MUSLIMS ARE FUNDAMENTALISTS AND TERRORISTS


Why are most of the Muslims fundamentalists and terrorists?

This question is often hurled at Muslims, either directly or indirectly, during any discussion on religion or world affairs. Muslim stereotypes are perpetuated in every form of the media accompanied by gross misinformation about Islam and Muslims. In fact, such misinformation and false propaganda often leads to discrimination and acts of violence against Muslims. A case in point is the anti-Muslim campaign in the American media following the Oklahoma bomb blast, where the press was quick to declare a ‘Middle Eastern conspiracy’ behind the attack. The culprit was later identified as a soldier from the American Armed Forces.

Let us analyze this allegation of ‘fundamentalism’ and ‘terrorism’:

1. Definition of the word ‘fundamentalist’

A fundamentalist is a person who follows and adheres to the fundamentals of the doctrine or theory he is following. For a person to be a good doctor, he should know, follow, and practise the fundamentals of medicine. In other words, he should be a fundamentalist in the field of medicine. For a person to be a good mathematician, he should know, follow and practise the fundamentals of mathematics. He should be a fundamentalist in the field of mathematics. For a person to be a good scientist, he should know, follow and practise the fundamentals of science. He should be a fundamentalist in the field of science.

2. Not all ‘fundamentalists’ are the same

One cannot paint all fundamentalists with the same brush. One cannot categorize all fundamentalists as either good or bad. Such a categorization of any fund amentalist will depend upon the field or activity in which he is a fundamentalist. A fundamentalist robber or thief causes harm to society and is therefore undesirable. A fundamentalist doctor, on the other hand, benefits society and earns much respect.

3. I am proud to be a Muslim fundamentalist

I am a fundamentalist Muslim who, by the grace of Allah, knows, follows and strives to practise the fundamentals of Islam. A true Muslim does not shy away from being a fundamentalist. I am proud to be a fundamentalist Muslim because, I know that the fundamentals of Islam are beneficial to humanity and the whole world. There is not a single fundamental of Islam that causes harm or is against the interests of the human race as a whole. Many people harbour misconceptions about Islam and consider several teachings of Islam to be unfair or improper. This is due to insufficient and incorrect knowledge of Islam. If one critically analyzes the teachings of Islam with an open mind, one cannot escape the fact that Islam is full of benefits both at the individual and collective levels.

4. Dictionary meaning of the word ‘fundamentalist’

According to Webster’s dictionary ‘fundamentalism’ was a movement in American Protestanism that arose in the earlier part of the 20th century. It was a reaction to modernism, and stressed the infallibility of the Bible, not only in matters of faith and morals but also as a literal historical record. It stressed on belief in the Bible as the literal word of God. Thus fundamentalism was a word initially used for a group of Christians who believed that the Bible was the verbatim word of God without any errors and mistakes.

According to the Oxford dictionary ‘fundamentalism’ means ‘strict maintenance of ancient or fundamental doctrines of any religion, especially Islam’.

Today the moment a person uses the word fundamentalist he thinks of a Muslim who is a terrorist.

5. Every Muslim should be a terrorist

Every Muslim should be a terrorist. A terrorist is a person who causes terror. The moment a robber sees a policeman he is terrified. A policeman is a terrorist for the robber. Similarly every Muslim should be a terrorist for the antisocial elements of society, such as thieves, dacoits and rapists. Whenever such an anti-social element sees a Muslim, he should be terrified. It is true that the word ‘terrorist’ is generally used for a person who causes terror among the common people. But a true Muslim should only be a terrorist to selective people i.e. anti-social elements, and not to the common innocent people. In fact a Muslim should be a source of peace for innocent people.

6. Different labels given to the same individual for the same action, i.e. ‘terrorist’ and ‘patriot’

Before India achieved independence from British rule, some freedom fighters of India who did not subscribe to non-violence were labeled as terrorists by the British government. The same individuals have been lauded by Indians for the same activities and hailed as ‘patriots’. Thus two different labels have been given to the same people for the same set of actions. One is calling him a terrorist while the other is calling him a patriot. Those who believed that Britain had a right to rule over India called these people terrorists, while those who were of the view that Britain had no right to rule India called them patriots and freedom fighters.

It is therefore important that before a person is judged, he is given a fair hearing. Both sides of the argument should be heard, the situation should be analyzed, and the reason and the intention of the person should be taken into account, and then the person can be judged accordingly.

7. Islam means peace

Islam is derived from the word ‘salaam’ which means peace. It is a religion of peace whose fundamentals teach its followers to maintain and promote peace throughout the world.

Thus every Muslim should be a fundamentalist i.e. he should follow the fundamentals of the Religion of Peace: Islam. He should be a terrorist only towards the antisocial elements in order to promote peace and justice in the society.

well, hope u dont blindly trust what the media says about Bin Laden. No one really know the truth about him. but one thing is for sure, he was definitely not behind the WTC as publicised by the Western Media. Bush n associates jus used him as an excuse for their dominion n intruding of Middle east countries.
Even U.S citizens agree to the fact that Bush govt had planned the WTC attack. Even the video footage aired was fake n pre-planned by CNN n BBC.

I'll tell you something apacheman. It is this obession with religion which makes the world look at Muslims with paranoia. This is first of all a technology forum and there are hardly any religious discussion here. I believe most members here do not give a penny about what Muslims are and are not. What I see here is a subtle attempt on your part in missionary works, unless of course you have something else up your sleeve.

*Basket Case*
I agree with some points, and I disagree with some.

I think, the main 'problem' that comes into play is not fundamentalism- everyone should be free to think and believe what they deem best. The main problem here is fanaticism (which, incidentally, is NOT restricted to Islam). The problem is that some people tend to interpret the scriptures (whichever they may follow) to their liking and to their convenience.

@Aberforth
Hmm...*realizes that what I said is very similar to what you did. Anyway, meh* Ah, and I'd also like to point out that its not only Muslims that are 'obsessed with religion' You see that trend in almost all faiths.

~Lil JinX~, I agree that I see that trend in all faiths but compare the obession of a Muslim with that of others. How many Hindu, Christians, Sikhs, Buddhist or Jews made a thread about religion on this forum? Muslims made at least two of them.

My cousin was admitted to the Stanford Graduate School of Business...but he is now being denied a Visa because he is Muslim. No other reason...he got a 750 on his GMAT, he had a 3.9/4.0 GPA, he was the only Indian fresher to be admitted to the GSB in a LONG time. AND he was granted a visa once before already for his engineering course...he opted not to do that but go to Australia instead though. And now he applied for his VISA 3 months ago. It has still not come and they say that it probably wont.

**** America, **** their paranoia, and please keep in mind I am a Muslim as I say this, **** ALL YOU MUSLIMS WHO HAVE RUINED OUR COMMUNITY IN THIS WORLD!

Offtopic: ^^ I know dude. Sh1t happens. Now America and someother first world countries are showing this kinda attitude to the entire south asian community, not only muslims. They are phasing out the scholarships and everything in their colleges.
They think their people can have no cons. Terrorists kill people coz of religion, Americans kill people coz of GTA/Doom and Manhunt. Whats the similarity between the two clans??? BOth are bunch of arseholes. :)
