China understands the dark side of religious fanatism, fundamentalism and subversive activities of terror networks that grips the whole world today. We have seen many lives have been lost by Islamic people. (I don’t like to accuse all people embraced in Islam, but most terror attacks are done by ‘Muslims’ in ‘Islam’ and from Middle East and South Asian countries, This terror activities are direct enemies of our liberty, democracy and progress of civilization. This terror activities also enemy of liberal and progressive Muslims. It’s only aim is to thwart the process of civilization, and pulling back to the era of 600 B.C. A time when barbaric activities were prevalent, when ignorance and illiteracy kept people chained in a helpless state. People were like beast. We have seen, the world has seen the Taliban regime, we have seen Islamic barbarity. People are being stoned to death, we have seen limbs were cut, amputated, we have seen unrest and blood shed by people belongs to Islam and in the name of Islam. You can have lot instances of dark sides of Islam. Do you want this? No common people look at these instances with good terms nor any liberal Muslim also want this barbarity.
In this world I think, to my best of knowledge, There are a lot religions, ( Baha'i, Buddhism, Christianity, Confucianism, Hinduism, Islam, Jainism, Judaism, Shinto, Sikhism, Taoism, Zoroastrianism etc. ) and every religion has its scriptures, these were written in olden days. These were written to rule people in those periods, basically they are used now to understand the history of mankind in those pre history times. All religious scriptures say and claim they were direct from God or inspired by god. And most religious scriptures instigate genocide or killing to unbelievers or people belong to different religion. I can quote the verses or instances at least from three major religions, from Hindu, Christian and Muslim scriptures.
In last a few decades, I have not heard any abominable genocide done in the name of religion or god by any religious group except Islam. And more over it is happening throughout the world. The Muslims are manipulating very cleverly in united nations to curve international laws in their favour and they are being indulged to. ( Sharia or Islamic law source: http://pacafour.blogspot.com/) they are doing it converting a country into Islam. United nation and Human rights activists can only give peace to mankind. ( we have faith on them). They can make law that no religion can have supremacy over any country or any international law. If any religion has the state power or supremacy it can abuse human rights, liberty and democracy. People belongs to other religion can not live with proper dignity in that country.
Combating Religious Intolerance With a U.N. Resolution
“It probably slipped most people’s notice. It wasn’t a “big” story. It was a little routine vote at the United Nations on a resolution called “Combating Defamation of Religion”. It passed — for the ninth year in a row. The resolution, on the surface, seems almost a no-brainer for the General Assembly. Of course, people should be respectful of other religions. But that’s not exactly what this resolution says.
Many member nations, including the United States, as well as several non-profit groups like the Becket Fund and the Washington-based American Center for Law and Justice, see the resolution as the proverbial “wolf in sheep’s clothing.”

U.N. Ruling: Islamic Sharia Taboo in Human Rights Council Debates
Published by UN Watch
In its recently concluded June session, the UN Human Rights Council ruled that any references to Islamic Shar’ia law are prohibited in the council chamber. Even outgoing UN rights chief Louise Arbour, who more than once sought to appease the UN’s anti-blasphemy squads, expressed her concern.
Islamic bid to amend UN religious intolerance resolution
Islamic states are challenging the draft text of the annual UN resolution on religious intolerance, demanding that deference to religion be allowed to trump freedom of the press and freedom of speech.
Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) demanded that the resolution:
1) Express alarm at the increased negative projection of religions in the media;
Specifically, the OIC wants to include a new paragraph:
alarmed at increasing instances of deliberate and systematic negative projection of religions, their adherents and prophets in media and by influential political parties and groups.
Islamic Protesters “Pleased” With Louise Arbour’s Response
When the alliance of fifty-six Islamic states complained to Ms. Arbour in 2005 about the cartoons in a Danish newspaper that they deemed blasphemous—and which eventually served as grounds for bloody riots—she reportedly instructed the UN experts on racism and religion to follow up on their complaint.
UN rights council passes Islamic resolution on religious defamation
GENEVA: The top U.N. rights body on Thursday passed a resolution proposed by Islamic countries saying it is deeply concerned about the defamation of religions and urging governments to prohibit it.
The European Union said the text was one-sided because it primarily focused on Islam.
The U.N. Human Rights Council, which is dominated by Arab and other Muslim countries, adopted the resolution on a 21-10 vote over the opposition of Europe and Canada.
