“People who want Islamic laws can go to Syria, Somalia and Nigeria,” says Pakistan born Author Tarek Fatah

December 21, 2016: Tarek Fatah, an author, columnist and political commentator introduce himself as, “I am an Indian born in Pakistan, a Punjabi born in Islam; an immigrant in Canada with a Muslim consciousness, grounded in a Marxist youth. I am one of Salman Rushdie’s many Midnight’s Children: we were snatched from the cradle of a great civilization and made permanent refugees, sent in search of an oasis that turned out to be a mirage.”

He further added, “In a fight between Allah’s Islam and Mullah’s (fundamentalists) Islam, the former will win.”

In the recent years, as many Muslim women have approached the judiciary against triple talaq, the Supreme Court is hearing petitions against the practice. By joining Muslim organisations, including The All-India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB), Congress is accusing the government saying that they are trying to start an “internal war” by trying to change the personal laws of the community on divorce and polygamy.

“95% of Muslims of Deoband, Bareli,Patna, Bombay, Madras voted for Muslim League leader Mohammad Ali Jinnah for creation of Pakistan. They butchered this country (India) and stayed back to get Haj subsidy,” Tarek Fatah said.
