Secular Jihadists for a Muslim Enlightenment
Secular Jihadists for a Muslim Enlightenment
Ali. Rizvi & Armin Navabi
Throughout history, freethinkers have outraged the religious with their wacky ideas about the virtues of free speech, reason, and, of course, eating babies. Now, God is dying—and it's time to dispose of his remains. From the pits of Hell, Satan sends two puppets of the imperialist West and the Zionist Jews against God, Islam, and tiny kittens to bring you their propaganda and conspire for a new world order. This is Secular Jihadists for a Muslim Enlightenment—with Ali Rizvi and Armin Navabi.

He was known for his avid support of Pakistan's blasphemy laws and hateful rhetoric against Ahmadi Muslims and other religious minorities. One of the people Khadim Rizvi targeted by name is our guest, Shaan Taseer. Shaan's father Salman Taseer was murdered by his own bodyguard for alleged blasphemy, and Khadim's support for the murderer led to the founding of his organization, Tehreek-e-Labbaik. Today, Shaan's voice is among the loudest against Pakistan's blasphemy laws.
