Even before caring to perform a 2-min silence for victims of a terror attack, horde of ‘Islam means peace’ zombies is ready to shout it’s hollow claims, after every incidence of a successful brainwash by Zakir Naik types.
Watch how anti- terror expert Sanjeev Newar (IIT-IIM, founder – Agniveer) analyses ‘Islam means peace’ claim and thoroughly rips it apart.
(English transcript of the video follows)
Transcript of above Video by Agniveer Sanjeev Newar:
We all are aware of “Islam means peace”. We never heard of “Hinduism means peace/ Christianity means peace/ Buddhism means peace”. But we all are very well aware of “Islam means peace”.
So my question is that if Islam means peace, and peace alone is foundation of Islam, then why is it so that extreme Islam does not mean extreme peace?
On contrary, instead of that, extreme Islam relates to extreme violence!
If a religion’s very foundation is peace, then the most seriously dedicated people to that religion, should the be the most peaceful of all. Then why is it the opposite in case of Islam?
Like take the example of Jainsism – which also has ahinsa (non-hatred) as it foundation. So the most seriously devoted Jains you can observe, take extremely drastic measures to prevent killing-of-beings. Some Jains cover their mouths with a clothing, some take care not to consume food grown underground, since these cause killing of living beings. And when someone among them reaches an extreme phase renunciation, they even entirely give up food-water to sacrifice their own life in order to prevent those killings which they are causing by living!
So in a religion like Jainism, which is based on ahinsa, where peace is primarily most important thing, there an extreme Jain means, an extremely peaceful person!
But in Islam’s case, an extremist Muslim means like a most violent person on Earth! Why this is so? My question is for all those who by constantly shouting “Islam means peace” after every terror incident , try to either bury or distract masses from the issue.
Now I present my answer in very clear terms which is –
Islam does not mean peace. Neither Islam’s dictionary meaning is peace nor is Islam something which focuses on peace in spirit.
Islam is about following :
– following and believing in one Allah, and
– following and believing in prophet Muhammad as his last prophet.
These 2 are the core beliefs of Islam.
I will not go deep into whether or how much these beliefs are right or wrong, or whether people should believe in these beliefs or not, as it’s a subject of people’s own personal beliefs.
But peace is not a specific characteristic of Islam,. Every religion says there should be peace and harmony, including Islam but, no one becomes a Muslim by following peace, nor there’s any correlation of a serious follower of Islam with peace.
Only correlation is how much the follower believes in hazrat Mohammad as the last prophet. And all these disputes happening around the globe are happening because these extremists believe, that other than followers of their own sect, rest of people do not seriously follow and believe in hazrat Mohammad.
Those who openly reject Prophet become non-Muslims, and who are very much allowed to be killed and raped.
And even within the Muslim community whosoever does not believe in their sect, is being traitorous to hazrat Mohammad.
Essence of this is that , Islam means – belief in one Allah, and belief in Hazrat Mohammad as the last prophet.
Islam has nothing to do , either in good or bad way with peace. I dont say Islam means violence. But I definitely say this that Islam does not mean peace.
But yes, someone can counter me and say that Islam does not mean peace, but it means violence. And the same logic will be given as I gave, that had Islam meant peace, extreme Islam should have meant extreme peace. But what we see is that- extreme Islam means extreme violence. Hence, Islam should mean some violence.
Its a good logic. I dont agree to this personally, but if we see logically/ analytically, then I dont currently have any counter logic to falsify this.
