Very Little to Debate at ‘Human Rights in Islam’ Discussion

A part of the article by Norwegian Human Rights activist, Hege Storhaug.

From Pajamas Media:

It is impossible for me to provide a complete account of the debate on “Human Rights in Islam: Just or Unjust?” that was held under the auspices of IslamNet, Norway’s largest Islamic organization, on November 7, 2011. The “ideas” that were presented were utterly lacking in logic or intelligence, and the whole thing raced by very fast.  It was almost impossible to keep up with it all: claims were made at a tempo out of another world, and were absolutely without substance.  It was far more a revival meeting than a debate.

They delightedly applauded the chopping off of hands and feet.  And they didn’t raise an eyebrow when executions committed by family agreement were defended as a reasonable ”human right in Islam.”

You would be forgiven for thinking that we were in deepest Saudi Arabia, or in a long-ago century.  Far from it. We were in an auditorium at Oslo University College, where our future was being hatched onstage.  The place was packed, and the great majority of the young students were wearing clothes that identifed themselves as followers of the Prophet.

  1. “Human” rights in Islam? Always thought that the only rights, assuming there were any at all, were that of Allat! As such the “human” variety did not enter into the equation. There are no rights in Islam other than duties, yes duties to Allat or the mullahs, -Allat being construed in their own image-. Sounds so back to front, and Allat sounds such a repulsive little tyrant, claiming all those rights for himself with no corresponding duties. Alas but that is what happens when the concept of the Diety is so barbarously dragged down into the gutter of human affairs, particularly the affairs of the corrupt mullahs or imans. It is so just unforgiveable!
