Turkey’s Chief Justice: If that is Islam, I am no Muslim

Turkish Chief Justice Ha?im K?l?ç touched on the violence being perpetrated in Muslim countries and said, “If this is what is means to be a Muslim, then I am no Muslim.” The Chief Justice was attending a ceremony for the opening of the 2013-2014 academic year.

He said, “If we were to just analyze Muslim countries in particular, such as Pakistan, Afghanistan, or India, and even closer to home, Iraq, Iran, Syria, Egypt, Morocco, Tunisia and Algeria, they are all on fire. They are burning up. It is impossible to speak of human dignity in these places.

It was nearly 150 years ago that the founder of the Ahmadiyya Movement said that the acts of barbarism being committed in the name of Islam are in fact unIslamic. He wrote a book called “Jihad and the British Government”, in which he discussed in details what is the correct meaning of jihad. Similarly, restoring women’s rights, educating women, putting an end to calling each other heretics, freedom to choose and hold any religion without penalty or punishment and to preach and propagate it etc were all reforms he tried to introduce into Muslim thinking.

We are pleased to see that the Chief Justice of Turkey, a Sunni Muslim has now echoed the views of Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad. If Muslims had followed Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad all those years ago, Islam would now be the world’s dominant religion.

In many cases when someone wants to take a decision based on a principle people say that taking such a decision will drive away others. The Promised Messiah was told this when he declared Jesus had passed on and will not appear again. This section of the Holy Quran talks about the Holy Prophet’s (s) example. When faced with taking a decision based on principle was he swayed by the consideration that this will turn many people against Islam?
