A country that is struggling to rein in their growing Muslim population has recently implemented some mandatory changes to crack down on Islamic terror and devout jihad in a way that some might find “extreme,” but the world should follow their lead.
Since the 1994 election of President Emomali Rahmon, Tajikistan’s government has made a massive effort to drive out devotion to Allah and the jihad, subjugation, persecution, and oppression that comes with it — and some might say it’s working.
The Times of India reports that federal police were dispatched to personally shave nearly 13,000 Muslim men’s beards, a symbol of their religious dedication to Islam. The central Asian country forced men to line up for a quick shave, and it’s assumed that many more will come forward before the policy is completed.
However, this required grooming wasn’t the only measure the Muslim-majority’s leadership put in place. In fact, to prevent the influence of barbaric Islamic customs from neighboring Afghanistan and Pakistan, the country has been fighting Muslim culture with several controversial ordinances within the last year, according to Mad World News and MSN.
- Last week, the parliament officially passed legislation to ban Arabic-sounding names, encouraging citizens to give their children Asian names instead.
- In the same week, the country outlawed legal marriages between first cousins, a huge social and religious move, since around half of all marriages between Muslims are first cousins.
- Last year, Islamic beards were banned, although only recently have they begun to crack down on offenders.
- The government is pressuring women to relinquish hijabs, labeling wearers “prostitutes.” Law enforcement has successfully convinced over 1,700 women and girls to leave behind the oppressive, misogynistic custom.
- Restaurants are forced to serve alcohol and cannot legally display “no alcohol” signs, arguing that such a policy violates the rights of alcohol drinkers.
- Hajj, the yearly pilgrimage to Mecca, has been outlawed for Muslims under the age of 35 to prevent young people from being religiously influenced by such a dangerously devout Muslim country.
- Authorities have closed independent mosques and are encouraging imams to refrain from sermons that uplift Sharia law over the country’s governance.
- To ensure a more secular, freer republic, the Supreme Court banned the country’s only registered Islamic political party for encouraging violence and sedition.
While most Muslims around the world will stop at nothing to destroy all man-made governments and implement strict Sharia law, Tajikistan teeters on the border of freedom and religiosity, and it remains dependent upon Russia, regardless of their legal independence.
Tajikistan is a prime example of how dangerous Islam is to Muslims themselves. Although the population is 98 percent Muslim, their government is a struggling, young republic that gained independence after the Soviet Union fell. Now, they’ve realized that if they do not wish to transform into yet another 7th-century, Islamic wasteland, they must physically deter their majority from becoming devout Islamists.
Although many Muslims and ignorant apologists will cry foul about the compulsory legislation that widely targets Islamists, they fail to acknowledge that without it, Muslims absolutely cannot coexist with non-Muslims or even each other for that matter. Islam is such a tyrannical, oppressive religion that its violent and compulsory commands must be restricted, lest others fall victim to its requirements.
It is ignorant to think all cultures and religions are equal and must therefore be given respect, legitimacy, and a place to practice. What place would a cannibalistic, warring, human-sacrificing tribe’s culture have in a country governed by democracy, personal freedom, and equality? Why then should Islam — the religious example of a man who had sex with a child, beheaded unbelievers, took their wives as sex slaves, and modeled that the world should be forced through violence and manipulation into obeying Sharia and worshiping Allah — be tolerated by a culture that boasts that all have the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness?
