No religion encourages terrorist acts or violence. The word â€˜Islamâ€˜ itself means â€˜Peace, obtained by submitting yourself to the Almightyâ€™. Anyone, be it Muslim or non-Muslim, who kills an innocent Muslim or a non-Muslim, kills the entire humanity. However, Islam goes a step further to say that if one saves innocent lives, the whole of humanity is saved. Injustice is the root cause of terrorism.
Palestinians are called terrorists just because they are fighting to get their land back. Take examples of LTTE (in Sri Lanka), IRA (in UK), Lordâ€™s Salvation Army, which trains the young children to conduct terrorist attacks, and many other non-Muslim terrorist outfits; the lives claimed by these outfits are more than the ones by the Muslim terrorists.
Naxalites/Maoists across India and Nepal and the LTTE in Sri Lanka were non-Muslim terror organisations, which had developed pan regional bases beyond national boundaries. Other such non-Muslim terror outfits included the United Liberation Front of Asam, National Democratic Front of Bodoland and All Tripura Tiger Force in the Northeast of India.
The Japanese Red Army, Lordâ€™s Salvation Army and the ETA in Spain were also non-Islamic in character and composition.
â€œSo nothing is more removed from truth as to suggest that Muslims have monopolized terrorism, â€. The Irish Republican Army, which was considered to be terrorist group, has a history of 100 years of violence against the British, but the British government doesnâ€™t seem to be scared about them as they are about radical Islamic groups.
Besides, Even a single killing by a Muslim is condemned by Islam, whatsoever the reasons.
On the Media, Judiciary and Politicians
It is the plot of the Western media to destroy muslims.
Media controlled by the political authorities is biased and does not portray the truth or reality. Islam does not justify using wrong means to reach the right goals. People should not take the law in their hands
Terrorism is a monopoly of politicians. People, regardless of their religion, wish to live harmonious lives, but politicians feed the feeling of hatred amongst them.
