Muslims set Bible ablaze


MULTAN, Pakistan – The burning of a Bible and other religious texts by four Muslim men in the Tibba Shomali area of Multan district in Pakistan has prompted more than 1,500 Christians to stage a protest.

Four men were caught Tuesday evening while burning the Bible, calendars depicting Jesus Christ and other Christian booklets, reports the Pakistan-based Daily Times.

“We caught four people – Hafiz Islam, Hafiz Abid, Rana Abdul Ghaffar and Rana Abdul Jabbar – burning our sacred books and literature on a heap of garbage on Tuesday evening," Pakistan Christian Writers Guild President AD Sahil said, according to the Pakistan paper.

Local council member Nazim Ch Shamoon Kaiser told the Daily Times: "Two chapters of the Bible, calendars carrying portraits of Jesus Christ and booklets containing religious literature were reduced to ashes."

The councilor said a group of enraged Christian tried to attack the accused but town elders intervened to save their lives.

A former district councilor, the Daily Times said, condemned the incident but asked local Christians not to take the law into their hands.

A local Christian minister, Nathaniel Barkat, whose Protestant church was attacked by a group of unidentified people March 30, appealed to police Sunday to provide security to Christian residents of the area. The are still at large.

Along with the burning incident, five churches have been attacked in Pakistan within two months, challenging the recent claim by government official Raja Basharat, who contends there is complete harmony between Muslims and Christians in Punjab province.

Wrong. Muslims believe in the same Judaic God. They believe that Jesus and Abraham (and others) were prophets of God. They don't believe Jesus was a deity (like the Jews) and they believe Mohammad was God's last prophet and that the Qur'an is the word of God.

Please "splain" to me the difference? In the Koran Moses, Jesus are prophets same as Mohamed. I always thought that it was the same God just a different messenger that was the basic difference. I do know that Islam developed a following many hundreds of years after Christianity was established. Inquiring minds want to know!

And here I thought you Christians understood the difference between yourselves and other religions:

"Muslims believe that God (or, in Arabic, Allāh; also in Aramaic Alaha) revealed his direct word for humanity to Muhammad (c. 570–632) and earlier prophets, including Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses, and Jesus. Muslims believe that Muhammad is the Last, or the Seal, of the prophets and that his teachings for humanity will last until Qiyamah (The Day of the Resurrection). Muslims assert that the main written record of revelation to humanity is the Qur'an (see below), which they believe to be flawless, immutable, and the final revelation of God to humanity. Muslims believe that parts of the Gospels, Torah and Jewish prophetic books have been forgotten, misinterpreted, incorrectly edited by humans, or distorted by their followers and thus their original message has been corrupted over time (tahrif). With that perspective, Muslims view the Qur'an as a correction of Jewish and Christian scriptures, and a final revelation.

Muslims hold that Islam is essentially the same belief as that of all the messengers sent by God to humanity since Adam, with the Qur'an (the text used by all sects of the Muslim faith) codifying the final revelation of God. Islamic texts depict Judaism and Christianity as derivations of the teachings of Abraham and thus acknowledge common Abrahamic roots. The Qur'an calls Jews and Christians (and sometimes people of other faiths) "People of the Book." Historically, the second Caliph Umar ibn Khattab created what came to be known as "the Pact of Umar" in establishing that any people of the book who submitted to Muslim authority as dhimmis during the wars of Muslim expansion retained their freedom of religion and their existing churches."

All mankind is from Adam and Eve, an Arab has no superiority over a non-Arab nor a non-Arab has any superiority over an Arab; also a white has no superiority over a black nor a black has any superiority over a white — except by piety and good action. Learn that every Muslim is a brother to every Muslim and that the Muslims constitute one brotherhood. Nothing shall be legitimate to a Muslim which belongs to a fellow Muslim unless it was given freely and willingly. Do not therefore do injustice to yourselves. Remember one day you will meet Allah and answer your deeds. So beware: Do not stray from the path of righteousness after I am gone.”
-Mohammad

No, not at all.

The New Testament was written to reveal Jesus as the Messiah.

And I don't really care what is in the Koran.


The name of Jesus does not appear in the Christian "Old Testament" or in the Torah.


Of course not. Jesus had not been revealed as the Messiah in the Old Testament.

However, the Old Testament is just full of prophsies about His coming.

I realize that you do not believe in Jesus. There is no reason for us to argue about that.

But surely you do not believe that God and Allah are the "same".

I don't know, from what I have learned about islam...I just don't see allah being the same as God, despite what muslims say....

And regardless of whether that actually is true or not...they sure as shit don't act like they believe in the same God.....

One could argue that they are the same "deity" and one could argue that they aren't. The Jews and Muslims come from the same group of people. At one time, they were the same religion. After Abraham, they split. The 12 tribes of Israel become the Jews, those who weren't included became the Palestinians and eventually, after Mohammed, the Islamists. If you go back far enough, both religions worship the same god. After a couple thousand years, translation, separation, oppression and many, many other variables have differentiated the two religions greatly and now God and Allah appear to be two completely different deities. Most Muslims believe in Jesus and that he was a powerful prophet, just that Mohammed was even more powerful and led the arabic people more directly.

Edit for spelling.

From the March 28 Asia Times- read it all at the link (the blue text).

Emphasis is obviously added.


The tragedy of Abdul Rahman also is the tragedy of Western religion. Islam differs radically from Christianity, in that the Christian god is a lover who demands love in return, whereas the Muslim god is a sovereign who demands the fulfillment of duty. Christian prayer is communion, an act of love incomprehensible to Muslims; Muslim worship is an act of submission, the repetition of a few lines of text to accompany physical expression of self-subjugation to the sovereign. The People of Christ are pilgrims en route to the next world; the People of Allah are soldiers in this one. Contrary to all the ink spilled and trees murdered to produce the tomes of Karen Armstrong and John Esposito, Christianity and Islam call forth different peoples to serve different gods for different reasons.

So what. My God is not the God of Islam and he doesn't need men to meet out his vengence. They will answer to him not me.

The Koran says "produce one chapter like it" Well God and Jesus appeared to a young man in 1820. They never mentioned Allah, and gave the man a book that told more about Jesus. Another witness of Jesus Christ. The boy was a prophet and superceeded Muhamad. He left a line of prophets to this day. This was to establish Christ's Church one last time. All Muslims must read the Book of Mormon now because the Koran put out the challenge and God answered. If the Koran is right then the book must be read by all Islam to determine it's truth.

The Book of Mormon never mentioned Muhamad so I guess Islam is not a true religion. Book to book there is much more in the Book of Mormon relating to mans purpose and the purpose of Christ and living a good life than the Koran can come close to. It also proves the Bible true in claiming the divinity of Jesus. Old testament, New Testament, Book of Mormon and latter day revelation trump your Koran.
