will voluntarily submit to the arrest and he will not resist the attachment or removal of his own property, if any, when it is sought to be confiscated. • If a civil resister has any property in his possession as a trustee, he will refuse to surrender it, even
Respect is earned, not given.” Each and every one should not condemn nor judge other races’ way of expressing their cultural norms. For example, other religions should learn to respect the Hindus by not slaughtering and eating cows in their presence. It is the Hindus’ belief that cows are their holy animal. Besides, Malaysians should be given freedom in sharing their thoughts and speech without facing any oppressions. This will help to create harmony in Malaysia.