US Mounting Effort To Counter Limits on Speech Critical of Islam
The debate focuses on a United Nations resolution called “Combating Defamation of Religion,” sponsored by the 57-nation Organization of the Islamic Conference. The resolution was adopted by the U.N. General Assembly in 2005 and is up for renewal in the next couple of months. While the resolution stresses the need to fight defamation against all faiths, Islam is the only one explicitly mentioned
Criminalizing Christians Now Losing Steam at U.N. - But Religious Rights Advocates Warn Plan Still a Danger
"U.N. Watch, a Geneva-based organization that monitors the U.N.'s Human Rights Council, acknowledged what we have stated all along that the resolution is 'aimed at the Western world to intimidate anyone from criticizing radical Islam,'" said Jay Sekulow of the American Center for Law & Justice.
…………… The group repeatedly has lobbied since 1999 for the plan, based on the Cairo Declaration of Human Rights in Islam, "which states that all rights are subject to Shariah law, and makes Shariah law the only source of reference for human rights."
The ACLJ has launched a petition effort to raise awareness of the campaign, to be delivered to the U.N. High Commissioner on Human Rights.
According to the ACLJ's European division, the European Center for Law & Justice, "The 'defamation of religion' resolutions establish as the primary focus and concern the protection of ideas and religions generally, rather than protecting the rights of individuals to practice their religion, which is the chief purpose of international religious freedom law.
"The implementation of domestic laws to combat defamation of religion in many OIC countries reveals a selective and arbitrary enforcement toward religious minorities, who are often Christians. Those violations are frequently punishable by the death penalty."
The newest "anti-defamation" plan was submitted in March. It cites a declaration "adopted by the Islamic Conference of Foreign Ministers" at a meeting in Islamabad "which condemned the growing trend of Islamophobia and systematic discrimination against adherents of Islam."
This year the U.N. marks the 60th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), which was adopted on Dec. 10, 1948. In another submission to the HRC, three NGOs – the International Humanist and Ethical Union, the Association for World Education and the Association of World Citizens – said it was now critical to stress the need for, and discuss threats to, the agreed universal standards contained in the landmark declaration. They reiterated long-held concerns about a document adopted by OIC member states in 1990, the Cairo Declaration of Human Rights in Islam, which says all human rights and freedoms must be subject to Islamic law (shari’a).

OIC Wants 'Binding Legal Instrument' to Fight IslamophobiaThursday, March 13, 2008By Patrick Goodenough, International Editor (CNSNews.com) - An international humanist organization has warned that Islamic governments are trying to use the United Nations to shut down free speech. The warning comes as a bloc of Islamic states is holding a summit with "Islamophobia" high on the agenda.
Paula Schrier, director of advocacy at Freedom House, notes that the resolution that calls on countries to create legal mechanisms to prevent “acts of hatred, discrimination, intimidation and coercion resulting from defamation of religions” is intended to prevent stereotyping, speech, and actions deemed degrading to all religions, although, as with past resolutions, it singles out only Islam and Muslims by name as targets of “an overall campaign of defamation of religions.”The resolution is the latest in a series of resolutions put forward by the Organisation of the Islamic Conference (OIC) that attempt to equate the right of an individual to hold and express certain beliefs with the right of a belief itself to be free from criticism. “These attempts are both misguided and dangerous. If we are to achieve greater understanding and tolerance among all faiths, no topics can be deemed off limits for discussion,” she writes.
………………., the president of the Human Rights Council ruled that religion could not be discussed at the Council following repeated objections by Egypt to an intervention criticising the stoning to death of women accused of adultery and of girls being married at the age of nine in certain countries where Sharia law applies. The passage of anti-defamation laws are also used to justify limits on free expression within countries, where individuals are arrested or persecuted for criticising and even questioning views, particularly those commonly accepted by the population of the religious majority. In Egypt, bloggers are arrested for posting criticisms of Islam. In Pakistan, defiling Islam is punishable by death and insulting another’s religious feelings can result in a ten-year prison sentence. In Saudi Arabia, all Saudis are required by law to be Muslim, Freedom House points out.
Stop sanctioning, aiding all countries that is ruled by religion. Force religion based countries abandon its religious base of law and administration. I hope at least humankind would feel comfort in any country. They would never feel threat.
