The ‘Religion of Peace': Christian Professor’s hand hacked off for ‘blasphemy’

There really are few words which can adequately describe the hatred that Mohammedanism is able to stir up among some of the ‘faithful’. One wonders if the Devil himself hates with more enthusiasm than some followers of the “Religion of Peace” are capable of.

Kerala, hand severed of Christian Professor accused of blasphemy

Ernakulam (AsiaNews) – A group of unknown assailants severed the hand and the right arm of a university professor accused of defaming Mohammed months ago. The execution took place yesterday morning in Muvattupuzha, Ernakulam district (Kerala). Sajan K George, president of the Global Council of Indian Christians condemns this “barbaric act” and recalls that “Sharia is not the law of India.”

Horrible and amazing, isn’t it, that even the “Archbishop of Canterbury” supports Sharia courts in the UK.

According to the police, Prof. TJ Joseph, was returning with his family from Sunday service when a group of people in a Maruti Omni van drew up beside him stopping him close to home. After forcing Joseph to get out of his car, they attacked him with knives and swords, then cut off his hand and right arm throwing them away after about 200 meters.

The professor was immediately transported to a hospital in Muvattupuzha and then to another specialized in surgery, where doctors are trying to mend his severed hand. The professor has also suffered deep wounds to his body and is in need of plastic surgery.

Joseph, Kerala, a professor at Newman’s College, Thodupuzha, is free on bail. Last March he had prepared a questionnaire for examinations in the private college and according to the Muslims had included questions offensive to Muhammad.

Even in Britain, a Muslim with a chip on her shoulder can ruin a hardworking family’s bed and breakfast business by claiming to have been “offended”. The couple from Liverpool, Ben and Sharon Vogelenzang, were thankfully cleared. Their ‘crime’ was to disagree “gently” about religion on their own property. Had they lost, and let’s face it, this has become one crazy country so they might have done, they would have faced a hefty fine and a criminal record. As it was, they are innocent, yet almost lost their business. Had some people had their way, they would probably have lost their hands as well.

“Try serving breakfast to your guests now, you infidel dogs!”

Due to a series of protests by Islamic groups, he was suspended from school. Later, Joseph publicly apologized for his “unintentional error”. Joseph’s mother said that in recent months her son continued to receive threats.

Was his “apology” seen as a sign of weakness?

Meanwhile, the police found the van of the attackers, empty, and “the vehicle registration number is false,” said police inspector P.P. Shams. Some of the detained are activists of the Popular Front of India, a right wing Muslim group, formerly called the National Development Front, which is very strong in Kerala.

Joseph’s sister, Mary Stella, says that “the assailants destroyed the window of our car and pulled out my brother to execute him. My poor mother, who was in the car with us, witnessed the crime”.

The Minister of Education, M.A. Baby has condemned the incident, expressing his displeasure because some have turned the issue of the exam questionnaire into a matter of religious conflict.

Sajan K. George, president of the Global Council of India (Gcoi), condemned the “barbaric act” and demands that “the attackers are brought to justice soon. I hope that – as usually happens – the complaint will not disappear in police records because of threats from Islamic militants in Kerala.”

Sajan K. George gives voice to the whole civil society which “expresses sorrow for these attacks by Muslims against Christians in Kerala. It should be noted that Islamic law is not the law of our country”.According to the Gcoi president Kerala is witnessing a growth of Islamic extremism: “Christian schools are often targeted on the headscarf issue or another issue and unfortunately many schools succumb under pressure. The design of these militants is to provoke peaceful Christian communities and provoke a civil war. The rapid growth of the Muslim population and their influence in elections is increasing safety concerns for Christians throughout the country”.

Here lie the problems. The majority are cowed into submission and hope that in doing so they will be left alone in future. Big, big mistake.

The attack against Joseph has been condemned by several Muslim organizations, including the Indian Union Muslim League (Iuml) and the Jama’at-e-Islami, which calls for a significant response against the culprits. Panakad Hyderali Shiyab Thangal, supreme leader of Iuml, has asked that the perpetrators be prosecuted harshly. And referring to the questionnaire compiled by Joseph, said: “An error can not be corrected by another mistake”.

Of course there are a greater number of so-called moderate Muslims, but the psychopathic ones are unlikely to heed their calls.

