The claims that Dr. Iftikar Ahmed Ayaz makes here are commonplace, but they raise a question: where in Islamic history has Islam ever been a catalyst that brought about peace and justice? In my book The History of Jihad From Muhammad to ISIS, I show that the only peace that ever prevailed in lands conquered by Islam was the peace of Sharia, with non-Muslims subjugated and denied basic rights under Islamic hegemony, and the only justice was the justice of Sharia, which involves not only the subjugation of non-Muslims but of women and others. This has been a constant throughout history. Can Dr. Iftikar Ahmed Ayaz show any place that Muslims have gone that peace and justice by any definition other than Sharia has prevailed? I doubt it.
