  • Islam is a scary religion

    I grew up with an islamic grandparent. My grandparent would often tell me what is right and wrong. I was told because I'm female, I'm going to burn for infinity on the body parts that I don't cover up. Of course I never believed her. Growing up with her taught me a lot about the Islamic ideas and in my strong opinion, I disagree with a lot of what Islam preaches.

  • Kill the non-believer

    "The Quran contains at least 109 verses that call Muslims to war with nonbelievers for the sake of Islamic rule."

    To say "If it does, then so does Christianity," is an example of the tu quoque logical fallacy.

    To say that the it doesn't violate human rights because it is a religion or belief system, rather than actual actions is to me simply a matter of whether this question is defined well enough.

    Perhaps a better defined question would be "Does the Quran at any point call people to violate human rights, where one human right is the right to live?" in which case the answer is "Yes."

  • Islam is beyond reformation

    Islam has nothing to do with the so called "Golden Age of Islam", the "Kafirs" like Jews, Christians, Zoroastrians, Hindus, Buddhists and also the so called rationalist Muslims who are called "murtads" are the ones who contributed to the success of Abbasid Caliphates. Those Imams who are against rationalists were called devils. Many rationalists persecuted. The Catholic Church now live in a "Golden Rule" method. All other religions live by it. Islam is beyond reformation because once you attempt to reform it, you will be killed and destroying the very foundation of Islam.

  • Islam violates human rights for sure

    In Islam, you are forced to believe everything that it dictates and if you do not obey, you will be killed and supposedly 'burn in hell forever'. This breaches article 18 which says '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.'

    As well, as stated in another argument, it is believed that women 'are worth half as much as men'.

  • Yes they need a reform

    They do not know what freedom is. Christianity used to be that way until the new values ​​from the Enlightenment and secularism, they found that many of these teachings in the bible were immoral and incompatible with humanism. Uh.. They need a guy like John Locke in the middle east.

  • Quran violates Human Rights

    Men are created one step higher than women (Quran 2.228)
    Disbelievers (non-Muslims) are an open enemy to believers (Muslims) (Quran 4:101)
    Kill the disbelievers wherever we find them. Quran (2:191)
    Freedom of speech is prohibited and punishable by Quran
    Witness of 2 women equals Witness of 1 man (Quran 2.282)
    Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day ... " (Quran 9.29)

  • Islam is the only religion who protects the human rights

    It's too silly to judge on the Islamic acts in the past time without considering all the surrounding things. When the Islam came to say that there's no thing makes you better than the others except piety and there is no place for the color,gender,nation or any other things like these to be points in this assessment.When Islam came with this,there weren't any religion try do stop the racial discrimination. So, don't judge on the ways of Islam to stop these things by today's thoughts.

  • No, the Quran protects human rights - people's interpretation of it is messed up.

    Read this piece by Dr Riffat Hassan, he goes through each inalienable human right one by one :) Right to life, right to respect, right to justice, right to freedom, right to acquire knowledge, right to sustenance, right to work, right to privacy, right to protection from slander and more... He also writes on women in Islam (also good article)

  • If it does, then so does Christianity.

    Calling someone Muslim is like calling someone Christian. In both cases, the identity goes deeper than that, to identification with specific sects in those religious categories. Just like there are some branches of Christianity that are violent and piggish, there are some Islamic ones like that. But the majority of the world's Muslims, like the majority of the world's Christians, are peaceful and respectful.

  • No, Islam does not violate human rights.

    Allah does not charge a soul except [with that within] its capacity. It will have [the consequence of] what [good] it has gained, and it will bear [the consequence of] what [evil] it has earned. "Our Lord, do not impose blame upon us if we have forgotten or erred. Our Lord, and lay not upon us a burden like that which You laid upon those before us. Our Lord, and burden us not with that which we have no ability to bear. And pardon us; and forgive us; and have mercy upon us. You are our protector, so give us victory over the disbelieving people." Qur'aan 2:286

  • No, a religion cannot violate human rights

    It is one's right to believe in anything they want to. A religion cannot violate human rights, it is just a belief system. But, once a person tries to instill his/her religion on another person, or harms another being because of his/her religion, that is when it violates human rights. A religion cannot violate human rights, but a person who forces his beliefs on another can violate human rights

  • Islam as a religion does not violate human rights.

    While Islam as a religion does not violate human rights, radical Islamic governments often do. Islam's belief lies in a singular God, Allah, wherein all love should be devoted toward such a being. Islamics' sole purpose is to love and serve Allah, so while they serve him they are not violating humans' rights with their laws because all decisions come from Allah.
