Who will go to Hell?

Who will go to Hell?

Will idolators and polytheists who ascribe partners to Allah go to Hell or will Muslims who call God as jealous go to Hell?

It is the basic belief of both Islam and Christianity that “God is jealous”.  Worshiping God in the form of an idol or a symbol is equal to worshiping someone else other than God. This makes God jealous and he punishes all such idol worshipers and polytheists by throwing them in Hell forever. Ascribing partners to God (Allah) is an unforgivable sin (Quran 4:116, 4:48) and so is idolatory. Hindus who worship God in many forms such as idols, symbols,  rivers,  sun etc are the worst offenders according to Islam and Christianity. They deserve severe punishment not only in this life but also in the afterlife. Another belief of Islam is- Muhammad was the best and last of God’s prophets. Any man claiming to be a Prophet after Muhammad is a hoax, followers of such a hoax Prophet deserve severe punishment and even extermination from the world.

If there is anything like Hell, God will send followers of Islam and Christianity to it (but certainly not for eternity, since there can never be infinite punishment for finite crime). There are many reasons for it. Some of them are:

1- Islam says that any one following a false religion will go to Hell. That is exactly why Muslims will go to Hell, because Islam is false.  Even after being given hundreds of evidences that Islam is false, such as the numerous mistakes in the Quran, (historical mistakes, eg. Mistaking Jesus’ mother Mary for Moses’ sister Mariam in 19:27-28 and 66:12 even though there is a time gap of more than twelve centuries between Mary and Mariam, contradictions, scientific mistakes, grammatical mistakes etc) they continue to deny the undeniable, try to give irrational and far-fetched explanations for these mistakes, and dismiss these mistakes as ‘tests’ by God to test their faith. Those who continue to follow a false religion despite hundreds of evidences that it is false, merely for fear of going to Hell will definitely go to Hell.

2- God is extremely benevolent and kind. Why should God be jealous? A kind, merciful and compassionate God is false vilified and called as jealous by Islam and Christianity. Naturally, if a kind and benevolent man is labelled jealous, he will be angry. God, though benevolent and merciful will be angry with those who call him jealous, and hence will punish such people by throwing them into Hell.

3-Muslims call a human’s words as “Words of God”. When anyone questions the Quran and points out the contradictions in it, and other mistakes, Muslims say, “You are questioning the word of God. You will go to Hell. You are disregarding the words of God”. In reality, Muslims are insulting God by calling a human’s words as “words of God”. As a result, God will be very angry with them and will say- “An ordinary man wrote the Quran, it is full of errors and even after seeing the errors you continue to say that I wrote such a violent book? I will punish you for that.”

4- Muslims believe that God punishes unbelievers, idolators and polytheists by throwing them in Hell. What will happen in Hell? How is Hell? Quran Chapter 22 Verses 19-22 says:
“These two antagonists dispute with each other about their Lord: But those who deny (their Lord),- for them will be cut out a garment of Fire: over their heads will be poured out boiling water. With it will be scalded what is within their bodies, as well as (their) skins. In addition there will be maces of iron (to punish) them. Every time they wish to get away therefrom, from anguish, they will be forced back therein, and (it will be said), “Taste ye the Penalty of Burning!""

   Of course, no God can be so cruel. These are not God’s words but words of a man who wants to scare others into believing in him to serve his own purpose. In Chapter 111 of the Quran, Muhammad’s own uncle and bitter enemy Abu Lahab is cursed horribly, the words are unbecoming of God, or even of a Prophet. They are words of the enemy of that uncle.

   Now, even after this, if people claim that God wrote the above verses, God will be extremely angry with them and say “You believe that I am such a cruel, ruthless, tyrant throwing my children into Hell? You have called me a cruel, ruthless thug. You will be punished for that”.

5-  Quran also says,

We will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve, because they set up with Allah that for which He has sent down no authority, and their abode is the fire, and evil is the abode of the unjust.
And prepare against them what force you can and horses tied at the frontier, to terrorize thereby the enemy of Allah…
I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them.”

