Are you a hero, a bystander, a victim or a villain?

Please watch this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JMpuxLIgjPs I consider myself to be a hero as I have done lots of heroic things since 1982 to the present. I am a whistleblower on unethical conduct even against all odds. Are you whistleblower on unethical conduct or do you turn a blind eye towards unethical conduct? For example, “Ethics, too, are nothing but reverence for life. This is what gives me the fundamental principle of morality, namely, that good consists in maintaining, promoting, and enhancing life, and that destroying, injuring, and limiting life are evil.” – Albert Schweitzer, “Civilization and Ethics”, 1949. There are some ethical verses in the Quran http://skepticsannotatedbible.com/quran/good/long.html However, what about the following unethical laws?

1. Death penalty for apostasy.
2. Death penalty for blasphemy. Many critiques of Islam have been murdered by Islamists. Death penalties and murders are neither ethical, nor peaceful.
3. Death penalty for homosexuality.
4. Death penalty for adultery.
5. Son gets twice as much inheritance as a daughter.
6. Two female witnesses are required to counter one male witness.
7. Non-muslims are not allowed to inherit the properties and money of Muslims.
8. Males are allowed to have 4 wives but females are not allowed to have 4 husbands.
9. Husbands are allowed to punish disobedient wives by beating them. My cousin's daughter was beaten to death by her husband and he got away with it.
10. Chopping off a limb for theft.

To be fair, Islam is not the only religion with unethical conduct. Christianity has the same problems. For example, Ethical verses: http://skepticsannotatedbible.com/good/long.html and unethical verses #: https://www.evilbible.com I want these unethical Islamic laws repealed worldwide. I need people to join me because there is strength in numbers. Are you up for it? If so, please reply to this post and let me know. Thank you for being a hero.
