Muslims blame the Jews, the Americans and other ‘Dushman-e-Islam’ for all their problems which they themselves pose. One of them is terrorism which is a product of their extremist and radical interpretations of the Quran and Hadith. But while talking about terrorism, Muslims intellectuals, journalists and columnists pretend to be unaware of these interpretations and their hardcore ‘ulema’ and blame terrorism on the enemies of Islam and call it a conspiracy against Muslims.
Urdu newspapers regularly carry articles on
the topic in which they present the theory that terrorism is only a conspiracy
against Muslims and Islam and that Muslims do not believe in terrorism. In an
article in Akhbar-e-Mashrique Kolkata, 1 March 2019 edition, a similar
article has been published without the name of its writer. In this article, the
columnist has presented the same conspiracy theory on terrorism blaming it on
the enemies of Islam. The columnist names four more prominent terrorist
organizations – Al Qaida, Jaish-e-Mohammad, Lashkar-e-Taiba and ISIS among them
he says Al Qaida and ISIS have done more damage Muslims than others have done.
But surprisingly, the columnist has left the name of another prominent
terrorist organization Taliban. To him, Taliban is not a terrorist organization
or he may mean that Taliban is a real Muslim terrorist organization and not
created out of a conspiracy by the enemies of Islam. The learned columnist
“This world terrorism is a world conspiracy against Muslims and Islam which has affected the entire Muslim community of the world. All these people calling themselves Jihadi Muslims are a product of the Yahud-o-Nasara (Jews and Christians) and violent polytheists who are presenting a wrong image of Islam before the world. They are sowing the seeds of hatred against Islam and maligning the sacred practice of jihad. For this purpose the Jews and Christians prepared people with Islamic names in Islamic countries and introduced them as fighters of Islam. This gave them two-fold benefits. One, because of them, violence and bloodshed have been spread in Muslim countries and two, Islam and Muslims have been maligned in the entire world. This is their purpose.”
A large section of Muslims do not consider Taliban a terrorist organization though the UNO has designated it a terrorist organization. Some Muslim organizations do not agree that they are terrorist organizations though they carry suicide bombings on residential areas, markets, school vans, hospitals, schools and marketplaces killing innocent people including children.
Zakir Naik, the popular preacher defended suicide bombings calling it permissible in Islam. This is the position of many other so-called ulema. This mindset has not changed even after the exposure of the ISIS and its un-Islamic practices. Some of them have now started calling ISIS a terrorist organization only after the government banned it and they have been destroyed in Syria.
