Moderate Muslims have to come forward to save Islam

Reader comment on item: Debate: "Islam, Islamism and the West"

Submitted by kamekish (India), Nov 17, 2010 at 02:12

Fear in west is genuine and legitimate. People need to be comfortable with fellow Muslims and for this moderate Muslims must take few positive steps.

Worshiping meticulously on regular basis make people self centric. In this global world, when we all are supposed to contribute with our intelligence and effot, worshiping for long duration remain a waste of time. It is my observation that people who worship more become fanatics, selfish and frustrated. Such person is danger to society because they can do terrorist activites. They can support terrorists or the cause of terrorists.

In society we must keep a watch on people who worship more and do not do normal work. They could be a threat to civilized society.

In all these cases, moderate person has responsibility to encourage devoted people not to waste their time and effort in worshiping and they need to be convince that Allah is powerful enough to take care of self. They do not need poor Muslims to sacrfice their life.

We all must work to protect humanity. Allah will be here after that only.