The indicted questionnaire however did not include anything that could be construed as against the Muslim religion. The authorities of Newman College, told AsiaNews that in the test, Prof. Joseph tells the story of a fishmonger who, despite hard work, becomes increasingly poor. The monger’s name is Mohammad In his desperation, he spoke to God and also asked his brother why his fortunes were dwindling. His brother told Mohammed:”Why are you calling God, God, God….” Students were asked to specify the punctuation of the narrative.

Islamists will find any excuse to exert their power over ‘infidels’ because they know that the real purpose of Islam is to take the world by force.

The contemptible fools in this country who kowtow to Islam are literally asking for a takeover of our country, whose customs and institutions are built from altogether different values. Those born-again militant “atheists” stirred up by the likes of Richard Dawkins, whose raison d’être is now to see people leave religion, are Hell-bent on reducing Christianity’s influence, while Islam is growing in strength. He is also a contemptible fool, unable to see the damage that his own militant religious activities are creating.

The people of this country have to make a decision. Do we want this:

In a BBC Radio Merseyside interview broadcast on Sunday, the couple said they pray for Ericka Tazi, the Muslim who made a complaint against them, and hold no bitterness towards her.

Or an unforgiving society full of violence and intolerance?

It is one or the other.

    Stewart – If you read Dr Sean Gabb’s book ‘Culture War’ which is downloadable from his website (just over 1 meg), he gives clear reasons why the political elite of this country have been deliberately favouring Moslems and other minority groups at the expense of the majority. You – like myself – may not agree with his libertarian views, but his analysis is incisive, and I endorse many of his remedies.

  2. Stewart Cowan says:


    Thank you for that. I have been on his website before, but I don’t think I read any of his book.

    Certainly, Moslems in particular have been imported to change our society. I look forward to reading what Dr Gabb says about it.

  3. English Viking says:

    It was the Christian thing to do to oppose the filthy ideologies which led to WWII. Oppose physically. Turning the other cheek, which in my opinion is grossly misunderstood by most Christians, was not an option. It is also not one now.

    Oppose this rot. Or they hang you. If you’re lucky.

    ‘No man escapes when freedom fails,
    the best of them rot in filthy jails,
    and those who cried,”appease appease”,
    are hanged by those they tried to please’.

  4. Stewart Cowan says:

    I agree English. You wouldn’t turn the other cheek if your wife was being raped, so why should we when it’s our country being raped?

  5. English Viking says:


    Mr Faulks, this is the third occasion we have met in recent days. Forgive a personal question won’t you (not too personal, I wouldn’t give away your details on screen if I am correct), but I’m pretty sure that I know you in the real world?

    Does High Street mean anything to you? If not, then it is merely a strange coincidence. If so, you know me as well, and you should be able to work it out from the screen-tag!

  6. Stewart Cowan says:


    The KKK are Christians are they?

    Now abortion. I don’t need to click on the link to know that some people have behaved appallingly and a very tiny few have proved they are not ‘pro life’ by murdering abortionists.

    On the other hand, in a country where 800,000 unborn are deprived of their right to life each year, and where some states have the death penalty for the ending of human life then doesn’t it depend upon how you define murder – and human life?

  7. Richard Borrett says:

    The KKK would, i believe call themselves christians (of a sort). And that is precisely my point, which you clearly fail to see.

  8. Stewart Cowan says:


    I took this to be your point, however these sort of people are clearly deluded and act contrary to the way they should according to their alleged faith, however the Islamists who want unopposed power over everyone else are actually following their faith.

    That’s the massive difference.

  9. Richard Borrett says:

    Since when were you an expert on Islamic theology? [The daily mail does not count as study.] There are a huge number of Muslims who would say the same about these people – and, further, there are many violent and dispicable acts which have (wrongly) been justified by reference to parts of the Bible too.

    See things form another view, for once.

  10. English Viking says:

    @ Richard Borrett,

    Since when were YOU an expert on Islamic theology? (The Guardian web-site does not count) Perhaps your anti-religious knowledge only extends to Christianity, because you can’t crib anti-Islamic theories from atheist web-sites as easily as you can anti-Christian ones?

    See things from another point of view, for once.

  11. faulksd says:

    English Viking –
    There is a High Street in my home town (but that’s not unusual). Nevertheless, that’s of no significance to me. I’m not sure if we’re acquainted in the non-cyber sphere or not; however I firmly believe that we’re heading in the same direction..