China and former Soviet Union nations (especially Russia). Prior to Communist takeovers of these regions and government attempts to eradicate religion, both places had very high levels of affiliation with organized religions (especially Islam, Christianity, Buddhism and Taoism), as well as high levels of participation in and belief in traditional local traditions such as shamanism, ancestor ceremonies, spiritism, etc. Since the fall of Communism in former Soviet nations and the relaxation of anti-religious policies in China, observed religious affiliation and activity has increased dramatically, especially in Christianity, Buddhism, and Islam.
Can you imagine a man’s life who belong to other religion in a Islamic country, Do United Nation watch? Do activists in human right watch? No .
He was not like Jesus, who on the crossed begged forgiveness for his hostile people and enemy.
At present an estimated more than 1.2 billion followers of Islam (about 20 percent of the world's population). is today's fastest growing religion. By 2025 or earlier, Islam will overtake Christianity as the world's largest religion. This is due to conversion (in mainly non-Muslim countries) and also the population growth in Muslim countries.
Many Muslims (and some non-Muslim) observers claim that there are more practicing Muslims than practicing Christians in the world. It is a cult.
Comparative chart - number of Muslims to Christians:
- -------Christian ---Muslim
1900 world population -26.9% ----12.4%
1980 world population -30% ------16.5%
2000 world population --29.9%---- 19.2%
2025 world population (PROJECTED) 25% ---30%
Christian and other religions are drooping in number.
At present Those embraced Christianity are most civilized than people of other religion, and the west prospered.
In China today,With prayers banned in public areas, private hajj trips not allowed, teaching of the Noble Qur'an not allowed in private and students and government officials forced to eat during Ramadan, China in enforcing laws and regulations restricting the practice of Islam.
Chinese authorities have enforced laws restricting the ability of Muslims in the northwestern region of Xinjiang from practicing their faith.
Prayers in public areas outside the mosque is forbidden and residents are banned from worshipping at mosques outside their town. Under the rules, imams are banned from teaching the Qur'an in private and only official versions of the Qur'an are allowed. a government regulation that bans Islamic education for anyone under the age of 18.
Studying Arabic is only allowed at special government schools. Government workers are banned from showing the slightest sign of religious devotion.
For example, a Muslim civil servant could be sacked for donning hijab.
They began posting regulations mandating women not to wear hijab and men to shave their beards. Atheist China recognizes five religions — Islam, Protestantism, Catholicism, Taoism and Buddhism — and tightly regulates their administration and practice. Official Hajj Under the rules, two of Islam's five pillars – the Ramadan fasting and hajj – are strictly controlled. China has also revived a law prohibiting Muslims from arranging their own trips to Saudi Arabia to perform hajj.
Signs painted on mud-brick walls in the winding alleyways of old Kashgar warn against making "illegal" hajj. To get a passport to go on an official hajj or a business trip, applicants must leave a deposit of nearly $6,000.
A religion is at the root of the terrorism that we witness across the world today. All Religions originate from a psychiatric paranoia, based on a misunderstanding of the unknown universe as a god. This paranoia becomes a threat to civilization when a religion insists that everyone should accept that, the way in which this religion misunderstands the unknown universe as a god, is the ONLY right way (to misunderstand the universe!).

We have long seen Islamic terrorism throughoutthe world except china,
China: Officials say Uyghur group involved in Olympic terror plot http://www.unhcr.org/refworld/country,,RFERL,,CHN,,4804c317c,0.html
Officials in Beijing say they have broken up plots by two terrorist groups, including the Islamic Movement of East Turkestan, a banned Uyghur organization, to stage attacks during the Olympic Games in August.
Every country has the right to take precaution against its threat and security. In this respect China is only answer for the rest of the world.
I have seen it is one way traffick in India. The islamic terrorists are hiting us, all over the globe, and the whole world quietly observing its prowess. To india it’s a proxywar by Pakistan, because they failed to control and keep East Pakistan ( now BanglaDesh). They had started proxywar in punjab as khalistan, but failed because India is not a sick country . They are doing it in the name of kashmir, and occupied a part. Now they are doing gurilla war as terrorism. They are doing this proxi war in west because of the involvement of West in Middle East and South Asia.
Their aggressive nature, ignorance and illiteracy, religion and teaching and fast growing population if are not curbed, controled and thwarted, the future is bleak for rest of the world.
