Islam is not what that is being told in West but it is what that has yet to be told to laypeople in Western societies, they understand well about Islam and Islamic values so they might get along with them with less scary feelings.
Who kills an innocent Soul had killed entire mankind – Interpretation is self-explanatory and substantially strong enough in its definition to justify Islamic likelihood and its practical utility in our social lives. History of Islam is full of agreements, accords, pacts, treaties and defined protocols in order to have peaceful-existence whether with Jews, Christians, Pagans or any other religion of the world. The genuine manuscript of Islam has been preaching only about morality, ethics, peace and love regardless of color, caste creed, and religion. Yet, it’s been pitiful, Islam is being targeted and projected wrongly at large in West merely to undertake their vested interests – nothing more.
For instance – American demagogue, “Dual Trump” obviously I am deliberately using this term for Donald Trump, A person who does not even have sufficient knowledge-base for his own religion how he could have made derogatory language for someone else cultural values or religion especially when it comes to Islam which has “ WAR ETHICS” even at the time of crisis, troops must get hold in their ethics, defines in a way that the corpses of the enemy must not be disgraced or mutilated, residential areas should not be pillaged, plundered or destroyed, nor should the Muslims touch the property of anyone except those who are fighting against them, don’t kill a woman or a child or an old person, and don’t cut trees or ruin dwellings or slay a sheep but for food. Don’t burn palm trees or drown them. And don’t be spiteful or unjust.”
Of course, Islam going against the notion of “Everything is fair in love and war” but it addresses“Everything must be fair in love and war”. A religion which prohibits cutting down a tree in the times of war because it is green and alive, it is barely a possible that it would sermonize its believers to disrupt the peace of the mankind at the cost of innocent lives. Islam is not what that is being told in West but it is what that has yet to be told to lay people in Western societies, they understand well about Islam and Islamic values so they might get along with them with less scary feelings.
Indeed, intense bigotry set of mind is well-known characteristics plays its part tempered by a fewer powerful elite maligning Islam and Muslim simultaneously in order to pursue their agendas against Islam even to somewhat they have succeeded in it. Yet a lot more to get that done, perhaps to bring different civilizations to bloody wars diminishing the peace of the world. Well, If we see through the Western mechanism of democracy, “Majority is Authority” so how would anyone entitle Islam or Muslim bad, based on the fact that a hand full, literally a handful Muslims are being involved in wrongdoing? What about the rest of 1.6 billion Muslims who making their peaceful coexistence every day with other societies from the Asian continent to American continent.
Although, it is not an Islam which is at fault but it is an agenda which has been instigated after the first world war to destabilize the Muslim world through the time-honored formula of divide and rule to protect their interests in the world. The prevailing turbulence in the Middle East from Afganistan to Iraq and Syria to Libya these protracted civil wars in Muslim majority countries are self-produced conflicts for several reasons to maintain influence along with interests in either way.
Yet, “Every cloud has a silver lining” the news coming from the London is miraculously surprising about the election results that Londoners elected a Pakistani Origin Muslim mayor instead to picking up Frank Zacharias Robin “Zac” Goldsmith the son of billionaire businessman and financier Sir James Goldsmith in 2016 London Mayoral elections, who had more strong background and many reasons to win the election against a Muslim candidate but results get him back to home.
It is, therefore, not only an electoral defeat but It is actually an overwhelming victory of the sentiments of harmony and peace against hatred. It has also been a robust message conveyed to those bigots that people across the world are not getting in their trap being parted their ways against each other but vice versa.
