Killing in The Name of Religion

In past 10+ years, most of the Muslim world has seen destruction and unrest. Some of the countries were invaded while some were busy fighting internally. Some countries where Muslims are a minority are under attack. In short, the last decade has brought us unrest and chaos.

One of the many things that happened to the muslims is the killing of others in the name of islam. Many muslims and few non muslims have been targeted and killed. Since the American invasion of Iraq and Afghanistan, this kill game has started. There has sprouted many unknown and virtually insignificant groups of name sake muslims, who would some times kill women and children and some times they would prepare suiciders and those suiciders would kill others in mass numbers.

The Question here is, does islam asks us to do this? The answer is no. In fact the day this all started, people from different walks of life started to say it was wrong. Scholars also played their part and denounced all those who kill others in the name of islam.

Killings for the religion's sake is not only limited to islam, as the world believes. This has a very long history. Jews and Christians are known to kill those who ever opposed them. In fact, jews are mentioned in Quran and thy are condemned for killing their prophets. So, jews have a very long history. Christians also have their share in the history in this regard. They used to kill even those who would make some scientific breakthrough. Even today, christians are killing muslims of central african republic, a remote and small insignificant place in africa. Jews are killing muslims in palestine since israel was forcefully implanted on world's map. Christian militia is known for the killing of Muslims with the help of Israel.

But does this all can be done in Islam? The answer is no. Islam does not allow any such activity whatsoever. In fact, killing that is done for other than the just purpose is totally forbidden. Allah swt say in Quran;
[005:032] On account of this, WE prescribed for the Children of Israel that whosoever killed a person - unless it be for killing a person or for creating disorder in the land - it shall be as if he killed all mankind; and whoso saved a life, it shall be as if he had saved the life of all mankind. And our Messengers came to them with clear Signs, Yet even after that, many of them commit excesses in the land.
Islam has a very clear stance on this. We cannot go and kill any one because we are in disagreement with some one else. And we cannot take a life because we are told to do so. Taking a life for any unjust purpose will earn hell. If islam has no such history, then why is it being made a history of Islam? This is the real point of concern.

The need of the hour is to look for the black sheep. In every time, there were low life black sheep among muslims who worshipped glory and wealth. Khilafah ended because of such people. One reason of Muslim down fall is only because of such people. The reason why there is so much unrest, killing and chaos in the land is because of these few. What can the rest of us do? The rest of us can disassociate ourselves from these people. The agenda of the west is to wipe islam. And this is popularly known as new world order. This new world order cannot see islam in the world. And one way to do this is to re-write the peaceful history of Islam into barbarianism and killing. This is what is being done here.

Need of the hour is to know that Islam does not allow anyone to kill any innocent soul. We need to unit and we need to break free from the clutches of the new world order. This is the only way we all can survive.
