Murdering Iranian converts

Ever since the mosque in New York became a hot-button issue, I have been thinking about another such issue back in the Middle East.

I don’t think any fair minded person would object to the following statement. The building of any house of worship where there are no local zoning restrictions should not be a concern of anyone but the adherents of that brand of religion which care to build it.  

By the same token this statement should apply at micro-level as well. That is, as a vessel, at its most basic level, the human body of the individual adherent is his/her mosque, church, temple, synagogue or what have you.

My question:

Why in some countries, including Iran, individual people who have chosen to vacate their old and erect a new house of worship within their own self are murdered by the state?

Right now many Iranians are waiting to be hanged for the crime of vacating their old Islamic house of worship and building a new Christian one within their own self.

Everyone has the right to freedom of religion..

by Mona 19 on

... according to Quran,and this my humble opinion.

[2:256] There shall be no compulsion in religion

[4:25] GOD knows best about your belief, and you are equal to one another, as far as belief is concerned

[109:2-6]I do not worship what you worship, nor do you worship what I worship...To you be your religion, and to me be mine

***

The Quran recognizes that there are more than one path to God, so forcing others to accept Islam is not what Prophet Muhammad asked Muslims to follow .

[2:62] Surely, those who believe, those who are Jewish, the Christians,
and the converts; anyone who (1) believes in GOD, and (2) believes in
the Last Day, and (3) leads a righteous life, will receive their
recompense from their Lord. They have nothing to fear, nor will they
grieve.

*** 

And we are each free to choose our own associations and paths in life.

[2:148] Each of you chooses the direction to follow; you shall race
towards righteousness. Wherever you may be, GOD will summon you all. God is omnipotent.


Thank you Fred

Most regards,Mona

More half-truths from the

More half-truths from the Israelis at "Fred."

You're referring to the Park 51 Muslim community center in New York. Again, you people at "Fred," being Israeli, and insisting on jewish majority rule in the Palestinian territory at the end of a gun barrel, who are you people to bring up issues of religious tolerance in America?

I keep telling you Israelis, American issues and perspectives shouldn't be discussed within the context of foreigners like yourselves, whose only intent here at IC is to fan anti-Iran sentiment among this mostly Iranian-American audience.

And Mahmoud (nice name, fella), you being an encourager of these Israelis, speaks volumes on the whys and hows of your rejection from Iran.

You are gonna get slack from Regim apologists and "single celled brain" supporters of IRI, some time soon i suppose.  But you are so correct.  Whey when we want to cleanse our own edifice, we have to answer to the State and the big brother, well in the case of the IRI, the hairy Seyed Ali Gheda Cholagh.  Answer is simple, releigion knows it cannot answer all questions but does not want to relinquish power either.  How the middle ages are being played out in Iran.  But their is a Renaissance in the horizon.  iranians will be allowed to cleanse themselevs and erect new hopes within their soles aside from that of Islam.
