The theocratic Islamist campaign to convince UK Muslims that “VOTING FOR MAN-MADE LAW IS SHIRK” has popped up in Leicester, the BBC reports.
Bright yellow stickers have been posted in areas of Leicester with large Muslim communities saying voting is “shirk”.
Shirk is the sin of worshipping someone other than Allah and is considered the most grievous crime for a Muslim.
Which just goes to show how anti-human and revolting religion can be at its worst. The most grievous crime, ahead of murder, rape, genocide, torture. Plus of course there’s the fact that voting for X≠worshipping X.
Dr [Ather] Hussain, an imam in Leicester and surrounding cities, said: “It’s laughable. Logically and religiously speaking they haven’t got a leg to stand on.
“I fail to see how voting would be considered as the most grievous crime possible for a Muslim to commit.
“The argument is shallow, baseless and it has absolutely no standing religiously or theologically in our religion.”
And he added that those who posted the signs probably did not believe it themselves.
“If they had a sound argument perhaps they would operate in mosques and in the right public spaces.
“But quite cowardly, all they have done is put stickers all over the place without any context, without telling us who they are, without giving us any indication about where we can find more about these ridiculous beliefs.”
It’s a sort of graffiti. But, unfortunately, it’s a sort that some people will find impressive and convincing.
