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

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.


Dr Farrukh Saleem

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. THIS ILLITERACY MAY ATTRIBUTE TO THEIR STRONG FAITH IN ALLAH… Unlike the Koran, which clearly states in Sura 4.171 “Allah is only one God; far be It from His glory that He should have a son,” the Christian and Judaic Scriptures reveal God has a Son in Proverbs 30:4: “who hath established all the ends of the earth? what is his name, and what is his son’s name, if thou canst tell?” The urgent point is that 800 million illiterate muslims had this read to them, as opposed to reading it themselves. The Jewish author of Romans wrote, “So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” But Satan can only counterfeit and so faith for muslims comes by hearing and hearing by the word of lies and deceptions. They need to know God really does have a Son and He is King of the Jews, Jesus Christ! This heartfelt realization will end their terrorism….

    • CLARIFICATION TO ABOVE: “The urgent point is that 800 million illiterate muslims had Sura 4.171 read to them, as opposed to reading it themselves.” But now need Solomon’s Proverbs 30:4 read to them for a turn around………


  2. Reblogged this on Centinel2012 and commented:
    The problem is that Diagnosis 1: is not possible and that Diagnosis 2: would mean they would have to change fundamental aspects of their belief structure — mainly that the Qur’an is “literally” the world of Allah and therefore can’t be changed. Therefore they are stuck in the 7th century and they have no way out!


  3. Actually you people are illiterate. If God has a son then he should also be God. God is far more superior than humans. Why was God’s son a human? (if you have a son, is he human or a monkey? If your son is a monkey or donkey then your theory might be correct.) If Jesus was God why was he human? and if he was God, where is he now? did he die? How can a God die? was he helpless God? If God can have a son, why he had only one son? there are many questions that you cant answer, so shut your mouths and increase your knowledge.


    • Monkey, donkey – how is that any different than having a “prophet” whoms father died three years before he was even born (!) and who spent his adult years pillaging, looting, killing, raping and engaging in pedophilia? Reality is Mohammed was born to his wet nurse, who was a slave. She was not married and slaves were raped frequently. He was basically the offspring of rape. And that’s your perfect man that you should all emulate and whom you believe has some messages from God who orders you to kill other people, while the lowest of people (Muslims) imagine they are superior. Madness.
      You think your argument has reasoning but when we look at Islam, there appears to be no reasoning whatsoever amongst its followers.

      • You have the habit of spreading such easy lies. You are full of hatred and hence lies.

        “Reality is Mohammed was born to his wet nurse, who was a slave. She was not married and slaves were raped frequently. He was basically the offspring of rape.”

        And people like you do not even consider lying as immoral. Everyone knows you are lying… but it is the “hate” that supresses rationality.


      • Hate? You mean the Koran is hate? We’re only referring to the Koran. You’re accusing the messenger, not the message…


    • Islam is a piece of garbage and every sane human knows this. Muslims and their inbred faces and brains has a place in my trash can, where the trash man comes to pick up every weekend. Got and rot their. Fuck islam adn fuck muslims – you all are doing it to each other anyway, that’s why you all look (really look at your fat, bearded, hijabi selves with your daft round eyes and bog noses) so IN-FUCKIN-BRED.

    • Before Jesus, Jews had to make animal sacrifices to God in order to be forgiven of sins. Jesus was essentially God in human form. He came to make all things new. His purpose was to die for our sins. Therefore making ancient sacrifices obsolete. And rather than demanding that people stone a prostitute to death, he he said, “Let he who is without sin cast the first stone”.And they all dropped their rocks. That is just one of many examples that show the compassion and evolution of Christianity. Rather than the barbarism, hatred, and the need to reverse time as what Islam teaches. No human can judge a human. That choice is reserved for God! He showed us our love by sending himself in human form to feel human pain and suffering. And ultimately death. He made a sacrifice for us so that we can always be forgiven. And to show that it is never too late to repent. By offering himself (Jesus), he showed how much he Loves us. And he never demanded to hate non-Christians. As to where Muhammed required that the word of God be spread by conquest and bloodshed. You truly are savages! But if you read more, you would know that he was Resurrected and ascended to Heaven just as Muhammed supposedly did. And one question- Jesus is an important prophet in your religion. So why do all of you hate him so much? (And he wasn’t fucking 9 year old girls either) Sorry sir, but the lack of knowledge lies with you!


