Muslims leading the war on terror


FaithWorld recently had a post worth reading about how Indian Muslims are fighting the anti-jihad jihad. A snippet:

Apparently a “Movement Against Terrorism” has been created by clerics to exhort imams to use Friday prayers at mosques across India to speak out against terrorism.

This was no flash in the pan. Earlier this year, tens of thousands of clerics and students from around India attended a meeting near Delhi at the 150-year-old Darool-Uloom Deoband — whose strict interpretation of Islamic law is said to have inspired the Taliban in Afghanistan — and denounced terrorism as against Islam.

This is good news, similar to what Lord Hameed said last month and Maher Hathout voiced in February, and it is what we should expect, even if too many Muslims miss this point. Last year’s train bombing was orchestrated by Pakistanis—that is some seriously bad blood—and much of the religious violence in India has been Hindu-incited pogroms against Muslims and also recently against Christians. And you thought only Russians knew how menacing a mob riot could be.
