A Dangerous Notion?: Islamophobia ‘needs swift action’, says Dr Chris Allen at Cardiff University lecture

quran 8-12 Capture

It is attitudes like those of Dr. Chris Allen , who gave a lecture on ‘Islamophobia’ at Cardiff University, that are misguided and as dangerous as Islam itself.

Firstly a ‘phobia’ is an irrational fear. There is nothing irrational about being mindful of an ideology that is avowed to killing the ‘unbelievers’.

He has obviously not read the Qur’an!

Allah is an enemy to unbelievers. – Sura 2:98

On unbelievers is the curse of Allah. – Sura 2:161

Slay them wherever ye find them and drive them out of the places whence they drove you out, for persecution is worse than slaughter. – 2:191

Fight against them until idolatry is no more and Allah’s religion reigns supreme. (different translation: ) Fight them until there is no persecution and the religion is God’s entirely. – Sura 2:193 and 8:39

Fighting is obligatory for you, much as you dislike it. – 2:216
(different translation: ) Prescribed for you is fighting, though it is hateful to you.

….. martyrs…. Enter heaven – Surah 3:140-43


Dr Allen

Dr Chris Allen delivered his lecture at Cardiff University on Tuesday evening March 3rd 2015

Swift action is needed to tackle hatred of Muslims, an expert on Islamophobia has told a Cardiff audience.

Dr Chris Allen said the need to act with “speed, clarity, commitment and impartiality” was long overdue.

He added that publicity surrounding events like the three Cardiff men fighting in Syria and Iraq can lead to attacks on Muslims.

Dr Allen was speaking at the annual human rights lecture by the Equality and Human Rights Commission Wales.

The University of Birmingham lecturer told the audience at Cardiff University that Islamophobia is “unwanted in today’s Europe” and “the sooner we collectively tackle it, the better”.

More than 100 people attended the lecture, which also focused on examples from across the UK where there has been hostility to Muslim people and hate crime.

I suspect that the majority of those attending the lecture were mainly Muslims and left wing ‘tree hugger’ muslim apologists!