  12. len says:

    To call Islam a ‘religion of peace’ is only half the story.Islam divides into two houses Dar as-Salaam (“House of Peace”), and Dar al-Harb (“House of War”). Islam is not just a religion it is a ideology with a political agenda.
    So those in submission to Islam dwell in Dar-as Salaam, and those who oppose Islam Dar as Salam.

  13. len says:

    That should be those who oppose Islam dwell in the house of Dar-al Harb.

  14. English Viking says:


    I was aware of these things, but thanks for the heads-up anyway. It pays to know your enemy.

    With regard to my dwelling place, I hope to be as David, and dwell in the House of the LORD, forever. Psalm 23.

  15. len says:

    Religion seeks to control man`s ‘natural’nature by imposing restrictions on it through fear guilt and intimidation.Islam I believe means submission,submission to who,or what? . God wants a relationship with man based on love not on fear.
    God`s remedy is far more radical,knowing that nothing can change the old nature He gives a new nature.

  16. Richard Borrett says:

    “Will you sweep away the righteous with the wicked? What if there are fifty righteous people in the city? Will you really sweep it away and not spare the place for the sake of the fifty righteous people in it? Far be it from you to do such a thing – to kill the righteous with the wicked, treating the righteous and wicked alike. Far be it from you! Will not the Judge of all the earth do right? (Gen 18:23-25)

    Numbers 31:7-18
    They fought against Midian, as the LORD commanded Moses, and killed every man. Among their victims were Evi, Rekem, Zur, Hur and Reba – the five kings of Midian. They also killed Balaam son of Beor with the sword. The Israelites captured the Midianite women and children and took all the Midianite herds, flocks and goods as plunder. They burned all the towns where the Midianites had settled, as well as all their camps. They took all the plunder and spoils, including the people and animals, and brought the captives, spoils and plunder to Moses and Eleazar the priest and the Israelite assembly at their camp on the plains of Moab, by the Jordan across from Jericho.

    Moses, Eleazar the priest and all the leaders of the community went to meet them outside the camp. Moses was angry with the officers of the army – the commanders of thousands and commanders of hundreds – who returned from the battle.

    “Have you allowed all the women to live?” he asked them. “They were the ones who followed Balaam’s advice and were the means of turning the Israelites away from the LORD in what happened at Peor, so that a plague struck the LORD’s people. Now kill all the boys. And kill every woman who has slept with a man, but save for yourselves every girl who has never slept with a man.

    I am well aware (having had the debate a number of times) that the contemporary christian riposte to much of the violence in the OT is that Christ came and freed us from the ‘Old Testament’ (though that is probably not a particularly good explanation of the argument). My point is not that Christianity is violent, but that is is purely interpretation.

    I dont claim to be an expert on any religion, but nor am i arrogant enough to believe that I can reduce thousands of years of cultural history and myths (for thats what this all is anyway) to a single word.

    I am not particularly anti-christian, or anti -Islam. I believe in neither. However I do believe that many many people have made use of (all all sorts of) religions for their own evils. That doe snot make the religions (or their followers) necessarily evil or violent. Such a generalisation is purely idiotic (or deliberately hateful – i wonder which this is?)

  17. len says:

    It is a sobering though that the God of the Old Testament and the God of the New Testament are the same person.Two aspects of the same person judgement and Grace.
    Without Jesus Christ`s atoning sacrifice we deserve only Judgement, however God Himself provided the means to reconcile mankind to Himself. Jesus Christ stands between man and God interceding for mankind.

    “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

    God wishes everyone to come to the knowledge of the Truth and be saved.Jesus Christ is the perfect representation of God.

  18. Richard Borrett says:

    He that blasphemeth the name of the LORD, he shall surely be put to death, and all the congregation shall certainly stone him.–Lev.24:16

    21:18 For whatsoever man he be that hath a blemish, he shall not approach: a blind man, or a lame, or he that hath a flat nose, or any thing superfluous

  19. len says:

    Richard Borrett,
    If the point you are trying to make is God can be harsh you are perfectly right.The law`s God put into affect were for the containment of sin which was spreading like a virus throughout mankind.These laws were to be in effect until Jesus Christ was revealed to mankind.
    We are now in a period of Grace during which God suspends judgement.
    But this period of Grace will end and Judgement will fall on the remainder of mankind who refuse Gods offer of redemption.
    It is a point sometimes missed that God created this world and cares for it and man`s rejection of God allowed sin and death to come into this World and sin left totally unrestricted would destroy God`s creation.
