Dear IQ (Peru)

Once again I am in state of disbelief that such learned people like you are misguided and giving reference of misquoting facts. Islam and terrorism are two different things. Good and true Muslim cannot believe and preach terrorism in any shape or any form. There are Quaranic verses which are wrongly quoted for obviously for wrong reasons to justify their view point and interestingly , pseudo Islamic Scholars are getting support of these verses in order to infuse poison in the minds of branded youth who subsequently do whatever these pseudo scholars carry orders. Such people and its supporters are killer of human civilization. I request all of you from this platform to read authentic books on any religion otherwise, it will create political and social anarchy in the society. Today, Christianity, Judaism Hinduism and other religions are shrinked and reduced to the court yard because people especially youth have least interests owing to malevolent and inhuman activities of those scholars. Consequently, human values are fastly vanishing and disappearing from society. In Islam Mullah has no role but due to weakness of rulers and lethargy of intellectuals, vacuum is filed by fire branded Mullahs who are mostly extremists to the core in their beliefs and tenets.

The reference of Quaranic verse which you have given is out of context and based on shallow and narrow knowledge. Such verses were particular period when Muslims were at war with non-believers (especially those who created hurdles and forced Muslims to fight with them). That was a Divine order.

During the war, different strategy is adopted. US dropped nuclear bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki and killed hundreds of thousands innocent people who had to with war which was waged by imperialist. But US considered it a great victory despite killing innocent people and never shown or gave hint to regret on this brutal incident.

On the contrary, I challenge to quote any example where Holy prophet during his life time, had perpetuated any offence even in war course. He declared general amnesty during Mecca war, those who got shelter in the house of Abu Sufian.
