“Terrorism cannot be born of religion. Terrorism is the product of corrupt minds, hardened hearts, and arrogant egos, and corruption, destruction, and arrogance are unknown to the heart attached to the divine. Islam is a religion of tolerance and peaceful coexistence with all of humanity both as individuals and communities. Islam views people as honored creatures without regard for their religion, race, or color. “
If you ask any Islamic cleric or the politically correct leader about linking Islam with terrorism, their most probable answer would be, that terror has no religion or color. India’s External Affairs Minister, Mr. Salman Khurshid when asked the same question few months back, he answered:
“Terror does not have religion. We have said this very clearly. And religion should not be associated with color. This we have said very clearly. It is terror that we have to fight. Terror directed against India that we are fighting.”
Ask this question to any of the above mentioned people, the answer would be absolute same. But the question is, are they factually correct? Does Terrorism really has no connection with any particular religion? Has terrorism no color? In this article I will try to answer these questions using evidences, and teachings from canonical scripture of Islam and by the facts provided by the terrorists (Jihadis) themselves.
There are loads of evidences which proves Islam is the religion of Terrorism, but it cannot be compiled in a single article. So I’ll try to provide some evidences which proves my point. The Islamic clerics themselves admit that it is OK to kill the Non-Muslims (Kafirs) as per the teaching of Islam. In 2002 [WND], A London-based Muslim cleric has been caught on film urging his followers to kill non-Muslims – particularly Americans – and to commit other acts of terrorism.
Sheik Abu Hamza, affiliated with London’s Finsbury Park mosque, tells an audience that non-believers should be killed or sold into slavery in a tape converted to digital files and smuggled onto the Internet.
The tapes were reportedly given by Hamza to a researcher who posed as a supporter and infiltrated his inner circle.
“If a kafir person (non-believer) goes in a Muslim country, he is like a cow,” explains Hamza. “Anybody can take him. That is the Islamic law.”
Another example is of Ajmal Kasab, the sole surviving gunman from 2008 Mumbai attacks admitted that hisAKAS (Islamic Leaders or Preachers) told him that killing ‘Hindu kafirs’ and getting killed while doing so is the most pious way to get to heaven, where a thousand million virgins will be waiting to serve them and take them even higher.
If these two example are not sufficient enough to prove that Islam is the religion of Terrorism, so let’s see what happened in West Gate Mall in Kenya.
According to an Eyewitness News who spoke to the Economist magazine’s Daniel Howden who is in Nairobi.
He said after the initial burst of firing was over, several witnesses said the attackers were calling on Muslims who were inside the mall to identify themselves so they could be allowed to leave.
The above report proves that the terrorists identified Muslims as their own, so they allowed them to leave the mall to kill all the other Non-Muslim inside the mall. As per another report:
[quote/]“In one instance, it was described to me that an Indian man pretended he was a Muslim and was asked to provide the name of the mother of the Prophet Muhammad. When he couldn’t provide it, he was shot dead in front of everyone.”[/quote]
It again proves that the terrorists wanted to know the religion of people who tried to escape, and they asked them questions, which are mostly known to Muslims. The Indian man was killed because, he didn’t knew the name of mother of Muhammad, whom terrorists adore as their Prophet, and his religion as their religion.
The evidence against Islam, becomes much stronger by the recent suicide bombing by Muslims in a Church in Pakistan, which was only attended by Christians. The sole intention of suicide bomber was to kill as many Non-Muslim he can.
These terrorist attacks are not alone evidence, there are dozens of verses too, which exhorts Muslims to become terrorists. Although I have discussed it many a times, still I’ll quote few verses which clearly commands Muslims to kill and fight those who accept not Allah as their Lord and Muhammad as his Prophet.
Quran 8:39 says, “And fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief and polytheism: i.e. worshipping others besides Allah) and the religion (worship) will all be for Allah Alone [in the whole of the world]. But if they cease (worshipping others besides Allah), then certainly, Allah is All-Seer of what they do.”
The verse is self-explanatory, the author wants Muslims to fight the Non-Muslims until the religion is solely for Allah, i.e. Islam alone. Many Islamic scholars complain us of quoting the verses out of context, but unfortunately the verse itself says to fight the all the disbeliever until religion is only for Allah, which leaves no room for contextual interpretation.
Quran 9:14 says, “Fight against them so that Allah will punish them by your hands and disgrace them and give you victory over them and heal the breasts of a believing people.”
It is amazing to read that it is Allah himself who is using the hands of these terrorists to punish innocent non-believers, still people say that religion should not be linked with terrorism.
Now I believe after going through these evidences, any rational mind, without a shadow of doubt will agree with me, that Islam is the religion of terrorism. Terrorists are born out of preaching of Quran, and yes terrorist have a religion a color, which is Islam.
