Much Compulsion In Religion

I don't know if you've heard of Mubarak Bala, 29 year old Nigerian from Kano, who was beaten and dumped in a psychiatric ward for 18 days for merely declaring himself to be unconvinced by any of the hypotheses for god(s) - that's all - just an insignificant thing like saying out loud, "I don't think there's really a Chief Wizard"!

The person saying "religion is fiction" is clearly not the one in need of psychological evaluation!!

Mubarak is free now so I'm going to pick up on the theme of Mubarak's imposed dilemma and talk more generally about about the supremacist mindset, which enables, if not compels, and justifies, within the confines of the twisted morality of the cult, this sort of imprisonment "for one's own good".

Mubarak's confinement reminds me of similar programs, called 'interventions', that are designed to help a drug addict get off their addiction, not, as in Mubarak's case, 'persuade' a reformed addict to rejoin a hive of users. A reverse-intervention, really.
The imprisonment or punishment for one who leaves the cult, is seen (within the cult) as for the benefit of the subject. A kindness! It is seen this way because the sacred text of cult proclaims itself as "the perfect word of god" and anything less than complete compliance with that god's "perfect way to live" is seen by its multitude of enthralled sycophants as inferior; inadequate in the eyes of the second-rate author promising to burn the subject forever!

Since I first heard of Mubarak's plight, I have been watching a stream of Muslims addressing Mubarak on Twitter and offering hellfire laiden threats, thinly veiled as best wishes.
I find it utterly repulsive and abhorrent in the extreme that people, who are supposed to love peace, are so twisted by the text imposed upon them by their ancestors that they do not recognise that their 'well-wishing' coercive urging of a loved-one to "make the right choice, restart your addiction and return to the haze of pretendsies", as compulsion! How can anyone not recognise, "Have you forgotten you will burn forever in hell if you leave the gang?" as an imposition, designed to coerce and compel?
If their favourite fable did not claim itself to be supreme above ALL other life paths and did not, at its core, utterly disrespect ALL other life paths, do you think we would have ever heard of these violent, inhumane and anti human rights reverse-interventions being perpetrated on those with a different point of view on the existence of Jinn, Satan, Angels, God(s) or Casper?
You can probably guess what I think.

As with all cults, there is mass hypocrisy in Islam; indeed, "Let there be no compulsion in religion"(Qur'an: Surah 2:256) must be the most transgressed of their idol's commands!
The reverse-intervention perpetrated by Mubarak's family is not the only one! This religious oppression happens on a daily basis to numerous victims of religion around the world.

Before one of these reverse-intervention "treatments" kills one of the victims let's
End religion for peace sake.