Naturally, no God can be a terrorist. But here, Muslims believe that God is a terrorist, terrorizing and killing unbelievers in such a cruel way. Any kind and benevolent God will punish those who attribute such qualities to Him. So, far from Hindus going to Hell for idol worship (which is nothing but worship of God Himself), it is Muslims who will go to Hell for calling God as Jealous, tyrant, cruel, ruthless terrorist and following a false religion. That is, if there is anything like Hell and if God exists. No one has yet ever been able to give a good answer to the question- How was God born? How could such a great all-powerful power have come into existence? On its own?

No God can be author of the verses which are quoted here.

6- For argument’s sake, let us assume that God exists. Will God punish non-believers? If after death, one dies and meets God, God will actually PRAISE THE UNBELIEVERS and say “You did not believe in anything without proof. You used your brain, came to your own conclusion. You will be rewarded for using your brain and not falling for the ridiculous propaganda that I AM JEALOUS. Or that I want all human beings to abandon use of their brain and blindly follow the so-called Prophets without using their brains. I, the Almighty God gave humans a brain to think rationally, freely and come to their own conclusions. Those who attributed insanity to me, cruelty to me, and followed charlatans merely for fear of going to Hell will be punished by me”.

     Let us say, we reached a wrong conclusion and that Islam is true. God will be very happy with us for not believing his true religion and using our brains. God will say “You used your brain which I gave you. You committed no sin. You did not blindly believe Islam for fear of going to Hell. You studied Islam, read the Quran, found many mistakes, studied Muhammad and reached a conclusion based on your facts that Islam is false. I am extremely pleased with you for that, reaching your conclusion using the available evidences, even though the conclusion you reached was inaccurate”.

   Also, if Islam and Christianity (or any one of them) were indeed from God, would God say “Accept what is given without any questions and anyone doubting even the slightest will go to Hell”? A true God would have asked people to raise as many questions as possible, get all doubts cleared, and use their own brains to see if they find that Islam is true or not, instead of threatening people with Hell for not believing in Muhammad. When someone forces others to follow anything blindly, it means he has something to hide.

  But those who followed a religious book which was so very violent, and believed that God is JEALOUS abandoned their own brains, gave up free thinking, blindly imitated a man living in the 7th century, rationalized all blatant mistakes in the Quran will be punished by God, if at all God punishes people.

  But it does not mean there are no believing Christians and Muslims now or in the past who did not overcome the fault of their theology. Many have loved their fellow believers without learning to hate their pagan neighbours. All this shows that man is greater than his creeds and ideologies and that humanity can survive its hate-ideologies. But will it? These ideologies have killed millions of people in the last 1700 years.

Beliefs of Islam and Christianity

    Hindus believe that they should offer their sincere prayers to God in any form they like. They can look upon God with form or without form; He is infinite, omnipresent, omnipotent and omniscient. They can worship Him in the form of Mother Earth, Water, Air, Fire, Sun, Moon, Stars, Oceans, Rivers, Mountains, Intelligence, Memory, Learning, Valour; infact, anything that inspires them to make life noble, sweet and sublime. They are also taught that they should respect others' ways of worship and prayers. They should be good, helpful and noble in their conduct towards all, irrespective of their caste, creed or colour. 

As it stands today, every Religion has 3 aspects:
    a) Relationship between man and God
    b) Relationship between man and other persons of the same Religion
    c) Relationship between man and persons of other Religions.

    Reason-wise, both Islam and Christianity are very weak, but in aggressiveness, both of them are very strong; they do not tolerate any questions. Both Islam and Christianity have the following Common Beliefs:

