ISLAM AND THE GOOD MUSLIMS

Reader comment on item: ISIS Is Not Islamic?

Obama's view on 'Islamism' is not wrong and certainly not preposterous.

To Muslims the word 'Islam' is synonymous with 'Muslim', and it is not fair to describe 'Jihad against Non Muslims' and the 'horrendous treatment to women and children ', as characteristics of mainstream Islam.

The sum total of people in the category..'ISIS, 'Al Quida', 'Taliban', 'Boko Haram', 'Hamas', .etc etc along with there supporters do not constitute more than 10 % of Muslims of the World, which works out to less than 2 % of the world population. These categories too were once part of the Normal human beings, and became victims of time due to interactions of the world on them, quite a few of them are products of American interferences and American Injustice.

There are plenty of good Muslims all over the world ... who do not support the activities of the above category of Muslims, albeit there may be quite a large number of these Good Muslims who are not unsympathetic with them.

It is better to proceed with an assumption that every religion – including Islam - teaches peaceful co existence.

No body can stand on a pedestal and declare his religion to be superior to others.
