Starting in the Name of Most Merciful Allah

The word extremist means a person with extreme emotions about anything he like or dislike....if i love my family at my extreme, i will do anything, literally anything to earn happiness for it, i will never spare anything to earn my family's satisfaction and trust in me.... any word of my family will be last word for me, and i will go for it what ever to sacrifice, this realy is extremism.

In current debates, muslims are called extremists. This mean that muslims are being called true lovers of Islam......Means that a muslim extremist will spare nothing to fulfil Islamic Teachings...... a muslim extremist will alwasy be ready to sacrifice its life, its family even its emotions for the sake of Islam. i think up to this level every one will agree......

But every one also knows that no religion on the face of the earth, specially islam, supports terrorism... Every one knows true teaching of Islam are the most humble one, full of peace and spreading happiness. In all good actions like Charity, humble talk etc Islam never difrentiate Muslims and Non Muslims, it teach a muslim to equally treat muslim and non muslims with humbleness.

Than how strange that a person who kills inocent lives wether of Muslims or Non Muslims is immediately put on the list of Islamic Extremist..... I belive if a person who is a real Islamic Extremist can never do such things. he will respect Islamic teachings of Peace and humbleness.
