Accusations and Islam
Submitted by Adnan zia (Pakistan), Sep 15, 2008 at 05:01
Now a day in Media we see storms of accusations on Islam. Everyone is trying to give their expertise views about Islam but instead they lack information. Islam believed in the coexistence of religions.
As we see some glimpses in Islamic Spain when three great religions used to live under one authority. Jews declared that era golden age of their civilization when in all over the Europe they were persecuted terribly now days their basic religious rules derived from that era. There is no misconception about this mutual coexistence lead us toward Renaissance.
But at the same time I do believe the Era of "Almohads" brought calamities to minorities.
Muslims ruled 1000 years in India but there was not a single Genocide of Hindu populations at that time. If we are accused of force conversion of Hindu populations then no force can hinder us to doing this. Now Indians enjoying 80% of their Hindu population.
But at the same time I do admit that Sultan Ghaznavi brought destruction to Hindus + plus Taimur lang killed 100,000 Muslims and Hindus for the sake of his power in 1398.
No Muslim army ever visited to conquer Indonesia and Malaysia but Indonesia has 220 millions of Muslim population.
The Last Fact which cannot be denied. When Muslims were on the Apex of their power (1200-1671) after the Crusade Resistance and before the last siege of Vienna in the centre of Europe. Muslims never launched Holy Crescent War on Europe when they have 3 powerful kingdoms far bigger then the size of Europe (Ottomans Turks +Persian Empire+ Mughal Empire)
Whole world including Muslims are facing extremists. World should understand who are they instead of blaming whole Muslim throughout the world by the act of single group.
My first question is who created them in 1980's .who nourished them against Russia. Its not the act of Muslim states. Why Osama was declared Hero who was fighting against Kefirs? Who allowed world donations to these liberalists who were fighting the sovereignty of their country? Not Muslims….
When Russia leave out Afghanistan why not these Islamists were dispersed?
Why these jihadists were seized to go to their home having fear that they can overturn the dictator governments whom supported by Americans for their special interest?
Why they were not trained with the modern education like computer course, and other several small courses?
These peoples understand how to shoot Helicopter how to trigger Missiles Guns but why they were not trained later when Americans interest was fulfilled without a single American soldier loss?
Why they were not awarded American Green Card when at that time thousands of Immigrants move to US?
Why they were not declared American Scout Army including pension facilities to arouse sense of Gratitude towards America?
Why East Timor conflict was solved in few days why not Kashmir (dispute created by United kingdom in 1947)?
Why not dispute of Palestine was solved when on the other hand Muslims do not conduct the Genocide of Jews?
Europe Union for Christian states, East Timor freedom only for Christians, Kashmir, Palestine dispute only Muslims? Is this thing doesn't depict your double standard policies.
We do regret suicide bombers because there teachings lead us towards blur future. Their teaching is totally Unislamic act as it was so many times condemned by greatest Muslim Scholars in the Islamic world
