Terrorism Has No ReligionTerrorism is the unlawful activity of force or violence against Property or person to intimidate or coerce a government or its citizens to further certain social or political objectives. Law enforcement generally of two types of terrorism: domestic and international. Domestic terrorism is based and executed in the United States by our own citizens without foreign direction. International terrorism, which is connected to foreign governments or groups, transcends our nation’s boundaries. Terrorist acts against U.S. citizens can occur anywhere in the world.we know we all have religion so basically Religion is the set of beliefs, feelings, faith and practices that define the relations between human being and sacred or divinity. So the question arises IS TERRORISM HAS ANY RELIGION ?
We know a world is filled with different ideologies and religions formed around governments. The problem that arises from not separating church and state issues is that the government tends to force the citizens of the nation to worship as the administration deems fit. Within these religious groups are extremist and these members can be the deadliest of all the parishioners. Acts of religious terrorism are the responsibility of devout extremists that commit acts of horror in the name of many different religions. So they don’t have any particular religion.
Most of the terrorist attack everyday and killed so many person which include women man children etc is there any humanity to kill the person according to my view their don’t have any religion because if we said there are Muslim then they attack in Muslim country and killed Muslim person then in what basis we can say there have a religion .their killed their own religious people. Every country make some rules and regulation make policy to safe from terrorist .Like in Syria the attack by terrorist was such a example of losing humanity or faith in god. Attacks on Paris are heartbreaking and an outpouring of support is what should be expected as the shock of needless violence begins to sink in. Every time the death toll rose, it felt like a punch in the gut. Of course, people are experiencing fear, sorrow and anger, but not one of these is an excuse to express hatred toward another person for their religious background. The terrorist aim is to hurt, to kill, the chaos, to scare them , this define the terrorist not their religion. Acting of knowledge or education, faith extend the violence of actual terrorist
Is that Islam is a faith based on many of the exact same ideal as Christianity there are many similarities between both
1. Both believe in god worship
2. Both believe in hell and heaven
3. Both recount the stories of prophets like Noah, Abraham, Moses, David, Joseph, John the Baptist and Jesus, as well as parables like that of Adam and Eve
And there is little difference:
Muslims believe that Moses, Muhammad and Jesus were all prophets and messengers sent by God, but do not consider them divine. Original sin, or the sin Christians believe all humans are tarnished with at birth, does not exist in Islam. Muslims do not believe that Jesus died and was resurrected, but was actually just ascended into heaven. Neither faith is based on violence, condones terrorism or desires a world without peace. It is a fundamental failure on the part of modern education not to teach the beliefs of many religions and it is unfortunate that so many Americans lack the understanding of any culture but their own. Muslims are just as much as victim of these act as any country religion or group. Followers of Islam are the exact same fear anyone felt upon hearing news of the attacks on Paris. This horrifying attack should make him together and call for more understanding precautions’ and action in preventing future violence.
"should I tell people at school I'm not Muslim anymore?" She is seven. SEVEN.
This was said by a girl at the time of attack in Paris. Terrorism is an attack on society, on establishment and on safety. The people responsible for it lose their credibility as anything other than monsters the moment they agree to hurt someone. They are no longer members who can represent their religion or citizens who can speak for their country. Terrorists’ actions no longer reflect their cultures or traditions because they are choosing to abandon them. There are 7.38 billion people living on this planet. The two largest religious groups are Christianity and Islam, making up more than half of the total population. So, before you speak or accept the stereotypes perpetrated by the confused and uneducated, remember that the goal of terrorism is to make you hateful out of fear. Respond with knowledge.
They will prefer to pay their dues to the religious establishment, hoping that by doing so they are also buying their own freedom from coercion. Terrorists are so ideologically brainwashed that they would not hesitate to kill their own parents and relatives, let alone strangers. It's not religion that kills people, its terrorists.
They may claim they're acting in the name of religion, but terrorism is - and has always been - about power and destruction. In June 17, 2015, 21-year-old Dylan Roof entered the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in downtown Charleston, South Carolina, and shot and killed nine people. Roof came from a Lutheran family. This was an act of terrorism.
TERRORISM HAS NO RELIGION.
IRA, FLQ, Ku Klux Klan, ISIS. They’re all the same — terrorists motivated by socio-political goals, not spiritual aspirations. Militants, not men of faith. So we must know our real enemy. It is not Islam, rather it’s the extreme-leaning people of all backgrounds. Because of groups such as ISIS, it’s terrorism by so-called “Muslims” which has become the most widely known. But according to a study conducted by the U.S. government, more Muslims are victims of terrorism than non-Muslims. The study said that a staggering 82%-97% of all terrorism victims were Muslims. Just last week, a massive attack in Kabul killed 90 people, mostly Muslims. Their warped view of the world doesn’t belong here in our country. Frankly, it doesn’t belong anywhere in the world. It should die with them.
“NEW HORIZONS IN BRITISH ISLAM"
British Muslims consider terrorists to be a different species having nothing to do with them. Terrorists disguise themselves as Muslims, but they are not, for they have no regard for human life. As a student of world religion, I would say that at the core of Islam is strong faith and ecstatic love for Allah and his prophet Muhammad, plus a rich culture and set of ethical guidelines. Terrorist ideology corrupts these things by mixing in an element of violent fanaticism Faith is not the problem, religion is not the problem, ecstatic love for Allah is not the problem; the problem comes when young people whose faith is not yet mature and tempered by wisdom in philosophy or Peace Studies are told by terrorist recruiters that their faith justifies the killing of people of a different faith, or no faith at all. The perpetrators of the attacks on Glasgow, London, Bali, Madrid, New York and other places have all claimed inspiration from their religion.
No sensible person actually believes that acts of terrorism and war are motivated by religion. No religion favours killing and no religion should be blamed for murder. Most of the non-Muslims believe that Muslims are being ordered by Mohammed (Prophet of Allah) to kill all non-Muslims. That is really not true. Muslims are instructed to fight against terrorists, aggressor and oppressors. It also clearly mentioned in Quran (Holy book of Muslims) “not to fight against those people who are not fighting against you.” The word used in the Quran for kill is not “jihad,” it is “Qital,” which if we look at the Arabic translation means killing in a military capacity only. So thinking that 1.6 billion people, nearly one-quarter of the planet’s population, are terrorists is just foolish and ignorant. It is correct in saying that fundamentalism and extremism have nothing to do with religion. Islam is used as a pretext to do things that violate Islamic principles and the philosophy of life, peace and progress.
THERE IS NO RELIGION IN THE WORLD THAT DOES NOT CONDEMN TERRORISM.
It is the biggest myth, that religion inspires terrorism. Religions are made to show people about the real purpose of their life and they are made to benefit people. Terrorism is an individual act and we cannot blame any religion for this because no religion teaches people to create terrorism. Terrorists use religion as an excuse for their sinful act. They are people with intolerance and a hatred of peace. When people became intolerant and start believing that only their religion and their understandings are right, then that is the seed that plants the violence and terrorism. Terrorism has no religion.
