A Middle school history teacher in a small French town decided to talk about freedom of speech to his pupils, as it is customary. It might even have taken place in the “civic education”
lessons where kids are supposed to learn about the way of the state works, the values behind French culture, and how the legislative system functions.
He is beheaded.
Not because he did an action to disrespect Prophet or Islam in any way. No, he didn’t.
the mindset and a machinery exists, which can create a false mass hysteria, based on indoctrinated religious insecurity and a sense of suppression.
Islam denounces irresponsible
behavior, things that may mislead others from the right and righteous path. That could be defended and needs clarification. However, that was a code for Muslims how to behave. For example, one can’t distort Islam and introduce it as Islam. That’s
a crime, but again the judge must decide. And Judges have an agenda and a narrative.
Just a month ago a Pakistani refugee in France, stabbed a bunch of journalists, thinking that they
were Charlie Hebdo staff because they were working in offices right nearby to the Charlie Hebdo Office.
Radicalization was introduced by Pakistani Military President Zia in late seventies,
as a manner to unite the society. Like the Ghaznavis of yester years, when the oppressed were looted in name of religion, Pakistan Army did same to the Pakistani Population for forty years now and does that till date.
This Radical Islam version of intolerance to others is now being realized as a potent tool by Erdogan, who hides his abysmal record in governance, using restoring Islamic glory days narrative.
Imran Khan and Erdogan could have been more statesmen like, and invited discussion and put across their point of view on religious sentiments. As an Indian, Cartoon on the Prophet or any other
God/Goddess/religious symbol amounting to hurting religious sentiments, need to be progressed legally, through civilized channels.
Sadly their manner of outbursts are as savage, unsavory,
and uncivilized as were their role model marauders of the last 1000 years, and this is the path they are taking their respective countries on.
Due to globalization, populations outside
these two hotspots of terrorism are not untouched, and France has every right to take their fellow Muslim Citizens out of the clutches of Madmen of Islam. For the sake of human values, France could be the first, to initiate the first of reforms in Islam, not
for any other reason, but to salvage and rescue Islam out of the clutches of Radical Islam.
