More relevant today than when it was written
on January 4, 2015
Ibn Warraq’s book has something to offend every theist. It is meticulously researched, and asks questions more relevant than when the book was written some 20 years ago.
While Warraq grapples for answers to the fatwa on Salman Rushdie, more horrific events in recent times have overtaken this issue.
Why are our leaders still scratching their heads and asking “why” Europe is fast becoming a large Islamic ghetto? Why are we questioning whether the Islamic State on a murderous rampage across the Middle East has anything to do with Islam? The answers are in this book.
My own interest in Islam was kindled 10 years ago when I narrowly missed becoming collateral damage in the jihad bombing of the Australian Embassy in Jakarta in September 2004. At the time I could not understand why the nice people amongst whom I had lived for more than a decade would do such a thing.
“Why I am not a Muslim” is the most detailed dissection of the scourge that is the Killer Cult. Warraq examines all aspects of Islam from origins to present day in painstaking detail. It is the most comprehensive book on the subject of Islam and the fate of the modern world that I have read.
It should be compulsory reading for every school student and political leader in the free world, before it is too late.
