(From the Day Pigs will Fly Files):
Hindus to Muslims: We Beg you to Declare us off-limits for Jihad!
From the Wishful Thinking Department comes this choice item: "Hindu leaders for 'FATWA' against 'JIHAD' in India."
Do these silly Hindus not realize that the only path for Muslims is Jihad?
To say there is any other path is to invalidate the Noble Quran and decline to follow in the footsteps of the Apostle of Peace?
A group of Hindu leaders on Wednesday appealed to Islamic religious institutions and scholars to come forward with an appropriate 'fatwa' (edict) to declare that Hindus were not 'kaafirs' (non-believers) and that there need not be a "jihad" (war) against them in India.
"The fatwa should say that India is not 'Dar-ul-Harab', which means it is not a land against which Islamists have to wage a war," convener of the All India Acharya Sect Dayanand Maharaj told journalists in Mumbai on Wednesday.
Speaking at a seminar, Dayanand said our country is a 'dar-ul-amen', a land of peace, as here Muslims could practise Islam without any impediment....
Good luck with that. There is no theological justification by which Muslims could not regard Hindus as unbelievers -- nonetheless, the response to this request, if any is forthcoming, will be most interesting.
