Barbarism – it’s not Islam

Jihad is not only war; it’s the betterment of society, removing evils from society, preventing the vulnerable from exploitation.

Now-a-days Islam is being labeled as the religion of extremists, fundamentalists, terrorists, so-called jihadis, Taliban and all negative connotations attached with Islam. It’s not the real picture; in fact it is just a faction of Muslims who are symbol of such acts and has tarnished the real face of Islam.
There are some so-called Jihadis and Taliban who has caused the real damage to the spirit of Islam. Now and then we used to come across some disturbing news describing some Talibans hit the schools, took responsibility of suicide attack, target killing of so-called liberal fascists, girls exchanged in “Vani” or “Sawara”, Acid thrown on girls, Hudood cases, karo-kari and so on. But the concerning point is that women are the major victims in such people’s entire act to endorse Islam.

Taliban give the Certificate of Shahadat to anyone who agree to be a suicide bomber whether in a mosque, in market, outside school, anywhere in Pakistan because Pakistan is American ally.

Whether it’s a jirga to settle a dispute, girls are being “Vani” or “Sawara”, it doesn’t depends on the nature of dispute, it only focus on scapegotting a girl to protect the male member of the family. If there are some extremists they vociferously speak against the education of girls and consider it totally Islamic to attack on girls school and threaten the families who send their daughters for education. Women are brutally murdered on merely suspicion of having some illicit relationship, without any proof or solid evidence they believe its appropriate to stone her to death in the name of karo-kari, men usually escape such consequences. Taliban give the Certificate of Shahadat to anyone who agree to be a suicide bomber whether in a mosque, in market, outside school, anywhere in Pakistan because Pakistan is American ally. And when outsiders see such news they consider it appropriate to label Muslims as extremists, inhuman and barbaric. …

But it is not truth. This is not Islam, it’s not the real face of Islam, its forged, counterfeit, fake and bogus explanation of what is Islam, which these perverted people follow and thus labeling it Islam.
Islam don’t teach us this, Islam is the religion of peace, humanity & love. Islam teaches us to love our relationships, love our children and spread peace in the world. Islam is the only religion which has given equal rights to males & females. Islam firmly orders the equal education of both girls and boys. Even Islam is the religion which teaches us to protect and not kill old people, women and children of enemies even during wars.

Even Islam is the religion which teaches us to protect and not kill old people, women and children of enemies even during wars .

Islam orders to protect your enemies if they enter your mosque seeking shelter. According to Islam if one innocent human being is killed it’s like the killing of whole humanity, here Islam doesn’t say Muslim, it refers Human being who can belong to any religion. Islam is the only religion which orders its followers to protect the minorities, their places of worship and respect their religion and their thoughts. Islam is the only religion which has given so many rights and respect to women which are lacking in other religions. Yes, Islam orders strict penalty for having illicit relationship but it applies both on male and female, above all the level of inquiry, proof and evidence needed for putting the charge according to Islam is never met and decisions are made on the basis of doubt. According to Islam Jihad is against non-Muslims who have become a threat to Muslims, but this is “little Jihad, the “Great Jihad” is internal, spiritual and improving oneself. Jihad is not only war; it’s the betterment of society, removing evils from society, preventing the vulnerable from exploitation.
