We have tried the Bush way and Obama way of handling terrorism, neither has worked, the first one created more of it, and second one has not mitigated it either. Mike Ghouse, a moderate Muslim offers the Islamic way of handling terrorism.
Here is the plan
After due preparations and consultations, President Obama is requested to deliver a three days notice in behalf of the United Nations to Mr. Baghdadi and his deputies.
“Mr. Baghdadi, you have three days to stop killing innocent people and destroying Allah’s creation; life and environment. If you do not heed the warning, we will hunt down and ambush you wherever you hide. If not, we will gas you guys, few square miles at a time, not to hurt you, but to capture and put you on trial and ask you to give up the false claims you are making about your religion. Mind you, the Muslims soldiers from around the world will be in the front line.
We will give you copies of the Quran and make you read and understand until you get that right – not what is dished out to you by the Ulema (Scholars) of the past, but what God tells you in the Quran.
Quran tells you in 5:32, “If anyone slays a person, it would be as if he slew the whole people: and if any one saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of the whole people.” And “Enjoin doing what is right and forbid what is wrong,” Quran 9:71. The wisdom is simple – God created everything in harmony (55:06-55:10) and you have messed it up big time. And it is our responsibility to forbid you from doing that, and restore harmony and cohesiveness of Allah’s creation.
Allah advises us to be kinder and gentler towards you if you reconsider and surrender. If you repent and bow down toward Allah’s guidance to preserve the balance and harmony of the world around you, we will be lenient. He promises glad tidings to “all” believers (9:112), and we hope you would become a believer in the Quran that you claim to be.
By the way, you don’t own Allah, the Prophet, Islam or the Quran. It is the book of wisdom for the whole humanity and you cannot claim exclusive ownership of it.
Insha Allah, we will be restoring peace and sanity to the planet.
Blaming the religion is the dumbest thing to do, because you cannot beat, kick, hack, shoot, hang, kill or bury a religion, it’s an intangible thing my friend! You can blame the individuals and restore trust and harmony back in the society.
