Islam is the peace of religion don’t misunderstand

Islam the peace of religion

Simplicity is evident even in the question posed in this debate. The framing reveals a fundamental error.  That violent extremism is fundamental to Islam rather than committed by individuals. The fact that there is violence emanating from parts of the Muslim. The world does not mean that violence is a product of the religion. The matter is that the extremist violence that has overtaken a majority of Muslim countries. Including Iraq, Syria, and Pakistan is the product of complex political and social circumstances. They include colonial legacies and more modern great power politics — and the artificial borders that they bequeathed the region.

The perpetrated by official structures that favor a few over the many, and the collapse of government institutions. Religion, certainly, is part of the mix, especially in fragile nations or under authoritarian regimes, but that comes into play not because of the nature of the faith but because of the way it is abused and manipulated.

To grasp this complexity

It is important to understand three areas: the role of global politics that have destabilized the region and inflamed tensions; how dysfunctional states create an opening for extremism; and finally, how religion fills the gaps created by international and domestic uncertainties.

The United States’ role in stoking extremism is its support for the United Nations’ policies on Israel, which critics have attacked as a double standard. In 2003, John Austin, a former British Parliamentarian, wrote an article for the Palestinian NGO Miftah citing conflicts from Kosovo to East Timor to Iraq to Rwanda. In each of those cases the U.N. imposed enforcement measures such as arms embargos, and international tribunals to prosecute crimes against humanity.

Yet on Israel’s illegal building of settlements, there has been no action despite numerous U.N. resolutions dating back to the late 1970s often because of U.S. intervention on its behalf. As for state-level problems, domestic power struggles and government dysfunction across the Middle East have also opened the door for violent extremist groups. Robert I. Rotberg outlines in his book When States Fail: Causes and Consequences, that a state’s failure to provide citizens with basic rights and services allows violent nonstate actors to emerge and take control.

Failures were not limited to economic needs

A lack of political inclusion. Freedom of expression, and the right to live with dignity have been primary drivers of youth radicalization and violence. Recent example can be seen in Iraq and Syria: the Islamic State and al-Nusra Front have offered services and material benefits to lure citizens into joining the fight.

The death of Nabra Hassanen, 17, of Reston, northern Virginia, stunned the local community. Police have charged 22-year-old Darwin Martinez Torres with her murder.  She was muslim then evan also muslim are terrorist. Terrorist has no religion.

A man from Cardiff is believed to be responsible for a terrorist attack.  That left one person dead and 11 injured. When a van he was driving ploughed into a group of worshippers near a mosque in north London. Darren Osborne, 47, is alleged to have shouted “I want to kill all Muslims – I did my bit” after the hired van hit a crowd that had gathered to help an elderly man who had collapsed near a mosque. The Met said a 47-year-old man had been arrested on suspicion of the commission. Preparation or instigation of terrorism. Including murder and attempted murder in the immediate aftermath of the incident. Which occurred near two mosques in Finsbury Park after late prayers in the small hours of Monday morning.

Only muslim are terrorist. Terrorist has no religion.

An Indian court has convicted 24 people – 11 for murder – over a massacre during religious riots.  14 years ago in Gujarat state, then led by the current prime minister, Narendra Modi. Judge PB Desai found guilty of hacking to death and burning 69 Muslims sheltering in a residential complex in the city of Ahmedabad. One of the single worst massacres of the week-long violence. They are expected to be sentenced next week.

Modi, who was accused by human rights groups of turning a blind eye to the violence as then chief minister of Gujarat. But the latest verdicts are unlikely to have an impact on the Hindu nationalist premier.  Who was cleared in 2012 by a supreme court-ordered investigation. Celebrations erupted in the courtroom in Ahmedabad amid tight security.  After the verdicts were read out on Thursday, with victims and their families clapping and thanking the judge. The riots which left more than 1,000 people dead in total.
