Thanks for giving reply.

Dear friend, shallow and narrow approach is always lead t stray. Islam never gives license to kill innocent persons. It is explicitly written in the Quran that who so ever saves innocent person, he saved entire humanity and who so ever kills innocent person, he killed entire humanity. It is Divine order; it is obligatory upon all Muslims to save the lives of people irrespective of faith.

It is essential for any critic to read and understand basic philosophy of Islam then he has absolute right to criticize it. Passing sweeping comments on frivolous knowledge is tantamount to be a partial. For sake of own interest, US played significant role to promote Jihad in Afghanistan to wipe out communism. At that time, world critics remained silent as cucumber because it was happing in the interest of western countries. US trained bin Laden and other die-hard leaders who supported Jihad in Afghanistan.

Once US achieved its objectives, it turned down her face and ignored Afghanistan. It was breeding ground for Jihad movement because they wanted its expansion and power. Had their energies diverted towards political, social and economic infrastructure, tension would have not developed. Further more, it was in the interest of US to create space for such organization to create fear and tension in Europe, which was dithering away from her.

Fantasies and allegorical stories are concocted to confuse the people regarding Islam. Without any iota of doubt, I candidly tell Islam preaches peace, believes in human values and respect others.
