Little Girl Malala Yousafzai: An Existential Threat to Islam


                                                                   The Taliban are not an aberration of Islam. They are Islam. 


Not Taliban but Islam is the real culprit behind attempted murder of Malala, because the Taliban is simply following the teachings of the Quran, Sunna of Muhammad and Sharia Law, which is religiously binding upon all Muslims.


Malala Yousafzai – a very brave a 14-year-old school girl – was shot and badly wounded while boarding her school bus by a member of the Taliban.


What was her crime to deserve execution?


At the age of 13 years, she championed the cause of the people of Swat by blogging for the BBC under a pseudonym about the atrocities of the Tehrik-e-Taliban and other Islamic extremist groups. She stated that she wanted an education – her ambition was to be a doctor. She campaign for education and rights of women in the Pakistani tribal belt, where the Taliban have imposed education and work for women.


Courageous for a little girl she is, he was nominated for several awards, and became runner-up in the International Children's Peace Prize (Runner-up, 2011) and won the Pakistan National Peace Prize (2011).


The Taliban predictably declared her a symbol of obscenity and accused her of spreading negative propaganda for the Taliban. There on, she was targeted for extermination and she is fighting for her life.


Islam, not Taliban


Again - Not Taliban but Islam is the real culprit behind attempted murder of Malala, because the Taliban is simply following the teachings of the Quran, Sunna of Muhammad and Sharia Law, which is religiously binding upon all Muslims.


Malala Yousafzai was a threat to Islam. By standing up for her human rights, and for the equality of women, and her human right to be free to decide her own future, Malala stood for the liberation of Muslim women. In other words, she was a symbol for the liberation of Muslim women, one-half of the Muslim populations, whose subjugation and repression is sanction by holy dictums of the Quran, Sunnah and Sharia.



After Kafirs, Allah, the Islamic God, hates the Muslim women most. Muslims women don’t have liberty and humanity. The Quran sets up the intellectual frame work for their subjugation and repression. They are the property of Muslim men. They are deficient in intelligence. Muslim women are only baby factories for their husbands.


Here is a sample of Quranic verses, the word of God, that belittle, dehumanize and subjugate women to Muslim men.


Sura (5:6) - "...if ye have had contact with women, and ye find not water, then go to clean, high ground and rub your faces and your hands with some of it." Women are polluting. Muslim men purify themselves following a casual contact with a woman.


Sura (4:176) “They ask thee for a legal decision. Say: God directs (thus) about those who leave no descendants or ascendants as heirs. ... if there are brothers and sisters, (they share), the male having twice the share of the female.


Sura (4:34) - "Men are the maintainers of women because Allah has made some of them to excel others and because they spend out of their property; the good women are therefore obedient, guarding the unseen as Allah has guarded; and (as to) those on whose part you fear desertion, admonish them, and leave them alone in the sleeping-places and beat them; then if they obey you, do not seek a way against them; surely Allah is High, Great."


Sura (2:228) - "And women shall have rights similar to the rights against them, according to what is equitable; but men have a degree (of advantage) over them. And God is Exalted in Power, Wise.”


Sura (4:11) – “God (thus) directs you as regards your Children's (Inheritance): to the male, a portion equal to that of two females.” (see also Sura 4:176)


A husband has the legal right and religious obligation to beat a wife if she disobeys him, is disloyal to him or simply does not please him. The concept of wife abuse does not exist in Islam. According to Islamic law, a husband may strike his wife for any one of the following four reasons: (1) She does not attempt to make herself beautiful for him (i.e. "let's herself go"), (2) She refuses to meet his sexual demands, (3) She leaves the house without his permission or a "legitimate reason", and (4) She neglects her religious duties. Any of these are also sufficient grounds for divorce.


Sura (2:223) - "Your wives are as a tilth unto you; so approach your tilth when or how ye will." Wives are to be sexually available to their husbands in all ways at all times. They serve their husbands at his command.




Great Islamic scholar and historian Al-Tabari writes (The History of al-Tabari, IX: 112-114):


“Now then, O people, you have a right over your wives and they have a right over you. You have [the right] that they should not cause anyone of whom you dislike to tread your beds, and that they should not commit any open indecency (fahishah). If they do, then God permits you to shut them in separate rooms and to beat them, but not severely. If they abstain from [evil], they have the right to their food and clothing in accordance with custom (bi’l-maruf). Treat women well, for they are [like] domestic animals (‘awan) with you and do not possess anything for themselves......”


Bukhari (6:301) writes on the deficiency in intelligence of Muslim women:

"[Muhammad] said, ‘Is not the evidence of two women equal to the witness of one man?' They replied in the affirmative. He said, 'This is the deficiency in her intelligence.'"


How dare Malala, a member of the subjugated female sex, that too a little girl dare fight for the rights and liberation of Pakistani women, and challenge the Taliban. She did get her deserving deserts. And the Taliban has threatened to target her again, if she survives.


What the Taliban does are not an aberration of Islam. Their actions represent Islam in truth. Malala is murdered by Islam.
