Reader comment on item: Debate in London: Radical Islam vs. Civilization

Submitted by Imdad Ali (Pakistan), Mar 12, 2007 at 02:11

Media influences people of western countries, which is partial and oozing out venom against those who are not accepting their viewpoint. Media is not realistic to tell accurate and correct viewpoint on Islamic fundamentalism. It is myth created by US to net Europe in her arm. Deliberately, US did not play active and brisk role to halt the genocide in Bosnia, in order to make Europe realize that they are unable to solve their problems. Worst use of modern technology was used by US against Japan. Furthermore, western countries not only gave license to Serbia and other fanatics to kill muslims in Bosnia but also supported Israel to kill Palestinian in grotesque manner

When Muslim civilization was at the peak, West was in total darkness, monarchy, social anarchy, political turmoil, authoritarianism of Priests and ceaseless wars on minute issues were the order of the day. Renaissance and reformation movements, which brought about political, social and academic awareness, were transferred from Muslim world, not from heaven.

Muslim civilization was destroyed, books were charred, libraries were burnt out and scholars were ruthlessly killed. Subsequently governments were also blamed that did not support scholars to carry on their research activities in variety of field. It is rightly said, had there been any institution, which is awarding Noble price, hundred percent Muslims scientists, would have been honored. Knowledge is not exclusive property of any community; it belongs to those who have capability and potentiality to use for better of humanity..

Western countries to exploit Islam in Afghanistan against Communism coin faulty concept of Jihad in modern sense. Western media hilariously comments that jihadi groups are committed to drive out communist forces from Afghanistan. Even it is on the record that CIA also trained OSAMA BIN LADEN.

As far as Jehad is concerned, it is vast topic, it needs proper attention and study, Jehad means, struggle to drive out evil forces from society, which are polluting humanity or which are threat and menace to the society.
