Again Proving That Islam Is A Human Rights Violation

Iíve got no problem with the average Muslim Ė but stuff like this raises serious questions as to whether Islam as practiced today constitutes a violation of international human rights norms.

On Tuesday morning, Saudi newspapers reported that the death sentence had been handed down in the town of Hafr al-Batin to a man who had "denounced his faith".

He was not named but was said to have uploaded a video of himself tearing up a copy of the Koran and hitting it with his shoe.

"In the video he cursed God, Prophet Mohammed (peace be upon him) and his daughter Fatimah and ripped a copy of the Holy Qur'an and hit it with a shoe," the Saudi Gazette quoted an official as saying. "The death sentence was issued after his apostasy was proved."

The death penalty is the standard penalty for apostasy in the Muslim world, though it is rarely carried out, even in Saudi Arabia which still carries out regular executions.

The man in this case has the right to appeal, and can also avoid the penalty by repenting.

Now letís look at the relevant portions of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Article 18. Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes freedom to change his religion or belief, and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship and observance.

Article 19. Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers.

* * *

Article 30. Nothing in this Declaration may be interpreted as implying for any State, group or person any right to engage in any activity or to perform any act aimed at the destruction of any of the rights and freedoms set forth herein.

Now letís boil this down to its essentials.

This man has an internationally recognized human right to reject the faith in which he was raised and to instead embrace religious beliefs (or non-belief) without penalty.

This man has an internationally recognized right to communicate his contemptuous opinions of Islamís false prophet and his daughter, and to express his contempt for the teachings of Islam by abusing his own inanimate personal property.

The government of Saudi Arabia has an obligation under international law to respect the right of this man to change his religion and to express his religious opinions.

That the Islamic faith demands the execution of individuals for exercising these fundamental human rights is itself a violation of internationally recognized human rights norms.
