atheism isn’t something that is “taught“”

If they don’t have something to teach, they just don’t do it, but they needn’t prohibit others as an excuse. Why should the students be deprived of introduction to religions? Keeping the students ignorant is not appropriate.
My emphasis was on the following points:

  • “As far as the Atheists, I am not against them in their persons and I am in favor of equitable treatment to them by every Religion.
  • The better idea as I visualize is that there should be periodically seminars in the schools/colleges in their halls on the subjects about religion/no-religions.
  • I don’t say that there should be teachers to teach every religion in the schools. I say that there should be seminars in the schools/colleges where representatives of religions/no-religions should give lectures on the selected topics and then there should be provision of a question answer session for the students. These seminars should be conducted by moderators of the City officials.
  • As somebody has to manage such events to provide equitable opportunity to every religion/no-religion that is interested in the event. The issue of moderators could be sorted between the school/colleges and the cities locally.
  • My point is that the students get equal access/information to the religions of believers as also to the non-believers be they Atheism/Agnosticism/Skepticism or any shades of them. Under the name of Secular-ism, which means equitable treatment to everybody they should not remain ignorant of Religions/No-Religions.”

Right, please?

“freedom of religion” or “religion is wholly for Allah”

November 14, 2017

It is One-True-God who has allowed freedom of religion to every human being as per the scheme of life and purpose of life set and designed by Him. This is what has been described in the verse “religion is wholly for Allah”. Meccans usurped this right of the Muslims.
To restore freedom of religion which is an established human right has been mentioned in verse* of Quran. As is the first part eradication of “persecution” a justified norm so was the second part “freedom of religion” or “religion is wholly for Allah” also a justified norm.

Okay, but is the persecution in question limited only to burning houses, torture, banning from congregation and exile? The part where you are to fight disbelievers until “religion is wholly for Allah” is particular troubling.

Thanks for agreeing for the first part regarding”persecution”. The Meccans persecuted Muslims because of their religion. They neither allowed Muslims to believe as per Muslims’ faith nor allowed them to practice according to their religion:

“The slaves who believed came from all communities. Bilal was a negro, Suhaib a Greek. They belonged to different faiths. Jabr and Suhaib were Christians, Bilal and ‘Ammar, idol-worshippers. Bilal was made to lie on hot sand, loaded with stones, and boys were made to dance on his chest, and his master, Umayyah bin Khalf, tortured him thus and then asked him to renounce Allah and the Prophet and sing the praises of the Meccan gods, Lat and ‘Uzza. Bilal only said, Ahad, Ahad … (God is One).

Exasperated, Umayyah handed Bilal over to street boys, asking them to put a
cord round his neck and drag him through the town over sharp stones. Bilal’s body bled, but he went on muttering, Ahad, Ahad… Later, when Muslims settled in Medina and were able to live and worship in comparative peace, the Holy Prophet appointed Bilal a Mu’adhdhin, the official who calls the worshippers to prayers. Being an African, Bilal missed the (h), in the Arabic Ash-hadu (I bear witness). Medinite believers laughed at his defective pronunciation, but the Prophet rebuked them and told them how dear Bilal was to God for the stout faith he showed under Meccan tortures. Abu Bakr paid ransom for Bilal and many other slaves and secured their release.

Among them was Suhaib, a prosperous merchant, whom the Quraysh continued to belabour even after his release. When the Holy Prophet left Mecca to settle down in Medina, Suhaib wanted to go with him. But the Meccans stopped him. He could not take away from Mecca, they said, the wealth he had earned in Mecca. Suhaib offered to surrender all his property and earnings and asked whether they would then let him go. The Meccans accepted the arrangement. Suhaib reached Medina empty-handed and saw the Prophet, who heard him and congratulated him, saying, “This was the best bargain of your life.” Unquote
