Quran is clear that a person deriding or ridiculing religion or religious personalities is not to be killed as this subject is separately discussed:

[4:137] O ye who believe! believe in Allah and His Messenger, and in the Book which He has revealed to His Messenger, and the Book which He revealed before it. And whoso disbelieves in Allah and His angels, and His Books, and His Messengers, and the Last Day, has surely strayed far away.
[4:138] Those who believe, then disbelieve, then again believe, then disbelieve, and then increase in disbelief, Allah will never forgive them nor will He guide them to the way.
[4:139] Give to the hypocrites the tidings that for them is a grievous punishment,
[4:140] Those who take disbelievers for friends rather than believers. Do they seek honour at their hands? Then let them remember that all honour belongs to Allah.
[4:141] And He has already revealed to you in the Book that, when you hear the Signs of Allah being denied and mocked at, sit not with them until they engage in a talk other than that; for in that case you would be like them. Surely, Allah will assemble the hypocrites and the disbelievers in Hell, all together;

Those who deride religion or the religious personalities are not to be killed, their punishment is in the hereafter, not in this world. If there is going on a discussion/debate or dialogue or some other social meeting/activity, the Muslims are advised to temporarily suspend that process till such time they again become serious and refrain from their derision or ridicule spree/spell/mood.
Some people here also do such things, so I go a step backward and don’t respond to such derision or ridicule and resume that in some other-way so that they don’t indulged in it. Please
Regards

The cartoonists who persist on such acts as a matter of policy , however, could be tried in the courts if the remedy is available in the law of the land in the West, these days*.

It was the lawful and Godly act for the Police to arrest the cartoonist and to prosecute them and to put a stop to the cartoons.

Reason and ridicule

August 8, 2015

I appreciate the good points mentioned in the article and its comments to defend religion reasonably. Regards

the way?

Angry mouth

Criticisms of christians and christian faith seem to be more widespread and trenchant than they used to be. And the main basis of the attack is that christianity is not reasonable, not based on evidence. Yet in my experience, the attacks that have greatest impact are not intellectual but emotional, built as much on ridicule as on reason.

What are we to make of this? And how should we deal with it?

I am an Ahmadi peaceful Muslim; I also support the idea of a peaceful (without deriding and ridicule) dialogue between the revealed religions and non-religions (Atheists, Agnostics, Skeptics; Humanists) all included.

I live in Toronto; can we meet here (or your like-minded friends)?

To be an Atheist only one has to deny God; absolutely no knowledge required

August 6, 2013

The Atheists in these blogs are of different hues and shades; they have often stated that they have only one thing in common that they deny existence of God.

They don’t have necessarily to be a scientist or following the scientific method that they have to hide behind many a times. It is sufficient to be ignorant to become an Atheist.

The New Atheists have an additional quality; they disrespect, ridicule and deride while reason rests aside.

Please correct me if I am wrong.
