Harris Sultan claimed,

This book is written for those Muslims who unknowingly disagree with the values that are fundamentals of Islam. My message to all these in-between Muslims is to either denounce Islam altogether (since you disagree with its values) or become like the Taliban or ISIS since they are the true followers of Muhammad’s Islam. It may seem harsh, but the true Islam is actually the Islam of the Taliban and ISIS, and by living a double life, I am certain, if there was a God, he would not be happy with you for accepting some of his ideas and ignoring the rest.”

Harris Sultan raised three major questions in Islam, focusing on the Quran, which he discussed in his book titled The Curse Of God: Why I Left Islam, that made him leave his religion, Islam. He said,

To try to understand the validity of Islam or any other religion, I asked three questions: 1. Is there any evidence in favour of this God? 2. Is the morality depicted in this religion good? 3. Is the science in this religion correct? I will note here that I would be dishonest if I said that I could do this all myself. Books like The God Delusion helped me a lot to understand the other side of the argument. These three questions led me away from Islam.”

The first flaw he took out from Islam by focusing on the Quran is that it explains the human origin, the creation of nature, and God as the eternal source. But it does not explain where God has originated from. The second concern he claims is the position of women is an issue in Islamic morality. Homosexuality is a notion which is not allowed according to Islamic morals, but ‘Bandi’ (slave) law allows males to own female slaves. He showed his concern in his book,

Lastly, the real audience of this book is the Muslim women who are being abused by this religion. I cannot comprehend the sorrow and sense of powerlessness a woman has every day in a male-dominated religion. Any sane person understands how important women are in producing the society of not only today but also of tomorrow, yet women are treated as if their sole purpose is to produce babies and serve their men. I would like to reach out to those women who are being abused and discriminated against by their husbands, brothers, or fathers and encourage and empower them to raise children who will be like anything but those husbands, brothers, or fathers.”

The third concern is that several stories in the Quran lack scientific proof, and provides no evidence to back up these claims. He believes that the Quran includes illogical claims and people obey them without questioning or seeking explanations.

Harris Sultan and the Locked Grave in Hyderabad

An image of a grave locked with an iron grille was initially shared on Twitter by Harris Sultan who claimed that the grave was in Pakistan, and said,

locked as parents in Pakistan wanted to save their dead daughters’ corpses from being raped.”

In April 2023, his claims were demolished by Alt News, an Indian fact-checking news channel, which identified that the locked grave had nothing to do with necrophilia, and was not in Pakistan but located in Madannapet, Hyderabad, Telangana. The grave was of a 65-year-old woman, Zaheen Begum, who died in 2020. In response to the claim, Harris Sultan had to delete his tweet and apologise. The tweet read,

Thank you, @zoo_bear, for getting to the bottom of this. While this is not an excuse and I must apologize for the source of my initial information, which was from @SanamBalochfans.
