—————-————————————————— Persecuted during the so-called Islam’s Golden Age of the 8th-9th century :
At Seville the works of the theologian Ibn Hazam were burned. The mystical poet Al-Hallaj was crucified. The writer Ibn Muquaffa was killed; the licentious poet Bashshar Ibn Burd was condemned for heresy. The philosopher Ibn Rushd (Averroes), the historian Ibn Khaldun, and the poets Ibn Sharaf and Al- Husri all had to go into exile (Tahar Bekri, of Tunisia). Similarly, there is a very moving essay by Algeria’s Latifa Ben Mansour in tribute to the poet Al-Hallaj, which includes the verses he recited before being led to the scaffold. These essays revealed to me an entire tradition of martyrdom on behalf of art and freedom.
———————-Critics killed under instruction of MOHAMMAD himself /Mohammad’s Dead Poets’ Society
March 624 : Al-Nadr bin al-Harith (beheaded), Uqbah bin Abu Muayt (beheaded), Asma bint Marwan (mother of 5, stabbed with a sword in her sleep with baby by her breast).

Abdullah ibn Sa’ad : Abdullah was one of the secretaries of the Muhammad. When Muhammad dictated verses of Qur’an to Abdullah, Muhammad accepted some of the interjections from Abdullah as part of the revelation. These incidents caused Abdullah to repudiate Islam, leave Medina and go to Mecca, spreading his belief that Muhammad composed the Qur’an himself without divine intervention. Following the conquest of Mecca in 629 Muhammad ordered that Abdullah should be executed, but Uthman protected him.
