Principles of Islamo-Fascism

Principles of Pakistani Islamo-Fascism
Content analysis of sacred texts reveals the machinations of power-hungry elites
The six kalimas constitute an Islamic credo. Only South Asian Moslems follow this tradition. Although the practice is undoubtedly widespread among Moslems in India and Bangladesh as well as Pakistan, for simplicity’s sake we shall write as if it were a purely Pakistani phenomenon.
Recitation of the kalimas, the Qur’an and other sacred writings is done only in Arabic, although hardly any Pakistanis know Arabic. Nonetheless their Arabic pronunciation is perfect.
In general terms classical Arabic remains the only liturgical language of islam, in which all prayers, credos, etc. must be uttered. Similarly the Catholic Church used mostly Latin until the Second Vatican Council (1962-1965) switched to local vernaculars.
I don't know to what extent Moslem Pakistanis understand the formulae they recite. But even if they do not understand the individual words, it seems safe to assume that this brief selection of texts (totaling only 300 words):
1. is a representative and accurate reflection of prevailing Moslem ideology in Pakistan, and
2. does not differ significantly in content from the religious instruction Pakistani Moslems receive in their respective native tongues (i.e. Urdu, Pashto, Punjabi, etc.).
I decided to make a quantitative analysis of the contents of thekalimas, by breaking them up into their smallest meaningful units, then classifying the units by subject matter and counting which subjects are most often mentioned. I thought the outcome likely to reflect the relative importance of different issues in the Islam of Pakistan.
I classified each identifiable statement into the following categories. The categories are arranged in descending order of frequency, so the most frequent memes are at the top:[1]
Six Kalimas meme frequency
Subject matter
# of hits