    • There is no god! The sooner we realise this, the better we all will be. The belief of gods has only created paths of destruction since they came to mention. There is no god – just fools following a path because they know none other. Make some fine bread and share it with those that are hungry – forget your teachings of the past and enjoy a prosperous future. This is the only way to avoid the catastrophe ahead.


  4. It’s undeniable that muslims are hamstrung by a combination of their primitive, outdated beliefs and their primitive outdated culture. Centuries ago, they were at the forefront of astronomical research and now largely reside in an intellectual backwater.
    One of the greatest paradoxes in the world today is that America, at the helm of western affluence and technology, is similarly afflicted with a different brand of religious idiocy.

  6. Muzzies are the scourge of humanity. They have been fighting, killing and beheading since biblical days, add NOTHING to society and are despised in every corner of the earth. Can ANYONE actually see anything even slightly resembling a human being in a Muzzie? They kill, torture, rape, behead, blow up, riot, shoot, stab and ….well, that’s about it! Everything about the poor, stinky, backwards, ignorant, low IQ barbarians is disgusting. They are TRULY utterly worthless in every way.

  7. Yes, that’s right. I agree 100 present of your statistics. Here in Somalia, the leaders Of Jihadists, are idiots and ignorants. I know personally, many Of them are the failures. They mostly work as mercinaries and they don’t understand the consequences of their activities. Therefore, moslems are fighting unholy war and we are going to lose by killing innocent people. These jihadists are led by non Moslems, but the ignorants cannot understand. This morning I witnessed an American trainer teaching his Somali soldiers about the difference of real Islam from the fake Islam. I wondered, an American Soldier teaching me Islam. What kind of Islam is he teaching. Therefore, Islam is no longer for Moslems alone. It’s a philosophy, like communism, Moslems are the only victims.


  8. Educated Muslims in the West realise that the Koran needs a similar renaissance to the Bible, to prune out the commands to kill or conquer. Peaceful Muslims are hostage to those that have a vested interest in using Islam for hatred and conflict.

    The Koran cannot be altered because it is considered the word of God and the word is sacred. This allows every zealot with a cause to interpret it any way he sees fit to convince the masses to do their bidding. As the masses are illiterate, they cannot read the book, interpret it for themselves and see the lies. They are misled and perpetually held in a state of ignorance, to ensure the rule of the holders of the faith – the clerics.

    Islam was handicapped by the Koran’s original authors. It contains texts that are contradictory and incompatible with the modern world. It is doomed to continue a path of destruction until the rest of the world can no longer tolerate it. At which point those that wish to remain Muslim will be isolated from the developed world, or, if they continue to fight eradicated for the good of mankind,

    qatar has the largest gdp in the world,,from where did u get netherlands??

    also ur statistics are wrong?? from where did u get it??


  11. The only way out of this is basic education first…that is proper education in trying to understand Allah’s Great Book…
    Allah tells us His message is ‘easy to understand’, He says it is a ‘clear message’ – but majority of Muslims refuse to believe this..they say we must follow hadiths (man made writings) and listen to sheikhs etc.. but the truth is we DO NOT need anyone to teach us anything on any matter..just basically The Quran.. then all of our future Studyjudgments – we will be guided- we left He has left us..


  12. Can you please provide me any links to the study on IQ rates and the literacy rates around the world. Thanks I don’t disagree with your evaluation I would just like to have the source.

  17. An impressive share! I’ve just forwarded this onto a coworker who had been doing a little homework on this. And he in fact bought me lunch simply because I stumbled upon it for him… lol. So allow me to reword this…. Thank YOU for the meal!! But yeah, thanks for spending the time to talk about this matter here on your web site.


  18. A lot of thanks for all of your work on this site. Betty really loves setting aside time for internet research and it is simple to grasp why. Most people learn all concerning the dynamic manner you convey rewarding tips on the website and as well encourage participation from visitors about this point plus my princess is undoubtedly being taught a great deal. Enjoy the rest of the new year. You have been conducting a fabulous job.


  19. Unfortunately, all those point (the true and the false) doesn’t matter for the Muslims. We strive towards heaven, you strive towards nobel prizes.
