I would like to express my solidarity with victims of Boston Bombing and all the innocent victims of these terrorist attack in present and past. Our enmity for love has stretched its limit that we do not want to see other human being different than ours – volatility erupts and terrorism booms and peace becomes a myth.
I believe the message of love, interfaith harmony and peace is confined to talks, seminars and reports. How far mutual love do we see among people of different faiths when hatred is spewed against each other from the pulpits of some religious institution. The world is perfectly aligned with such horrible teachings and preaching where airports, subways, train stations and innocent people are victims of constant terror.
I am appalled to read news about a Muslim Cleric in the United States who while addressing a crowd of Ethiopian Muslims during a lecture at T.C. Williams High School in Alexandria, Va. infiltrated hatred, disharmony and posed a blatant threat to already fractured interfaith and inter religious initiatives.
“The enemies of Allah are lining up. The question for us is, are we lining [up] or are we afraid because they may call us terrorists?” said Muslim Cleric Shaker Elsayed.
“Let me give you the good news: they are already calling us terrorists anyway. Whether you sitting at home, watching TV, drinking coffee, sleeping or playing with your kids, you are a terrorist because you are a Muslim.”
I wonder how such hatred speech can make more terrorist among us ? I do not really fancy the idea of my child playing with a future terrorist ? How much more danger there is if my own child turns out to be a terrorist blowing himself up on the name of religion one day. A thought which haunts me every day.
Killings on the name of religion should be a no go area. There are enough killings of people out of natural disasters, hunger, poverty and illness. Why adding more to the list on the name of religion?
Why are we bent on destroying our so beautiful a world than building it up ?
