Following our invitation to send in jokes for our inaugural Open Joke Competition we have received some criticism from readers who feel it is wrong for us to make Faisal Gazi’s family members the butt of our jokes.
1) Mr Gazi himself has publically declared:
This of course was during the Danish cartoons fiasco which greatly offended many Muslims
2) He also supported the offending of family members of the blessed family of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him):
“In the last third of the book in, Malik delves into the restrictions of free speech in the post-Rushdie world. As Hanif Qureishi puts it, “Nobody would have the balls today to write The Satanic Verses, let alone publish it. Writing now is timid because writers are terrified”. He is probably right when you consider the Muhammad cartoons scandal and Random House’s decision to retract the publication of Sherry Jones’ novel The Jewel of Medina, based on a message thread on an online discussion forum.
These are just two instances of how the grievance culture of radical Islam is winning the battle against Enlightenment values, helped along, Malik believes, by multicultural policy and laws like the Racial and Religious Hatred Act (2006), which has made it an offence to incite hatred against a person on grounds of their religion. Its aim was to protect the faith and dignity of minority communities. But the paradox is that these laws are now exploited to undermine the civil liberties of those very same communities they were meant to protect. The censorship that the anti-Rushdie protestors demanded is the same censorship of offensive thought that imprisoned the cartoon protestors”.
3) ‘But we never insult people’s family members’
That is the claim by the munafiq Faisal Gazi whenever his sites attacks on Muslims are challenged.Is it true? Well like much of what he says the answer is negative
See for example this comment , that was allowed to stand against a ‘heretical’ poster who
‘Your mother sucks Mirpuri taxi-driver cock for a living, Jamaati boy.’
4) Also Mr Gazi has in recent times come to the welcome conclusion that the killing of his khawarij relative was the right thing to do