1 Allah and his attributes

 1.1 Allah’s uniqueness

 1.2 Allah’s majesty

 1.3 Allah’s mercy

 1.4 Allah’s power

 1.5 Allah’s omniscience

 1.6 Allah’s goodness

2 Sins

3 Prophethood

4 Submission


Of a total of 43 items, 33 address solely matters of dogma. Allah's uniqueness (11 hits) and His majesty (10 hits) make up fully half of the credo. Then there are nine references to Allah’s other divine attributes, to wit Allah’s mercy, His power, His omniscience and His goodness.
Next in quantitative order come the sins, but the chronology of the kalimas reveals that the sins are of secondary importance, since they were all included as a group in the sixth and last kalima -- which was added long after the other five, apparently as an afterthought. So I too will deal with them as an afterthought.
Next in frequency, with three hits, comes that old favorite of Islam fans, to wit that Mohammed is Allah’s messenger. This is also purely dogmatic and has no practical effects on people’s behavior.
And finally with 2 hits, submission (which is what “Islam” means in Arabic). The call to submission is not likely to elicit any particular behavior by the faithful, but merely increases their commitment to the cause.
When arranged in order of frequency, the narrative conveyed by the kalimas is the following:
1          Our deity is unique and has no rivals. Therefore he is the only true god.
2         Our deity is majestic and glorious. Therefore he is worthy of being worshipped.
3         Our deity is merciful. Your chances of making it into Paradise are rosy.[2]
4        Mohammed is Allah’s messenger. [This slogan is a linchpin of Islamic dogma that is often repeated].  
5         Submission is the desired attitude expected as a result of all that chest-thumping at the beginning.
Up to now, of the 43 items, fully 35 (81%) consist of invocations of power, splendor and authority. Their function is merely to impress the initiate and compel his allegiance and devotion to the religious institution.
Among other things Moslems are succinctly informed that they only have duties toward Allah, but none toward their fellow human beings.
Once the novices are properly motivated, we get to the moral principles, i.e. what they’re actually supposed to DO. As a matter of fact, islam being an Abrahamic job and all, the way it’s actually formulated in various scriptures is what y0u’re NOT supposed to do, “sins” for short.
However when we finally get to the sins -- added on as an afterthought -- they make up a bewildering assortment.
List of sins
Polytheism is the only prohibition in the original canon of 5 kalimas. Ergo polytheism is the gravest crime.
The sixth and last kalima forbids ignorance, polytheism again, falsehood, slandering, innovation in religion, tell-tales, evil deeds, blame and disobedience.
The meanings of these terms must be sought in Islamic tradition. They are by no means straightforward. Often English words used to translate Islamic concepts don’t quite fit.[3]
It is clear from the very beginning that 7 of the 9 items listed (i.e. ignorance,[4] polytheism, disbelief, falsehood, slandering, telling tales and innovation in religion) are prohibitions against acts of speaking and believing.
Old favorites like theft, murder, rape, etc. are missing. That does not necessarily imply that islam approves of them, merely that they didn’t make the cut, especially when competing with the Big Enchilada, namely polytheism. It is interesting to note that the 6th kalima bans gossip but not murder.
“Innovation in religion” [Arabic bid’a] is one of Mohammedanism’s gravest crimes. Forbidding bid’a could be aptly called the “Islamic suicide pact”, since obstinate adherence to this quaint dogma will inexorably trigger Islam’s extinction.
"Evil deeds” is a stumper.
“Blame” is enigmatic.
“Disobedience” almost certainly refers to disobedience to Allah and His earthly representatives.
These observations suffice to make a preliminary finding.
There is pervasive mention of the powerless individual’s subjection to the unlimited power of a glorious and eternal being.
The psychological approach employed is to intimidate the believer, playing on fears of fate and the unknown. It addresses each human individually, isolated, with no support from others. It does not encourage people to think for themselves, which Immanuel Kant called the quintessence of the Enlightenment.[5] It sets the stage for authoritarian hierarchies and harsh rules.
Only 19% of the kalimas’ content is devoted to giving people advice on avoiding sin, i.e. living virtuously. The exact meaning of some of the sins listed is unclear and must be determined at a later stage. But by one route or another, forbidding most of the sins listed can easily be construed as a technique of ideological and political control. There is no injunction to Moslems to be forgiving or merciful. [6]
Consequently, on the whole the virtues stressed are dubious at best.
How about the other 81% of the kalimas’ content?
It is truly astonishing to find that fully 4/5ths of the most important messages propagated by islam in Pakistan are aimed at preserving and strengthening the religion itself and the power of its leaders. Absolute devotion to the faith is the only virtue mentioned as such.
Accordingly on the basis of this selection of texts, we must conclude that islam is a sect mainly preoccupied with maintaining its own ideological hegemony and institutional stability, and only marginally interested in maintaining social harmony, instilling a sense of justice and preventing antisocial behavior.
This preliminary finding supports Andrew Bostom’s assessment:



[1] A few items could have been included in more than one category, but I refrained from doing so to keep things easy to track.
[2] Other qualities we have come to expect of supreme deities: Allah´s power and wisdom are somewhat understated. That would tend to give religious leaders a free hand in making decisions.
[3] For example the English word “charity” is often used as an equivalent of the Qur’anic term zakat But there is a difference. One of the eight groups of people deserving assistance from zakat revenue is:  “7. Those fighting for a religious cause or a cause of God or for Jihad in the way of Allah and for Islamic warriors who fight against the unbelievers [that’s us] but are not ... salaried soldiers.” [wiki]
This definition neatly fits terror organizations like Hamas, Hizballa, Al Qaeda, the Islamic State, etc. Consequently the term zakat could better be translated as “Charity & Terrorism”.
[4] This is not your standard-issue ignorance. Jahaliyya is the ignorance that enveloped the world before the arrival of Islam, or so they say.
[5] Immanuel Kant: What is Enlightenment?
[6] The traditional formula “Allah, the merciful and compassionate” [Allaah ar-rahmaan w'ar-raheem] describes Allah by means of two adjectives that are virtual synonyms. According to doctrine, the difference between rahmaan and raheem is the following: rahmaan is an attribute of Allah alone and cannot be used to describe human beings, whereas people can be raheem. However the virtue of being raheem is seldom mentioned in the Qur’an.