i)                   God is jealous. Worship of God in the form of an Idol or any other Symbol like Sun, Moon, Stars, Earth, Ocean, Rivers, etc. is equivalent to worshipping somebody other than the One God. This arouses jealousy of the One God who inflicts severe punishment for this type of worship. Hindus who worship God in many forms including Nature, are the worst offenders according to Christianity and Mohammedanism. Hindus are called Heathens, Pagans, Condemned ones, infidels, idolaters, Kaffirs, etc., deserving severe punishment, torture and extermination wherever possible.
ii)                Christians and Muslims have both entered into Covenants with God, by which each religious community has received an Exclusive, Irrevocable Power of Attorney from God that its way of worship alone is right, that after death they alone will go to Heaven, others will go to Hell. Of course, the way of worship by Christians is different from that of Muslims. However, both communities claim Exclusive Rights. Believers of Islam become Non-Believers for Christianity and vice-versa.
iii)              This Heaven for Believers is eternal, and the Hell for Non-Believers is also eternal. Once in Heaven, their enjoyments are eternal; once in Hell, others' sufferings are also eternal. 
iv)              There will come a Day of Judgement when all the dead ones will rise and stand before God to get the verdict of either Eternal Heaven or Eternal Hell.

 In addition to their Common Beliefs, the Christians and Muslims have also their own special Beliefs. Some of those are outlined below:

Special Beliefs of Christianity
i)                   Birth by routine sex relationship between husband and wife is a sin. As such, we common people are all sinners. Jesus Christ was born to Virgin Mary, without routine sexual relationship; hence his birth is free from sin.

ii)                Jesus Christ is SON of God. Jesus is the Only Son of God; God has no other Son, nor shall he have any other son or daughter. Hence, Christ is the only way of communication with God.

iii)              Jesus rose to life a few days after his Death on the Cross. This Resurrection is a proof of His Divinity.

iv)              Through crucification, Jesus has paid for the redemption of all sins of all his followers (Christians), at all places, for all time to come. Hence, Jesus is the right and sure way for human salvation.

v)                Jesus has given all Authority to the Church. What Church commands is the LAW for the human race, both on Earth and in Heaven; no one should question it. Any deviation from the command of the Church is violation of God's Law and hence punishable, as per by God's Decree. Church is the only authority in respect of Spiritual and Secular matters of human beings. All other Rules of conduct are the violation of Divine God's Command.

vi)              Jesus is the Way, the only Way, to reach God.

vii)           Those who Believe in Jesus as the only Way are assured of eternal paradise of pleasure after death; others are condemned persons on this Earth, who will go to eternal hell of fire after death. As such, the human race has been divided into two classes of "Holy Believers" and "Unholy Others"; Holy Christians, Unholy Non-Christians.

viii)         It is the spiritual, religious duty of the Christian Church and of every individual Christian to convert others to Christianity. Through this conversion, they are doing good to every non-Christian in as much as they are taking him out of false religion and false ways of worship to the only true religion (Christianity); they are saving the condemned unholy person and bringing him into the holy group of Christians, under the protection of the Shepherd Christ and his Authorised Agency (Christian Church).

ix)             Idol-worship or Symbol-worship including worship of Sun, Moon, Stars, etc. particularly of Non-Christian idols/Symbols, is un-acceptable to Jealous God; Such worship annoys Jealous God and he sends his severe punishment for such worship.

x)                The Holy Bible is the Word of God, to be obeyed by all, without question.

Special Beliefs of Mohammedanism

i)                   There is no Power other than Allah. Prophet Mohammed is His Representative/Messenger on the Earth.

ii)                Allah gave this Earth to Prophet Mohammed; the latter gave this Earth to Mohammedans. As such, the whole Earth legitimately belongs to Mohammedans. If others are to live on this Earth, they have to live as Mohammedans or as willing sub-ordinates (Dhimmis) to Mohammedans, paying Jizya Tax till they get converted to Mohammedanism.

iii)              Allah revealed all His Laws of correct conduct through Prophet Mohammed; his is the correct conduct in all respects-sitting, standing, eating, drinking, dressing, sexing, fighting, taking, giving, etc. He has been the ideal representative of Allah, the best and last of Allah's Prophets; there can be no Allah's Prophet after him; anyone claiming to be a Prophet after Mohammed is a hoax; followers of such a hoax prophet deserve extreme punishment and even extermination from this Earth.

