Dr Farrukh Salem: ’800 million Muslims out of 1.4 billion are illiterate’

Fact to realize is, Muslims have been poor, illiterate, war mongering savages for 1,400 years because they are kept hostage by Islam – a medieval hate ideology perpetrated by a criminal and lunatic who suffered depressions, raped, murdered and robbed other people, flew around on a ‘winged’ donkey, and had no control at all of his bestial urges, desires and distorted ego.
Islamabad freelance columnist Dr Farrukh Saleem gave his view on the matter in 2009.

The combined annual GDP of 57 Muslim countries remains under $2 trillion. America, just by herself, produces goods and services worth $10.4 trillion; China $5.7 trillion, Japan $3.5 trillion and Germany $2.1 trillion. Even India’s GDP is estimated at over $3 trillion (purchasing power parity basis).

Oil rich Saudi Arabia, U.A.E., Kuwait and Qatar collectively produce goods and services (mostly oil) worth $430 billion; Netherlands alone has a higher annual GDP while Buddhist Thailand produces goods and services worth $429 billion.

Muslims are 22 percent of the world population and produce less than five percent of global GDP. Even more worrying is that the Muslim countries’ GDP as a percent of the global GDP is going down over time. The Arabs, it seems, are particularly worse off. According to the United Nations’ Arab Development Report: “Half of Arab women cannot read; One in five Arabs live on less than $2 per day; Only 1 percent of the Arab population has a personal computer, and only half of 1 percent use the Internet; Fifteen percent of the Arab workforce is unemployed, and this number could double by 2010; The average growth rate of the per capita income during the preceding 20 years in the Arab world was only one-half of 1 percent per annum, worse than anywhere but sub-Saharan Africa.”

The planet’s poorest countries include Ethiopia, Sierra Leone, Afghanistan, Cambodia, Somalia, Nigeria, Pakistan and Mozambique. At least six of the poorest of the poor are countries with a Muslim majority.

Conclusion: Muslims of the world are among the poorest of the poor.

Fifty-seven Muslim majority countries have an average of ten universities each for a total of less than 600 universities for 1.4 billion people; India has 8,407 universities, the U.S. has 5,758. From within 1.4 billion Muslims Abdus Salam and Ahmed Zewail are the only two Muslim men who won a Nobel Prize in physics and chemistry (Salam pursued his scientific work in Italy and the UK, Zewail at California Institute of Technology). Dr Salam in his home country is not even considered a Muslim.

Over the past 105 years, 1.4 billion Muslims have produced eight Nobel Laureates while a mere 14 million Jews have produced 167 Nobel Laureates. Of the 1.4 billion Muslims less than 300,000 qualify as ‘scientists’, and that converts to a ratio of 230 scientists per one million Muslims. The United States of America has 1.1 million scientists (4,099 per million); Japan has 700,000 (5,095 per million).

Fact: Of the 1.4 billion Muslims 800 million are illiterate (6 out of 10 Muslims cannot read). In Christendom, adult literacy rate stands at 78 percent.

Consider, for instance, that Muslims constitute 22 percent of world population with a 1 percent share of Nobel Prizes. Jews constitute 0.23 percent of world population with a 22 percent share of Nobel Prizes.

What really went wrong? Muslims are poor, illiterate and weak. What went wrong? Arriving at the right diagnosis is extremely critical because the prescription depends on it. Consider this:

Diagnosis 1: Muslims are poor, illiterate and weak because they have ‘abandoned the divine heritage of Islam’. Prescription: We must return to our real or imagined past.

Diagnosis 2: Muslims are poor, illiterate and weak because we have refused to change with time.

Since Muslims tend to disagree with Dr Farrukh Saleem’s statistics and claims, here is a actual studied IQ chart around the world.

  1. muslims are as they are because their god is allah AKA satan… satan keeps them dumb and damed ,if they became Christian they would become wise as to who their god is… That is why our (US) founders put the Bible in the Schools so that the young would know the difference between a lie and the truth and taking the right path so not be misled by false teachers

    • You are a complete moron. You’re just as bad as they are, just a different book guiding you. And the US is supposed to be free of religious tyranny, but that idea got lost along the way.

    • Dear Janet,
      If you look the at history of faithful Muslims centuries ago you would not have said what you did. Most Muslims nowadays are only Muslims by birth, not by faith. If they have strong faith and fear of God as their great grandfathers did, they would be the best scholars, scientists, and inventors.
      God is always watching us, but we will be questioned before his mightiness on the day of Judgement for our sins and lack of faith.

      • come on buddy every one has faith in god and who told you that only muslims have faith in god…. You know what Muslims are killing innocent people and torturing and raping women …. god never told us to dominate women its only what your Devil Mohammed has written in his Shit Quran , he married his Son’s wife, fucked a dead body and sexually molested a 6 year old girl if this is what your religion teaches then feel free to practice and don’t show others fear of god …. God loves us all ,, Why should we fear are beloved god ,in Islam your spiritual leaders say that we are slaves of god … why the hell god needs slaves he is almighty and we are nothing infront of him … he loves and and we shouldnot fear god…. Keep your frickkin Barbaric isalmic teachings and please don’t pollute the world

      • Classic islam rationale.
        So, why would muslims be the best scholars, scientists and inventors? Why?
        And tell us, you are Pakistani or Indian?
