Sujit Das’ work Islam Dismantled: The Mental Illness of Prophet Muhammad is a much- needed critique of the founder of Islam. It’s easy to find books criticizing the founders of other belief systems from around the world but when people are brave enough to subject forever-intolerant Islam to these same rational examinations the cowardly political correctness police pretend it’s “hate speech” or “Islamophobia.”
I’ve mentioned in the past my personal belief that Joseph Smith, the founder of Mormonism, was a mentally unbalanced man who simply stole a lot of his ideas from Rosicrucian writings of the 1600’s. The spineless American left never has a problem with that sort of comment but any and all criticism of Islam is taboo to them. They’re already using their usual shrill accusations of “hatred” against Sujit Das’ book.
This marvelous work ignores the general academic fear of treating Islam like every other religion and courageously goes where Liberal cowards fear to tread. Conservative Christian fanatics will not like this book either because so much of Das’ approach could also be applied to figures from the dawn of Christianity.
Muhammad, if he even really existed, was just another demented religious leader spreading an irrational, violent and hate-filled faith. There is nothing “sacred” about him and he deserves to be subjected to the same cold analysis that any other quasi-historical figure rightly receives.
