The Chisel Policy
 

 

Islamic states of the Abode of Peace apply racism openly, in breach of the international conventions and in violation of the United Nations Charter. They deny the basic rights of the indigenous population and refuse to recognise their existence. They do not recognize them as native to their land and do not guarantee them natural rights as full citizens in the constitution. Ethnic communities in Islamic states of the Abode of Peace have been kowtowed to utter submission. While Muslims in non-Muslim countries engage in acts of open hostility to achieve secession from their host countries.

In Dar Al-Harb, (The Abode of War) Islamic communities depend on the rapid increase of their population through immigration and natural growth. They eventually need more elbowroom and demand more space to function comfortably. Contrary to other communities, they expand their area without integrating with the mainstream majority. No wonder that some Islamic businessmen do not contribute to their local council for public Christmas decorations of their commercial area zone. They consider it as an un-Islamic act. By doing so, they believe that their Islamic zone remains uncontaminated, free from non-Muslim religious landmarks.

Muslims cannot accommodate themselves comfortably under the secular constitution of the host country. Islam does not believe in dialogue. It considers secularism as the enemy of Islam. By allowing their members to accept and conform to secular laws, Islamic clergy lose authority on their community members. Secularism frees the individual, whether male of female, from certain outdated rules and traditions. The religious edict (fatwa), for instance, restricts a person in his options to choose the lifestyle he or she finds most agreeable, without fear of retribution by their elders. While under a secular constitutional system, the edict (fatwa) would lose its effect and become invalid in the Abode of War (Dar Al-Harb).
