Few days back I was going through an Islamic Online question & answer site, where a questioner asked the counselor, Does Islam Deserve the Title “Religion of Peace”? She added, “How is Islam more deserving of that title than any other religion like Jainism”. For many this question is not too hard to answer, but for those who rely and believe in the lies propagated by Islamic clerics and Islamic websites, I’ll answer this question for them.
I’ll start by answering the second part of the question first. “How is Islam more deserving of that title than any other religion like Jainism”? If we have to solely rely on actions of the follower of both the religion, i.e. Jainism and Islam, then without a shadow of doubt, even a blind, deaf and dumb can say that Jainism is far more peaceful and deserves the title. It is said, ‘action speaks louder than words’, then let action of Muslims alone answer this question. Till date I have not come across any news which says that a Jain has killed Non-Jain because of difference of religion, or killed a Non-Jain, because he/she criticized Jainism. But, this is very common news in Islam, in which daily we can find at least more than 10 attacks led by Islamic terrorist from around the globe. Muslims love to kill innocent Non-Muslims because they are Non-Muslims. This is not only Muslims choice, but their holy duty to kill and fight non-believers until they accept Islam as the only true religion and Allah to be lord or world.
Even the most known name in the world of Islamic terrorism, Osama Bin Laden wrote a letter to America quoting Quran, he wrote:
“In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful,
“Permission to fight (against disbelievers) is given to those (believers) who are fought against, because they have been wronged and surely, Allah is Able to give them (believers) victory” [Quran 22:39]
“Those who believe, fight in the Cause of Allah, and those who disbelieve, fight in the cause of Taghut (anything worshipped other than Allah e.g. Satan). So fight you against the friends of Satan; ever feeble is indeed the plot of Satan.”[Quran 4:76]
Some American writers have published articles under the title ‘On what basis are we fighting?’ These articles have generated a number of responses, some of which adhered to the truth and were based on Islamic Law, and others which have not. Here we wanted to outline the truth – as an explanation and warning – hoping for Allah’s reward, seeking success and support from Him.” [Source]
There is certainly some connection between teaching of Islam and terrorism. Some people even try to argue that Islam is a religion of peace, as the word ‘Islam’ means peace. This argument has no weight, because a man can be an engineer, even if his surname is Carpenter. By very same logic Islam can be and is the Most Intolerant Religion on face of earth, even if its name mean ‘Peace’. Muslims claim using their Canonical scripture that they don’t fight in holy month of Islam, but this is not true. There are more than 178 deadly terror attacks, 18 suicide bombing, leaving 836 dead and 1646 wounded as on 27th of July 2013. See the evidence:
When Muslims cannot resist themselves from killing Non-Muslims in their Holy Month of Ramadan, think of what can they do, when they are allowed to fight in the below verse by Allah:
And when the sacred months have passed, then kill the polytheists wherever you find them and capture them and besiege them and sit in wait for them at every place of ambush. But if they should repent, establish prayer, and give zakah, let them [go] on their way. Indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful. (Quran 9:5)
Islam never deserved the title “Religion of peace’, since its advent nor it deserve it today. Leave aside Muslims, the very founder of Islam, Muhammad in his entire life time undertook unlimited battles and fought some eight of them. No other reformer, prophet, avatar, etc killed innocent people, because they denied to accept or opposed their faith. There numerous verses from Quran and narrations from Hadith which clearly prove that Islam is the Most Intolerant Religion. Allah commands his followers to get slain to earn reward of here after. Read Quran 4:74, which says:
So let those fight in the cause of Allah who sell the life of this world for the Hereafter. And he who fights in the cause of Allah and is killed or achieves victory – We will bestow upon him a great reward. (Quran 4:74)
Allah exhorts Muslims to keep fighting the unbelievers, until they leave their forefathers religion and accept Islam. Read Quran 8:39, which says:
And fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief and polytheism: i.e. worshiping others besides Allah) and the religion (worship) will all be for Allah Alone [in the whole of the world]. But if they cease (worshiping others besides Allah), then certainly, Allah is All-Seer of what they do. (Quran 8:39)
Now certainly any sane man will say that Islam deserves the title of religion of peace. Instead the best title for Islam is “Most Intolerant and Violent Religion”.
