There Goes My Rights...

Pinoy Atheist: So what will happen if the Philippines becomes an Islamic State? Will it endanger my basic human rights?

Muslim: No. Everything will be normal. No one will force you to be a Muslim. We respect your human rights.

Pinoy Atheist: Ah... OK. So is it true that when you leave Islam and changed to another religion, you will get the death penalty?

Muslim: Yes. According to sharia law, If you change religion, we will kill you.

There goes my basic human rights down the drain. 


["2171. Narrated 'Abdullah: The Prophet said, "The blood of a Muslim, who confesses that Lâ ilâha ill-Allâh (there is no god but Allâh), cannot be shed except in three cases: 1. Life for life (in cases of intentional murders without right i.e., in Al-Qis̩âs̩ – Law of Equality in punishment); 2. A married person who commits illegal sexual intercourse; and 3. The one who turns renegade from Islâm (apostate) and leaves the group of Muslims. [9:17-O.B]"

— Sahih al-Bukhari, 9:83:17 see also Sahih al-Bukhari, 4:52:260, Sahih al-Bukhari, 9:84:57 ]



Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes freedom to change his religion or belief, and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship and observance. ]