iv)              The Laws of correct conduct spoken and practised by Prophet Mohammed form the Laws of SHARIAT. This Shariat is the Divine Law of life on this Earth. All other laws of conduct enunciated by any other person or group of persons on this Earth are invalid unless they are perfectly inline with Shariat. Any civil, moral, criminal or economic law, not in line with Shariat, is an unjust, immoral and tyrannical law which has to be removed from the surface of the Earth; to remove this type of injustice and tyranny from this Earth is the bounden religious duty of every Mohammedan. As such, no government other than Mohammedan government, functioning strictly under Shariat Law, is a legitimate government; other governments have to be abolished; there is no other option for a Mohammedan; he cannot live under the rule of any other law, wherever he may be living on this Earth.

v)                To establish Mohammedanism and Shariat Law in every part of this Earth, Mohammedans have to follow, individually and collectively, the following three stages of struggle (Jihad):

a)     Persuasion and quiet pressurization.

b)    TERRORISM: This should create a sort of TERROR in the minds of non-Mohammedans, that sooner or later, they have got to become Mohammedans; the sooner they adopt this as their own religion, the better it is for them; otherwise, nothing is safe for them -their limbs, their life, wife, family, friends, property, land, etc. When such TERROR is created and established in the minds of non-Mohammedans, the latter shall have no psychological will to fight a pitched battle or military war against Mohammedans. Even if a pitched battle or military war is organised by non-Mohammedans, their defeat is assured because they have been terrorised to lose self-confidence; within their minds they feel frightening diffidence, to fight.

c)     Pitched Battle/Military War: The psychologically weakened, emaciated and demoralized military force of non-Mohammedans cannot face the Mohammedan force which believes that it is fighting for the cause of Allah, for establishing His religion and His Law of Shariat on this Earth; Allah is Great (Allah-O-Akbar).

vi)              This three-stage struggle (Jihad) to establish Mohammedan religion and Law of Shariat on this Earth is a religious obligation for every Mohammedan; to relax on this front is tantamount to dis-obedience of the Command of Allah; the obedient ones will have all the fruits of Jihad: global empire, wealth, and access to all enjoyments. Should a Mohammedan die in this God's war against non-Mohammedans, he will be greeted by beautiful Hoories at the gates of Heaven; even beautiful handsome boys will be available to the Mohammedan for his enjoyment in the gardens of Heaven; he can sit there reclining against soft cushions, the Hoories will come to him with glasses of wine which does not create intoxication; the Hoories chasten chanting glances at the reclining Mohammedan and he enjoys infinite happiness in the company of handsome Hoories and beautiful boys; the Mohammedan does not grow weak or old at all in that Heaven; eternal enjoyment in that company is the fruit he has legitimately earned through living and dying in the cause of Allah, the cause of His religion of Mohammedanism on the Earth.

vii)           On this Earth, Mohammedans form community and community laws of their own, as per the Law of Shariat; all other laws are unjust and tyrannical and hence invalid for them; they have the divine right to disobey all such laws. For them, political boundaries have no meaning; those boundaries are made by man, not by Allah. The all-powerful Allah has validated only one community – the Mohammedan community; one country-the Earth; one loyalty -loyalty to the Holy Prophet Mohammed; one valid Law-the Law of Shariat. A Mohammedan belongs to only one nationality-Mohammed's nationality; his allegiance is to only one land-the Holy Mecca. Every piece of land under Mohammedan rule and under the Law of Shariat is a land of justice and peace for him; every other piece of land is a land of tyranny for him where he has to wage a war of Jihad and Sabotage for establishing Mohammedanism. If a Mohammedan is taking his food and hears a call from Mohammedans outside in a street-quarrel, he has to leave his food and rush outside to join his Mohammedan brothers.

viii)         When all other rules and rulers are removed from the surface of the Earth and replaced by the Mohammedan ruler under the Law of Shariat, then there will be total peace and justice on this Earth. As such, the Mohammedans are working only for Peace; Mohammedanism is "Peace and Justice". It is for this that they are fighting; the second name for Mohammedanism is PEACE. Mohammedans want to establish this PEACE on this earth. They cannot rest until this type of PEACE is established.

ix)              About one hundred years back, in most literature and in spoken language, the religion propagated by Holy Prophet Mohammed was called Mohammedanism and his followers were called Mohammedans; the words Islam and Muslims were not common. To give greater legitimacy and acceptability to this system, the words "Islam" and" Muslims" were made to become more common in usage; it is not a religion given by Prophet Mohammed; this religion already existed with Allah and it prevailed in Allah's Heaven; Prophet Mohammed only brought it down from Heaven to this Earth. Religion prevailing in the Heaven of Allah was and is ISLAM and its followers are MUSLIMS.

