Islam only permits killing those who are "Mufsideen fil arz"(those who create unrest in the land). Currently the unrest creators are the owners of religious doctrine in pakistan. Untill and unless pakistanis try to understand the religion from a logical point of view and understand that its a code of life and other people could choose a different code of life and its normal.
Religion is a tool to facilitate our communication with other people and with God. I could believe in 1 God and someone else can believe in 7 Gods. As long we dont harm other people and let them believe what they want to believe, our society will be a peaceful society. Quaid was a liberal and he wanted an islamic pakistan where people accept religion by choice and not by force and that exactly was the motto of prophet(PBUH) and followers like Muhammed Bin Qasim, Tariq Bin ziad, salahuddin ayubi.
Please tell me what the Hadith (Sahih Muslim and Sahih Bukhari) have to say when it comes to apostasy in Islam?
Are any of these being tolerant of those who choose not to believe anymore?
Sahih Bukhari, Volume 4, Book 52, Number 260:
Ali burnt some people and this news reached Ibn 'Abbas, who said, "Had I been in his place I would not have burnt them, as the Prophet said, 'Don't punish (anybody) with Allah's Punishment.' No doubt, I would have killed them, for the Prophet said, 'If somebody (a Muslim) discards his religion, kill him.' "
Narrated 'Abdullah: Allah's Apostle said, "The blood of a Muslim who confesses that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah and that I am His Apostle, cannot be shed except in three cases: In Qisas for murder, a married person who commits illegal sexual intercourse and the one who reverts from Islam (apostate) and leaves the Muslims."
Sahih Bukhari, Volume 9, Book 83, Number 17
Narrated Abu Burda:Abu Musa said, "I came to the Prophet along with two men (from the tribe) of Ash'ariyin, one on my right and the other on my left, while Allah's Apostle was brushing his teeth (with a Siwak), and both men asked him for some employment. The Prophet said, 'O Abu Musa (O 'Abdullah bin Qais!).' I said, 'By Him Who sent you with the Truth, these two men did not tell me what was in their hearts and I did not feel (realize) that they were seeking employment.' As if I were looking now at his Siwak being drawn to a corner under his lips, and he said, 'We never (or, we do not) appoint for our affairs anyone who seeks to be employed. But O Abu Musa! (or 'Abdullah bin Qais!) Go to Yemen.'" The Prophet then sent Mu'adh bin Jabal after him and when Mu'adh reached him, he spread out a cushion for him and requested him to get down (and sit on the cushion). Behold: There was a fettered man beside Abu Muisa. Mu'adh asked, "Who is this (man)?" Abu Muisa said, "He was a Jew and became a Muslim and then reverted back to Judaism." Then Abu Muisa requested Mu'adh to sit down but Mu'adh said, "I will not sit down till he has been killed. This is the judgment of Allah and His Apostle (for such cases) and repeated it thrice. Then Abu Musa ordered that the man be killed, and he was killed. Abu Musa added, "Then we discussed the night prayers and one of us said, 'I pray and sleep, and I hope that Allah will reward me for my sleep as well as for my prayers.'"
Sahih Bukhari, Volume 9, Book 84, Number 58:
Narrated Abu Musa:
A man embraced Islam and then reverted back to Judaism. Mu'adh bin Jabal came and saw the man with Abu Musa. Mu'adh asked, "What is wrong with this (man)?" Abu Musa replied, "He embraced Islam and then reverted back to Judaism." Mu'adh said, "I will not sit down unless you kill him (as it is) the verdict of Allah and His Apostle."
Volume 9, Book 89, Number 271:
Let me guess..
they're all unverified, unauthenticated, and not true Hadith?
