Thanks to those ungrateful souls who named violence and inhuman as God’s will. Thanks to those ungrateful souls, according to whom, burning houses and open firing at innocent people, is worship. And thanks to all those ungrateful souls, who support them. This is insane and inhuman.
The word “Islam” actually translates to “submission to the will of God”, which is miscoined by some of its followers, who refer violence, human slaughter, terrorism, rapes, killings, and other inhuman activities as the will of God. And thanks to them, the world looks at the whole Muslim community as a terrorist — the sad truth, but its the reality. Ever since the 9/11 bombing, the world conquered a different perception towards the Muslims. Speaking of terrorism, it's true that almost all the terrorist organisation are based, and are operated by people condemned to the Muslim religion. However, it's insane, illogical and completely inappropriate to mistreat other innocent Muslim(Humans) as a terrorist. Sudden detentions, and imprisonments inflicted upon people, many of whom were as innocent as the Americans who were a victim of this massive terrorist attack, was not only against humanity but also a shame for those who call themselves humans after enforcing such laws, without facts, or evidence.
Muslims nowadays have become as vulnerable as women in India. Even countries with high Muslim population like Pakistan is not safe for Muslims. Courtesies to this accord, Pulwama Attack. Muslim women, on the other hand, have become more indigenous to the world. Sadly truthful, but actual reality. Muslims, living in countries with less Muslim population, face a tremendous amount of discrimination, humiliation, and ill-treatment, because of their religion. Actually, they face all this because of the perception created in the minds of the people, who tend to follow the trend of blaming the whole sack of apples, if even one of them is rotten.
Religion is a nice way to categorise humans. Nice enough to cause conflicts due to different beliefs and rules. Nice enough to create a rage between two different communities who have completely opposite beliefs. India is a land with a majority of Hindus, and thanks to the Brexit which happened in 1947, there was very sharp crease created between the Hindus, Sikhs and Muslims. A crease, which led to a nice handshake between India and Britain(irony, because it was Britain who turned us against one another), but half a century bloodbath war between Pakistan and India. Reflecting upon the fact that all the religions have been living in harmony with one another, it is ridiculous even to state that all Muslims are terrorists. Quoting the line from SRK’s movie, My name is Khan, and I am not a terrorist, actually signifies the dreaded and troublesome life, Muslims have to live.
So stop accusing and defaming Muslims, just because some people from their community, behave this way. Stop being an Islamophobic, and rather be a philic. Stop using terrorism as an excuse to outcast a whole religion out. Stop creating conflicts just because your thinking is different from them. Bring your morals out rather than your ill perceptions.