                The weakness of these Christian and Mohammedan Beliefs is very obvious, but who is to question? These Beliefs, without open-ness to reasoning, have led to cruelty and wars. As Prof. Radhakrishnan, late President of India, said in his Book "Hindu View of Life" (Unwin Books, 1960, 92 pages) as follows:

a)"Hinduism is wholly free from the strange obsession of some faiths that the acceptance of a particular religious metaphysic is necessary for salvation, and non-acceptance thereof is heinous sin meriting eternal punishment in hell" (page 28).

b)"Heresy-hunting, the favorite game of many religions, is singularly absent from Hinduism" (page 28).

c)"The intolerance of narrow monotheism is written in letters of blood across the history of man from the time when first the tribes of Israel burst into the land of Canaan. The worshippers of the one jealous God are egged on to aggressive wars against people of alien cults. They invoke divine sanction for the cruelties inflicted on the conquered. The spirit of old Israel is inherited by Christianity and Islam (page 40).

d)"Wars of religion which are the outcome of fanaticism that prompts and justifies the extermination of aliens of different creeds were practically unknown in Hindu India (Page 40)

e)"Hinduism insists not on religious conformity but on a spiritual and ethical outlook in life". (Page 55)

(Can anyone call Prof. Radhakrishnan an Ignorant HINDU COMMUNALIST? He was a learned and knowledgeable person; we must listen to what he has written).

  For the study of religions one should not go through second-hand or third-hand opinions and writings of different persons, however great they may be considered to be.  There are standard English editions of the Holy Bible which are available anywhere in the world. For standard English translation of the Holy Quran, the following books are useful: a) Oxford University Press Publication: "The Koran" byA.J.Arberry b) 50 Volumes of the Sacred Books of the East, Edited by Max Muller, first published by Oxford University Press in 1900, now published in India by Motilal Banarsidas, under sponsorship of UNESCO; Volumes 6 & 9 of these Sacred Books deal with Holy Quran. c) The Holy Quran with Arabic Text and English translation by Marmaduke Pickthal, published by Kitab Bhawan, 1214, Kalan Mahal, Daryaganj, New Delhi - 110001. All the 3 translations of the Holy Quran tell us the same thing.

    In respect of aspect 'c' of Religion (relationship between man and persons of other Religions), Islam and Christianity do not teach respect or even tolerance for the followers or worship-methods of other Religion. In simple language,   they teach hatred and war against followers of other Religions, particularly against followers of Hindu religion. They teach that people of other religions are condemned and wretched ones whose Religions have to be destroyed and removed from the surface of the earth, who have got to be converted out of their religions by any means, even by slaughtering them, if necessary. Note here that criticism of these religions does not mean condemnation of all their followers. Most Muslims and Christians make good citizens. A large number of Christians have softened down and largely abandoned out-dated childish beliefs, and generally ended forced conversions, but still there are many missionaries who are wedded to these beliefs and trying their best to convert, genuinely thinking that they are saving others (particularly Hindus) from the Fire of Hell after death, and showing them the only 'true path' of Jesus. Most Muslims make good citizens, but either condone acts of violence or themselves commit such acts when their religion is invoked by the clergy.

         We have to judge any Religion, not by what is done or proclaimed by a few individuals of that community, here and there.There will always be individuals in every religious community who would be noble or ignoble in their conduct. We should not be hasty in speaking about other religions in terms of the noble or ignoble conduct of a few persons of a community here and there.We should rather go by the following criteria:

 i) Basic teachings of the Holy Quran in respect of Islam and the basic teachings of the Holy Bible in respect of Christianity. ii) The past histories of these Religions-Islam andChristianity iii) The recent and current histories of Islam and Christianity.

