One of the Biggest Muslim Orgs in North America Recommends Fighting Crime by Chopping Off Hands

What could it hurt? We keep being told that Sharia Law is so great. Why not give it a whirl followed by a prolonged scream and lots of bleeding?
The Muslim Council of Calgary (MCC) is one of the the biggest and most successful Muslim organizations on North America.
On its official website the MCC posted the booklet “Answers to Non-Muslims – Common Questions About Islam” authored by Dr. Zakir Abdul Karim Naik, who is well known of his radical positions.
On one occasion he sympathized with Al Qaeda by saying: “If [Osama bin Laden] is fighting the enemies of Islam, I am for him … If he is terrorizing a terrorist, if he is terrorizing America the terrorist, the biggest terrorist, I am with him.”
This is exactly the man who should be explaining Islam to non-Muslims.
Dr. Naik, an Indian medical doctor who founded the Mumbai-based of Peace TV, said that “every Muslim should be a terrorist” and described the Jews as are “our staunchest enemy”. He also recommended capital punishment for homosexuals and the death penalty for those who abandon Islam as their faith.
Truly a Religion of Peace TV.
In his booklet, which is being posted on MCC’s website, Dr. Naik condones the implementation of the Islamic Law (Sharia) as the best way to reduce the crime rate. Here are excerpts of his booklet dealing with this issue:
“Chopping off the hands as punishment for robbery”
“Islam prescribes chopping off the hands of the convicted robber. The Glorious Qur’an says in Surah Maidah:
“As to the thief, male or female, cut off his or her hands:a punishment by way of example, from Allah, for their crime: and Allah is Exalted in power, full of wisdom.” [ Al-Qur’an 5:38]
The non-Muslim may say, “Chopping off the hands in this 20th century. Islam is a barbaric and ruthless religion!”
“Results achieved when Islamic Shariah Implemented”
“America is supposed to be one of the most advanced countries in the world. Unfortunately it also has one of the highest rates of crime, theft, and robbery.
Suppose the Islamic shariah is implemented in America i.e. every rich person gives Zakat ( 2.5% of his savings in charity above 85 grams of gold every lunar year), and every convicted robber has his or her hands chopped off as a punishment. Will the rate of theft and robbery in America increase, remain same or decrease? Naturally it will decrease. Moreover the existence of such a stringent law would discourage many a potential robber.”
As proof, you can go to any Muslim country and you will not be robbed. Crime doesn’t exist there. Neither does poverty. If America implements Islamic law, we too could enjoy the social harmony and crime-free environment of Pakistan or Somalia.