 Very few books are available in India on the havoc done by Christian Church in the world. Now, the Holy Pope (John Paul II) is going around "apologising" for horrible crimes of Christian Church against humanity in the past. Quite a few books on history of Christian Church and even on the history of Islam from outside India reveal this. By and large, 24 volumes of Encyclopaedia Britannica are also quite useful in studying the horrors of the Christian Church. They tell how, they physically tortured, murdered and burnt alive those who disagreed with the Doctrine of the Church; how they battered to death their babies, looted their houses and raped their women in the presence of helpless men as prescribed in the Holy Bible (Isaiah 13; 15-16). Among other brutal crimes, they also destroyed Hindu religion in Eastern-Europe by destroying Hindu Temples and Hindu Libraries. Infact, Islam learnt these horrible things from the Christian Church. 

The current violence and secessionist movements of the locals in North-East India (Meghalaya, Mizoram, Tripura, etc.) are the results of the work of the Christian Church. The violence and terrorism which brought Partition of India in 1947 is the work of Islam as taught in the Holy Quran. The Church-men and Muslims are following the teachings of the Holy Bible and the Holy Quran respectively. The Sermon on the Mount in the Old Testament and Christ's Message of love and turning of the other cheek in the New Testament are used mostly for show and for trapping the people inside Christianity. There are other teachings in the Holy Bible, which teach hatred and war against non-Christians. The Church follows those teachings of hatred and war in action while it preaches love and peace from its pulpit. Their methods are very complex and secretive. Only a careful study of their actions will reveal the truth. External appearance of the church can be very deceptive.

An eminent elderly scholar who is now 92 (born in 1922) and a retired UN official undertook this study and got his head cleared up, leaving no doubt in his mind about the criminal activities in which the Church had been engaged during the last full seventeen centuries, to spread Christianity throughout the world. The Church had been the supporter of Western Colonialism and exploitation throughout the world. Presently, in addition to Army, Navy and Air Force as three armed Forces, the Western Colonial Powers use the Christian Church also as a formidable Fourth Force acting in every country of the world; to re-establish Western Colonialism in one form or the other. The Church derives the inspiration and justification for its activities from the Holy Bible. A few sample Quotations from the Holy Bible are given later. The Jesuit Missionaries who took to educational and social service activities after 1525 AD, to establish Pope's Absolute Dictatorial Authority on Earth, under inspiration from St. Loyola, have had to take an oath known as 'Jesuit Oath' given in another place.

It was available in earlier Christian literature and now is available on Internet also. That oath prescribes TERROR, VIOLENCE, and DECEPTION; it has been the source of crime against humanity and of terrible Christian wars on the Earth. If this Internet home-page put up by some Christian organizations is wrong and malafide, the Vatican can legally contest and have it removed from the Internet. It cannot. The Oath is well-documented. One can see it on Internet even today. In practice, almost all the denominations of the Christian Church follow the methods enunciated in this “Jesuit Oath" for converting people to Christianity.

In this respect, Islam has played less of Hide-and-Seek Game. Islam has been more Honest and Straightforward:"Accept Islam or die; you can also live as a slave (Dhimmi) of Muslims in the first instance till you get converted. If, however, you persist in not getting converted to Islam, then be prepared to lose your limb, your life, wife, children and everything."

Elsewhere are given some sample quotations from the Holy Quran. Every follower of Islam has to join the "Islamic Jihad " at every stage of his life. Jihad is Islamic struggle to firmly establish Islam on every bit of Earth's surface, to the exclusion of all other religions, particularly Hindu religion which is referred to as religion of the Idolaters, Pagans or Kaffirs. This is clearly explained in the Book "Quranic Concept of War" by Brig. S.K.Malik of Pakistan with Foreword written by Military Dictator Gen. Zia-Ul-Haq (Gen. Mushraff of Pakistan has now taken over the Military Dictatorship in Pakistan). This Book was published in Lahore (Pakistan) and is reprinted (1986) by Himalayan Books,17-L, Connaught Circus, New Delhi-110001 (India).TERRORISM is an important component of this Jihad. Some quotations from this Book of Brig. S.K. Malik are given in another place here.
